Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Review

A Wonder Addition to Tabs

The market welcomes another member of the Samsung Galaxy Tab family, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. This 8.0 inches tablet computer is one of the most handy and portable gadgets ever manufactured by the company. In fact, this latest addition to the Galaxy tab 3 series weighs only 314 grams and is small enough to fit in a single hand.

Charming Sleek Body

With white and silver colored sleek body, the tab shows a great deal of resemblance with Samsung’s Galaxy S4 smartphone. However, the appearance is all the two devices have in common. The smart device has not brought the same set of revolutionary features to the world which S4 did. Developers of S4 showed a lot of creativity with unique apps complimenting the premium hardware of the device. On the other hand, the potential buyers should have no such expectations from this latest tablet.

4.2 Android OS with Dual-Core Processor

The basic features of the latest model of Tab 3 series include Android’s 4.2 version of the operating system along with Intel Atom, 1.5 GHz dual core processor. This means that the modern device does have something innovative to offer. Nevertheless, with this fast processing speed and the latest Jelly Bean apps, users will have a high level of satisfaction with the gadget’s performance.

4G Network & Other Connectivity Options

Moreover, with the inclusion of 4G network coverage, the company has made it even more attractive. With 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity, you will have multiple options to establish a connection to the worldwide web. Users can enjoy high speeds paired with seamless connectivity. Plus, the device also has Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi hotspot features.

5MP Camera

After the description of all these respectable features, the average 5 MP camera of the device brings all the satisfaction levels down. At least, 8 megapixels should have been offered by the manufacturer to maintain the attraction of this new product.

1.3MP Secondary Camera

The gadget is also equipped with a secondary camera. As expected, the resolution of this camera is low, only up to 1.3 MP. It can, however, function well as a tool for video chatting.

GSM & Mini-SIM Support

One of the best features of Samsung’s Galaxy tab 3 8.0 is its support for GSM. This means, unlike most other tablet computers in the market, you can use this device not only for voice communication but also for sending and receiving MMS and SMS. So, you will end up making a good deal by purchasing the device as it will also function as a phone for you through its support for a mini-SIM.

Best Resolution with 16M Colors

Another feature which makes this latest Galaxy 3 tab worth your money is its high resolution. Critics and reviewers claim that this is one of the best resolutions they have ever experienced. Just like Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, a resolution of 800×1200 pixels works great for this new gadget on its 8.0 inches screen. Furthermore, 16M colors also add their effect to the display, making it more vivid and appealing.

Bottom Line

So, Samsung Galaxy tab 3 8.0 comes out of the box with all of these decent features. It might not be an extremely exciting device; it is still attractive for the potential buyers.
