Hi All, Need some help here! I'm planning to pick this tab one of these days. I would be using it for making calls and sending emails mostly and probably remaining will be used for browsing the net.
I would like to know whats the battery back up on the TAB for 2G calls and for browsing the web on 3G? I am a very heavy user about an average of 100 calls daily and lots of emailing and 40% of browsing the internet. How long do you thing the battery would last keeping in mind this.
If some of you use it constantly for calls please share the details with me as well. Thanks much in advance for your replies and answers!

my kernel details are as follows.
basebad version is P3100DDLK1
kernel version is 3.0.31-471788

SMP PREEMPT Mon Dec 3 20:49:31 KST 2012
build number is JRO03C.P3100DDCLL1
and plz reply to my other queries which i posted in another post...and many a times my tab gets restarted when i try to paste copied text in a particular field in chrome or firefox...why is that and what is the solution?also..is there anyway i can access flash content in any browser?
shweta67, 12 Apr 2013Hey Gris,my kernel version is mon dec 3 20:49:31 KST 2012. What does this indicate?It is the kernel build date (I'm guessing if KST means Kernel Stamp Time), time when the firmware active for the first tme... and Android version is 4.1.1 right? And what's written under Baseband version, is it: P3100DDCLK1 or P3100DDCLL1? The first one? Coz I've been thinking since you said the date is 3 or early month of dec, the kernel maybe has been ported in november.
Assume that your baseband version is:
- It is tab2 7.0 3G+Wifi (P3100)
- released for South Asia region (DD or DDC)
- Kernel built year 2012 (L is the 12th letter in alphabet)
- Kernel built month is November (indicated by letter K - the 11th letter)
What the purpose of this:
1. To check device originality, as this is Samsung's own method to recognize their devices when connect to KIES.
2. When buying you should be able to know when the shop tries to sell their old stock

See Android version (4.0.4 = ICS, 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 = JB). And also look at the Kernel version to see the firmware date written like this (example): Thu Nov 25 12:32 :29 KST 2012 to know if the shop offering you the latest batch device or not.
As I’m still on ICS, I couldn’t tell you whether it slows down performance or not.
shweta67, 11 Apr 2013Thanks for the link...hey Gris which browser r u using?which one is the best for tab 2,esp if ... moreMy favorit browser is still Opera mini, although it lacks many capabilities offered by other browser apps but for me it’s good enough for daily use to search news and infos, dowloading files and multi media contents (pics, mp3s, vids) or android’s apk files. With compression files feature it is also good when you have slow internet connection as it could reduce data traffic 70-95% depends on browser settings.
Alternative browsers of course the popular browsers for android for advanced browsing experience – chrome, dolphin or opera mobile, unfortunately as you guys with JB having difficulties to see flash contents, I occur the same problem with ICS. For example I’m still unable to open 3d spin phone image on gsm arena 360 view section page that works fine in my ginger bread phone, he he.
Is it a safe buy? Samsung recently slashed its prices and now it fits my budget. My only worry is that it does not have a quadcore processor. Android 5.0 is rumoured to have a basic requirement of a quadcore processor. However Samsung also just launched the Mega series phones with dual core processors. So will those phones also not get a 5.0 upgrade?

I just spoke to the shop guy from where I'm planning to buy this tablet, and he told me that this tab is not coming with jelly bean preinstalled, but he can do it, and it will take few minutes but overall it will slow down a bit after upgrade. Can you suggest how to figure out if jelly bean is preinstalled, and does the upgrade slows down the tab?
Hello.. just got JB 4.1.2 update, Have a question: for older version the samsung slide keys was working great, after the update it is not working properly, Is anybody facing the same issue? Need a solution on this. Thanks in advance.
somebody said that TAB 2 is now available with Jelly bean OS out of the box...is that true...can somebody please provide the manufacturing date of the product...

PK, 10 Apr 2013can sum one revert on my query ?You should asking for the latest batch product if you willing to buy one, it comes with jelly bean preinstalled, so no worries about performance.
Yolli, 11 Apr 2013hey Guys..!!
Can you tell me one thing,how is gaming exp.. of p3100?
I want to buy for gamin... moregaming exp
pretty decent though now the latest games may not run. For example Real Racing 3 does not run on this. Regular Android classics like Temple Run/Angry birds etc run without a glitch. NFS MW 2012 runs like a charm as well, make sure to turn the power saving mode off for the CPU to get maximum CPU performance.
Jigar, 10 Apr 2013To those who use it. Can t be utilized as a proper phone? and as a primary phone? with comfort?Yes it can be used as a phone - get yourself a decent headset and it works nicely as a phone.
Also though the review says no usb charging, this does get charged via usb port - it takes a little longer though. Good device only downer is the screen, which is pretty hard to see in a bright environment.
i am planning to buy this tab. as per the specification of tab , cpu and ram, can we update it to upcoming android version... and about the battery as we cant replace it...
