Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Review
4,000 mAh battery inside of its body, it’s effective in providing us close to 1.5 days of extensive usage primarily consisting of web surfing, emailing, and the occasional YouTube video watching.
On the surface, there isn’t a whole lot new to experience on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus that we haven’t seen before – especially when the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 offer the same predictable Honeycomb experience. However, we do like the fact that it sports some upgraded hardware over its predecessor, and an infrared port to provide us some light home theater functionality, which is something that’s rarely offered by most of the tablet crew out there.
Above all, pricing is obviously going to be a key factor in whether or not it’ll attract would be buyers, but when you think about the competition, there are other 10.1” Honeycomb tablets that are priced the same or less than this one. Well, it’s not to say that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a bad option, rather, if you have the money to shell out, it’s definitely something worth picking up thanks to its balanced performance and rich feature set. Alternatively, if you take pride in getting more value for the dollar, and something with a larger screen, you can certainly think about the Asus EeePad Transformer, Acer ICONIA TAB A500, or Toshiba Thrive as other options. The competition is hard when it comes to 7” tablets as well – the Kindle Fire is $200 and the Nook Tablet is $250, and although they have rather lower specs sheets and not as much apps, they are way more affordable.

Probably more like 1-1.5. Check other tablet reviews... PA hasn't been blown away by any of them yet.

The entire review in a sentence:
The only problem being the GT-7.7 is on the horizon and it is 10 times more impressive than this.
It's also the same price as the exact same 7.7 8.9 and 10.1 all three of which offer more value.

Phonearena, can you call with this device? what does the earpiece do?

PA, you used the wrong Galaxy Tab in the Size Comparison on the first page. I think you used the 8.9.
