    Hi guys, I recently got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and I seem to be having some trouble with it. Whenever I try to go into a app/game after a few seconds on the app it would just close. Anyone know what the problem is ? Thanks

    I am having the same problem, it doesn't happen immediately, nor does it happen every time, but it is an annoyance.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    I was having the same problem with mine, especially when I hold the tablet vertically. I think it is just a matter of watching how you hold it. Since I have made an effort to keep my fingers away from the back button the problem has stopped.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the Intel processor, maybe not compatible?

    I am having the same problem. It is sporadic and I notice I get kicked out of my games but not every time. I wondered if it had something to do with the recent update

    My facebook and other app keep unexpectedly closing especially when I post or share. Does anyone know whats happening? They'll freeze up and say the app isn't responding or quit working.

    Yes my son was complaining about that the other day. I paid a lot of money for this tablet and very upset with its performance. My cheap Walmart straight talk phones I have had worked better than the tab 3 10.1. Wish there was something that I could do to make it work better for him. You daughter has the note 8 that works perfectly, both my nook hds work great as does my s3 and tab pro 8.4 lte.
    Heck my tab 7.0 plus still works better than the tab 3 10.1.

    I have issues with Facebook closing unexpectedly . Enough that it makes it impossible to use. Do you think rooting it and removing apps would help?

    Mine is the same. Ever since google updated their software and started using KitKat 4.4.2 version. Can't use facebook app at all. Samsung say its a google problem so they suggested to do a factory reset which I did and it didn't help. They then advise to take it into someone who will wipe all the software then add it again. $92NZD to do this with no guarantee it will work. I'm hoping the next update fixes the bug. Meanwhile I'm using the internet instead ;0)

    Glad I could help but pretty stink that you can't use an app that's designed for the Tab especially one as big as Facebook!
