Ultimate device for those who want budget cuts, huge screen, Android version above 4.0 and a tablet with phone facility.The best device to select if you are going for a touch device which has Android versions above 4.0 or 4.1. This could become your best companion and replace the cluttered desk and can be used as a replacement for a laptop or a netbook.I use it instead of a laptop for heavy-duty work always there is accessories like the wireless/bluetooth keyboards.

I bought this device because the price was right ($169 at Costco) even though I already have a Google Nexus 7. I sort of wanted to compare the two (plus having another device on-hand for Android development testing). I like the idea of the IR blaster, but it wasn't working for me out-of-the-box as a Universal Remote. Optimistic that I can get it working. It was able to turn on and off my devices, but not able to use their channel browsing app. As an avid iPad user, I find the Android interface to be quite a bit clunky, but for the price, you really can't beat this device.

I feel that the Tab 2 is a strong competitor in the 7 inch tablet market for a few key reasons. 1. It has JellyBean. which give it more usability. 2. It has a great design and is not very heavy. 3. The price is awesome. I bought this for $179 which is quite a steal for a good 7 inch tablet.

Had the device two days, but very easy to set up. I find it very nice and responsive. Only issues I have (very minor): The camera on the back seems to be where I want to rest one of my fingers when holding it. A little bigger than my shirt pocket, but that maybe a good thing meaning I don't drop it. Shop around, you can find a great deal on this item, I got mine under $149 Cdn. I got the 8G as plan to put in a SD card as I have a tonne of them.

I`m a new owner of this TAB 2 7.0 - a short list of points will be written in the near future, detailed, with the response of the product and the feeling that I got regarding it.
