To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am a very experienced desktop user and decided one day to buy a Samsung TAB A at Costco. It came with a tiny start-up guide of about 5 sentences. So I downloaded the users manual for free from the Samsung web site and printed it out. Even with the manual's coverage, it was extremely difficult to learn how to navigate with taps and touches and in many cases the user's manual was just plain wrong as applied to updated software. I was just about to return the Tablet to Costco when I discovered Eric Butow's book and purchased it on my Kindle. This book is very useful, and unlike the user's guide, very specific in what steps to take to access the many features on the TAB A. Many of the features and apps I never would have discovered by just using Samsung's guide and website support. Samsung should be paying Eric the big bucks just for publishing this. This book saved me from returning the tablet to the retailer. Do not buy a Samsung Tab A unless you buy this book.
Nice tablet that I bought for my wife. However others got the benefit of it since it was stolen. It was lighter than I expected, but it was the right size that my wife wanted since it was a surprise gift ... not too big...not too small. I bought a case for it and so it made the tablet feel a little heavier and not like something that would glide out of your hands. The performance of the tablet was excellent given what my wife used it for. I recommend it for purchase. I will replace the stolen tablet shortly.
