A great tablet indeed. It's just sad that after 2 years Samsung decided not support this device for android upgrading. Looking forward, as new apps develop, fewer apps would this device be able to run. Very sad. This was an expensive device (got it for a good boxing day price). But really, Samsung should be responsible for the consumers who owns this device.
We have been given a broken screen Samsung T520 but it is locked with a passcode(pin) Can I reset this to factory settings and if so how? Can see the screen even though it is cracked.

The Samsung Tab Pro requires a 2.0 Amp/5.3 V charger head. It is *REALLY* important that it be the 2.0 Amp *AND* the 5.3 V. Samsung phones use a 5.0 V charger, and using one of the 5.0 V chargers will give you the red X over the battery icon, and will charge even more slowly than usual.
The Samsung Tab Pro has faulty charging ports which tend to wear out quickly (I mean, *REALLY* quickly. I had problems within a few months of purchasing mine), they take forever to charge, and the battery life is much lower than expected/advertised (as the last poster expresses.) I've had mine for only 2 years and am having to replace it due to charging issues.
My tab pro is 2 years old. It takes 16 hours to fly charge the battery and it drains in about 24 hours of intermittent use.

Love this tablet, hate Samsung's support, or lack thereof. No software updates? Really? I just rooted mine and installed Cyanogenmod 12. Runs better now than it did out of the box.
Great tab! However, it is sometimes sluggish on the pre-installed OS. Runs like a treat on CM.
It's absolutely ridiculous not to have an OS upgrade on this tablet. The hardware would support it, but Samsung is too cheap for it! I swear never to buy a bloody Samsung device ever again.
I have had this tablet for about a year and have had to factory reset it 3 times now as it would not recognize any Wi-Fi even though it was inches away. Very annoying. It would be working fine and then suddenly no recognition of wifi anywhere. I called Samsung support but they were not interested.
Samsung never again! To much money, no update for Android 5.0 or 6. For this money You can buy a iPad and be satisfied for many years!
Very happy with this tablet, I love samsung galaxy, my phone is a samsung galaxy note 2 and thats superb also, its the baby to my tablet, they like twins haha and both in white. Enjoy people its one of the best, well compared to what ive checked out prior to buying this, it is the best.
I bought mine a year ago. Very satisfied with it.
Although my have 3g/lte modem.
Joe, 18 Jun 2015Is there a user manual for this thing on line?Yes, in fact there are two different versions available on-line. One includes an index.
How to update the OS to Android 5 Lollipop? Is any advantage if I
update it? Will the Tab Pro 10.1 automaticely update (OTA) to Lollipoo?
