Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device! It is great. Speakers, screen, interface are all amazing but gaming and camera are a little bit of a problem! Fast at browsing the web and speedy at launching apps apps. Overall, great device for the value!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does the job I bought it for 330 CAD on black friday and used it around 3 month. I bought this on black friday and used it for 3 month. I think this tablet is for people who wants a tablet for media consumption except gaming which I think, most people's purpose owning a tablet. Here are some pros and cons. Pros: - Quad speakers output loud enough and decent sounds. - Screen quality is great and bright even if it is not oled. - Good screen aspect ratio for videos. - headphone jack + expandable memory slot - USB-C with fast charging - relatively recent OS compared to other android tablets (android 8.1) - Long battery life (for my case, 9-10h screen on time) Cons: - Controversial processor (snapdragon 450, performance somewhere between S5 and S6) - Poor performance when gaming. (Nearly impossible to run high-spec games, and some games run in low resolution. You can only change this by manually installing Samsung game tuner .apk) - Only up to 540p on Netflix (Even it has DRM L1 Widevine certificate) It is a decent device for people who are looking for video/text&pdf/pics machine. For me, processor is fine. Of course it is not as snappy as recent flagships but I think it still does the job for media consumption. I have not experienced any major bugs/lag yet. Lastly, I hope Samsung gives this device an update so it can stream HD netflix contents. I think that is the only downside as a media consumption device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great feature for the money almost all as the expe Got it a week ago haven't played with it a lot but so far it's pretty good the only negative is the screen display could be better .besides that it's just as good as the other tablets that are way more money. Like the s3 , s4 .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tablet but could be better Bought it mainly to watch netflix and stream video online and browsing web sites and such. And to replace my SG S2 8.0 tab. That it did well as the screen was very nice speakers were awesome as well as battery life. But that's about it. I tried some gaming (Arena of Valor and PUBG) my old S2 8.0 tab held up better to my surprise considering its 3 years old. Even my wife's 3 year old Ipad mini 4 can hold out about the same. At that price point I'd expect a little more performance wise. I returned it and will wait for a better price drop. Verdict: for multimedia and browsing needs this is perfect. But for gaming and performance it's only mediocre.
