Bear with me here. I eventually come to a point. For Christmas my wife and I got ourselves a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 wifi only. Just to play with, to keep in the living room. It had issues right away. They have a program called Kies. I think it supposed to let me link a pc on my home network to the Tab. I could never get it to work. I found a workaround though. I started a word with friends game with my daughter. We got her a Kindle Fire for Christmas and she just loves it. The words for friends app on the Tab started crashing, closing unexpectedly. It got to the point where it wouldn't even play anymore. I installed words on my droid bionic. No problem. It found my games in progress and I picked up from where I left off. Hmmmm... Then the Tab started developing a power issue. Sometimes it wouldn't wake up. I would have to hold the power button for 12 seconds to reboot it. It got worse and worse. I got a replacement Tab from Amazon. I installed all the updates and the new Tab wouldn't play word, and had some networking issues, but overall I thought it was better. Last night the new Tab did the power thing. Now I am pissed. I have been all over the boards here and a lot of people are having the same issues on the SGT, well the power issue anyway. For what we paid for the Tab I could return it and get 2 Kindle Fires, one for me and one for my wife. I have been lurking here on the KF board and have some questions: (FINALLY) Are you guys happy overall with the KF? And you would recommend it to a friend? What about installing apps? I see that Amazon tries to put a stranglehold on that but some of you have a workaround to install apps from the Android Market. Is it as simple as having a drop box account? Because I do. Is it robust? I saw my daughters KF for a split second on Christmas day. It seemed nice, I remember thinking it felt kind of heavy for such a small unit. To me that's ok, it felt like quality. Coming off of a SGT 10.1 will I have issues with the KF? I know the screen size is smaller. What version of Android are you on? Will it get ICS? Eventually? On the SGT I think it's at 3.2, Honeycomb. (?) I saw a list of apps that work on the KF. Some of these apps on my list are already on the list so I won't have to re-invent the wheel (I hope) Here is what I am running on the SGT (in no particular order): WiFi Manager Fing Network tools ES File Explorer AllShare (this app rocks but it might be a SGT thing?) Dolphin Browser Netflix Youtube Photobucket PingMe Etrade B of A Quickoffice Pro DropBox Google Books, Docs, Music, Calendar, Contacts, News, Google+, Maps, MyTracks, Sky Maps, etc Torque (this is really cool, an interface to your car's diagnostics) Evernote and Skitch Solitaire, Real Blackjack, Slot Machine + I am kind of a geek if you haven't figured it out yet. But I am hesitant to do any rooting only because I am inherently cheap by nature and I'm not willing to risk bricking an expensive device. Maybe it's fear of the unknown. I am the go to guy for just about everyone I know, they all come to me for their pc/ electronics/toys issues. This SGT is making me look bad and I don't like it. Haha OK so I have an ego! Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post. I need help. What do you guys think? Will I/we be happy with the KF?
