But this isn't really that bad, since the display is very bright, has natural colors, and still manages to present us with some pretty decent viewing angles.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus


7.0
Due to the fast dual-core processor of 1.2GHz and the way Honeycomb is written, basic navigation is comfortable, with smooth scrolling and flawless Flash Player performance.

7.0
The lens was even pretty adept at taking macro shots.

6.0
Inside the tablet, you'll find 16GB of internal storage for apps, movies, music, and more, and it's all powered by a dual-core 1.2 Ghz processor, with performance (as detailed later) highly dependent on the Android version installed.

Overall

7.2 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

If the real estate is enough for you though, we believe Samsung's PLS-LCD screen will do well in delivering some eye-pleasing visuals.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)
In fact, the top- and bottom-edge navigation was a lot easier to get to on a display this size than the larger Honeycomb tablets.
by The Verge (Nov, 2011)
But the upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich really smoothed over the laggy movements between home screens and menus, making it feel almost like a brand new tablet.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2012)

Operating System

Slimmer, sleeker, and powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the 7.0 Plus fits right at home with its larger-screened contemporaries.
by The Verge (Nov, 2011)
For Android tablet lovers, however, Samsung has made its lower tier competitive again.
by The Verge (Nov, 2011)
Obviously it wasn't, but could this Android tablet be a great iPad alternative?
by The Verge (Nov, 2011)

Apps

Not too much added value here with these mini-apps, but as long as their presence doesn't bog down the interface speed, we can live with them.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)
Core apps like Contacts, Calendar and Music Player have also been customized in order to have a more from-this-world appearance and feel.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)
It also includes a “Mini Apps” tray for commonly used features such as task manager, calendar, and music player.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2011)

Operating system

Honeycomb is a pretty strong tablet OS, while Samsung's TouchWiz UX interface is taking the important step of making it look more open to the masses.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)
We started using the 7.0 Plus with Android 3.0: Honeycomb installed, and initially found the menus quite sluggish – a classic Android complaint, especially for nearly year-old hardware.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2012)
When it comes to the software that's pre-loaded, we really can't complain.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)

Camera

The 3-megapixel rear camera won't replace your point-and-shoot or even a nicer smartphone, but provided you hold steady, you can get some decent stills.
by The Verge (Nov, 2011)
Tablets aren't meant to be used as everyday cameras, which is part of the reason why most lag behind their smartphone equivalents in lens quality.
by TechRadar (Sep, 2012)
Turning our attention to the rear of the tablet, we’re again seeing it sporting the same 3.2-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash used by its siblings.
