Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review. High-quality Affordable Tablet From The Renowned Manufacturer

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Software

It is not a mystery that the device has Android 4.0 with TouchWiz add-on installed. If you once used one of Samsung devices with installed Android 3.x, Android ICS with TouchWiz of Tab 2 is not going to surprise you. Even more, all the changes first and foremost were done to the devices design and one gets a feeling to be using the improved version of Android 3.x.

The Start Menu offers no screen blocking. The function of blocking the screen wasnt found in any of the device settings including system settings. Is that a peculiarity of the production unit? Possibly. So, on the main screen one can see a range of programs placed in two rows, the upper part has Google search shortcut, indication of desktop number, and switch to the full program list. The left part of the bottom panel has the standard for Android ICS set of virtual buttons: Back, Start Menu, Task Manager and Screenshot.

After pushing the Home button one may see all the possible desktops; delete the old ones and add the new ones. The pop-up panel with a list of programs for quick launch is placed in the bottom part. The list cannot be changed. The device has the tray as well, still it is almost the same as in Android 3..

One can not call the choice of widgets and wallpaper logical. Making a little longer touch on any screen one gets the additions menu and sees options suggested. The list of commands is disappointing as well, for instance one can hardly understand what is meant under the phrase To choose wallpaper from the Main Screen.

The device has surprisingly small number of wallpapers suggested; on the other hand the pictures are extremely attractive. The device has interactive wallpapers as well.

There is quite a big choice of widgets. It is, on the other hand, not very original there are gadgets for all the basic programs.

The list of the programs installed is not small per se, but one is acquainted with it from the previous Samsung devices. On the other hand such a list is more than enough for a common user.

As we have already mentioned there are no many programs that are new or changed. Anyway, lets look through them. Firstly, it is the most powerful office packet Polaris Office.

The tablet has a new version with interface that is totally different from the one of Galaxy S II. Firstly, the menu has a different look. It informs us that the program can support cloud services. The file manager was changed; it became much more convenient and functional. The upper panel gives opportunity to create a new file immediately, add a new button, and change the order of files and search.

The table editor is organized in the same way.

The procedure of creation of slides was improved as well. The settings order became clearer.v

The Pulse program is quite interesting. It is a creative approach to making of some kind of own RSS- feed, moreover its design reminds of a mini-site, not a boring text list.

Moreover feed sets are organized in the form of desktops. For instance, one can place fashion feeds in one of them, and technical feeds in another one. Generally speaking, a true Web 2.0, as it should be.

The calendar got new looks as well. On the other hand it is difficult to name anything outstanding. One may set different tasks for each day, and there is a possibility to synchronize the work of your devices.

Samsung Apps design was improved. The applications are now better organized, still the dark background is not the best choice for the service.

I bought this cearma to take pictures of items and place them on e-bay. My budget was low around a hundred dollars. This fit it and I'm happy with the purchase. I would not use this Camera for wedding photos LOL The Zoom is not very good and it likes to use its flash on everything in automatic mode .. This causes the pictures to be over lit. This Camera is not any better than the cearma on many phones so I only use it too take photos for ebay. If your looking for a cearma too take on trip spend some more money . you wont be happy with this ones performance. Again its not bad very EZ too use but has some complicated menu's that are not user friendly. It works its cheap 3 stars

I was wondering if you ever coeeidnrsd changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Thanks a lot on your post. One more thing is the fact that simply becmiong a photographer contains not merely difficulty within hooking award-winning pictures and also struggles throughout having the greatest digital camera suitable to meet your needs and a lot especially challenges within maintaining the conventional of the camera. This is very genuine as well as clear for anyone photography followers which can be directly into capturing the actual nature’s interesting views – the particular hills, the actual forests, the actual wild or simply the particular ocean. Traveling to these types of fascinating places certainly requires a digicam which could go beyond the actual wild’s challenging environment.
