Tablets, tablets, everywhere! Well in a perfect world there would be. 🙂 There are many makes and models by many different brands. How do you know if you are choosing the right tablet for your needs? If you like to play games, believe it or not some tablets just may not work out. There are some games that are resource hogs. There are others that do not need much to run. The below post give one author’s viewpoint on what fits his needs.


GALAXY-Tab-3-7-inch_001_WiFiNew tablets hitting the market in 2013 need to be good for playing role playing, adventure, or strategy games, as the gaming market is a huge one now. This means that picking a single tablet from all the ones released this year as the best for gaming is no easy task, but the Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung is one device that seems to have grabbed the hearts and minds of gamers. So just what makes it such a great gaming device?

The Galaxy Tab 3 is actually one of the smaller tablets on the market, at just 8 inches (the minimum size to still be considered a tablet is 8 inches). However although this means that the screen is not as big as on some rival tablets, the 7-inch screen will be big enough for most games. Furthermore, at 1280 x 800 resolution, it offers an impressive level of image clarity and sharpness that will ensure no loss of visual impact when playing cutting edge themed slots, RPGs or adventure games, with their high quality graphics.

Another of the major bonuses of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, when it comes to gaming is that it is small and light. At just 300 grams weight, alongside the 8-inch size, this is the jackpot tablet to be able to hold comfortably in your hand when you are playing those games that demand longer playing periods or a complex role-playing game. Furthermore, it also has a processor that can offer the power and speed needed for good gaming – namely the Exynos 4212 dual-core model, developed in-house by Samsung, that offers 1.5 GHz of power. Finally, there is the matter of battery lifespan, and here again the Galaxy Tab 3 excels, with 11 hours worth of life in the 4.000-mAh battery. Together these features ensure that this tablet, which runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, may be the best gaming tablet of 2013.
