This tablet was given as a gift , and a fell in love with it . I highly recommend it for teens , young adults and the the older ones (65) as well . The main use for my tablet is to reading and playing games . â-�The 7" screen make it the right size to read online and offline . Also give yu the right feeling for typing or tilting and other game features. â-�The Camera .... well as person who love high definition, this camera is okay . 3MP FF + 1.3MP VT Camera is is ideal for video chatting or taking simple pictures to share with love ones . â-� this tab runs on the Android system which make it awesome for downloading apps , games , etc. â-� Battery life . Like I said before I use this tab to read and play game . Overall the battery life is great . It charge fast as well . Now if you get the tab , the features on it is similar to any Samsung phone or products. If yu don't own any Samsung products overall they are easy and simpleto use . It is very easy to find accessories for this lightweight tablet. If you get this tab you will not be disappointed

The Samsung Tab 3 7" is the company's newest release on their economy end of tablets. Sadly, the features it offers, are at about two years old, as is the pricing. Most companies add features, including increased screen resolution and quality, more internal storage, faster processors, while making the units smaller, lighter and less costly. In fairness, Samsung has done a few of these things. The Tab 3 7" is a bit lighter than the prior model (the Tab 2. 7") it is very slightly faster (a slow dual core at 1.2 GHz rather than a dual core 1.0 GHz), and it is cheaper than the original price of the Tab 2 7" when it was first released. However, along with those small improvements, Samsung also cheapened several features. The screen has a lower contract ratio than the Tab 2, important in bright room or outdoor lighting, and for some reason beyond any comprehension, except to perhaps save a few cents somewhere, they removed the On The Go cable ability via host USB, a feature just about every Android device has these days, including most if not all other Samsung Android devices, like the Tab 3 8", 10.1" and the Note series tablets. The Tab 2 7" used a 30 pin connector and they sold a nominal costing cable to convert it to a female USB connector which allowed the tablet to host interface with thumb drives, card readers, mice, keyboards and some game controllers. The Tab 3 7" can't do any of this. Samsung replaced the propriety 30 pin connector with a standard micro USB connector, which could allow for using a $1 OTG USB cable. Too bad the hardware/firmware inside doesn't support it. You have a thumb drive with videos, digital images or documents on it? Well, the only way to transfer it to your tablet is Bluetooth, WiFi or via a computer, or transfer it to a micro SD card. You have a digital camera which uses standard size SD cards, as almost all do these days? You can't look at them via the tablet directly via a card reader. Oh, and BTW, Android (Google) has STRONGLY (their emphasis) suggested all Android devices since version 3.1 (the Tab 3 7" has V4.1.2) provide a host USB port for current and future features. OK, so not everyone needs OTG USB, (although Samsung advertises this tablet as an On The Go solution). So why am I so hard in my ratings? The reason is the price of this tablet in today's market versus it's features. For about half the cost or less, you can get a tablet that has most of the same features the Tab 3 7" has, plus a host USB and likely also a direct out HDMI port. A lot has happened in the technology for tablets in the last year or two, and for the same price, or a few bucks more than the Tab 3 7", you can get a name brand tablet which has a higher resolution screen by 20-30%, with sharper output and cleaner colors, a much faster quad core processor, instead of the slow, even for its class, dual 1.2 GHz in the Tab 3 7", twice the internal storage memory (which can actually store your apps, unlike the external micro SD card in the Tab 3 7"), more RAM by 50-100% to allow for running more and larger programs together, plus get the host USB and maybe an HDMI port as well, so you can plug the tablet into a HDTV or high end computer monitor without using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, (should your HD TV even have that). I believe, generally speaking, the people who are most pleased with the Tab 3 7" are buying their first tablet, and are unfamiliar with the broader marketplace which has evolved in the last few years. There is no question that the Tab 3 7" is a starter tablet by today's standards. It does most of what's asked of it reasonably well, but then again so do most name brand tablets today, so at a much lower price it would be a good deal. It is nicely designed overall and seems to have a good build quality, but it is just plain old technology with a new number on it.
Best things about this tablet 1) light 2) fast and powerful 3) fits right into my back pocket for easy carrying! 4) SD Card port for extra storage (trust me, you'll need it) 5) long battery life 6) durable screen (I've dropped it atleast 7 times and not a single scratch) 7) good sound quality 8) ecelent price must i go on?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
We paid almost tree times what the price is right now the firsts weeks when it came out... I guest this is happening with all Samsung products, they devaluate overnight! Good tablet, very fast and responsive, I love the IR feature to control all my house TVs and Blu-rays.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Average for short term fix-maybe not for long term use of tablet

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Tablet:
I bought a tablet for each of my two kids, a white one and a brown one, for Christmas last year. I felt like I did a fair amount of research before selecting the Samsung Tablets (based off of reviews and price.) We thought the quality and performance was awesome for the first month or so. But once the kids loaded an app or two onto their tablets, each began having performance issues. Slow to load, slow to play, sometimes they lock up. I had to return one because it would not charge with the provided charger and we couldn't even turn it on. After a lot of back and forth with the people that deal with the warranty, I was finally able to get the brown tablet fixed and sent back. (The inside charging port was somehow damaged.) I thought they were rather spendy for the amount of storage you get. They do work awesome for emails, sports updates, etc. But when it comes to watching videos or playing games, they can be unreliable. I would highly recommend purchasing a warranty if you purchase this tablet. High storage would be good too, assuming that helps the performance. Sleek design, durable as far as the device (not so much the charging port), and they look nice. My recommendation would be to do a lot of research before purchasing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
