Once again, we are taking a look at two popular 7” Android tablets, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the Google Nexus 7 by ASUS. On Monday, we asked the DroidDog followers on facebook, twitter, and Google+ what they would want to see in a comparison video. So, in this part 2 of 2, I have the two tablets go head to head with shut down and startup times, opening some apps, and quadrant standard benchmark.
This is purely my opinion, but I thought some of you may care how I feel about the two tablets. I truly think they’re both decent tablets with positives and negatives. However, I’m poor, and am all about getting bang for your buck, so I would probably suggest going with the $200 Nexus 7. That being said, I’m really impressed with the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0′s performance even if it does have the lesser hardware. Additionally, Samsung’s TouchWiz offers some useful features that would feel beneficial to most people and at the moment the Tab 2 may have more app support due to running Ice Cream Sandwich. I would honestly recommend either of these tablets to my Mom, and would suggest she would go with whichever seems a little more up her alley. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with either.
My intention in providing this video for you is so you can see the differences in the two devices, and hopefully help you make a more informed decision when purchasing a tablet. Let us know your thoughts by posting below… After today’s video, has your opinion changed at all? Which one fits your fancy more? If this was a competition, which one wins to you?
