With the built-in 4000 mAh battery on board, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) was able to last us 2-3 days with mixed usage before requiring a charge. But for heavy users, a nightly charge would be required. Just keep in mind it uses a 30-pin cable instead of a standard microUSB cable, so if you charge from multiple locations, you’ll need to purchase extra cables.
Overall, for $350 the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) from Verizon is a good quality tablet that offers the extra ability of using the carrier’s 3G/4G data network, instead of just being limited to Wi-Fi. The tablet has plenty of power under the hood with its 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor that runs Android ICS and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI without a hitch, but we do wish the display was higher resolution so text and images would look sharper, especially when viewing web pages. It is a good value if you must have the built-in 4G, but if not, we would rather recommend the Nexus 7.
