Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Tablet Review
Samsung steps up its game, going toe to toe with the best Android products on the market.
Probably one of the best things about this tablet is that it easily goes toe-to-toe with the best Android tablets on the market right now, and does so with an impressively thin device that is slightly less awkward to carry around than its thicker competition. The screen is decent, the processor is the industry standard, and the solid state drive ensures quick performance.
Android 3.1 makes the Galaxy Tab 10.1 a great music and video media center. Along with the litany of options in the Android Market, users of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have access to all their favorite streaming services with a few taps of the finger. You won't be able to export video to a TV with the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but what the Galaxy Tab 10.1 lacks in connectivity, it makes up for in a sleek user interface. Email and web browsing with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is very easy to do, and onboard flash support makes it a more complete experience than what you'd get with an iPad or iPad 2.
The screen of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a good resolution, but a weak range of color, high reflectivity, and low peak brightness might be enough to give consumers pause. Should you want to take this tablet outside into the sunlight, it will be very difficult to see the screen well at all.
If you're looking for a slim tablet with a huge screen and the power to rival an iPad for less, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is among the best you can find currently on the market. It's not perfect, but we feel that the shortcomings are present in most of the tablets out there, so they really shouldn't be much of a difference-maker for consumers.
