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.

As with other Samsung devices, you can choose from a few color modes (dynamic, standard and movie) for different levels of color saturation, and there's a new Reading mode that's a little easier on the eyes when reading ebooks.

geekbench Processor and memory performance

Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Galaxy Note 8.0 @ browser.primatelabs.com
With a dual-core 1GHz processor and relatively low-density 1,024 x 600 resolution screen, it's hardly cutting edge but performance is solid and build is good.
