I recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 from an importer. I have spent a full week with it and I have to say, I’m immensely impressed with the little thing. Not too long from now, when it is distributed in the U.S., consumers will be able to snatch up versions with LTE for Verizon’s LTE network. My hope, however, is that the Wi-Fi version I bought comes right after that. I’d like this because it would be priced less than a full-cost LTE version and lengthy data contracts won’t be necessary.

 

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is Samsung’s first tablet to use its Super AMOLED Plus technology, bringing vivid colors, deep blacks and super-wide viewing angles. It’s not a disadvantage either, that the 7.7 inch screen has a higher resolution than most 720p HDTV sets. The 1280 x 800 resolution is a spectacular treat for the eyes, especially when viewing high-definition videos.

Of course, a tablet needs to be good inside and out, it’s what’s inside that counts. For the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, the heart of the whole device is Samsung’s Exynos dual-core processor running at 1.4 GHz, so you know your tab’s going to be humming along nice and quickly. 
I ran quite a few benchmarks between the Galaxy Tab and several others, including the Transformer Prime, and found that the Galaxy 7.7 tests just as fast, maybe even faster.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is currently comparable to most tablets, but when it comes to gaming the Prime is better, thanks to 12 graphics cores. However, as quad-core chip optimized apps increase in number, this might change in the future.
