Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 inch

With the rise in demand of smaller tablets, Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 inch to stay competitive in the market. The device is priced cheaper than most of its big-name direct competitors.

Like most Samsung products, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 inch comes with a plastic casing, which, in general, make a device feel flimsy. The device comes with a 7 inch screen, which unfortunately has a rather poor resolution; only 1024 by 600 pixels. On the bright side, the tablet has some good viewing angles.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 inch is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Marvell Armada PXA986 processor. Although the processor itself is not a state of the art component, it is sufficient to get through casual browsing and gaming. It has 1 GB of RAM which is rather decent to ensure smooth multitasking and application switching. The device comes with 2 options for internal memory; 8 GB or 16 GB. The memory can be upgraded with an external micro SD card.

In short, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 inch seems a little rushed. Despite it being priced lower than its competitors, it dulls in key areas compared to its rivals and the price doesn't seem to be justified.

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: Tech2.in.com 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.

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.

Round 3. A new SoC is used and the 3G model has been replaced with an LTE module. Now an Atom SoC from Intel can exhibit its performance. Are these the significant differences compared with the 10-inch precursor or is there more to it?

Samsung tried to deviate from the standard design for an Android tablet and the gamble almost worked. Sure, the tablet runs Android on an Intel Atom processor, but there are lag issues that plague it such that it is not a good experience compared to the standard ARM based competitors.

Samsung certainly improved the look of the Galaxy Tab 3 to reflect its smartphone Galaxy devices, which may be a hit or miss to some users depending on how you feel about either device’s plastic exterior. We just wish Samsung would put as much effort into the internal specs and overall performance of the Galaxy Tab 3 to help make it a must-have tablet, but at this point, it’s full of more disappointment than.

Samsung has left the Galaxy Tab line languishing, as it focuses its efforts on its superior Note devices. The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 isn't much of an improvement over the Tab 2, which itself was only a modest update to the original Tab. This isn't a three-year-old tablet, but it feels dated right out of the box, thanks to its low-res display and middling real-world performance. That might be acceptable if this tablet was priced at $300, but at $400 it's tough to recommend the Tab 3 over the multitude of more capable competitors. The Nexus 10 is markedly better in nearly every way, and even the year-old Asus Transformer Pad TF300 offers a more compelling experience. And if you've got your heart set on a Galaxy Tab, the Tab 3 8.0 is the better choice.

Nothing ever really changes when it comes to Samsung's 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab. The Tab 3 10.1 is proof positive of that. This 2013 iteration is a parallel move for the line that attempts to mix up the package of mid-range specs with a terrible brown plastic coat.

This device is ready to be a lovely addition to your Samsung Galaxy S 4 family of smart devices. If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there’s little reason to upgrade – and you might just want to skip this generation if you really enjoy your front-facing speakers which do not appear here in 2013 – unless you’ve got the Galaxy Note 10.1, of course. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 instead is the topmost hero tablet for the Samsung universe at the moment, running a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and rolling with an S-Pen to boot.

The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 has all the makings of very nice tablet comfort food for Samsung phone owners. You get a design and software similar to those on the Galaxy S4 -- minus some features -- as well as the ability to control your TV. The robust quick settings and loud stereo speakers also help differentiate Samsung's midrange 10-incher.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 SM-T310

The Galaxy Tab 8.0 wasn't designed to be a flagship model or as a direct competition to any other tablets out there. In fact, it doesn't really have any kind of competition out there. Just like its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 was designed to please customers preferring smaller tablets. Its design is very similar to the Note 8.0's design. It is still very much plastic and doesn't have the premium built quality of the iPad mini. What it loses in build quality, it compensates in size. It is as light as the iPad mini and much lighter than the Nexus 7.

The 8-inch, 1280-by-800-pixel LCD is pretty much standard and like most Samsung displays, it produces very sharp and bright pixels. Its buttons are configured just like on the Note 3 and it has an IR-emitter, micro-SD card slot and surprisingly, a micro-USB port. Also on board are Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS but no NFC.

