Both do a fine job, but Chrome has a slightly better optimized for touch interface and neat cross-device syncing capabilities.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0

On a more positive note, viewing angles are good (but not great), and brightness can get very high making the tablet easier to read and use outdoors.

Where the Samsung Music Hub is a simple, competitively priced by slightly charmless MP3 music store, Google Music is a boldly wide-ranging offering.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Its screen is not as sharp as we'd like (it’s the same screen Samsung used in 2010)!
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2013)
It’s a 1-megapixel front shooter with very basic quality lacking detail and sharpness, but still usable for video conferencing.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2013)
What we have in our hands is an early prototype of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 so we could not really draw any conclusions about the screen quality.

The music application sorts your catalog by songs, artists, albums and genres, and neatly it has a by-folder view.

In our general experience, the tablet comfortably stood up to a good two days of moderate use, which involved checking email, surfing the web and a little light games playing.

Operating System

For daily use and just navigation around Android though it’s mostly a smooth affair.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2013)
Its specs aren't really good enough to show off the best of the Android platform.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2013)
This experience is very similar to stock Android, with the ability to preview messages and other notifications and even respond to them from within the menu.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2013)

Operating system

While it's not quite up to iOS standards just yet, Android is home to a massive range of top quality games.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2013)
The fact that the chip is not made by a well-known company would not matter at all if it was speedy, but it delivers fairly mediocre performance when you add the strain of multitasking.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2013)
Interface: Samsung is launching the Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch running the latest version of Android available – Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
by PhoneArena (Jun, 2013)


We appreciate that Samsung includes a 1-megapixel front camera.
by PhoneArena (Jun, 2013)
Despite this lack of quality, the camera interface is reasonably intuitive.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2013)
First, because it only features a barebones 2-megapixel rear camera with no flash, and second, because it’s missing a front-facing shooter for video conferencing.
