Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus review

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is equipped with a built-in 4000mAh Lithium Ion battery, which proves pretty capable, offering about eight solid hours of use via a mix of web browsing, apps, and media usage.

Your mileage will no doubt vary based on what you use the tablet for, and variables like high brightness and heavy downloads or streaming will zap the battery a little quicker, but we found it comparable to seven-inch competitors.


Unlike the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, which offers only 8GB of storage in order to maintain its slim price point, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus ships with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. We reviewed the former configuration.

Additionally, the device includes a micro SD port on the left side that accommodates cards of up to 32GB, letting you expand out the storage as desired.

It's a key feature missing from the likes of the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire, making this a friendlier option for those with large media libraries, as well as folks who want to tote around quite a bit of content when not in range of Wi-Fi.
