I bought myself a Samsung Tab A 8" tablet in February 2021 - first time I bought a decent one, at about £160. I had a Tesco Hudl 2 as my first tablet for £99 - but then they stopped making them - never wanted one before that, but the Hudl 2 was really excellent and I used it for everything possible (having got a bit hooked on the mobile idea with the Acer Aspire One 10" netbook I had before - and still have, now with double the RAM and an SSD fitted). Between the two I had a number of cheaper tablets from Amazon. All of which still work, but aren’t that great.
What gets me is, the first time I buy a known top manufacturer tablet and after just 26 months it’s gone on strike. Networking is fubard. Ain’t that just typical! Yeah, spent a few hours going through all possible solutions and the thing is deffo just not going to connect. Makes me wonder if it’s one of those infamous built-in failures, conveniently after the warranty has just expired.
Still, I’m looking at the A7 now - if that one does anything similar Samsung won’t be getting any more of mo money, homes.
