Just a quick post to say what happened with my first warranty claim on my Samsung tablet. I bought the tablet from eBay from a reseller so no official receipt as such. I registered the device on line when I got it no bother.. last week it started to take an age to charge. I registered a claim on the website, after a live chat with an advisor they booked me in the next day to drop the tablet off at a repair centre near me. I picked it up 2 days later, fully fixed, no charge. The end . If this is an example of Samsung copying apple, well good for them as it 100% hassle free and seamless..
