The Bottom Line The Galaxy Tab is a beautiful product with features that will make iPad owners envious, but its in-between size and possible carrier commitments hold it back from broad appeal. It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet. The improved S Pen goes a long way to making this high-end tablet worth the extra cost, but if you're not sold on the stylus, it's easy to find a better deal. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
