Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Review
19 July 2012
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is a fantastic device. It hits the sweet spot between the budget tablets and the iPad. It has features and specifications that are value for money, and it is an better overall performer than the Sony Tablet S and the Motorola Xoom. The only disappointment comes with the display, which could have had a better resolution and the fact that the Google Play store isn't well populated with tablet specific apps. If you are in the market to spend Rs.
Pros: Overall great experience, TouchWiz is a good skin, Expandable memory, Dual-core processor, Good build
Cons: Bad viewing angles, Too big to be used as a phone, No plug and transfer feature for Mac
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 remains one of the better tablets out there. It looks good, and offers great performance. For those looking for an iPad-alternative, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes well recommended.
Summary: Despite that, however, we love the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It's a genuine rival for the Apple iPad 2, proving thinner, lighter and with a screen that's even better. There's still a more impressive choice of applications available for the iPad 2, and devices like the Eee Pad Transformer are more capable overall, but the Tab 10.1 is still more than worth a look.
Conclusion: The Wi-Fi–only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the thinnest Honeycomb tablet available, and it's very capable, but its Touchwiz UI means Android updates are in doubt.
Pros: The thinnest tablet currently available. Excellent 10.1-inch HD screen. Honeycomb 3.1 brings improved multitasking, Flash support, and a higher-quality user experience. Comes with earbuds—a rarity for a tablet.
Cons: TouchWiz UI means update delays for future Android versions. App selection is weak. Even with a strong Wi-Fi signal, online video playback sputtered in our tests.
Excerpt: The Good Excellent Android 3.1 experience Solid hardware Extremely fast Internet via LTE Attractive display The Bad Late to get TouchWiz, Android 3.2 Expensive standalone LTE plans Several months ago we took a close look at the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which represents Samsung's answer to the iPad 2. The device offered some of the best features among Android-based tablets, but without any particularly stellar capabilities compared to Apple's alternative.
Pros: Excellent Android 3.1 experience, Solid hardware, Extremely fast Internet via LTE, Attractive display
Cons: Late to get TouchWiz, Android 3.2, Expensive standalone LTE plans
Conclusion: The screen on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is neither Super AMOLED Plus like Samsung’s high-end phones or an IPS display like the ASUS Transformer or the iPad. Yet, it looks pretty amazing. In fact, I liked it more than the ASUS Transformer with colors appearing a lot more vibrant and screen angles as wide as the best tablets.
Conclusion: At first glance, there’s no denying that people are going to be enthralled by the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 – even more when they see that it’s the thinnest and lightest tablet on the market. However, once those feelings soak in and disperse over time, they’ll soon find themselves at a standstill questioning some of its omissions.
Pros: Thinnest & lightest 10” tablet on the market, One of the best displays on a tablet so far, Shoots sharp looking 720p videos
Cons: Plastic construction, No microSD card slot & microHDMI port
