​Care to elaborate?, the reception and data speeds in my area are excellent, perfect for a tablet data service!

​I have been with iD for over a year and before with 3. Signal great and speed by my work up to 80-90 Mbps what else can u want. Now Vodafone and only 3G poor but only for a year

I think currys are the useless ones lol

This looks like a good deal - I currently have a 3G Galaxy Note 8.0 that I just use for surfing but it is falling apart, this might be a good stopgap. Heat, thanks.

Great deal with the data included. I use EE for my main phone and their 4gee double speed is super fast but expensive for the amount I get. When the contract is up I'm moving it to iD which I use for this spare phone. I can upload at 100Mb/s. Through the WiFi router (EE) I max out at 100kb/s upload speed. It all depends where you live which provider is best for you. I can't get any signal at all on O2, and Vodafone barely registers too. No cable in the area so no superspeed broadband from any company. That leaves 4g my only option for a decent experience online and so far EE & iD have been the best I've tried. In other regions of the UK that might be different. Saying [insert mobile provider] are garbage, don't go near them is poor advice if you're basing that solely on the weak/non-existent signal you received from them.

Is this unlocked? It's not in the 'unlocked tablets' section of ebay, and I don't see unlocked mentioned in the details, but I do see unlock codes advertised online for this tablet.

Could the data sim be used be used in another device? (such as a mifi)

And (sorry about all these questions, but trying really hard to justify buying this to OH) can this tablet with the ID sim be used for tethering?

I know I'm showing my ignorance here but.. this is a tablet you can make calls on, right? Or, can you? I'm looking for something to replace my phone / replacement phone. I had a Samsung S4 but that broke - then I bought a Moto G4 off Amazon which was faulty and the "replacement" was stolen by one of their OWN logistics couriers... (NEVER again...!).

Now I'm broke and stumped. I basically need something that'll be okay for GPS and good battery / not fragile - I'm careful but a total idiot and accident prone. Any suggestions for phones / (or tablets that'll accept my sim card and allow me to make calls) would be greatly appreciated merry christmas all and happy new year.

At John Lewes for £94.99 ( with 2 years warranty) , without data ! Is this the latest model with curved edge ??

Does this have a stylus?

cold, its a samsung. Only Android devices to have are nexus / pixel

this is the one with 4g does the john lewis one have 4g

Hmm, I've voted hot based on the fact that it's a 4G tablet with a SIM slot, and that it comes with 12GB of data to be used over six months,

BUT - if you don't care about having a SIM slot, you can get the higher specced Lenovo Tab 3 8" tablet from Argos with more RAM, double the internal storage and a slightly faster processor for £30 less.

Completely disagree. The Pixel, albeit a good phone, is massively overpriced.
Huawei are making some excellent handsets these days and they sport some very useful features not found in stock/vanilla Android devices.

Take camera apps for example. The default camera app on a Nexus or Pixel is so basic you can hardly do anything with your photos. Huawei and Samsung's camera interfaces allow you to do so much more and fiddle around with loads of different options. My Honor 8 (and other devices) even allow you to keep the shutter open, so you can create some very nice looking light trails etc.

I've had near-stock Android phones such as the Moto G and Smart Ultra 6, and after owning a Huawei phone I'm amazed at how feature rich it is in comparison to a stock Android experience

Any input on how this tablet compares to the Amazon Fire 7? Or even the Fire 8 HD (besides the screen size difference).

Cold I have the wifi one and quickly bought a Huawei M2 8.0 16GB, dont get me wrong the sammy is a lovely device for that price however the 8GB is almost entirely eaten up by their bloatware.

What's the difference between disagreeing and completely disagreeing.

I got all excited but then saw it's the 7" model
If it was the 10" incher i would have been in there..

The spec of this pad looks different to the one on the JLewis site. Even allowing for the wifi/4G difference.

7" is to small in imo....had loads of tablets and settled on a 8" but am tempted as it was looking at the larger 10.1

Price is same on Currys eBay and Currys website but website seems to offer 2 year warranty whereas eBay only mentions 12 months warranty

Nice quality tablet. Stuck a 3 SIM in mine and it works fine for calls too. Thanks.

Never had a problem with ID although their customer service could be better but their network is solid.

​Try to go abroad, no roaming. No network at all, not even if you want to pay it. Customer service is just useless. I went to the US with 3 and saved almost 5k in a bill thanks to Feel at home. I had Internet and with id my partner couldn't connect with home unless WiFi. To me ID could go bankrupt for the experience we had.

Cold. Samsung and 8gb, £120 for a brick.

Great value for this one, I pay attention to it for a long time, thanks.

8GB will be an exercise in frustration for normal users.

I've got an LG K8 phone with the useless 8GB storage and its f#$%ing always running out of space.

....Nice of LG to disable the option of using adoptable storage as well and hardly any apps have the option of being moved to Ext SD.

I agree. Huawei's take on Android is pretty special. They've given a lot of thought into exactly what needs improving, and what doesn't, in stock Android, say compared to some of the older versions of Samsung's TouchWiz and the godawful LG overlay.

for me I wouldn't pay £30 for a tablet with 8GB on board storage... after formatting and Android OS/Samsung bloatware enjoy the 1GB you're left with for everything else.

I don't know why, but every time I read "Samsung Galaxy Tab A" my inside voice puts a comma before the "A" and raises pitch at the end, so it sounds like a Canadian saying it.

Why would it being Samsung make it cold? Samsung are easily the best Android manufacturers, and were it not for the Note 7 debacle they were wiping the floor with Apple with superior products.

Hold on a sec, because you could say that a number of android OEMs are destroying apple right now.

In terms of actual profit etc though, none of them come close to apple. So wiping the floor isnt really apt in the broad sense.

Samsung have improved a lot, and with the nougat update for s7, I beleive they have the best of both worlds in the android space.

Pixel is way too expensive and lacks a lot of features at that price. Where as you can get a new s7 edge for around £400 these days. You're essentially paying high Google tax for a faster OS. The screen isn't the greatest on the pixel either. I actually preferred the accuracy of the oneplus 3 screen with srgb vs the pixel. Samsung's basic mode is just epic.
