The Bottom Line It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is a sleekly designed tablet but, with more powerful and cheaper options available, it feels like more of the same, rather than an upgrade. With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer.
