I've had to put this off for a few days to concentrate on other ****, but I installed the Ocado App today since the system reset and this app now runs silky smooth! In fact, using this app and then switching back to chrome really shows up how badly chrome scrolls! Gonna try and find time to phone up currys tomorrow.

I really don't think I will get a replacement tbh, I think they will want to look at it and when they do they will say it is fine in their eyes, this is always how **** like this plays out in my experience.

Well, I would actually have to get in touch with Currys to get this issue sorted, but apparently we live in a world where a major retailer can make it next to impossible to actually contact them, and people and consumer watchdogs are seemingly perfectly alright with that!

I phone then up, go through about five ******* tiers of "pick option 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8" until I am finally at "press 3 if you want to discuss a fault with a Samsung tablet or phone" only for the ***** to feed me an automated statement that I should "contact Samsung for any issue with your product" and hang up on me! The motherfudgers didn't even give me Samsung's customer support phone number!

So then I sent an email to their customer support address, two days later I get this email back:

Quote:
Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:
customer.services@currys.co.uk
Your message wasn't delivered. Despite repeated attempts to deliver your message, the recipient's email system refused to accept a connection from your email system.
Contact the recipient by some other means (by phone, for example) and ask them to tell their email admin that it appears that their email system is refusing connections from your email server. Give them the error details shown below It's likely that the recipient's email admin is the only one who can fix this problem.
For Email Admins
No connection could be made because the target computer actively refused it. This usually results from trying to connect to a service that is inactive on the remote host - that is, one with no server application running.

Request a refund through your card company. That'll get their attention.

Your contract is with the retailer, not the manufacturer. Just go to the store where you purchased it. Its faulty. If you had simply changed your mind and wanted your money back, the store can make you jump through hoops. Not for faulty goods though.

Well I eventually got in touch with them (bloody christmas, insanely busy this week) and although it took quite a bit of time to get through to them on the phone and sort it, they were pretty good about accepting it for replacement sight unseen, etc, and now I've just got to package it up and post it back and when they get it, a new one will posted to me. I might be lucky and get it in time for xmas, but I won't be holding my breath!

Do Samsung Galaxy tablets come with Google Play Store out of the box?

Mine did, but you'll need to update straight away

Great thanks. Was thinking of getting an S2, but looks like its 3.5 years old already.

Galaxy's don't seem to get updates often?

Whats the best 8inch android tablet to get these days?

Whats your budget? Tighty McTightarse, or moneys-no-object?

In the middle is the Asus ZenPad.
https://www.techradar.com/news/mobil...e-world-905504

Don't believe the link that says the Lenovo Yoga Tab is £16. It links to a beanie hat...

Edit: Asus ZenPad link is also naff. Sorry. I'm not much help.

Under £250. Obviously cheaper the better! It will be a secondary tablet just for holidaying and playing emulated games on the go.

Ruled out Fire HD which have amazing prices, but because it’s quite restricted. I know you can sideload Play Store but I have a few paid apps which won’t authenticate.

The Huawei Mediad M5 looks like a contender. I do prefer the 4:3 aspect ratio of the Galaxy S2 though. Just wish there is a more recent refresh.

Will take a look at ZenPad thanks!
