Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE Review

0. phoneArena posted on 12 Mar 2012, 10:50

Spanning a wide array of established tablets that cover nearly every footprint size imaginable, Samsung is pushing forward yet again with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE. Naturally, if the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is simply too diminutive for your taste, and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 being too wholesome, then the Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE would undoubtedly be the snug fit. Although it bears many of the specs we’d expect out of a contemporary tablet, it’s able to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack thanks to the 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display it’s flaunting – though, it’s going to need more than shiny luster to stand tall amongst the heavy hitters in the industry.

It's "sluggish" because of Honeycomb regardless of Exynos inside it.

It's really not that bad. Initial action on the ui may start sluggish but once it's moving, it's pretty smooth.

Can't wait for ICS

The day I went to get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Verizon is the day this came out. And because this came out Verizon had send all the 10.1s back to their distribution center because it's been labeled as end of life. So I had 4 tablets to choose from the Droid Xyboard 10.1 and 8.9, an iPad and this POS.

So I played with this, and it is no where near worth the $500 price tag. The screen feels smaller than the very first Galaxy Tab 7 inch. It is incredibly slow and sluggish even when swiping between different screens, even after a shut down and restart. The Xyboards were whomping this thing into the pavement in performance.

So for $30 extra I got the Xyboard 10.1.

If they put a $200 price tag on this piece of junk, it would be worth it then.

This is a little sluggish considering the hardware. Ice Cream Sandwich needs to be on the Galaxy Tab's to show its true potential.

Why do they always mention sluggish performance with a live wallpaper on? It's true of every Android device and competing devices don't even have the option of a live wallpaper, so it seems moot.

The price point is kind of retarded, given you can get the new iPad for the same price without a contract and no data contract. Why do they keep doing this to Android devices?