Performance wise, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 does lack slightly when compared to the Note 8.0. It only has a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory. However, this is sufficient for the average user.

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is a very good looking device with average performance. It might be slightly pricier than the Nexus 7 but is actually a better device. Samsung also suggests that it has the best battery life among its competitors.

Tab, the third. Samsung has something for everyone in its tablet portfolio: the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is aimed at users who are looking for a medium sized tablet and can do without pen input. Confidently, Samsung wants 299 Euros (~$397) for it - an appropriate value for the money?

Keeping in mind that Samsung didn’t design the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 to be a flagship, ultra-powerful device, we feel this tablet performed adequately for its intended use. With that said, there’s one key aspect of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 that holds us back and that’s the price. The 16GB version of Google’s new Nexus 7 sells for $229 which is a full $50 less than the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0.

If you are in the market to pick up an 8-inch tablet, you have the iPad mini as a great option as well. But the mini doesn't have calling capabilities. You have other budget devices such as the Zync Quad 8 too available in the 8-inch form factor but the overall performance of the Galaxy Tab 3 311 is better. If calling capability is a must, then the Galaxy Tab is the device for you. If not, you may want to consider the iPad mini since the Apple app ecosystem is great for tablets. If you want the best performing Android tablet and don't mind a 7-inch form factor and no calling capability, you can take a look at the second-generation Nexus 7 tablet.

We honestly believe both tablets are geared towards different people, so if you’re the kind of person who wants the most powerful tablet in a small frame, you shouldn’t be looking at the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 as it’ll leave you disappointed. But if you’re looking for an 8-inch tablet that will allow you to keep up with your emails, browse Facebook and take photos with, then the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is a pretty good choice, although it certainly isn’t the best. That crown would still have to go to the Nexus 7 (2013) at the moment.

Our biggest knock against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is its finicky performance, which admittedly is no minor complaint. Beyond that, though, the biggest fault we can find with the Tab is that it's simply not memorable. Sure, if you have $300 to spend and want an 8-inch Android tablet, it's an option worth considering.

For audio you get MP3, AAC, FLAC, OGG, WAV, and WMA support. You can also mirror your screen using DLNA with supported HDTVs or use an MHL adapter to connect the Tab 3 8.0 with an HDMI cable.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is a fine upgrade from what’s been offered at this size range by the manufacturer in past generations. While the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 bests this tablet in essentially every area save its smaller bezel, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 holds its own as a solid addition to the Samsung family of Galaxy S 4-era smart devices. Here the company brings an extremely thin and finely constructed mid-sized tablet that’ll serve its users well into the future.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite

Samsung's monopoly in the electronics industry extends further with the introduction of a Lite version to the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 to cater for the low tier, affordable segment of the tablet market. This variant comes with the same 7 inch display of the original version but only fitted with a 2.0 MP camera at the back. The battery is reduced to 3600 mAh, although the same Dual Core 1.2 Ghz processor remained as the chipset of choice.

However, all the alteration that was made to the new variant only managed to reduce 0.2 mm from the tablet's original thickness. Surprisingly, the overall weight is increased by a small margin despite smaller battery and less sensors.

Designwise, it sticks to the same traditional Samsung tablet design with its bezel edges and a physical home button at the center below the screen, which has become a trademark feature of Samsung phones and tablets.The overall dimension is a little bit smaller compared to the original version, and other than multiple colors to choose from, there nothing really outstanding.

Lower hardware specifications along with simple composition, make the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite an affordable and simple tablet. With an basic Android OS as user interface and a low price tag for a tablet with 3G and Wi-Fi, Samsung is looking to compete with the likes of Asus, e.g. the Memo Pad 7, with more or less similar capabilities in the entry level tablet segment.

Comment

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

PXA986: Cortex-A9 based dual-core SoC with integrated WCDMA and HSDPA radio.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2560: SoC with an integrated dual-core Atom based CPU clocked at 0.9 - 1.6 (short bursts), a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics card, and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.

Samsung Exynos:


7.0: This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily.
