My Quest for the Ultimate Android Tablet “Supertool”

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop for an Android tablet has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. Regardless, all opinions are my own and are awesome.

I’m the kind of guy that likes to be always connected to all the latest technology. If I could somehow connect myself to the Internet, Matrix-style, I would. So when I started researching which tablet would be the the best tablet for my lifestyle, I knew I was looking for a tablet that is fast, has access to tons of apps, and that can handle everything I’ll be throwing at it. It quickly became clear that an Android tablet would be a good fit.

After a little more research, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 caught my eye. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has a fast Intel processor. Check. It can run all Android apps. Check. It allows me to blog, play games, take photos and video, and even acts as a universal remote. Check, check, check, and check.

Armed with my new-found knowledge, I headed to Best Buy to try out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for myself.

Once I arrived at Best Buy, finding the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 was pretty easy. My local Best Buy has an entire section devoted to Samsung tablets, clearly marked with lit signs. And as soon as I picked up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, a helpful Best Buy employee, named Shayne, offered me assistance.

At Best Buy, Shayne explained the benefits of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to me.

Since Shayne is one of the resident experts on all things Samsung, I asked him a few questions about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, and about Android tablets in general. Our conversation went something like this…

Tim: I’m looking for a tablet that will be a supertool. What should I be looking for, spec-wise?

Shayne: You’re going to want to take into account several specs, including processor speed, screen size, and battery life.

Tim: Well, I need a tablet I can use for blogging, gaming, communication, and multimedia. Would the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 be a good fit?

Shayne: Definitely. It was built with all of those in mind.

Tim: What are the benefits of choosing a tablet that uses the Android operating system?

Shayne: Probably the biggest benefit is the access to all the Android apps. Not only is the library of Android apps huge, but a lot of them are free, including several that you would have to pay for, on other operating systems.

Before leaving Best Buy with my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, I tested out some of the apps.

After chatting a little longer with Shayne, I only had one question left:

Tim: Can I take one home, today?

Shayne: Absolutely. Which color would you prefer?

I found the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 easy to use and incredibly responsive.

And just like that, I’m at home, enjoying my shiny new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. As a matter of fact, I’m writing this post from it, right now.

But we both know you’re waiting for me to answer the most important question of all: can I play Candy Crush on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3? Here’s your answer:

All work and no play…

Now, if you’ll excuse me, this candy isn’t going to crush itself.
