Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Review

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 4:39:01 PM America/Los_Angeles

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 can be considered as a famous company’s “less-than-famous” product. Besides its 1.5 GB of RAM, the product seems to have modest hardware features, as compared to its competitors. Critics of the tab argue that the market has to offer various 7 to 9 inch screen size tabs that have better specs and features. The Tab 3 has an 8-inch screen and among its major good features is its light comfortable design and sharp bright screen. The device also comes up with a microSD expandable storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3’s price is a huge turn-off for its potential buyers. Many of which have stated that they rather buy an iPad Mini by just adding $30 to their budget. A good thing about the device is that it has a slim body that allows it to easily fit in your pocket. You can also hold the device with a good grip, which minimizes the risk of a hard fall.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has a plastic body, but due to its smooth, rounded corners, and beautiful design features, it does give the feel of a low-priced product. The famous navigation array seen at the Note line features in this set with the bottom bezel hosting the menu button, home button and back button. It is easy to navigate through the device’s options and this contributes to the device’s overall positives. The menu button gives you a quick access to the settings, search and creating folder options. This is beneficial in case you have to do a certain task quickly.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It offers an easily accessible shortcut option that allows you to better manage features of Multi Window, Wi-Fi, Screen Mirroring, GPS and Reading Mode. The multi-window feature is good for running apps like Facebook and Twitter. Here, the user can easily resize each window according to his/her specifications, though users may find it difficult to apply precision in sizing the window.

The Tab 3’s hardware features include a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, 1.5 GB RAM, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, gyroscope, digital compass, accelerometer, and support for 802.11 a/b/g/n. Though all of this may seem to be impressive, but the fact is that these tend to be shadowed by a hefty price tag. The Tab 3 has a screen resolution of 1,280x800 pixels. This is 189 ppi as compared with 163 ppi of iPad Mini. This allows the device to show images with high definition clarity, especially fonts. A notable feature that has been generally appreciated by the users is its three screen presets, i.e. Movie, Dynamic and Standard.

The 1.3 megapixel camera present at the front is a bit of a “turn-off” for the users, though the 5 megapixel rear camera compensates for this deficit. All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 does possess some good features, but its price tag is a major cause of concern for any potential buyer.
