I bought a 4.0 refurb through ebay a year ago (I checked my bank statements to be sure and it turns out I must have received it exactly a year ago today!) I've had no problems with it at all so I'd...

Poweramp does seem to get the most praise but my preferred player is PlayerPro. I installed over a dozen before choosing though, each had its merits and faults. I made a check-list and PlayerPro met...

Don't worry about taking it off charge when it tells you too, it won't hurt to leave it connected. It also won't hurt to charge it when it's nearly full.

Well... the 4.0 and 5.0 would be the biggest sellers because they've been available for a year longer. I think I noted here before that the 4.0 disappeared from the UK Samsung site some time ago and...

What does airplane mode do? As far as I could see, it only disables wifi (then re-enables it when you cancel) but you can still re-enable wifi manually and remain in airplane mode so what's the...

2. Storage capacity and does it have a microSD slot?
