  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids 7.0 is a playfully designed, engaging Android tablet geared toward children, but it's just too expensive without offering any appreciable advantages over the competition.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 bears many of the hallmarks of the Galaxy series, including the plastic body and TouchWiz UI. However, it hasn’t kept as in line with its competitors. Its middling CPU and very low screen resolution mean it just isn’t worth the money.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a deeply unremarkable tablet with underwhelming performance and a low-res display that remains ostensibly unchanged since the launch of the original Galaxy Tab. It's a deeply average tablet that's been way over-priced by Samsung.


  • The Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 will appeal to longtime Samsung fans, but it doesn't do enough to justify the premium over similarly equipped competitors.


  • The $180 Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a fine choice for a budget tablet, but it's ultimately bested by great older devices, and new slates that are cheaper still.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 bears many of the hallmarks of the Galaxy series, including the plastic body and TouchWiz UI. However, it hasn't kept as in line with its competitors. Its middling CPU and very low screen resolution mean it just isn't worth the money.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a deeply unremarkable tablet with underwhelming performance and a low-res display that remains ostensibly unchanged since the launch of the original Galaxy Tab. It's a deeply average tablet that's been way over-priced by Samsung.


  • Wait a bit and see what other manufacturers will release shortly. Alternatively, increase your budget by about 100 Euros (~$134), where the iPad Mini or the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 are a better deal than Galaxy Tab 3 7.0.


  • The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is one of the most beautifully designed Android tablets you can find, offering up solid performance with fast LTE, and a stunning Super AMOLED Plus display, but it's simply too expensive.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 offers a gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display, smooth performance and universal remote capability in a sexy, thin design.


  • The form and size of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 feels perfect for a device you can grab to take with you for a long trip, a meeting, or a trip to the ballpark. It isn't as unwieldy as a 10-inch tablet, but the tradeoff is the screen loses real estate previously devoted to input. As a result, it doesn't feel like a serious business device (unless you pair it with a keyboard) that you would want by your side through a busy day of meetings and projects.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) may not be a big step forward on the hardware front, but it's a simple, elegant small-screen tablet that really shows off the polish and power of Google's latest mobile operating system for just $250.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 isn't out to prove a grand point. This isn't the Galaxy Note, or the dazzling Tab 7.7. However, it is one of the very best tablets you can buy for under £200. With a dual-core 1GHz processor and relatively low-density 1,024 x 600 resolution screen, it's hardly cutting edge but performance is solid and build is good. The one lingering concern is that the screen resolution ensures games optimisation and support isn't up there with the best.


  • If the idea of a capable, portable, fun and comparatively low cost tablet appeals enough to you to make you part with £200/$250, then this is your tablet.
    However, those who strive for the best experience, the sharpest screen and the most slender, curvaceous build will see that Samsung has cut corners.
    It has kept costs down to offer something affordable to recession-hit customers, and still make a margin for itself, and to be honest, we don't blame it one bit.
