13 May 12 Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Dual-core in a quad-core world

While the Tab 2 10.1 uses a PLS screen, its color accuracy unfortunately isn’t up to standard.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was one of the premier
tablets when it launched in 2011, with specs that, at the very least, matched top tier Android tablets of the time.

Unfortunately, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 feels almost like a disappointing prequel, rather than a full-fledged “we’ve improved on every feature!” sequel.

I mean, when a premium tablet gets a follow-up, it’s not a crazy thing to expect a lot from said follow-up; however, Samsung went the “budget” route with the Tab 2 10.1, limiting its advances. The problem is, since the Tab 2′s announcement, two Tegra 3 tablets (from Asus and Acer) have been released at very similar (or in Asus’ case, lower) prices than Samsung’s offering.

Still, the Tab 2 10.1 includes an IR blaster, its unique Touchwiz UX interface, and comes with 50GB of free Dropbox storage for a year.

Check out the full review to see whether that’s enough to be worthy of your consideration.
