Good: 5 Stars
Comment: 5* all the way
Good: Absolute brilliant piece of kit
Bad: Waiting for Jelly Bean update
Comment: I already have an iPad, but this Samsung knocks spots off it. Probably the best Tech out there at the moment for tablets. Mine's running ICS but I've seen what the JB update can do and I can't wait:-)
You can certainly disregard most of the review above as CNET are renown for favouring Apple products and just seem to trash all other tables. Samsung is a serious contender and it's one of the best purchases I've made over the years.
Comment: Easy to use :) as I'm new to android :)
Nice looking design very light weight
great micro SD card slot!
Photo & video/movie quality could be better :(
I will get a 7 inch tablet that's more portable & more practical to hold with better screen picture quality :)
Good battery life :)
Also I've no use for the pen :(
Good: it has writing and drawing facility..that is a big PLUS
Bad: BATTERY IS NOT REMOVABLE
Comment: I WOULD LOVE TO OWN THIS TABLET BUT I WILL NOT BE BUYING IT.....I WANT A REMOVABLE RECHARGEABLE BATTERY WHICH I CAN CHARGE ON AN EXTERNAL BATTERY CHARGER WHILE I USE THE TABLET WITH A SPARE BATTERY INSIDE IT.WHEN WILL THE DAY COME WHEN WE CONSUMERS WILL BE HEARD BY THESE MANUFACTURERS THAT WE NEED REMOVABLE BATTERIES IN OUR GADGETS.MY GALAXY NOTE ALLOWS ME THIS OPTION AND I LOVE THAT FACILITY.IT ALSO FEELS SAFER FOR ME TO CHARGE MY BATTERY ON AN EXTERNAL CHARGER.I ALWAYS CHARGE BATTERIES EXTERNALLY AND I DO NOT LIKE MANUFACTURERS DENYING ME THIS OPTION IN A TABLET...WOULD SOME EXPERTS PLEASE SPEAK UP OR AT LEAST TELL ME IF I AM BEING STUPID THINKING THE WAY I DO ? THANKS
Good: S-Pen, multiscreen, Everything!
Comment: Super duper mooper amazing tablet. Good for taking/making notes, taking to meetings/conferences, great for editing pics, amazing allround. You can add memory, get an extra keyboard. Just love it.
Good: S-pen, Quad Core, HD Micro SD and it's not a bloody Apple product
Bad: No USB charger or USB drive support
Comment: I like the sound of this tablet and it seems it will be able to sync with my S2 quite easy. I think the ability to take notes while watching videos and browsing the web will be useful. Editing photo's using the S-pen will be much easier then using a mouse. Quad core and 2GB of ram sounds great and just the tablet I've been looking for. Really want one of these....
Good: the design the s pen watching movies
Bad: can't sync with my power book
Comment: I have an iphone 4s and a mac power book so I am a mac fan but I don't like the ipad because it is so similar to my mac book and doesn't do anything my mac book can do.
A lot of fuss has been made about the build quality, it looks cheap the back panel depresses when pressed. I love the design and it doesn't feel cheap. Light weight easy to write on I love it. By the way the lid of the mac books do the same thing the lid is very thin and dips in when pressed. As a mac fan i cannot understand the poor reviews the samsung has had. The ipad was the best I feel this tablet is much better samsung has improved on the theme apple haven't. Retina screen yeah so what how do I use that but the s pen ...... amazing.
The s pen is one of the main reasons I bought the Samsung this is a tablet kids will love students will love the note taking abilities among all the other features in comparison the ipad is boring and is just a mac pc without a keyboard apple has yet to capitalize on the real benefits of a tablet Samsung has.
Good: I love the S pen
Comment: We just ported our puzzle game Sudoku Logic to Android for Samsung specifically for this tablet. We love the tablet and the S pen - it has made our game even better than before.
It's a fantastic bit of kit.
Good: Amazing, iPad killer.
Bad: Screen could be a little better, who cares though, still plays 1080p!
Comment: This is amazing... truly... immaculate.
