The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus features a 7" LCD touch screen, measures one third of an inch thick and weighs less than a lbd.
The design is smaller and lighter than the Kindle Fire and Nook Color.
There's a fake metallic plastic back.
The only physical buttons are the power and volume buttons on the side.
There Galaxy Tab 7.0 plus includes a built-in speaker, mic and audio jack on the top.
The micro SD card on the side is expandable up to 32 GB.

The screen isn't as crisp as the super AMOLED screens we've seen on other Samsung devices.

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 was fast compared to other Android devices: it has 1 GB of RAM and a 1.2 dual core processor.
You can load websites with flash and apps/games boot quickly.
The battery life is really good for a tablet this size and should last you 8 hours of constant viewing while connected to wi-fi.
The front and rear cameras were mediocre at best.
The 3 megapixel rear camera images looked soft and grainy while the 2 megapixel front camera was good enough for video conferencing.
The 720P video looked good.
The Peel Smart Remote app was a cool feature allows you to use the tablet as a guide and remote.
Normally you'd have to purchase the $99 remote blaster to use the app but the tablet's IR sensor syncs to your TV and cable box, becoming a giant remote.
