    Or look at it this way. What idiot would make a tablet without an LED flashlight? Many of them actually.

    Frankly I've never been inclined to want to use a tablet as a "camera"... when I already have a phone that does that already. :D

    Not true. Lots of mobile devices have cameras with flash. I have the 7 inch.

    Eh.... I don't care about no flashlight. I don't need it anyway. A camera with a flash would be nice though:D

    They made a camera without any ability to focus.


    Nothing surprises me anymore :p

    Cheapo devices probably.

    Anyway they've had fixed-focus cameras ever since Mr Eastman invented the box Kodak Brownie. :D

    Most tablets have no flash. And how come you didn't notice this when you purchased the product?

    LG Leon is a definite "budget" phone. But, the rest of the phone is very solid.
    I'd probably use it as a daily if not for the absence of the ability to focus.

    Uhm, I'm not quite sure just what your ranting over. It's not like Samsung advertised this model as having a camera flash, or even implied that it did.

    The Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) has a flash. Just sayin' because I have one. Never use it and it's pretty weak, but it's there.

    So basically you're pissed at Samsung because you didn't take the time to read through any product description notes to make a better choice in what you purchased?

    How do you like it overall? Do you find it's too big to hold comfortably or is it practical? If you mean 10 inch?

    My Note 4 and S5 phones take better pictures w/o flash most of the time than when flash is used.

    That is one half-a**ed tablet. It was just barely fast enough to run At Bat, but the sound was so terrible I had to get an external speaker to hear the broadcasters. It didn't have an accelerometer so I couldn't use it with my astronomy programs.

    It's sitting in a drawer unused. I bought another Acer.

    I bought it as a refurb. No documentation sent with it.

    I got annoyed with Samsung. I rooted their phones to get rid of the crap. They put too much on it. I have 2 Samsung laser printers - 1 color and 1 grayscale which will duplex. Neither printer will work with the Samsung printer app on the Moto. It can't find the SD card.They did work with the Oppo.
    My SD card is media so the printer won't work. Hammermill's app works just fine.

    I use it less than my Tab4. I like the 7" format for reading because it's lighter and more convenient. The Note 10.1 (yes, 10") has a great screen and i like s-pen, but if I hold it longer than 15 minutes my wrist aches and my fingers start to go numb. I will take 99% of my mobile pictures with my Nexus 6 which has a better camera than either Tab.

    Of course I rarely use the flash with my Nexus, either. It's just not conducive to picture taking.

    If I want a good picture, I'll use my Nikon D5200 ;)

    I don't think tablets ever have flash, I've never seen any with one.

    All my tablets don't have flash but not like I used their back cameras anyway. I can't picture myself pulling out my 10" tablet to take a picture of that cat that stole my muffin. I have my phone or camera for that.
