Features and Performance
The Galaxy Tab 2 310 is powered by a Ti OMAP Dual-core 1GHz processor, it has 16GB of user memory and 1GB of RAM. The device runs on Samsung’s TouchWiz UI atop Android 4.0. Honeycomb has been ditched for good measure and Samsung has got a few cool features to the table. A universal bar at the bottom lets you immediately access your most used apps. The widgets on the homescreen haven’t changed much, but why replace something that’s not broken? The interface is vibrant and the PLS TFT display is bright and clear, though not of the AMOLED variety. Under full brightness, it’s visible under direct sunlight.
Coming back to the interface, TouchWiz is both functional and lag free, which is a big plus. It may not be as beautiful as the other custom interfaces, but it more than makes up with the numerous customizations and tweaks.
We managed to throw a couple of benchmarks at the Tab 2 310 and here’s how it fared. Sunspider gave it a score of 2268.6ms, while browser mark gave it a score of 88751. Linpack placed it under the Prime, at a score of 37 points in single thread and 58 points in the multi thread. The device got a Quadrant score of 2370 and an AnTuTu score of 5319 points. It’s quite a mixed bag out here really, but in the real world, the Galaxy Tab 2 310 is a pretty fast device. Multitasking has been well taken care of and the device only had momentary hiccups. Overall, it’s powerful enough to take care of your needs.
Like the 620, the Tab 2 310 is a powerful media device. Right from the interface to the media codec support, Samsung has everything pretty well covered. The device supports FLAC files and is DivX HD certified. The interface is well thought of and lets you quickly arrange your music and media files neatly. We tested the audio using our test headphones and it is, in one word, awesome. The added microSD card support lets you expand your range of media collection, something that wasn’t a part of the other bigger tablets. The device has DLNA support as well, so you can stream to a DLNA compatible TV by simply pressing a button.
The music interface
Powerful media player
Even though it may not have been treated with some super AMOLED goodness, the 310 has a good enough display for personal viewing and it makes for a good portable media player. Also as part of the media department are the inbuilt Video maker and photo editor apps. The Video maker, in particular does help you make some cool movies on the move. To sum it up, Samsung has given this section the A+ treatment.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is the only new 10.1-inch Android tablet to launch this year. And with no one to contend against, it is commanding a substantial premium in the market. This is not any run-of-the-mill tablet, though. The care and polish delivered by Sony is simply brilliant as we’ll see in a bit.
