Problem with the Tab 2 (I have one) is that its slow and the overlay which Samsung have put on it is unnecessarily fiddly. For example, there's a 'take screen shot' icon right next to the menu button, which is pretty stupid. The buttons are also in the wrong position (left of screen, rather than center of screen), they're not physical buttons, can disappear when you don't expect them to etc. I think that my Phone (S2) blows it out of the water for usability, functionality, and speed.
Personally, I wouldn't get either of them. I'd get the iPad Mini. It's just exceptionally good, better than the Nexus 7, amazingly thin, very light, has an excellent screen, and is also more kid friendly.
Negative and I'm not an apple hater. I own an iPhone.
The mini is not "better" than the Nexus 7.
Processor? Quad core 1.3ghz vs Dual core A5.
Memory/Ram? 1GB vs 512MB
Excellent Screen? 216ppi vs 160ppi
The big kicker, price for a 16GB? $199 vs $329(for last years tech might I add!)
iOS vs Jelly Bean? Personal preference.
Apps? Apple has more but, honestly most stuff is available on both.
vs the Samsung I'd still take the Nexus. Being a google product it gets updates sooner, has a better screen, and doesn't have any bloated software added to it(which is a huge plus.)
