This is basically a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 with Android 4.2, and speaking of the Tab 3 7.0, it's still running Android 4.1.
Samsung should've update the Tab 3 7.0 to at least 4.2 instead of making the same tablet with new Android version. What a waste.

It is 2014 and they still use 800x480 res in phones. What's your point?

PPI my friend. Anything below 200 ppi is harsh for such mobile device.

Its basically a galaxy tab 2 7'' from 2012........ Samsung is pretty great in this kind of stuff!!

This is useless, the tab 3 7'' is already affordable enough, why make another variation?

This is Samsung saying: "Look at how much money we can waste and how much more we will earn!"

I still have my Galaxy Tab 2, and despite the improvements in quality and performance, I don't feel a need to get the Tab 3. I definitely won't feel a need to get this tablet, especially if it's no real improvement from what I already have. The Kindle Fire HD, going as low as $139, beats it on almost every level, though lack of microSD expansion and front-facing camera may be a turn-off.
