Comparison 3 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

By -

Samsung has updated its range of seven-inch tablets, we mean the Galaxy Tab family. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 arrives as the new bet of the Korean manufacturer in the segment of seven inches,but with characteristics similar to medium to high, the series Note 8.0 is responsible for covering the most advanced part of the catalog. The new mini-tablet of the brand has a new design and is more compact and lighter . Also improved power and some aspects of its data sheet to be discussed later. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 gives the baton to the new model. We compare these two models to see what improvements have been introduced. We go.

Display and Design

The screen of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has been very successful and when something works well why change?. This is what I should have thought of Samsung as both models have the same panel , seven-inch TFT LCD. ‘s resolution is 1,024 x 600 pixels and density of 169 pixels per inch , suitable for a tablet of this kind. The display type is capacitive multitouch, this means that response to light touch with one or more fingers, always without us having the slightest pressure on the glass, which incidentally is scratch resistant.

The design is the aspect that has changed in the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. As expected the newcomer has taken form in the vein of more rounded and organic design that Samsung is using for about a year (when they presented the Samsung Galaxy S3). However I must say that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has a rather rectangular with slightly rounded corners. Don most noticeable difference is in the size and weight.Despite maintaining the same screen the new model has a smaller frame, the panel is set to the edges and the size has decreased, as has happened with the thickness. All this makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to be substantially lighter, the difference is about 40 grams, which is not bad.

Camera and Multimedia

The main chamber of these two models remains the same decision, namely three-megapixel. might seem to be a somewhat sparse settings but do not forget that a tablet is not a computer designed to take pictures, in this sense are more than three-megapixel enough to take pictures of good quality and a decent size. The two have autofocus and allow recording HD video , or what is the same, with a size of 1,280 x 720 pixels and a frequency of 30 frames per second. Where do see differences is in the chamber at the front of the chassis, which is used to make video calls . The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has a front sensorVGA , which translates into insufficient 0.3 megapixels. The new model has a camera of 1.3 megapixelsfor our video conferences are much sharper.

How could it be otherwise, both tablets offer a varied media profile as far as formats are concerned, can play almost any video file, audio or images. They also have the standard DLNA allows us to duplicate the display on a TV or monitor ready for this technology, all without using cables.

Power, memory and operating system

The power has also improved with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, although it does so discreet and just a few tenths increases the processor frequency. Talk about a chip dual core 1.2 gigahertz, supported by one Gb of RAM ensures smooth and seamless task. For its part, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 processor has adual-core one gigahertz and also has one GB of RAM . The difference will be virtually nil in the management but you may notice the use of games that demand more system resources.

The internal memory of  Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 varies by model, there are three options for eight, 16 or 32 GB respectively. The  Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 versions will be available in eight or 16 GB capacity,the 32 GB is left on the road but to make up includes a slot for MicroSD up to 64 GB bonus (the previous model only supports cards of 32 GB as maximum).

Samsung has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab series 3 will Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, one of the latest installments of Google and has advantages such as the wizard Google Now or performance improvement Butter Project . The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 out of the box with A ndroid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, however there are no differences at this point because this model has started to receive the update brings the version of the jelly bean. As good Android, both have a battery of functions that Google includes in its devices. We talked about YouTube, Gmail, Gtalk, Google Maps, Google Latitude, Google Navigation, Picasa and more.

Connectivity and autonomy

We continue with the similarities, in this case as to the connections. Both are available in a version that only has WiFi and other connectivity features also 3G (HSPA + at 21 Mbps), obviously the price varies between them. It is imperative to mention that both models offer the ability to be used as a phone, but obviously this feature is only available in versions with 3G connection. In addition they also have Wi-Fi Direct, a system that enables communication between Wi-Fi devices without an intermediate focal point, is very useful for fast file transfer. On the other hand could not miss the port Bluetooth 3.0, antenna GPSsatellites compatible with Glonass and the aforementioned standard DLNA multimedia section focused.Physical connections are classic, we mean the port MicroUSB connector and minijack for headphones or external speakers.

Once again Samsung has opted to include a battery of the same capacity on both models. The  Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 , with battery of 4,000 milliamps, hold on between 45 and 49 days when at rest .Autonomy in use ranges from 20 to 40 hours, depends if you use 2G or 3G connection. The new model has a battery capacity and therefore identical official times be very near term these figures may slightly below because it carries a slightly more powerful processor.

Conclusions

Samsung has revamped its seven-inch Galaxy Tab but has chosen to maintain a technical profile with subtle improvements. 3 The Samsung Galaxy Tab desaca especially for its design , more compact, lighter and more attractive appearance. Timidly forward also in the frequency of its processor , but it is still committed to the dual core formula. The front camera is another point that needed improvement and has had VGA resolution up to 1.3 megapixels.
