Review Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch »
Samsung refined its tablet lineup with the Galaxy Tab 3 lines. The 7-inch version, however, is facing some tough challenges.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch is perhaps the most elegantly designed 7-inch Android tablet to date. It is smaller, lighter, and very easy to behold, with both hand and eyes. Samsung definitely refined the 7-inch tab to a new level.

But on the specifications end, nothing really is overtly impressive. In fact, at $199 price tag, its specs are sub-par. The new ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7, for example, is priced at $149 and carries superior digits on almost all hardware specs.

Most Samsung fans seem unfazed. In the competitive hardware market, some corners must be cut in order to be able to price a similar product 25% cheaper, many believe.

The 7-inch tablet market is ever-so-crowded. Almost all Android tablet makers have a 7-inch product, and they are all priced lower than Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch. The 8-inch version, therefore is a brilliant product, and its look and feel are more akin to the grossly successful and class-leading Galaxy S4 smartphone.

In the meanwhile, Samsung needs to do some serious tinkering with its future 7-inch tablets, if they plan to remain relevant in the most competitive tablet segment.
