my screen stops responding after several swiped but then starts responding again after 5-10 secs goes by and then does it again almost as if clock work. I take it in to a repair store here in town and they tel me theres nothing to fix cause its a processor issue and to think of it as lag. does this sound right to anyone I mean does this really have that problem I thought this 8.0 was a top notch tablet and should be able to hand swiping on things like amazon,facebook etc I mean can the proc truly not handle loading pages this fast?

Re: my 8.0
It definitely is not normal. The Note 8.0 can handle all those things without lag. How is the responsiveness when just swiping the application pages ? If anything it could be the touch screen sensor is out of whack. I am not experienced with a fix for that. Is it under warranty still ?

Re: my 8.0
It's not the case. I've had my Note 8 for about 8 months now and mine has done this since day 1.
I've had the Samsung book cover which I since stopped using, in favor of an OtterBox. In any state the tablet still has the freezing input issue.
It's a fairly common and well documented problem. Some say updating to 4.2.2+ fixed the issue or made it less noticeable, others didn't. But as with my model (the i467 LTE with Telus) there's still no official update, so I'm not counting on ever getting an official fix.
It's very annoying. Also have the battery drain/incorrect battery level issue which basically makes the tablet useless for what I estimate is at least the bottom 20% of its charge level.
I have a love/hate relationship with this device, and unfortunately the issues Samsung and/or Canadian carriers are refusing to release a fix for are making me strongly consider switching back to an iPad.

I have had my Note 8.0 since July of 2013 and since the first day I have been using:
Amazon.com: Exact X-Line TPU Case for SamSung Galaxy Note 8.0 Black: Computers & Accessories
This combo provides adequate protection but if you seek a higher level of protection you could always get this:
