Comment: It is very good and convenient.
Good: Large clear screen
Bad: Nothing as yet
Comment: I have had the Samsung Galaxy tab for a while now, and I have to say that I am very happy with it. The unit itself feels solid and is good to hold, but is also nice and thin. The screen is crystal clear, and thanks to the front facing speakers, the sound is pretty good, plug a set of headphones in and the sound is much more improved especially for movies or music. thanks to the Android 4.0 platform (Ice Cream Sandwich) there is no end of apps to download. Navigating the tablet is easy, and if you are into your books then your in for a treat as you can download most of the reader including kindle. reaction is fast on the tab and you don't find it hanging, press a tab and its opened instantly. Setting up Email is also simple, and if you find yourself struggling then you can get your email account setting from Google, there is a port to add more memory, and you can add all your contacts on to the tab, with a fair bit of detail such as address birthdays and more. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is great for business or personal use. I have to be honest but I am a fan of this Tablet, if you shop around you can get it at a great deal, but it is worthy of the price, you do get a lot for your money, and if you have any other Samsung items in your home such as a Samsung smart TV or mobile phone then they will communicate with each other. I think for the money this is the best tablet about at the moment, its far better than the Ipad as its not restricted like the Ipad is. I recommend this Tablet to anyone, you wont be disappointed.
Good: GPS , 720p & 1080p video playback is nice and smooth , Battery life is amazing !!!
Bad: If we see the price (270£) is reasonable not a gaming tab but everything else working perfectly
Comment: I am using this tab the last 2 week and its everything is working perfectly i squeeze 3 and half day normal using the tab without charging.So i am so happy with this product i cant wait for the 4.1.2 update thats my last wish for this product.
Good: it has good graphics inter face, i like the 10 inch screen ,im a bid boy u know,so i like big size coz i like to show off
Bad: nothn , if u knw wat u want, i picked it coz its far beta than my iphone s4
Comment: Its simply the best tab2
Good: Design, Speaker, 3G, Phone
Comment: good product :)
Good: GPS ICS
Good: Cheaper and good alternative to iPad
Comment: Whilst it may not have the design flare or percieved build quality of the iPad, or the number of Tablet specific apps (most apps on Play, are simply phone apps that will also run on Tablet) It stands up well.
Certainly the availablity of Flash makes browsing the web a lot less painful than on the iPad. Printing out documents is also headache free (for iPad, you can only use specific printers).
Whilst it's not got the Apple brand/kudos, is that so much of an issue? Personally, I'm quite happy to pay £299 for a tablet, knowing that I can easily increase the storage from 16Gb to over 70Gb (64gb MicroSD card, not that expensive) Not something you can do with the iPad, and do pretty much what I need to do (surf, skype, play,email etc)
Comment: Slim Cheap
Good: the quad core change
Bad: reflective screen
Comment: It can not cost any more$ to make a non reflective screen. When will they learn!?
I love Samsung stuff, the top end anyway.
Comment: Looks promising. I've been putting off buying a tablet for some time now waiting for the One that will suit my needs.
The first of my hopes with this is that it wont need a proprietary cable to recharge. I can't rely on wifi access as I travel around alot or tethering my phone so my second need is a 3G version. Any chance of 4G I wonder?
