Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

85% Review Samsung 10.1" Galaxy Tab 2 Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
Little progress. The Galaxy Tab 2 series represents Samsung’s revision to its successful Galaxy Tab family and features models in 7.0 and 10.1 inch sizes based on Android 4.0. Upon review, we found that the revamped devices cannot compete with other current tablets.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is available with 16GB or 32GB of onboard memory and you can add up-to 64GB more using the Micro SDXC card slot at the top of the tablet. Having this memory card slot means it's probably more cost effective to buy the 16GB model now and upgrade storage later. You can also buy a 3G model, which costs around £100 more for than the equivalent Wi-Fi model.

Google Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Google Nexus 10 is an incredibly well built tablet with a bargain, price thanks to the hit Google are prepared to talk in order to attract customers to it's Android Play store. This makes it a bit of an unfair fight from the off, as although the two tablet's RRPs are not a million miles from each other, if Google wasn't subsidising part of the cost there really would be a big gap. So it's a bit of a no-brainer to suggest buying the Nexus 10 if you can afford it.

Source: PC Advisor English
We love the bright screen, SD support and 1080p video capture of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The problem is that the competition has moved on, and £299 is no longer a budget price for a 10 inch tablet. You could do a lot worse than the Tab, but also consider the Asus Transformer series, and the Toshiba AT300 which at only £30 more offers a quad-core processor. We award the Tab three and a half stars.

A year ago we liked the Tab 10.1, and for the second generation the hardware specs remain broadly the same, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a much better operating system. All for £100 cheaper than it was. We love the bright screen, and adding SD support and 1080p video capture are both improvements. The problem is the competition: the Nexus 7 in particular has changed the game for Android tablets, and is a little more than half the price of the Tab (albeit with a smaller screen, half the storage and no front-facing camera). Meanwhile the iPad remains a cut above for £100 more than the Tab 2 10.1

It seems strange to see a new tablet that hasn't changed too much from its predecessor which perhaps best describes the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Having got thicker and heavier, the specs are mostly just the same. If you are after the best Android tablet, there are definitely cheaper alternatives out there and a few of them can be found in the Asus camp.

If you're looking for a bog-standard Android tablet experience then it's worth considering, but you may want to check out the Asus Transformer Pad 300, Toshiba AT200 and Acer Iconia Tab A200, which offer strong competition to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

With Asus’ 32GB Transformer Pad available for £399 complete with quad-core CPU, 8Mp camera and keyboard dock, and the smaller Nexus 7 soon to hit the market for £160, the Galaxy Tab 2 isn’t quite cheap enough to make a compelling case for itself. It’s not a bad device per se, though. Indeed, as little as three months ago I would have rated it more highly. But how much Android tablet you can expect and for how little money is changing with dizzying speed. Yesterday’s good is today’s average, is tomorrow’s also-ran.

The overall computing power and the good built quality (display, audio) are largely sufficient to perform the usual tasks for work – email, calendar, web browsing, video conferencing – and for entertainment – social network apps, video and audio playback, drawing. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a fairly good choice for people who want to save $100 to $175 (32 GB models) on the purchase of a secondary computing device.

This tablet is made for those ladies and gentlemen who want the $100 discount off the lowest price on the newest iPad. Though this tablet is not made specifically to compete with the iPad, and it really wont, you’ll find it to be amongst the best values in the Android world for those of you not looking for the best processor on earth. If you just want to watch movies and browse the web, this may well be your best bet on the market today.

With the addition of a microSD card slot and moving the speakers to the front of the tablet, Samsung has made some nice improvements to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, all while keeping the price below $400 and the battery life really long. Our favorite feature is the ability to use this slate as a smart remote.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) costs too much for the mediocre performance it delivers. The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) is a good deal at $250, offering a host of useful features for its budget price. But with the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 and Apple iPad 2 both in the 10-inch mix, the Galaxy Tab 2 loses out falling short in both performance and app selection. If you have to have a Samsung tablet, go for the 7-inch Tab 2, or hold out for the Galaxy Note 10.1, which is expected later this year. If you need integrated LTE, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 ($699.99, 3.5 stars) is one of the most elegantly designed tablets around, but it's also one of the priciest.
