    Display / Screen:

    Display is the first preference of the user and you will be disappointed with the display of new Tab 3 lite 7.0 as this tab has the lowest resolution that you have seen compared to the other Tabs by Samsung. You will be provided with 170 ppi density with 600x1024 resolution making this tablet a very low resolution tablet. This must be probably a move for cutting the cost of the device making it affordable for all.

    The 7 inch of huge LCD capacitive screen displays 16 million colors and having resolution of 600 x 1024 which is not much impressive screen if you consider the other Samsung tablet devices.

    Tablets are expected to come with a front camera, however this Samsungís new tablet lacks this feature. Instead of front camera, Samsung has provided a rear camera which is good in taking still picture with the resolution of 1600x1200 pixels. Using the 2MP camera you can also record video but the quality of video is poor as it is captured as VGA videos. Camera should have been much more advanced as 2MP camera is not much powerful and the details are not much clear with this kind of camera.

    At least 5 MP camera is expected even in a low cost device while the other devices are featuring 20MP. Videos are quite noisy and unclear; you will be able to click video at 23fps, single audio channel with 60kbps which can be said to be an average output. Interface of camera is very simple to operate and can click photos with good shutter speed. It has virtual shutter button, exposure options, effects and settings. One unique feature provided by Samsung is that you can save the picture by the name of location, which means it uses GPS to locate yourself and the file name will be saved in the name of location.


    Device can be perfect only when it has a proper battery life. Battery will not be issue in Samsungís new Tab 3 lite 7.0 as this tablet is fitted with 3600mAh battery power which is good for tablet PC. For an average user this tablet will serve you the best but for heavy user its average wherein you can browse web pages for a bit more than 8 hours.

    Standby time of this tablet is very impressive. If you test this tablet with video recording then this tablet will last for more than 8 hours 30 minutes; so watching video and playing games will not be an issue. In short we can say that battery is the strong USP for this tablet and wonít let you down or run down while using this tablet. If you use this tablet smartly then this tablet will respond well and with surprising result too.

    Software and UI:

    Samsung Tab 3 Lite is running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean which is very good as you are provided with latest Android OS. User interface which this tablet is been installed with is TouchWiz-skinned for Android 4.2.2. You are provided with good interface for calling, settings, lockscreen features, widgets and more.

    Many effects is provided in this UI, you can add ripple effect, light effect for the lock screen which is interesting and adds good feature. Lock screen has multiple panes containing different widgets like Google now, yahoo, music player and messaging etc; you can download apps from Play store and add it in widgets.


    Tablet launched by Samsung fine and budget friendly possessing all the features which are essential. Itís packed with good processor, RAM capabilities with respect to the price for which it is offered. Camera is not very impressive, so if you donít prefer photography much then itís a decent tab for you. Screen resolution should have been better as competitors of the Samsung is providing with good features in same cost.

    If we consider the chipset of new Samsung Tab 3 lite then you will observe that chipset is feeble, it should have been Samsungís Exynos or some other chipset. No front facing camera leads to difficulty in video calling. Overall, an average tablet for low budget customers.
