Editor Rating: 3.9 / 5

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is  be obvious amongst the most logical brand name tablets out there however does competitive mean great worth for the cash?

On the positive side, the little, 7-inch Android tablet offers the consoling Samsung logo (its not made by an obscure white-box organization), and the flawless, overall upgraded for tablets Touch wiz client interface. Be that as it may, despite the fact that the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite does not have any appalling imperfections, it basically can't flex much execution muscle. It's got a fundamental double center processor, a low-determination showcase and a barebones 2-megapixel Camera..

How does that all work out in genuine living, and would it be able to stand in comparison to some greatly reasonable, yet predominant mechanically Android tablets? Masters tried a preproduction unit of the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite that provides for us a great thought of what we can want - examine.

The Tab 3 Lite characteristics limited screen bezels that make it smaller and less demanding to hold; its rotund, additionally lightweight.

A fruit does not fall a long way from the tree - this expression may as well abridge well the common Samsung look and the outline of the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. This tablet is the profound successor to the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, and has fundamentally the same equipment, as well as about indistinguishable visuals with it. Yes, that would not joke about this is all plastic.

Our preproduction test unit accompanies a lemon yellow textured plastic back, like the fake cowhide one of the Galaxy Note 3, yet it appears as though what we have is a more constrained version of the tablet, and the nonexclusive one could emphasize just dark or white shades, and accompany a reflexive completion.

As far as size, it is minimized in general, with decently thin bezel , yet a spot pudgy measuring a significant 0.38 inches (9.7mm). Fortunately, it is likewise decently lightweight at only 0.68 pounds (310 g), so you can effortlessly hold it for more times of time.

We would prefer not to reach any last determinations, however the physical catches on our test gadget accompany a decent travel and clickiness, and are not difficult to press. On the right side there are a lock key and volume rocker, and on the left is micro sd card opening.

170ppi only neglects to meet present day desires for sharpness.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite characteristics an extremely unassuming 1024 x 600-pixel 7-inch show that only neglects to meet current desires for tablet sharpness. Pixel thickness comes in at around 170ppi, so you'll without a doubt have inconvenience perusing minor fonts without zooming in.

One characteristic that is annoyingly lost on the Tab 3 Lite is a surrounding light sensor, so you'll need to physically conform screen brilliance each time your light conditions change.

Interface and Functionality

It may not have the most recent Android rendition, however it offers a great advanced for tablets Touch wiz client interface with scene help and enhanced multitasking.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is currently about a year old. We all wish for the most recent rendition of Android, however since this is a reasonable apparatus and since the changes that later forms of Google's stage carries are not that significant, we might not by any means think about this as an immense downside.

What we totally love about the Tab 3 Lite is Samsung's Touch wiz skin that is stacked on top of Android. Touch wiz could be a polarizing skin for cell phones where some could contend that stock Android is leaner and cleaner, yet we discover Samsung's client interface to be an extraordinary fit for tablets. It includes two key characteristics that we discover to enhance the tablet encounter a great deal: the first is scene mode in the home screen and application drawer, and the second one is the multi-window characteristic for better multitasking.

All the center Samsung and Google applications are here also. Google's Play Store as well as its Youtube, Maps, Gmail, Drive and Hangouts blanket a ton of the things individuals do on their cell phones, and Samsung's applications, for example, S Calendar, the Chaton moment dispatcher, the extraordinary Gallery, the fitting two-section Contacts application and Samsung's music player supplement them well.

Writing on the 7-inch presentation is agreeable as you have enough space for both of your thumbs to rapidly hit the binds that are bigger and simpler to hit than on a cell phone. Independent writing, obviously, is not functional.

Processor and Memory

It runs on an unassuming double center chip, yet our preproduction unit was consummately equipped for running the interface and cool recreations like Temple Run 2 easily.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite runs on an extremely lower double center chip, yet with its low-res show, it additionally won't put excessively of a strain on it, and we anticipate that the unit will perform moderately easily in day by day utilization. We introduced some cool recreations like Temple Run 2 and they all ran superbly well on the tablet. Still, don't hope to have the capacity to play the most recent recreations like Real Racing 3 or Asphalt 8 without a falter - you'd have the ability to run them, however risks are they won't run impeccably smooth.

