The Samsung Galaxy S2 is pre-loaded with ICS (Android Ice Cream Sandwich). Android Ice Cream Sandwich is one of the latest Android operating systems for tablets and phones. You're probably wondering why I'm talking about the operating system rather than the actual device itself... When people buy an Android tablet, they probably look for the latest or popular ones. What makes an Android device, "new"? It operating system! People don't see it's operating system. All they see is it's new software features. For example, when Android released its ICS operating system to tablets, people wanted the new features of that operating system. Many companies released tablets that was pre-loaded with ICS. That's what struck people opinion's. Many people didn't care about the new exterior features of the tablets. They wanted ICS.
In some cases, its necessary to judge an android tablet by exterior features. For example, if you compare the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2) with the old Samsung Galaxy 7 inch you would see major exterior differences. (The size, shape, design, performance, camera, etc.) Even though the Samsung Galaxy 7 inch had the old Android Froyo 2.2, compared to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2)'s Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, it's exterior features are significant in comparison.
Enough about the background information... Let's dive into the features of the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (2). I personally have this tablet and love it a lot. It exceeds in many aspects. Let's start off with performance. You can multitask by downloading files, playing games, chatting, etc. without slowing your speed down. Many devices often lag if too much memory is used. You won't have to worry about that when you have the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (2). Another good aspect on this tablet is the camera with flash. You can take videos and pictures at night or in dark places. You won't have to worry about focusing the camera when you move to different positions. Samsung added an auto-focus feature that allows you to take continuous pictures without constantly adjusting the focus.
Now, let's talk about the tablet's stylish interface. Samsung wanted users to have a great experience with this tablet. How can they accomplish this goal without a good interface that appeals to everyone? Samsung made great start-up and shut-down animations, scrolling animations, window animations, user customization(s), etc. to provide a better experience for the user. For example, you all probably experienced the old Windows XP or Windows 2000. Now look at the cool new Windows 7 and Windows 8. Don't think about its new features. Think about's design and appearance. Would you rather use Windows XP or Windows 8?
Finally, I would like to talk about the tablet's exterior features like it's volume buttons, sleep and on/off switch, color, hard drive, etc. You can just skip this paragraph if this doesn't interest you. Don't worry, I won't mind. The Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablet (2) can be purchased in different colors and in different hard drive sizes. The maximum size is 32GB. I personally have the 16GB as I don't download many apps. I use the tablet for basic web browsing, checking email, etc. If you are a heavy user I would recommend the 32GB. Note that the 16GB is cheaper. Finally, I would like wrap up this review by talking about the it exterior buttons. This tablet doesn't have a home button like many Apple products because all your navigating options are in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. This tablet has volume button, a charging port, and an on/off button. Nothing special, just simplicity.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2) is a great device and I highly recommend it.
Summary: Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2) is a great device and I highly recommend it.
