6 Reasons For

Samsung Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

On average Samsung tablet computers have excellent ratings compared to other brands as do all tablet computers manufactured by Samsung.

Just Released Four Months Ago

This Samsung tablet is one of the most recent tablets to be released. This means it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older tablets.

Flash Storage Medium

This tablet supports a Flash storage medium, which is the most frequently supported storage medium on recently released tablet computers.

Chart Edit

Price Has Recently Dropped by £10.00

In the last few days the price of the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has dropped by £10.00.

3G Compatible

The Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is 3G compatible, unlike most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 which are not 3G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might want to look at the SM-T561N[pl_3837374_price], the SM-T285[pl_3759460_price], or the SM-T561 Galaxy Tab E[pl_3098057_price] all from Samsung.

Quite High Battery Capacity

At 7,000 milliamperes * hour, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a quite high battery capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that are a similar age to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2. The lowest battery capacity of tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is 32mAh, the highest is 7,300mAh, and the average battery capacity is 4,800mAh.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 4G Compatible

The GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is not 4G compatible. Most of the other tablet computers that are a similar age to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 are also not 4G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 4G compatible that might be worth looking at include the Xoro 7A3 4G[plb_3540701_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution

With a rear camera resolution of only 3 megapixels, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a quite low rear camera resolution compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that were released around the same time as the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2. The rear camera resolutions of new tablet computers range from 2MP to 8MP.

If this tablet computer rear camera resolution is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Samsung 9.6[plb_3841807_price] (5MP) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Two Processor Cores

The GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is a two processor core tablet. Most of the other new tablet computers have between two and seven processor cores.

If this tablet computer has too few processor cores then you might want to consider the Samsung 9.6[plb_3841807_price] (4 processor cores) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Memory Card Size

Comparable spec tablets that were launched in the last year have maximum memory card sizes of between 32GB and 200GB. The GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a fairly small maximum memory card size (only 32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other newly released tablet computers.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

With an internal memory of only 1 gigabyte, the Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has one of the smaller internal memory amongst comparable spec tablet computers of this age. The average internal memory of tablet computers that were launched in the last year is 3.8GB, and the internal memory range from 1GB to 16GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Comparable spec tablets that were launched in the last year have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 2.5GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 1.5GHz. When compared to other new tablet computers that we have assessed, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2's processor clock speed of only 1 gigahertz is one of the slowest.

If this Samsung tablet processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Samsung 9.6[plb_3841807_price] (1.3GHz) which also has a higher rating.

2 Other reasons to consider the Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 10.1 inches, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a relatively average screen size compared to most of the other new tablet computers.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 10.1" tablets currently available including the Archos 101C[plb_3708523_price] which is cheaper.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 16 gigabytes, the Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a fairly average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2.

We compared all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets to this tablet and we think cheaper tablet computers such as the Archos 101C[plb_3708523_price] is also worth considering.
