Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Main disadvantages:

If you're looking for a compact and inexpensive tablet - one you wouldn't worry about getting lost or damaged - this is as good a choice as any. This tablet is a stripped down version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. Want to use SKYPE? Sorry, no front facing camera. Want to attach a USB stick, mouse or keyboard? Sorry, no USB OTG support. The tablet is extremely basic, primarily for tasks like reading and sending email, reading a book or magazine, watching Netflix or streaming music. The tablet works ok for what it is and I get about 6-9 hours out of the battery before recharge depending upon how I am using it.
The tablet will work well as a travel tablet, or one for the kids to use. Just don't expect too much of it.


The ASUS MeMo Pad HD7 costs the same as the Samsung tablet but has better screen resolution, faster quad-core processor, front camera, higher-res rear camera and is lighter.
The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 matches the Lite in all aspects: display size and resolution, Android version, battery but adds a front camera, better rear camera, USB OTG and a more powerful processor at the expense of a little extra thickness and weight.

Again, not a bad tablet for the price, but there are other tablets available with better specs for the same money. If this tablet were priced between $100 and $120, it would be a good deal. At $150+, it's just too expensive for what you get.
