I wanted a tablet why because everyone else had one and said you can't live without one! and I thought it would help my daughter with her school work(I'm an over 40+ mom)- I had no idea how to use one before buying this (I'm not very computer freindly-not even a smart phone) the salesman was very knowledgeable explained a whole lot of things I didn't understand(even after he explained it) but I bought it because he ended his explaination with it's really very easy to use it tells you what you need to know(mostly) I have had it for a month now and LOVE it and it is very easy to use and it does everything and more then I thought it could or would do. it almost can replace my laptop for what I use it for and it "makes" things available to me that I didn't know I needed or could use did I say I love it and it plays great movies,wonderful as an e-reader etc..it's not to heavy and fits into my purse the only thing I can complain about with this is it is about 1/8" to big to fit into cases made for ipads and I tried alot of them (I really wanted a leather one or designer one) but ended up buying one made just for it (in pink) online- there just aren't many choices of cases for it out there and the stores themselves didn't have many choices (including sears as well as quite a few other electronic stores) so thats my biggest complaint it took a month to find a nice cover for it and had to purchase a sleeve for it while I looked to protect it(it would also have been nice if it came with screen protecters or if they were available when I bought the tablet)

This tablet is fun/easy to use overall. The battery life is great! Not super heavy and it is easy to hold in my lap. I love the clear, bright screen. However sometimes I dislike when I turn it off it comes back on but then I realize that maybe it has to do with a software update. Not sure but I've noticed after it updates, the problem clears up. But I do love my tablet and would recommend it to others.

Bought this a year ago for my wife, but my kids use it just as much (9 and 6yrs old) and it in someone's hand most of the day...Very durable. no complaints does everything we need it to
This "was" a great tablet until the last update. Not only did Samsung change the whole look and feel of the tablet, but now some of the apps I absolutely loved to use don't work anymore. Now you can't get rid of the quick toolbar at the bottom and it's on every screen. They moved settings and clock to the top of the screen and you have to drag down to get the settings screen (it takes several tries and it's a chore)! I don't want Windows 8 on my tablet, that's why I bought an android, so DON'T make it look/feel like Windows 8! There is no longer an "easy" way to change the screen brightness (used to be right on the quick settings screen, that used to be on the bottom). Now, I can't mirror the screen to my Samsung television. I would have recommend Samsung before, but now it's more or less worthless. Maybe if they fix the problems they created with the last update, it might change my view.
Received this as a fathers day gift. I was tired of my laptop and wanted something I could easily use for Facebook and email. While it won't replace a laptop, it is nice having it. I like that it is android, so it is familiar to use since I have had an Android phone for some time now. Battery lasts a good long time, display is bright and clear. It is light easy to use. No complaints really.
This tablet is an excellent substitution for a bulky laptop to do whatever with the wide selection of apps. When at home, my phone is not used unless I get a call. It is the most used device in my home. Yes, even more than my TV. The only reason this tablet does not get a five star rating is because I've noticed it does not communicate well with my router if I'm upstairs, or on the opposite side of the house of the router. All my other devices maintain their same WIFI speed and signal.
I have been using mine since the day it came out. I still use it daily to this very day. It has been through all kinds of travels as well as surviving my sons terrible twos... Over all, this is a fantastic device that I still continuously use and rely upon.
This was a gift and I simply love it. Easy to use, awesome applications. Currently have an issue after the latest software upgrade but I'm still please with the overall product and can't wait to get it back from the repair service department at Samsung.
I love my tablet but I have had many times where it just froze up, so I had to format the tablet and start a new. But I have also had this tablet for a couple years now and have used it extensively. Great value and interface, just like their phones. Great product and value!
I have had my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for 10 months and it has proven to be of great use when it comes to productivity. I am able to use it for college classes without having to use a bulky laptop as well as download eBook text books for half the cost and less bulky as well. It has been and continues to be a valuable asset for both work and school.
Just is awesome product, surfing in the web easy , i used for see netflix all the time , i read my email, bank statement , many more function, anyway this product is great. The apps is cool , is tottally functional.
Love it. It play all the games that my kids download. We bought 64GB microSD and load bunch of movies in it and it play back without any problem. A touch screen TV/Receiver/DirectTV/DVD remote control (universal) !!! Cool
I got my tablet in April and love it! Chose it over the IPad. Fast! Fast! Fast! Easy to connect (Wi-Fi & printer) and really quick downloads. Downloaded a bunch of my MS Office docs. Unfortunately, Polaris not compatable & formatting changes but it gets the job done. The keyboard & case is a little pricey accessory but makes it so you no longer need PC or laptop. Must be in the shade to use outside because of the glare and display is still a little hard to see. But great Screen Res. Still exploring all the apps, don't really use many but so far so good. Had problem with camera eating up battery but appears fine now. Battery power is much greater than I expected - 6-9hrs - probably b/c I close all unnessary apps, etc. when writing. Can't easily plug in USB, someone told me you can use adaptor but haven't tried yet. I would definitely recommend! Can't wait to get S4 phone and sync with my tablet! Don't like the icons when I save.
Bought this tablet mainly as an ebook reader. Installed Nook software. Both Nook and pre-loaded Kindle readers work fine. Also installed Polaris Office for Word and Excel files, which also works fine. CANNOT delete pre-loaded BLOATWARE which I never use but which insists on launching @ startup: Google Play services, Google Services (TWO), Media, Game Hub, AccuWeather.com, S Suggest, Media Hub, com.sec.phone. Would love some kind of startup "edit" app to get rid of the BLOAT.
I have been using my tablet for about 2 months and I love it. The playstore and samsung apps give you unlimited choices. I also enjoy all of the preinstalled apps and was even able to find apps that would allow me to print even though i don't have a samsung printer. I love the size of the screen and the keyboard and having android 4.1.1 already installed (hope there will be another upgrade SOON). I wish samsung had installed an anti glare screen so you would not have to strain or shade it with your hand in the outside light and sometimes the touch element of the screen can be pretty resistant and that's a disappointment. Overall, good work so far samsung
This is a pretty nice unit, but it does not run "Adobe Flash Player" as stated in some of the advertising on this site. Also some web pages have pop ups asking about accepting a "certificate", but it does'nt let you accept it permanently, very annoying.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 WiFi 16GB tablet is a good device. It feels good in your hands and is not too heavy when using as a reader or just surfing. Again Samsung has produced a very useful and stable product.
Bought this for my son he loves it , great speed love the screen and super fast download. He loves the fact he can research for school and be connected to all his friends and family...... i think i may have to get one for myself since i keep stealing his....:)
This tablet is very easy to use. I love its lightweight, design and its color is just right. It has perfect vivid display and its performance is great although it does freeze and shuts down once in a while. Its Wi-Fi function is fantastic and the apps that are included are marvelous.
