Good tablet in 10″ range, could have been better There are too many tablets these days, right?! Samsung’s third generation of Galaxy Tab series is highly anticipated and for this price point phenomenal. I have been using Galaxy Tab 2 and I will compare and contrast here. I played around with review units of all sizes and I have since returned them. My reviews are unbiased and neutral! 7 and 8″ are ideal for plane trips, long journeys. I had used a 7″ Tablet on a long journey to listen to songs and read epub books (Aldiko) and it was a very pleasant experience. 7″ form factor is lightweight, compact and great. If you are a bit experienced and can afford it, I recommend the 8″. Samsung has made 8 and 7″ almost same weight. In my opinion 8″ is the maximum value for the money and features and hence I gave 8″ a 5 star. I gave 7″ a 4 star (but no means undermining it). I gave the 10″ also a 4 star because of some strange feature `limitations’. In my opinion, 8″ is ideal for consumer use and 10″ is marketed for specific segments in business who use for spreadsheets, presentations, remote desktop like Citrix GoToMeeting.Samsung has introduced 7″, 8″ and 10.1″ of the Tab 3 series. They are entering all form factors. As I know they have something in 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10″ lines. Woo.. All of the 7, 8, 10″ Galaxy Tabs come in white and golden brown color. My preference is white color. Looks pretty!Let’s start off with salient points of all of the Galaxy Tab 3 series. I will later compare this specific 10.1in model to the previous Tab 2 version.7-inch tablet: 1024 x 600, Marvell dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB storage or ROM, a microSD card slot (upto 64 GB), Camera: 3MP rear-facing, 1.3MP front-facing and weighs 10.58 ounces (300 grams). Android 4.1.28-inch model: 1280 x 800, Exynos 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB ram, 16GB of built-in storage (ROM), a microSD slot (upto 64 GB, 5MP rear-facing, 1.3MP front-facing and 10.9 ounce (309 grams) Android 4.210.1-inch model: 1280 x 800, Intel Atom 1.6GHz Z2560 dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, a 16GB built-in storage (ROM), a microSD slot, 3.2MP rear-facing, 1.3MP front-facing and weighs 17.99 oz (510 grams). Android 4.2I am not going into other details like accelerometer etc as they are all standard these days, Audio support – AAC, AMR, MP3, OGG, WMA/ASF, 3GA/M4A, FLAC, WAV; MP3/MP4/Music Tones; Music Player; Ringtones, Polyphonic. Video support: AVI/DIVX, WMV/ASF, FLV, MKV, MP4/3GP, WEBM; Video Player; Video Streaming. Software is current of release date, and it is expected could be upgraded as next version Android 5 Key Lime Pie. (Currently targeted for Oct 2013). Key Lime Pie’s one of the main touting points is compatibility to avoid fragmentation, so I can foresee, all of these models being able to upgrade if Google keeps their promise.The 10.1″ has a physical home button so are others in the series. Also has capacitive Back and Menu buttons. 64 GB SD card is awesome! With prices plummeting for 64 GB cards, it is a great boon. Put all your music, books, photos on the SD card and you have a powerful computer in hand always! I personally use the 64 GB microSD card on my mobile devices. Get this mobileUltra (.I will compare the 10.1 Tab 3 with Tab 2. Big improvement in weight, I would like the 10in series to break lower 400 grams ground. This probably has to wait another 2-3 years. Another difference gtom previous gen is the processor. Intel Atom Z2560. Tablets are nowadays coming with Intel for their excellent power saving capabilities. Asus Fonepad was one of the first to come out with a Intel based chipset. I really am waiting for the day the 10″ are even lightweight and holdable. The Tab 3 is 510 grams compared to 589 grams of Tab 2. Resolutions are same 1280 x 800 pixels, 10.1 inches (~149 ppi pixel density). The resolution is a same as in Tab 3 8″ which means 8″ will be sharper. I am disappointed with lower resolution on the 10″. One big puzzling factor for me with the premium price the 10″ has only 1 GB RAM. What the ?! Why can’t they put a 2 GB RAM on this monster of a device. I really wonder what the design team had in mind. The Tab has – Dolby Surround sound enhancement, it does sound good! Both have Bluetooth 4.0″ and have USB Host. USB Host is one of the most under noticed features of Androids and is in my opinion one of the best features compared to iPad lines. What this means you get a USB Host cable also otherwise called OTG (On the Go) cables and plug in your USB thumb drive or other USB devices and the device recognizes it. I have used it with Alfa AWUS036H for a wireless project with Android PCAP Capture from reputable Kismet wireless. Both have same camera 3.15 MP, 2048×1536 pixels and 720p@30fps. Front facing is for skype. Again camera…
Great all around tablet! I had been a iphone user for a few generations and moved to android when iphone 5 underwhelmed me. After about 6 months on an andoid phone I decided to give this andriod tablet a try to replace my ipad. Glad I did. Very fast and responsive. Videos play without delay and it makes a great business companion device. The Tab 3 10.1 super light and a very elegant design. Highly recommended in form and function.
