If you buy Samsung, you already know you root it and install a decent ROM, or a highly optimised stock ROM that gets rid of the crapware and bloatware and makes TW run infinitely better. Most Samsung's have lag issues, but not on custom ROMs.
Im taking mine back today. The plastic silver part around the screen is not glued properly so you can actually move it(I think for almost 500$ after tax this shouldnt be an issue anybody should deal with). Also if youre in the dark you can actually see the light from the screen on the back of the tablet..I just really dont understand why Samsung cant use better materials. They definitely have the money to do so. If you want to charge a premium use some better materials. Kinda disappointed that I have to take it back but I cant even justify replacing it.
That's pretty bad QC from Samsung and makes a mockery of their premium pricing.
128GB sim is great for data but is 16GB enough for APPS?
The heat on the left side isn't just in intensive apps. After a couple of hours of reading using "Cracked" or "Kindle", it does get quite noticeable. If you like reading around 4 hours per use session, you'll want a decent case to make up for that.
