Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Hands On: My Likes and Dislikes

I have been wondering why Samsung made an 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 if there’s already a Galaxy Note 8 with better specs. Anyway, the device is one of the three new line of Tabs launched recently. The one available now on retail is the 3G version which has an SRP of P18,990.
