Summary: The size is perfect, streaming AV playback is excellent, and the S-pen (unique to Samsung) feature is a blast. Overall the best of all tablets I researched (and I checked out all the major players). Arguably a bit pricey compared to others, but worth the extra few dollars for the brilliant screen output and variety of S-pen functions. Also, very nice looking in brown/black.
Summary: I purchased this for my son and he really likes it. It was a replacement for a Sony tablet. The clarity of the screen and speed of the tablet is keeping him very busy. I would buy recommend this tablet. I have iPad's and have had other Android tablets and this one is the best one I have had to date.
Summary: The main reason l chose this tablet was for the handwriting recognition, which is much better than I expected. There are times that I get to writing quickly and sloppily and l think, "I can't even read that- no way it can.'' And about half the time, it pops up the correct word. It reads both print and cursive, as well as combinations thereof. My only complaint is that it has a tendency to capitalize c, s, and m at the beginning of words.
