Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) (Verizon Wireless)


Before the Google Nexus 7 came along, I would have recommended the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) to anyone looking for a great small-screen Android tablet. It's still a good choice, but compared with the Nexus 7, it now looks a bit dated. One thing...

Responsive and reliable performance. Fast 4G LTE speeds. Reasonably priced

Lags behind some non-LTE enabled Android competitors

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) is a reasonably priced and reliable Android tablet that will get fast speeds on Verizon's solid 4G LTE network.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 4G LTE (Verizon)


Editors' note : Thanks to the release of recent, high-quality tablets, the overall score of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 4G LTE (Verizon) has been adjusted down from 6.8 to 6.5.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 4G LTE (Verizon) includes dual cameras, memory expansion, and fast 4G LTE speeds with no contract.

$350 is a lot of money for a 7-inch tablet with the Tab 2 7.0's feature lineup. The screen resolution is lower than the Nexus 7's and the back camera lacks an autofocus feature.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 4G LTE (Verizon) delivers on 4G speeds and features, but is too expensive to recommend.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 review: Take two


It seems that Samsung have taken it upon themselves on literally making a tablet for everyone. With all of the Galaxy Tab variants out there, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 it seems like systematic attempt by Samsung to put a unique tablet variant in the hands...

7.0" 16M-color PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen of WSVGA resolution (1024 x 600 pixels) ; Weighs 344 g ; TI OMAP 4430 chipset: Dual-core 1GHz processor; 1GB of RAM; PowerVR SGX540 GPU ; Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz UX UI ; Optional...

Front-facing camera is only VGA resolution ; No LED flash for primary camera ; Has a non-replaceable battery ; Uses a proprietary 30-pin connector port for charging and connectivity ; One of the lowest-capacity batteries in the range ; No USB charging

Entry into the realm of Android tablets can hardly get any easier than with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 in your hands. The tablet offers a capable hardware and solid build quality, to go with a low price tag for the entry-level model. The camera is...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (8GB)


I guess we have Amazon to thank for proving that you don't need a premium tablet to be successful. While Samsung tried competing on the premium tablet front for the last year and will continue to do so, it's finding this strategy to be more difficult...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 delivers a mostly pure Ice Cream Sandwich experience for only $250. The tablet also trumps the Kindle Fire in extras by including dual cameras, expandable memory, and TV remote-control functionality

The screen doesn't look as pretty as other PLS displays, and its camera performance is lacking compared with other tablets in the line

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 offers an excellent value and a full Android 4.0 experience that no other tablet can currently match for the price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)


The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) may not be a big step forward on the hardware front, but it's a simple, elegant small-screen tablet that really shows off the polish and power of Google's latest mobile operating system for just $250.

Inexpensive. Ships with Android 4.0. Slim, lightweight, and well-built. Stable and responsive performance

Average, aging components. Screen could be sharper

Finally—Ice Cream Sandwich has arrived. The 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will be the first tablet from the manufacturer to ship with Google's latest Android 4.0 mobile operating system right out of the box. Despite the progressive moniker,...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 review


It's getting really hard to keep track of Samsung's Galaxy Tab lineup — there's the Galaxy Tab, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 8.9, and now the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. The Galaxy...

Inexpensive ; Runs Android 4.0 ; Thin and light ; Long battery life

Other Galaxy Tabs have better displays ; Android doesn't have enough good tablet apps ; Terrible cameras

Samsung can't beat the iPad, but it's not trying to anymore

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review


There's a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet in town, and this one is what Samsung hopes will be a whole new experience driver for the whole hardware family. Where what we've seen before from Samsung has been a set of tablets that tried to be...

Ships with Ice Cream Sandwich ; IR Blaster transforms tablet into smart remote ; Performance is fast and fluid ; Decent battery life for a 7-incher ; Priced to sell

No LED flash accompanying the rear camera

Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) is a smart choice for budget-conscious buyers looking for a dependable Android 4.0 tablet on the cheap.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) LTE Review


A few months ago, Samsung introduced its Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) Wi-Fi only tablet, which came in at a reasonable $250. Now Verizon has started selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), but they are packing it with 4G LTE data capability, as well as a...

Lowest price 4G tablet for Verizon ; Android 4.0.4 ICS ; IR Blaster

Screen resolution isn’t the best ; Poor camera quality ; Uses a proprietary 30-pin charging/data cable

plenty of power under the hood with its 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor that runs Android ICS and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI without a hitch, but we do wish the display was higher resolution so text and images would look sharper, especially when viewing web...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) Review


Just a month ago, we managed to preview Samsung's answer to the Kindle Fire – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0). Needless to say, if you're expecting something cutting-edge, you won't find it here, but rather, it's affordably priced at $250 and somehow...

250 price point ; Android 4.0 ICS out of the box ; Incorporates an IR blaster ; Great battery life

Choppy performance ; Same old TouchWiz UX experience ; Not so great with its still shots

Above all, there’s no escaping the love surrounding the $249.99 pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 – it’s just super affordable on any budget! Indeed, it’s $50 more expensive than the Amazon Kindle Fire, but the advantages are seen with its arsenal of...
