I bought this tablet in June 2013 and since then I have used it a lot. The only thing which annoys me is that Samsung does not care for its user when it comes to Software updates. As today Android L is fun to use and its new material design . So now I rooted my tablet recently and is running latest version of Android . Samsung touch wiz is good but too much bloatware can make it slow. The Camera is just fine... Pics are not very sharp. That's disappointing but well its a cheap tablet so it was expected. Buy this Tablet only if you can't afford an expensive or you don't care about specs. The pros and cons I mentioned are as it is. This tablet is the way it is. I am used to it but my recommendation is to buy only if you want to try this. Its a good tablet for normal users but not for those who want best specifications.Build quality 9/10Reception 1/10Call quality 1/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 5/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 6/10Display 7/10Battery 8/10
- Big Battery, S Pen, Smooth UI
- No software update, Screen not very sharp.

super recommended for note-takers/paper-haters/business oriented users

I've been using my n5120 8.0 tablet for about 2 month so far. Absolutely in love with it. Best device i've had so far.
Probably, i'm the only user to use it like a phone! So far i've been using it like my primary and only phone. I carry a little bag with me where i put my wallet, sunglasses etc, and there goes the Note too. Most times it's convenient enough, except for occasions i go running/dancing - when i have to leave the phablet behind, cause it's too clunky - can't put it on my arm (!) like i used with galaxy s2, while running. The ideal solution for this is probably a smartwatch. Maybe even a smartwatch with a sim.
My primary use of the tablet is a notebook. Since i bought it, i stopped using paper to write down. Using samsung note software to create full-size notebooks at work with the pen. I then back up those files to gdrive automatically. For paper-haters, like me, it's a life saver! The pen works really well. Samsung's software is very neat. It can recognize handwritten staff and convert to typed symbols.
The battery life is a downside. When i use it at work, writing with s-pen for about 8 hours (some of it with screen on) the battery is over at about 17.00, even before the day is over. I wish there were some battery saving feature for note taking. I guess, i'll buy an external battery accumulator to solve it, cause when you rely on your tablet at your primary tool for everything incl. business, you can't afford to have it shut down with no power. Probably an average...Build quality 8/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 7/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 6/10
- S-pen is amasing, great for writing/note taking
- 2GB RAM/ 4 QUAD - super fast!
- Huge screen - great for reading
- N5120 with sim - use it as my only phone
- Great price! (the lowest in Note series)
- No flash
- No gorilla glass - need good case to protect screen

Overall a decent tablet. The biggest plus of this palm size tablet is of course the ability to sketch and write via the amazing pen. The OCR is pretty amazing, not much lag in recognizing any sort of handwriting.
I did not like the fact the battery drained fairly quick. I'm not even using it on energy intensive apps and this thing looses just about all of it's full charge before the end of my day. My daughter was simply using it to read 75% of the day. The tablet was full charge in the morning, just on reading, the tablet was about 15% by 9pm in the evening.
I also found that the camera is lackluster compared to my iphone 4S. It's not the resolution but rather the picture quality, with regards to its contrast to brightness ratio and color saturation - it should be a lot better.Build quality 8/10Reception 9/10Call quality 7/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 5/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 5/10Text input 9/10Display 7/10Battery 3/10

best i have tried
okhodire has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
almost everyday I read all the news and articles, I immediately get hook with this unit. I bought the GT-N5100 model for it is the only model available in our country. It got tons of great functionality and very handy for my work and daily activities. The S-Pen is very superb however all my notes can't be viewed or print without using Samsung printer. Overall its very snappy, reliable at work but lacks in certain areas like camera flash, better resolution and longer battery life. I also noticed that the battery gets heat up a little bit when being used in longer timeBuild quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 8/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 8/10
- the quad core 1.6GH
- internet browsing
- battery life
- speakers place

This is my first tablet. Before I want to buy iPad Mini but when Samsung announced this and almost everyday I read all the news and articles, I immediately get hook with this unit. I bought the GT-N5100 model for it is the only model available in our country. It got tons of great functionality and very handy for my work and daily activities. The S-Pen is very superb however all my notes can't be viewed or print without using Samsung printer. Overall its very snappy, reliable at work but lacks in certain areas like camera flash, better resolution and longer battery life. I also noticed that the battery gets heat up a little bit when being used in longer time. I hope Samsung would also consider to add other apps for the multi window mode. If your after for almost same functionality but no S-Pen go for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0..Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 9/10

The Best Tablet on the Market
agambhandari has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
It is very quick, snappy, the size is exactly what you need. Not too big....not too small....not too heavy. The price is something that could have been shaved off. I don't need the 3G but Samsung doesn't offer the WiFi only version in India.Build quality 8/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10
