    Ultimate Storage

    I love watching movies and this tablet allows me to store allot of movies on a 512 GB Mini SD card. I can carry it around the house paired to my Bose noise canceling headphones, I can cook or tinker with something while not bothering anyone else. I have a high quality case with built in stand, and a temper glass screen protector. The Open box price was a gift from above! Making this very affordable. Adding at least a full year of protection was a "No-Brainer". I gave my 2016 Tab a 10.1 to my wife in a new case with a 256 GB SD mini, she loves it! So she was not at all upset with me for buying this one. Down time on a lay-over between flights is easier with this. The blue tooth and WiFi work great. I do think some of the games and video streaming apps need to be updated to the newer standard of the newer operating systems. Especially the Vudu and Amazon Prime video Apps.

    When updates 2 applications from different companies alot of the times developers always changes the application software so they don't work for the Samsung Galaxy Tablet can't be updated to the new version. I would like the developers take in consideration when making these updates consider how much they mess it up for tablets and phones!

    Solid tablet for the money

    I purchased this tablet to replace a kindle Fire HD 10 and caught a sale for $279 for the 128GB/3GB Ram model. In addition, it comes with a free keyboard case. However, I have not received the case yet as it is on backorder (Ships on Aug 28). I considered the Tab 5e but with the sale price and the free keyboard case, I went with the Tab A. Overall, I'm very happy with the tablet. The screen is vibrant and apps load quickly. I was able to use a USB-C hub to connect ethernet and a mouse and keyboard and it works quite well in that mode so I'm looking forward to the keyboard case. WIFI and Bluetooth work great. Netflix, Disney+, Xfinity Stream, and YouTube all run great. With all the storage (128GB), plus the fact you can add an SD card for additional space, allows you to save content locally (Netflix, Disney+) to watch later when you don't have access to WIFI. Tablet is thin and light and the sound is surprisingly good. I use IHeart radio frequently during my work day. The tablet ships with Android 9 but I've read it is scheduled to get the upgrade to Android 10. It does have a headphone jack which I do use often and sound is great. Battery life is good. I don't have specific numbers but a full charge generally gets me through the day with moderate to heavy use. I really don't use the cameras on my tablets so I really can't rate them. I did fire up a Google Duo session with a family member and things looked and sounded fine. Now for the negatives: The speakers are on the bottom so they are both on the same side when you put the tablet in landscape mode to watch videos. Even with this disadvantage, they are still much louder than the speakers on the Kindle Fire HD. Missing sensor. Most tablets have a sensor when you close or open a case, the tablet will turn off or on. Unfortunately, this is missing on this tablet. So, before you close your case, you should turn it off. However, you can set the table to turn off after 30 seconds of inactivity. In addition, you can double tap the screen to wake it up. There is no fingerprint scanner or facial recognition so you'll need to set up a password, pattern, or pin to unlock the device or use smart device. Charging is slow with the charger that is supplied with the tablet but if you have a better charging brick, you can speed things up a bit. For the price, this tablet is a great purchase. I would recommend this to a friend or family member.

    This one replaced my 16gig tab-A from 5 years ago.

    About five years ago I purchased a Samsung Galaxy tab A 16gig from Best Buy. It was used daily, throughout the day for the entire time. Used for entertainment, research, paying bills, Etc. It has been an awesome tablet. I would still be using it right now had it not been getting very near it's maximum storage capacity. I purchased this 128 gig Galaxy Tab A without having a second thought. I've had it for about a month and it also is proving to be a decent tablet. I would certainly recommend buying this tablet. Yes, I have owned an iPad in the past. It wasn't bad but certainly was not better than a Samsung Android tablet.....NOTE.....There is one thing I would like to see Android adopt on its phones and tablets and it's an apple feature. When you place and hold your finger in an area to precisely place the cursor to insert text into a line, etc, the Android highlights text and gives you the option the copy, paste. While that is useful at times, more often I am just trying to simply precisely place the cursor. Apple products have a magnifying glass appear that actually brings the text closer and larger for more precise movements of the cursor. I have seen it pop up randomly on this Galaxy tablet, but I seem to not know the trick to make it appear when I need it. Additionally, It can be irritating at times when you are trying to precisely place the cursor and the Android system keeps popping in possible replacement words thinking you want to change a word versus just simply place the cursor in a particular spot. You then have to touch somewhere else on the screen within the writing for the suggestions to disappear from the screen allowing you to get back to what you were trying to do from the start. (Precisely place the cursor). Anyway, for what it's worth, there's my two cents.

