The Apps were easy to download and I used several of the social media ones for daily check in. When we went to the Colts/Packers game we downloaded those Apps. to check on the stats during the game. I also used Apps for the weather, grocery shopping as well as a couple of fun ones for MacchiOTTo. (Like this one App of animal sounds she like to see and listen to and we talk about farm animal noises almost daily.)
One feature I really enjoyed was the camera. This camera allows you to take photos away from you and towards you, (so you can take those self portraits if need be). The image was pretty clear as was the video portion and easy to upload to e-mail and other social media sites. Another aspect of the camera that I thought was fun was that it can take panoramic pictures. Below is an example of one we took at a fall agri-tourism attraction. The tablet would take pictures as you turned in a 180 degrees and piece them together in one large photo. I thought this was a really fun and cool! The only thing I wish the camera offered was a zoom. Even a slight zoom would be ok for those times you can't move any closer to the object you are taking a picture of.
The tablet had a USB cord to charge the battery or to download pictures from the tablet to your PC. I did find the battery life to be quite good. When using it a good portion of the day I could go about 24 hours in between charges. However when I downloaded my pictures I found that it moved a lot of additional content besides my photos to the download. I'm not quite sure why it did this and perhaps there is a way to prevent it and only download your pictures.
Overall I found the tablet to be very user friendly and would definitely recommend it for those times when you are on the go and want something less bulky than a laptop, but larger and easier to read than a smart phone.
Please note Verizon did send me a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to review for one month, but I was not compensated in anyway. All thoughts, opinions and photos shared in this post are my own.
