Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Review
8 November 2013
Conclusion: 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.
Conclusion: 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.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 has a number of pros and cons when compared to the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. On one hand, it isn’t as powerful, its display isn’t as nice and its speakers offer an overall tinny audio experience. On the other hand, the hardware and software performance of its camera blows the 10.1’s camera out of the water, it’s more portable and it has better battery life.
Summary: Samsung’s newest tablet is finally here — the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. The first question that comes to mind, of course, is just how much better it is than last year’s model? While it’s no high-end device, it does do very well in the mid-range category. Nonetheless, we’re giving the device the full review treatment, and it’s up to you to decide just how much better it is than last year’s tablet.
Summary: 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?
