Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7″ Tablet Vs Nexus 7 2013 review

By Alan Ng - Nov 24, 2013

Tablets are one of the hottest gadgets to own over the next few months and one product that consumers will be looking to pick up on the cheap is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch. We now have a quick heads-up for those looking to get one, comparing it with the mighty Nexus 7 2013 model which many consumers argue is the best tablet on the market at the moment.

While the Galaxy Tab 3 7″ model comes with some very decent specs for a sub $199 price, we have to say that there really is no comparison to the Nexus 7 2013 if you are looking for sheer hardware performance.

You may have to pay over $200 for the Nexus 7, but for that Google are giving you the very best in performance. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch comes with a Dual-Core 1.2 Ghz processor. While this is perfectly fine for casual tablet usage such as browsing, the Nexus 7 2013 will overpower the Galaxy Tab 3 every time with a Quad-Core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

The 2nd generation 2013 Nexus 7 also comes with 2GB of RAM, compared to the 1GB of RAM stored inside the Galaxy Tab 3 7. One area of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7 that does win though against the Nexus 7 2013 is expandable storage, as Samsung includes this but the Nexus 7 2013 ships with either 16GB or 32GB of storage and that’s it.

To give you a better idea of the comparisons between these two models, we’ve included a video review below of the Nexus 7 2013 Vs the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7 side-by-side. You’ll be able to see just how good the Nexus 7 2013 really is, but obviously the Galaxy Tab 3 remains the cheaper tablet.

    I am new to using tablets and I have only 1 question, which one is more user friendly?

    I’m willing to disagree about the importance of the processor for web browsing, which is one of the areas where performance is actually most important. I have both a first and second generation Nexus 7, and while apps performance isn’t much difference, Chrome browser performance is dramatically better on the newer model.
