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.)

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

 

In Australia, the Tab A starts at AU$299 for Wi-Fi only or AU$449 for the LTE version. If you want the S Pen accessory, you'll be spending AU$349 for Wi-Fi -- there's no S Pen plus LTE option for the 8.0.

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.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab A 8.0

 

This is a great tablet, it's easy to use and just the right size to fit in my purse. I can stream movies, play games or do some work at home.

So far I haven't found any cons.
