Icon10 Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) Hands on Unboxing and Review




Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 7.0 unboxing and mini review.

Samsung is the famous and largest manufacturer of android smartphone and tablets has recently launched their 2nd generation Tablets as Galaxy Tab 2.
They launched 2 models according to the screen size, one is Galaxy tab 2 10.1 and another is the smaller brother 7.0 .

Unboxing



The box is pretty similar like any Samsung smartphone.



The backside of the box contains all main specs and details.



When I opened the box I have seen the tablet itself at the top, I really disappointed that the tab is naked and without any wrappers.



Accessories are as followed:

1 x Earphone, manual , charger , data cable, a pack of ear buds. There is no Samsung Kies Disc at all. You have to download it before connecting into pc.


Design and Specification






The styling of this device is pretty nice but not so lovely. The curved edge is good and if you compare with any 7 inch tablets in Indian market it wins.



The device is sleek and feels very perfect when you hold it. But it's too much weighted compared to 1st gen, I guessed the tab will be lighter before buying it now it's not really disappointment but I like to see a reduced weighted tab by Samsung.



The backside of the device contains a sticker which indicating the slim slot and a micro sd card slot.

This device is powered by 1 Ghz Dual Core processor,
1 GB ram,
PowerVR SGX540 GPU,
OS : Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich),
PLS Capacitive Touch screen (600x1024 pixels),
Bluetooth 3.0,
Wifi,
2G/3G calling and internet browsing
GPS ,
3.15 rear camera and front vga for video calling ,
16 GB memory and expand upto 32 GB.


Screen and Camera



The camera quality is decent but it comes with fixed focus. The video capturing in720p resolution is good but like my Nokia 701 and N8.







The screen quality and viewing angle so good and watching movies, browsing internet etc.

User interface










After update the 207 MB of data via OTA.
The clock has been changed and with new keyboard layout as well as some tweaks and new widgets.



PROS

1. Dual Core CPU ,

2. PLS screen quality is very good,

3. Smooth 1080p playback ,

4. Slim slot and sd card slot,

5. Upgradable to 4.2.2 Jelly Bean,

6. Build quality

7. In the budget.


CONS

1. Battery backup not so good and back cover cannot be opened,

2. Slightly over weighted tab 346g,

3. Generate little heat from the back after using 45 mins or higher,

4. Lack of HDMI connectivity.

Verdict

The new Galaxy Tab 2 is pretty decent and good for watching video and lite gaming, the plus point is is has calling facility, you can use it like phone.
The ICS is so good, Samsung has tweaked and added some features into Oscar and that is good.

I GAVE SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 2 4/5.

Thanks for reading my article.

Very nice Phablet. I wish they had used better fonts though. Somehow Samsung always uses strange fonts.
