My photo
I like to eat, sleep and take photos of myself. When I am not eating, sleeping or taking photos of myself, I'm gaming. L4D anyone?

The Power of Three (+ 7.0)

The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is slightly smaller version of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. As you may have already guessed from its name, it comes with 7-inch screen (duhhh) with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. A little lacking, you may think, but what it lacks in display, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 makes up with its power! Equipped with a 1.2GHZ Dual Core Processor, it can handle just about anything you want it to do smoothly and expertly.
So, let's start with the looks because its what matters most! To me, anyway. Like many other Samsung devices, the Tab 3 is made out of plastic polycarbonate and is available in white.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is one of the lightest 7-inch tablets in the market, weighing exactly 300 grams, making it extremely easy to carry around!
Storage wise, the device is fitted with 1 GB of RAM and comes with 8 GB of storage, which is expandable by 64 GB.
Camwhores need not worry, as the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has both front and back cameras (1.3 mp and 3 mp respectively)
In terms of software, the device runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It also comes with TouchWiz and WatchON's remote control feature. With a pre-installed WatchON app, you can use your Galaxy Tab 3 as a touch screen remote for any Samsung Smart TV. A touch screen remote. It just doesn't get better than this.
