Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus review: A game of sequels - read the full textApple gave the world the tablet. Samsung gave the world a choice. Itís not as simple of course as narrowing it down to an iPad vs. a Galaxy Tab. Nearly every phone maker out there has a tablet to offer. But the fact is that whatever size you want and whatever screen you like - Samsung most likely have it...

Personally i am not a fan of samsung and i never even plan to buy any samsung device, but i was searching for a fast and handy tablet and i thought to give a try to samsung galaxy tab 7.0 plus and now i am not giving it back. I dont use facebook at all and for my use i found this a great device to use. Its battery is great, screen is awesome, so thin tablet that it easily fits in my pocket, great combination of ram and proc for an ideal speed, good camera. I recommend this device to everyone who wants a tablet for business use.

But since it'll be around 4 years before the battery starts to noticeably decay it doesn't make sense having the battery replaced then since you can use the money to save up and buy a better tablet.

It is said that the battery of the device is nonreplaceable. Does that mean that the device has to be discarted after the existing battery has exhausted? Any suggestion on this?

Bought one as a Christmas gift for myself last year. I was originally choosing between an iPad 2 and this but settled for the smaller Galaxy Tab 7+ (32GB 3G + WIFI version) since i needed something more portable to complement my laptop during my frequent business trips.

Been using it mostly as an ebook/pdf reader, for checking/sending emails, reviewing powerpoint presentations, and video conferencing with my business partners around the world (the 3G function really helped me a lot in this situation). I can squeeze around 12 hours of moderate productivity work from the device but only about 7-8 hours if i use 3G frequently. Overall, I'm really satisfied with its performance.

> In reply to Luke @ 2012-01-19 14:53 from M8T2 - click to read a0a0a0a0a0a0 This review is from: Samsung have poeducrd a really svelte tablet in the shape of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Hardware: While the original' 7 tablet underwhelmed in looks and felt sluggish the 10.1 is a comparative work of art. This thing is lightweight, curved in all the right places and has a fantastic glossy screen. Battery life is excellent Using it on an 11 hour flight recently I watched 6 hours of video, listened to audio books for most of the other 5 hours, and still landed with 34% charge. The 10.1 has front and rear facing cameras and video chat is supported by Google Talk and (I think) Skype, and the (optional extra) USB adaptor supports external storage and other USB peripherals cameras, keyboards, mice, game controllers On the down side there is no SD Card slot on the Wifi-only model and the USB connection requires an Apple-like non-standard cable. Plugging the tablet into a computer will also not charge the unit you must use Samsung's Galaxy Tab charger (which supplies 2.2A instead of USB's maximum 0.5A). Software: I got my Galaxy Tab 10.1 (32Gb, WiFi only) at Google I/O in May. Back then it came with Honeycomb 3.0 which felt a bit rough around the edges but it has since received version 3.1 and those rough edges have disappeared. More importantly, the fact that Samsung have shipped an over the air release so quickly shows that they are committed to keeping the software up-to-date. Honeycomb (3.1) runs really well on this hardware, feeling responsive to the touch. All my favourite Android applications work well Angry Birds, Facebook, Google+, TweetDeck, iPlayer If you are a Mac owner then Samsung have dropped the ball a little, their custom file sync software not being up to scratch It only works if your account has administrator rights. However I've been using File Expert on all my Android devices for some time now as they allow me to sync wirelessly, either by choosing remote files on the Galaxy Tab, or by pushing files from my laptop. I'd like to give this tablet five stars because I'm really enjoying using it. However the gripes over file sync and the non-standard USB connection prevent me from giving five to something that is, in every other way, a really good experience. I originally posted a review against a grey import' listing. As this listing has been discontinued I thought I'd post a fresh review. Having re-read my review from then I can't find anything further to add. I'm still using the Galaxy Tab daily, I'm only charging it a couple of times a week and I'm still overall very impressed. No wonder Apple would rather it wasn't on sale!

How did you manage to get a Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G with voice telephony to perform your speakerphone test? None of them came with that enabled.
