When it comes to the design, the Galaxy Tab 3 211 is a tad different from its  8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 311 sibling. It is a little thicker and the screen occupies less space on the device. Added to that the back is little plasticky.

Surprisingly, it still retains some charm. The device has a 1.3-megapixel camera and a speaker on top.

The form factor though is a little bit the same, the MicroSIM and MicroSD slot is located on one side while the volume rocker and power button  is on the other side. The top has a 3.5-mm audio jack and the bottom is occupied with a couple of speakers along with the USB/charging port

Indoor Shot

The camera on the Galaxy Tab 3 211, performs average at the best. The 3-megapixel camera, works okay. There is no LED flash on board so indoor shots are a bit crappy.The outdoor shots aren’t too great too.

Along with that, the camera UI is the same one as the flagship handsets such as the Galaxy S4.


The tablet can play MP3, AAC, AMR, FLAC, MID, WMA, WAV and Vorbis audio formats and MPEG4, H.263, H.264, VC-1, DivX, and VP8 viddeo formats.


The tablet performs well on most counts. Our only trouble with it is that the tablet takes time to switch on. There were little lags but nothing worth mentioning.

There are some apps on board, although nothing out of the box. The tablet is endowed with modes  such as driving and blocking mode.

It offers Wi-Fi, 3G and voice calling which is great.

The battery backup from the 4000 mAh battery is pretty good.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 211 is a nice option on the market at a price of Rs. 17,499. The performance is great. The camera is okay and the form factor is okay.

If you are in the market for an affordable tab, do give it a look.
