I have a hard time believing that all of the reviews  here are by individuals that have actually seen the new Nook! If they had, they would have seen the screen! It is beautiful! The user experience with quad core processor and smooth and easier to navigate then with the older models . Since it's release yesterday I've had plenty of time to &quot; take it for a spin &quot; so to say..... And have really been enjoying it. I'm a big reader and found the text to be sharp and crisp. Love the front and rear facing cameras. Haven't used it yet, but, looking forward to skyping with friends and family, maybe even take a few pictures. Absolutely love the size and feel of the tablet , it's comfortable and easy to hold. Enjoy having the Nook and Google play store to shop. Plus I'm a big movie fan. Having storage of 8GB won't interfere with this as I intend to put a 32 GB SD into the device. I hope that before people write reviews, that they look at more then the specs they read on paper/internet. Trying it out makes a world of difference

I bought this device yesterday (the day it came out) and I have to say I am extremely impressed with this nook.  I love the fact that I can now organize my home screen to my satisfaction by having various folders.  I love the fact that the nook still has the shelves that you can organize.  It is running the android system which is nice.  This nook also allows you to add apps that are not in the google play store or the nook app store.  One thing that I love about this nook (though some people will disagree) is the size of the nook.  It is roughly the size of a book which I find amazing.  I have some nerve damage in my wrists so this is easy to hold and it feels almost like an actual book.  I have yet to read a full book on this device but I will say that I love the look of the books.  I flipped through a couple books last night and I loved the screen quality.  Honestly, I have not noticed a difference in screen display when comparing it to my Nook HD.  I do have a few more things that I need to check out but I am very pleased with this device.

Better than expected. I am a full blown Apple user, was thinking of getting an iPad but I don't like the iOS Nook app.  Picked up the Galaxy 4 Nook yesterday.  It's awesome.  It's fast, more versatile than an iPad and the built in reader  is great.  I do not notice any issues with the screen resolution.  Awesome tab, check it out.

I read some of the other reviews and seriously people what were you expecting?   I personally own the device and it has everything that I need and more to read my extensive collection of Nook and Kindle books.  Adding additional memory for all of $11 wasn't difficult at all.  I love the size and ease of use with this device and  plan on using this as my sole e-reader.  Definitely worth the amount of money I paid.

After using my Nook Color for years (and having it stolen 2 weeks ago), I bought the Samsung Tab 4 Nook as a replacement. First off, I can tell that because this is a tablet as well as a reader, the battery life seems to drain quicker- since there are more programs running. Although, turning the unit &quot;on&quot; takes less time and it starts quicker than prior Nooks. I used my Nook Color as a reader and nothing more, so the extra programs (Chrome, Google Play, Dropbox, etc) are not that important to me. I noticed the night vision is slightly different, it's not a true black background; however, you have more background color options, though you have no clock at the bottom to tell you how late your up reading. The unit is lite even with a case and responds quickly to page turning. Again, strictly using the Tab 4 as a reader, the resolution is perfect. Also, the bookmark responds quicker, and accessing the Nook store &amp; library on the Home screen makes searching quicker. I noticed the &quot;Wishlist&quot; is not easily accessible as it was in prior Nooks. Overall, using the Tab 4 Nook as a reader is great, just a few minor adjustments in learning the new product.

I bought my Tab 4 Nook three days ago and love it. I had the nook HD tablet before and for who think the tab 4 screen is too small, the viewing area is actually the same if not more than the Nook HD. I also do not notice a difference in text quality. For the person who said they miss having the clock on their reading page, go to Settings and turn on Status Bar, that will bring your clock and battery status symbol back. I have an Ipad and it is very tiresome to hold to read books. I have a smartphone and the screen is too small, the Tab 4 Nook is the perfect size for reading and I can hold the device in one hand. I also purchased the cover that Barnes and Nobles sells with it because it allows the tab to stand hands free in both the landscape and portrait mode which is really nice.

I find with my arthritis that the lightness of the device is a definite plus.  I've already tried out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 at Best Buy, and honestly can't tell the difference between it's resolution and my current Nook Tablet.  The fact that it has free in-store support is another plus for me, so I'm looking forward to buying the one I have on reserve asap.

The Samsung NOOK is sleek and light. I know people have mentioned the screen resolution a lot here, but I have to say, I have a NOOK HD+ and I cannot see a difference in the screen resolution. I know what the numbers say, but I am telling you, my eyes cannot detect a difference.  I love the addition of the cameras for video chats and the GPS so now I can use location based apps that only worked on my phone before. If you have a Samsung device already you can also sync your Samsung account and access your Samsung apps and data. As for the screen size, this is a personal preference, but I have read on other sites that a 10.1 inch will come out in 60 days.

