Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for Sprint

Pocketables
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)

CNET
17 September 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes up short in performance, features, and value compared with competing tablets.
  • Pros: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a well-designed tablet with powerful speakers, a responsive screen, and comes with Android 4.0 installed.
  • Cons: At $400, the tablet is overpriced compared with more-powerful competing tablets that offer better features for around the same price. The tablet's dual-core CPU has trouble running large 1080p movies smoothly, and its screen color accuracy isn't as high as on the previous Tab 10.1.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)

PC Magazine
30 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) is the same flagship tablet Samsung released a year ago, but this time around it has the latest version of Android and a lower price tag. With mediocre performance and aging components, there are better alternatives.
  • Pros: More affordable than its predecessor. Ships with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Adds a microSD slot. Sharp, bright screen.
  • Cons: Aging components. Mediocre battery life. Performance not up to competition.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

MobileTechReview.com
1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 isn't going to trounce your first generation Galaxy Tab 10.1 . It's not here to compete with Tegra 3 quad core tablets like the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 , Acer Iconia Tab A510 and Toshiba Excite 10 . Rather, like the 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 , it's Samsung's budget offering for those who want to get into a name brand tablet without breaking the bank.
  • Pros: Runs Android OS 4.0, most affordable Samsung 10" tablet.
  • Cons: Weak price to feature ratio, CPU disappoints.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

Digitaltrends
16 May 2012
  • Excerpt: In the last year, Samsung has released more tablets than you can shake a stick at . So many, in fact, that it has run out of sensible ways to name them all, leaving us with the new “Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.” No it’s not the second Galaxy Tab, and it won’t even be the only 10.1-inch Android tablet from Samsung this year. Pretty soon we’ll have the Galaxy Note 10.1 to contend with as well. Strange name aside though, is the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 worth your time?
  • Pros: Runs Android 4.0, Front-facing speakers, Solid construction, microSD card slot
  • Cons: $400 price is a bit high, Poor front and back cameras, Larger than last year's Galaxy Tab 10.1

Samsung's latest comes with a software upgrade and a price downgrade

theverge.com
13 May 2012
  • Summary: Samsung does a number of things right with the Galaxy Tab 2 – the pricing makes more sense, and most of the sacrifices Samsung made to hit that number are ones I'm willing to accept (though I'd love to have that AMOLED display). Android 4.0 is a huge improvement, too, even though its tablet app ecosystem isn't up to par yet. There's also some nice tweaks in TouchWiz, and Peel's excellent universal remote capabilities are definitely worth paying for.
  • Pros: Nice-looking design, Runs Android 4.0, Affordable at $399.99, Neat universal remote functionality
  • Cons: Glitchy performance, Android tablet app ecosystem is weak, Poor camera

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 offers little to get excited about and provides no compelling reason to choose it over alternatives.

Good Gear Guide.au
8 August 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 appears to be a needless upgrade. It has the same sized screen with the same resolution as its predecessor and adds no significant new features aside from a microSD card slot and updated Android software. At the end of the day the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is sluggish, overpriced and ultimately offers nothing compelling enough to consider it over rival tablets.
  • Pros: Light weight and solid build, microSD card slot, 3G model available
  • Cons: Sluggish performance, Mediocre cameras, Expensive

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

THE INQUIRER
6 August 2012
  • Conclusion: For £250, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a decent tablet for those looking for an affordable Android device. There's a decent screen, it has intuitive software, and although it's not the nippiest tablet available on the market, this shouldn't be a problem for the average consumer.
  • Pros: Decent screen, intuitive Android 4.0 ICS operating system.
  • Cons: Device proved laggy, feels cheap., Awful camera, but who takes photos with a tablet anyway?
