Samsung Galaxy Tab 620 (P6200) Review
3 February 2014
Excerpt: Tablet or a smartphone? When it came to choosing a high-end, do-it-all mobile gadget, the answer used to be simple, and it remained this way, till tablets came along. Now looking at the way the competition is shaping up, we believe that it’s only going to get a lot more complicated and chaotic. Once we enter February, which is when the whole tech community awaits this year's highly anticipated Mobile World Congress (MWC), we should see the battle heating up.
Excerpt: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is an upgrade to the original Galaxy Tab with a faster dual-core processor, more RAM and the new version of Android OS (Honeycomb). Aside from that important change, rest of the specs are pretty much unchanged and include 3-megapixel camera on the back, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, 16 or 32 GB of built-in storage and a memory card slot.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: The GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus is one of the best, if not the best, tablet on the market to date. For what it lacks in size it makes up in performance. This device proves there is a need for 7" tablets in...
Conclusion: The Galaxy Tab 7 Plus is actually my favorite 7" Android tablet because it's thin, portable and extremely fast. The IR blaster and Peel AV Remote software make for great couch companions, and the tablet has a microSD card slot for expansion. The display isn't much improved from the original Samsung Galaxy Tab , but Samsung will be releasing the Galaxy Tab 7.7 with a higher quality and higher resolution display (of course, it will cost more too!).
Summary: "Samsung's tablets are like fitted suits. There's bound to be a size that fits everyone perfectly." It's not a line I can take credit for (kudos go to an anonymous friend), but I'd be remiss not to mention it. In the time since Samsung launched its first Android tablet, the 7-inch Galaxy Tab , the company has seemingly had a compulsion to release portable devices of every size imaginable: Galaxy Tabs 10.1 , 8.9 , and 7.7 ; Galaxy Players 4.0 and 5.0; the Galaxy S II line...
Pros: Slimmer, sleeker look, Fast dual-core processor, Peel smart remote app has potential
Cons: Screen still has too much glare, Mediocre viewing angles, Better spec'd Tab 7.7 coming soon
Excerpt: Samsung very first tablet came out about 2 years ago. Since then, the Korean company has outed half a dozen other tablets with ranging sizes and form factors (from 5.0, 5.3 to 7.7, 8.9 & 10.1 inches). The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is basically a refresh of the very first model. Check out our full review after the jump.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus review: A game of sequels
17 January 2012
Conclusion: Seven-inch tablets may’ve been dead on arrival after all. We can think of at least a couple that match the description down to the body bag. In hindsight, we should’ve known better about the original Samsung Galaxy Tab. What we thought was the iPad honking its horn as it sped ahead, was actually a flatline beep. But well, that was then. A couple of software versions and scores of Droid slates later, it’s a different story altogether.
Pros: 7.0" 16M-color PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen of WSVGA resolution (1024 x 600 pixels), Weighs 345 g, Exynos chipset: Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor; 1GB of RAM; Mali-400MP GPU, Android 3.2 Honeycomb with TouchWiz UX UI, Quad-band GPRS/EDGE and tri-band 3G with HSPA connectivity (HSDPA, 21 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps), Support for voice calls, texts and MMS, 16/32 GB of built-in memory, 3.2 MP autofocus camera, 2048x1536 pixels, LED flash, geotagging, 2.0 MP front...
Cons: Smallest screen with the lowest resolution in the Samsung tablet lineup, Has a non-replaceable battery, Uses a proprietary 30-pin connector port for charging and connectivity, One of the lowest capacity batteries in the range
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a premium device in the 7-inch market all the while being a niche device in the phone market (the phone-enabled version, that is). It's packed full of nice hardware and you're never really left wanting something that isn't there, although a digitizer pen and a better camera would of course be good. It's portable yet does an excellent job at home where it can function as a remote control.
