Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 - Expert Reviews
Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is a smart gadget. There is no doubt that the best tablet in the 7.7 inch display size tablet, is this one. Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 is available for purchase at price of Rs 33,751. There are two major advances in this tablet. The first is the Android Honeycomb operating system and the second is the ARM Cortex-A9-based dual-core processors clocked at 1.4 GHz.
The dual core processors of the device are coupled with 1 GB of RAM that makes it fast, superfast and its 7.89 mm thickness makes it immensely stylish and good looking.
Galaxy Tab 680 has packed in a super-AMOLED Plus screen and is powered by the lightning fast Exynos 4210 SoC, clocked at 1.4GHz and an ARM Mali-400MP GPU. Moreover, at 196ppi that's the highest pixel density of any tablet - it towers above the 132ppi iPad screen.
There is a 3 megapixels rear facing camera with LED flash/auto focus and a front facing 2 megapixels camera for video chats/calls. The device facilitates instant SNS sharing over Gmail and Picasa. HD (720p) video recording is supported. This remarkable device weighs just about 335 grams. It is too big to be pocketable, but it's absoultely portable.
The main highlight of Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 is its battery life but all its specs are quite impressive and it is overall worth the price.
Operating system and UI
Samsung Galaxy tab 680 comes with a 7.7 inches full touch-screen display that has used the “Super AMOLED Plus” technology with 4 way rotation. The quality of the display is supreme and the screen resolution supported is 1280 by 800 pixels with 197 ppi. The WXGA screen has superb colour reproduction and is hugely impressive in terms of viewing angle. This metallic unit is truly a portable entertainment screen, sensational, thin and portable. It’s every bit capable as larger tablets.
The dual core 1.4 GHz processors running Android 3.2 OS (Honeycomb) are layered with Samsung's latest version of TouchWiz UX user interface with multitasking & split view support. Optimisation has been done to ensure that apps designed for different sized screens look pretty okay on this one also. The OS is relatively old and haggard but since it can be upgraded to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich OS (Android 4.0), it isn’t a cause of worry at all.
There's a capability to support full HD 1080p playback as well as DivX encoded footages in Samsung Galaxy Tab 680. Users can play MP3, eAAC+, Xvid, DivX, Mpeg-4, H.264 and H.263 audio and video files over this sensational gadget. Besides, there is a variety of media players that are available on the android market place for users to download. Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 also features a 3MP camera at the back and a 2MP camera in the front.
This 7-incher offers a 3-megapixels/720p camera that flawlessly captures an impressive amount of detail in the images. The results are absolutely balanced and colors are not-too-saturated either. Zooming in on photos is neat and occurs easily by pressing a thumb on either end of the screen and titling the tablet back and forth. Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 has a nice flash too to eke out some clear shots in dim light conditions.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 supports 3G (HSPA at amazing 21 Mbps) and Wi-Fi (which can be of help in case of non-availability of 3G, GPRS/EDGE network).
There is 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, which can be increased via the microSD card slot up to 32 GB in Samsung Galaxy Tab 680. Certainly, storage will never be an issue on the Galaxy Tab 680.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 680 has sufficient key apps but the list of embedded third-party apps is limited. The Polaris Office and Pulse are wiped out and it just has Google-made apps mostly. Also on board are the Social Hub, Game Hub, Readers Hub, custom file, task and download managers. One of the app allows users to take screenshot anywhere in the OS and then doodle on it. The OS customizations over stock Honeycomb have worked out well.
A remarkable feat of retaining a 10 hour battery life is achieved on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 680. The best aspect of this tab is its battery life, thanks to the 5100 mAH battery which gives a talk time of an incredible 49 hours on 2G and 27 hours on 3G networks.
