Since you guys liked it so much when we tore apart that GALAXY Note and S II, we decided to give the GALAXY Tab 7.7 LTE a similar teardown treatment. Weighing only 335 grams but featuring a powerful battery providing up to 10 hours of video playback time, a crisp Super-AMOLED Plus display, and lightning fast LTE mobile broadband, the Tab 7.7 LTE hits the sweet spot for a portable multimedia device. So let’s see what lies in between those 7.89 millimeters.



Touch Panel

The Tab 7.7 features greater durability thanks to touch sensing reinforced glass and to reduce thickness, a touch-screen panel (TSP) pattern is printed on the AMOLED panel.
