Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)
6 November 2013
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.
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.
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.
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?
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 offers little to get excited about and provides no compelling reason to choose it over alternatives.

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
Excerpt: The long-running patent dispute between Apple and Samsung continues to rage on in the courts with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 already amongst the victims (in the EU at least), but that's clearly not stopped Samsung rolling out the tablets with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 next on the conveyor belt.
