Slate 8 - Great media device - Sprint Product Ambassadors
The Slate 8 isn't going to win any awards for fastest, most powerful or highest resolution tablet. But what it does have is a super clear IPS screen and enough horsepower to run Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Google Play Movies. So what you have here is a fantastic kids or back seat media device. Or, in my case, a way to catch up on Top Gear during my lunch break! And bonus - it's basically free for existing subscribers and only few dollars a month for new customers!
Both LTE and WiFi playback kept up with the clean resolution on the tablet. I found no lag, stuttering or buffering problems watching full episodes or jumping from clip to clip on YouTube. I'm really impressed with the screen on this tablet - it's nicer than the Galaxy S2 tab I have. Brighter, clearer and wider angle of view.
Now all I need to do is find a stand or case for this to properly prop it up on my desk!
