"Compact tablet still usable now despite newer models."3.0 starson by m_chan1
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.
