The Galaxy Tab P620 is a big boy from Samsung, just similar to its predecessor cousin. The looks are capable of leaving you spell bound at the very first instance. The flush front is beautified by black borders around the display. The front and the rear bottom house a Samsung logo. The glossy white rear panel makes the tab appear even classier, however making it a little prone to smudges and dirt fingerprints. The body of this tab is made by using poly carbonate plastic, which in turn makes it strong and lightweight. However, the plastic casing of the tab may start discoloring after a while, but this does not solely means it is of bad quality.
The 7 inch display of this tablet is capable of giving a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. The density of display is quite impressive and is somewhere near 170 pixels per square, thereby providing extreme clarity of text and visuals. As far as color reproduction is concerned, the display is not as vibrant as the AMOLED displays of other Galaxy smart phones, but there are also no complaints regarding the same. The touch is quite accurate and responsive, especially while using touch sensitive functions, which make it an ideal choice of many.
The Galaxy Tablet P620 is powered by Exynos 4210 Dual Core 1.2 GHz Processor, combined with an enormous 1 GB RAM. This makes gaming as well as multitasking quite easy and apps open up without any lag. The internal storage of 16 GB makes it a storehouse of a good number of things. This can be further expanded to 64 GB through SDHC card. The tab houses a 2 megapixel front camera for easy video calling and 3 megapixel rear camera with in-built flash for the shutterbugs.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the device flawlessly connects through Wi-Fi and 3G. Standard SIM slot makes it easy to connect it through GSM networks. Bluetooth 3.0 is quite impressive for wireless connectivity. However, it drains a good amount of battery along with Wi-Fi and 3G. USB and HDMI slots are also available for advanced connectivity.
The main highlighting feature of this Tab is the amazing battery backup to power up gaming, audio, video, web browsing and calling features. The 4000 mAh battery is capable of providing a good amount of backup to the Tab.
The Samsung Galaxy P620 is a great device with superb performance and is ideally made for the people who wish to enjoy the benefits of a cell phone along with the features of a notebook.
With the world going digital, people make use of highly advanced gadgets and hi-tech apps in order to perform almost every possible task. This advancement has led to an increased need of one step solution to get loads of information or fetch any other thing through the cell phone. Quick Response Code, or better familiar as QR code, is one of the most amazing innovations in the present day smartphone era. These kinds of codes allow the users to fetch loads of info related to almost anything simply by pointing the camera of their smartphones at the QR code and scanning the same.
The benefits of this technological innovation are not only reaped by the smart phone users, but also the major companies have started to make use of the QR codes for their promotional as well as informational activities.

Therefore, here we will review one such app that has made this scanning process quite effective and 100% safe.
The Norton Snap QR Reader is a wonderful and extremely helpful app for the Android OS users. This app not only helps in easy scanning of the QR codes but also protects your device from viruses or heading towards useless web pages. This application provides a comprehensive solution to the problem of illicit activities associated with QR codes. This simple QR code scanner is coupled with the advantage of Norton anti-virus program. This application allows the users to become aware of the page they are going to access through the code.
In comparison to the normal QR scanner apps, the Norton Snap is pretty fast and accurate. This application snaps the code for further processing, rather than keeping the camera on standby while the code is been scanned as it is the case with other Android applications. Apart from this Norton Snap prompts the users before actually opening the embedded links so that they can take proper action without actually opening the links.
This amazing application is backed by the effective and 100% secure Norton labs, for letting the users know about the authenticity of the codes. It also suggests the users about whether to open the link or not. We personally tried to scan 10 codes, including 3 phishing ones, and the application identified the phishing codes in an accurate manner. Not only this, Norton Snap also provided detailed info regarding the QR code link from the Norton lab database along with the safety rating in the results.
On the whole, the application is highly useful, effective and light weight to the Android gadget. Norton Snap offers utility in combination to full security in a simple and innovative manner.
