The Android Tablet Experience on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7

Donovan Colbert from Tech Republic explains why the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has the most comparable Android tablet experience to an iPad.

It’s been almost a year since Samsung shocked everyone when they declared that their Galaxy Tab 10.1 was “inadequate” compared to the iPad 2. Since then, Apple and Samsung have been in a global legal battle.

I spent a week with the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy 7.7 tablet, and it’s clear why Apple has targeted Samsung with such ferocity. The similarities between the Galaxy 7.7 and the iPad start with the box the device comes in, and they don’t end there.

What I like:

The build quality of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is probably the most iPad-like Android experience so far. If you’re put off by cheap plastic and the bulkiness of other Android tablets, and you really wish Apple had a 7″ iPad, this may be the best solution on the market. It’s Kindle-thin and dripping with quality construction.
