Somehow it would be a shame if we put on offer and wrote about the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet without allowing you to get to its 10-inch older brother. Yes, that is right. Recently, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is on sale, and it is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. More precisely, it could be said that it is a redesign of the old model, with the intention of being thinner than the big competitor iPad 2.
Samsung almost did not allow the 7 and 10-inch tablets to be domesticated on the market and has already hurried them. to their heirs. This is quite clear if you take into account that Samsung has decided to play the card at lower prices, which is significantly lower with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablets (of course, depending on the color, the prices can vary).
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 – design
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 remains loyal to the parent company in terms of design and does not want to take anything from other brands. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is a true representative of Samsung’s design school, and what is characteristic of it is the plastic, which covers the entire body of the tablet, while remaining only 9.7 mm thin.
When one tablet (regardless of who it is) has such a slender body, it means that he has exercised a lot and that it is to be commended. Thanks to that, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is comfortable in the hand, and yet, on the other hand, you don’t have the impression of holding a harmless device, but a device with a rather aggressive design, which is also commendable. Unlike the first generation, the new generation of the Tab “ten” was covered with a final layer of matte silver, while the first generation had a fine white color.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is not much different from its predecessor, except at a much lower price.
A novelty with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablets are the speakers located on the left and right side, ie on the edges of the tablet itself, which is very convenient since the sound is better heard because the hands do not block the speakers when holding the tablet in your hand.
The tablet is very often (almost always) held so firmly in the hand when a video call is made, which is the responsibility of the VGA front camera. Most other buttons and inputs for connections are located on the top of the device (power button, volume, microSD slot, 3.5 mm audio input, and IR port).
At the bottom of the tablet are a microphone and a battery charging port. Speaking of which, the battery is able to withstand some less than 9 hours of operation, which is still slightly less than the main competition (Apple iPad 2, Acer Iconia Tab A510, but many others), which is certainly not a plus, but this device does not should be muddy for some half an hour less work.
The background is reserved for the main camera, the 3.2 megapixel one, which unfortunately has no autofocus or LED flash, which is a flaw, but what is there is.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a PLS LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels.
The real treat of every tablet, even the one called Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is its screen. It is a default 10.1-inch PLS LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. This screen has exactly 149 pixels per inch, which is certainly not a commendable figure, so some “flaws” can be recognized here and there, but to look at the screen from a slightly greater (we would say normal) distance, this “pixel structure” does not presents no problem.
On the other hand, the colors are quite strong, the brightness is good, as well as the angles at which you can watch the content from the screen, which is something that is definitely a plus for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes with a TouchWiz user interface.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 – Advancement or Cheaper Successor?
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 runs on the latest Android operating system, with a distinctive TouchWiz stamp, with minor changes that should not bring any confusion in operation.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, as the successor to the first generation of 10-inch tablets, brings nothing spectacularly new, except for a drastic price reduction. This will by no means calm down the competition, which of course does not fail to take a few dollars off the price of its models, so the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will have a lot of problems to reach customers.
The price is something that can push it, although it is not too small, hand on heart, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is still a tablet to respect, because, with its 1GHz processor, 7,000 mAh battery, 16 GB internal memory, with new software and a large selection of connections, it is a very desirable device, which many of us would like to see in our possession.