Bought one yesterday and I'm glad I did.  Very nice to look at and read.  Plays videos beautifully, but I'm still mostly a reader.  It weighs a shade  less than my Nook HD.  I'm glad to have a product that is connected it a real manufacturer.  Recommend.

Just bought one and am amazed at how light it feels while reading. Easy to hold with one hand and after quite some time hand is not tired. I wanted one for reading and playing movies and was not disappointed. I have an iPad mini w retina display and displays for reading and watching media no real difference. Much faster than the previous nook and plays all my apps very well. If you are looking for a well rounded reader and tablet I recommend the new nook.

The tablet is full of bloatware that I will never use... Somewhere around 30 apps that Samsung pre-installs. And you cannot remove them. Plus having the Samsung App store and the google store competing on the same device is not intuitive at all. I am not impressed.
Chris_Melton More than 1 year ago
I bought this device yesterday as a replacement for my Galaxy Tab 2. So far the new nook does everything I need it to do and it does it well. The only reason why this is a 4 star instead of a 5 star review is that even though the new nook has better specs than the Tab 2, with all of the added software and the custom interface the new nook does not seem to run faster than the Tab 2. Hopefully this will be fixed with an update.

Many of the reviews say not to go by just the specs. Then what would you go by? Also, they state they don't see anything less visually than the HD+, but it certainly  is not better. Then why would I replace my higher resolution device? My HD+ has a larger screen for movies, live TV with my cable company app, surfing the web, reading, etc.  Not to mention  I paid $139 during the Father's Day sale, 2013. HD+ is also 16GB and accepts 64GB SD cards.Cameras on my phones, laptop, desktop, other tablets,  which I hardly use.  Put the money into the screen. A tablet is all about the screen. If you ask me it was a fire sale outlet for S inc. to dump inferior 8GB tablet as they ready themselves to release new and better. If your that impressed with thie new nook, you simply haven't looked at most of the new tech out there. How can you possibly give high marks to a device not on par with the two year old HD+, with just a better processor? It's outdated on day one. I ecpected better from b&amp;n this time around.

Please Update the Barnes and Noble Reader App to allow us to store and read books from the MicroSD Card!!! The 8gb of internal storage memory is VERY limiting when you have several magazines and a bunch of books in the device. PLUS if you keep the setting in Google Play that allows automatic updating of apps, the new app updates will DRAMATICALLY reduce the available free space of the internal storage even further!! Other than this big problem the device and software is excellent!
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Can you actually USE the 32 GB sd card, or does everything you buy from B &amp; N still have to go to the too small 8GB;  same as problem with the Nook HD.  I bought the 32 micro sd only to find out that I could not move over magazines, or anything else   to it to free up space for books -that I can only use the sd card on the HD for side-loaded items purchased elsewhere.  False advertising, st least for the nook HD

The specs on any device are important, especially internal storage. I was thinking about upgrading to this new nook device. However, it lacks enough memory with only 8GB of storage space. I have owned all previous Nook Devices with the exception of the Nook HD and HD+. However, I have a 16 GB Nook device with 8 GB of data saved on it. Therefore, this New Samsung Galaxy Tab Nook would not be an upgrade. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab Nook has all the wonderful bells and whistle, but it lacks crucial internal memory. This is an unrealistic option for someone with an all Nook Library over 8 GB of data. Barnes &amp; Noble please offer some devices with higher storage options and better quality in screen size.

I am exicted that they have worked with Samsung to offer a better product, but I love the screen size of my Nook HD+ as well as the 32GB. I'll keep watching for an upgrade to this one.

