Using this awesome tablet for about a year and I'm really satisfied with its performance. If a phablet is way too small for you and you can't put up with a chunky 10-inch tablet then this 8-inch charm is yours. The device is quite responsive, the screen is sharp with acceptable view angles and I've installed all kinds of games and applications on the device without running into one single problem, in addition, the pen comes in handy when it comes to taking notes or drawing something simple. however the downsides are the occasional overheatings (for me 3 or 4 times during this one year period) and the very long recharge time and mediocre battety life.
Best device ever made fot tablet.... ignore the others if you're wise u will buy it
Does anyone else have the problem of 'Device is overheating?' My family gave me one for my birthday and my husband bought one for himself shortly after. Within a year, mine started the overheating message. I took it in and had the motherboard replace. Now my husband's is doing the same.
Why do the overheat? We hardly use them. No sim card in so only used on wifi.
For the most part, it's a stable and speedy Note.
My only peeve is now after 2 years (bought it in July 2013), it wouldn't charge anymore.
I've used the same charger (it came with) with other devices and it is charging other devices just fine.
Perhaps the USB port board is f**ked, but shit, Samsung, what the eff??
My opinion, get the S series for the better PPI density and better spec, the Tab A seems like something dropped at sea and washed up ashore.
jojo, 20 Jun 2015hi guys i dont know if i put the sim card in the wrong way and may be i have damaged the sim... moreI have the same issue with my galaxy note 8. I believe the issue is caused my insertion of a cut down sim card. When I first got the note i was on team mobile. The people at their office cut down my standard sim card so it could be used in the micro slot. Unfortunately the micro sim is also thinner than the standard car so cutting it down still leaves you with a thicker card and that spreads the contacts to the point where a micro sim will not make consistant contact if you ever get a sim that isn't cut down.
I am very excited for this tablet , it looks very beautiful and good , i want to get one of it

There is the normal sim card, for smartphones, which you can also put it in the tablet and you can make phone calls. Your sim card is for portable wireless routers or internet stick.

Anonymous, 20 May 2015Hi, when Samsung will release android 4.5 version for note 8? they'll do, won't they?The is no such thing as Android 4.5.The best case scenario will be that Samsung to release Android 5.0.1 for this device.
