Samsung Galaxy Tab 3: 10 Features That Make the Tablet Worth Buying

5. The dual-core processor should be enough

According to Samsung, the Galaxy Tab 3 will ship with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. That’s not exactly the most advanced chip the company can bundle in the device, considering many products are shipping with quad-core processors, but for simple tasks and running apps, it’ll definitely get the job done.

6. Samsung Apps and Samsung Hub are huge

Samsung has been able to build a massive brand behind its Apps and Hub services. The company’s Samsung Apps is essentially its answer to the App Store. And Samsung Hub provides access to all kinds of services and entertainment. For current Samsung owners having access to those services makes it easy to get everything up and running.

7. Mobile networking is available

Samsung made the smart decision to bundle mobile networking with the Galaxy Tab 3. However, instead of 4G LTE service, the tablet will come with 3G networking. Once again, that’s not ideal, but Samsung is going after the lower-end of the market that will be just fine with the slightly slower speeds of 3G.

8. Ample storage for a small device

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 will ship with up to 16GB of onboard storage–a large amount for a lower-end device. To make things a bit better, Samsung will also provide up to 64GB of storage through its SD card. That should be enough for most casual users.

9. USB connections are everything

One of the biggest omissions from Apple’s iPad and iPad Mini is the lack of a built-in USB port. That severely limits what people can and cannot do with the device. The Galaxy Tab 3, though, comes with a USB port, making it a far better solution for those who want to plug external devices into it. USB is a key reason many people opt for Android tablets over iPads.

10. Google integration

The Galaxy Tab 3 comes with several Google services built-in, including Search, Gmail, Google+, YouTube and Google Maps. The tablet will even ship with Google Now. Considering so many people are running Google services and Apple has decided to remove them all from its own mobile devices, that could be a huge selling point for the Galaxy Tab 3.
