    New Nexus easily, the resolution on the Tab 3 is pitiful compared to the Nexus 7 2013.

      True true, but one thing that miffs me about the Nexus series is that the digitizer is in the glass, not the screen. so if you crack any part of the glass, it will stop responding to touch in that area. AFAIK the Samsung series are not designed this way. It will still function even if the screen is cracked.

  • Wish there's a note 3 deal…. I need a $785 receipt to price match :P

    Nexus is 7" and this is 8". I can really tell the different of that 1 extra inch. Galaxy Tag 3 7" is $219 at Bing Lee ($208.02 OW price match) which is much cheaper than Nexus 7 gen 2.

    If I want 7" I'd go for refurbished 1st gen Nexus 7. For 8" there only ~$70 different to Note 8 which IMO much better, hard for me to choose…

    • If you hold the 7" a bit closer, it is bigger than the 8".
      Its not a fixed viewing distance like your TV might be.

      Only if you need reading glasses, but don't wear them, does the low-res 8"have the advantage.
      (That's my reason for wanting a bigger screen :)

  • nexus 7 is not too expensive on kogan, spec is much higher, will recommend nexus 7

  • OW at Glebe and Lewisham, NSW have already dropped in-store price to $266

    • Yes, and I went and bought the Samsung tab. Almost same specs except for the quad core and lower ram and screen res haha. Nexus looked too small and could find any cases for it. Thanks guys
