Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
- Dolan 11
Not that bad (Not recommending it in 2022 ofc)
It is still good for browsing the internet (Using Brave Browser 1.0.77, the only one that doesn't lag on it) and using Facebook Lite. Some low end games also work on it without issues. The great thing about it is that you can control your TV with it (Tested some apps, only AnyMote 4.6.9 seems to be working) The battery is great. I've had a problem with it, it was randomly discharging but after i opened the tablet, unplugged and plugged the battery connector it started working as normal (I think that was common issue with old Samsung tablets) The biggest downside is the screen which is has great colours and viewing angles but is super unresponsive making games like Geometry Dash unplayable because of the touch delay but that doesnt bother me too much in normal usage. You can't use YouTube Vanced on it anymore sadly but there's still NewPipe which uhh.. works. Android 4.4 with "LagWiz" is pretty damn lightweight compared to nowaday's android 11/12 based OneUi. Some apps don't work as intended because there is no Google WebView in android 4 and many apps which don't have their own webview can't display web content anymore. There are also some weird artifacts/screen glitches in the Play Store which suprisingly still works but really likes to stop working randomly. Tried installing some custom ROMs on this tablet but every of them was unbelievably laggy so i came back to stock one.

This tablet and iphone 4s amaze being 10 to 12 years they do their jobs though the recent adjustments have rendered them helpless now.I still enjoy how they display despite being really slow. Because of them some new phones even seem less impressive old technology
