As crowded as the market for Android tablets has become, the impossibly long-lasting Galaxy Tab 7.7 belongs in an elite echelon of memorable devices -- a fraternity that's home to the likes of the older Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the ASUS Transformer Prime (GPS issues notwithstanding). Putting it bluntly, the 7.7 is the best 7-inch tablet money can buy: It performs well, offers a stunning screen and manages to deliver twice the battery life of other small tablets, despite being markedly thinner. In fact, we can't remember ever seeing a tablet this size that was so carefully designed. But here it is, and it presents the same level of quality that the 10.1, iPad 2 and Transformer Prime offer in the 10-inch category.
Really, our biggest caveat is that it's expensive, even compared to mid-range models like the $350 7.0 Plus. The 7.7 isn't a plaything for mainstream consumers, but people who care deeply about laying claim to the latest and greatest gadgets, and are willing to pay dearly for the privilege. As any early adopter would tell you, getting burned on price is just one trade-off to scoring bragging rights. Indeed, such enthusiasts might well decide that nearly $250 premium over mid-range tablets is worth the long battery life, brisk performance and brilliant display. So is that you? Do you need the best that badly? We'll let you do some soul-searching and chew on that for a bit.

There's certainly a lot to like here. The device combines fast 4G LTE speeds and a dazzling display and wraps it all up in a .03-inch chassis.Read the full review →
Samsung deserves plenty of credit for the design of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, one of the thinnest and lightest tablets on the market. However, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is ultimately hindered by Google's Android 3.2 "Honeycomb" operating system, which makes the user experience less than stellar.Read the full review →
If you’ve tried a 10-inch tablet and you find it sort of absurd, but still want a display larger than your everyday average smartphone, take a peek at this tablet at your local Verizon outlet. It’s certainly an entertaining device to play with.Read the full review →
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 has got almost everything right: it's a great size, it's lightweight, plus has terrific battery life, a fast processor, and a gorgeous display. It is Honeycomb that hampers the Tab 7.7 almost to the point of rendering it unusable at times.Read the full review →
There isn't much to not like here except perhaps for Honeycomb. Samsung's TouchWiz makes the device easier to use, but I'm looking forward to the ICS upgrade. The display is superb as is the 1.4 GHz dual-core Samsung chip. I've benchmarked it against most recent Android tablets (and my Galaxy...Read the full review →
First of all, I must mention I used to use the iPad3 and Nex7. I also use a Galaxy S3, and to tell you the truth, I have not been using my S3, iPad3 and Nex7 ever since. Though, Nex7 is quite smoother, the screen and battery life and 3G connection and everything else other than OS is much better...Read the full review →
Still the best Android tablet ever, by a longshot and possibly the best tablet ever! Samsung are shooting themselves in the foot by not making an updated version. The whole reason to have a tablet is portability and functionality and this tablet is the only one that is thin and light enough to...Read the full review →
