Plenty of people want to buy a cheap tablet for Facebook, Internet and other regular apps but at the same time they want a product that is of good quality. Samsung realized the market’s potential and launched the cheapest tablet out this year: the 7 inch Samsung Tab 3 Lite T 110 – the low-budget sister of Tab 3 T210 .
It is a product that rises up to Samsung’s quality standards and at the same time has a lower price meant to rival the other cheap tablets on the market released by other developers.
Samsung Tab 3 Lite T110 is a 7 inch tablet similar in design to it’s sister Tab T210. The texture of the back part of the tablet is similar to leather just like the texture used on Note 3. It is thicker than the other Samsung tablets thus giving it the feel of a somewhat cheaper product.
The display is brighter, the contrast is satisfactory and the touchscreen is fairly responsive aided by the Touch Wiz interface.
The screen’s performance is decreased in certain angles where the luminosity is lower or reflects light. It is very probable that these shortcomings are amplified in out-door use . The screen’s resolution is 1024 x 600 which is normal for 7 inch tablets.
Specifications and performance
We are not talking about a top of the line product, but rather about a regular tablet to be used for Internet, Facebook, document editing and simple games such as Angry Birds. Samsung Tab 3 Lite has a Dual-Core CPU of 1.2 GHz supported by 1 GB RAM memory.
We have the GPS module incorporated in this Android tablet and the Wi-Fi connection is quite stable as it uses a quality antenna/ aerial. We also have Bluetooth on the Tab 3 Lite a feature which is lacking in other rival tablets.
A memory card is required to store media files as the 8 GB internal memory isn’t enough because it also supports the Android 4.2 operating system which takes up about 2 GB .
The web camera is 2 megapixels and it isn’t very useful for taking good photos but the biggest disadvantage to it is that there isn’t a frontal web camera, which means you need to say goodbye to Skype conversations and other video call apps – I asked myself also : A tablet without front camera ?? Why Samsung ?
The autonomy of this tablet is 8 hours maximum having a 3600 mAH battery capacity. As not all of us use a tablet this autonomy is relative, we played games on it and tried all its features and after 5 hours we had to plug in the charger.
The segment that Samsung Tab 3 Lite took on is a low-cost one, but it is also a highly disputed one where there is a close battle between the cheap models from ASUS, Lenovo or Acer.
But it is Samsung we’re talking about so even if there are a couple of shortcomings this tablet respects the quality standards of the manufacturer that we have become accustomed to. The price of this buget tablet varies around 150-160 dollars a very competitive price for an Android Samsung tablet with GPS and Bluetooth incorporated.
