Rated 5 out of 5 by DEBI55 Samsung Galaxy Tab® 3 8.0 Gold Brown is FANTASTIC
FANTASTIC - I went to many sites to review this tablet to the iPad and this one came out way ahead of the iPad in so many ways. I was so happy with my purchase that I bragged and bragged to a friend at work until she finally purchased one. To date she is twice as happy with hers as well, even though she also has an iPad, she is always with her Galaxy 3 8.0 tablet. The picture, sound and all the apps are superb. I can't say enough how much I love my tablet. My mother has alzheimers and I have loaded a memory game on it to help her when I am with her. I only wish I had one to give her!
Thanks Samsung for designing this tablet, it's the BOMB! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by marmite my first tablet
Im really pleased with it, there was a minor fault only 3 months after getting tab, but it was quickly sorted, we are human so this happens, I was so impressed that I decided to get more samsung items, HD tv and 3D bluray player system, also pleased with.
The tab fills in quite nicely as a pc, it synchronised with outlook which I use a lot, and with a free office package I can still open and update my documents, saying that it was a bit better after I got a bluetooth keyboard, so utilising the sceen full, a lot more portable than my net book pc, and again with free apps connected to wifi printer, so all in all a good bit of kit

Rated 4 out of 5 by bozden Great product, but be careful
This tablet is great, beautiful, fast, easy to use. The only think I caution is that you absolutely must buy a heavy duty protective case for it because it is very fragile. I had mine in a leather case and it dropped from about a foot off ground onto the floor and it completely broke the screen. This happened after two weeks of ownership, so my disappointment was considerable. The product itself is great...just be sure you are very careful with it or get a heavy duty case, or you could end up having a great product with a cracked screen...lesson learned. That being said, I recommend it to anyone looking for a well priced feature rich tablet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by New to tablets Nice unit
Only had it for a couple of weeks. Display is very good, it's easy to use and a god size ( 8" ), seems fast to use too.. However design. Why place two stereo speakers on the bottom ? If you hold it sideways as you would to view a film etc, then both speakers are on one side ? Or if you hold it upright, they speakers are at bottom or top, or even against your body when sitting. It is lightweight and easy to use though
Also bought a Samsung SDXC UHS-1 64gb memory card...transfer speeds are nowhere near the claims for the card ? around 18mb/s read and 10mb/s write. Card claims up to 70mb/s read. Is that a card limitation or tablet ? Not a big deal so far though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by chicchera Stopped charging and now I have a brick
It all went well for 3 monthe then, all of a sudden, the battery charging went crazy, regardless of the charger used: it tells you that is 45% charged and in a few minutes it reports 100%; ofcourse, as soon as you try to use it the battery is back to 45% and draining fast. Or it will not charge at all. Or if plugged, even if in airplane mode and being used only for reading offline, the battery goes down or, if lucky, remains the same, without ever charging. And then, sometimes, depending on my luck, it charges, but the number shown is never to be trusted: it can go down in 2 or 3 minutes from 100 to 50%.
All in all, I am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mmedinafeb Awesome Tablet
I had been wishing for a Tablet and had done my research before I purchased my Galaxy Tab 3. In fact this is my first tablet ever. I had looked at others within the same price range and I found that when I handled it in person - this was exactly what I was looking for. I love the resolution and I enjoy taking pictures and posting them to Face Book. The processor is as fast as i ndicated. In fact, I enjoy using it more than desk top computer. It fits perfect in my purse and I like the convenience of taking this light weight tablet anywhere. There are so many other features that it comes with that a beginner like me can't wait to explore!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lauriekate For my 6 year old
I bought this tablet after the Nabi for my 6 year old. He filled the Nabi's memory in the first week with games and videos. We gave the Nabi to my 2 year old. This tablet has been great for my 6 year old. The price was less than the "kids" tablets (but we did have to buy a case....$20 online) and he can use it for the future...I hope. The only problem I have had is that it stopped charging but I think he may have stressed it by trying to play it while charging it. We sent it back and they will repair it so that's great!
In all, we have been very happy with it. It's easy to use and a life saver in doctors offices and car rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by greybeard58 Improvement on a Legacy
I have been a fan of the Samsung Galaxy family of tablets since I purchased the first one many years ago. Though it is bulky and slow by today's standards this tablet is still in use today, accessing the internet and streaming music and movies. When I purchased the Galaxy Tab 2 it was a wonder how many improvements and features were added, but - for me - the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 was fastest, classiest, and coolest tablet out there. Multi-screen, larger Micro-SD support, light and sleek, shining white and amazing resolution. It will remain my favorite until I purchase the new Galaxy Tab S later this year. Long live Samsung.
