This may be indicative of the issue I have with Android devices in general, but Days 4-7 of the review needed to be scrapped as I actually needed to have a fair amount of productive time on these days and the Tab simply was not reliable enough to ensure that would happen.
Days 4-7 will be revisited in the very near future.
July 9, 2014, 3:21 PM. The Tab worked quite well today when using PlanGrid on it. Drawing access and markups were fast and the learning curve from the iOS version to the Android version was barely noticable. I am finding that using the home button and the buttons to the left and right-hand sides of it has become easier. Still not used to the double-tap accessing the voice commands instead of multi-tasking though.
8:07 AM. Things started well, but quickly fell apart. The Tab locked up and refused to leave the home screen. The case and the power button were able to sleep/wake it, but no other user interaction was permitted. Thankfully, I had the iPad in my bag as a Plan B. Plan B got me through a complete job site walk-through and punch list.
10:30 AM. Tab still locked up. Forced a restart and it appears to be working normal again.
9:05 PM. Most of the rest of the day required the use of a PC (CADD, higher-volume email). The Tab seemed to be working in normal order and even gave me the correct notifications I set up in Wunderlist to remind me to pick up a few items on the way home. My iPhone and iPad, however, reminded me that my iPad Mini dash mount kit had arrived at the Pacific Place Amazon lockers and that I had yet another project to work on.
