In this article, we’re comparing two Samsung tablets with the same screen size – 10.1. The Galaxy Note 10.1 hit the market in 2014, one year after the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 was released and it surely eclipses the older model. You can see for yourself.
Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
Samsung equipped the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 with a TFT LCD display which supports a resolution of 1,280x800pixels, so don’t have high expectations from it. But it will satisfy your needs and that’s all that matters. The tablet weights 520grams, being over 60grams lighter than its predecessor.
This device has a friendly design, so don’t worry about your palms, because the tablet’s edges aren’t sharp and they won’t bother you in any way. The device fits comfortably in your small hands. And you’ll like the faux-chrome edges that surround the screen.
The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 runs on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS and you’ll have a primary screen which contains your favorite applications and widgets, while the other two screens can be used the way you want to.
The tablet is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 Dual-core processor, clocked at 1.6GHz, with PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU. It’s not extremely fast, but it’s pretty well.
The battery has the capacity of 6,800mAh, which lasts 9hours in standby mode.
