User Reviews 1 User Reviews Performance exceeded expectations somewhat, though some lagginess remained. The Android control buttons on the sides proved frustrating in portrait orientation.

Samsung recently unveiled its latest 10-inch Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. The technology giant touted it as the premier tablet experience. However, early reviews suggest Samsung missed the mark given its high price and mediocre features.

The Tab 3 10.1 sports a 10.1-inch 1280×800 TFT display powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor with 1GB of RAM. It offers 32GB of storage, expandable via a microSD card slot. The tablet runs Android 4.2 out of the box along with Samsung's TouchWiz customizations.

Reviewers found the display quality lackluster, with more pixelation than expected. The plastic construction exudes a cheap feel, accumulating fingerprints easily.

Performance proves underwhelming, with frequent lag and crashing of 3D games. The mediocre 3MP rear and 1.3MP front cameras provided blurry, washed out images.

On the upside, reviewers praised battery life, lasting over a week with light usage. The speakers deliver decent stereo separation and volume too. Samsung's IR blaster enables remote control of TVs.

But at $400, pricing poses an issue. The display and performance fall far short of Google's cheaper Nexus 10. And the iPad 2 matches the Tab 3's power at a similar cost. Ultimately, Samsung fails to justify choosing this tablet over superior and less expensive alternatives.

While TouchWiz provides some differentiating features, stock Android likely better suits most buyers' needs. Samsung positions its tablet ecosystem as a key selling point. But that hardly warrants the lofty pricing.

Reviewers acknowledge merits like the microSD slot for external storage and IR television controls. Multi-window mode for split-screen app viewing would have helped as well. But its omission on the 10-inch model while present on the 8-inch one bewilders.

Overall consensus finds the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 a passable media consumption tablet. But laggy performance, a dim display, and a high price tag relative to the competition make this difficult to recommend. Given far better options now available, Samsung missed a real chance to compete.
