Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch is a nice tablet launched back in 2013, packed with a high-tech Dual-Core processing unit running at 1500 MHz, a 8-inches display, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back side camera and a 1.3 megapixels front camera. We will get a better idea about this device's features when we get into more details.

Even though this device is just 8.26" long, it is able to fit a a 8 inches display. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch is just 0.29 inches thick, making its way into the thinnest tablets podium. This tablet feels much lighter than what one would think about a tablet this size.

Samsung equipped this tablet with an average 8-inches screen, and a 800 x 1280 resolution, making everything look nice. Its screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Tab 3 8-inch is equipped with a very fast 1.5 GHz Dual-Core CPU, included in a Samsung Exynos 4 Dual chip with a big 1,5 GB of RAM memory. To help with graphic intensive apps, it also uses an ARM Mali-400 MP4 GPU running at 266 megahertz. A good point of this device is its quite large 16 GB internal storage and an external memory slot, allowing you to store a couple hundred apps and games without any trouble.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch features two cameras, a 5 MP back side camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front-facing camera. It can also capture videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 30 fps. In addition, the camera includes auto-focus and geo tagging.

This tablet includes wi-fi connection (but it can't be provided to other devices around, acting as a modem), 4G (LTE) fast data connection and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a slower 4G network or fast 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a SIM card for GSM services.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch counts with a 4450 mAh high capacity non-replaceable battery that provides this tablet an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to consider is that this tablet's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, whereas with so much capacity you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes an issue.

This tablet also features some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Navigation and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

Samsung is selling this tablet for only 215 dollars, which is quite a low price for a tablet this level. No matter whether you are looking for a tablet for work, want a device for gaming or are looking for a social tablet, you will probably love this device.
