i bought this tablet couple of days ago.
powerful tablet good enough to replace my PC for most of the things i do.
back is heating up quickly when playing games.
battery backup is bad.can't last a full day if you are a moderate to heavy user.
not so comfortable to hold in one hand for longer time,nexus 7 is better in this regard.atleast samsung should have tried to reduce the width with thinner bezel like ipad mini.and the tablet's plastic body is super smooth to hold.samsung could have tried something like nexus 7 for a better grip.
i will update you guys after using it for couple of weeks.
Does Mocha VNC works in Samsung Note 8? It works in Samsung Note 2. THanks.
Mamun, 25 May 2013very poor ppi pixel. should be increased like S4Wake up your idea.
pls anyone do suggest me is samsung galaxy note 8.0 N5100 is a all purpose device. actually i need something with bigger screen, calling facility and gprs. With better display.
Mamun, 25 May 2013very poor ppi pixel. should be increased like S4First learn what you are commenting about. "very poor ppi pixel. should be increased like S4"? PPI is pixel per inch. So, when you say, "ppi pixel", you are saying "pixel per inch pixel".
PPI pertains to the number of pixel count at per 25.4mm or per inch linear measurement. So, when you say the Note 8's PPI "should be increased like the S4", you are asking the same 441ppi of the S4, therefore asking a 1728 by a 3072 pixel screen on the Note 8. You are asking for a 1728p screen.
This would add more task for the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) needing more power from the battery. It's impractical with today's battery technology and therefore an increased battery volume is needed that increases the net weight of the device.
You don't know what you're talking about and you just seem to try impressing people on screen density. Know what you're asking for properly.
I just bought thi beautiful device last week... people say here the dvice has poor battery, well thats not true.. it can take up to 1.5 days when using continuous wifi. The s-pen is very useful.... i like it movie player which id HD, i think its better to wat h movies here than un note 2. I sold my ipad because i get bored very easily. It doesnt have bluetooth, no sd card, memory cary(very limited)... i just missed the camera quality of my ipad and its beautiful appearance....... people say its awkward to use this note 8 as a phone but for me, it works so fine and i just want a all-in-1 gadget.. an HD movie player with larger screen, a notebook, sketchbook, something that u can do phonecalls and sms, fast net browser... i love my note 8 a lot.

I tested a video for a 5 minute run without loss of power. I'm pretty much happy that it works.
TheNeighbor, 23 May 2013Haha, I've only transferred files from a hard disk twice so far.

Anonymous, 23 May 2013To TheNeighbor... Where did you buy your 64 Gb mem card? Is it Class10 write/read speed? And... moreIf you are in Manila, I got it from a kiosk outlet on the 3rd level of the University Mall (next to De La Salle University) in Taft Avenue, for only ₱2400 ($59). It's a legit Sandisk "Ultra" microSDXC I Card with warranty.
Dhong.., 23 May 2013Its supported up to 64gb storage only,, just provide usb adapter..How to solved this ?
both my galaxy tablets not supporting micro SD card.
It recognize it as USB drive memory, unable video /games data transferring into it from phone memory.
This device isn't the greatest with games. I think the best feature is the stylus and hand-writing software. The mid-size is also ideal for reading on public transit during those long commutes.
