Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Tablet Review
If you're looking for a smaller tablet that won't break the bank, the new Samsung tablet is certainly worth a look.
Samsung recently released the successor to its Galaxy Tab 7.0 and Galaxy tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 ($249.99), amid a flurry of new tablet releases. Solving many of the problems plaguing the earlier models of 7 inch Galaxy Tabs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 brings better hardware and software to the table, shipping with Android's latest operating system, Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It's important to note that this tablet isn't meant to take on the new iPad head-on, but it answers a demand for a different type of consumer.
While the 7 inch screen may not be popular with the older crowd, a common complaint of larger tablets is the heft of a near-10 inch screen and battery making it hard to hold. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 with its smaller profile does not suffer this setback, and is a good tablet to consider if you're likely to use your tablet for more than an hour at a time. If you use the tablet for more than 5 hours in one sitting, however, you're likely to run out of juice. Thankfully, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 takes only about an hour to recharge completely.
If you'd like to use bluetooth headsets or other accessories with it, you're in luck! A wide range of bluetooth devices are supported on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. In everything it does, this tablet gives users what consumers want: more options. Subscribing to a data plan will let you take your media libraries with you anywhere, and enjoy music, movies and books on the go. At home, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 's IR blaster can control your entire home theater much like a universal remote would, making you the ruler of the living room.
With all the tablet's capabilities combined with full access to Google's Play Store, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has the range of apps to make your tablet experience a rewarding one. If you're looking for a smaller tablet that won't break the bank and give you a solid performance, and consolidate control of your media on any device into one small package, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is certainly worth a look.
