      Returned for several reasons

      Here's why we returned this tablet after one day: 1) The kids mode is glitchy and doesn't truly lock kids out of the main user interface. The drawing app crashed multiple times, sometimes backing out into kids mode but sometimes crashing the kids mode and backing into the main Android interface. This defeats the purpose of having a lockable kids mode where they can only access pre approved apps. 2) You cannot uninstall the subscription based Samsung Kids app. That and the other bloatware meant that we started running out of space after about 24 hours, despite having a 64gb micro SD card. Most apps can only be downloaded to the internal memory. Other problems: -There is only one rear facing speaker and it is exactly where a toddlers legs are when she holds it on her lap. The volume in the store sounded good because it was bouncing off a solid surface. In real life, the volume was insufficient. -To let two different kids use it, you have to set up separate users, each with their own version of kids mode, and manually (as the parent) back out of kids mode, sign into a different Google user account, and then relaunch kids mode. -Poor viewing angles: it's difficult for two kids to watch at the same time. -Samsung flips the back button from the left side to the right side. Not a deal breaker, just weird. In general, the Samsung UI seemed less intuitive than stock Android. -We were given a lot of misinformation from the Samsung reps about other tablets at Best Buy we were considering. Positives -The device seems solidly built. -The bumper fits well. -It's nice to easily add a restricted user. Although that's a feature of Android Lollipop, not all tablets support this.

      Disappointing

      Had the kids galaxy 3 tab before this and loved it (with the orange cover), so bought 2 of these... very disappointed. This is not smooth when scrolling down, has a tiny hitch in the display as the processor continually tries to catch up with even just looking through the menu. There is also a descent delay when waiting on apps to load, ok for toddlers, but not ideal. Also, the screen is not super sensitive so it takes a couple tries (even for me- use touch screen tech every day) to swipe to open the screen and when choosing things- not ideal for kids. Did not plan on using the kids subscription but still expected a kids mode like the last one had. This does allow for restricted users but it has some settings locked and makes you leave them accessible on the restricted user's profile... so they can access settings (not all- some are locked for admin only, but enough to make me not like it for my 4 & 6 year olds), camera, etc. It will let you "hide" them on their side, but they can hit the 3 box menu in the top right and choose to "show hidden" apps, so it doesn't give me the peace of mind handing it over to my toddler like a true kids mode does. Not sure if this is corrected with the monthly fee subscription or not, but I'm not going to commit to that either way, so will be returning these tomorrow. Pro's- seemed to be great build quality. Usually LOVE Samsung... really try for brand loyalty, but my old kindle fire hd has a better built in kid's mode than this one that's designed for kids...

      My Grandson loves it.

      I bought this tablet because my Grandson has three other Samsung tablets and loves them. He is 5 years old and Autistic. He has had other tablets that have worked for a while then quit so I got him this one to replace one that is going bad. The other Samsung tablets are ALL working just great. My wife and my daughter both have Samsung tablets and they are working just fine. My daughter has loaded parental software onto this tablet (as well as all his other tablets) not because he would go places ha is not supposed to but because this lets him work with his apps and NOT make in app purchases. This is the smallest screen of all the tablets he has but it is VERY easy for him to see and hold. While it has the protective bumper around it He does not need it. I would not hesitate to get another one when/if it becomes necessary. As technology changes we will be getting him other tablets. Samsung will be where we go first!

      Great for the intended user

      This is a good quality budget tablet that is well spec'd for its intended user: kids. Hardware is essentially identical to the Galaxy Tab E Lite, but for $10 more it comes with a bumper (no need to buy an additional case) and the Samsung Kids app pre-installed (and with a 3 month free subscription - $5/mo thereafter if you want to retain access). Out of the box, it will behave just like Tab E Lite until you create a Samsung account and sign into the kids app. The quality of the screen is good, but not great. Viewing angles, colors, brightness and touch sensitivity are certainly not as good as a higher end Galaxy tab or iPad, but for the price point, it is solid enough. For a tab that was released just a few months ago, I'm surprised and a little disappointed it doesn't come with Android 5.0 (lollipop), and in late May Samsung doesn't currently offer a lollipop update for this tab. I'm optimistic that Samsung will offer an update in the near future. Other than that, it's relatively snappy, plays all the games my kid likes (jetpack joyride, subway surfer, etc.) smoothly, and it's a solid little budget tab that is good deal at retail price and a great deal if you can catch it at the current sale price.

      Great Tablet For Kids

      I bought this tablet on a great deal, 69.99 for a kids tablet. It was to replace the previous version of the Samsung tablet. My son really enjoys using but is still not getting used to how to navigate it. You have to pay for a subscription for the kids mode. The kids mode has a circle, which you have to move your finger around to go to different apps. Especially for a kid, this can be hard if you don't have steady fingers. The cost isn't too much if you buy yearly, about $40 but you do not get a refund if you cancel (you have to pay all at once)- this is after the 3 month trial period. You have the option of doing monthly but it would be something like 7.99 a month. I like the apps they offer but wished they could simplify it for younger kids. Some reviews mention that there is no front facing camera so you can't Skype but we don't use the tablet for that so it's not a big issue. I want to mention that best buy has a great 2 year replacement plan. I think it's only 25-30 dollars, which is well worth it if a kid is using. I had to replace the tablet in a year.

      lack of app support and "Kid" really?

      I am a huge samsung fan usually (TVs, fridge, phones, tablets, etc). however this device is my first major disappointment. purchased for my child however every app fails to support this device (Direct TV and now Amazon cam cloud recently). The point of this was to have access to videos when traveling for the child (DVR and online). So no good here. Additionally this is a kids device - understanding that I believe the recommended age is 3 and I am using for a 2 yo - it is still a massive failure. The only "kid" feature is the case. Market a kids tablet and you should have easy access to locking the tablet during video play so the kid isn't clicking off the screen etc. and thus ending the video. I have downloaded some fairly adequate apps, but again should be basic function of a "Kids tablet"

      My son 20 months old watches his big sisters use their tablet and constantly takes my phone so I decided time to get him his own. Originally was going for a different one (less money) but they didn't have it in store and decided with this one. Nice changes from the original kids galaxy tab my daughter had a few years ago. He likes to play the games although he doesn't quite understand everything yet we explain to him what's going on and I'm pretty sure he'll get it but his second birthday. Samsung never disappoints in electronics so I'm glad I opted to get this one although it wasn't my first choice initially. With insurance for two years everything came out to about $140.00 not bad at all and a name I know I trust and the insurance a must well worth it.

      We bought this device as a birthday gift for our 3 year old. We had a leapfrog leap pad for our older child and wanted to just new games for it, but you needed to buy a new version of the leap pad for the new games. It was much more expensive than the Samsung Kids Tab. It came with protective cover and 200 free games, all of which are educational. You can lock and monitor time and category child is using as well as what type of skill, creativity, critical thinking etc they are exercising. Very cost effective, easy to use, upgradeable memory ( unlike Ipad) and does not need data can use WiFi. It van also be used by adults as a regular tablet. We love it!
