Great book. I bought a Galaxy Tab 2 several years ago and had a heck of a time learning all the ins and outs of it. Could not find a decent users guide at the time and was new to Android operating systems. To say I was lost is an understatement. Been using MS Windows since the 80's so I'm not new to technology but just never used anything with an Android operating system until a few years ago. I recently upgraded to a new Galaxy Tab 4 (sweet little device) so when I saw this book I figured it had to help the jump to the new Kit-Kat version. (Who names these things anyhow?) Well it sure did help me a bunch. The format is clear and easy to read. Step by step instructions and lots of pictures and diagrams. If you just bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 this should be your next purchase. Get the Kindle version like I did and put the Kindle app on your Tab 4. Instant help for you on your Galaxy where ever it goes, the "book" goes. I highly recommend this book.
I got this device to use Quizlet, and it works OK for that. Wanted the book to learn to fully used the device, but I DO NOT WANT TO MAKE A CAREER OF LEARNING IT. I wanted to get internet links from my desktop, so thought I could e-mail that information from the desktop to the Tab 4. However, the book has been NO HELP in setting up e-mail. It seems to presume you're already a tech wiz on e-mail technology, and does not start from the beginning and step you through. I follow the steps that are vaguely and briefly indicated, and which the device seems to automatically step you through - HOWEVER, THERE IS ZERO HELP WHEN AN ERROR MESSAGE POPS UP AND STOPS YOU COLD WITH NOWHERE TO GO ???? ----- Error message = "Setup could not finish. Authentication failed. Edit details." ---- NOTHING IN THE BOOK HELPS IN ANY WAY, CANNOT FIND ANYTHING ON TAB 4 OWNERS GUIDE, NOTHING ON THE INTERNET ---- NOW WHAT? Throw it in the trash and forget it? As with many books on how to use a computer program or device, the author does not seem to have the empathy or communication skills to figure out where the person who is new to the device or program is, and what that person needs to learn to get started with it. He doesn't seem to understand that other people do not know what he knows, so he's only giving partial information, not much help for many people because of the important things missing.
It is not my own opinion, but I bought this for my friends overseas. According to their understanding, this book covers lots of things and very helpful since, the Tab itself does not come with any user manual as they used to. And my friends are very happy with this product.
I love the item but don't like the fact I received no instruction manual and it was in another language. When I wrote to the manufacturer, I received instructions on how to change the language and a discount on the purchase was given to my payment account. This was very nice BUT still didn't help me with a manual. Finally had to order one out of the discount given to me, so still was really not given proper treatment. I don't like the fact that no manuals are in tech items a person can purchase. They just assume the buyer knows it all. Well, not all are techies, so learning at a later time is harder. Aside from that, the Galaxy Tab 4 is a sweet dream, I do have to charge more often than I feel I should.
A good resource for setting up and getting familiar with the Tab 4.Explanations, illustrations and instructions are clear and easy to follow..I highly recommend it for new users and as a reference book to keep handy for new situations and applications.TAT
I wanted something that delve in the Android OS. This book does not take you there. But it is a very good book to get you started with a variety of tablets or phones. Covers the majority of functions most people will use, and in detailed steps.
Machine is programmed to change to accommodate your apparent intentions. Too many inputs can cause confusion and effective crashing. The book guides you through a reset and a return to normal operations. Data will be lost.I highly recommend the book.
Helped me discover things about my tablet that I couldn't readily figureally out on my own.
