Breaks easily. Not as good quality as other tablets i purchased previous years.
Tablet itself is good but quality of the material used to make is very cheap. I have purchased 5 tablets and all my tablets have cracked screen within 3 months of purchase. My kids are old enough and i assure that they handle it very well. It easily breaks despite i purchased shock proof case covers that were 40 dollars each. Charger covers are all out.very very cheaply made. So expensive to buy but samsung seems to be a scammer too. As parents we need to spend every 6 months to 1 year on new tablets. This is how samsung ripping people of...f. But in the eyes of the law they are legitimate business but they scamming consumers by making product of inferior quality. It would be nice to hear if there are other parents who had experienced what i did.
Had an older version of sumsung tablet. Was awesome! :
Included a pen, which was inserted into the tablet. Free and not to be lost.
Was best thing for notes. Could rest hand on screen and write.
No need for battery for the pen, no need to recharge.
Now got a new one.
Had to spend $100 on top of tablet to get a pen.
Can't be inserted nor attached to tablet, only a matter of time before I loose the thing.
Has to be recharged every second day....
_Samsung as usual Excellent Engineering_
Samsung TAB 10.1 tablet SM T580
Alright a products not much good untill you used it for at least 12 months or more correct?
Well the Samsung TAB 10.1 is an excellent piece of gear.
I purchased at Harvey Norman 12 months ago.
For the $300 price tag a real bargain.
2 GB RAM is good enough for everyday basic internet e- mails/ web browsing on my tablet and i don't use my stupid extra smart mobile any more.
Longish battery recharge as battery ages but no replacement is likely soon.
Samsung batteries I found are always long lasting and reliable.
It won't multi task like a PC would, but split screen function is handy for quick web browser page/ document save and read later....
We have 7 tablets in our home for multiple purposes. 10" for the adults and ,7" for the kids. They have been great with no problem whatsoever. No issues with apps, connectivity, or games. Kids mode is great. Only downside is that it doesnt take much to break. Would be awesome if there was a cover included moreso for kids. Id he happy to pay a bit extra if included. Otherwise all roubd satisfaction.
Not so Happy
The Samsung Tab A 7.0 keeps turning off, it appears it may have a sensitive area on the edge of the screen. Its quite annoying. Has anyone else had similar experiences. The rest of the system appears to be alright as i use it for my 6 year old grandson, anyone else experience similar issues?
Great Tablet but a little slow for today.
I still use this Tablet most days where I find it lags a bit now that it's kind of old. It still works fine tho where you can use social media fine, browse the internet, etc.. but when it comes to games it's lags allot cause this model is a bit old.
Great budget tablet for kids
Review is on the lenovo tab7.7" 16GB
I personally was in the market for a little tablet for my 2yr old (soon will purchase one for a 7yr old due to her ipad mini broke) but overall if your shopping for a budget device to keep the kids entertained, i feel like I myself made the right choice.
The resolution isn't that great but i don't know what you expect from a $96 dollar electronic to have but it surely outdone my daughters ipad mini (one of the older generation that was bought 5years ago)
Youtube, games & foxtel did amazing on it.... people did say it lagged abit but i had no trouble whatsoever being with Telstra..
And my daughter games has not crashed yet..
Webage has become unresponsive.......wait or close, if you were unlucky enough to buy one of these c
blets get used to this message because you have purchased an inferior product that does not deliver and even now they are tryiing to make it difficult for me to submit this review. To submit this review I'm being forced to type in another sixteen words so I'll just say SAMSUNG sux!
Really good shame it's discounted
I've had it for 4 years and it's great. Graphics are brilliant and it doesn't run very hot or slow. A bit thing for me is portability and battery life which have no problem. I carry it so often and my pencil case probably weighs more. Easily lasts a vkuolr of days with moderate use. Only negative is that it's didcontinued so accessories eg keyboard are hard to come by.
Good but not great
I'm glad I bought this Tablet because it has made my life easier in so many ways. I can read books, browse the internet and record video. I'm not pleased with the limited amount of gig space or the tap screen, though. Cleaning is no longer enough to ensure usability. I get very frustrated when I have to repeatedly tap the screen and nothing happens and for this reason now use the device mostly for reading ebooks and just do my surfing on my computer. I'm hoping to upgrade to a better tablet soon or just buy a smart phone.
I think this is a good tablet for basic functionality. I find that it gets quite slow as you install more apps and have more apps running consequently in the background. I tried a factory reset to clear all the apps and it did improve the speed slightly but not as much as I would've imagined. Right now there are plenty of tablets in the market so I would definitely do the research before purchasing.
A champion tablet killed by it's maker's own hand
This was a total winner of a tablet for about 3 months. Sadly the manufacturer Samscum provided virtually no support for it and the GT-P6810 faded into the history books, never to see anything higher than Android 4.04. If a 4.22 ROM had been developed, this tablet would still be somewhat useful today. Unfortunately it is, and has been for most of it's life completely useless.
I bought this tablet a few years ago, I had to get the charging port replaced, which wasn't expensive though. Otherwise no problems at all. It does everything I need it to do. Works well, I'm happy with it. Small, slimline, fast, easy to charge. I woukd repurchase if it was still available!
Not the greatest.
This isn't the greatest tablet I've used. However I still manage to use it for its intended purchase. It was inexpensive at the time I bought it. It was fast to use for about 2 months then it slowed right down. Even after I factory reset it. I wouldn't buy a Samsung tablet again after this experience.
Worth the price
Bought this nearly 4 years back and it works perfectly. It's perfect for basic functions such as email, playing simple games, surfing the net etc. It's not very high-tech and I'm sure there are better models out there now. It serves the purpose of what was required at the time of purchase and works fine even now.
What I like about it:
* Has more reading apps, including from major international newspapers, and some give a free trial
* Bigger screen than mobile so can watch videos like YouTube in bed, and not as heavy as laptops
What could be improved:
* on screen keyboard could be bigger so easier to type
An OK tablet
Mixed feeling about it. I got it as a present so no complains :) BUT - speed has vary a lot over time and it needs lots of maintenance. Saying that - my kids are using it for games and it hasn't broke, I have been using it for more than 2 years now.
i bought this last year, at very began was alright, but only 3 months after, has all this little problem started, firstful tclick on the screen not very easy to use, then the speed gets slowly, after the charge has problem, luckly i didnt spend too much money on it
It worked well in the beginning but soon there were problems such as home button not responding when pressed. Upon more research it seemed that it was a common problem but unfortunately it was already pass the warranty period. Quite disappointed as my mother's iPad is still in working condition even though she bought hers before me.
Great product ... however
Relatively sluggish performance and better to be used as a youtube/video player as anything else causes the processor to slow down excessively. I would of preferred to have purchased a smaller unit given the opportunity, however at $200 you can't complain to be honest. Samsung never let down and I will pursue further later
