Christmas Gift for myself
I bought this tablet as a gift for myself. Was able to do so online.....which allowed me to compare features, sizes, and prices.....with other similar items. After I completed my online purchase I received a text that I could pick it up at the store. Too easy. I love it. It's bigger than my smartphone and smaller than my laptop....just perfect to tuck into a pocket or bag. Comes loaded with Microsoft Office. Already my favorite gift this year!
Better than expected!
I shopped and compared and had analysis paralysis.. it really depends on your needs and WANTS! At the price offered, this 2 year old technology is just fine for me. The resolution is very good, yes there is better, there is faster, there are more storage....so what? Price vs. WANTS vs needs? This tablet is excellent! I use a Samsung phone & TV, this product is a quality piece of equipment. I'd buy it again.
Nice Product. Performs well.
The Tab a iS a great little tablet. Fast, easy to use, and great clarity. The transaction made at the Oswego Illinois store was stellar. Unlike some stores who make you wait for online purchases in long line with layaway people this store has its own dedicate area for online purchases. Quick and easy!
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Tablet 16GB
I treated myself with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A , I absolutely love it! It's easy to hold and operate. I take with me everywhere to conduct business. I definitely recommend this item.
Upgraded from tab 2
I love this tablet. It is great because of the Android 5 and can take up to 128 gigabyte micro SD card. Works fast and has Microsoft office apps.
I ordered online and picked it up the very next day. Everything about this tablet is what I wanted and order
Great memory and user friendly
This tablet is very user-friendly and easy to customize. The memory capability is fantastic and comes with the option to upload pictures to Cloud, furthering it's memory even more. Sound quality and resolution are very good. It works really well for live-chatting on messenger. Super easy to navigate through the menus. Mine has a glass-top screen, which is really durable and easy to clean when I smudge it playing games. The screen is big enough that you could easily watch movies, but not so huge that it's uncomfortable to use for navigation in the car. Very good product. Would definitely recommend if you like Samsung products.
I have a galaxy so. Also, I have been using a galaxy tab with 8gb, but I was running out of space. When I found this tablet I knew it was the right one-samsung and android. The price was the best and included so many features.
Some Good, Some Bad...
This is a good tablet for an introduction to tablet use, and it does provide some conveniences over a desktop or laptop. The screen is easy to read even when you have the brightness set at a reduced level. The Wi-Fi only Internet access is not a big issue for me. It's not big enough that I'm going to buy a mobile hotspot unit to use with the tablet. Now, the bad. And this first one was a shock, there is no LED flash - not even for the rear facing camera. The screen resolution (1024 x 768) is acceptable, unless you enlarge the pictures much - then it's a disappointment. Some of the videos I played were a little jumpy; on a couple videos the screen "fuzzed-over" through most of the video. These played fine on my S6 & PC. There is a slot for a 128GB memory card, but don't run out and buy a big card. I'm using a 32GB card I had in an old S4. None of the apps I've download use the card as a default storage location. I haven't found a way to set the tablet (upgraded to Android 6.0.1) to use the card as default storage. So plan on doing a lot of moving files around if you download much. The battery life seems to be good (only had it 2 weeks), unfortunately you can't use a wireless charging pad with this tablet. The screen protectors I've found are pricey, they run $35-$50; an Otterbox case is around $60. I'm using a $15 Lifeworks Folio Case, unfortunately there's no screen protection when it's open in use. Recommend to a friend? Yes, if you want to experiment, to see if you could really benefit by having a tablet. But if you already know you need a tablet, I'd look for something else.
what I think of t this & Samsung
So far, not impressed!!! I've not had much time using this Galaxy Tab. I hate how you literally have to give control of the tab for an app, and then everyone after that! I think that it's ridiculous to have to give up our privacy to have a tabl,phone or just about any electronic devices.
Nice tablet, Walmart.com makes it easy to shop
Great Brand New
Perfect condition. Arrived well on Time
Got it for $25 cheaper than amazon. Great product
My husband loves this tablet. He especially likes all the features it comes with.
Great Features on this Pad
I've just received this as a Gift!! I have yet to do anything other than set it up for use! I'll know more about it later after having used it for the things I wanted it!
Samsung pictures and videos are superior.
I used to use another Brand of device for years but the quality of the photos were amazing. After comparing this and the other brand I new Samsung won in my opinion. I used it for vacation pictures but found out I liked this better overall.
This product has great features
. I'm still learning about the features. I use mostly for reading and emai but will enjoy the other features as I learn how to use them. Price was reasonable and I really like the size (8"). I think it's a great tablet.
Very nice tablet, my second Samsung. It does everything to my satisfaction. My only complaint is that the case is smooth and can easily slip out of my hand. I bought a case for it.
Best Tab ever!
I like how the security would help prevent access to personal information; Also how the Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-A-8-Tablet-16GB has its locating device on for when its been missed placed, it will be easier to find
This tablet is lightweight and perfect for reading and playing games on vacation, which is why we purchased originally. We do use it at home for the same purposes because of its mobility. We have taken photos and videos and they are nice also. Will probably use more features in the future, but have just had it week.
