4 Reasons For

Samsung Has Excellent Tablet Reviews

Tablets built by Samsung have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all tablets (not just tablets) and found that Samsung also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Flash Storage Media

This tablet supports a Flash storage media, which is the most commonly supported storage media on tablets that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Only Released Six Months Ago

This tablet is one of the most recent tablet computers to be released. As such it is likely to use better technology than some of the older tablet computers.

Quite High Battery Capacity

With a battery capacity of 7,000 milliamperes * hour, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has one of the higher battery capacitys amongst tablets of this age. Tablet computers that have been around for a similar time to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 have battery capacitys of between 12mAh and 9,300mAh.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is not 4G, although keep in mind that most of the other new tablets are also not 4G.

Tablet computers which are 4G that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo 3 8[plb_4016217_price] which is also higher rated.

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

The average rear camera resolution (numeric) of recently released comparable spec tablets is 810MP. At only 3 megapixels, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a fairly low rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablets that came out around the same time as the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available including the Samsung GT-P5110[plb_3776483_price] which is cheaper.

Tablets with a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) that might be worth considering include the SM-T561N[pl_3837374_price] (5MP and cheaper), or the SM-T580[pl_3831286_price] (8MP and cheaper) both from Samsung; or the Lenovo 3 8[plb_4016217_price] (8MP and higher rated).

Only Two Processor Coress

The Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is a two processor cores tablet.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 2 processor cores tablet computers and we think the Samsung GT-P5110[plb_3776483_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want more processor coress then you might also want to consider the SM-T561N[pl_3837374_price] (4 processor coress and cheaper), or the SM-T580[pl_3831286_price] (8 processor coress and cheaper) both from Samsung or the Lenovo 3 8[plb_4016217_price] (4 processor coress and higher rated).

Very Small Maximum Memory Card Size

With a maximum memory card size of only 32 gigabytes, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a quite small maximum memory card size compared to most of the other latest tablets. The average maximum memory card size of tablets that are a similar age to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is 110GB, and the maximum memory card sizes range from 32GB to 200GB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a fairly small internal memory (only 1 gigabyte) compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec tablet computers. The smallest internal memory of tablets that have been available for around the same time as the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is 1GB, the largest is 16GB, and the average internal memory is 3.9GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

At only 1 gigahertz, the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 has a fairly slow processor frequency compared to most of the other recently released tablets. The average processor frequency of tablets that are a comparable age to the GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 is 1.5GHz, and the processor frequencys range from 1GHz to 2.5GHz.

We compared this tablet to all the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablet computers and we think the Samsung GT-P5110[plb_3776483_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this Samsung tablet computer processor frequency is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo 3 8[plb_4016217_price] (1.3GHz and higher rated) or the SM-T561N[pl_3837374_price] (1.3GHz and cheaper), or the SM-T580[pl_3831286_price] (1.6GHz and cheaper) both from Samsung.
