- 53AVERAGE CRITIC SCORE3 ReviewsPC World AustraliaNot RatedSamsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Android tablet (preview)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.TechRadar50Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 reviewThere'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.Digital Versus60Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0The 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.TrustedReviews50Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 reviewThe 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.

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 to how the Android OS works, but I just don't like the feel of the operating system. Finding basic things are far more difficult to me than that of the iPad.My other big gripe is that this tablet has been plagued with pop-up ads for games and a random "white screen" that locks it up (and usually requires a reboot/restart) and totally deems this thing useless at times. I hate being in the midst of something and it just locks up! I've contacted Samsung tech support and they said to re-install the OS. I did that....same problem! I've run multiple malware and virus scanning apps on the tablet and it checks out fine! I don't look at things to cause the ad pop-ups with the tablet and use it exclusively for a few paid apps...so it's baffling to me! It's not an every day occurence, but annoying. Even more annoying is the white screen of death! A friend of mine who's more experienced with Adroid and Samsung products suggested that I might have a tablet with a faulty processor. I would go through the process to return it, but it's been too long now and I didn't pay a lot for it anyways (under $100)... I can always strip the apps, reload the OS, and give it to the kids rather than go through the insanity of returning it or selling it. Small kids have more patience for this than others...All said, it's not a bad product...it's just not the best. The newer models with slightly-larger screens are much better!Engadget Reader60July 19, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 useful.What's the point of using memory for photos apps and everything if it's there waiting for being corrupted?This tablet is for checking mails and Facebook - nothing else.Engadget Reader70July 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90July 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I love mine looking now for a newr bigger version I would have probably chose the 8 BTW as my eyes are not great. My tab is fast plus 1.5 ram 16g main . 32g additional by mini SD. Box, Dropbox, etc expands that Seems like Some of the other reviews don't have the right specs. also updated to 4,4. 2 kit Kat. Mine will run video and anything else on screen at the same time. I can run 3 apps on screen at once (video in small adjustable box). Switching is easy between apps If moving from Apple, there is a learning curve. We have iPads too. This is a great tab for price but the new one should be betterEngadget Reader70June 4, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetEngadget Reader60April 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80April 14, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Iâ€™m now wondering why I choose this over the 2nd gen Nexus 7...I had it in my hands & put it down back...deciding to give Samsung a chance, even after reading the bad reviews...what a poor choice i made...this device lags alot...freezes for minutes at a time & Iâ€™m sure that its not just mine...my friend has one too & he has the same complaints. I wanted to upgrade from my Samsung SGH T 769 (Galaxy S Blaze 4 G) but donâ€™t feel like I did.Engadget Reader10April 13, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Really poor design battery dies every hour, what a mistake and ingotnit free, its awful.Engadget Reader40April 6, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 most of mainstream apps. Well i would suggest not wasting money on this one.Engadget Reader60March 13, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 quite adequate for the basics, and games and videos process fine. Its main selling feature is the microSD slot, which really allows you to carry as much multimedia as the card can hold which is something the Nexus 7 lacks.Engadget Reader60February 17, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - EngadgetEngadget Reader10January 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 frozen for hours, the only way to get it back was to carry out a hard reset then start again only to have the thing freeze again. I called Samsung who told me to return and exchange it which I did only to have the new one do exactly the same straight from the box, I returned this one too and refused another, I threw in some more money and got an I-pad mini (non retina), this thing is great, very fast and no hang ups or freezing (touch wood) The screen is a bit larger as well and it is a very well built bit of gear.Engadget Reader100December 9, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetEngadget Reader100October 28, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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!Engadget Reader90September 18, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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.
