Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 - Screen and Interface

Sections

After the slim and lightness of this tablet, its next best trick is its

screen. Despite being only 7.7in it packs in a whopping 1,024 x 768

pixels making for incredibly sharp images. It’s an OLED panel too so has

superb viewing angles and intense colours. We still have a few

reservations about the color accuracy of OLED panels but when they’re

otherwise this good, we can’t really complain.

Inside, there’s a 1.4GHz dual core CPU running the show. The tablet felt

reasonably fast but it wasn’t completely lag free, though we suspect

this may have been down to the demo units having lots of things running at once. You also get 64GB of internal

storage, which is plenty to be getting on with, even without adding a

microSD card.

Samsung has given the interface its usual TouchWiz interface tweaks

which include modifying the look of the keyboard and the layout of the

icons on the homescreen, and the addition of some widgets and Samsung

apps. These include the SocialHub for bringing together all your social

networks and the Samsung App store, neither of which were properly setup

so we can’t really make any judgement.

For the most part, though, the interface is typical Android 3.2, with a

great web browser, email client and plenty of apps in the MarketPlace.

If recent Samsung history is anything to go by, the video playback

support will be class beating as well.

Overall, while the lack of microUSB is a concern and the build isn’t

quite as solid as an iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7in is nevertheless a

seriously impressive tablet. If you’re looking for a smaller

alternative to the 9in and 10in tablet, this looks to be the pick of the

bunch.
