Pros Size, ease of use, available aps, speed and ease of connecting WIFI.
Cons It won't replace the PC, but great for on the go to watch videos, play a game, keep track of schedules, Skype, etc.
Summary My 9 year old bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 with 16 GB and WIFI and it has been perfect. It's extremely easy to use and has a wide range of available uses. It's a great size for on the go. It's great for watching videos or listening to music in the car. My older 2 boys have IPOD touches and I'd buy one of these without question before I'd buy another Touch. It does everything the Touch does and seemingly more as the screen is larger. It's very responsive and we've had no issues with anything, but in particular no issues with crashing, freezing aps, or connectivity. I'd recommend this to family or friend. For the price in the small tablet range, you will not be disappointed with this tablet!

Cons Nothing that I can think of so far
Summary This tablet is wonderful because of the size. I've tried working with the iPad but I just don't like iOS and 10" screen size. The Android software on here in wonderful. I've had this tablet for a few months and it hasn't frozen on me yet either...I had the iPad for 1 week and it froze 8 times in 7 days which was frustrating. The 7" screen size is wonderful because it's not too big and not too small. If you have a Mifi it gets even better because you can use this tablet on the go (hooking up to the Mifi). Battery life lasts roughly 12 hours. I charge it every 3 days or so unless it needs a charge.
Overall: Wonderful 7" tablet, doesn't freeze up like the iPad did and the battery life is wonderful!
Pros - Compact size
- Relatively faster than iPad/iPad 2
- Screen resolution is almost the same as iPad (2) but dpi is more hence it's sharper and easier on the eyes.
- Expandable optional storage up to 64Gb via MicroSD card.
Cons - Android OS is very primitive
- Apps are NOT User Friendly compared to Apple iPad's apps which you must FIND to use on tablet!
- Samsung's POOR reputation in customer service/tech support
- Delayed released of Ice Cream Sandwich OS for Android!
Summary It's hard to go from Apple's iOS since many of the functions... rather, the overall design is to make life Easy for the user.
The same can NOT be said about the Android's OS where users must LEARN how to do things themselves which could take several steps compared to iOS.
Tablets are generally best for online viewing and emailing. Anything else like working on a letter or spreadsheet is a bonus for those that can do it.
This is better than the newer Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" since the newer version, despite having almost all the specs as the 7 Plus, includes a slightly slower processor and downgraded cameras. Once the 7 Plus model gets ICS, this model is expected to BEAT the Tab 2 7" in performance! The price of the 7 Plus has dropped to Below $250 but it's hard to find this model anymore since it's no longer sold.
Pros Fast! Compact size, lightweight & comfortable to hold, easy set-up, love the micro SD slot
Cons Video resolution is not the sharpest
Summary After 3 months with an iPad 2, I gave it to my daughter because I could not handle the weight, it was too unwieldy. I bought the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Plus in January. I have an Android phone (also Samsung) so I found this tablet simple and quick to set up.
It handles my 150-200 daily work emails effortlessly; I don't use the browser much but have had no problems with it. I am constantly finding newer/better ways to use the tablet. This month it's Dropbox; I love being able to write/edit on my desktop or laptop computer and then via Dropbox I have everything at my fingertips when I'm on the go with my tablet. Its lightweight portability is so much easier on my arthritis than lugging the weight of my MacBook Pro, and it's doing everything I need when away from home. It almost always finds WiFi wherever I am, though I do carry a Verizon MiFi in my purse, so I am connected everywhere I go.
Battery life isn't too bad and I've found ways to improve it by using Watchdog and managing my settings, no auto-updates, etc. It's great as a Kindle reader; it has become my sole news source with the half dozen different news apps I read daily; it has improved my ability to keep up with the trade publications I never have time to read at my desk; it's great for meetings where I want to take notes -- whether by writing, typing, or audio; and it's perfect for Netflix when I'm laying in bed before sleep.
I'm not labeling the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus as the best tablet on the market. To be honest, I loved the iPad 2. But the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a better fit for my needs, and I'm happier with it after 6 months than when I first bought it. If you're considering a compact tablet and this one has the features you need, you'll be very happy with it.
Pros All features...!!!
Cons Nothing noticed...!!!
Summary I bought Tab 7 (i.e. P6200) in India, n I simply love it...!!
I just feel, the camera could hv been of higher MP....!!! But, doesnt matter...!!! Simply Loving it...!!!
