The much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Tab has been released two weeks go. To clarify this is not the 7-inch Samsung tablet everyone is very familiar with but rather their new 10.1-inch tablet. I won’t be talking about Honeycomb OS a lot since I have already done that on the Motorola Xoom Review. First thing you notice is how this tablet looks like an iPad.
The Galaxy Tab has similar specifications to most Android 10 inch tablets out there which includes 1GB of RAM and a dual-core processor. Unfortunately it does not have a SD card slot but for most people 32GB of memory is more than enough. I quickly filled up the home page with my favourite applications then started testing the screen responsiveness.
The responsiveness wasn’t as good as the iPad but there is definately some improvement. I’m assuming further updates will optimize how quick the screen adjusts and responds. Hopefully in Androids upcoming Ice Cream version. For reference this very impressive game, it’s called Samurai Vengeance, one of my favourite tablet optimized games.
I must say the video quality is way better than the iPad and ASUS Transformer even though it is a 3MP rather than 5MP camera. This just proves camera’s are about quality. This is a 720p HD video of me stalking a poor innocent cat hanging around our garden. No cats were harmed during the shooting of this video.
Along with the tablet I bought a two cover rooCASE which had a built-in stand that came in handy. The first case covers the tablet and the second case is like a small bag for the tablet. The quality is great but my only concern would be the case sometimes partially covers up the front camera.
Overall I was impressed, the device did reach my exceptions. Its only downsides are no memory card and no full USB support. The camera was stricking, also comes with an LED flash for those dark moments. I did want to review the Samsung Market but for some reason it wasn’t there. Feel free to ask away.
