Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0” 8 GB Tablet with Wi-Fi and 3G


Samsung’s Tab 3 lite has been dubbed the “toddler” of its bigger brother, the Tab 3, but it’s far more mature than the name suggests.

The Tab 3 Lite is a compact 7-incher that is able to deal with day-to-day tasks efficiently. It’s also ultra-portable, making it a wonderful device for someone with a fast-paced lifestyle; important documents can be stored and transferred very easily.

The downside is that Samsung has opted to leave out a front-facing camera – so if you’re a selfie fan, this isn’t the tablet for you. The primary is only 2 MP and so it’s alright for stand-and-shoot photos, but don’t expect much more.

The resolution is also a bit disappointing; at only 600 x 1024 pixels, it’s a sub-par resolution, but for the generous price tag, this is not unexpected. It is easy to use, compact and it is comfortable to operate with one hand, which is fantastic.

There is no doubt that this is a little fighter that you can rely on to get the job(s) done, well!
