Unfortunately, when I ordered this tablet on Black Friday, Groupon was unable to fill the order. I'm still a bit sore about that, because it was a gift; after waiting weeks for it to arrive, I had to make a last-minute run to the local department store and buy a different tablet (Samsung Galaxy III) for a comparable price. We had nothing but trouble with the Galaxy tablet - it's barely functional, routinely crashes when running even simple applications - so when the Nexus appeared on Groupon again for the same price, I ordered it again. This time it was shipped promptly, and it's light-years better than the Galaxy tablet in every respect. In the end, a great deal.
I had charged it then the next morning could not get it to start up. Once, I got it to boot up, it held a charge for a couple hours and has taken 4 days to get to 5%. Waste of time and money. My son is disappointed!
The performance of seller was exceptional (as always - thank you Groupon) , but the Nexus performs well within the boundaries of its design. I did not realize, however that there is no front-facing camera and that performance of the rear-facing camera would be so poor (but as I discovered, still to spec - in other words, it was designed like this). So was this the best deal I've ever gotten - probably (actually definitely) not. Was it OK - yes it was OK and I'm still a Grouponer (although I may be a bit more careful to read everything I can before buying Groupon Goods, just to avoid any more surprises).
The tablet would never turn on. Asus recommended returning to vendor rather than trying to get it repaired. on-line reviews state this is a common problem. I should have done my research. thank you for returning my purchase price on this poor tablet. I bought a samsung. way happier.
This tablet performs all of the basic functions well, great screen clarity. It has a front facing camera only. Great for selfies, but not easy to keep yourself out of the picture when you want to. The camera app is also rather limited in picture adjustments. Lots of room for improvement in the camera.
The product was as described, I just lIke the samsung galaxy note 8 we bought much more. We are familiar with the samsung interface and while this is fairly simple it is different than what we are used to. Not a bad tablet for the $, but cheaper on e
Although it's WIFI only, which has it's limitations, I often use it in place of my laptop. Since it's a Samsung Galaxy, I'm very familiar with operating it since I have a Galaxy phone (which is a plus so that I don't have to learn a new operating system!). I love it!
Bought this for my 8 year old son this Christmas. We are both very happy with the tablet. It is fast, has plenty of storage, and works for all of his needs (Minecraft, games, Google Docs & Slideshow's).
Great gift at a great price! Fast shipping. Easy setup, lots of memory, great variety of apps. Vivid graphics and colors. Camera is for selfies only! We own 3 bc we like the product.
I bought two of these, one for each of my kids. I was used to my iPad and I thought the smaller screen would bother me, but I love the smaller screen. I feel like the accidental drops by the kids are less likely to damage it, plus it's just easier for smaller hands to manipulate it. The storage is incredible - my son had maxed out the storage on the iPad and has barely tapped into it on the Nexus tablet.
