"Great device but not an ipad killer"4.0 starson by thebigdond
Pros: Solid construction, very clear screen
Cons: gets unstable at low battery levels. Cell phone contract required.
Summary: First off, I own both the ipad ant the Galaxy Tab. I also have the galaxy S phone that is the exact same as the tablet. I bought the tab because I like the phone so much. Both ipad and galaxy tab have their own place in this market. I use the ipad at home and when we go out with the kids to dinner or to entertain them. I use the galaxy tab in the car as a gps, entertainment system. They dont compete with each other for use, they each have their own job to do. The tab has some quirky behavior at times but I think that will be resolved, they have already updated the firmware since I bought it a couple weeks ago. When the battery gets down around 15 to 20 percent the device starts to get a little unstable. It will stop responding to touch and the side buttons will respond very slowly. The cameras are great. clear and crisp photos from the main camera, slightly grainy photos for the front facing camera. Skype and other programs dont work so well right now but they are working on better intergration. Overall a great device especially for the price, a third of my ipad price. Just think about what you will use it for and buy the right device for your use. No need to argue over ipad or tab, they are both great at what they do.
