If you goal is to mostly use it surf the internet or reading, then at this price it is a solid device. I've recently put on Lineage OS 16.0 and it definitely runs a bit faster than the stock Samsung Odin ROM running 7.0 (Nougat). The only real problem with Lineage OS 16.0 is that you need to turn on Air Plane mode when you're not using it, otherwise there is a significant battery drain. Otherwise, Lineage has some nice extra feature and bring extra security and performance.

Overall I really like this tablet for the weight and size when reading and if you're tech savvy enough to root/install ROMs then at $144 it's a pretty solid device.

For installing Lineage OS take a look at this pretty thorough guide. Just be aware that some of the files are old: https://www.cyanogenmods.org/foru...wifi-2016/

XDA Lineage OS 16.0 Forum:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/...0-t3829962

Some notes:
You'll want to use TWRP 3.2.3.0 because the newest version has some issues - https://dl.twrp.me/gts210vewifi/t...g.tar.html

Also, when loading TWRP via the Odin installer, do not set Auto-Reboot. You'll need to boot into recovery mode afterwards otherwise you'll have to install TWRP all over again if you accidentally restart back into the stock ROM.

If you're having trouble wiping the data partition within TWRP, it is due to encryption being enabled. You'll need to repair the partition, convert the partition to FAT or ExFAT, then convert the partition again to EXT4. You can watch this video [youtube.com] for details

Hope that helps!

Lol. I need to check the specs?? Your take on the screens is incredibly ignorant and shows you haven't used both which I have. The s2 has a beautiful OLED display while the HD 10's is serviceable at best. They cannot compare at all even if you prefer the more awkward longer aspect ratio on a large tablet for some reason. Also the processor is octo vs quad and has a much better GPU. While I'm here I'll also add the s2 has a much better build quality and the Fire is nearly twice as thick and significantly heavier. Top it off with a fingerprint reader vs none on the Fire. The Fire is a budget tablet through and through. It cannot compare to a high end device like this even if it is a little older.

When Apple stopped making the iPad Mini, I needed a new smallish tablet for reading e-books and settled on the 8" model of this tablet (SM-T713). Absolutely loved this thing for that purpose. Formatting to white text on a black background AMOLED screen using an app like Moon+ reader was a game changer for me. So much easier on the eyes than the iPad Mini's screen.

Also, installing a new battery in this is a pretty painless process as you gently pop off the back of the device and it just clips right back on as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IPjGWXiuq8 Plenty of replacement batteries available on Amazon.

It really is a great tablet if you're not looking for the latest and greatest, and especially when using it like I do (primarily for e-books and a little Youtube/Netflix). Having said that, installing LineageOS is a must so if that's not something you're willing or able to do, then I would pass.

Meh. I've had to wipe mine and install fewer apps to improve sluggish performance and poor battery life. Very impressed, though, the first year I had it.

Edit: I have the second gen which was supposed to have a better processor.

I'm having same issues did wiping actually improve performance? I also have it reboot loop if battery at 35 percent.

Seems to be the second gen with the snapdragon 652. Still pretty sluggish performer but might be ok for watching content and reading which is not bad for a $144 tablet. Has a nice display too. Thinking about buying one and rooting it to get the lineage 8.0 os on it. I use a ipad pro 11" as my main and this could be a secondary.

Bought this new and it will be the last Samsung product I ever buy. It's loaded with half finished bloatware apps that can't be deleted. I've had to wipe mine several times because it is sluggish and Samsung gave it one freaking Android upgrade. Samsung really does make some terrible products and refuses to support them. If only OnePlus would make a tablet.

You can tell which gen based on the processor in it. First gen had the terrible Samsung processors that were under powered.

Definitely give it a try. If after that you're still having the battery problem at 35% you'll want to replace it (the battery)

Been super happy with my og galaxy tab s and thought about upgrading to this. After reading reviews, this 2nd generation has a shittier battery, screen resolution, and has no flash. What a joke, guess I need to wait for a sale on the Galaxy Tab S4

How much will/typically the s3 and/or s4 go on sale for?


On your opinion, would this s2 suffice for mostly reading and some youtube? Thanks
