My friend has an iPad and was saying how convenient it was and so on. I love Android so I thought this would be great. I am sorely disappointed.
First, the battery runs out as quick as my phone. Perhaps I'll notice a difference with the WiFi sleep policy change (when screen turns off). I had it on never sleep, which is dumb because I have the Wifi model. However, the only way I get past a day of mild usage is if the WiFi is turned off completely.
Second, the transformer outlet plug. Why the hell does it have to use ONLY Samsung's? That's low. I keep a generic USB outlet plug at work and was hoping to just carry my cord as "backup" in case I needed power. Nope, can't do it. I can't even charge it via my computer! (Yeah, it draws more power, blah blah blah... but seriously... why not a pop-up telling us that it will charge slower rather than this weird X over the battery?)
Third, the 30 pin connector. Why couldn't they give us a secondary micro USB port for charging and whatever else? At first, this didn't irritate as much, but then I encountered the issue in the second point.
Fourth, after the update, it randomly turns off while charging. Last night, I plugged it in and after a few minutes, I came back to check something. It wouldn't turn on. I thought it might be the extension cord (for whatever reason) and so I plugged it into another spot and turned it on. Then I went to bed. This morning, it was off again. WHY!?
Fifth, screen lag. On my other phones and a friend's iPhone, Sketchbook Mobile works flawlessly. On the 10.1, it dots and lags. This isn't just SBM's issue. Even their own note taking fastapp (or whatever it's called) has lag issues. You can't draw a damn thing that doesn't look like a five year old did it (and I can actually draw).
Sixth, that damn screen capture button that came with the new update. How do I get rid of it? I like the option to screen capture, but I don't need it every freaking minute.
Seventh, when is that damn bluetooth keyboard coming out? Yeah, that's just a gripe. I need a keyboard because I am going to do some study/research and am HOPING that this will be a decent way to write on the fly. I have a feeling I am just going to waste 100 euros on it. I doubt it, but I really hope that the charge plug will have a 30 pin AND a micro USB so that you can charge both at once if you wanted. (Seriously, I'd understand if it wasn't a Samsung product like Logitechs, but since it is, they should provide a way to integrate dual charging since these products are pretty much bound at the spine. I dislike the idea of having to draw out two cables and two transformers to get the job done.)
Please tell me I am wrong on these issues. Please tell me how to fix them if you can. I regret having bought it from the US with no option to return it.
