The latest 7inch tablet from Samsung may not hold a substantial advantage over its predecessor in terms of hardware, but it has some pleasant improvements on areas that count. The 7inches Galaxy P3200 tab 3 has its own flows compared to the segment’s favorite iPad, but it prides of having the latest version of Android underneath plus a pocket friendly price tag. The number of android tablets flooding electronic shelves is impressive – it’s a cut-throat kind of competition where several factors beyond just the pricing and hardware come into play. However, Samsung P3200 galaxy tab3 has its own strong-holds; most tablets tend to be around the 10inches size, so you’d say it’s more portable and would probably slide into a standard pocket. Being a 7inch slate, it’s considerably hand-friendly than the iPad and its 10.1inch sibling – the Tab2 (10.1).
The 7inch size has its own pros and cons, but it all comes down to the consumer’s preferences – as you’d expect, the tablet is considerably lighter than its bigger siblings as well as rivals weighing only 306g, the iPad weighs almost twice. There isn’t anything in particular on the front panel beyond the display panel which consumes almost the entire part of the tab while the flip-side doesn’t impress either with Samsung’s typical plastic covers. It’s not the kind of design you’d get thrilled about, but rivals don’t do a better job either in that segment, when held firmly, it slightly flexes effectively lowering its stature from more premium tabs. Around the edge you’ll find a 3.5mm headphone jack, a volume rocker, the power connector and an SD card slot. Samsung’s 7inch Galaxy Tab3’s display panel has an almost standard 1024×600 pixels screen resolution – far below that of its predecessor (Tab 2) and premium tabs but good enough to put web-pages in the works as well as make a gallery walk-through a pleasant experience and small text not boring to read.
The 7inches galaxy P3200 Tab 3 comes packed with the latest version of android OS – Jelly Bean, giving it a heads-up against close rivals by effectively bringing new additions such as face recognition, a decent chrome browser and widget previews onboard. Underneath is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor which’s slightly speedier than that of its predecessor. Elsewhere, it’s shipped in WiFi only and 3G variants beyond the option of 8GB or 16GB internal storage.
