Might not be to everyone's taste, but thought I'd share this one.

Been looking for a decent, but cheap-ish, tablet for the other half and came across this Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Wifi

Yeah, it's a bit older and not as up to date as more recent tablets, but looks to be not bad for the price.

Had a brief look on t'internet and it can be upgraded to Android Jelly Bean

Tab 7.7 the best tablet Samsung have made. Ive got the 3g version and its great

i put the 32gb/3g model as new deal but that's available too at £199

It's easy to get lost with the way they name them, soon full list of the models will look like this:

Galaxy Tab

x; x.1 ; x.2 ; x.3 ; x.3 ; x.4 ; x.5 ; x.6 ; x.7 ; x.8 ; x.9

then replace x with any number from 7 to 10

link not working?

is it instore only?

Still the best tablet available IMO, I use mine every day.

Am seriously tempted by the 32GB 3G version for £199.

Agree, mine is 18 months old and still beats the current competition (especially the screen) , but I wish they would update the OS

I would say so. The nexus is faster/smoother with much better specs and has a much better 1080p screen. Not to mention stock android >> touchwiz.

This is still a great deal though. Its just that nexus pricing has spoiled us now.

Ppl should check this out in a store .... I get an instant headache looking at the screen ... Not too sure why??

In it's day this was an amazing tablet - that was never officially launched in the UK (so you could only buy grey imports).
By todays standard though the spec is pretty low - and Samsung do a much more up todate galaxy Tab 3 8inch model, which is dearer though.

Likely an allergy to Amoled technology.

If this was the 3g version I would've bought it. U can make calls on the 3g version

Yes, it was so far ahead of it's time when it came out and is only now becoming closer to 'mid-range'. That AMOLED display is just amazing on a tablet and, surprisingly, for Samsung there is real metal (!) on the back of it rather than that horrible faux brushed plasti-metal stuff they use on the Galaxy S4, etc.

OS-wise, mine officially let me put 4.0.4 on it.

Excellent screen i must say. The AMOLED screen blows every other screen i have seen. Movies are just wonderful on this and also due to the increased size over the 7 inch tablets. Battery life is also good due to AMOLED. Note that once you are used to this screen all other screen will look dull though

if it weren't for buying the Note 8.0 in the summer I'd be all over the 32GB with 3G.

I made an account just to comment here.

This is NOT a good deal, source: I am an Android app developer.

For less money you should be able to find a 2012 Nexus 7 which is a far superior device. To the person asking about the 2013 Nexus 7... it's just no comparison. If you held the two in your hands you would understand.

Don't waste your money on this has-been. I wouldn't pay £50 for it.

"Source: I am an Android app developer."

What? That doesn't even make sense!

Missed the 3g version so ordered wifi great deal

As I posted in the other thread, if you love AMOLED screens, this will still be preferable to the 1200p screen in the Nexus 7, plus the screen is 0.7 inches bigger.

I agree the 7.7 is in a class on it's own. I have seen this tablet up close and can confirm that build quality is iPad level... simply amazing. The screen is spectacular... as only screen res does not a great screen make. OLED technology is the future and this tablet is a great example of that. I'm sure Samsung will return to making OLED tablet screen soon again. I only wish this was the 32GB version as 16GB built in is not that much anymore. The MicroSD card ready is only good for 32GB more (it appears to be too old to see the newer 64GB MicroSD cards). Real shame. (and the 32GB 3G version is now out of stock)

agree with iRomek BUT it appears that TOSHIBA make a QUAD CORE AMOLED 7.7 tablet, high end spec, with same Samsung screen, its called the AT270 or EXCITE 7.7 , because really there is no substitute for OLED screen ( aka AMOLED ) , its great to see Toshiba make a high end tablet ( with superb build quality from what Ive read ) and its super fast too, latest Tegra 3, + micro sd slot, again, it WAS PRICEY around £ 380 when it came out, but Ive seen them on the web for around £ 200 NEW, which is again a serious bargain, high end hardware with state of the art AMOLED screen,

really £ 150 for the tab 7.7 is a bargain, an extra £ 50 gets you latest quad core etc from Toshiba, and ICS , so at least we have some choices on the AMOLED tablet, Amoled is a hellovalot pricier to make then a LCD screen, but its so superior that you wont want to use a LCD after seeing Amoled, basically OLED has no back light, result, proper blacks, proper contrast, easy on the eyes, and no washed out images,

OH and the pixel response from Oled / amoled is 1000s of times faster than LCD, so ZERO motion blur

amoled / oled is the future, but right now at these prices, the tab or excite offer fantastic value for money, the tosh especially as its very very fast and has been reviewed as the best tablet ever made to date,. period.



You writing about toshiba tablet 7.7 and its fast processor but you must mention battery life as well. I read some reviews saying that battery life is 60% shorter than samsung one! Yes 4 hours against 10! This is massive difference for me and i would buy samsung just because this.

Hi I've just ordered on of these 16GB 7.7" tabs and reading these comments here people seem to suggest these are not 3g aswell as wifi but on the carphone warehouse description under features it states this has the ability to make and receive calls so it must be 3g.
Has anyone actually ordered one and received it yet? because if it does not take a sim its going back.

come on man, what is wrong with you, this is wifi version, better don't pick up because 100% you won't be able to use SIM in there, 3G version was sold out,

The carphone warehouse description does state it will make calls so I've took a screen shot so an easy refund if they have it incorrectly advertised.

Like I said I only ordered it a few hours ago, Carphone warehouse delivery is not that quick

OK, let's hoping it's a 3g version.

I hope so too.
I don't see why it it won't be considering the 32gb version was £50 more expensive and that was defo 3g so the price difference should make up for the lower capacity.
The description also states you can use the 3g conection as a mobile hotspot as in most 3g devices.

before the 32gb 3g version gone out of stock, I have checked it. It shows no voice calls. however, the 16gb wifi shows make and receive calls.

My tablet was delivered today and I can confirm it does not have a sim slot as I feared but hoped it might have because of the Carphone warehouse description saying it makes and receives calls.
I'm returning it today because of this but if buyers are not concerned about the sim slot I would defo recommend buying one as its a beautiful bit of kit.
