This review is from: SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 1GB Memory 16GB 10.1" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
Other Thoughts: Long story short, got the TAB 3 10.1 4 weeks ago but could not justify its price tag back then (400,-+) did some research and got the Note 10.1 2014 edition which had bad flashlight bleeding so returned it for a refund. Was looking around for what to do next, ipad air? overpriced...(although the same thing for the Note I got, a tablet should be around 300 bucks, in my eyes its still a toy, nice to have around but not too serious). Almost got a Sony Xperia Z 10.1 but was sold out for its saleprice. Then Newegg offered a refurb TAB 3 for 299,- as a 48hr sale. Ordered it and was within 24Hrs from the East of Canada delivered to my doorstep in the West (thank you Purolator!) My findings so far, nice toy for me and my wife with a decent screen, although some bleeding, but that's normal I guess, the only thing I did not like was that I turned the brightness up to 100% put the screen on VIVID and after a while the screen dims, when I checked the brightness setting it says, brightness turned down to avoid overheating? The same issue you can find on the galaxy phones I read later. But, put the setting back to its original setting and no dimming issues so far. Perfect tablet for browsing, emailing, syncing Youtube with my SMART Samsung TV, using it as a remote for my home theatre. For 300,- I can justify its price, but 400,-? No then I want to see at least an HD screen and how about including a case/cover/keyboard/stand? o sorry, ASUS does that, Microsoft Surface does that (both depending on the package you buy for example). I deducted one egg because of the screen issue (bleeding, overheating) and the fact that the tablet feels a bit dated. I had the 1st version of this tablet, and although this Tab3 has some upgrades, its not that much of a difference with the 1st version I bought back in 2011. After one day I will keep an eye on the overheating issue, if it persists I will return the tablet, but as a refurb I will only get another refurb to see if that one is okay. Always keep in mind if you buy a tablet that no tablet is perfect, there will always be something also depending on the needs from that specific individual. Give a red apple to one person and he will loves it, give the same red apple to another and he will spit it out.....sorry APPLE :-)
