Back in February, a Samsung executive was quoted as saying: "Honestly, we're not doing very well in the tablet market." The company's solution? Release more of the same tablets that haven't done very well in the first place. While the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1...

Posted in Mobile Device Reviews, Reviews This tablet is a nice big 10.1-inch size with a Multitouch 720p HD Screen (1280 x 800). The top edge of the tablet has the power button, a volume rocker button, the SD slot and the IR eye. More on that later...

This is a 10inch Android Tablet with a few extras that are unique to Samsung. A lot has been written about a device made by Apple and the apparent similarities this bears to it, as I have no close knowledge of the former I cannot...

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is Samsung's attempt at a 10-inch high-end Android tablet , similarly the Nexus 10 is Google's equivalent. So it would make perfect sense to compare the two, right? That's just what we've done. Here's our Google Nexus 10 vs Samsung...

Even with its stellar battery life and good gaming performance, this is not a good tablet. I don't think I'd go so far as to say it's the worst tablet on the market, but you will certainly notice its shortcomings should you buy this device. And then...

Despite the fact that you can still buy this tablet right now, it's definitely aging when you compare it to other tablets of comparable price on the market. While it does offer some pretty awesome features, the core performance of the screen and outdated...

As far as middle of the road Android tablets go, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 hits the nail on the head. It's doesn't stray too far from the norm, failing to offer anything truly exciting or different, but also ensuring it doesn't fall flat on its...

Tablets are becoming increasingly popular these days, because as cool as smartphones are, the 7" - 10" screen size of most of the common tablets really hits the sweet spot. With the ability to quickly browse the net, watch a film, play games and do any...

While the Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 10.1 doesn't offer much cutting edge tablet features, it proves to be a well rounded Android 4.0 tablet offering. Users will appreciate its attractive and relatively lightweight form-factor, its capable performance,...

A year ago we liked the Tab 10.1, and for the second generation the hardware specs remain broadly the same, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has a much better operating system. All for £100 cheaper than it was. We love the bright screen, and adding...

Android tablets are starting to become more affordable, and for less than £350 you can already find tablets from the high-end brands. We tested two that were recently launched, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Toshiba AT300. We compared them with...

Overall, a good tablet. The Galaxy Tab still rules the roost for video playback and codec/container support. The problem is, it's not that interesting to look at. But at this price, we think it's a decent competitor to the iPad, and there's more than...

With Asus’ 32GB Transformer Pad available for £399 complete with quad-core CPU, 8Mp camera and keyboard dock, and the smaller Nexus 7 soon to hit the market for £160, the Galaxy Tab 2 isn’t quite cheap enough to make a compelling case for itself....

The long-running patent dispute between Apple and Samsung continues to rage on in the courts with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 already amongst the victims (in the EU at least), but that's clearly not stopped Samsung rolling out the tablets with the Samsung...

Samsung's 10.1" Galaxy Tab 2 is doubtlessly a good tablet. The equipment is chosen aptly for a midrange tablet. Little things like the omitted LED Flash or that the front-face camera has a lower resolution than the previous generation is tolerable....
