Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Hands On: My Likes and Dislikes


Another disappointing tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. This is one of the three tablets from Samsung launched recently. I was expecting significant improvements like better screen quality, build and processing power. But then again, I’m still disappointed. The one available on retail is the WiFi only version. But before I list down the likes and dislikes, lets go on with the specs.




Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 specs:

  • 1.6GHz Dual Core Intel Atom Z2560 processor
  • PowerVR SGX544MP2
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB internal memory expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB
  • 10.1 inch TFT display (1280 x 800 pixels) 149 ppi
  • Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Dolby Surround Sound Enhancement
  • 3.15 megapixel rear facing camera
  • 1.3 megapixel front facing camera
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, WiFi Direct, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0
  • GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • 6,800 mAh battery
  • Android 4.2.2 Jellybean
  • SRP: P 16,990


  • Android 4.2 Jellybean already.
  • Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Affordable!


  • Low resolution screen
  • Laggy performance even on simple tasks despite Intel Atom processor
  • Poor camera performance
  • Cheap plastic build
  • Scratch prone back plastic

Verdict:  Save a few bucks and get the Google Nexus 10 which is P1,000 more at Kimstore. It is a much better tablet than the Tab 3 10.1.
