I really like this product.

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet - Brown/Black:
It has many nice features, including the stylus, and many apps support stylus-based entry. It's a good size for reading. I particularly like the Calendar app (better than the default Google app). The "Awesome Note" app is also very nice and "Story Album" is fun if you're at all into photography. Some of the other apps that came built in I haven't really figured out how to use though. My only complaints are it's too slick with the smooth hard plastic back and the camera sticks out, which exposes it to possible scratching. That and of course, it comes with restricted function recovery (like everything Samsung) that doesn't support backup and restore. Looking forward to (hopefully soon) a supported upgrade to Kitkat. Currently it's at 4.2.2.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK
from Simpsonville, SC, USA
I am a tech support agent and this is a great little tablet for the money. If you dont want bulk, but are looking for speed and reliability, then this is for you!! I know it's for me.... now all I need is Kitkat OS and this Note will be perfect. Comes highly recommended from a technology geek.

This tablet is far better than the IPad. I love the double screen The apps that are given for free are amazing The stylus is unlike anything out there.This tablet makes my life easier It's very capable of playing media, reading ebooks, or browsing the internet, but where it really shines is indeed with the S-pen functionality. , this tablet does everything I wanted it to perfectly

fun, exciting and entertaining
from las vegas
I find it great, I'm still learning about the tablet,. Im looking forward to getting the kit cat up date on this tablet 8 and on my galaxy s 3.I can't find s beam on tablet and synchronizing the tablet to the galaxy 3 seems difficult and tango won't work on the tablet, though this is tango that expects a second phone number, this is a WiFi tablet. Please Samsung have all your products comparableo so we can sync Samsung products easily
Very Functional, Everyday Tablet
I purchased this tablet about 6 months ago after extensive tablet research. I take a lot of notes in my courses at college and desired a condensed solution to the copious amount of notebooks I've filled on various subjects, so a tablet with a stylus that allowed for hand-written notes was a must. At the time of my purchase, the Note 8.0 had received rave reviews regarding the S-pen specifically. In the end my decision came down to two choices: the Note 8.0 or the Note 10.1. As I stood undecided in the store, a friend asked "which one are you most likely to 'grab and go' whenever you need to take your tablet somewhere?" It was this advice that led my to the Note 8.0, and I don't regret it. It goes almost everywhere with me. It's very capable of playing media, reading ebooks, or browsing the internet, but where it really shines is indeed with the S-pen functionality. Within seconds of needing to jot something down, I've got the pen in hand and can get to taking notes. The only hangup I've encountered with the design is the location of the 'menu/home/back' button panel. As the screen real estate is small in comparison with a standard sized sheet of paper (or the Note 10.1), I find myself accidentally pressing these buttons if I'm writing with the tablet in a vertical position with the buttons on the bottom or a horizontal position with the buttons on the same side as my writing hand. This is easily remedied by orienting the tablet "upside down" (so the buttons are at the top and the Samsung logo is on the bottom) or horizontally with the buttons on the opposite side, but sometimes I'm in a hurry and forget to orient the tablet to prevent this. That will come down to habit, I suppose. Other than my personal trouble with accidental button pushing, this tablet does everything I wanted it to perfectly, and even things I hadn't thought I'd want it to do on top of that! Well worth purchasing if you feel you'll need the S-pen as much as I do and if you'd like a tablet you'll actually carry with you without feeling like you need a separate bag for it.

GREAT TABLET WITH TONS OF FEATURES
from NEW YORK
ONE OF THE BEST TABLETS I HAVE EVER USED. NICE FEATURES AND APPS. EXCELLENT WITH SAMSUNG TVS AND OTHER PRODUCTS
The best Tablet Ever!!!
This tablet is far better than the IPad. I've been searching for a tablet that could take great pictures and videos, great HD quality screen, ease of use, productivity to handle your workload of projects with office applications and the ability to expand your memory. This tablet is the one. I've had this tablet for about 2 1/2 months now, and I don't leave home without it.
from charlotte nc
the system is fast and it is good for gaming and its very lightweight
Galaxy Note 8.0 the best!
I always wanted a tablet and know it was going to be a Samsung tablet. On Black Friday, I began my search for the best deals on Samsung tablets. Saw that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was going for a great deal and decided to purchase it. I did not do much research into this product and was disappointed that the features I wanted was not compatible on this device. I then trade it in for the Galaxy Note 8.0 and i must say, I LOVE IT. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is the ideal tablet for me. It does everything I wanted in a tablet. It is a very neat device with a lot of power in it. Thumbs up to the guys (Charles and Jay) at the Union Square best buy who showed me the pros and cons in both devices and lead me into the purchase of this product. They are awesome.

No flash drive
Overall I love my Samsung tablet, but I would have been better off with a Microsoft tablet. I'm just annoyed with the functionality of the note. However, with introduction of the S4 mini these items could work cohesively to hit the mark.
