I have had this tablet now for two weeks. The software is not impressive and definitely I dislike Samsung customisation. There are occasional freezes according to post is due to Samsung's custom widgets.

Samsung itself refused to upgrade Galaxy S to ICS saying the hardware will not be enough for TouchWiz, i.e. it is a resource hog.

A lot of the application have not been optimised for tablet. They either do not work at all or think that they are on a phone with very small buttons, menus etc. And there is no sign of ICS upgrade either.

It is time that some vendors understand that if they want to differentiate themselves they should sell pure Android products and upgrade them quickly with new sofware.

Those that do not have an honeycomb tablet before, please note this:

The external sdcard on this device is mounted as Read only out of the box. So u cannot write to external sdcard unless u use their stock file browser.

Wifi transfer to your ext sdcard WILL NOT WORK. so prepare to keep ur usb data cable and use MTP with ur PC. If you use MAC.. u can only transfer file by file.. via android file transfer application

Basically u will have 12gb of data (those with 16gb version) whereby apps can modify, the rest of the storage most apps cannot write to it. so no more move to SD

PS: its not the device hardware fault thou.. its the OS.

Unless u root the device and void your warranty

after a week using this tab 7.7, the performence so far is impressive..i buy this tab because of its spcifications and features. just 1 slight problem that maybe everyone have, "the TouchWiz"..a bit laggy but i hope 4.0 ICS will repair this problem..
for gamers, maybe we have to wait for the developers to update all their games so we can enjoy the nice viewing graphic in tab 7.7
and 1 more thing that is really f**king good is the battery life..stand for almost 1 full day with heavy using gaming, email, online, messaging and etc for me..
as a conclusion, BEST TABLET EVER!!

p/s
why the rating of this tablet still the same from last week?the only diffrent is th rating of the features is on increase by 0.1..maybe gsmArena hate this tablet..hahaha...JK

Before buying i did lot of research as I wanted to have the best, considering new tablets are coming with quad core....... I went ahead and bought 7.7 ;) I was amazed to see the hardware quality and the crisp screen. Software is ok and if someone is complaining of lagging ( which I did not feel ) then maybe they can just use another launcher. Its a nice tablet with high specs, superior build. If someone is thinking of buying a tablet then I highly recommend to least check this piece of class in a store and play with it for few minutes. What more, thanks to all of u as reading your comments made me buy the best possible tab.
