Definitely we're all stuck to Android 4.4.2, an expensive device not to have even Stagefright flaw update! I need the pen, but need the security and updating too. I don't even say sorry, just "shame on Samsung and this was a very bad joke!". Before the end of the year, I'm back to Windows with pen for professional use and flash another rom on the Note just for kicks. No Lollipop with new TouchWiz, no more Samsungizz.
lanalana, 10 Sep 2015Which is the best tab s or note 10.10.1 edition tab s for its design and super amoled display !!
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2015my Note 10.1 2014 edition just could not come on after I had put off 2hrs later having used it... moreI had faced a similar issue last Dec. It was dead after the charge went to 0% (I think so). and then never came back. Power button didnt work home didnt work. I kept it for 3 months (as it was out of warranty and repair would cost me a new tablet), I just tried my luck and plugged to charge, surprised it worked. Here are some observation, you should always use the charger supplied with the device along with charging cable supplied(the charging current seems to be very high), second I have never let the charge go to rock bottom. Now this device is just for watching youtube videos and FB. Apart from that there is no useful purpose I do with this device for which it works fine.
yahiaspeaks, 09 Sep 2015Do not buy this device if you want access to systems that are beyond 4.4.2. Samsung did no... moreThe device is pretty good, have been using it for a very long time - nearly two years now. It is true that it never recieved any updates after kit kat. But then again it is samsung - getting 1 update is rare let alone 2nd. The company it self has to be blamed as they are extremely focussed on new devices and do not think of the old ones. I have heard lollipop is in works but i dont think it will reach the users any time soon. I hope samsung atleast launches the next note 10.1 as this one will go obsolete soon even though it has a octacore processor.
Do not buy this device if you want access to systems that are beyond 4.4.2.
Samsung did not upgrade this device except for once in its 2-year lifetime. It's a decent tablet otherwise, but if you want to be supported by your manufacturer long after you purchase a device, do NOT look to Samsung. Buy a Google Nexus device. That's probably the type of my next purchase.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2015Why haven't I received an update to kit kat? It will probably never never receive any software whatsoever. I own one since September 2014, and Samsung doesn't look like it will support any device other their current flagship models. My brother's Tab S is also stuck with KitKat, and has no Lollipop upgrade on the way.
my Note 10.1 2014 edition just could not come on after I had put off 2hrs later having used it for presentation. could some help me understand what could be the issue? I keep pressing the power on button but its refused to come on.
My action memo is not working since long time I am not sure if it stopped working after kit kat upgrade or some other reason. If anyone has faced this issue and got resolution please help.
oes anybody know if the Samsung Note 10.1, LTE has phone capabilitys with the sim card?
Does any one know if there is a replacement to the 10.1 note 2014 Coming this year?
Quite a few have reported this issue. Iam using a P600 for almost 2 years now and I haven't experienced any battery issues so far. Assuming nothing is wrong with the tablet, my guess would be irregular charging. batteries in general (including Lithium Ion) have a charge/discharge cycle which when broken too many times can cause inconsistency in the device's measurement of the battery capacity and % charge left.
Try the following to confirm this,
1. Use a heavy app like a game or something. If you notice the power percentage drop drastically, like 10% to 20% or more in an instant, then that pretty much means what i just said.
2. If you do detect a drastic drop in the battery %, note down the battery % then turn off your device, wait few seconds and then switch it back on. If you see a different battery % (higher most of the case), then that confirms what i just said.
The fix would be battery calibration and a device hard/soft reset, which is simple to do (google it).
Now, if this is not the case, then i'd recommend you get it checked and ignore the whole thing above :).
my note is working nicely without any lacs
but the only issue is its battery
it only last for 15 h wether i use it or not
i have hibirinate all the apps and never use internet
it drain even i put it in to off
what to do
this is still samsungs most powerful tablet, p605, never overheats during so much download, it takes anything you throw at it in a heartbeat..samsung still needs to optimize the touchwiz as sometimes the software can start fluctuating after days/weeks of never shutting down, which forces me to restart by holding the power button. dont have this problem on my g4
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2014no its battery is very good i'm from egypt and i have the SM-P601 3G . i had it from 3 weeks... moreIf im only watching videos or movies and internet the battery in mine lasts about 4 days which is good.
Mahesh123, 08 Aug 2015I think mr kartiksen you are too much "obsessed" with dumb gadget, and most of the t... moreMahesh, why are you replying to this post of mine when the previous one is addressed to you? lol.... Anyways, i was merely pointing out the differences that i know of, between 2 samsung devices that kamalcharza was interested in. i dont see what obsession has to do with it. If you're trying mock me, kindly do it right :).
Oh and one more thing, you mentioned about your loyalty shifting everyday to every month or year. Only fanboys show loyalty towards a brand and irrelevant of the brand itself, a fanboy is a fanboy and you my friend is one. I truly doubt you'll be able to appreciate technology for what it truly is and not what its hyped up to be... Good day to you too!
