Overall I might be pleased with this tablet if the battery wasn't so awful. I have to charge it twice a day now. We bought it in June of 2013, it is now March of 2014. The battery is steadily going downhill which I can understand if the tablet were 3 years old but it is relatively new. I will never buy a tablet from Samsung again for this reason.
A tablet battery MUST have a long running time, otherwise you might as well have a laptop or desktop and be anchored to one spot all day long. Very disappointed with this purchase.
I got this last year for Christmas and I can't even use it anymore because the charger just stopped working for no reason
I mainly use this tablet for browsing documents/webpages and reading textbooks on at school. I think it is perfect for this reason. I do not recommend this tablet for taking notes as it tend to lag quite a bit, but other than that I have had ZERO problems with this tablet. Definitely got what I paid for.
best tablet I ever had...
You couldn't ask for much more in a tablet
Very happy with the tablet. It is fast and battery life is pretty good. Screen is clear and easy to read. Downloading is good as well. I think the critics must have been unlucky with their models.
Good day to every one.Today I want to review my Samsung Galaxy Tab,10.1 ,16 GB.I like this Tab.I bought this tab for my home business and now am so happy I,I make a good choice.I used this Tab while being mobile for business.It has a great design ,quality screen and battery life.I can use this Tab for about 5 hours.The tablet is light,attractive.I also play game,surf the internet having peace of mind.I also read my e book with peace including my best magazine.I recommend every one to buy this product.Is affordable and of great value.Chatting on Facebook have been so easy with you Samsung Galaxy.
This is a great tablet , great value, infact I bought 2 and would highly recommend it.
Really happy with the tablet for the amount of money I have spent. I got this for my mother as a gift.
The only thing that's looking average is the front camera.
I bought this tablet on November 16th once I used it its bad. battery life runs out fast, once I touch the thing that I want to open it open something else, it's very slow, when I swipe something it give u a delay for some games and app, bad graphic when playing some games and app.
Don't get this tablet it will make u disappointed if u buy it.
First experience with android, once used to I like it
Bought this tablet on best buy's one day sale event. Getting straight to the point, performance wise it's so so slow...when scrolling between home screens u don't notice much difference but scrolling through your calendar events for example, u can clearly notice the performance hiccups.
I bought it only because the price seemed to be right, and based on others reviews, the battery life seemed to be good. Another reason was the in-built IR blaster, which BTW worked perfect even with my Panasonic TV and Yamaha AV receiver.
Anyways, I'm returning it today to get something better, probably a tab with Tegra 3 quad core processor at least.
Since its your first time getting a tablet ,you might think you're getting the tablets that you use when your sick. These tablets are like computers but flat ,medium size and portable.Tablets are like computers,phones and cameras all in one device. Tablets were made by samsung. It is very good to have because they are smaller than your computer or laptop ,there portable and you can also call people on it.
When you get the tablet ,the tablet is going to be in styrofoam in a small box. The tablet comes with a charger. I recommend a case because the tablet is fragile. It has good graphics ,takes good pictures and its small enough to fit in your handbag. Tablets come in only black and white. You can do almost anything on the tablet.
The tablets may have issues like not connecting not the wifi and freezes up a lot. Make sure you are aware of the stores you get your product from. The value of having a tablet is that it is combined with a phone, computer and camera.
Tablets last for a long while , depending on if you take care of it. Tablets are very good to have. I recommend everyone getting a tablet because you don’t have to carry your phone, camera or laptop.
Therefore, you should get your Samsung Galaxy tablet today. You might have a few problems with it but you will love the tablet for the rest of your life. I hope you get your amazing combined device today.
The front camera quality is very poor.
I just bought this tab and it was my first one ever. I was surpized to find that it came with android 4.1.1 and not 4.0 as indicated. That is a great upgrade. The speed is as fast as my smart phone that has a faster prossesor. Also great for using as a tv remote. Try it and see.
I bought this tablet for my boyfriend on our anniversary. He loved it a lot. Easy to use.
I've used a variety of handheld devices over the years including Samsung's first tablet the XP powered UMPC. The Galaxy Tab is in a different league. It's smooth and powerful with good battery life. A quality product.
Found it easy to use, great portability, good value. Would highly recommend this product.
Easy to use- great screen-the more I use it the more I want to
Very good product. I was surprised with its performance.
Easy to use. Great product. Learning more every day as this was my first time using the internet would recomend this to anyone wanting to learn how.
I gave this amazing item to my wife for Christmas, and what a good idea it's been! Alot smaller and lighter than her laptop, it does all the same things, making portable computing very do-able! She enjoys it and is glad I opted for a tablet instead of an e-reader (my original plan). I would reccomend this particular tablet well ahead of anything out there, easy to use, dependable, and light and stylish too! We looked at non-android tablets, but in the end Samsung and Android won out!
Easy to use.
The performance is not as i expected. Screen resolution is good enough if you're not a big fan of 'Retina Display'. Overall, satisfactory product.
the screen quality is good. size is good, battery life is ok. Processor is relative to other Samsung android slow, but good bang if the buck. and the android operating system rocks.
I got this tablet for Christmas and I love it. It's light enough to carry in my purse so I take it everywhere. The price is excellent for what you get. I would recommend this tablet over others because of the great quality and the price can't be beat.
i like it. although it's userfriendly.
i love it, I love Samsung products. The tablet has a long battery life, I download e-books from the library, surf the internet, read e-mail, play games. I have only had it less than a month, I haven't had the time to explore the rest of my options. There is the reading store and the apps store. I like that when I turn it on I get the current weather and forecast for the next few days, time and date. I'm happy I purchased this product.
