I recall Samsung offers 2 years, yes, so you're correct.

Having a look on John Lewis website, they offer free delivery for orders over £50, so it works out 99p cheaper than Amazon, PC World/Currys etc.

Not a very good tablet it but £99 so has 2 be hot

Not a very good tablet it but £99 so has 2 be hot



Pardon?

One more thing, if you take your samsung device to any carphone warehouse store, they will repair it for free provided its within warranty period. Just had my note 2 got replaced.

I get one yesterday from Currys (£99.99, so 99p more expensive). Reserved online, collect in store - 3% quidco, which is tracked already (£2.50). It's a little more off but a deal is a deal. This is still hot though as it's the cheapest if you are not into quidco etc.

How is this in power compared the a Galaxy S3?
Will it get any further updates?

This or the advent vega for £89 from currys. Anyone ?

Not great. Hudl is far better, even if you dont double up on tesco points. Nexus is the best 7inch tab, but thats 2X the price of the Samsung.
Edited by: "omisnad" 18th Dec 2013

I went into John Lewis yesterday to buy this (£119 yesterday instore) but the salesman talked me out of it. He told me for the lower price tablet to go for the Nexus or Hudl. After doing some more research last night, I've decided to spend the extra and get the Nexus.

I had returned the Samsung Tab 2 yesterday as I had got it for my sons Chritsmas present but found the screen not very responsive to touch when I was trying to set it up and it was frustrating me let alone a child. I tried the 3 instore and found it the same. The Nexus however was like an iPad, you touch the screen and it instantly does what you want it to.

Further to this, try the Asus memopad, they make the Nexus but the memopad has 5mp camera too.

Is the Nexus better than the iPad Mini, assuming 7.9" is a 7" tab?

I got my tablet with the recent orange phone deal from carphone warehouse online. If a fault develops, is it ok to take into the stores?
Also reading the small print, the hobbit size warranty card has to be stamped/dated by the retailer in order for the warranty to be valid! But I doubt its actually true.
Also cannot recommend, very average and really poor on forums such as here when trying to reply, using a laptop instead.

Yeah was swaying towards that. Thanks...

If you're going to spend that money then take a look at the Galaxy Tab 3 8 inch as well. The extra screen size and real buttons make it so much better and I really like the Samsung droid overlay - much more user friendly. Galaxy usually comes with an extra 16Gb for £179 all in too. Got quickly fed up with the Nexus screen size and when I had a go of my mates Galaxy I ordered that and sent the Nexus back. In fairness the Nex has a quad core CPU and 0.5Gb more RAM but I haven't noticed any difference in speed

good warrenty with john lewis

question....
it has 8GB memory, you can install other SD card yes?
im under the impression that you cannot install apps on the SD cards?
so your OS takes up half the 8GB memory
so this is pretty much browsing only?

As per my experience with CPW, you wont need stamped warranty card and since you have bought from CPW they will have all your details so just take it to any store and they will do the rest.

Is this basically just a big Galaxy s3? Same processor and stuff? I might get my mam one for a stocking filler, beats using her laptop for quick use

All Samsung products have 2 year warranty lol
Plus i would nt buy anything electrical from John lewis.

Why did you buy anything electrical? I believe there product s are good and they have a very goid customer services.

2 years warranty is standard customer right in EU. I know that most sellers got 1 year, but this is against law.

Just read review of tablets in What hi if sound and vision were they gave the memo pad 3 out of 5 and an Archos 2 out of 5 and commented hard to believe that one makes the Nexus and the other the Hudl?

Not tech savvy so need some help please. This or the tegra note 7?

Been waiting for JL to reduce the price of this tab for a while now... time to pop in and pay less with my staff discount.

bought.
on balance I think this is a good all round tablet that can handle the 3d games like real racing and subway surf. check out youtube vids.
2 year warranty is great.
99 is a great price.
the only gripe others will have is the screen which is 1200x600 but for a 7" screen it wont matter too much.

the tegra at pcworld is now back up in price to 129. the kobo arc seems decent and is 69 but very few available. the amazon kindle fire hd looks goood too but avoidded it to concentrate on conventional android os and google play apps. i realise thats contentious.

I purchased one of these last week, went straight back is horribly out dated now and frankly painful to look at (awful screen) and slow..low clock speed, old dual core, cheap chipset. Spend slightly more and have a far far better table experience. Also FYI these have faulty loose home buttons just like the note 3 issue. Mine was wobbling all over the place. forum.xda-developers.com/sho…367

CPW are now selling this for £79 and I have a £15 credit note. They have this tablet in stock at my local store so the effective cost for me would be £64 but even then some of the reviews make me think it's still not worth that and better off holding out for something else to price drop.

Appreciate any views from people who have bought one and used it.

For ref this will mostly be used by my 4 year old for learning (not sure on quality and range of free educational apps on android - I have an iPad)

It's a very good tablet for everyday use and in spite of what some say it's far better than the Memo Pad and Hudl certainly in terms of build quality and even slightly so in terms of performance.

Some people put this tablet down because of specs and benchmark scores but real world performance is a different matter all together and this tablet punches above it's weight where many better spec tablets on paper actually struggle.

back in stock at CPW

Got mine for £65 from CURRYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
