Pros Perfect Size, great speed, better than average display, Android Jelly Bean, expandable memory. Great for business or gaming. Great reading books, e-zines, e- papers, emails, etc. 8gb internal memory. Expandable memory, (up o 32gb) for media.
Cons Would like to have micro USB instead of proprietary Chg/sync cable.
Samsung installed bloatware. You will have to adjust settings area to disable much of it.
Can't move programs to expandable memory.
Everything above is very minor
Summary For a tablet under $200.00 it is an awesome tablet. Very well made. If you are used to the Android operating system there will be a minor learning curve as it is slightly different on a tablet. Only real negative is the Samsung bloatware and charging cable. I picked up a new extra OEM charging/ sync cable-plug from eBay for under $5.
I guess the bloatware is how they keep the price low. You will need to adjust some settings such as not letting unknown sources download. You can turn it on if you want to install from anything other than Google Play Store. The expandable memory is for storing media. You can't move programs to the expandable memory. The system will use a chunk of the internal memory but 8gb is a lot and should be more than enough for tons of programs. Highly recommend this tablet especially for the price
Pros compact, travels easy, expandable sd slot, google play ap that kindle does not have, docking station and you can buy a keyboard if you wish.
Cons my aps will lock up and I will have to restart it. sound for music is not that good.
Summary great buy for money. lots of pros compared to the cons.
Pros responds well to touch or stylus , pre-loaded apps are cool , but my favorite is the infra - red remote control .it's on the android platform , which has loads of practical apps and cool games.The tegra 2 processor is strong and can handle itself .
Cons wish it had the tegra 3 , other than that , i am pretty optimistic about all aspects of this powerhouse samsung has given us at agreat price!!
Summary Great on the go , easy to hold , operate and become accustomed to its general operation.Great display , graphics and multitasking is a breeze.Very close to , if only barely not , a laptop replacement.Get one and you WONT be dissapointed.Samsung is a leader and an innovator .
Pros Great value, intuitive layout and design, fast
Cons Not certified by Samsung for Flash Player 11. Adobe will not continue FP development beyond v11, but Samsung's pre-installed Video Player app works well.
Summary I had been waiting for someone to make a device like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 before I purchased a tablet. The design, ease-of-use, display, features, etc., are great, the controls are well-located, and the device is as good as, or better than, tablets costing much more.
The 32 GB microSD/SDHC card I use to back up movies and music does a fine job of supplementing the 4 Gb internal storage.
Samsung customer service was great when I contacted them about Flash Player, its Video Player app, and other alternatives. The representative was patient, helpful, knowledgeable, and had backup available when she did not have an answer. Great customer service like that is rare - and valuable.
Pros Expandable Memory via a mini SD card (32 gig max)
Size of Tab
weight of Tab
Sound of the external speakers
Cameras (not the best but good enough)
speed and touch screen are very good
Cons Playing digitally downloaded movies from storage is a serious challenge
Apps can't be stored on SD card
USB cord could be longer (that's minor though)
Summary All in all this is a great tablet for $250. It does most of what I need it to do and does it well. Those that are expecting maximum specs and performance should look to more robust and expensive tablets. For the money this is a sweet device!
