Heads up! A newer version of this product is out!


Digital Versus says:


This hesitant successor to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was somehow able to underperform its predecessor in almost every respect. The only exceptions are the top-grade design and longer battery life. The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a mediocre product that can handle the basics but whose hardware isn't on par with the other models in the Tab 3 range. quote

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 bears many of the hallmarks of the Galaxy series, including the plastic body and TouchWiz UI. However, it hasn’t kept as in line with its competitors. Its middling CPU and very low screen resolution mean it just isn’t worth the money.

There's no getting around it - the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a deeply average tablet that's been way over-priced by Samsung.

First Looks

Looks aside, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 hardly seems like much of an upgrade over the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. The tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz dual core processor compared to the previous 1GHz processor and has the same 1GB of RAM. It even includes the same 3-megapixel rear camera.

I bought this to use with my Nikon D5100, only to discover that it wasn't compatible. Oops! Well, rather than return it, I decided to just play around with it and re-purpose it to use for business applications. All said it's a neat little tablet, but a booger to navigate! Maybe it's my ignorance...

If found for cheap ($100 or less), this is not that bad of a tablet. Its three major flaws is a very substandard display for 2013/2014, its frequent immense lag when switching between apps (seems to have not enough processing power) and its stuck on an older version of JellyBean. Otherwise its...

A great device to buy. A must buy for all children and adults. Don't worry I wasn't paid to write this, don't bother with cheaper tablets this is the one to buy. The ram is plentiful and you should never ever have any problems with it. It is the perfect tablet for all!

Don't waste your money and time on this, I purchased one for Christmas and it did nothing but hang and freeze constantly, so much so I almost used it as a frisbee when I attempted to look up directions and it froze 3 times. It didnt just freeze for a couple of seconds or minutes, it would stay...

What bugs me out the most is it's on paper capable of using Micro SD but when it comes to reality it will read it, store something on it and make the card unreadable in a few days. I had my tablets for 4 months I guess and God knows how many times I have had to format the card just to make it...

For the form factor this is an excellent little tablet. I have only had it for a few weeks, but it has been great so far.

I already own a nexus 7. I bought this tab for home use. After reading online reviews and comparisons i thought it was one of the best sub 200 $ tabs on the market. Unfortunately it is not. The overall performance of Galaxy Tab 3 is very poor. Processor is very slow and can not properly run the...
