The edges are rounded and the sides of this tablet get graceful slopes and are framed with thin aluminum to cover the screen. Altogether, the tablet has received premium finish. One notified flaw is its rear cover which cannot be taken out. However, unremovable cover from the tablet is commonly found in almost all the tablets these days.

There is a lack of Apps. Honeycomb is a powerful operating system, but it still lacks many tablet specific Android apps that are yet to arrive. Samsung has added a fair number of customizable widgets as well as apps, but still they are limited in 620. If apps are limited then utility also becomes limited.

This is the only area where iPad wins the game successfully.
