Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 – A review
Everyone was pretty excited about the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (renamed the Galaxy Tab 750 in India) when it launched worldwide earlier this year. Does the Galaxy Tab 750 live up to our long wait for serious competition to Apple’s iPad2?
The Tab 750 is 8.6mm thick and weighs a mere 535g. That doesn’t stop it from being one of the best tablet displays (if not the best display) available today and performance oriented hardware. Watch a lot of high-definition movies? Have no fear; Full HD video playback is here; and Samsung made sure that a wide variety of video formats are supported. The same goes for your music and the two in-built speakers on either side deliver a stereophonic listening experience.
On the communications front, you’ll find support for 3G, Wi-Fi, GPRS and Bluetooth 3.0. Finally, we move to software. The Galaxy comes with Google’s Android Honeycomb OS, and you can optionally install Samsung’s custom interface. The multitasking is good, and you’ve got a host of Google services like Samsung Hub (stay connected, download music and e-books), and Polaris Office installed out of the box. Adobe Flash support is also a plus point.
It’s fully compatible with Windows, so adding files and music is as simple as copy-paste, with no extra software required.
To sum up, it’s a really good effort but there’s much more to be desired. The interface may feel unintuitive at times; the Android isn’t as mature as the iOS, so there are a few bugs and glitches here and there. The Android marketplace has limited apps available that take advantage of a tablet’s available resources, so I’d suggest you check if the apps you require are available. Android is an open platform, so whoever knows how to write software programs may find it useful to make their own private apps. Hardware wise, Samsung really has put together a decent package, which I dare say is superior to the iPad2.
