Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a prequel for Tab 10.1. The company says they have improved the performance offormer tablet by every means. Judging by its performance, we can feel the major difference only in the price.

Design

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a titanium silver case which gives it a very attractive look. Slightly thicker than Tab 1, it weighs 1.28 pounds. The tablet is quite slim like most of the other Samsung products. Nearly 10.1 inches wide, it is slightly hard to use. On the left side we have a micro SD card slot capable of holding up to 32 GB, volume control, power button and IR blaster. The microphone hole and a dock connector are found at the bottom. The speakers are situated on either side.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a 3 megapixel rear camera and a VGA one in the front. The tablet runs with Ice Cream Sandwich OS. While most of the tablets boast about quad-core processors, Galaxy Tab 2 uses a simple 1 GHz dual-core OMAP processor. The display screen has 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution.

Performance of the galaxy tab 2 10.1

The display of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is good, not great. The user feels there are too much green shades and most of the pictures taken using the camera look washed out. The lack of sharpness in the display is a great drawback. The tablet comes equipped with Wi-Fi support, Blue tooth 3.0 and many other features like GPS. The tablet supports a plethora of android apps. The speaker sounds fairly average.

The gaming experience is more or less similar to the Tegra 3 tablets, except for the display quality. The interface is very touch responsive. Swiping, switching between various screens everything is ok, but not blitzkrieg fast. The battery performance is below average. Even with minimal usage, the battery backup lasts only for a few hours.

The download speed of the apps and movies is good and the wi-fi connection is fine. The GUI is quite easy to use. There is no HDMI port. The tablet doubles as a universal remote too. But, its performance is below average. It hasto be placed quite close to the device and pointed perfectly for better control.

Pros

  1. Impressive design, affordable price and Android OS
  2. Plethora of apps, good wi-fi support and nice gaming support

Cons

  1. Overall average performance and very limited battery backup
  2. Very little features to explore
  3. Average processor, speed, display and audio quality

Verdict

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 does not feature any major improvement in the trend. It seems like a very outdated Tablet compared to the latest, quad-core and Tegra era. Of course, most of the features in Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 are improved in this version. But, it comes a bit too late as other competitors have already introduced much better Tablets in the meantime. Opt to buy this tablet only if you are a great fan of its predecessor. Else check the other latest products in Samsung and major brands.
