Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 review

For all intents and purposes, eight inches is the new sweet spot for tablets. We've so far seen a few hits with this form factor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 perhaps foremost among them. It makes sense, after all; 10.1 inches can be unwieldy for travelers, and 7 inches scrimps a bit on screen real estate. Samsung's leveraged this trend to add another 8-incher to its lineup: the $300 Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. With 16GB of built-in storage, a dual-core processor and WiFi -- but not LTE -- support, it's hardly revolutionary apart from those novel dimensions. Still, we've found plenty to like with Galaxy Tabs in the past, so is this yet another strong contender? Meet us past the break to find out.
