While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 has been out on the market for a few months now, it is still impressing customers as more continue to buy it.
It was just last year that Samsung had released the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, already making a rather decent improvement from the original tablet. With this third generation of the Samsung tablet lineup, it seems to not only function as a much higher capacity, but really so far so good in terms of consumer use. It’s design is durable, the interior is impressive, and above all it is not going to break the bank when you buy it.
This Samsung tablet is built with a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 (it is found in the Android actually); it has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage as well as an IR blaster. All things considered right off the bat, this tab is built for both speed and storage; it is certainly up there with its greatest competitor in terms of both. Battery life has improved and all other functionalities within the tablet have also become much more efficient and quick in their delivery.
The outside is actually built of plastic. This could be an approach that was similarly taken recently by Apple with their iPhone 5C. It is not going to shatter on you when you drop it, and it is going to cost you substantially less than a tablet that is made from glass and metal. So really, this is a positive for those who are not willing to shell out the money for a tablet, and it really doesn’t change the aesthetic of the tab.
The screen has an HD display of 1,280 x 800 resolution. Some have argued that this is not good enough for the tab, but picture is crisp and clean, making any viewing or game play much more enjoyable.
The built-in 3-megapixel camera provides excellent shots that have balanced color and detailed images. You are even able to capture action shots with the camera, as well as add filters, create white balances, toggle with the exposure, and create fun background scenes if you’d like.
When it comes to the software it’s hard to beat what you automatically get with a Samsung device. Every Google product is immediately available, as well as Music Hub, Music Player, and S Planner. Third party downloads are also readily available to download like Dropbox, Peel Smart Remote, and many others. This is a very big perk of going with a Samsung tablet; you have numerous resources available to you right away.
With Samsung asking for $400.00 on the latest version of the 10.1 series, it’s very hard for competition to beat. Sure, there are the small things that some have called out, namely the fact it is made of plastic, but this device is anything but full of shortcomings. It is definitely a product that is not to be overlooked.
