    Solid tablet

    I've had it about 2 weeks now, and its it's definitely a solid upgrade from my 2013 LG Gpad. Battery life is plenty good. Gets me through 2 full days of pretty heavy use before I charge up around 40%. Things are plenty quick to load like videos and web browsing. Screen gets crazy bright. My house stays pretty dark, I haven't needed to turn it up past maybe 20% much. Charges quickly. Runs smoothly with minimal bugs. Bluetooth work good. Love the headphone jack. Built in speakers sound surprisingly great. The problem is that it is a brand new device, with brand new software android 9.0 and Samsung 1.0 ONE UI so while it is quite smooth and sharp, I feel it could be better and it maybe will get better after a few updates. There is some lag and stutter here and there. And a lot of apps are not fully supporting this tablet yet, it even warns you before downloading apps from the Play Store. The only problem I've come across with that is things sometimes look blown up and pixelized to try and fit the large screen. Other than that no serious problems operation wise. Mostly cosmetic stuff that, again, should get fixed with updates over time. Over all it's a pretty flawless working tablet so far. Hopefully Samsung sends some updates it's way to round things out. I'm sure they will.

    Screen isn't very responsive

    Movies play well and Wifi is steady and stable. If you are purchasing a tablet to play games this tablet leaves much to be desired. Netflix plays well if you can get the touchscreen to work so you can pick a movie. I use a tablet for a little bit of everything. Considering the price is higher due to the brand name, I would expect Samsung to make a descent product but alas no. I have had to swipe seven or eight times to make a match on a game. I had to exit out of Magic Puzzles completely due to the crappy touchscreen that would not work and I could not move two puzzle pieces that were stuck in the middle. I lay the tablet on a tablet and the touchscreen still did not move the puzzle pieces. Don't even get me started on the auto rotate. Even when I take it off auto rotate it keeps switching between portrait and landscape. I was trying to play spider solitaire and due to the stupid tablet constantly switching when it was NOT on auto rotate, I was getting lightheaded from trying to move the tablet so the I could see the cards in the direction it switched to. I turned the auto rotate on and waited a minute and turned it off but it still kept rotating. Evidently the first few tablets were made pretty descent and I got stuck with a junky one. Best Buy is to cheap to use an actual box that can be opened and reused. So if I was to send back the tablet I ordered online, I would have to tape up the pieces of cardboard that I had to rip open to get the tablet out. Talk about ruining the environment. It is to bad the screen can't be reset somehow. I tried shutting the tablet down completely and restarting it to no avail.

    I bought this to replace a Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. This is a huge upgrade from that tablet, and it does almost everything great. I wish they would offer this tablet in an 8" package, I like the 10.1 but it is just a little bit large and heavy, not really conducive to one handed use. I also wish it had the ability to wake up when opening a case, not a huge deal, but I was surprised it doesn't have that feature. It didn't specifically state it did in the specs and I wouldn't have made a different purchase had I known, I would still buy and recommend this tablet. The battery lasts quite a while. I use mine mostly for reading and watching videos, for that it works great. The screen is very clear and the speakers sound ok, though they don't get very loud. If there is no background noise the speakers will be just fine, I use bluetooth headphones so it doesn't matter. At the time of purchase, there weren't any in store options for cases or screen protectors, I purchased some very cheap glass protectors and a cheap case from Amazon, they both worked great, there just weren't many options at all. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.

    I'm usually an iPad person, but when I needed to tune my car (2014 BMW F30) I bought this and an OTG cable plus the K+DCAN cable and got to work! Set up was easy as the tablet was pretty much ready to go right out of the box. Its sleek design made for easy use while inside the vehicle. The 32gb on board memory isn't quite enough but I bought a 128gb micro SD and it worked perfectly. Wifi capabilities are flawless. With the octa-core processor this tablet has been able to run emulators without a hitch. The most recent being a PSP emulator that I was able to hook up my Xbox One controller and the mappings worked out perfect! If you are looking for a versatile tablet that will keep up with your busy life look no further, for $200 you can't go wrong!

