Light, thin, easy to hold and carry around
Looking for a decent mid-range Android tablet? Well, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch would be a good choice. It is light, portable, and capable enough to be used for not only web surfing and writing emails, but also for watching HD movies and even playing some Real Racing 3 every once in a while. The device doesn't have any flaws that would make it a deal breaker, so if it fits your budget, go ahead and grab one!
Slim, light, microSD slot for expansion
There's plenty of good to be had from the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. But less so at this price point. It's pricier than the higher-resolution Nexus 7, and its plasticky construction just isn't as well made as the Apple iPad mini. And for once the Apple device is the more affordable of the two.
Even if the screen's not class-leading in resolution terms, we've found it more than usable in a variety of conditions.
Beautiful display, Comfortable, attractive design
The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is yet another strong tablet from Samsung and a great alternative to the Galaxy Note 8.0 if you don't need the pen capabilities or just can't afford the $380 price tag. At $300 the Tab 3 is less expensive than the iPad Mini and $100 more than most 7-inch slates. The extra screen size is worth the premium, and the combination of long battery life and great design round out what we think is one of the best 8-inch tablets available.
Best tablet out there for $149!
This is a really great tablet. I got it for $149 so I didn't have my hopes too high with it being this cheap but it's an excellent tablet. I would say this is by far the best tablet for $149. The build quality seems to be really good, not cheap and creaky like the Hisense Sero 7 Pro from Walmart. The back is mildy grippy like the nexus 7. It's super light only weighing 314g! It has front and rear cameras that aren't that great but it's better than nothing.
Low Price, Decent Build Quality, MicroSD Card Slot
Dell's Venue 7 is a very affordable Android tablet that does a decent job but just has enough small items that make it just an average tablet. It is nice to see that it has a decent level of quality considering its very low price tag and it is easy to expand storage with the microSD card slot. The problem is that the Atom processor just doesn't perform as well in terms of battery life or smoothness with the Android operating system as comparable ARM based tablets.
Good tablet in 10 in range, could have been better
The time has come to fight it out for tablets! I would say go from budget and size. If budget is not a concern, I would say go for Samsung Tab 8". 8" is a sweet spot. If budget is a concern, Tab 3 7" is awesome, otherwise get the Tab 8. If you are business user, most likely the company will give the 10" tablet.
Thin and light construction
Once regarded as the premium tablet offering from Samsung's camp to compete against Apple's mighty iPad, the Galaxy Tab series has now taken the back seat as an entry-level model - leaving the Galaxy Note series to occupy its former throne. Brandishing a $399 price point for the base 16GB Wi-Fi model, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch might seem like a tempting offering, especially when it's priced below the $500 mark, but seriously, it just doesn't seem enough to overpower some of the other noise...
Very slim and light, bright display, has IR AV remote
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 isn't a bad tablet, it's just a bit lacking for the price, and it provides little reason for Tab 2 owners to upgrade. The display, though not high resolution, is bright and colorful thanks to Samsung's PLS technology that's similar to IPS, and the tablet is attractive even if it is cursed with Samsung's love of shiny plastic.
Screen is impressively bright
My experience with the Tab 3 10.1 was more frustrating than functional. Even while cutting it some slack for being a midrange tablet that's impressively small and light for a 10-inch device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 fails to make a good case for taking it home.
The tablet's specs resemble the Tab 2 10.1's too closely to be considered an actual upgrade. The Tab 3 10.1's tendency to lag coupled with its flawed navigation array functionality don't justify the starting price of US$399.
Tablet Experiences Lots of Lag, Lower Resolution Display
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. Add to this the fact that they decided to use a lower resolution display without dropping the price accordingly and the tablet is going to be a tough sell.
