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.
Following a very similar design scheme as the music player, the video player offers a fairly good control interface that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb, and allows you to watch your movies without an overlay blocking your view of anything. If you tap on the screen once your title starts playing, the control overlay will briefly pop up, and allow you to scroll through a scrub bar, play, or pause the video.
Video files are stored on the internal memory of the device, and managed by the gallery app, right next to your images. There are no real special ways to sort them, aside from creating folders while connected to your PC.
While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can only support a limited set of file formats for video, keep in mind that the Play Store has several media players that have a wider array of codecs, so if you want to watch an unsupported video type (like.mkv), you can grab another app like MoboPlayer to handle it.

Included in the stock software for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is the YouTube app, which allows users to browse the vaunted video streaming client for their favorite clips and web shows. You may be interested to know that it's not just.flv file support, but an actual app, developed specifically for tablets to make use of the touchscreen, so the YouTube app has some very cool features like a video gallery.
Video Battery Life
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus managed to play back video continuously for 5 hours and 29 minutes with the backlight cranked, WiFi disabled, and all additional processes terminated. This is fairly poor, especially when you consider the fact that the screen is not that bright to begin with, so squeezing more battery life out of the tablet will be difficult at best.
