Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) Review
Connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot that’s approximately 30 feet away, we do notice some instances of fluctuation during our testing, but it never once lost the connection entirely.

As we gloat about the tablet’s downgraded status, the one bright spot shining proudly is the exceptional battery life we’re able to get out of its 7,000 mAh battery. Charging it up fully, it’s able to provide us two whole days of normal usage, which should also be effective to handle even the most demanding users out there.


Conclusion:


Reminiscing about the experience we had with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from last year, we’re a bit saddened in a way that this successor is undeniably lacking the same level of love and attraction. Compared to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) doesn’t innovate in any way with its ho-hum specs sheets, but then again, Sammy has opted to make this line as its affordable offering – though, at $50 less ($450), it’s not particularly deemed as something super affordable compared to other thing. Instead, if you prefer to save even more money, without compromising features, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) is a better buy at $250. Overall, we can honestly say that this is a step backwards in the wrong direction, as it seemingly doesn’t have enough of the goods to compete viably in this market.
