Music & Audio Controls

Once you start listening to music with the Music app, you will be greeted with a few simple controls, namely the play/pause icon, track forward/back, and a scrub bar on the bottom of the screen. Virtually every element on the screen can be interacted with for additional track information and the like, and there are also a few advanced controls like shuffle, repeat, and playlist making.

Oh so slick.

Music & Audio Management

Because the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus uses the Android Honeycomb operating system with the music player app installed, listening to your music library will be a rewarding experience, simply by virtue of the fact that the new music app allows you to store music on Google's servers, and stream your library from anywhere that has WiFi. So, instead of having to load up your tablet's hard drive, all you will have to do is find a reliable source of internet. Cool, huh?

Cover flows are fun to play with.

For the music in your library, you can either sift through it all with a cover flow, or a list format. Both have their merits, but you can also search for a title as well.

Music & Audio Formats

That being said, the Play Store has other music applications that support other file formats and codecs, so if you run into an audio file that isn't natively supported on your device, go exploring in the Play Store for a new codec.

Music & Audio Battery Life

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus managed to last longer than 24 hours of continuous audio playback in our labs, mainly due to the fact that the screen automatically shuts off after a period of inactivity.
