Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Front AngledConclusion

The Kindle Fire seems to have started a good trend. Now that other tablet makers are attempting to compete with it, we end up with solid devices that have excellent value, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. At $249.99 MSRP, the Galaxy Tab 2 is a steal. Not only do you get a true Android experience (as opposed to the heavily skinned, virtually unrecognizable version found on the Fire), you get the most up-to-date version of the OS with Ice Cream Sandwich.

And while it has certain drawbacks like a sub-par display, a small amount of onboard storage, and mediocre cameras, they are far from being dealbreakers. If anything, the Galaxy Tab 2 still triumphs over its budget tablet competition in spite of those weaknesses, especially thanks to its superb battery life and microSD expandable storage. If you want a quality tablet on the cheap and don’t want to have to settle for Amazon’s version of Android, shell out the extra $50 for the Galaxy Tab 2, because it’s worth it.
