4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, 10 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch - (White, Wi-Fi) (Personal Computers)
Looking to buy a tablet for over a year now, but was looking at the Ipad. Persuaded to look at the Tab 3 10.1" and decided to go for it as it has a slot for a micro-sd card.
Seet up easy enough and screen resolution and processor speed good enough.
Put a load of files (books, music, films and magazines onto a memory card and found it easy enough to access - appears to play every format I threw at it which is better than Ipad or Kindle (though .mobi format books bought from other retailers needs to have the kindle app downloaded and importing the books into it.
Can zoom in and move around screen easily so can now read magazines (not easy to do on Kindle I have).
Bought a Galaxy to female USB connection so can also plug in a pen drive (anything larger is too power hungry to work).
Limited number of good free games apps available compared to apple store only thing letting it down.

Overall a very happy buy as I can now ditch the ipod & kindle on holiday, use skype to talk to family, see what's happening in the news take photo's with my Nikon camera, remove card and put in tablet and upload to facebook using hotel wi-fi so a great buy overall.

Wife now decided she wants one so must be good

I also have been looking on and off for over a year now. I have always read that Skype does not work with the 10" but does with the 8", have we moved on since I last checked and Skype now works on the 10"?
I want to use the pad mainly for photo handling, Skype, and as a navigator, the latter because it has a larger screen than the dedicated navigator screens.

Just got this myself but trying to decide whether to open box or just return it to Amazon for refund as I'm concerned that Skype will not work. Even the Skype support pages are less than clear on this. Can anyone confirm if it actually works on thr Tab 3 10.1 ? Thanks :)

My mother bought this tablet and I can confirm it is a very accomplished Skype-compatible tablet.
