New to tablets I cannot give a full review of the Samsung Tablet 3 8.0 as it is the first one I have ever used. Seem to be getting on OK with it although I am probably missing lots as there are no instructions for a newby like myself. Good for downloading textbooks if you are studying and a good size. If you know your way around a tablet device this is probably as good as any. 08 April 2014
Superb My previous tablet had been a cheap one to help me evaluate whether I really needed one. Eventually I selected the Samsung Tab 3 over another make as it had a socket for a micro USB card. The display is amazing and some of the built in Samsung features make it easy to operate and easy to integrate with a PC if this is one of your requirements. Highly recommended. 08 April 2014
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Tablet Bought this for my wife to keep her off my computer and it worked!! She has found this tablet quick and easy to use, mainly for Facebook and Hotmail. Just getting to grips with all the games that are available for our Granddaughter, the few that we have so far keep her well occupied. Tried three different brands of tablet myself, sent them back for various reasons (mainly poor Wi-Fi connection), so decided to buy another Samsung Tab 3 8" for myself, no problems so far (had it two days). Quick to boot up and you can check emails within a minute - saves putting on a my main PC which takes much longer to boot up etc. and therefore you feel obliged to sit in front of it all day - not so with the tablet on and off, saves time and earache!! Only four stars because they are pricey for what you can do with them. This has a quality feel about it in relation to the others I had, they either felt plastic or rubberised - get yourself one while stocks last!! 03 April 2014
Ideal Companion The tablet is very user friendly and intuitive to use. I found the 8 inch screen has excellent definition and much easier to carry around compared to larger models. The screen size is similar to that of a book page which makes it ideal for reading. It was supplied with an external memory card which doubled its capacity. Overall I am very happy with this product. 01 April 2014
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 I have always wanted a mini tablet portable to carry around and am glad this Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 does the job. Excellent quality and a good size fits in my handbag. 27 March 2014
love this tab This is an upgrade to my samsung tab 2 7.0. Love this tablet. Screen is perfect size as I used to own 10inch tab. This is more portable can easily put in my hand bag without taking too much space. This charged quicker than samsung tab 2 7.0. 27 March 2014
very powerful gadget as powerful as a standard desktop this tablet have all you need..also it's very light and easy to use. highly recommended! 26 March 2014
Cannot Bluetooth Videos This is an excellent tablet with a really good camera and perfect in size. However, it lets itself down by not being able to to send personal videos to either my wife's or my Samsung Galaxy smartphone via Bluetooth. Videos between the phones are OK though. I spoke to John Lewis technical support who were not aware of the problem. They put me on to Samsung support who confirmed that this was the case but did not know why. They suggest that I search the web for a video converter app. That will be my next step but if it is possible then surely Samsung should provide it 26 March 2014
