The tablet advertises 8GB of memory, but almost half of it is pre-loaded system software and bloatware. No problem? Problem. I make sure to download all my kids' apps to the SD card. However, everytime there is an update, the tablet moves the app back to the system memory. My older Samsung phone would not do this; I can't find a way to make the tablet keep the app where I put it. The tablet will not download a new app or update an old one if there is less than 0.5GB free. Doesn't matter if the app is small, I automatically get an "Insufficient Storage" error.
So, every couple of weeks, I have to purge Cache, manually (and individually) move all the updated apps back to the SD card, then check for any other random files, and THEN I can download or update apps.
The tablet comes with minor bloatware compared to some off-brand tablets. Most of it can be disabled or uninstalled. The device is quick to respond and can be easily tweaked to make the transition animations even smoother. Compared to other tablets I've owned, the battery life is superb. My Kindle Fire doesn't have this kind of battery life. I spent around three hours reading and surfing the web, only to find out that I had used about 25% battery power. There are many settings that can be altered to help extend battery power. Reading a book on my phone drops the battery to around 75% after an hour and a half (sometimes less, if I disable a few things). There is a definite difference between the two.
The only drawback with the tablet, as others have pointed out, is the limitation of space. I have room for books and a few convenient apps, but that's about it. Even with an SD card, I am limited as to what I can install on the device. And from what I've noticed with my phone, any apps that are updated in the play store will move from your SD card, back to the internal storage. It's an aggravation but something that happens on many Android devices. Even if you can move some apps to the SD card, things like books through the Google Play Store don't seem to be stored on the SD card. The app can be moved, but not the books (please correct me if I'm wrong. It appeared that they didn't move, only the app). My books take up quite a bit of space! If you want more room, I'd look at some of the more expensive Samsung tablets. So far I'm very impressed by their tablets and will look at their models when making future purchases.
Edit 5/3/2018: I've had this tablet for almost one year, and it still impresses me with its battery life. Sometimes I leave it in sleep mode and forget until a few days later when I go to turn it on. I once left it in sleep mode for a week and found the tablet still above 70% power. None of my previous tablets could have done that. It's still my number one tablet. My phone drains faster than this tablet!
This tablet worked well for 6 months. At the 6 month mark it would no longer charge up. I sent it back to Samsung as it was still under warranty- with a detailed explanation of the problem. The Samsung rep instructed me to return my tablet along with the charger. They then returned my repaired tablet to me, without my charger. I had to wait one week for Samsung to send me a charger. They actually informed me they would overnight it…. And five days later I received it. And my tablet did NOT charge up. I called Samsung and asked what they did to fix my tablet. They gave me the number to a repair center. I called the repair center.. only for them to tell me they were not the repair center that fixed my tablet. I again called Samsung back and was given a different number. This repair center informed me that my tablet was “in working order and passed all checks” but they couldn’t actually see what was done to repair it. (However, I can tell you, THEY DID NOT REPAIR IT, as it still would not charge up).
I sent in the tablet for a second time and asked them to please fix it and to let me know what they did to fix it. Second time it is returned and AGAIN I plug in the tablet only for a red X to appear over the battery and the tablet still will not charge. (Multiple chargers and different outlets are tried as well)
I call Samsung and ask why they keep sending me back my unrepaired tablet. They have no answer and instruct me to send it in a third time. Soooo, hoping that the third time is a charm (and having no other recourse) I send in the tablet- again with detailed explanation. This time, Samsung instructs me to track my tablet and call when I see that it is received so I can speak directly to the repair center. (Who has time for that?? I wonder.. but I do as instructed.) I track the tablet, see that it is received, call, and am told that my tablet has arrived but has not been “checked in” and I will need to call back later. I have also included my phone number and ask to be called before my tablet is shipped back. Of course, that doesn’t happen and they ship me back the tablet for a third time. AND FOR A THIRD TIME THE TABLET STILL WILL NOT CHARGE UP.
Samsung informs me that after sending it in three times I can now attempt to get a new tablet. Again, this tablet is 6 months old, under warranty and it is a problem they clearly could not fix. Two weeks ago, Samsung said they would contact me about how to get this new tablet. I was told to send in my bill of sale. I did. They then called me and left a message telling me they received the bill of sale and to please call Samsung back. I call back, am placed on hold for 20 min only to be told that they need my bill of sale. I (not so calmly inform them that they already have my bill of sale). 45 min later they tell me, “Oh sorry, we need your serial number, it wasn’t on your bill of sale.” Why did I have to wait over one hour for them to tell me they needed the serial number????? I will never know. And I can’t just read the serial number to them, they need the serial number from Amazon.
Amazon sends me what I need and I send the info off to Samsung. Samsung has now informed me.. my case is “pending” and I will be contacted in 11-12 days.

While my daughter enjoys it very much, it is only good to install a small app here and there because the operating system takes up most of the space and none of the apps (amazon prime, netflix, etc) will allow me to select the SD card to put the downloads on. They have made their function unavailable to that storage option. Rendering this device unusable for the purpose I intended for when wifi is not available. (Like the five hour plane ride... that I could spend $60 one way for wifi during the trip IF offered and only then). Not worth it.
This has been a hard lesson in 'futility' and buyer beware. I am so disappointed in the methods used these days to force us to spend more money and give us less ability to use what we buy for whatever we want. They force us to choose a tablet that will work with the apps we want because they've made these 'unrootable'.
So much waste...
