Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) LTE is a decent quality device released in 2012, with a good performance 1200 megahertz Dual-Core processing unit, a 7 inches multi touch display, a 3.2 MP back-facing camera and a 0.3 MP front facing camera.

This tablet is equipped with a fast 1200 megahertz Dual-Core processor, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 chip and 1 GB of RAM. Graphic intensive apps usually consume lots of CPU cycles, so this tablet uses an extra Adreno 225 graphics processing unit running at 400 MHz to unload the CPU. A nice advantage of this device is its quite big 8 GB internal storage and an external memory card slot, allowing the user to install a couple hundred games and applications without worrying about space.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) LTE is a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 12.2 ounces. This device is a very compact tablet, considering it presents a 7" display and it's only 7.63" long and 4.82" wide. While this device is quite thin and comfortable it's not close to being one of the thinnest tablets on sale, with a thickness of 0.41 inches.

The Tab 2 (7.0) LTE is equipped with two cameras, a 3.2 megapixels back facing camera and a 0.3 MP front-facing camera. It is also able to film videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 30 fps.

This tablet is equipped with an average 600 x 1024 7-inches display, making everything look quite colorful and brightful. Its display uses Super PLS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This tablet counts with WiFi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high performance internet connection or 3G internet connection, supported by EV-DO A technologies. This tablet doesn't have a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM services and it can connect to CDMA networks.

The Tab 2 (7.0) LTE also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other tablets, computers and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) LTE features an incredible 4000 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery providing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) LTE an impressive battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this device's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to last shorter, even though with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new tablet before that becomes a real problem.

Samsung offers the Tab 2 (7.0) LTE for about 130 dollars, which is similar to other same level tablets. No matter whether you are looking for a social tablet, will use this tablet for work or are looking for a gaming tablet, you will definitely be very pleased with this device.