    Very nice tablet!

    I initially bought this tablet for myself but ultimately gave it to my husband and decided to get myself an iPad Air tablet thinking I could do more with that tablet instead. I was very shocked to learn he could actually do more than I could on this tablet than I could on a tablet 5 times the cost of this one. First it has more options and free apps through its App Store so he right there can do more with just that. He can add his own music and transfer files to and from it easily where I have to sync to a special program every time to back it up or add certain things and most of my music has to be purchased or imported into an app to be transferred to my tablet. It’s a lot of work where he has his done long before me. Then he can also change up more features of the actual tablet too where I am limited to what came on the tablet or what I can buy from the App Store unless I “jailbreak” it which is a big no no. This tablet has an amazing battery life and the vibrant colors and display pixels when watching movies etc are outstanding! Crisp, clear, and radiates colors you didn’t even realize were possible. Again better than my new tablet. In addition when he watches something on this tablet it uses the entire screen width and length but my iPad Air cuts off the top and bottom reducing the amount of screen which is a huge bummer when I bought the size I did to have a bigger screen when watching movies. Even with the big screen size it has this tablet is still very lightweight and compact so it’s easy for him to take to work every day. (Even with a case on it.) Another bonus is that it has an expandable memory (again something mine does not have) and this allows for him to store data on a memory card further giving him way more memory in total than I have (and has to pay a lot more extra for.) This truly is such a fantastic tablet! I plan on purchasing 2 more as gifts for my kids too. So if you are looking for a great quality tablet that won’t break the bank I highly recommend this tablet! It has more bells and whistles than the extremely pricy tablets. It definitely outshines my expensive one and I should have totally kept this for myself but lesson learned I know what tablet I will be getting myself in the future.

    Love this tablet. i can do so much on it and it has great storage capacity plus expandable storage. only reason i bought a new tablet (that i hate) is because my kiddo broke the screen on this one and it was going to be $250 just to replace the screen. might buy this again soon

    This is actually one of the best Tablet Samsung has made, but it is a hit of miss. The first tablet I got, the display was perfect, the sound was amazing, but it had an issue with the WIFI, it would drop the connection while other devices connected to the same network would continue to work fine. The second tablet I got, the WIFI issue was minimal, the display had a red bais tint, and the speakers sounded really bad. Conclusion, this devices seems to suffer from quality assurance issues, if you are lucky to get a good one you will love it, but if you don't get a perfect one, try again, the next one might be better, or see if you can live with the defect from the first one because the second one might be worse. I wish I had kept the first one I got because it had a perfect color calibrated display and the speakers sounded amazing, it would drop WIFI connection often, but when it stayed connected, the experience was magical.

    I looked at reviews of this tablet all over social media and genuinely I don't think they give it enough positivity. This tablet is absolutely amazing whilst many of you may feel it's not good enough for fast pace shooters etc it still handles everything else great. I have no issues with this product. The best thing about it is how well it streams and for entertainment purposes. Big thumbs up to Samsung on this one! Feels premium Looks premium Responds fast/ handles daily tasks with ease Only thing that I would say is it would be nicer to have a bit longer battery life. If anyone was thinking about this tablet I would say go for it, its an amazing tablet at a great price and whilst it'll be 2years old at the end of this year its still up to date and handles most task u throw at its way.
