Pros The size was exactly what I needed. It fit neatly in my purse and had a range of apps I would use for work, entertainment, and home use. I loved having my daily schedule right on the home page. Fires up quickly.
Cons The Tab kept freezing up. Sometimes the browser, sometimes other programs. I hated that Evernote had to have a connection to work, unlike the version for the iPod. It just won't work reliably enough for my needs. I got frustrated and returned it.
Summary I'm ditching this and thinking about the iPad 2. I'm a little wary of many products out there because I've owned so many gadgets, many of which just didn't pan out. So far the old iPod Touch has been the most reliable, so I'm hoping the iPad follows suit. Just wish they had a medium size about the size of the Galaxy Tab.
Pros Beautiful Display - Easy to use
Cons Samsung has virtually abandoned the Galaxy Tab.
Summary Samsung has virtually abandoned the Galaxy Tab will all update support. Already, they are talking about Android 2.3 and 3.0 on future models, yet they refuse to upgrade the original Galaxy Tab or commit to any future support. I would not recommend this or any other Samsung product to anyone based on their total lack of support and communication. If I could, I would want a full refund. A total waste of money based on Samsung's lack of support.
Pros - Quick start up
- Easy to use even for a non android starter.
- Access to android market means you can download exactly what you want as an App.
- Excellent Camera quality and easy photo viewing.
- AllShare helps.
- Quick connection to Apps
Cons - Just need some more video calling apps.
- Phone calling is disabled in US :(
- Heavy sites are slow to load but again this isnt a problem
Summary The Pros that I have mentioned are more than enough reasons to like this product. There is nothing that I cant do with this tab. I was able to watch a live sporting event online which wasnt possible on the IPAD for obvious reasons. (Flash Player). Great device to have for reasonable price. !! 3g works great and wifi connects automatically when in the range tp preserve 3g data usage !! :)! !
Pros Great size. Love how I could fit it in my back pocket or inside a coat pocket. Was also a head turner. Cant believe how many people would ask me "what is that thing?!" Sleek design. Many features that the ipad doesn't have, which is why I bought it.
Cons Freezes often, after 2 days I had to power it off and back on. After 31 days i returned it to Verizon because it had died. I was charged a 70$ restocking fee, very upsetting. Wish Samsung would pick up the tab, not my fault there putting out junk!
Summary Great size and features. Great concept but just not ready for the market. Perhaps the next version will be better, cant be worse, or can it? Buyer beware
Pros opens flash web sites, great for e-reader apps, news papers, games. good internet access
Cons haven't been able to find any way to be able to copy text from received emails so that i can paste it into another text. also, havent found any spell check on the e-mail applications either.
Summary love having it. as a sales rep i'm starting to use it to show customers my company web site during meetings and large screen makes reading e-mails a little easier while still small enough that it fits inside a classic size planner/ cover. love reading my Nook app and newspaper apps on it as well.
