Bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the service was amazing. No one had any in stock and you guys did. My son is a very happy boy! Only slight quibble was it arrived and was set to Japanese settings and ended up with an hour or so going through Google to try and re-set to English. Got there in the end as had another Internet tablet available. Would be an absolute nightmare if bought for someone who didn't have other Internet device or someone who didn't realise they could research on google to... (read more)

I have given it a five star rating because it has ended up being better than I had either hoped or expected. Why this and not some other tablet? I have been wanting something in the this size range for quite some time.

A dealbreaker for me was the SD slot, if it didn't have one then I was not going to buy the device, so scratch the Google Nexus 7 and... (read more)
The 7inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is a mini tablet akin to a Kindle in size and has varied ratings ranging from 3 stars to 5 out of 5. TechRadar think that this handy size and lightweight of only 344g would be well suited for commuters or those looking to use it as an eReader. The price is another reason to consider the Tab 2 and it packs all the usual Android features using a TI OMAP 4430 dual-core processor which they believe is sufficient to power most tasks.
T3 are not keen on the chunky design and poor audio of the Galaxy Tab 2 and dislike the plastic casing that is used on the rear of the tablet.
It is a slightly slimmer design compared to the first Galaxy Tab and features a headphone jack, an SD card slot to expand the memory storage from the standard 8 or 16GB up to 32GB.
TrustedReviews do not think it is a very impressive tablet but is good value and still one of the best for under £200. They think the performance of the Galaxy Tab 2 is solid and comfortable to use. They also prefer the glass screen as it avoids an oil slick effect that other tablets suffer from.
Pocket Lint feel that the Galaxy Tab 2 7inch is a grower and love that it can easily be transported in a coat pocket or handbag. The tablet also features a mircoSD card slot as well as an onscreen take screenshot button which they feel is a welcome addition as this feature is normally missing on Android devices.
