Got this tablet the other day as a more portable solution than my iPad 2 (which crushes the Tab 3 7.0" in gaming despite its age). Still for the price, it's a decent PIM device and if you want to game on it, disable the power saving toggle from the window shade up top. Leaving it enabled will of course ruin your fun gaming, but it sure does last on battery
Totally agree with the majority of the comnentary above. I bought my wife an ipad over a year ago. My wife got me this tablet in january. The disappointing thing about it is everything it does is slow. For an ipad that is 2 years old to he faster at everything it does this tablet is not worth anything but disappointment.
This tablet is "CRAP", it is an expensive book reader. (paper weight ?) It is not up to basic SURFING, (What a joke you can actually watch the menus activating its so slow). Browsers frequently crash. Even chrome is not quick. 32GB SD Card makes absolutely no difference. The USB port is a CHARGER socket and sync only. NO device connections on USB possible. ON the plus side java Applications run OK. That is it!. Find an extra 50 quid and buy a nexus. Any one want mine ? Its for sale. (even the mapping is SLOW.....) I would happily partake in a class action against Samsung for foisting this garbage onto the world, to get a full refund on this device. Instead I loose big £ selling it on ebay. SAMSUNG you are thieves..
My friend actually thought this was better than the 2012 Nexus 7 because it was made by Samsung The least I can do is root it for him. He wants to record videos on it (good luck, it probably plays Shadowgun Deadzone on medium at best) so I'll root it for him in a few hours and CWM with swipe controls.
I have a tab 3 7 inch and I biught it really cheap on an offer. Themain problem that I hate is that all the browsers that I tried they lag as hell.i would not buy it even so cheap if I knew it. It sucks if you cant surf the net smoothly
continued: At my local *food* supermarket. Attatched with a 32GB flashdrive (€20 extra), it is quite good "bang for the buck . Not the very best tab in the today's market, but in that pricerange you can't get anything better. (€120 for "40GB" total for pad and memory.) It runs nicely for surfing and every day jobs. Streaming videos in HD works nice too. And with my cellphone as an AP, it works well outside "wifi". Good buy for that money! But at the original suggested retail price, crap!
The little three. The Galaxy Tab 3 in its 7-inch size is the cheaper and slightly smaller version of the already reviewed Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. So, does one have to deal with numerous restrictions or are Samsung's premium aspirations justified?
