Default Looking for an upgrade, what would you recommend

I currently have this tablet and it's been working good so far but I'm planning to upgrade soon. I was taken back by how many tablets samsung has out now and don't know which is a suitable upgrade to go for. I can spend around the range of $300. I mainly use it to stream stuff as well as school related use. Any insights will be greatly appreciated? Thanks!

Default TAB 3

If you are looking for a new TAB pass the TAB 3 it seems that its not a big upgrade and not much faster then the TAB 2.

Cheers

I agree with that..

Tab 3 is rubbish.. A friend has the 2 and it seems sluggish when compared to the 2 and there's no GPU either... Battery seems to last only half the time compared with the 2..

Stay clear as the only advantages are mini usb and slightly lighter
Primary devices:-
HTC Desire s rooted with DS ICE rom
HTC ONE V rooted, Ignorance V5 rom
ZTE Blade 2 with custom rom
Samsung Galaxy Ace 2,Stock
Nokia Lumia 520 dev unlocked,WMP8.1
HTC TYTN 2 6.5 shifu V4.3 WWE ROM
1 x Samsung Tab 2 7"Stock modded rom
1 x Advent Vega,Vega Bean
Secondary:-
Way to many but include,
68 Psions,Palms,WinMo's,Android

thanks Qosmio and Lohtse, I will certainly stay away from that one.

How is the battery life on your note 8 crash613, in terms of streaming?

I don't really do a lot of streaming but I will watch 4 to 5 hours of video and still have more than 50% . I have not really paid much attention to it because it has never been an issue

I don't know what you want to spend on it but take a look at the Xperia tablets or the Nexus ones.
If you really want a Samsung again, take a look at the new Pro series.
