Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Verge Review

It's getting really hard to keep track of Samsung's Galaxy Tab lineup — there's the Galaxy Tab, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 8.9, and now the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. The Galaxy Tab 2 models replace the 10.1 and the 7.0 Plus in the range, and do so without changing much of the hardware or aesthetic of their predecessors.

    This Tablet is a beast, I'll tell you why. I Have Two Wi-Fi Models but they are running two different Android Versions. One Of Them is running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean And The Other one is running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Both of them have minimal lag thanks to the dual core processor. I really like the speaker of The Tablet as they are really loud compared to the Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus. I Think Samsung Has Done a lot for improvements on The Tablets. We'll See Whether Samsung puts more improvements on The GALAXY Tab 3 models when they come out later this month.

    The Tab 2 7.0 is not the latest or greatest 7 incher, but it's definitely competent overall. Compared to the competition, there's always some pros and cons, but overall, it's right up there. I did a recent review some people may find helpful, with more up to date info: http://www.squidoo.com/galaxy-tab-2-7-inch
