Samsung video player got some functional changes. After pushing the button in the upper right corner, one gets a large list of options; among options one may see the choice of subtitles or playback speed. On the other hand, the size of the panels is not so convenient, even though being transparent, altogether they occupy half of the screen.

New Message at Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

It is really difficult to find any outstanding decision for the phone functions, thus, here we deal with a common interface for dialing a number or writing a message, and we see an ordinary contact list.

The device has ChatOn client installed to offer better communication possibilities. This is a chat program for two or a group of people and sending of files. Generally speaking, a typical IM-client.

Game Hub at Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Game Hub service got some strange change. Earlier the service gave the access to a big number of Gameloft games, with the possibility to download a free game for the demo period. Now the device has some strange application instead, that just redirects us to Google Play.

World Time Application for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

The program World Time looks really original. It has the 3D globe with different towns and cities on it, thanks to it one can get to know the time in different time zones.

In conclusion, we would like to repeat that there are no surprises for those who are already acquainted with the former Android-based Samsung products. At the same time the company still pursues the policy of providing its devices with the maximum amount of necessary programs from the box.

Conclusion

Tab 2 is quite a successful attempt of Samsung to make a tablet PC with all functions that one nowadays expects from such kind of device. Anyway, the device had all the necessary features that differs it from typical low-price tablets.

The good picture is provided by high-quality PLS display, which doesnt look at all as a compromise when comparing to IPS. The dual core processor is more than enough both for basic and some difficult tasks. Anyway, until the present time producers didnt manage to give enough reasons for usage of the quad-core processor. The 3G module is far from being a novelty, still having that unit one will not depend on Wi-Fi connection.

The tablet design has no any distinctive features; on the other hand its thin body makes the device look attractive. It is just the body assembly and unpresentable material of the back cover that may spoil impression a little bit. It would be much better if Tab had Gorilla Glass cover as well.

Price

The price of the device together with the 3G module is $400. Whether it is a big or a small price one can understand after comparing to the same offer from competitors. We considered a device as a competitor if it had 3G module and a 7-inch screen with resolution of 1024x600 pixels. So, Huawei MediaPad and Acer Iconia Tab A101 can be considered as the ones.

Huawei MediaPad

Huawei MediaPad

Huawei MediaPad now costs $370. Its features were compared to Tab 2. The price difference may excuse possible disadvantages.

Acer Iconia Tab A101

Acer Iconia Tab A101

Acer Iconia Tab A101 costs $350-370. The device has NVIDIA Tegra 2 basis, on the other hand TN+Film matrix is quite an unpleasant surprise as such configuration is absolutely inappropriate for such an expensive tablet PC.

In general, Tab 2 if not the best, still a very good offer in comparison to competitors.

Advantages:

  • High-quality PLS-screen
  • Thin body
  • Small weight
  • 3G-connection
  • Thanks to microSD memory cards the memory volume can be extended
  • Productive hardware
  • Android 4 with TouchWiz interface
  • High-quality back camera

Disadvantages:

  • The screen gets dirty from fingerprints quite soon
  • The back cover may get deflected
  • The system is not optimized in a proper way

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.
