Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two - read the full textThe question this second-generation Samsung tablet is trying to answer is not "How much better can it get?" The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 stops at how much. It feels safe pretending there's no such thing as a third-generation iPad...


Sort by:

A bit bewildered by the benchmark comments.

1. Review says " It holds its ground quite well against the ULP Nvdia GeForce inside the Tegra 3, though.", yet none of the devices it is compared against is running a Tegra 3
2. Benchmark comparisons are against other Samsung products, how about including tablets that compete with the Samsung current or post generation to make it more meaningful

One area GSMarena really needs to touch for Android is application compatibility, and see if some form of official test can come to see how it performs not just in fps but in compatibility would be a nice improvement.

To be honest I hate the New Ipad as much as i hate Samsung(TW and lack of premium materials) but I'm curious to see the ones that bashed Ipad when the new Galaxy Tab is even a much smaller improvement over the older Galaxy Tab

Does ICS really provide a full internet experience?
Can you use drag and drop?

How do Samsung expect to compete with Apple by putting out garbage like this?

"The problem is, the niche itself might seize to exist in a few months' time as quad-core slates' prices start to drop."

You mean "cease to exist", right?

I dont understand why do people always compare the hardware of samsung with that of apple ipad.

Well the main difference between the 2 is the operating system and the usability.

What makes ipad & iphone stand out in the crowd is it's operating system, ease of use.

Android maybe powerfull and apple products are easy to use for laymans.

So it has the disadvantages of the iPad pretty much. Non replace-able battery is a given, when you get replace-able batteries, the battery life goes down.

Why is touchwiz not a disadvantage? Might have great features but just slows the whole thing down
