The good: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 delivers a mostly pure Android 4.0 experience for only $250. The tablet also trumps the Kindle Fire in extras by including dual cameras, expandable memory, and TV remote-control functionality.
The bad: The screen doesn't look as pretty as other PLS displays, and its camera performance is lacking compared with other tablets in the line.
The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 offers an excellent value and a full Android 4.0 experience that no other tablet can currently match for the price.
Fast, intuitive, and well-designed

Pros: Great value, intuitive layout and design, fast
Cons: Not certified by Samsung for Flash Player 11. Adobe will not continue FP development beyond v11, but Samsung's pre-installed Video Player app works well.
Summary: I had been waiting for someone to make a device like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 before I purchased a tablet. The design, ease-of-use, display, features, etc., are ...
Summary: I had been waiting for someone to make a device like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 before I purchased a tablet. The design, ease-of-use, display, features, etc., are great, the controls are well-located, and the device is as good as, or better than, tablets costing much more.
The 32 GB microSD/SDHC card I use to back up movies and music does a fine job of supplementing the 4 Gb internal storage.
Samsung customer service was great when I contacted them about Flash Player, its Video Player app, and other alternatives. The representative was patient, helpful, knowledgeable, and had backup available when she did not have an answer. Great customer service like that is rare - and valuable.
Can't beat for the price!!!

Pros: Expandable Memory via a mini SD card (32 gig max)
Size of Tab
weight of Tab
Sound of the external speakers
Cameras (not the best but good enough)
speed and touch screen are very good
Cons: Playing digitally downloaded movies from storage is a serious challenge
Apps can't be stored on SD card
USB cord could be longer (that's minor though)
Summary: All in all this is a great tablet for $250. It does most of what I need it to do and does it well. Those that are expecting maximum specs ...
Summary: All in all this is a great tablet for $250. It does most of what I need it to do and does it well. Those that are expecting maximum specs and performance should look to more robust and expensive tablets. For the money this is a sweet device!
Feels like too much of a compromise

Summary: I already have a Nook Color It's an excellent reader but as an Android tablet, it leaves much to be desired. So I was eager to check out the Tab 2. I was immediately disappointed with the screen resolution. Small text had to be magnified. The colors seemed muted.
My cell phone has a better display than this tablet. I'm sure you could forgive a lot for $250 but I've learned the hard way that if I let price overrule quality I regret it in the long run.
It probably wasn't fair that I tested the GT2 in an Office Depot. They don't provide much of an environment to test their tablet offerings. Plus they told me I could only exchange it for a store credit if I was dissatisfied. I couldn't take the chance.
Bottom line, the things that make tablets so smooth to the touch and brilliant to the eye are things you really have to pay if you want them. There's no way around it. You're not going to get a $400-tablet experience for $250.
Low-cost for a full-featured Android Tablet? OF COURSE!

An excellent update to the tab 7 a form factor.
by Xtreame96 on April 22, 2012
Pros: Excellent size for Doctors (fits in a lab coat) perfect stability, awesome battery life. Excellent Email, great performance.
Cons: The default book reader uses too much back light and drains the battery. A simple setting change to fix. (Kobo Reader)
Summary: And excellent upgrade from my Ipad 2.

I like the idea of minimal or no bloatware on a device, pure(er) ICS
Decent camera (don't need a great one on a tablet, IMO)
Expandable memory is always a plus
Cons: I'll take their word for it that the screen isn't as great, but consider the price

Summary: Thanks Amazon for getting the ball rolling, now the grown ups will take it from here. Not a big fan of the Kindle Fire, as it is just a controller for a retail outlet, but they did prove their is a market for low end tablets. They should stick to pure e-readers, as my Kindle Keyboard 3G is good for what it is intended to do, read books.This is all a comparison to the Fire, just wanted to show that Amazon will be hard pressed to sell more tablets in the future
