Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Tablet Review
All things considered, you could do far worse for the money you'd shell out for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
Device & Specs
From a hardware standpoint, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus absolutely trounces the Kindle Fire with more RAM, a better GPU, and full version of Android 3.2 (the Kindle does not). On top of that, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has an IR blaster, so you can use it as a universal remote.
While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has a better resolution than does the Kindle Fire, it cannot compete with the Fire's screen brightness, which allows it to be seen in a wider range of lighting environments.
The Fire's battery impresses here, as it can last quite a while longer than can the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus '.
Because all Kindle devices are also granted access to the lending libraries through Amazon, the Kindle Fire takes this one too, as it is the better eReader.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has full access to the Play Store, while the Kindle Fire has access to only a severely trimmed-down offering by Amazon, with a tiny fraction of the popular apps offered by the Play Store. Stick with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus if you're an app fiend.
