Samsung Galaxy Tab review

Samsung Galaxy Tab review

Samsung Galaxy Tab an allround tablet

After having used the Samsung Galaxy Tab for a while, it has become clear to us that the Tab is an all-round tablet with specifications that you would expect from a modern tablet. It also shows us the difference with the iPad, for example. The comparison is inevitable. The Tab is equipped with a microSDHC card slot and a standard format SIM card is used for telecommunication. Additionally, the Galaxy Tab is equipped with a digital camera. It may seem obvious, but just these features are missing in the iPad.

Samsung Galaxy Tab compact device

The Samsung Galaxy Tab’s advantage is optimal dimensions for carrying it with you. In your inside pocket is a realistic option and the relatively lightweight also allows for the Tab to be held in one hand. Whether this is decisive for a user depends on his or her needs. We can imagine that both devices will be placed next to each other on the market, without one having to replace the other. Of course, this will partly be the case, but we still see an intense competition between the two parties.

 

Samsung test conclusion

W orking with the Samsung Galaxy Tab is pleasant. The new Android tablet does what it is supposed to, actually our experience was almost identical to that of a modern smartphone, only now everything is in XL format. Still, there is one characteristic that can be an obstacle for its success, and that is the price tag. The Apple iPad has quite a big price tag, as expected, and thanks to a large amount of loyal Apple fans and the way that it was hyped, the price tag was apparently not an obstacle to sales success. We are not so convinced that this will be the case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Perhaps in combination with a subscription, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be more worthwhile. We can imagine that Samsung has a Galaxy Tab without 3G support that can be marketed later as a price breaker.

Not considering the price, we think that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is a tablet with a lot of potential, and we recommend it!
