Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-T2110 Full Review

1.Design : The Samsung galaxy tab 3 SM-T2110 has a new improved design which corresponds to a flat bar. It is easier to hold in hand due to the good grip of plastic body. The tablet is much lighter than its previous versions, so holding it in hand for a long time won't give you wrist pain, it just weighs only 304 grams. The camera is positioned at center on the rear side. At the bottom you will find two capacitive touch buttons with back-light and a home button in the middle. The design of galaxy tab 3 is similar to Samsung flagship devices like galaxy note.

2.OS And Features : The Samsung galaxy tab 3 runs on android 4.1.2 jellybean OS with Samsung apps like all share play, group play, Samsung link, dropbox (50 GB storage space free). Smart stay feature is also present, in which screen won't go off if you looking at it. A new feature called Wi-Fi channel bonding utilizes 2 channels (dual band) to double your access for faster transactions and connections (143 Mbps).

3.Screen : The galaxy tab 3 7.0 features a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024x600 pixels with a pixel density of 169 ppi. The screen is not very bright as compared to its predecessor galaxy tab 2. The screen is just normal TFT LCD with 16 M colors. While playing HD videos and games the screen will definitely disappoint you. It doesn't have PLS LCD touch screen as in its previous version galaxy tab 2. The screen contrast is very low and colors are not vibrant enough. The screen displays feeble colors which is very bad. Besides having 16 M colors display and 169 ppi the galaxy tab 3 SM-T2110 screen is not very good for playing HD games and viewing HD videos.

4.Camera : It has two cameras. The primary camera is 3.15 MP and is located at the top center on the rear side. The camera has a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels and can record videos at 30 fps. The rear camera is fine enough to take photos in day light. Due to lack of a led flash the photos will be dull in low light. The front camera is 1.3 MP and can be used for self shot and video calling. It also lacks camera auto focus feature.

5.Storage And Memory : The galaxy tab 3 has an inbuilt storage of 8GB and it can be further expanded to 32 GB via micro sd card slot. Applications can't be installed on sd card, and you have to install them on the tablet only. It has 1 GB of RAM out of which 770 MB is user available and rest is android system reserved. So apps would run smoothly due to this enough amount of RAM.

6.CPU : It has Marvell PXA988 1.2 GHz dual core application processor which is quite good enough for playing heavy android games. The cpu can handle apps running simultaneously smoothly. Dual core cpu is good for gaming because android games won't lag and hang on the tablet.

7.Battery : The galaxy tab 3 has 4000 mAh battery which can stay more than 1 day. The battery is powerful enough to power any keyboard, mouse and a flash drive. You can see this tutorial to connect keyboard, mouse and USB flash/pen drives to your galaxy tab 3.

8.Video Playback : The galaxy tab 3 can play any video format including the avi, mpeg, mp4, divx, wmv, h263, h264 and mkv (matroska video). So you don't need to convert videos as you can directly put them in your tablet and play them in Samsung video player. 720p HD videos are fully supported, but screen resolution may disappoint you.
