Heavier loads would definitely drain it much faster, though, and running some extrapolations, we’d say that it can last around 9 hours playing back video, which is a great result, on par with the industry leaders like the Nexus 7.

Benchmarks Real world tests of Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 vs 7.0

geekbench Processor and memory performance

However, while TouchWiz is maturing into a decent Android skin, Samsung's inclusion of a meagre dual-core processor has hobbled the Tab 3 8.0's performance dramatically.

GLBenchmark 2.7 3D graphics performance

The exact chip that powers the Tab 3 Lite show is the 1.2GHz Marvell PXA986 unit (Cortex A9-based) with Vivante GC1000 graphics processor, and 1GB of RAM.

Combine the high price, poor performance and below par build quality, and it's hard to find any reason to recommend this new Samsung Tab.
