Kay Bee Kol, 27 Feb 2017I bought this if Feb 2014. It gave good service only for three months. Twice to service centre... moreMight be tablet and might be user. Mine lasted 4.5 years before battery decayed. Fairly regular use to read ebooks. But I kept WiFi off except when necessary to download and brightness down. Did not drop it on hard floors too many times. Seldom plugged in external devices other than SD card.
Between us varying user experience sounds very similar to cell phone experiences. A few bad devices and a fairly wide range of user care yields "your mileage may vary". Always laugh when people admit to what amounts to thoughtless abuse (e.g. dropped in toilet or washing electronics in sink then try using them without drying, etc etc). have no idea if yours was bad device or whether you had absurd expectations of conditions the device could survive.
Could even have been a cheap/bad USB charger that fried the battery and internal electronics. That is neither device or user issue beyond the selection of bad alternative charger instead of original DELL charger (easy enough to lose).
Moran, 05 May 2017Its a shit like tablet! 2 years passed and i started to have problem with the battery, and now... moreCheap user. Its like a 9 USD battery replacement on Ebay for a tablet originally retailing around 200 USD.
And really 2 years is not bad if you use tablet juice heavily (WiFi and high brightness all the time). Comparable or better than most cellphones.
Battery in mine lasted 4.5 years before it got flakey. But I turned off WiFi most the time once I had downloaded read material etc. Also dimmed brightness to lowest level were use was easy.
Its been working really good since 2015 Jan. Dont upgrade the OS. otherwise it`ll work fine.

Dell says this battery n.a. anymore. Stuck with this junk tablet of Dell - such a renowned co. No one should buy Dell products... They want uto buy new device every two years. Utter waste of money !!
After 2 years of daily working with the tablet, the only problem its amazon prime video, that does not support Intel processors any more, everything else working perfect!
The worst tab ever! Please do not buy this.it hangs for evry app I open ,it does not charge property.memory card reading is too slow .I am really disappointed with this tab
I have this tablet for over a couple of years ( the wi-fi only version ), it's great tablet, served me for a long time but, recently it started lagging and my other only complain is that the screen reflects light a lot that I can see my reflection in it, still think it was a good buy for the price compared to others at the time I did buy it. But at least it's better than the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite.

The DELL service centre at Cochin fools the customers saying that hanging of this device around its (DELL) logo, frequent shutting down, inability to switch on the tab etc are NOT manufacturing defects, but the users fault! I never expected such response during the warranty period.
