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.
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.
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 Â£279 starting price that puts it above even the iPad Mini (Â£269), does the 8-inch Galaxy Tab make any sense?SEE ALSO: ...
