User Reviews 1 User Reviews I particularly like the Super AMOLED Plus display, describing it as the best looking display I've ever seen on a tablet thanks to the deep contrasts, vivid colors, and great quality for reading text. I also really appreciate the lightweight and thin yet sturdy design which makes the tablet highly portable to carry around and fit into my pockets more easily than 10 inch tablets. Additionally, I find the fast 4G LTE connectivity a huge selling point for increased portability.

However, I did notice some sluggishness in the user interface and touch response which I attribute to the Android 3.2 operating system. I also think the $499 on-contract pricing seems a bit high.

User Reviews 2 I think the gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display is definitely the best thing about this tablet. It has incredibly deep blacks, great viewing angles, and just looks great. It's among the best displays I've seen on an Android tablet. The tablet is also impressively thin and lightweight making it very portable.
The LTE connectivity provides fast and consistent data speeds, though not as fast as I expected. Still, battery life remains quite strong with over a day of heavy use. Ultimately though, I think Honeycomb's limitations hold back great hardware.

User Reviews 3 I absolutely love the Super AMOLED Plus display on this tablet. It offers excellent contrast, deep blacks, vibrant colors, and great viewing angles from any angle. It's clearly superior to the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the best display I've seen on an Android tablet.

The metal design also feels more premium than the plastic 7.0 Plus, with a scratch-resistant back that attracts less fingerprints. However, both tablets are still well-built and extremely thin and light. Impressively, the 7.7 packs a large battery delivering over 12 hours of video playback.
