Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch is a mid-end device released back in 2013, having an extremely powerful 1500 MHz Dual-Core processing unit, a quite big 8 inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back camera and a 1.3 MP front side camera.

This tablet is equipped with a high-tech 1500 megahertz Dual-Core processor, bundled in the Samsung Exynos 4 Dual system chip with a huge 1,5 GB of RAM. To help with graphic intensive tasks, the Tab 3 8-inch also counts with an ARM Mali-400 MP4 GPU working at 266 megahertz. A key advantage of this tablet is the 32 GB inmense internal storage and an SD extension slot, which allows you to store hundreds of apps without worrying about running out of space.

Samsung made a very nice job making this tablet weight only 11.25 oz. The Tab 3 8-inch is a compact device, taking into account that it presents a 8" display and it is just 8.26" long and 4.87" wide. This tablet is just 0.29" thick, making its way into the thinnest tablets podium.

This tablet features two cameras, a 5 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front-facing camera. This device can also film videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera features geo tagging and auto-focus.

The Tab 3 8-inch is equipped with a good 8" screen with a 800 x 1280 resolution, which makes all photos and videos look good. Its screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This tablet features a high capacity 4450 mAh non-replaceable battery providing this tablet a great battery life. An issue to consider is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, even though with such a big battery you will probably replace this device before that happens.

The Tab 3 8-inch has Wi-Fi connectivity (although it can't be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high performance internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a lower speed 4G technology or fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Tab 3 8-inch uses a SIM card for GSM networks.

The Tab 3 8-inch also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth tablets, computers and accessories), GPS Navigation and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This tablet is being sold for just $ 229, a good offer for comparing with other similar tablets. No matter whether you need a tablet for gaming, need a work tablet or need a tablet to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, you will definitely be very pleased with this tablet.
