Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) Tablet Review

 

Desirable. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) is a compelling package. No other other 10-inch tablet with Android 6, LTE and Full-HD on the market offers more for less. If the performance is up to par as well is the subject of our review.

sturdy design ; bright Full-HD display ; LTE ; 5 GHz WLAN ; Android 6 ; microSD slot with App2SD ; games run stutter-free ; long battery life

only 10.5 GB available storage ; weak cameras ; throttling under maximum load ; speaker only on one side ; battery is not swappable

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) is more powerful than the predecessor Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7. The display now features a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (16:10) instead of 1024 x 768 pixels (4:3), although the screen is only marginally larger...
