4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tablet for daily use BUT....overpriced, 2 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8020) LTE white Telekom - sim-free (Personal Computers)
Tablet as described, great for daily use, running smooth but if you expect great display, you will be disappointed with 1280x800 and ~149 ppi pixel density.

I will describe and score how I see every aspect of this tablet on the scale from 1 to 10.

PRODUCT QUALITY (7/10)
Plastic case looks quite cheap, not amazed, unprotected slots except SIM card slot and MicroSD, when holding occasionally pressing VOL +/- or POWER button accidentally. Battery built in so cannot be replaced at home and warranty is only 6 months for the battery (see battery section), screen surface hasn't got any scratch protection such as gorilla glass or similar so screen protector is a MUST

PROCESSOR (10/10)
Quad core processor handles all applications and games very good, tablet runs smoothly, not lagging or freezing even with "heavy" multitasking. No doubt it will last for a long time

CONNECTIVITY (10/10)
Wi-Fi no problems here but I didn't have chance to test 3G/LTE yet and I will re-edit this section after receiving SIM card. Wi-Fi Direct OK, USB OK.

SOUND (10/10)
Great quality sound from stereo speakers in the front as well as headphones, BT headset. No problems.

BATTERY (9/10)
Battery is inbuilt so this is a little con but it's amazing how long it lasts for!!! With normal use, wifi on, gps on etc - one charging 2 days and 7 hours!!!!! But charger included has very short cable so I recommend to buy longer one for couple of pounds as it may be annoying...

FIRMWARE (8/10) Android Jelly Bean 4.1.3
Well, it's OK, fast booting and restarting, interface user friendly. It has an ERROR - on the left side of the screen there is google search frame and at least in my case when I tap on it app freezes and after few secs crashes. Many apps designed for S-Pen such as S-Note could be done easier to use...Generally JB is OK but not perfect. Good for daily use. For multitasking only selected apps can be used (unless you have root access ;) ). Bottom slide menu appears on the screen all the time so sometimes even when watching full screen film you see it therefore you don't have full screen film :/ ...

SCREEN/DISPLAY (4/10) - THE BIGGEST CON
It says in the product description that screen resolution is 1280x800 with 149 ppi but in practice it looks very poor. If you're looking for great quality picture movie watching or gaming this tablet is not for you. But 2014 version.
It wouldn't be very big problem for daily use but sometimes even text if small font is not clear and you have to zoom it. You can get used to it but for such a high price you could expect something better. Glassy screen shows every fingerprint if used with hand, not the S-Pen so screen protector - a must.

CAMERA (7/10)
Front 1,9 Mpix - great picture quality for video calls
Rear 5 Mpix - generally good for tablet but pictures often blurry and difficult to set focus. Good but my 5 Mpix digital cam 10 yo makes 100x better quality pix...For tablet - OK though.

PRICE (4/10)
Definitely too high for these specs. LTE version is not officially released in the UK so all imported from China and UK Customs make this tablet about 30% more expensive - cannot fully blame Samsung here. For example it's much cheaper in Germany (check german Amazon) Anyway, display loses here and Nexus 10 for about the same price wins in this category.

AVERAGE SCORING from above is 7,66 and it seems to be fair to round it down to 7,5 so,

OVERALL SCORE: 7,5/10
--------------
* 30-pin slot forces you to buy extra cable if you want to use OTG for pendrive, mouse, keyboard etc...
* S-Pen amazingly makes using the tablet much easier with Air Gesture and screen gesture it can make your life much easier :) slot seems stable - will see in long term...
* MicroSD slot is quite annoying because when inserting microsd card you have to use something (e.g. pen) to push it in, can't do that with your finger.

This is review after one week of using this tablet so if something will change or come up on my mind I will re-edit this review. If you have any questions please contact me, I'll be happy to answer your questions...

I hope this review helped you with your decision :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than any other pad.(and I've had a few), 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8020) LTE white Telekom - sim-free (Personal Computers)
The best 10" pad on the market. The system is quick, the network is quick, (4G LTE) the battery lasts 3 days plus for me , and finally the days of carrying all that paper around have gone. Without the S pen it's just another pad, but get the s pen out and it becomes a whole new device.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Company to Deal With! - Prompt Delivery & Great Customer Service., 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8020) LTE white Telekom - sim-free (Personal Computers)
I am writing this review because the company where great to deal with. I ordered the Galaxy Note, it came within a couple of days. But there was a misunderstanding with the model number. I phoned them to see if they had the model number I requested but they did not, so I organised the return and I found them to be very polite and helpful. A 5 Star service and a 5 Star Company. I would not hesitate in buying from this company now or in the future. Many Thanks.
