No problem with the gadget, but the battery lifetime is s##k. Not merely a year i used it, and i had to charge 3 times a day. The battery are drained so fast.

Guys, I have an issue with my exchange email set up in my Note 8. It was working prefectly until the eaxchange email Suddenly i stopped after updating the latest software update, around two months ago. I deleted the account and been trying to set it up again and once the credentials are entered I get this stupid black screen " unfortunately, the email has stopped"!. I have cleaned up the memory and cashe with no success. Samsung service center in saudi and egypt were not of any help and said that this might be an exchange sever issue. I did explain that the same email is working prefectly fine in my Galaxy S, but they couldn't help. I have tried also the forums which seemed that many other havr the same issue but couldn't really get a straight fix...Appreciate the help

I've been using my n5120 8.0 tablet for about 2 month so far. Absolutely in love with it. Best device i've had so far.

Probably, i'm the only user to use it like a phone! So far i've been using it like my primary and only phone. I carry a little bag with me where i put my wallet, sunglasses etc, and there goes the Note too. Most times it's convenient enough, except for occasions i go running/dancing - when i have to leave the phablet behind, cause it's too clunky - can't put it on my arm (!) like i used with galaxy s2, while running. The ideal solution for this is probably a smartwatch. Maybe even a smartwatch with a sim.

My primary use of the tablet is a notebook. Since i bought it, i stopped using paper to write down. Using samsung note software to create full-size notebooks at work with the pen. I then back up those files to gdrive automatically. For paper-haters, like me, it's a life saver! The pen works really well. Samsung's software is very neat. It can recognize handwritten staff and convert to typed symbols.

The battery life is a downside. When i use it at work, writing with s-pen for about 8 hours (some of it with screen on) the battery is over at about 17.00, even before the day is over. I wish there were some battery saving feature for note taking. I guess, i'll buy an external battery accumulator to solve it, cause when you rely on your tablet at your primary tool for everything incl. business, you can't afford to have it shut down with no power. Probably an average user will have a 1 full day of battery, but no more than that.

One comment i met in reviews, about the low screen resolution, in my view, is a bullshit. The screen is amazing, very bright and clear, you will love it, no matter what other devices have out there.

Camera works well so far. In too month of use haven't been to dark places, where flash would be needed, so didn't suffer from the lack of flash. This was the biggest issue for me before buying, but now very happy i gave up on flash. Anyway i have my old galaxy s 2 with flash if needed. I'm note a photography heavy user, anyway.

2MB of RAM is amazing. Note never freezes/lags as my galaxy s2 used to do so many times, when ran out of memory. The RAM counter stays around 1.2 after cleaning RAM, with only a few apps at the background, and around 1.5-1.6 at use. S2 would've crashed long ago, with fewer apps at the background. So 2GB of RAM at least is a must! (i have more than 60 apps on the Note)

The screen is huge, have 4 times more screen space than i had on my s2 phone! Excellent for browsing, video watching, writing, of course.

You'll need a case to protect it and i suggest the one that keeps both sides of it protected, a book style case, for example. This tablet doesn't have gorilla glass, so better protect the screen!

Bottom line: super recommended for note-takers/paper-haters/business oriented users etc! Great for productivity and pleasure combined
