After debloating the stock rom, its performance is pretty good too (I also don't play games on it).
My only complaint is the battery life. Even on low screen brightness the battery drains out pretty fast.
I think the battery is really good compared to the likes of my note 10.1 2014 but what do you expect I guess. If only our device's would last a week without charging! but that's not going to happen any time soon. I get a good 8-10 hours screen on time at 80% brightness. Wouldn't say there's many bad points about this tab apart from touchwiz but that's easy to get rid of. The video playback is poor in all players I've tried expect for bsplayer but that's the same on my note though. So don't know what the problem is there other than Samsung's poor coding. If you need super fast try the lg g pad for that little bit extra money
