Galaxy Tab 3 8.0" 07/12/2014
I love the 8 inch screen. It's the perfect size and that extra inch of screen real estate over the 7 inch really makes a difference.
The screen is bright and clear, despite not having the very highest level of resolution by today's standards.
The touchscreen is very responsive and the keyboard (onscreen) is big enough that you don't have trouble hitting the correct key every time.
I like the fact that you can add up to 64 MB of additional storage via a micro SDXC card.
The WiFi seems to work very well. It's fast and the range seems to be exceptional. I took the tab clear to the back of my lot and never lost my WiFi connection.
The GPS works great. This is a high priority for me.
I was surprised how fast this tablet took a charge, compared to several of my other Android devices.
My refurbished unit is like new. I wouldn't know it wasn't new but for the non-retail packaging.
Can't stream videos from Am***n Prime.
I had to change the setting where the tablet automatically verifies that you're looking at the screen or it turns the screen off. It just didn't seem to work right. Maybe it's because of my glasses.
I have several other Android devices, including an Am***n Fire HD, and this Galaxy Tab 3 is my favorite (by far).
I am super impressed with this tablet, and I'm not impressed easily. The size, weight, thin bezel, and pure usability are great!
From what I've read, the new Galaxy Tab 4 really isn't much of an improvement over this tablet. Save some money and get the Galaxy Tab 3, and save some more money by buying the refurbished model.
