Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus User Review


It’s been 2 weeks since I had been using the review unit of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus as my primary tablet.

Previously, I posted about my first impression of the tablet here, where I covered the physical hardware and overview of this 7 incher tablet from Samsung.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus is actually the successor of the very popular original 7 incher (where I’ve also reviewed here). However, this new version is very much upgraded in a lot of ways.

Amongst the key differentiators of this new Tab 7 Plus vs original Galaxy Tab include:-

  • Thinner (9.96mm vs 12mm)
  • Lighter (345g vs 380g)
  • Tablet optimised OS (Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS vs Smartphone Android 2.2 Froyo OS)
  • More powerful processor (Dual Core 1.2GHz vs SIngle core 1GHz)…and much more

Here’s my video review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus; covering a quick overview, my top likes and dislikes, summary and recommendations, pricing and availabilities of the tablet in Malaysia.


As mentioned in the video, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus is available for sale now in Malaysia for the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of RM 1,699 at various Samsung and retail outlets. There are also operator subsidized plans where you can purchase the tablet at a lower price, provided you signup with their voice + data plans:-

  • U Mobile : RM 999 onwards (check out U Mobile’s plans here)
  • DiGi : RM 1,049 onwards (check out DiGi’s plans here)
  • Celcom : RM 1,188 onwards (check out Celcom’s plans here)

In conclusion, I really REALLY like the tablet. The biggest selling point to me (and a lot of my other friends, including some iPhone users) is that the size is PERFECT for mobility and travel.

I just wish they were selling the version with the grey / brushed metal backing here instead of the glossy white version.
