Coming December will mark 3 years, I have been using this tablet . If only all the phone could be like this one... it has never visited a repair shop. No heating up ,no battery drainage. This only problem is there is no other update after 4.4 .
I got this as a "free" (with paid service) and I'm glad I did. Nice size tablet for carrying around and writing notes. Used it for work. Really sorry they didn't follow up with a newer version with more RAM.
How about high spec game like "Injustice" or "Asphalt". Is it running well on galaxy note 8.0? 'Coz i had an "injustice" game on my ipad mini for at least 2 years, but don't know why from the last sunday the game stop working / force closed. And now i'm considering to buy a tablet with affordable price. Huhh.
I have mine for about 3 years now, and I have never had any trouble using it...
Worse tablet ever. Sent it to the service center many times already and now it works like crap again. It does not turn on properly, it only shows samsung and heats up, tried waiting for it but nothing happened. I charged it yesterday till it went to 100%. Also tried hard reset or factory reset (whatever u call it.)

djamel melbous king, 16 Jun 2016I need a battery How can I buy them Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 N5100 im from algeriaDjamel, in my opinion, there is not much point in replacing the battery. Me and my brother both own the Galaxy note 8.0, and we also faced problems of the draining battery, so we replaced our batteries. However, the performance of the tablet remained roughly the same, and the power drains fast, as before. I believe this is usually what happens when a device gets too old, and can't keep up with the requirements of today's applications. My advice for you is to just buy a new tablet/phone. :) (as I am typing this right now my Galaxy Note 8.0 is still using up a large amount of power from the newly replaced battery)

I can't connect this device with Sony MDR-100ABN headphone. Is it related with bluetooth version? Even it can't recognize the device. I already scan for devices many times.
