better than expected! love it

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)

A little mistake
I like the way it feels. But as a High end user it left me wanting more for someone looking for the basic this maybe a good unit the lack of customizing the mini Apps was a very poor over sight on Samsung. From what I can see there a big gap from this unit and the Samsung Galaxy note tablet

Good Product, Could Use Some Improvements

Don't get me wrong, this IS a good device, so please try not to take this review too negatively. There are some things I have noticed that could use some help. The OS stalls/freezes and is hard to reboot once this has happened. This happens about every-other day. That is a lot for a moderate user and I have a habit of making sure unused apps are not running in the background. I am a heavy user of other devices and might have issues once a week or once every-other week where a reboot is in order. This, as of yet, does not seem to be related to an app issue. Rendering is slow even with the power save mode off. The battery life is good, but it would be nice to have easy access to it in the event a replacement is needed. The screen quality is good, but amoled would have made for a good product. As of yet, some top apps are either not available or not compatible with this device. Having a rear facing camera with a higher pixels would be nice. :)

Overall I would say I am satisfied with my purchase of the Samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1. It does have a small lag sometimes. I would recommend any of the samsung tablets over other brands. I have been a Samsung fan, I have the galaxy note as my phone and their laptop, and I have been very satisfied with them all.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Unhappy with the Tab 2 10.1

I am having issues since the day I bought it. Not worth the money spent. 1. I had issues setting up WiFi on my home network. My phones, laptops and all other devices could find the wireless network and could connect happily. The Samsung tab 2 always complained WiFi not in range even if I sit next to the router. I finally could fix this after configuring my WiFi router to issue a static IP to the Samsung Tab. 2, After I fixed the WiFi issue started the issue with charging my Tab. Even after connecting my Tab on power as well as on USB, the tab could sense the power with a beep but was not getting charged. I used to see a RED X mark on the battery. I had to switch off the tab and then it used to charge sometimes. 3. Finally now the tab no longer can power-on. When I connect the power, I see a quick flash as if the Tab is powering on and shows the battery symbol and goes off. This keeps repeating even if I put it on power for 24 hours. No longer able to switch on the tab, it's dead.

I love my Samsung 10.2

The product is really wonderful and had almost replaced my lab top if not for the fact that Android products are not supported by Flash and so most videos I could watch online on certain websites could not be viewed. Another short coming of the product is on the Camera use that cannot be zoomed or reduced, otherwise the product is excellent in every other way. It connects to any available network (WIFI) very easily once the key/code/password are provided. The video recordings are so wonderful. I wish that Samsung will add the features of image zooming and reducing during photographing or video recording. Also if they will introduce a software that will support any online video or image viewing like the one use by U-tube, then it will be my number any day.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great tablet for price

Just started using android market, have Mac's mostly. I bought the doc, and it helps when charging, it would have been nice to have some LED's on the front of the dock to let you know when your tablet is charging or fulling charging, ie. green for fully charged, orange for charging, and red for dead.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not a Wow but worth it

It looks good and gets done what you need it to. Not a flashy over the top tablet but comes with the features you'd expect. Battery life is pretty good. I feel like i got a good value for my buck but dont feel like i have the latest and greatest. a bit disappointed though that it doesn't come with NFC. would be nice if my phone and tab could exchange data by means of NFC.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A bit slow with large PDF files, otherwise a nice product

I purchased this device to use the microSD card application to load a lot of text books for school/work and my only complaint is that it can take several minutes to load some of the files. I have liked the applications, the look, and the convenience of the microSD card, but I wish it was a bit faster. Despite the speed, it was still worth the price.

Not Recomended.

Sleek design but very poor performance. Features are just average like any other tablets in the market. Some times you will keep clicking but nothing happens! Reboot but still the same. Display is bright but suddenly gets grey! I would not recommended any one!

Great Tablet

I purchased this tablet after have a IPAD. While the IPAD is a little easier to use the features of the Galaxy Tab far exceed it. I'm looking to upgrade my tablet to the new Note 12.2.

No problems

I've had my tablet for 1 1/2 years now, and I have had no problems with it. I find I use it more than my laptop now. I didn't think I would like reading on a tablet, but I was wrong. I had some surgery recently, and the ease of downloading a book kept me from going insane while I was down. At first, I was having trouble reading outside, but I discovered the Kindle app has an adjustment with the fonts that fixed this problem. The battery life is still excellent. I take my tablet to a friends cabin that doesn't have power quite often, and read all day. I do keep a portable power backup with me, but rarely use it, My daughter has an Ipad, and I can't see the advantage.

An economy sedan engine in a sport coupe body

My wife received this tablet from her mom, who got it for free in a promotion from her wireless provider. Overall it's a decent tablet but there are several areas where it lags behind. The 10.1" screen is very sharp and colorful. TouchWiz is a hit or miss, depending on personal preference. I like it ok. The camera takes adequate photos but there's no led flash. The main area where this tablet falls short is the processor. A year or so ago, it would have been the standard. But today, after being spoiled by the quad core processor in my Galaxy S5, the dual core in this tablet just feels painfully slow. It takes much longer than it should to open apps and this thing hates multitasking. There is a lot of stuttering and hesitation in almost all operations. We only use this tablet for playing games. For everything else we use our phones.

Great Technology

Samsung has been the leading developer of new and affordable technology for years. The Galaxy tablet is no exception. I purchased ours for my child in "Special Ed" to augment her learning. The Samsung Galaxy not only helps her learn through age appropriate and developmental learning programs but allows her to have fun. She takes her tablet almost everywhere and this allows her to be more a part of inclusion with other children with her same age group.

Great Tablet for the price

This tablet has come in handy in so many ways. I love how thin it is and easy to travel with. I used this on my last couple of trips to keep me entertained. I also love how it connects to my Samsung Laptop with ease. I have been able to also use it as a handy remote for my Home Theater System as well. Makes typing a breeze when I am searching for new apps on my Home Theater System.

I am pleased with this product as the features are useful and the placement of everything is great. I especially like the positioning of the speakers being on the front rather than the back like most devices.

I never thought I'd like to have a tablet, until I got one. I really love having it. I can easily check my email and facebook, search the web. Unfortunately for me, it's really become a mini gaming machine. It's a lot of fun. I also love being able to watch movies and shows on the go too.

This product has a great performance.

I had this device for less than one year. It worked very fine with no complain. But for some reason it dead without even a signal. The warranty is awful. I waited until now to send my device back for more than a week !! It is hard to tell or to find any information about your device if you send it back to Samsung.