    My wife has the Galaxy Tab A with Spen SM-P580 (2016), And I find this tablet to be about the same , I played an HD 4k video on it and even though the tablet is not able to truly play at that level it was still very good and barely any tearing was seen . The sound is a bit lower than my wife's but that is fine for me as I use bluetooth headphones most times when watching video or playing music.and I suspect I should get great mileage with this one also, as my wife's is over 2 years old now. I have had other tablets die in that time .. highly recommended.. for adults not children..

    What great tablet. If you're looking for a great display and aspect ratio perfect for most hi quality movies and videos this is it. Way cheaper than most tablets with similar specs but doesn't feel or look cheap. Great for reading comics and pdfs as well as gaming can play pubg with no lag in hi quality settings love this tablet only complaint I have is I wish there were more accessories for it.

    I have had my Galaxy Tab a t 595 for about two months now it is a fantastic tablet it can do practically everything it's great for listening to audiobooks and you're able to read ebooks so easily. I love the sound quality the location of the speakers is perfect. I use tablet stands to hold my gadgets so I never worry about not hearing well while watching movies and music videos. I take great pictures. I love that I can use my sd cards on this tablet without a problem. wireless keyboards work well on this tablet.

    I purchased this to replace my iPad, which had gone through a pretty rough time. The primary reason I chose Samsung is price and the Android operating system. It works, and it doesn't require me to constantly upgrade as the Apple iOS seem to. It is a little thicker, but robust as I've dropped it a few times and no problems no cracked screens nothing similar to what happened with my iPad. Overall a goodbye and I would recommend it to those looking for a mid grade tablet.

    I went to BB one night fully prepared to pay the premium for the Samsung Tab 5e's better screen, and within 30 seconds asked the associate for the new Tab A - even though the 5e was on sale and the Tab A was not. The screen is an overachiever at this price point. Battery life has been good, but not great. Haven't pushed it with heavy apps and I don't use my tablet for gaming, but it handles everything I expect a tablet to handle with ease.

    Decent tablet but go for 128gb model

    The 32gb has 2gb of RAM and the 128gb has 3gb. The operating system takes over a gig so if you have a few apps open at once they will start to reset themselves and most of the apps nowadays are memory hogs that take at least 150 megabytes. Android will also start closing apps way before you hit the limit.

    This unit replaced my 5 yr old 10" TabS that took an unfortunate dive. The screen size is the same as the TabS but the TabA is smaller and lighter. Love the screen display on the TabA great contrast and resolution for games, video and surfing. The increased memory is a big plus for me. I was constantly moving apps to Flash and with the TabA I don't have any memory moving issues.

    Bought this for my mom since her old Samsung tablet died. The icons look different than her old tablet and they are annoyingly tiny. We had to teach her again which one is for Gallery, Youtube, FB Messenger, etc. It's faster than her old one 'though and the camera works in video mode in FB Messenger even with her slower internet connection.

    Everything about my new Samsung Tablet works great, but, for me the major drawback is no flash for the camera. My last Samsung had the flash built-in and it made taking interior photos a breeze. With this tablet I have to have a light attachment. Just additional piece of equipment I have to carry.

    Screen was unresponsive and very hard to unlock the screen at times. YouTube lag when scrolling up and down and even on Twitter and on the internet. The tablet did have a great screen with vivid graphics. And it was light and thin to hold or carry around. I recommend to buy the tab s5e it has better specs and no lag at all.

    I was looking to upgrade my Tab2. I first purchased the Tab4 but returned it. I didn't really need such a high end tablet since I mainly use my tablet for basic use; email, shopping apps and internet. Samsung again has put out a quality product at a great price.

    Bought it for my Daughter since Her kindle fire 10.1 just kept having technical issues. She loves it. I played around with it too and love it myself. My only complaint is that it has too many pop up ads for this or for that. But other than that, its a Nice Tab.

    This tablet is great. I was looking for a tablet at a reasonable price and decided to give the Samsung Tab A a try. The battery life is great and I haven't had any issues with it yet. I really like that you can upgrade the internal storage as well.

    Great tablet for the price, it's the 2019 model and has been just outstanding, it's like using a giant phone very easy to use. I had purchased a apple 10 .1 tablet and returned it after 12 hours too hard to navigate compared to galaxy.
