I purchased samsung Tab 2 on March 2014. On Sept 19, 2014 it stopped working. It was not charging up. The Samsung service center asked for replacement of mother board on pay basis eventhough the set is still under warranty. Its a complete waste of money. No commitment from the manufacturer `s side even under warranty.
This is my review after using this tab for nearly one and half years
1. PLS screen looks good, viewing angles r good, brightness average
2. Built quality is good
3. Rear camera quality is good
1. Display is very highly reflective(ur face appears while watching movie)
Display visibility on sunlight is poorest of poor
Maximum brightness low, minimum brightness is high(it hurts ur eyes while reading in a dark room)
Pixel density 170 which is very low(text is not clear, always u hv to zoom in to read text)
2. Loud speaker volume is too low(while watching movie, dialogues r not audible)
3. Performance is too slow (tab becomes slow n freezes often), Nenamark 2 score is 35fps which is worst. Casual games can run fine, but don't dare to play HD games in it, Ram is 768mb not 1gb. Free ram is around 200mb which is low. Multitasking is a hell.
4. Useless samsung bloatwear(chat app, Samsung account, etc) eats ram n sucks battery as well
5. No kit kat update still stuck at jelly bean
6. Samsung shitwiz ui (touchwiz) eats lot of ram n makes tab become unresponsive
7. Front camera quality is worst, ur face doesnt appear even if u r in front of a bright light
8. Very thick bazels at sides they hurts ur hand when holding the tab in a single hand
9. Tab is slippery n weight is high, if u hold the tab for continuously for half an hour it hurts ur hand
10. Touch is smooth but not accurate.
Awesome I use this all the time perfect size and shape and abilities and perfect for homework workwork and gaming. al in all 5 star review *****

I buy this 2 months ago and now i am feeling stupid. Tablet going slow, buffering all the time and processor acting very slow. Money wasting device.

Hi...I have on... I took it about 1 and half years ago... Till now it is working fine... I am using with AIrtel 3G connection. The picture quality is amazing for movie viewing. As it has drawback like fixed battery. If it hangs there is no way to reboot it.
