Pros The size is just right and its also a phone
Cons has lesser apps than ipad
Summary Even though most of the features of the galaxy tab is at par with that of Apple's Ipad, I 'd have to say that being able to use the galaxy tab as a phone definitely made it more practical to buy rather than an ipad. Having a galaxy tab is like having an iphone and an ipad at the same time; and another great thing about this product is its size. Very portable compared to the ipad, which is always screaming for attention making the owners a target for the robbers. Its just not practical to walk around town with an ipad but with the galaxy tab, life just got easier.
"Great product"on by tadrough1955
Pros Easy to use, vibrant colors, gets me away from the kids!
Cons Accessory availability, Samsung and after market companies should have been prepared for the release.
Summary I enjoy the unit, however I have to treat it like glass until enough after market product gets out for sale.
Pros Great look, feel, weight. Very fast.. unfortunately the touch screen has a major bug
Cons Touch screen freezing/becoming unresponsive on a regular basis
Summary Having read your review and fallen for all the hype surrounding this product, I went out and bought myself one. I don't have a particular need for a tablet computer but I decided to treat myself (and at £500, it's some treat). After a couple of hours playing and getting to grips with it, I started to notice a very irritating problem - at times the touch screen will become completely unresponsive, usually for 5-10 seconds.
Playing simple games for example, as soon as the game becomes intense, almost on cue the touch screen stops responding and you're just sitting there uselessly swiping your finger over it.
Problem with the app you might think? Well no because this has happened continuously and regularly with several different apps and games, including Google Maps. In this case the touch screen will stall and become unresponsive for 5-10 seconds, before force closing the app.
This is a SERIOUS bug, and yet I see no mention of it in this review whatsoever? It's very annoying to see someone endorse a product when it's main feature (the touch screen) clearly has a major in built flaw. I've never had this issue with Google Maps (or other apps) on any of my smart phones or other touch screen devices. I think If you'd given the product a thorough testing you would have noticed this bug the same as I did.
It's extremely disappointing and highly frustrating to buy something on the basis of what you think is a reliable review and then find out you've basically been fleeced for £500 for a product with an obvious and serious bug, which now I can do nothing about.
I'm left with a very frustrating, glitchy, unreliable product in regards to both hardware and/or software that doesn't perform to anywhere near the standard that's suggested here. I would advise anyone else reading this who is thinking of spending their money on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to look elsewhere, or prepare to be disappointed.
"As good as Ipad 2"on by xune7
Cons None at this time
Summary With the same price tag as Ipad 2 , It will be very very hard to make the right call. Coz u can't go wrong either way. Apple does not Compromise, neither did Sumsung. On my own, will go With samsung. The longer it take for us market, the less it will ship. They need to capitalized on ipad shortage and offer this thing Now! We dont know how long we gonaa hold on to this 500 us dollars. With ipad 2 callin.
"Good Product."on by cardensm
Pros Has more PC ability than Ipad2
Cons None, it is a TABLET after all.
Summary If you can not beat them, join them. So Samsung cloned the Ipad and added there own flavoring. Even made it LIGHTER somehow. I have an Ipad 2 and everything that it doesn't have this almost doesn't have with the exception of flash player and other software that makes it more PC like than the IPAD.
