"Serious touch screen bug"2.0 starson by kwaters89
Pros: Great look, feel, weight. Very fast.. unfortunately the touch screen has a major bug
Cons: Touch screen freezing/becoming unresponsive on a regular basis
Summary: Having read your review and fallen for all the hype surrounding this product, I went out and bought myself one. I don't have a particular need for a tablet computer but I decided to treat myself (and at £500, it's some treat). After a couple of hours playing and getting to grips with it, I started to notice a very irritating problem - at times the touch screen will become completely unresponsive, usually for 5-10 seconds.
Playing simple games for example, as soon as the game becomes intense, almost on cue the touch screen stops responding and you're just sitting there uselessly swiping your finger over it.
Problem with the app you might think? Well no because this has happened continuously and regularly with several different apps and games, including Google Maps. In this case the touch screen will stall and become unresponsive for 5-10 seconds, before force closing the app.
This is a SERIOUS bug, and yet I see no mention of it in this review whatsoever? It's very annoying to see someone endorse a product when it's main feature (the touch screen) clearly has a major in built flaw. I've never had this issue with Google Maps (or other apps) on any of my smart phones or other touch screen devices. I think If you'd given the product a thorough testing you would have noticed this bug the same as I did.
It's extremely disappointing and highly frustrating to buy something on the basis of what you think is a reliable review and then find out you've basically been fleeced for £500 for a product with an obvious and serious bug, which now I can do nothing about.
I'm left with a very frustrating, glitchy, unreliable product in regards to both hardware and/or software that doesn't perform to anywhere near the standard that's suggested here. I would advise anyone else reading this who is thinking of spending their money on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to look elsewhere, or prepare to be disappointed.
