Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 review
23 January 2014
Excerpt: Samsung’s 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 feels like a device designed to fight some very specific enemies in the form of the original Nexus 7 and iPad minis . Unfortunately for Samsung those are competitors that have since retired from the field and been replaced by younger and more lively successors… which...
Excerpt: 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...
Summary: The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 looks like the most prominent option in the Tab 3 series. It’s big but not too big and even though it lacks some of those premium specs and features, it will give you decent performance, camera, display and a run for your money.
Pros: Practical design and size, decent performance and a strong battery.
Cons: No radio, not a Full HD display and average video recording.
Summary: After first making its debut at IFA three years ago, we now have the third generation of GALAXY Tabs. The GALAXY Tab devices are now considered midrange offerings as Samsung have expanded their GALAXY Note series to the tablet form factors and those are their premium devices.
Pros: 4G LTE Support, Super slim, microSD Support, 4450mAh battery
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...
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.
Conclusion: Priced at $299, I am having a hard time coming up with a reason to buy the 8.0. Unless you really feel you need an extra inch, you would be better off spending $70 less on a new Nexus 7 or $100 less on the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0.
Excerpt: Beyond a shadow of a doubt, there are a lot of tablets out there. You can find one that fits any type of niche you may be looking for, whether that's basically to consume content or create it, or just a little bit of both, there's a tablet out there for you.
