The 3-megapixel back camera honestly takes pretty crappy pictures.

Its 12 GPU cores do provide some of the best performance in an Android tablet, but for sheer horsepower it can’t beat even the iPad 2’s A5 SoC, let alone the A5X in Apple’s third tablet.

Reviews Word on the street

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1  vs Eee Pad Transformer TF300 

The Transformer Pad has a much more average display: it's reasonably bright, with super-wide viewing angles and accurate colors, but it's no more readable outside than any other tablet.
Eee Pad Transformer TF300

The screen can get plenty bright with the slider set toward max, and it has high contrast and plenty of glare (the Prime is also a glare monster).
Eee Pad Transformer TF300

The keyboard dock actually packs a smaller-capacity battery though with 15hrs instead of 16, so expect around the same overall battery life for the two combined as with the previous champion.
Eee Pad Transformer TF300

The 10.1-inch, 1280x800 screens provides a decent display for you to gorge on your favourite videos, images, games and social networks.
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

Still, if Android is your thing, the TF300's price makes it the current best value for a full-Android tablet on the market.
Eee Pad Transformer TF300

What makes things even better, the camera app is rich in modes and settings – lots of the fancy stuff a Galaxy S4 can do with its camera, the Tab PRO 8.4 can do as well.
