galaxy tab 3 8.0 price issue
« on: October 06, 2013, 11:50:24 pm »
Guys I got myself a galaxy tab 3 8.0 which is a complete beauty but it cost me 75k , when I looked up the prices online it was as low as 300 USD. Can someone tell me the reason for this MASSIVE price difference?  Was it a complete waste to go for this tab?

Are you aware about the one with no support for GSM voice communication, SMS, and MMS this is pretty cheap. I guess this made the impact for price difference.

Wifi Only (No SIM): Model SM-T310
2G/3G Support: Model SM-T311
4G LTE Support: Model SM-T315

I believe above information is correct!

I guess obviously it would be expensive if you buy in the Samsung Store.

Price depends on warranty offered as well. (# of years)

Maybe the Tab 3 is new to Sri Lanka the prices are still high.
I got Samsung Note 8.0 you could have gone for this, in contrast still got better specs.

I bought it for 67.5k (2Yrs) from SKY TELECOM SERVICES (PVT) LTD, Bambalapitiya
Now market price around 64k

I know places you can even buy for 55k with no warranty

Anyway now that you have made your purchase I suggest don't underestimate yourself. You could have searched more in the first place.
