Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is a relatively affordable Android tablet with decent specs, but you can get more bang for your buck if you don't need access to Google Play.

Solid performance. Good build quality. Access to Google Play store.

Underwhelming cameras. A bit pricey for what you get.

At $200, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 is nicely built, but a little pricey for what you get. Its compact size and long battery life make it a good option for media consumption or basic productivity tasks on the go, especially if you want access to Google...

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 review: The price is right

 

The simple 8-inch tablet provides a satisfying Android experience and packs tons of premium app extras.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is affordably priced and offers many premium app perks for free. Its microSD slot accommodates cards up to 128GB.

The plastic construction feels cheap, and the single speaker provides weak audio. The text often appears pixelated.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is a simple tablet worth picking up for its low price, and its valuable extras sweeten the deal even more.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 review

 

The price is right for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0. Starting at $229, the 8-inch model is the first Samsung budget tablet to boast a price as modest as its specs. (UK availability has yet to be announced, but the US price converts to around £230.)

It's time to jump start the 8" screen size market again. Anyhow, let's get started with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 review.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good tablet

 

I would recommend this as an inexpensive tablet for anyone.

It was easy to set up and use, fairly good resolution and pretty fast.This is my 2nd tablet I bought it mainly for the apps available from google play and it does what I want it to do.

I wish there was a way to put more on the memory card instead of just photos and videos. ie:applications.
