Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) Review
Sipping down on a 4,000 mAh sized battery, we’re impressed with its longevity out of a full charge. Specifically, we’re able to get by at least 3 days with light usage, which mainly consists of web surfing. Meanwhile, with normal usage, it’s able to inch out 1 ½ days before being tapped out entirely.


Conclusion:

Above all, there’s no escaping the love surrounding the $249.99 pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 – it’s just super affordable on any budget! Indeed, it’s $50 more expensive than the Amazon Kindle Fire, but the advantages are seen with its arsenal of cameras and full access to Android’s ecosystem. However, we’re still puzzled to find its performance a little bit on the sluggish side – but at least it’s never the point stagnant. Frankly, it might not obtain the same mass appeal that we find with other big name tablets on the market that are more comprehensive, but heck, for the price, it’s really hard not to like this pint-sized bundle of joy.

Software version of the reviewed unit:
Android Version: 4.0.3
Kernel Version: 3.0.8-292098
Build Number: IML74K.P3113UEALCB
