Summary: - While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 may be the upgraded version of their flagship 10-inch tablet device, frankly so little has change to really merit it being an upgrade. The tablet is thicker and heavier than its predecessor with only the advantages of coming with Android 4.0 and an IR...
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.
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.
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 .
Pros: Runs Android OS 4.0, most affordable Samsung 10" tablet.
Cons: Weak price to feature ratio, CPU disappoints.
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.
Excerpt: Samsung is changing its approach to tablets. Rather than compete at the highest end with the iPad or the Transformer Prime , Samsung's aiming for a happy medium: all the features we've come to expect from an Android tablet, without necessarily top-notch performance or specs, for an appealing price.
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.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 offers little to get excited about and provides no compelling reason to choose it over alternatives.