Hi, All For the ones who have purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook and those are really interested in purchasing one, heed to this information.  When Barnes and Noble made their devices, when your tablet had a hardware and/or software issue that could not be fixed in the store, you would get the chance to exchange your device under warranty. Prime example, I own a Nook Simple Touch; I had it for less than a year. When I recharged the tablet like I usually did, it would recharge. This time, it got stuck on rebooting. I was able to go into the store, the manager saw what the problem was, and he gave me a brand new one as a replacement because my Simple Touch was still under warranty, and it was still a B&amp;N made device. Due to the Samsung partnership, the rules are different. If you have something wrong with your tablet (like I do; I got my tablet five weeks ago, there is dead pixels/material within my tablet; it was verified by an actual NOOK expert in a Barnes and Noble store who told me to call the 1-800-843-2665 which I did...and it did not go over well) concerning hardware/software that cannot be fixed by an in store NOOK expert, you will not be able to exchange your Samsung Tab 4 Nook like you did with your other Nooks that were previously made by B&amp;N. You will have to call the 1-800 number. Even if the B&amp;N Nook expert verified that there was something wrong with your NOOK and sent in an incidental report about it, Samsung customer service offers you to send in your device for a REPAIR. I've done everything to get an exchange due to my legitimate concerns, and it is not happening. Some of you have had great experiences with your Samsung tablets so far. I have not. Just be forewarned if anything goes wrong with your tablet, you may not get an exchange replacement (not a new one as a replacement). If the company doesn't really see anything wrong with your tablet, they could send it back, and nothing gets repaired. Bottom line, B&amp;N has their software on the tablet, but it appears that B&amp;N does not have control over the repair/exchange of the tablet. Samsung does.

Excellent, with a (big) caveat. I purchased one of these and was quite impressed. The display, despite the numbers, is gorgeous. A lot of the people comparing this to the previous NOOK devices seem to be commenting on specs and not actual appearance. It's a very nice little tablet overall. The problem, and it might be a big one, is the inability of the actual B&amp;N library to store ebooks and magazines onto external microSD storage. Many apps can be moved to SD (yes, even on KitKat). Many apps allow storing data on microSD. Unbelievably, the B&amp;N reading apps do NOT, even though the B&amp;N video app does. If you have a large collection of B&amp;N ebook or magazine content, this may be a deal breaker for you. Another annoyance is that, while it will let you read ebooks sideloaded onto a microSD card, those books appear in the library as big, ugly white covers. While the Samsung tablet overall is great, and the new B&amp;N apps are very attractive, they seem to have forgotten a few important details for the most avid readers.

I currently have the HD+ and pretty happy with it.  Camera is a nice feature on the new tablet.  Much smaller than I had anticipated.  My eyes are not as good as the use to be and need the larger screen.  Hoping larger version with more gig comes out.  Great partnership with Samsung.  These should be pretty solid.

I've given up on BN's nook. I've a black Galaxy Tab 4 Nook (8 GB RAM, 16 GB SD card). I now get a message stating &quot;Storage space running out. Some system functions may not work.&quot; I then deleted android programs and nook books and now  I've now got 410 MB of available space on the device memory and 11.94 GB of available space on the SD card and I still don't have enough memory! I called BN tech. support and the bottom line is too bad. Do anyone else have a similar problem on Samsung Nooks? I'm going to try Amazon's Kindle. I don't believe BN has the capability to compete with Amazon in  ebook devices. I tried to stay loyal, but I've had enough. It will be painful re-buying all the ebooks.

I think you guys are going to have trouble selling this device as a reader.  The folks at a local B&amp;N Store said a larger version may come out in the fall and I might consider it.  However, I've been using a Color Nook since 2012, and it's really an excellent reader.  This device has too many pre-loaded Samsung apps.  If this is your permanent product, I'll probably be switching to the Amazon Kindle in the future, because I don't like this one at all.  Tomorrow, I'm going to buy one of the leftover Nook HD+ at Target before they're out of stock so I'll have a decent backup.  I'd rethink this product fairly quickly.

As a B&amp;N employee, many consider me biased but I've had a tablet (Surface, Windows 8) and I've had the previous Nook tablets and frankly, this one SHINES. The color is crisp and bright, the images are well rendered and its a light and thin device. Having never used Android before, I'm a little befuddled by the interface but I suspect I can adjust. All in all, I'm impressed as an employee and as a customer with this new device.

This thing is terrible. I regret buying it. Before anyone accuses  me of not giving it a try, not actually a having used other nooks, etc, let me clear that up. I have two simple touch,  two nook hd, and now two of the tab 4 nooks. The tab 4 isn't terrible  but the nook version is. I have two standard tab 4s and I wish I had purchased all four that way. the non nook versions give me significantly fewer issues. The primary issue at the time of this review is the inability   to put nook data on the SD card. This is a simple fix with an update. (Hint hint) However, until then my nook tab 4s   are constantly full and flash warnings at me about lack of free space. I can't keep my full library on the device. Until they fix it, I suggest buying the cheaper non-nook version and just install the app. It seems to work much better that way. I hope the nook department is reading and gets right on this. It will change my opinion.
