I realized today that I had not done a proper Geek Notes in over a week. This is bad news and I want to attempt to get this back as a regular Thursday morning post. Today the topic will finally be the tablet I have had for a little more than a month now. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was a nice surprise birthday gift. I know that initially I wanted the 10.1 but considering I got a tablet for a gift at all was very welcome. This review will be done “Geek Notes style” therefore it will be short and sweet, if you would like an in-depth review I would be more than happy to dig into that upon request.
Let’s get started! First of all you will be able to see the key specs listed below, I do not care much for focusing on specs since many people do not understand what they all mean. Rather than quote tech jargon I will give you a quick performance summary.
I want to begin by saying that this tablet is nice but it is not the best out there. I would not buy this if you want a gaming tablet because even though it can hold its own it is not going to give you as full of an experience as a more powerful tablet can give you. Now that I have that out-of-the-way, which is really the only negative I care to list. Overall I love this tablet! I thought that a smaller tablet would drive me crazy but it is often the opposite. I read comics easily everyday and they especially look nice in Comixology. I also love how nice Netflix, Hulu and YouTube run on it. Unless I am on a slow network I never see any lag.
As far as basic features this is a very Google heavy tablet. Some may not like this but it works out for me since I can sync all of my Gmail accounts, my work email, the Animockery Twitter and Google+ accounts. This makes tracking and interacting with all of my social media stuffs with the flick of a finger. The only down side so far is the handful of Apple only apps I would like to have. One big one is Vine, it is a new item from Twitter but the full app is not available to Android devices yet.
Warranty Terms Parts & Labor – 1 year limited
System Memory (RAM) – 1GB
Storage Capacity – 8GB
Rear/Front Webcam – 3.0MP
Battery Life – Up to 12 hours
Drive Capacity – 8GB
I think that this is a great value. I would buy it again and I plan on getting the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. If you are going to get one of these as a first tablet I have some add-on items I would highly recommend;
- Samsung brand case (the off brands are OK, I got one and wish I would have not)
- Good screen protectors
- A basis stylus
- A good set of ear buds (the built-in speakers are nice but sometimes you don’t want to share you tunes, I prefer Tweaked Audio)
- Handles any video streaming I have thrown at it
- Just big enough to read books and comics
- The compact size makes it more portable
- Forward and rear camera
- Wireless and Bluetooth
- A little too slow for heavy gaming
- Camera is only 3 mega pixels

The decisive factor is not only a mobile phone plans for bad
credit, but all the goods and services. They have done hundreds of
weddings and some are so in the demand that you have to book them a
year or two in advance. Either way, it almost definitely won’t be up for
sale on the day of the announcement, but it won’t be long before we know whether it’s worth waiting to buy one or not.
