Samsung is good at making super skinny, lightweight mobile devices, and the Tab 3 10.1 weighs just 1.12 lbs., making it one of the lightest tablets on the market.

The 3-megapixel back camera honestly takes pretty crappy pictures.

The display, though not high resolution, is bright and colorful thanks to Samsung's PLS technology that's similar to IPS, and the tablet is attractive even if it is cursed with Samsung's love of shiny plastic.

What makes things even better, the camera app is rich in modes and settings – lots of the fancy stuff a Galaxy S4 can do with its camera, the Tab PRO 8.4 can do as well.
