Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch is a fascinating tablet released back in the year 2013, having a pretty big 8 inches multi-touch display, an extremely fast 1.5 GHz Dual-Core processing unit, and 2 cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front side camera. Let's take a closer view of what this tablet can do.

This tablet feels much lighter than what one would expect from a tablet like this. The Tab 3 8-inch is extremely slim and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.29 inches. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch only has 8.26 inches long, but it is able to fit a a 8 inches screen.

Samsung equipped the Tab 3 8-inch with a interesting 8" display, and a 800 x 1280 resolution, which makes everything look quite colorful and brightful. This display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

Samsung ships the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch with a Samsung Exynos 4 Dual system chip, which holds a very powerful Dual-Core processing unit running at 1.5 gigahertz with a huge 1,5 GB RAM memory. Graphic calculations generally eats lots of processor cycles, so it also has an ARM Mali-400 MP4 graphic processing unit speeding at 266 MHz to take care of them, leaving the processor free for other tasks. A nice advantage of this tablet is the 16 GB quite large internal storage and a slot for an external memory card, which allows you to install hundreds of apps and games without any problem.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch counts with Wi-Fi capability (although it can't be shared with other devices around, acting as a modem or router), 4G LTE fast internet connection and also HSPA+ data connection, a lower speed 4G type and fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.3 megapixels front camera. This tablet can also film videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 30 frames per second. The camera also features geo tagging and auto-focus.

This device features a 4450 mAh incredible non-replaceable battery that can keep this tablet running for several hours without having to charge it. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, even though having 4450 mAh you will probably replace this portable tablet before it becomes a real problem.

This tablet also comes with a handful of useful features as Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The Tab 3 8-inch is probably a bit overvalued considering it is offerred for $ 215, while other similar tablets are offerred cheaper than that. No matter if you want it majorly for social networks and internet browsing, are looking for a gaming tablet, need a work tablet device or want this portable tablet to take plenty of photographs, this device is definitely the right choice .
