The Tablet is Great
I LOVE the tablet! The picture is amazing. It's fast. I LOVE the S Pen. The sound on it is unbelievable. Even without headphones but with really good headphone it's like you are there live! The ONLY reason I did not give this five stars, is EVERYONE is correct. The tablet does NOT fit in the easel case! Not sure how they can send something that does not fit. Otherwise the tablet is great! The Tablet gets five stars.
I love my new Samsung Note. It does most every thing I wanted in a tablet plus some nice surprises.
There are things I wished I would have known about it that may have influence my choice, so I am going to write about them first.
1-)Cannot print except on a samsung wireless printer- not an easy find and a forced samsung printer buy. I hate this forced buying technique in any product. I have found a way around it but it takes a few more extra steps. You have to save to an external source like dropbox or cloud and then can print after you download an app for your wireless printer.
2-) the charging cord is very short so don't expect to use it with ease while its charging. Not a problem unless you use a lot of wifi... that sucks the battery fast. I bought this for wifi use so you can see my frustration maybe. I have replaced the cord but its pricey.
3-) I really like the pen option... another reason I chose this tablet. What I did not know is you can only use it in certain apps. Not in email or other major uses for a high end tablet.
4-) The charging location is at the bottom, making it hard to sit in a standing position while charging.
5-) The leather jacket that comes with it does not fit good. There is a buckle on both sides of the frame of the cover. It also covers the remote/beam light. My next item to replace.
6-) There is no usb port or easy docking station. Finding accessories for my Note is not as easy as I thought. I believe with increase popularity this issue will desolve itself.
7-) The email and other writing apps does not have a built in spell check. Not like issue. But this would not have changed my mind.
8-) I wished there was more pen and audio features.
Past the above mentioned, that I am learrning a way around but not with ease, the overall product is incredible. I have used the ipad and feel this tablet and the android technology is far superior in abilities and performance. I love that I can use the tablet also as a tv guide and remote... hope they upgrade that for premium channels soon.
I do wish, now that I see every thing about the tablet first hand, that I could connect it to my verizon account, but thats no real biggie with my phone as a hot spot except two battery issues in use and too many steps to get to what I want to do. I would love to use my tablet in my car for gps or accessing my work outside of a wifi hotspot. But that is the least of my dislikes and has a solution with an expensive hotspot plan that I do not want to buy.
I am thrilled despite the listed "don't like items. For the main reasons I wanted a tablet this does way above my expectation and unless a product comes out with the fixes I would like, this is my best choice. Samsung rocks except the printer monopoly. That is an Apple method that I detest and refuse to buy Apple because of it. I hope this is the only time I see it in Samsung.
I love the way it automactically syncs with my droid phone. Contacts, appointments, photos and musics always accessible on both.
I know that the above dislikes will be found on most products plus more that I could not work around so I feel my choice in tablets was the best available at time of purchase.
My recommendation is buy it -you will love it!
Great Tablet, Horrible Case!
The tablet is amazing, very quick and the pen is very responsive. However the case that comes with mine is useless it doesn't fit at all.
So far, so good.
I recieved this tablet on Friday, today is Monday and I am really impressed with this Samsung Tablet. This is my third tablet and the best so far. It is fast and very easy to use. The case that was included in the package deal is a tad small but the tablet can be squeezed into it. There are a couple things that i don't care for but can live with,. The first being the charging jack is on the bottom of the tablet. So to use the tablet with the charging cord attatched is not easy. Also when the tablet is in the case you cannot charge the tablet with the cover closed. The second thing Iam not happy with is the ear phone plug is on the top of the tablet. I guess I am used to my Toshiba Thrive where these jacks are on the side of the tablet. But these are small inconveniences over all. I anticipate this Samsung will continue to meet all my expectations
Easel Case DOES NOT fit
Do not order this one. It's an extra 20.oo for the case but it doesn't fit. How can I send just the case back for one that fits?
Re the Tablet: I love it!! Just wish I could get flash installed.
I received my Galaxy Note tablet on Thursday, and after a few days with it, I really like it. I have owned a couple of pretty good android tablets to include Asus, Acer, and Samsung, and this is definitely an upgrade. However, I ordered with the Easel Case, and the tablet will not fit into the case. This is the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.
