Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for Sprint

4 January 2013
  • Summary: Even with its stellar battery life and good gaming performance, this is not a good tablet. I don’t think I’d go so far as to say it’s the worst tablet on the market, but you will certainly notice its shortcomings should you buy this device.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)

9 December 2012
  • Conclusion: With the tablet market so crowded these days, Apple's once commanding position is being eroded by Android tablet manufacturers such as Google, Samsung and Asus. Whilst the iPad is still clearly the biggest seller, the options for those that prefer the Android operating system or perhaps don't have the budget for an iPad are increasing month by month. So for a tablet to create an advantage it must have something that prospective buyers find attractive.
  • Pros: Great quality screen for the price, Cheap, Highly configurable, Great range of apps, Easy to use, MicroSD support
  • Cons: Very poor audio, Only 3MP rear camera, Struggles with some of the more graphically intensive tablet games, Google Play store should better identify tablet optimised apps

Expert Review

16 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is a 10.1" (25.6cm), well made, lightweight tablet computer running the Android operating system (version 4 - or 4.0.3 to be exact - also known as Ice Cream Sandwich or ICS - don't ask me where they come up with the names). The screen is a lovely 1280x800 PLS TFT panel that is bright, accurate and razor sharp. The main processor, the heart of any tablet, is the Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual-core.
  • Pros: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1") tablet works well, it's less expensive than the iPad, there are an enormous number of Android apps available right now, and the Tab 2 is more configurable, customizable and personalize-able than the iPad. Battery life is good and the vast majority of owners should be able to use it all day, on and off, without a battery top-up. Forget about the crappy camera - you won't find anybody sane holding a 10.1" tablet in the air trying to snap...
  • Cons: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is not quite as snappy, responsive or smooth in operation as the rest of the tablets at the top of the heap. The original Tab was a thumb-your-nose nyah-nyah at Apple and the iPad, but the Tab 2 is a contender mainly because it's running Android 4.x. That's not enough to totally kick the iPad in the shins, and Samsung needs to smarten up. Swipe scrolling is smooth enough, taps in most apps are very responsive but not in all apps, and while the...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

15 August 2012
  • Conclusion: This tablet is made for those ladies and gentlemen who want the $100 discount off the lowest price on the newest iPad. Though this tablet is not made specifically to compete with the iPad, and it really wont, you'll find it to be amongst the best values in the Android world for those of you not looking for the best processor on earth. If you just want to watch movies and browse the web, this may well be your best bet on the market today.