The precise chip that powers the Tab 3 Lite show is the 1.2ghz Marvell Pxa986 unit (Cortex A9-based) with Vivante Gc1000 representation processor, and 1gb of RAM.

We'd refrain from any last judgments about the Tab 3 Lite's execution since what we have is not the last unit. In our last audit, you'd additionally find decisive benchmark tests of the tablet.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite characteristics just 8gb of interior space, yet fortunately, you can stretch that through micro sd cards of up to 64 GB.

Connection And Network

The Tab 3 Lite The Tab 3 Lite arrives in a $160 Wi-Fi-just model and a $240 3g-empowered adaptation.

You can surf the web through the implicit Android program or on Google's portable Chrome. Both make a fine showing, however Chrome has a marginally better improved for touch interface and slick cross-gadget matching up proficiencies.

Regarding connectivity, the Tab 3 Lite characteristics a solitary channel Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS, yet it needs NFC.

It's critical to note that the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite comes in two variants - a Wi-Fi-just model that does not help cell information connectivity, and a 3g-empowered (more unmanageable) unified with information that is liable to help conventional calling and messaging also. This review is of the Wi-Fi-just model.


A front-confronting camera is woefully missing, and the back 2-megapixel shooter looks exceptionally barebones.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite photographic abilities are amazingly restricted. First and foremost, since it just characteristics a barebones 2-megapixel back camera with no glimmer, and second, in light of the fact that its forgetting a front-confronting shooter for film conferencing. Genuinely, we'd incline toward having a front camera on a tablet instead of a back confronting one, however it is the thing that it is.

The interface is the old Samsung one, without the extravagant shooting modes you may have seen in the Galaxy S4, yet its still an exceptionally utilitarian layout pressed with characteristics. You can do things like catch a surrounding picture, apply channels, change the white parity, set a clock, and others on this rich interface.

Better Multi Media Feature

Samsung claims it can playback 8 hours of non-stop motion picture.

Mixed media is the bread and margarines of tablets, and with the overall constrained abilities of the Tab 3 Lite, its considerably more paramount. The 7-inch presentation could be little in tablet guidelines, yet its much bigger than most cell phones out there, so watching movies or looking at pictures is an agreeable experience.

The inherent film player is fit for running most regular organizations without breaking a sweat (we played back 720p films without a stammer), yet some codec backing like Divx is absent in our preproduction test unit. You can effortlessly settle that, however, with a speedy download of an application like the free MX Player from Google Play Store. In particular, Samsung claims the Tab 3 Lite can play up to 8 hours of non-stop movie - slick!

We cherish the Gallery experience with Samsung's two-section application that makes bouncing between collections of photographs simple, and includes essential picture altering capacities.

For music, you have the Google Play Music application plus Samsung's own particular music player, keeping in mind both accomplish the occupation, we have a tendency to favor Samsung's requisition for its less difficult interface, decent equalizer presets and envelope perspective backing.

Experts Hands On

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite may as well go on special soon in the United States with a beginning cost of the precise moderate $160, and it will be sold in Best Buy and other vast retailers. In Europe the value is situated at around €160 and in the UK the tablet costs £117 gbp. Every one of those costs are for the Wi-Fi just model, while the 3g cell information empowered form is required to cost around $240 (€240 in Europe).

There is undoubtedly this is a moderate cost, particularly for a brand name tablet, however this does not would not joke about this is incredible quality for the cash. The Tab 3 Lite's low-res presentation, lowly double center processor, 8gb of space and barebones 2-megapixel Polaroid look unimportant on paper when contrasted against different tablets and all the more transforming force, higher-res shows and twofold the space. Such contenders might be the 2012 Nexus 7 and Asus Memo pad HD 7, both of which accompany higher-res screens, additionally handling force and interior space.

At last, as moderate as the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite looks, it appears a spot overpriced for what it offers. Truth be told, we have recently seen mechanisms like the 2012 Nexus 7 with better particulars, yet offering at a comparable value, that might would appear that an improved decision.
