    Would give it a 5 star if the Home button and the ones on either side of it would light up. Very hard to use when it is low light

    Very Disappointing for Travel

    The device DOESN'T find/connect to all Wifi networks when travelling internationally. Purchased this device specifically as a compact and light device for travel but found it very frustrating when arriving to certain places with free wifi and this device wouldn't find the network (while my samsung phone did). It seems that it is specifically configured for a purely american market and so cannot see Wifi networks using channels 12 and 13 (allowed outside the US).

    I would expect a newly bought item to have current software. Not very convenient to hold while using. Recent and back buttons aren't light or elevated, making them hard to use.

    Bought this for a disabled friend who is not real computer savvy and wanted something that was small, light and had the amount of power needed to assist him with the tasks he needed to accomplish. When I first powered up and got it set up one line (very easy), I was amazed at the speed of the processor, ease of operation and overall functionalities. For a low price tablet, this is one powerful tool for someone looking for a good tablet at a fair price

    Excellent device - snappy response, good google OS, clear screen. Only downside is the back button and cascade view buttons don't light up. You have to guess which one is which in the dark. Otherwise, very nice and well built.

    Got this for my wife. Didn't realize some of the touch buttons at the bottom don't light up. Also had to reboot/ reset it because no notifications were coming thru. Now it's working fine and the wife likes it.

    Good Picture and good sound. Tablet is responsive and fast. Satisfied with thespecs, screen, and size. Only complaint is controls for back and all open apps does not light up next to the home button.

    Okay, but previous Tab A was better

    My old Tab A was no longer working too well so I figured it was time to replace it. Don't get me wrong there are some good features with this one. I prefer the USB-C over the micro USB, and 32gb instead of 16 is a plus. This new version is narrower which I don't like because I had to buy a different case and several sites render differently on the narrower screen. It also doesn't have an ambient light detector, so the app I had to automatically adjust screen brightness can't do that. Trying to insert a micro SD card is more difficult because it requires you to use the little tool provided in the box or a small paper clip to push into the hole until you feel the "spring" that allows the cover to pop up ever so slightly. I'm not going to recommend it, mostly to get people to read this review, and see the shortcomings of this new Tab A so they won't be surprised.

    Bought the SM-T380NZSEXAR (Tab A 2017 version) back in May. After more than six months of use I can say I'm very happy with the tablet. I use it mostly for checking news/social media, checking maps, making reservations, and watching videos when traveling, and for selecting videos to cast to my TV via Chromecast when I'm at home. Tablet is responsive, has good battery life, good app compatibility, and charges quickly. As a bonus, I just received an update to Android 8.1 and "Samsung Experience version 9.5" and the update allowed changing the irksome (to me) over/under display of time on the lock screen to the more conventional "xx:xx" format. Some nits: the case is slippery. It'd be good if it had some texture. The Running Apps and Back buttons don't light up, nor are they easy to see except in the right light. Not a big deal if you use the tablet much because you get used to just knowing about where they are relative to the home button but it would still be nice if they were more readily visible. Tidbit: The USB C charging connector and associated charger work great. But USB C is still not as nearly widespread as micro USB. So I recommend folks consider getting some micro-USB to C adapters (very cheap on certain online auction sites) or an extra USB C cable to keep in their bag in case you need to 'borrow' someone's charger when on the road.

    This is Tab A 2017 tablet. I bought it. It was sale before Christmas. Thank you Best Buy. I tried to use it for a while. It is great and small 8" tablet. It is 5000 mAh! It is a great battery. Sorry, I decided to take it back! This tablet do not have ... - No vibrate. - No led light on bottom and between a button...there are two (flat) buttons. "Recent apps button" and "Back button". No show lights. If you do not care about vibrate and/or light "recent apps" button and "back" button. This tablet is great for you.
