I wanted a tablet why because everyone else had one and said you can't live without one! and I thought it would help my daughter with her school work(I'm an over 40+ mom)- I had no idea how to use one before buying this (I'm not very computer freindly-not even a smart phone) the salesman was very knowledgeable explained a whole lot of things I didn't understand(even after he explained it) but I bought it because he ended his explaination with it's really very easy to use it tells you what you need to know(mostly) I have had it for a month now and LOVE it and it is very easy to use and it does everything and more then I thought it could or would do. it almost can replace my laptop for what I use it for and it "makes" things available to me that I didn't know I needed or could use did I say I love it and it plays great movies,wonderful as an e-reader etc..it's not to heavy and fits into my purse the only thing I can complain about with this is it is about 1/8" to big to fit into cases made for ipads and I tried alot of them (I really wanted a leather one or designer one) but ended up buying one made just for it (in pink) online- there just aren't many choices of cases for it out there and the stores themselves didn't have many choices (including sears as well as quite a few other electronic stores) so thats my biggest complaint it took a month to find a nice cover for it and had to purchase a sleeve for it while I looked to protect it(it would also have been nice if it came with screen protecters or if they were available when I bought the tablet)
i had this and an ipad... needless to say IPAD SO MUCH BEtteR
I've had my tablet for 1 1/2 years now, and I have had no problems with it. I find I use it more than my laptop now. I didn't think I would like reading on a tablet, but I was wrong. I had some surgery recently, and the ease of downloading a book kept me from going insane while I was down. At first, I was having trouble reading outside, but I discovered the Kindle app has an adjustment with the fonts that fixed this problem. The battery life is still excellent. I take my tablet to a friends cabin that doesn't have power quite often, and read all day. I do keep a portable power backup with me, but rarely use it, My daughter has an Ipad, and I can't see the advantage.
This tablet is fun/easy to use overall. The battery life is great! Not super heavy and it is easy to hold in my lap. I love the clear, bright screen. However sometimes I dislike when I turn it off it comes back on but then I realize that maybe it has to do with a software update. Not sure but I've noticed after it updates, the problem clears up. But I do love my tablet and would recommend it to others.
Bought this a year ago for my wife, but my kids use it just as much (9 and 6yrs old) and it in someone's hand most of the day...Very durable. no complaints does everything we need it to
This tablet is great. It can be a little confusing to use at first because it is not as simple to use as the ipad but one can quickly learn to use it. Not all apps are available but it has a great selection. The Galaxy tablet is considerably cheaper compared to the ipad.
