Difference between Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and Samsung Galaxy Note II

Key Difference: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 sports a 7-inch WSVGA TFT touchscreen and has the dimensions 188 x 111.1 x 9.9 mm, making the device thinner compared to the former tablet. The tablet is actually targeted for the low-end range. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is a smartphone manufactured by Samsung and is an Android based device. The Note II is known for its large display of 5.5 inches (141 mm), as well as its integral use of a stylus, called the S pen. The beauty of a Galaxy Note II is that it falls between the categories of a smartphone and a tablet. It is hence marketed as a ‘phablet’, a phone and a tablet, a hybrid or sorts.

Samsung announced the addition of a brand new 7-inch device to its tablet line-up. The device, dubbed Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is the successor to the Galaxy Tab 2. If users were waiting on another high-end tablet from the makers of Galaxy S4, well it will be a huge disappointment. The tablet is actually targeted for the low-end range. The device does come with some upgrades compared to the Tab 2; but in terms of hardware, the device still lags behind the other mid-to-high range tablets.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 sports a 7-inch WSVGA TFT touchscreen and has the dimensions 188 x 111.1 x 9.9 mm, making the device thinner compared to the former tablet. The screen has approximately 169 ppi density, giving it a decent resolution, but not the best available in the market. The company has styled the tablet after the S4 and the Galaxy Note, making it sleeker and more comfortable to hold. The device will be available in two models: Wi-Fi only and one with SIM support. The SIM model only support 2G and 3G functions. The Wi-Fi model will be available in the market as early as May 2013, while the GSM model will hit the markets in June.

The company has announced that the tablet will have a dual-core processor that will clock around 1.2 GHz and 1 GB RAM, which makes the device better in terms of speed compared to the Tab 2. The device will come with the company’s TouchWiz UX UI that was launched on the Galaxy S3 and will sport Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The device offers ample amount of storage with 8/16 GB internal storage capacity, which can be boosted by 64 GB using a microSD card. One feature that might help increase sales of the device is the USB-capability, which is lacking feature in many tablets.

Galaxy Tab 3 will house a 3.15 MP autofocus rear camera and a 1.3 MP front camera for video calls. The cameras are not state-of-the art but they are decent enough for taking photos and video conferencing. The device does offer features such as geo-tagging and an LED flash. The device is powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery. Samsung has also integrated the phone with Google services, including Google Now. The device may not be for the users that are allowing for full-functional high-end tablet, but this is the perfect tablet for families that require a low-end tablet for internet browsing and gaming.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is a smartphone manufactured by Samsung and is an Android based device. The Note II is known for its large display of 5.5 inches (141 mm), as well as its integral use of a stylus, called the S pen. The beauty of a Galaxy Note II is that it falls between the categories of a smartphone and a tablet. It is hence marketed as a ‘phablet’, a phone and a tablet, a hybrid or sorts.
