    Samsung Tab 3 8.0 vs Nexus 7 2nd Gen-screenshot_2014-02-09-16-07-58.png

    Better fps on the N7? Maybe sometimes but it has TONS more pixels to push. Let me try to attach something for you. 3DMark does tell a different story tho...N7 is good there.

    Ah. This is my Tab 3 7.0 LTE. 50% better battery life?

    I'm looking to get my first tablet and debating between these two. I like the 8" display and am less concerned about the worse specs on the tab since this will primarily be for media consumption as opposed to gaming. However, the one thing I do like about the N7 is the multiple users. This will be shared between me and my wife. While we don't need our own accounts etc. it would be nice for us each to have easy access to our gmail, books etc. I'm guessing the N7 is taylor-made for that but I was wondering how the tab performs in that respect?

    Also, if we wanted to double this as a stereo to play music in our baby's room is one better than the other? Obviously high fidelity sound is not important just something functionally audible through the speakers...

    Thanks,

    I have a nexus 7 and I think it's pretty good but I get annoyed at all the love the tech sites give the nexus devices, and this year the HTC One. They seem to want to slag off Samsung at every opportunity, but there is a reason why Samsung are outselling all the other OEM's right now, it's because they make the best devices. Nexus devices don't even sell that much anyway.

    My 7.0 LTE has multi user support, and includes silly things like face login. For baby room music you do not need to be picky as long as it's not hurting your ears...maybe the SD card extra storage space matters. Hint: the N7 is only tailor-made to impress on paper with high rez (low contrast primitive tech) screen and a fast quad core (that only works right if you root and replace the sluggish software core). Other than that it lacks piles of basic features. The ultra rez on a small screen just makes web sites harder to read, and makes the system work harder by needing to zoom and rescale everything as you browse. Video battery life is good, tho.

    ffejjj: entertainingly the Mega has had a slightly higher satisfaction than the S4 on Sprint's web site. Goes to show raw power is not the same as a well-matched whole. And the One Mini is not equivalent to the S4 mini...which I am thinking to buy as companion to my Tab.

    Edit: I just re watched the video. N7 really appears to have poor color and dark contrast, over compensated by making brights *too* bright. It also seems on average less responsive to touch and slower to load web pages and the youtube app. It does not look faster and does not look like a premium device in the video. The fact of such similar size and weight, and equal or worse battery life in most cases. Not impressive.

    I too was recently in the market for a new tablet, my Samsung 7.7 was starting to get a little long in the tooth speed wise. I looked at the Samsung Tab 8 only to find that it used the same exact CPU as my 7.7, now my tablet is already 3 years old, hence me wanting to upgrade. So Samsung is using a 3 year old Exynos CPU in there supposedly new model. Yea, I'm looking to upgrade not downgrade, thank you very much. So after a little more looking I decided to use my employee discount with Dell and get their Venue 8, I would have liked a higher resolution screen as 1280 x 800 is a little low for 2014 but it was alright everywhere else, Intel CPU Z5280, the Tab 3 10.1 has the Z5260 version so this is even faster, 2GB vs the 1.5 GB in the Tab 3 8, 16GB vs. 32GB, it doesn't have Miracast but MHL works just fine, price was 200.00, normally it would have costed 200.00 and it came with a Dell folio case and stylus. So for the same price as the Tab 8 you get a much faster machine which is almost twice as fast, more RAM, a lot more storage, Gorilla Glass, and better build quality. I'm sure the people in this thread like their Tab 8's but I couldn't in good conscious buy a machine that is already obsolete before even openeing the box.

    You're quoting a lot of things that a 6 month newer tablet should have.. But, EVERY Tablet has it's weaknesses.. IMO, x86 is a weakness.. if you are just going to have a stock device.. then I guess you are ok for $200.00.. But developer support basically Does Not and Will Not Exist for x86.. and there are still apps and devices that don't work with x86 chipsets (six axis comes to mind..) IMO you could have spent $25.00 more and got a LG G-Pad 8.3 with a 1920 x 1200 res screen, Quad-Core Snapdragon 600 CPu / Adreno 320 GPu 2Gb's of Ram and SD-Card support.. and have Multiple ROM's & Kernels to choose from.. But to each his own. :-)
