  • The great and the disappointing!
    Reviewed by Ivett - September 28, 2019

    I have recently purchased my SR T290 and while it is easy to use and fast enough for my purposes, I can't get over the terrible colour of photos and screen. I am really hoping I have missed something but I cannot find any more settings to change the colour settings. Everything is subdued shades of purple, Brown's and yellows! I don't understand how you can hope to get realistic photos (which are otherwise of good quality) without the full colour spectrum including shades of red pink and orange

    Reviewed by Monti - October 16, 2020

    I did buy a Samsung tab A just 4 months ago for my daughter and suddenly it stopped charging. When we check with them they said you have to check with Samsung and when we touch base with Samsung they consider it as a physical damage as the charging socket was broken . We didn't broke the charging socket and we used to charge the tablet with the original charger . Now I have to buy a new tablet for my daughter and for another 200$ but this time I will not use Samsung or even best buy . Totally wast of money

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
