"The best tablet for $250....until the Nexus 7 came out."4.0 starson by Concept
Pros: o The 7" size is perfect for traveling with a tablet
o The screen is great
o The speaker is loud for its size
Cons: o The rear camera sucks, but why are you taking pictures with a tablet
o The front camera is terrible but skype works good enough
o Needs a dedicated charging cable and has to be plugged into the Samsung wall charger
Summary: Hands down this is the best $250 I've spend on tech in the last 5 years. I love the size, and it works flawlessly. This was the best tablet anyone could buy for $250 for about 4 months. Better than the kindle fire, Nook, Lenovo ideapad, or any other cheap tablet you could find for less than $350. But now the Nexus 7 came out and I simply can't recommend the GT2 7.0 anymore. For $50 less than the GT2 7.0 you will have a better screen, better processor, better OS support, Jelly Bean 4.1, and a better front camera. Everything else is basically the same and you'll save $50. The only advantage the GT2 7.0 has is the fact that it has a rear camera. But if you're using your tablet to take pics, you need a better camera on your phone. Needless to say, if your budget is $250, get a 16gb Nexus 7 and you won't be sorry you did.
I won't upgrade to a Nexus 7 simply because I'd take a loss on the GT2 7.0 only to buy basically the same product all over again that is only about 25% better than the product I already own. It would be like trading in your 2011 model car on a 2012 just do you can get bluetooth and push button start. Yeah, they are nice to upgrades but not really worth taking a loss on. If someone offered me $250 for my GT2 7.0, I'd take it but it's not going to happen with the Nexus 7 out there.
Anyway, if you already own a GT2 7.0, you have a great little tablet. Use it for a year and then give it to your kid.
