Starting July 7, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch, Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch, and the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch will be available for purchase online or via many of the nation's largest retailers...

I've used both generations of Galaxy Tabs and even own the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. They're horrid, laggy garbage, and with these specs, doesn't look like much is going to change unless they make some changes to TW.

I must agree. I had a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and it was laggy garbage. Wouldn't have bought it even if it was $200 from the way it lagged and couldn't keep more than 3 tabs in a browser open without everything freezing up.

Samsung has solid smartphone technology. Aside from the Nexus 10 and Galaxy Note 8.0 though, the rest of their tablets are trash...

I agree with you on the tablet side. The Nexus 7 and 10 are the closest thing that Android has in terms of fluidity compared to the iPads. Phonewise, however, HTC's Sense 5 UI on my DNA or the One is almost flawless. I have almost zero lag, and I can't say that I didn't have lag on my iPhone 5 if I really pushed it, which is what I have to do with the One or DNA to get it to lag. And to my DNA's credit, it is a custom ROM I have flashed and not an official build. Android isn't there yet, but it is getting there. I have a feeling that the next major iteration of Android will fix a lot of fluidity issues.

Android leads tablet marketshare since May 2013th. Lags are known for 4.2 versions, using custom roms may fix these

Yes, the older Galaxy Tabs and the Note 10.1 were pretty bad. Even the Xperia Tablet Z performs kind of unacceptable in my opinion. The Nexus 10 runs awesome though and the Note 8.0 pretty well. If the Tab 3 8.0 is just a thinner Note 8 without the pen, then it will be a great choice at 299.99.

Personally I will either go Nexus 7 2.0 or Ativ Q or Book 9 plus. I know the latter two are not really tablets but close enough. Haha
