Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 WiFi only version is the cheapest among the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 family at ₱9,490 only. That’s just a little more than half the price of the first Samsung Galaxy Tab to hit the Philippines back in 2010.

Of course, that’s the WiFi only version and doesn’t have a sim slot. If you want the version with the 3G sim slot, you’ll have to spend ₱14,990. That’s a single micro sim tablet capable of connecting to the 3G networks of SMART, GLOBE and SUN.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Display and Camera

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 TFT DisplayThe 7.0 inch screen of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a TFT panel only with a 600 x 1024 resolution. This one disappointed me since an IPS display would have made viewing movies with friends using this tablet a better experience.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0’s camera are a disappointment too at 3.15 MP for the back and VGA for the front. Tablets usually have lower camera resolutions but even Starmobile managed to offer a tablet with 8 MP camera.
