7 November 2011, Singapore – There’s been so much hype about Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 and we noticed also very high viewership of our previous posts about the tablet. Here’s our tech writer, Dennis’s personal review after fiddling around with the most popular Andriod Tablet.
Design & Feature – This is a beautiful tablet that is slim and lightweight. But the plastic back makes it feel less solid when you compared it to the iPad 2. It is nice to have a tablet that comes with 5 megapixels rear camera and a LED flash. On the Samsung Android Honeycomb user interface, something that differs from the rest of the Android Tablet, is the Print Screen button on the action bar which I find it convenient and handy to share my screens with my friends.
Performance – The screen is brilliant. When comparing the screens while playing Angry Birds on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and on the iPad 2, I noticed that the image is so much more vibrant on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The performance of Android Honeycomb (3.1) seems a bit laggy when you first start up the unit, but after a few swipes it gets better. The battery life is good as the tablet will be able to last for an all day use. The camera performance may be a 5 megapixels camera, but the picture quality did not match my expectations. The pictures are over exposed when the flash is turned on, and the camera do not comes with touch to focus. See the comparison with iPad 2 (VGA quality camera) and iPhone 4 (5 megapixels camera)
Conclusion – The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is still one of the better looking Android Tablets available in the market with a decent performance that supports Adobe Flash.
