The Bottom Line The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes up short in performance, features, and value compared with competing tablets. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get. The improved S Pen goes a long way to making this high-end tablet worth the extra cost, but if you're not sold on the stylus, it's easy to find a better deal. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is a sleekly designed tablet but, with more powerful and cheaper options available, it feels like more of the same, rather than an upgrade. The Nexus 10's superior design and swift performance make it one of the best Android tablets to date.
