Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2 crashing, freezing issues

By Peter Chubb - Nov 14, 2013

Over the past few weeks we have seen several Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 reviews, and while they seem pretty impressed, there are still one or two issues. Okay, so it should not come as a shock that all is not perfect, but to have apps crashing while reviewing the tablet isn’t something Samsung would have wanted.

When consumers start to read reviews or watch videos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2 and notice that the tablet has crashing, and freezing issues, well it is something that Samsung needs to address.

If you thought it might be an issue with review units, then you would be wrong because owners are having issues as well. One Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2nd-gen owner has said that his was a disaster and said that his tablet started to crash the moment it was taken out of the box.

Other owners have said that the Notification pane would often freeze on them, and that’s without any apps running. There have been several instances where the Samsung service centers would have to do a fresh install of the OS, although they did acknowledge that a new version of the OS was needed in order to rectify these issues.

For those of you who might want to hold off getting this tablet until the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 model gets Android 4.4 KitKat, then you have a long wait because it is not expected to land on the device until early next year.

    My galaxy note 10.1 2014 is one week old and it started to crash today, having crashed 5 times throughout the day. Please fix this, samsung, otherwise it’s an amazing tablet, specially for digital art.

    I did a recent installation on my 10.1 Galaxy tablet and now it won’t even boot up.

    I recently purchased a Galaxy Note 8.0, and am really disappointed with it. Keeps freezing, I have to turn it off and on countless times and it still doesn’t fix it. Swipe won’t work, Samsung just told me to restore to factory settings, they acted like they were surprised at the problems I’m having, yet I read all over the internet of the freezing problems with many of these tablets !! Haven’t restored to factory settings yet, they gave me some instructions, but weren’t that helpful. I am not happy with the tablet at all and getting to the stage where I will be returning it too. Not worth the money for something you have to fight with so much to use.

    yeah, this is crazy. I just bought a Galaxy Note 10.1 2013 version, same issue. Locks up at least once a day. I’m being laughed at by my Apple buddies for not buying a iPad. I’m returning it first thing tomorrow. I can’t live with this thing.

      I have the Samsung Note 10.1 2014 Edition, and encounter hangs while playng or trying to exit a game.

      Often a game will restart itself while I a playing. but my guess is that in those cases the game is being updated to a new version.

      The big problem is hangs when trying to exit a game that has no explicit exit path.

      The home button will bring up anything, not even a menu of running apps when it is held down a little longer. The back and menus keys also do nothing.

      Even the power button won’t work properly; it won’t lock the device, nor bring up the shutdown menu. It will do a hard restart if it is heeld down longenough.
