Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Gets a Price Cut, Now Only P19,990

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus just got a price cut.  Samsung Mobile Philippines has announced on its Facebook page that the 7-inch tablet is now priced at P19,990, down from its previous retail price of P23,990.  That’s a discount of P4,000 which is quite huge by Philippine standards.  You can see Samsung’s announcement here.

I have always thought that the 7-inch platform is perfect for my taste and my needs.  It offers just the right amount of screen real estate, and yet it is also very portable compared to 10-inch tablets.  At its original price, I found the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus a little on the expensive side.  With the recent price cut, I am now seriously considering buying this tablet.  It has good specs and it’s also well designed.

For the price of P19,900, you get this set of specs:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (GT-P6200) Specifications

  • 7-inch PLS display with 1024×600 resolution
  • Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb
  • 1.2GHz Exynos 4210 Dual-Core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB or 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 64GB via microSD
  • 3MP rear camera
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • 3G and HSPA+ with 21Mbps speed
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • DLNA
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • GPS w/ aGPS support
  • IR port
  • 4000mAh Li-Ion battery

The 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor has gotten good reviews so in terms of performance, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus should deliver.  This is way faster than the single-core CPU of the original Galaxy Tab, and even faster than the CPU on the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1.

However – and this is a huge “however” – the iPad 2 with the lowest configuration has dropped its price to only P18,900.  This is a very competitive price, so the iPad 2 should be a consideration if you are not decided on whether to get a 7-inch tablet or a 10-inch one.  The iPad 2 still remains a good tablet despite the release of the new iPad (2012).  I have a suspicion that Samsung slashed the price of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus because of the recent price cut on the iPad 2.

Whether you should get a Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus or an iPad 2 depends on the display size you are after.  If you’re looking for a 7-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus should be a good choice.  In fact, I might just get one.


  1. Good offer! Choose a phone that fits your needs, Smartphones make lives a lot easier. It is more than just a communication tool that is why a lot of people prefer to use it over regular mobile phones.

    Good but with quadcore 7 inch around the corner id rather wait for the rumored nexus tab by asus…

    • I rarely see an iPad 2 (take note that this is the 16GB, wifi only version) being sold at below 18K, it’s usually above 22K. Seeing that this version of the GT7+ has a better processor, is HSPA+ capable, and has expandable memory, its already a steal.
