Need help....!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 from AT&T and there's a deal where I can get $200 off the $399 Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE variant.
The LTE version unlike the normal one has a 1.5 ghz krait processor compared to the 1ghz processor on the normal one. I'm very picky about lag and such and will be mainly using this tablet for gaming, youtube, ocn, and word processing. Is this tablet worth my $199? I have to get a data plan with it by the way. thumb.gif

I would say it is well worth the $199. The 1ghz or 1.5ghz processor will be more than adequate for a good experience. You can always install a custom ROM in the future if the device begins to get sluggish and that will breathe new life into the tablet.

as for the OP's questions,

I think $199 yeah, it's worth it. I agree with the above poster that rooting and roming it will bring a new life to the tablet. i have my S3 rooted and custom roms on it and is amazing.

please keep us up to date on your decisions and post pics of you new tech and mods smile.gif

Only worth it if you actually want the data plan. Otherwise, that's an additional $720 ($30/3GB) over the course of 2 years for a $200 discount on the device.

So I'm guessing that'll be an extra $10/month for the tablet? Go for it then.
