Our Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Review is now published - click here to read it.

Interface and functionality

TouchWiz Nature UX is what is gracing the tablet, with a number of familiar widgets and an eight-icon dock at your disposal.. The Mini Apps suite for Samsung's tablets, that allows you hovering the browser or calculator in a window on top of everything else, for example, is nowhere to be seen, though it might still be included with the finalized software.

Processor and memory

Of course, the big story about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch is that Android here is powered by an Intel x86 processor, not the usual ARM clone. It is a 1.6 GHz dual-core Atom with the CloverTrail architecture and PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU, aided by 1 GB of RAM.

Since the odd thing with the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is the Intel processor, we ran Quadrant on the tablet, despite its non-final nature, and the results were pretty middle-of-the-road.

The tablet comes with either 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, and features a microSD for expansion.


Internet and connectivity

The typical TouchWiz browser is what you find as stock on the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, and it renders pages fast, without hiccups. It also allows for Adobe Flash content to be loaded when needed.

The TouchWiz browser


There is a microSIM slot for some versions of the tablet with cellular connectivity, like our prototype, which support LTE/HSPA+ download speeds. Of course, we get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS as well as the infrared beamer, and that's about it, as far as connectivity goes, with an MHL port taking care of the wires.
