Operating system:

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 and 10.1 both runs the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. Galaxy Tab 7.0 is still lagging behind with the older Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. Hence, this round goes to Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1.

Display and Screen resolution:

The Tab 3 series of tablets only vary in the screen sizes i.e. 7 inch, 8 inch and 10.1 inch respectively. All three of them have the same display i.e. TFT capacitive touchscreen. Talking about screen resolution, the Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1 have the same resolution of 1280×800 pixels while the Tab 3 7.0 has a screen resolution of 600x1024pixels. Thus, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 continues its losing streak.

Processor:

All the three tablets are powered by Dual core processors with varying speed. The Tab 3 7.0 sports a 1.2GHz Dual core processor while the Tab 3 8.0 features a 1.5GHz Dual core processor. And the winning tablet i.e. Tab 3 10.1 is powered by a 1.6GHz Dual core processor.

Camera:

The Tab series is a bit disappointing when it comes to housing a decent camera. Only the Tab 3 8.0 has a comparatively better primary camera of 5MP and secondary camera of 1.3MP. The Tab 3 7.0 and Tab 3 10.1 houses a rather lower quality camera of 3.15MP and front camera of 1.3MP which is same as the Tab 3 8.0.

RAM and Storage:

The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 wins this round again by housing a 1.5GB of RAM. The other two tablets have only 1GB of RAM. Regarding internal storage the tablets come in different variations depending on the Storage capacity and all of them can be expanded upto 64GB using microSD slot.

Battery:

Tablets are supposed to house powerful batteries and Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 supports this statement by housing a 6800mAh battery which is huge! The Tab 3 8.0 is powered by a 4450mAh battery while the Tab 3 7.0 is powered by 4000mAh battery.

Price:

The prices of these devices are yet to be announced but we will update our article as soon as we hear the price of these tablets.

Verdict:
Keeping in mind all the specs and features of the tablets, we would like to crown the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 as the best among the three. This tablet has a decent processor and highest RAM and picture quality. Although the prices have not been announced, we believe the Tab 3 8.0 is better of the three and worth buying.
