    After a day of use, I went to wake my Tab S8 from sleep. Nothing came up, however. The backlight is definitely on and will turn off with a press of the power button, but I can't get it to do anything else. Even the vibration from it acknowledging that the volume has been turned all the way down and into vibration mode is not working. Perhaps shutting it down would help? It had about 50% when this first happened, and I've had it on for the past 7 or so hours, and it still has not died. Help!

    Welcome to Android Central! It may be an app that is causing the system to glitch, or a problem with the firmware itself. You can typically force a power off by pressing and holding the Power button for about 15-20 seconds. Then wait a few seconds, and press and hold Power again to turn it back on.

    Yeah, I did. After it finally died, it worked just fine after I plugged it in. I wasn't using any form of screen lock so it just would go straight back in to whatever I was using. I haven't had it occur again, and I've been using a password since then just in case that's what was triggering it.

    Glad you like it.
    Think I may get one this weekend.

    £99 here at a good department store chain with 2 year back up, or online.

    Keep my Moto G in my pocket and use my 4gb hotspot allowance on this. Then worry about getting a Note 4 or 5 later.

    I read some reviews and it's very decent spec.

    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad 14" I like, and now Motorola are Lenovo, lol.

    Hi, I'm having a similar issue:
    Please help!
    My sons S8-80 tab touchscreen has become unresponsive.
    I've tried a soft reboot which does nothing.
    A hard reboot doesn't get past the Fastboot Starting screen and just switches off.
    Don't know what else to try!
