Reviews

User Reviews 1 User Reviews We thought the display produced very natural and vivid colors with good details. Viewing angles were okay but viewing in sunlight can still be difficult. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus had good audio quality during music and video playback that was powerful and non-distorted.

The tablet offered smooth and fluid performance with its dual-core processor and Honeycomb OS. Some minor software issues like a bit of choppiness with live wallpaper but it handled multitasking and gaming with ease.

We thought the video recording quality was disappointing with soft, faint details and washed out colors in low light. The still camera also suffered from graininess, faint details, and color issues.

User Reviews 2 The tablet boasts stereo speakers, a 30-pin connector, USB cable (with USB at one end), but no HDMI port. The absence of HDMI might be a drawback when compared to cheaper tablets like Kindle and Nook. However, there's an option for HDMI through an adapter.

It runs on a fast dual-core 1.2 GHz Samsung Exynos processor, outperforming other Android devices. The tablet is thin and light, outclassing the HTC Flyer, and its 7-inch display matches competitors in resolution.

User Reviews 3 The tablet's aesthetics impress, with vibrant and bright colors on the screen. The TouchWiz interface enhances simplicity, featuring useful widgets and apps for easy navigation.
The camera, though simple, proves effective with clear shots even in low light. RSCKY recommends the tablet for quick snapshots. Built-in apps, including Polaris Office for compatibility with Microsoft Office, are highlighted. The tablet also features a universal smart remote app called Peel and various Samsung hubs for media and social networking.

In the ever-evolving world of tablets, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus made its mark when it was released in October 2011. Fast forward to today, and despite its discontinuation, the tablet still stands as a noteworthy device in its time. Let's delve into the nitty-gritty of what made this tablet tick.

Design and Display

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus boasted a sleek and thin design, weighing in at a mere 345 grams. It came in classic Black and White colors, with dimensions measuring 193.7 x 122.4 x 9.9 mm.

The display, a 7.0-inch PLS LCD, delivered a resolution of 600 x 1024 pixels and a pixel density of 170 ppi. The capacitive, multi-touch screen also featured ambient light and proximity sensors.

Power and Performance

Running on Android 3.2 (Honeycomb), upgradeable to 4.1 (Jelly Bean), the tablet was equipped with a dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, Exynos 4210 chipset, and Mali-400MP4 GPU.

It packed 1GB of RAM and internal storage options of 16GB or 32GB, expandable via microSDXC. The tablet's performance was commendable, handling multitasking and gaming with ease.

Multimedia Features

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus didn't shy away from multimedia prowess. With a 3.15 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera, it supported JPEG image format and 720p@30fps video recording. The camera features included auto-focus, geo-tagging, and smile detection.

While the still camera faced some criticism for graininess and color issues, the tablet's audio quality during music and video playback received praise for being powerful and distortion-free.

Connectivity and Battery Life

Connectivity options were plentiful, featuring Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0 with TV-out, and GPS with A-GPS support. The tablet lacked NFC and wireless charging capabilities.

A notable inclusion was the IR blaster, turning the tablet into a universal remote. The 4000 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery promised up to 1000 hours of standby time and up to 40 hours of talk time on 2G, and up to 20 hours on 3G.

User Experience and Final Verdict

Users found the plastic build durable, although some criticized it for a “cheap feel.” The display received positive remarks for natural and vivid colors but faced challenges in direct sunlight.

The tablet's performance was smooth, with the Honeycomb OS and dual-core processor ensuring a fluid experience. Some minor software issues were noted, including occasional choppiness with live wallpaper.

However, the tablet's video recording quality and still camera performance left users wanting more, especially in low-light conditions. The battery life met expectations, offering around 1.5 days of use for most users.

The Bottom Line

In the grand scheme, the Samsung P6200 Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus earned its stripes as a capable and feature-rich tablet. Its sleek design, multimedia capabilities, and notable additions like the IR blaster added value to the user experience.

While not groundbreaking, the tablet's upgrades in hardware were appreciated.

The tablet's pricing, however, was a point of contention, especially when compared to 10-inch rivals in the same price range. The 7-inch form factor, a matter of preference, was highlighted as both a pro and a con.

In conclusion, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus may have been discontinued, but its legacy lives on as a device that brought a mix of innovation and refinement to the tablet landscape.

It catered to users seeking a compact yet powerful tablet experience, and despite its imperfections, it left an indelible mark on the market.
