The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes up short in performance, features, and value compared to competing tablets.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was one of the premiere Android Tablet when it's launched in 2011 with respects that at a a very least match with other Android tablets we're doing at a time. Unfortunately the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was like more a pre equal than the full flash hey it was (??) everything equal. Hi. I'm Eric Franklin and today I'll be taking a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The Tab 2 is about slightly heavier than the original. While it was comfortable to hold it is kinda wide making typing a bit difficult if you're trying to hold it at the same time. Also the (bezzel?) isn't completely flash with the outer casing of the tablet creating the slightly annoying edge here. The speakers have been moved to the front of the tablet are larger and very loud, it's still typically average tablet quality sound. Samsung replaced the original 2 megapixel front camera with a VGA 1. The back camera is still 3 megapixel but it no longer has an LED spotlight. On the top edge is the power lock button, volume rocker micro SD port, IRR blaster and a headphone jack. On the bottom edge is a dock connector and microphone pin hold. The (??) run ice cream sandwich with a Dual Core Samsung 1 Gigahertz processor. You'll also get Samsung touch (whiz?) UX interface and look. The (??) pretty responses and apps launch quickly. When scrolling through a long web pages I saw some clipping at the bottom of the screen but it usually clears up once and scroll through ones. The (??) video play fine for the most part but larger TNADP files actually have some trouble playing smoothly. One of those areas were the Quad Core Tegra 3 on other tablets shows its advantage. (??) GP performance remain at the lower end of the scale popping out at about 25 and 33 (range?) per seconds. Well the clearer the screen matches other Samsung PLS screen. The screen does seemed to push green more than the original tab 10.1 did giving images a subtle green tent. Any of your fan of Samsung touch with interface and you're chopping it a bit to get your hands on a 10 inch tablet with IRR blaster, $400 is still pushing it given in the competition. This is still a dual core $400 tablet with 16 gigabytes of built-in storage. The Quad Core is transfer to a pad TFT300 is $20 less with the same storage and $400 get you that tablet with 32 gigabyte storage. With that kind of competition is difficult to see the tattoo 10.1 is anything other than the over price equal that comes to a short performance doesn't exactly push the envelope when it comes to features. For my final word check out my full written review. Once again this is Eric Franklin and this has been a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
