Have a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0" / Plus? Get this!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: rooCASE Dual-View Multi Angle (Black) Folio Case Cover for Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.0 PLUS Tablet / Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 7.0 / Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7-Inch Student Edition (Personal Computers)
If you own the older Galaxy Tab 7.0" tablets, this is NOT for you because ports and jacks will NOT be in the correct locations. BUT if you own the newer Galaxy Tab 7in tabs, this case will work just fine.
The construction of this case is very well done. It feels sturdy. I can rest assured that the back of the tab won't get damaged by scratches. Only down side is I don't feel like there's enough "hard" parts, that if I were to accidentally drop it that there wouldn't be any damage. Besides protection from hardware damage, all of the ports, the IR function, microSD card access, buttons, cameras, and the Light Sensor are all available. I own the newer Galaxy Tab 2 7.0" One thing I don't like also is the speaker openings are only two little holes for each speaker, which drowns out the sound a little, but not a lot. The stand function works fine on flat surfaces. Trying to view it on the bed is a little difficult because the back of the cover that bends doesn't bend completely 90 degrees; more like 80 degrees because the leather and sew job is a little tight.
A cool feature is the case is a two in one. Once you have the Tab inside the case insert, you can actually remove it from the cover's Velcro and use it like that with just the leather case around the tab or you can re-attatch it to the cover portrait ways (see product picture). It's a very simple, but intuitive feature. The case insert is leather on the front, but the back is fabric so it can attach to the velcro. A downside to that is if you remove the tab from the cover, the underside can get dirty really easily. But I keep mine in the cover anyway.
Now I mentioned the case can be used for both the Tab 2 and Tab Plus 7.0" but ultimately it was made for the Plus model. The cut-outs are specifically aimed to accommodate the Tab 2 7.0"s rear camera's LED lights, and the front Speaker at the top of the Tab (opposite the Samsung Logo). Also the Tab Plus is a little thinner by only a couple mm, so the Tab 2 is a little more of a tighter fit. But none of those are deal breakers because the case fits perfectly fine when it comes to functionality and form.
So overall, again, this case is perfect for people looking to protect their new Galaxy Tab 7in from minor scratches on the back of their tab and want to be able to use the camera and access all of their ports and cards. It's just perfect!

Am I missing something? As far as 7" models go, I thought there was a 7.0, 7.0 Plus, and a 2 7.0. I can't find anything about a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Plus.
