Samsung Galaxy Tab
Advantages: good tablet, not too costly
Let's see... i bought the standart package one ( without keyboard, just got wall adaptor, leather case, screen protector, and some skin but i didn;t use it because i'd prefer to use the leather case)
when i hold it, it's felt a little bit small ( compared to my ipad 2) but if i hold it using one hands, i got the impression that it will slip and fall from my hands, although it didn't actually happens ( i didn''t know the exact word to describe it). But after i use the supplied leather case, it's no longer a problem.
When i got it, it/s use a 2.2 froyo android. Unlike my other SE X8 android, this android is not customized. Rather, samsung just add their preferred software, which is make it easiser to modify ( i spent hard time working on x8 android, lot's of uncompatible mods)
the screen is good enoug for watching movie, but the tint is too high for me, means that color displayed is really strong.
Capaitive touchscreen work well except that sometimes it get over sensitive. It rarely happen though.
but i LOVE that 4 touch button below the screen ( in portrait). white glow over black standby, it just classy ( once again, two thumbs up for samsung product designer) and elegant of course.
One thing that i didn;t like from this gadget is the speaker position. WHY does they put both stereo speaker in one side of the screen in landscape? i mean, didn't most people watch video and gaming in landscape? sometimes i didn't understand about a product design
(well i use headphones anyway when i'm watching movie or gaming, but i still prefer is they placed it on both side of screen in landscape)
although samsung stated that this gadget won't had honeycomb ( stuck in 2.3 ) but gingerbread or even froyo itself is more than enough for daily use.
and my favourite : although it's offer generous internal, it still provide microSD slot. all hail samsung \:D/ i placed lots of movies on my 16 gig external ( not provided, buy it separately)
oh and make sure you upgrade the youtube app from market. supplied youtube app works but the one from market is better. it actually enable you to browse comment etc without closing the video screen ( the supplied one didn;t you must exit video screen to view comments etc)
for those who felt that whose galaxy tab is running out of battery far too fast ( i.e. only 4 hours e-book reading) you should check your battery health level dand background process !
for the 1st one : there;s some free apps in the market for checking battery health, cross check the standby time with the technical spec in their website, if it didn't make ever 60% of the claimed ( cek the standby so do not use it when your checking it and turn of background software such as twitter, facebook, e-mail client) you should complain, some of my friend got their batteries replaced for free ( as long as in warranty period)
for the 2nd one, just a tip : there's some application like non-standart e-mail client that refresh for new email far too fast. the indication is although youre doing nothing ( just listening to music/ offline gaming/ even just reading) the up and down arrow is keep blinking ( if it's not blinking but not greyed/ stay green-red means that youre downloading somtehing). throttle down it a bit, just say every 15-30 minutes. If it's urgent the sender will call/text you anyway :D. ANd look for an apps that could join all email into one inbox, they'll bit friendly about the b/w
Summary: Ideal tablet for some business
