3.0 out of 5 stars Marred by poor battery perfomance, 26 Sep 2013
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7inch Tablet - White (8GB, WiFi, Android 4.0) (Personal Computers)
An excellent tablet in every respect but one - the battery. If you are intending to use this as a replacement for a kindle, then be aware that reading a book will give you a couple of hours use. Watching a video - about the same. Even setting the screen to the dimmest possible level does not significantly improve things.
So if (like me) you were hoping to use it throughout a long-haul flight (as I do my kindle) you can forget it.
What a pity that while technology leaps ahead, batteries lag so very far behind.

I totally agree. A good product, marred by the underperforming battery. 2 hours battery life makes a mockery of "portability". Like a laptop, you always need to be conscious of the next power source. In some situations, after 100% charging, it will tell you there are 17 hours of use left before the next recharge. I believe this will be 17 hours with the tablet switched to off.
