Reviews

User Reviews 1 User Reviews Overall, we like the slim, sexy form factor and lightweight feel which makes it easy for one-handed use. The screen is gorgeous. Performance is fast thanks to the dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. Cameras work decently for quick shots to share on social media.

However, we did experience some lag and browser crashes likely related to the Android 3.1 operating system. It's not as solid as we'd like. But this wouldn't stop us from recommending the tablet. It still serves its purpose well for activities like email, web browsing, games, and apps.

User Reviews 2 The screen is gorgeous - one of the best I've seen on a tablet with beautiful colors and text rendering. Performance is fast thanks to the great hardware - this is the best Android tablet available now. The lightweight feel and slim design makes it easy for one-handed use. Speakers sound loud and clear. Cameras work well.

Downsides are the volume rocker placement on the top instead of the side, and lack of a built-in video player app. Video playback is great at 720p but struggles at 1080p.
- Matt Gray
User Reviews 3 The Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS enables handy features like resizable home screen widgets and an expanded recent apps list. Samsung adds value with TouchWiz 4.0 features like screen capture, mini apps access, and a clipboard for saving images/text/URLs.

We like the useful software hubs for reading, gaming, music, apps recommendations, and social network integration. The accessory Bluetooth keyboard snaps neatly around the tablet for portable productivity. Downsides are few - perhaps the proprietary charging connector when some prefer USB.

  • Performance 9 / 10
  • Display 8 / 10
  • Battery 8 / 10
  • Design 10 / 10

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, released in June 2011, caught our attention with its sleek design and lightweight build. Weighing in at a mere 560g, it’s easy to handle with just one hand, making it a practical and stylish choice for users on the go.

Impressive Display and Form Factor

Sporting a stunning 10-inch display, this tablet wows with its 1280×800 resolution screen that makes images pop and text dazzle.

Behind that glossy panel Samsung packs speedy firepower via an Nvidia dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, giving the tablet off-the-charts performance. It zips through menus fluidly, launches apps briskly, and enables slick web surfing and pinch-to-zoom responsiveness.

That speed couples perfectly with the slim 8.6mm chassis, an astonishingly thin frame that out-slims even the svelte iPhone 4.

Despite the skinny silhouette, the Tab 10.1 feels great to hold with an almost absurd lightness at just 1.23 pounds. Yet it still looks premium with classy accents like the aluminum edges and soft-touch white back.

Powerful Performance and Storage Options

Powered by a dual-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU and ULP GeForce GPU, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 delivers swift performance, complemented by 1GB of RAM. With storage options of 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB, the tablet offers ample space for your apps and media. However, it lacks a memory card slot for additional storage.

Smooth User Experience with Android OS

Running on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and upgradeable to 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with the TouchWiz UX UI, the operating system provides a user-friendly interface.

The absence of GSM voice communication and SIM support positions the device primarily as a tablet for internet-related activities.

Decent Cameras and Multimedia Features

The tablet’s 3.15 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera capture decent images and support 720p video recording.

Noteworthy camera features include autofocus, LED flash, and video calling functionality. The tablet is equipped with stereo speakers, offering a satisfactory audio experience, and a 3.5mm jack for headphone connectivity.

Robust Battery Life and Connectivity Options

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs on a non-removable Li-Po 7000 mAh battery, providing up to 9 hours of talk time for multimedia and up to 72 hours of music playback.

While the charging details are not explicitly mentioned, the tablet’s battery life is commendable.

Connectivity features include Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, and hotspot capabilities. The tablet supports USB 2.0 and GPS for navigation. Unfortunately, details regarding NFC, HDMI, and wireless charging are not provided.

Hands-On Review and Recommendations

In our hands-on review, we appreciated the tablet’s slim and lightweight design, making it easy to use single-handedly. The vibrant 10.1-inch display impressed us with its colors and text rendering.

The dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM contributed to fast performance, suitable for various activities like web browsing, gaming, and app usage.

User-Friendly but Occasional Operating System Hiccups

However, we did encounter some lag and browser crashes, possibly attributed to the Android 3.1 operating system. Despite these occasional hiccups, the tablet remains a recommended choice for email, web browsing, games, and apps.

Competing Favorably with the iPad 2

Comparing it favorably to the iPad 2, we consider the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 as one of the best Android tablets available.

We look forward to the potential improvements in the upcoming LTE version, especially for users on the move. Overall, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 stands out as a reliable and stylish option for Android tablet enthusiasts.
