Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

Device & Specs

Both devices are quite similar, right down to the special features of each. They both have an IR blaster, they both have bluetooth connectivity, and they both have a microSD card slot for expanded storage. While the newer tablet has a somewhat lower clock speed on its processor, both have dual-core processors that should be able to handle whatever you throw at it. The biggest difference? The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 runs Android 4.0 (albeit with TouchWiz).

Screen

The screen of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is the same size, but better in just about every performance metric, right down to reflectivity and brightness.

Battery

While neither tablet has an impressive battery, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 lags a bit behind the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, possibly due to the difference in screen brightness.

eReader

Both are virtually identical as eReaders, outside of the difference in battery life.

Internet

Both have virtually identical internet and connectivity features, but the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 runs a newer OS, which will remain updated for longer.
