There are two speakers, both of which are loud enough to share a video with your friend sitting next to you. Powered by a massive 7000mAh battery, it will give you enough power to easily last you few days of heavy use. Keep in mind that there are two models in Tab 2 range – first is this and second is Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet which also works as a phone.
