Just like the original WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), the LTE version of the tablet also offers plastic construction and all-black appearance. It has the same 7” 1024 x 600 display, which translates into 170ppi of pixel density. The PLS LCD panel delivers great off-axis viewing angles and natural-looking colors. However, users may have problem viewing the interface under direct sunlight.
Unlike the original mode, the LTE variant comes with the faster 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 S4 dual-core processor, though it still has the same 1GB of RAM. The tablet gets a benchmark score of 4211 with Quadrant Standard, compared to the Wi-Fi version at only 2750.
LTE support is the most noteworthy addition to the tablet, which allows users to obtain online experience at its fullest.
The capability is optimized to Verizon’s network, which can easily reach 3.62Mbps upload and 12.04Mbps download speeds during peak hours. Surfing the web is more convenient with the useful browser, which includes pinch-to-zoom, tap-to-zoom and tabbed browsing.
