I am surprised there is not more discussion on the Tab 3 8.0. I could not be happier. My prior tablets were Nook Color rooted, Galaxy Tab 1 10.1 and Nexus 7 16gb. I really liked my N7 until it got laggy as the memory started to fill. I ordered the Tab 3 8.0 in large part for the expandable memory (I have a 64gb sd card installed), and also for the larger screen. What I got was much more. The battery life is quite good, screen display quality is excellent, there is no lagginess and apps seem to run smoothly and start up quickly, bluetooth connects to my BT speakers, no fatal errors, reboots or other misbehavior. Size, weight and thinness are small enough to make the tablet conveniently portable. I wasn't sure about speed with dual processors, but that does not seem to be a problem. I use mine for email, calendar, ebook reading, online forums, downloading photos from my camera for blogging and editing, music streaming, movies etc. and it meets or exceeds my expectations. All in all a very good tablet. I hope sales are strong and this is a winner for Samsung.
