    If you are not one..... you need look no further or post comments in this thread........


    OK.... the question............

    I've noticed that every now and then, mine seems to lock up and eventually it snaps out of it, but my "home" button no longer works. Meaning that if Ive got an app open, or browsing, the only way to get to the home screen is using the back button or switching off.

    Similarly, on the home tool bar, Ive swapped over the email app to the gmail app. That seems to get reset too when this happens.

    I thought maybe I got a faulty device as it did this a couple of times and the only solution I found was to factory reset. Clearly not good if youve installed loads of stuff.

    Anyway..... I got a replacement...... and this one has just done exactly the same thing!

    I'm sure I did see a solution online that resolves this without a factory reset, but cant find it now.

    However, am I just unlucky or are others/ everyone getting this problem too?

    PS my device is the wifi only P1010

    I have a 64GB iPad too and can safely say (this annoying bug aside) the Tab is a better device.

    Addjon do you think the jini's have got to them? I got the first one 4 weeks ago and the replacement 1 week ago.

    Doubt it... the tab is in no way a better device as all sane people know. I'm lol'ing lots at your last post.

    True. You've still ignored the first comment in the OP. . . . And tagged too.

    PS I was using the iPad until this post and had to switch to the superior tab as the text doesn't scroll within the text box provided and couldn't have included all quotes.

    I'm pretty sure guv just trolls these days. No one could be that cabbaged. It's all well and good not liking something, or saying the product you bought it better than something else even if you don't believe it yourself. But now he just seems so overly backwards its gotta be a joke.

    PS: I get tagged in loads of threads brah, thats what happens when you're extremely popular.

    PPS: The text does scroll within the text box provided. I have been doing so for approximately 1 year since my iPad showed up Fail guv. hashtag #guvguvfail .k cheers.

    Apparently it's a problem that Samsung acknowledged recently. I've linked to the fix.

    Are you suggesting I'm lying re the text box? I'm merely stating 100% as I found it. Maybe its a bug? But dont answer as this thread is specifically aimed at Tab users not for trolling.

    And nope, I'll not be claiming Samsung make the best cameras but I expect you will be making some wild claims of your own . . . Oh wait!

    WTF has a desire got to do with it? And if your pages were rendering slowly, clearly it was faulty. (Even though I do think I recall you dissing the tab when it was released, so I'll take the owning bit with a pinch of salt.)

    I'd expect a tablet device to perform better with web pages than a mobile phone. That's why I mentioned it. It's not down to a faulty unit - it's a well-known aspect of the tablet.

    As a first attempt at a tablet it was okay, but nowhere near as polished as the iPad. They seemed to have learnt their mistakes and produced an infinitely better product by the looks of it.

    I may have added one but you won't guess which one.

    How can anyone be a fanboy if they own multiple devices from competing manufacturers.

    Samsung don't make the best in class of any of their product range so no reason to ever go there.

    Theres no bug, just daft people. Hold finger somewhere in text box, drag finger to top or bottom edge of textbox. Textbox scrolls. No bug, no problem.

    PS: Troll :P

    Even samsung don't think the tab is as good as an iPhone, hence the gerald ratner moment.

    Ooh. That worked! Lol I thought it would just scroll at speed like it does in the tab. Very slow I have to say.

    What Ratners moment are you referring? Bringing out a newer upgraded version and in different sizes?

    For a start I meant iPad not iPhone in my last comment. Easy mistake to make, since they are both market leading superb products :P

    Ratner moment when samsung boss 1) admitted the iPad was better and 2) that the iPad 2 had sent them back to the drawing board again and also 3) where he had to climb down and back his own product after an outcry.

    As for complaint that the scrolling is 'very slow' - oh dear guv... you really are scraping the barrel now.

    Cool. Well at least we've got that clarified! X)

    PS to the tagger - owning lots of mobile wifi devices, it makes sense to buy and use a MiFi. True, I could have tethered my phone, but that means my phone has to travel with the device too. It has nothing to do with not being able to afford anything - and I don't live in a council house. (it might be true that I kiss in trees though!

    Ok..... So I must come to the conclusion no one else has any problems with the superior Galaxy Tab other than willy envy.
