TechRadar Reviews the Samsung Galaxy Tab

James Rivington:

So let’s get this out of the way right off the bat — the Galaxy Tab is not as slick as we were hoping it would be. In fact, it’s not slick at all.

Despite the 1Ghz processor, there are some significant performance issues here and in many cases they hamper the usability and performance of the Tab to treacherous levels.

The problems are most evident when browsing the web. Scrolling down your average website is quite juddery. The smoothness of the iPad is nowhere to be seen, and our fingers had often swiped and left the screen before the device responded and began to scroll.

Runs hot and gets poor battery life to boot. (Via Matt Gemmell.)
