Thinking about buying this one but there are too many negative reviews especially with respect to lag. May go for the one plus one instead. I hear the thing rocks.
florence, 08 Dec 2014The battery life is really hopeless. It drops from 100 % to 15% in less than 20 minutes usage... moreHI
take it in for check up. same thing happened to me...they must reload all software. should sort the issue out. if not replace battery
For once pls be truthful,
1, battery: i have been using mine for about 7 months now and my battery still last up to 5 days on normal use and a day any half heavy use.
2, lagging: many applications are set to onto start and run on background without ur permission,
3, both the hardware and software are in great condition, the touch wiz ui is fast enough.
The 2014 tablet is on first class folks, i will advise you all that are against its performance to examine your tablets for junks, like unwanted apps, app cache,auto run apps background process and so on. As for me its far better than the new iPad air let alone older models coz i use both of them.
Under no circumstances is a device of
1.3ghz dual core
Better ot compare able to a device of
The difference is clear.
Pls folks a little bit of the truth will be fine.
The battery life is really hopeless. It drops from 100 % to 15% in less than 20 minutes usage. I cannot take note of a sermon of 30 minutes. Am very really frustrated as I have to put it on charge continuously while in use. I use Samsung phones for years. This is so disappointing. Any advice? I now have to go back to my I pad that I hate cause of its stingy nature with its apps. Help out please.

Note:I bought my sm-p601 brand new November 2013,BT Samsung has refused to seed updates to me to d best of their knwoledge.
Am done with Samsung for life,immediately I receive my shipments.
Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G with kitkat and lollipop soon or Samsung Galaxy note 2014 3G with jellybean ? :-\
I've had the device for almost a year, and I've had very few issues with it. I'm an engineering student and use the device as a textbook, notebook and circuit simulator and the occasional game or two. I've had no I game lag and very few os stutters . overall the device is amazing for multitasking copying your friends notes and notes of the bored camera style but don't be looking to take all inspiring images with device. It's Almost a laptop replacement for a student.
i had this for a month. brand new. already been in 3 times.
SAMSUNG ROODEPOORT is disgusting. they keep returning my device with unresolved issues.
the battery goes to 30% and dies...sent it in 3 times nothing changed
they refuse to change the battery... they don't even test the battery... they just let it drain and claim its tested
so i am on the verge of moving to apple now.

Ive had this device since it laun... moreYou didnt talk in terms of what your good means. being an engineer I dont get the terms good, large, huge, excellent. etc I would rather like to define. I explained the problems. the placement of buttons the un-resizable note scratch pad, battery charging these are real issues. I am not sure what made a super difference with all the features by introducing kit kat. I am neither iPad fan nor an android follower I am just telling what I felt is better than other. Note may be very powerful but User interface is a crap and samsung really didnt ustlize the capabilities to fullest potential.
xpert, 13 Nov 2014Why does asphalt 8 lags on medium/high settings on my sm-p601 (4.3 jb) Plz help guys.thanksTry disabling Power Savor and if it still lags that means CPU has problem.
Egghead, 23 Nov 2014Either you're lying, never used Android before, or simply stupid. I own both an ipad and gala... moreYes I never used android before, Galaxy note was my first android device and I was very disappointed in further using android. But I felt using iPad was much more convinient than using Galaxy note. I am not sure if my tablet is fake since I was able to register it in Samsung website and also have an invoice with serial number. I dont want argue with anybody or use foul language. What I meants was if I compare the user intutive behaviour in both the tablets iPad seems to be much more easy to use. I do agree that as per specification Samsung has more powerful hardware, but that doesnt give any convinience to me. I think we should rather discuss technical points than abusive and insulting language. Samsung nor Apple is my home business they sell gadgets which will always get superseeded by the new ones in market.

I own both an ipad and galaxy note tablet, and i've found the galaxy note tablet far more useful than my ipad for work purposes.
Does anybody have used OTG of the tablet. I tried using two otg readers to read my SDCARD but both of them never worked. the specification says it has host usb feature, I am not sure it never detectes any usb device plugged in. I checked all the options in setting but never found a mention of OTG or USB host. If anyone has experience please share.

The tab is average. I think those you have never used iPad will probably like it. I brought this tablet to replace my iPad and use it for some productive application. But I am little dissappinted.
Samsung has packed a very powerful hardware with a week and un-intuitive software. I think I should rather blame Android than Samsung. This tab comes with all the nonsense android junk which you dont want, Virus, unwanted installations, Sluggishness, unmanaged RAM in the background etc.
-One of the biggest disaapointment is when using the pen, although the sensitivity of the pen is very good so is the writing experience but, the 2 touch buttons placed near home are annoying. The moment you touch these buttons whatever you have written is either gone or you have to strugle to navigate and get it back. One way is to rotate the tab and use it upside down , but I didnt like rotating the tab idea.
The sketch pad is a crap. I think they never experimened with what would be the real need. The paper size selectable in the sketch pad is abnormal and i didnt find any customisation for the same. I couldnt use the sketch pad or note pad watever you call for my needs and for whatever reason I brought this device for.
The sticky note is good but I was not able to write something and copy paste from there as text. Very small things Samsung missed.
I am not sure if this is a problem with android, but the photos and pictures organisation is too confusing. It is impossible for me to navigate the picture I have stored. I have to strugle to find the place my pic is stored which was too easy in my iPad. thats the reason I said samsung didnt work on user intuitive behaviour they just put an powerful hardware and left it to customer.
battery charging will take an year if you dont use standard supplied charger. Battery drains within short usage or no usage. For this reason I stopped using this device unless I badly need to do something writing on the screen.
I am not sure why many of the apps run in only one orientation of the screen. some run only in potrait, which is annoying but may not be in control of samsung.
Overall its very dissappointing gadget. If You are Samsung and android fan this may be for you. But for me Samsung had to work on battery and application and I will call it a very primitive device.
