Only Two Processor Coress

We compared all the other 2 processor cores tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is also worth considering.

Tablets with more processor coress that might also be worth considering include the LG V500 (4 processor coress and higher rated).

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 16 gigabytes, the SM-T217 Galaxy Tab 3 has a relatively average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets that came out around the same time as the SM-T217 Galaxy Tab 3.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available including the Apple iPad ($205.02), or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD ($79.99) which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to consider the Linx 7 (32GB).

At 3 megapixels, the SM-T217 Galaxy Tab 3 has a pretty standard rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been available for a similar time to the SM-T217 Galaxy Tab 3.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 3MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 which has better reviews.

If this tablet computer rear camera resolution (numeric) is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Samsung SM-T360 Galaxy Tab Active (3.1MP) which also has a higher rating.
