BODY AND DESIGN
The tablet is pretty thin, and is actually lightweight. We got the white-back version which has a smooth glossy feel to it. The screen is pretty bright and you can view it even in the harshest sun and has the front 2MP camera right on top of it. On the right of the tablet there are your volume and power keys and also a small Infra-red port, on the left there are two slots, one for your SIM and one for your microSD card.
The tablet runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb and has Samsung’s TouchWiz UX UI which is its special UI for tablets. The UI is pretty much simple like every Android tablet, with five homescreens and a number of widgets to fill them up.
The OS with the UI is pretty stable and didn’t freeze or lag when we used it. The bottom bar where you have the Honeycomb buttons, there is an extra button there that lets you take a screenshot by just hitting it. Also there is a pretty handy drawer at the bottom which holds shortcuts of 5 apps and by default has your Task Manager, Calendar, World Clock, Pen Memo and Calculator.
The keyboard is pretty comfortable and provides sound and vibration feedback which is a delight. Rest is pretty much in Honeycomb flavour.
The Galaxy Tab 620 is a fun device if you love your media. It has dual cameras with pretty decent resolutions, a good music player with 5.1 channel support, a video player with supporting codecs, dual-speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack. The tablet also offers HDMI out via a connector which can attach to it charging/data port.
