After demonstrating its full power with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablets, Samsung decided to announce itself again, but this time with a new generation of Galaxy Tab 2 computers with the Android platform.
Without much fanfare and noise, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 arrived – a tablet that also has the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 in the family, and both got their names, of course, based on the size of their screens. So, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is there, in our offer, and let’s just say that it has a lot to offer…
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 – fast enough processor and powerful memory…
First of all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 runs on a dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz and 1 GB of RAM, while it is designed for data storage rounded to 8 GB, and what will surely delight all fans of Samsung tablets is the fact that for unlike the Galaxy Tab 7.7, this one has a microSD slot, so the memory can expand up to a great 65GB.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has a pretty good 7-inch screen with great contrast and brightness.
For this model, Samsung opted for a PLS LCD screen with a resolution of 600 × 1024 pixels, which in some respects is similar to those of the Apple iPad and Asus EeePad Transformer Prime models. This screen is characterized by a high level of contrast (as much as 1128: 1, which is among the best results in the field of tablets).
Also, the screen has high brightness, so the content on it is quite clearly recognizable in daylight. Whether you hold the tablet vertically or horizontally, the angles at which it is possible to look at it are quite good, and the loss of image quality is small.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 also has a TouchWizz user interface.
There is a 3 MP camera on the back of the tablet, while it is on the face of the tablet in VGA resolution. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 runs on the Android 4.0 operating system, with Samsung’s already well-known TouchWizz user interface, but in a new version that offers various content (music, electronic newspapers, children’s content).
It could be said that Samsung had a hard time digging through the original Ice Cream Sandwich, all to the joy and happiness of the users. The most important thing is that everything flows smoothly, without major shots.
For Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 net, multimedia and 3D games are no problem.
Surfing the net is fast and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 nicely displays pages in a horizontal position with text that is very clear and legible. In the vertical position, the user will have to work a little to zoom in on the pages. The zoom is done correctly, although sometimes it doesn’t seem to be the most accurate, we assume that it is easy to master over time. Habit is a miracle.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was defined before birth as a device intended for multimedia, so it doesn’t make a question of which format you want to play. The video material is broadcast in 1080p quality, so there should be no major objections. For fans of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 games, can serve as a good basis because 3D gaming is very possible and achievable.
Compactness and a smaller screen contribute to the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 fits perfectly in the hand.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 fits better in the hands and is much easier to use than the first generation of the seven-inch Galaxy Tab, thanks primarily to the compactness of the device itself.
In terms of color, Samsung opted for a matte and glossy gray variant, while the larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 models were available in white or black. You could even say that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is a bit reminiscent of the Galaxy Note, which is certainly not bad.
As for the battery, official data say that it is enough for 30 hours (2G) or 20 hours (3G) of talk time, which is quite understandable considering that its capacity is 4,000 mAh.
When watching a video with the Wi-Fi connection turned on, the battery can last up to about 7 hours, which is probably not the best result, but it is certainly acceptable. The same amount of time is available to the user when the usual things are done on the tablet (emailing, surfing, playing games, etc.). It takes about 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0: Conclusion
Compared to its predecessor, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has, therefore, a MicroSD slot, but perhaps the disadvantage is that it will not be able to charge via a classic USB connection, but only via USB with direct power, and presumably the reason for this a large amount of power that needs to be “pulled” when charging,
However, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 comes with an infrared port which is great, but also with a TV output, so connections to TVs and other devices will be in abundance. All in all, a great thing.
