    IMHO. That physical button on the tablet is not well positioned!

    Parang hustle naman kung aabutin mo pa sa middle bottom yung mga button para lang maaccess yung home, back and menu key. I think many of the buyers who will avail the tablet will resort to rooring their phone and will flash custom roms that will feature a virtual navigation keys or if there’s any that its stock rom will support virtual navigation keys will just enable to maximize faster navigation.

    For all of you Samsung Fanboys, Im not trolling the product. Mind you, I think that specs are decent. I just dont like that physical keys on that tablet. :D

    the physical buttons on the 8″ tab looks good imho kinda iPad mini-like, am considering of getting one for my mom when it comes to local stores, but on the 10″ tab it looks really ridiculous, it would have been better siguro if it was located sa side rather than sa ibaba or they should have stick with the virtual navi.

    I think you got the specs.. mixed up…


    so it’s either the verge is correct or Samsung is the mixing up the specs.

  6. thedude says:

    Okay, presyo nalang pag uusapan. Specwise eh this should be very affordable.

    Cause honestly nakakatawa naman ang specs na ito, specially coming from a 2nd gen like I am.

    Antay nalang ako sa mga bagong Nexus tablets.

    is the gt 3 8.0 really a dual core exynos?..nakita ko sa ibang site ea Intel Atom Z2560 ung processor..which is which?…sana below 20k lng ung price

  8. richard says:

    sadly, Samsung Philippines is not selling the Tab 3 8.0 in the Philippines. It could be coz they want to push for the Note 8.0 instead. The Tab 3 7.0 has the same 3mp camera. still the old banana.

    What’s most noble about this tablet is being an arm-based tablet, actually running in Intel Atom processor. Compared to its predecessor, this is both thinner, wider and the designer, indeed, did a really good job in minimizing the entire size. The character set design and the Galaxy Tab itself looks like the Galaxy S3 just because of the place of the home button. It’s still made from plastic which is, of course, more prone to smudging even some scratches are not caused.
