Overall: I bought this tab the next day of its release which was 31st December from other site on 1st Jan . I was just surfing for new tablets and phones and as soon as I found this, I was simply amazed by its specs.... The dual core a9 processor, the 1 gb ram, 8 inch screen with 1024*768 resolution and the list went on.. As I already own a Atrix HD I did not need this for calling.... Now after around 3 weeks of rigorous usage I am writing this review.... It's score on AnTuTu is higher even than SGS2 at 9216 while SGS2 has a score of 8463....
Coming to Pros and Cons...
1. 1.5 GHz Dual Core Cortex A9 Processor (the same which is in SGS2)
2. 1GB RAM (all other tabs in this range have 512MB
3. Dual Core Mali-400 GPU
4. 8 inch screen with high 1024*768 resolution with capacitive touch
5. Jelly Bean 4.1.1
6. High Capacity 4500 mAh battery
7. 3.15 MP Primary Cam with a VGA Secondary Cam
8. App Compatibility is very high (contrary to beliefs that 4:3 screens have low compatibility)
9. High scores in benchmarks.
10. Handled every game and tasks well (I played the latest NFS Most Wanted on it without any hiccup)
11. USB OTG Support and Mini-HDMI Support (it even supports my 1 TB Seagate Backup Plus)
12. 1080p videos play like butter in MX Player.
1. Touch is somewhat finicky
2. The Primary 3.15 MP Cam disappoints.
3. It is quite heavyc4. Only 1.51 GB of internal storage (although it can be expanded via SDCard)
5. Screen is quite reflective in bright sunlight
Also I have rooted my tab and those complaining about internal memory (or internal sd card) not being expendable, they are false as the external sd card can be swapped with internal sd card but this method only works after rooting. After this you can install any large game or app. The link for the procedure is http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2105692
