Android 4.4 KitKat, old now Androidno thanks


Doesnt it get updated to the latest version?
I have the tab 2 a10-70f and it only has 5.0.1
I bought it at £109 and I am really happy with it. I think it's actually worth the £149, and if I needed a tablet I would go for it.

Just a word of caution:
Argos only gives you 1 year warranty.
John Lewis gives you 2 years.
got this from JL myself at this price....subsequently refunded £40 as the price went down to £109 within the 28 days (thanks to my little hkud friend)...mine came with 5.0.1 and has been brilliant...well worth this price.
Yeah only old stock came with KitKat, had mine for nearly 4 months now and they just pushed a new update for Lollipop a few days ago.

Good point but you do in fact get 2 years warranty on electrical items under EU law. Even if we come out of the EU the law will still apply from date of purchase. If we had people in power who actually had some brains our government would have made the retailers tell you this. JL are only stating your statutory rights under EU law. If you had a problem with the item after 12 months you tell argos or whoever you wish to make a claim for repair under EU law. You could also exercise your rights under UK Consumer law which gives you protection up to 6 years. They cannot turn around and say your product is only guaranteed for 12 months after you state you wish to make a warranty claim but they will try it on if you don't stand up for your rights. You need to quote the right wording but it's easily found using Google. But it is easier just to buy from JL and if Argos, Tesco and Curry's only had some brains also, they might notice just how many sales they miss out on when compared to JL.

I haven't updated yet either, as its already running fine on 5.0.1, plus its best to reset after so that means installing apps again and I can't be bothered at the moment.

FYI if you have lots of apps and want to reset then "Helium" is great for backing up your apps to pc (root isn't required), works best for me just backing up app data instead of app with data.

Its an EU directive (1999/44/EC), which means EU country's create their own laws that conform to those directives, in the UK that's the Consumer Rights Act 2015, and the consumer rights act states if you return goods that are faulty six months after the purchase date then it's up to you to prove they were faulty when you bought them.

Yes it is, but you can still claim your rights under European law which do apply in this country however our own Consumer Act supersedes that anyway. My son actually used our own UK acts to get Currys to repair a faulty tv after 2 years 6 months. It was not subject to an extended warranty. As it was a Samsung it was easy to access the service menu and establish total usage, approximately 2500 hours, well below the expected life expectancy. Searching on the forums it would appear that failure of the panel was quite common. 2500 hours would be less than a years use for me so also quite easy to state fault was a manufacturing defect and not fair wear and tear.

Sale of goods act would apply to all goods purchased before October 2015. It has now been replaced with the Consumer Rights Act. Don't expect to call in on your rights if your electronics have got wet or have signs of being dropped.

This is exactly what I was saying, our Consumer Rights Act is our law based on that directive, once that was created it trumps any EU directive.

Your son did exactly what I said using the Consumer Rights Act, the fact that it was a common problem with that panel proved it was a fault that existed at the time of purchase. Without proving that they would have been perfectly within their rights to refuse to do anything because it falls outside the six month period.
