Thinking about buying a tablet. Can't decide between the tab 2 7.0 or tab 3 7.0? Any suggestions and why? Besides the hardly faster processor and smaller size of the tab 3, I really don't see much difference. Any help?

The main difference apart from size is the slightly faster processor in the Galaxy Tab 3 as opposed to the 2. In benchmarking tests, this has shown a major difference in framerates and graphics. If graphics is important to you, go with the 3. If it isn't, go with the 2. Oh, also - the 3 has a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera whereas the previous model does not.

Hope this helps!

I just Purchased the 8.0 Tab 3 and to say I only see one flaw, but I'm not sure if its a deal-breaker for me or not. Its the Screen, for the Price a 1280x800 res screen just seems a little cheap to me. I love everything else about it. I guess looking at a Retina Ipad fora year spoiled me. Going to hold on to it for a few more days to see if I can find more stuff I love about it that outweighs the Screen Issue. But if The Screen wouldn't be a huge deal for you then I think the Tab 3 is the way to go.
