I had both. Both have similar performance. Both lag sometime when home button is pressed. It takes a few secs to respond. The iPad lagged a bit playing asphalt 8. The tab 3 doesn't.

If you want best performance in the 8 inch tablet have you looked at the lg G pad? I'm looking to go that route myself.

If performance is your priority, go for an Nvidia Tegra Note 7 or a Nexus 7. Both 7 inch, but perform great.

For me, the primary benefit of the Tab 3 8.0 was to get the LTE version for phone + texting usage so I can stop carrying around an old phone to tether a tablet.

well thanks for your fast reply ,, well i dont look for games i am going to use is mainly for pds books and may be surfing internet , so i guess i am not a heavy user but i do hate laggs the thing i cant stand about size i prefer 8 inch i feel its more like book in the hand and i looked for lg g pad but it was kinda expensive despite some ppl might say ipad is kinda over priced but in my country its cheaper than nexus 7 first and 2nd generation ,, lg g pad and sam tab 3 8 !!! kinda weird idk !!
