Hardware and Design :
Galaxy Tab 750 looks very attractive and sexy. At 256.7×175.3×8.6mm measurement Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 is world’s lightest and thinnest 10 inch tablet pc. 8.6 mm thickness makes this 0.2 mm thinner than Apple iPad 2. Handling the Tab for longer time is easy thanks to 565gm weight. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is mostly build up with plastic, there is only metal in the sides of the Tab. It does not have the metallic feeling of iPad but use of plastic made it 35gm lighter than iPad 2. Overall the build quality is very good.
There are no hardware buttons at the front, only 2 mega pixel front camera and light sensor are present. Screen is protected from accidental scratches by Gorilla glass. There are two speakers at the both side of the Tab for surround sound effect.
At the top there are two buttons- power key and volume up & down key. SIM card slot is present at the top along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Galaxy Tab uses standard SIM card not micro SIM which is used in iPad 2.
There is a 30 pin connector at the bottom side of the tab, which is used for charging, PC connectivity, attaching accessories etc. It supports USB host mode using a adapter which comes within the package. We can directly connect may USB devices like USB flash drive, memory card reader, external hard disk drive, keyboard, mouse etc. with the help of adapter.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has wide-screen PLS LCD screen with 1280×800 resolution. The screen size is 10.1 inch so the pixel density PPI( Pixels Per Inch) is 149. The screen is bright, clear, sharp and colors looks vivid.
Viewing angle is great and we didn’t face and problem using it under direct sunlight. Watching videos and photos on Galaxy Tab will be a pleasing experience. The screen uses capacitive touch screen technology, so it is very touch sensitive. Multitouch gestures works without any problem in gallery, browser, games etc.
Performance and Benchmark:
Review will be incomplete without synthetic benchmarks so we run many popular benchmarks. Samsung Galaxy Tab has 1GHz Nividia Tegra 2 processor coupled with 1GB RAM so good benchmark score is expected.

The music player has equalizer settings and virtual 5.1 channel surround sound options to further enhance music listening experience.
The deafult video player can play both 720p and 1080p HD videos without any problem. HD videos looks awesome on the gorgeous screen. Galaxy Tab 750 played most of the videos which we tried. It can play DivX/XviD videos upto FullHD resolution without any problem. Unfortunately there is no support for MKV video format. But this problem can be solved by using some 3rd party video players like Dice Player. Galaxy Tab 750 can be a great portable video player as it can play video upto 9 hours on single charge.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system with Samsung Touch Wiz UX. The user interface looks attractive and easy to use. Touch Wiz UX brings some enhancements to the stock Honeycomb experience.

Camera interface is easy to use and has plenty of settings to tweak photos. Galaxy Tab 750 can record 720p HD videos at smooth 30fps with good details and sound.
