Laugh how much do y'all love your N10????

This thing is so awesome! The stock keyboard even understood "y'all" AND put the apostrophe in the right spot!

The more I use this keyboard the more amazed I am.

After using this tablet all weekend I would give it 9/10. Half point for light bleed and half for battery. Although pushing this many pixels I guess battery drain is to be expected.

Over the weekend I got to play around with the one I bought for my Mom. I must say I was thoroughly impressed with it. I'm seriously tempted to get me one now.

On a totally different note (and sorry for asking such a dumbass question).
I've noticed that the sound only comes from the top of the 2 speakers, is that normal? I was kinda hoping for the whole of the speakers on the side to be used, that would have been awesome.

It does kind of sound like that. I wonder why they ran the grill the whole way down the sides and did not make them shorter like the Tab 2 & Note 10.1 (other than it looks much more bad@$$).

I can't tell for sure, but if you look at the teardown it looks like the speakers are at the top on each side.

Did not even think to look at the tear down (to early in the morning). Yep, looks like the speakers are only up on the top. Guess the full grill is for looks only, not functionality.

Try a factory reset and see if that fixes it.

Unfortunately, after a system update (like the one to add all of the 4.2 goodies in) there are bugs after. And a factory reset will clear them up most of the time.

It never hurts, that os the standard fix if you contact tech support. I would say that it works about 75% of the time. And if you are rooted you can back everything up and restore it easily.

Tried this a couple of days and it was working fine! Until today when it crashed twice! So Google are sending out a replacement :-) hope the other one doesn't have the same problems

I hope that the issues are fixed with the replacement. I have had zero problems so far. Fingers crossed for you!

I love it!!!! It's a beast of a Tablet, I am enjoying every minute of it. I just hope developers can catch up to Android 4.2 since I have a few games that are not compatible with the tab or just won't launch. Other then that, the speakers are awesome, playing music and movies I actually have to turn the volume down.....and no distortion. Again.....I love it!!!! No regrets at all!!!

How does one go about charging it for the first time? On this one I just turned it on and it was charged at ~80-90% and I just used it till it went totally flat and charged it for like 8-12 hours, is that the correct way?

Mine was at 60% if I remember correctly. I played with it a while, charged it some, played with it more later, charged it the rest of the night.

There may be a 'suggested' way to do it, but it really doesn't matter that much to me. I've seen opinions and methods in every direction. I charge it when it needs it when I feel like it. Although I have read and seen many people say it is not good to fully discharge the battery.

For some technical info on charging, there is a pretty good article at Battery University.

Got my replacement today, very disappointed. It already crashed once and I compared it to my old one, and the colours are not as sharp or dark on the new one! Another week of waiting for a replacement :-(

Sorry to hear that.

A factory reset may help the crashing. Is the auto-brightness thing on? Turning that off may help the colors.

I'm expecting my replacement today. I'm holding my breath.

I absolutely love this tablet! I suppose that I have a slight light bleed in the right bottom corner but couldn't care less. I don't know if I like the speakers or the screen more. The standby time of this tablet far exceeds the other two that I've owned. I've been leaving it on but in airplane mode while at work to see if things are stable and have only lost 1% all day!

Ohh man! I love my Nexus 10. I've been on it all day until the battery ran dead.

The screen is beautiful! It's SO fast & even with ALL of my Apps on it I have 11GB to spare.

Couldn't be happier!

No light bleed here, nor any crashes. Seems to run smooth, l am amazed how well these run. Now it isn't my i7-3820 laptop but I didn't get it to replace that either..........

I just wish they had a 4G (Cell) version. I got tired a waiting and got this one. I tether to my phone, when there is no WIFI available, but that's a pain. If they come out with a Cell one tomorrow, I will see how much I can get for this one and then buy the cell version.
But, other than that, I do love it.
