Samsung galaxy tab Wish I had got one earlier brilliant easy to use its light to carry and had all The apps you need 25 March 2014
very user friendly!! I bought this for my wife now I can't get her of it, she is so happy with the samsung tablet, she has found it very easy to use, and has now bought some speakers for it and down loads and watches programmes that she has missed., and also we got £30.00 worth of John Lewis vouchers with their offer, what more could you want. 18 March 2014
great value fast tablet! The design of the tablet is one of its best features with its thin bezels compared with much more expensive tablets and striking red colour make a premium looking devise that wouldn’t look out of place at business meetings. The android experience is overall very fast with apps opening and loading quickly with only the occasional stutter when the CPU is maxed out from intensive games or many apps open consecutively. The Samsung overlay [touchwiz] is colourful with added functionality and the Google play store is packed with entertaining and functional tablet specific apps that take advantage of the high quality colourful LCD TFT display that reacts to touch gestures, taps and swipes very responsively. The speakers are loud with good base, treble, lows and highs however they can be easily covered with the palm of my hands when holding in portrait orientation. Finally the battery [4000mh] life is superb, lasting a 30 hour coach journey with continuous music playback and the odd hour of gaming or typing documents on the already installed office suite. The only real negative point is that the android version is only on 4.1.2 but hopefully will be updated soon to 4.3. Overall this is a high quality tablet with quick navigation and a good screen, well worth the price john Lewis is selling it at. 18 March 2014
An Average product This is an average product, it keeps freezing and requires restarting often. Does not have screen mirroring option. 11 March 2014
Very Slow, sluggish tablet, keep crashing I had to return my tablet within weeks, it kept crashing, reboot itself while I was middle of my work, wouldn't come back for good 20 min. I hardly downloaded any app still so much inconvenience it caused. 11 February 2014
