The little three. The Galaxy Tab 3 in its 7-inch size is the cheaper and slightly smaller version of the already reviewed Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. So, does one have to deal with numerous restrictions or are Samsung's premium aspirations justified?

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. But then, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 isn't really a modern tablet - it's a reminder of the way tablets used to be in the not-too-distant past. If you want to see where the next generation of Android tablets is headed, check out the similarly priced Google Nexus 7.

The upgrade in specifications on paper from the Tab 2 to the Tab 3 isn't spectacular. For the price you pay, you get a tablet that gets the job done, but feels lacking if you are a heavy user and want to play graphically heavy games and want a lot of multitasking. For heavy-duty use, you have devices such as the Nexus 7 (even better if you can get your hands on the second gen one from the US) as the tablet has a better display, better power under the hood and a stock Android interface. If you are in the market to pick up a sub-Rs. 20,000 tablet, you may want to consider options such as the Nexus 7, Asus Fonepad, Zync Quad 8 before making your purchase decision.

50% Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 T211 Review
Source: English
The Samsung Tab 3 T211 is a real disappointment as it barely improves anything from last year’s model. In fact, the performance has gotten worse. With a retail price of Rs 18,890 for the 8GB variant, it’s highly overpriced and not worth the premium. The only redeeming feature is the relatively good battery life but it falls flat in almost every other department. The Asus Fonepad offers much better value at Rs 18,000 as it packs in the same feature set but with 32GB onboard memory and an HD IPS display. If you absolutely need calling capabilities then we highly recommend the Fonepad over the Galaxy Tab 3.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 specs and preview: minor update to the 7-inch Galaxy Tab
Source: PC Advisor English
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has a thinner bezel than the previous model and the look has been changed. It predictably falls in line with Samsung's latest devices like the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 8.0 — the familiar glossy plastic finish and rounded corners.
