Pros Solid build
No bugs thus far
Excellent features & software
Cons Battery life ( but I knew that going in ). It does charge quickly though.
Summary Though prone to buyer's remorse no such feelings are arising with this purchase. I'm enjoying the heck out of it. Really like my two email accounts synced with it. The Paper Art app for enhancing photos is marvelous.

Pros Size, screen, stylus, multi window,
Cons I haven't found any.
Summary I have the Note2 phone and wanted the tablet. I had been talked into anotherdevict and hated it. I won't say what. I don't want to offend anyone. I had the original 10.1 Samsung tablet and had sold it. I am still planning to get the larger 10.1 with Verizon. I got the wifi 8.0 on ebay at a really good price. I can't put this tab down. It does what I need and although I have the phone and do use it, the real estate on the 8.0 makes some tasks better. A great combination though. I love Samsung and anyone who is in doubt, shouldn't be. This is a great small tablet. The stylus is awesome and I do use it a lot...on both. I am extremely pleased. Being able to customize is important to me. I also use the multi window a lot. There are too many functions and benefits I have with Android and Samsung that I refuse to give up. If you are on the fence about this tablet, don't be. It is so worth it.
Pros Im in sales and have replaced pen/pad with the Note8, good size, very versatile and easy to use.
I was able to customize as a business tool, unlike my previous ipad.
Cons Battery life is terrible, had to download a battery saving app to make it through the day.
Also have to use at half brightness as full will drain battery.
Needs a faster processor, ipad is much smoother and faster.
Summary Great unit but will buy the 2014 note as soon as its out.
Pros Right size and weight balance.
Cons No FM radio and GPS.
Summary When Samsung upgrades Galaxy Note 8 & 10.1 to 4K hopefully, the S-pen's pressure levels will be up from 1,024 to a million pressure levels. That will give this device/gadget a double-WOW-factor..the future is interesting indeed.
Pros Size, weight, speed, battery. Dual windows modus.
Cons No FM radio (or not in the 3G version?)
Screen brigthness and contrast weak compared to iPad mini, retina not to mention.
The default big icon containers.
Summary A nice middle gadget with a high end feature pack.