Just bought one last week, I love the style, it is so easy to use, although its a little bit dissappointing that I cant use flashplayer here, (dont know what to use instead) that doesnt let me view some of the websites...but all in all I'm satisfied!
Love it. The only issues I personally have can be solved with the accessories. Like connecting other devices or storage, keypads, and cases. I have the Samsung s2 phone and now the 10.1 galaxy tablet. I am a true fan of Samsung. I haven't had to touch an actual laptop or desktop computer in months now. I can do absolutely everything with my tab or phone.
Great performance runs like a beaut battery is long feels great in your hands quick
Fantastic tablet at good price.
I have had this tablet for over 3 months. It's my first tablet and I am thrilled with it! I tried out a lot of tablets before making my decision. I feel this one was the best deal for the money and the quality and user interface is top notch. My next TV will be a Samsung based on this purchase. I have movies, music, games, and books on this tablet and I now use it more than any other computer in the house. It's so easy to carry around and take when I'm on-the-go. I love it!
Love my new tablet except for the fact it no longer comes with Adobe and as of yet I haven't figured out how to get around that. Unable to play games on Facebook without it.
Bought this tablet on sale, what a great deal. Battery life is ridiculous. Can stay on standby for days. Nice design, light and thin. Love the added memory slot. I did find a little lag when rotating between portrait and landscape, could be all the games I downloaded for my daughter. The Peel app is good, nice little tool to show off with...would definitely recommend it.
I bought this tablet yesterday and it's amazing! No complaints for me it does everything I need itfor!
I bought the same unit back in Sept 02 and noticed the lack for the adobe flash player support as well, look for the dot apk file from google. I've download both adobe_flash_player_22.214.171.124.apk and honeycomb_install_flash_player 10.2.155.67.apk and one of those files worked for me. The same file would work for the Android phones with 4.xx OS.
Adobe recently stopped supporting a number of Android mobile devices. Please research this before buying this product if you care about having Flash capability. I don't understand this, as many websites continue to be flash based and not everyone has moved or is moving to HTML5. I tried downloading a flash player but it was spotty and didn't work on all websites. The other thing that really annoyed me is that the AllShare play and Peel remote apps don't work with my Samsung Smart TV. It's possible this is a TV issue but either way it doesn't speak well of Samsung. Screen and battery are nice and browsing was fast, but I'm returning this one.
I bought this yesterday... I was sick if the bulky laptop ,, which didnt hold a charge as long as this does (14hours) was easy to set up
I did buy a bluetooth keyboard to go with it makes it easier.. but all in all very happy so far with this unit
At first I bought Acer Iconia, but after returned it and changed to this one. Acer Iconia had a problem in connection with my Bell wireless router. This one was connected smoothly. The screen is better. Some applications had problem with Iconia, but run without any problem here. It is lighter, and the sound is a little bit better than Iconia. The response to touch is also smoother. The only this I miss is that Iconia had a USB port, but galaxy tab has only connector port. Of course I could connect with the PC using connector cable because the other side is USB, but still I miss the USB port. when I watch the movies, some of the high resolution MKV or AVI files are not very smooth, but I think that's the limit of the CPU. I coulnd't expect super laptop here. For me, I won't buy Ipad for the work, I prefer galaxy tab but I might buy ipad mini as a toy.
Purchased this Tablet so far has lived up to my expectations then some, great for emails, Skype and surfing the net which is 90% of what I use it for also works great with Dropbox!
I'm defiantly sticking to apple. All we use is apple, I thought I would try something different because it was cheaper. It wasn't a good choice. I returned it after a few days. It was very edgy and the adobe sucked. You get what you pay for.
I bought this tablet two weeks ago and so far... so good. It has all the applications I need to run it and battery life is really awesome. It is fast and easy to handle. I would recommend to acquire this tablet rather other more expensive that provides the same features
Very good tablet and pricing . The applications of i pad are better than of Google ... This is the only deference between the two tablets.
i have reviewd atleast 3 main tabs before deciding on this one and i have to admit that this is the best tab. It does everything i need. People were saying its not the fastest bcoz of dual core processor but i did not see any lag infact brwosing experience is much better on this than on asus. Asus new tablet sucked on that. Even screen quality wasnt that great. And more expensive. I would recommend this to anyone looking for nice android tab.
Met all my expectations. Battery life is great. Does everything I need it to do plus some!.
I bought the galaxy tab 2 for school this September so I would have a more light weight and compact device to carry around but that would still let me go through lecture slides, access the web and work on assignments.
I've had my tab a week now and it meets all my expectations. Great screen quality, very good touch sensitivity, easy to use, great battery life. After using it constantly for nearly 2days it still wasn't dead.
My only recommendations for students would be to get a keyboard to make working on assignments easier and a USB otg adaptor.
The galaxy tab is great, iv'e had one for a week or so, and i'm loving it. Very vibrant colors on the screen, and all the apps are great, the galaxy tab is great for movies, like HD quality, overall great tablet for the price, i'd say better than the ipad 2
I bought the iPad 3 and decided to bring it back for it felt like a larger iphone that i already owned. I decided to give the galaxy2 a try and with the return policy knew i could bring it back and grit another ipad 3 if i didn't like it. I have been using it now for almost a week and wow!! Much more engaging, smooth scrolling, excellent battery life, good browser with flash, I'm impressed. NOT TAKING THIS BACK!!! Sorry apple. They got me on this one. Did I mention the price? Again, WOW.
I bought Samsung Galaxy Tab2 couple of days ago. There are problems with Skype, shows only half image. I checked online and this is common problem. The device hangs during internet browsing. Camera quality is not satisfying. Cannot be compared to IPAD3. I tried IPAD3 before and the device is way better in all perspectives.
