Powerful 8 inch tab with 4G LTE

Design and Configuration

Samsung has given the new Galaxy Tab 3 a Galaxy Note like look, with its signature two touch one hard button configuration at the bottom end of the screen. That aside, the Tab 3 retains the overall signature design of the Galaxy Tab – light and easy to use. As the title says, the Tab 3 8.0 comes with a large 8 inch screen with 800 x 1280 pixels display, which makes it ideal for viewing HD videos with great clarity. 

Inside this thin device lies a powerful 1500MHz Dual Core CPU with 1.5GB of RAM, turning this device into a processing powerhouse. Gaming needs are amply taken care of by the PowerVR SGX544 GPU. 

Camera and Storage

The Tab 3 8.0 has dual camera, with the rear one being 5MP with flash, which shows that Samsung intends this light tab to be seriously used for photography. What's more it can capture HD videos at 30fps. A 1.3MP front camera ensures video calling. 

The storage of this device is 16GB, which is about as high as any device in this price bracket. It can be expanded to a whopping 64GB by memory card. 

Connectivity and Battery

Samsung has provided  this device with 4G LTE, ensuring that blazing fast data speeds can be obtained. Other features include the latest Bluetooth (4.0), GPS  (with A-GPS) and GLONASS for navigation and of course microUSB connectivity. 

The power needs of this device are taken care of by a good 4450 mAh Li-ion battery.

Verdict

This 8 inches tablet, part of Samsung's new range of Galaxy tabs, brings to the table a great display and  equally good processing power. In the camera department, it's as good as it gets in tablets, while enough provision is made for storage space. Finally, it's nice to see Samsung bringing the 4G LTE tech to its tabs, though it may be a while before 4G becomes the norm. If one is willing to discount the small problems of microSIM  and the limited colour avaiability, one has a powerful beast in hands, ready to take on the competition out there.

    In their third generation, the Galaxy Tab series by Samsung are finally coming to terms with playing second fiddle to the Notes. The S-Pen and the processing power are, at this point, the main dividing line between mainstream and premium, but the gap will probably widen. If you`re after latest-generation chipsets and full-HD screens, the Note line of tablets is by far the safer bet. The Galaxy Tabs on the other hand are shaping up as the sensible...

    Verdict: This year`s update of the Galaxy Tab series makes room for an 8" tablet and it looks like a logical decision by Samsung to build on the momentum of the Note 8.0. You lose the S-pen and two CPU cores but you get slimmer bezels and lighter weight - som...

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is an 8-inch Android tablet that continues the Korean manufacturerâ??s intentions to make a tablet in every size possible. It`s the first 8-inch tablet in the Galaxy Tab range and is set to take on the 7.9-inch Apple iPad Mini 2, 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the 7-inch Nexus 7 2. But with a £279 starting price that puts it above even the iPad Mini (£269), does the 8-inch Galaxy Tab make any sense?SEE ALSO: ...

    Pros: Decent, bright screen, Multi-Window support, Good battery life,

    Cons: Cheap design with slippery back, Sluggish multi-tasking performance, Overpriced,

    Overall: I have used and bought many tablets and phones over the years. Which also includes the Apple Ipad, Indian make but China made Tablets, other known tablet brands. Ive researched it all and trust me I'm not very easy to impress when it comes to investing in new technology. I require an amazing screen (also big and the right size), excellent speedy processor, ample of RAM, upgradeable storage with generous amount of internal storage, amazing battery life and last but not least it comes from a brand that you can trust on the most at what i declare a value for money purchase. DO NOT THINK TWICE BEFORE BUYING THIS PRODUCT > GO AHEAD AND GET IT. You can get a book cover/case for this offline around your city if you do some searching for about Rs. 500 so do not buy that online.nnFOR THOSE WHO ARE CONSIDERING BUYING INDIAN BRANDS LIKE SWIPE/XOLO/MICROMAX...you are making the wrong decision. Having researched for many months I have got a firm and strong view on this as have many others. The INDIAN tablet/phone market is growing. It has not produced any international standard tablets yet or will be in the near future. Their reliability and tuning have been left to manufacturers in China and we all know the life of most China makes. Even though some international companies manufacture from China,Indian brands have ALOT of catching up to do. Do your research, don't let false advertising draw you into cheap Indian brands. you will thank me later for this.

    Overall: I bought this tab from another website that offered better discount. Then realized its not just the product but the service that comes with it, the shopping experience, delivery, customer support etc. My first order on another site was cancelled when they realized that they had accidentally offered an unreal discount (believe that!). A string of emails led to the refund being credited to my account after 11 days. My second order on yet another site was thankfully fulfilled but the delivery took a week whereas Flipkart normally delivers to my doorstep within a day.nnThe saying goes for the product as well. You may get a tab from cheaper brands with similar specs but the similarities end as soon as you start using them. It is the hardware integration and the software customizations done by Samsung which makes all the difference to your tablet experience. Evey day I use my Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 I am reminded of the money well spent and the frustrations saved.nnDesign and form: The tab optimizes screen space by having a slim bezel and 16:10 screen format which makes it slightly less wide and more manageable than other 8 inch android alternatives available currently. Also most android apps are customized for this screen format and not the 4:3 format being offered by cheaper 8 inch tabs. After holding the tab in one hand for an hour Its 316g weight becomes an obvious advantage against 400g something.nnScreen: At 189ppi its screen is much better than mini's 160ppi. Although on this day and date a retina display would have been more appropriate. Initially didn't think it makes much of a difference but it does. A higher resolution screen can be held closer to the eye and makes it easy to read finer text with much less strain. Even at 189ppi pixilization is apparent but not as much as at 160ppi. nnPerformance: The hardware/software integration shines here. Despite having a dual core processor it easily outpaces cheaper quad core tabs.Decent RAM and internal memory helps a lot. The Samsung UI is silky smooth though apps do crash sometimes.nnBattery: This is the star of the show and can go on for a whole day. Really the strongest point of this tab.nnThere are a lot of useful features like a split keyboard, multi window, S Voice, GLONASS (which helps triangulate your position much faster than GPS) etc. Things that make the Samsung experience worthwhile.nnAlternatives: The only real android alternatives to Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 are yet to arrive in India. They are the Nexus 7 (2013) and LG G Pad 8.3. Both will outclass Tab 3 with greater processing power and higher resolution screens. However Tab 3 8.0 is not all at loss here. The Samsung UI is still much better than what LG has demonstrated on G2 and G Pad 8.3. An example that demonstrates Samsung's superior experience and design is the placement of home and menu keys on the bezel while on almost all other android 4+ devices these keys eat into the screen space. Therefore the actual useful or visible screen area on Tab 3 8.0 is almost the same as G Pad 8.3 despite having a smaller screen. The Nexus 7 screen looks even smaller for the same reason. nAt the least one can expect decent price discounts on Tab 3 8.0 once these competitors arrive.nnWARNING: Be super careful about the quality of apps you install and the permissions they ask for. The permissions you grant bypass all antivirus security and can compromise your privacy. One bad app can ruin your tab experience.
