Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 Review

    See other variants reviews Score: 7.16

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is a good quality Android tablet device launched many years ago, provisioned with a powerful CPU ticking at 1200 MHz, a 8" multi touch screen, and 2 cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front-facing camera. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

Being just 0.29 inches thick,this device is slim and stilized. This tablet is only 8.2" long, but it still manages to hold a 8" display. This tablet is much lighter than what one would expect from a tablet this size. This device is offerred in 3 colors, gray, blue and white.

The Tab A 8.0 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 system chip, including a great performance 1.2 gigahertz processing unit with a huge 1,5 GB RAM. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 has anice 16 GB internal memory and a slot for SD memory cards, enough to store hundreds of apps without running out of space.

The Tab A 8.0 has two cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 2 MP front side camera. It is capable of shooting videos up to 1280x720 (HD). In addition, the camera counts with a couple of good characteristics: face detection shooting, auto-focus and geo tagging.

This device includes an average 1024 x 768 8" display, which makes everything look good. This display uses TFT capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The Tab A 8.0 uses a 4200 mAh incredible Li - Ion non-removable battery providing the Tab A 8.0 a marvelous battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to live shorter, while with such a big battery you will probably replace this device before that becomes a real problem.

This tablet includes Wi-Fi capability (which it can provide to other devices as a mobile hotspot). This tablet doesn't use a sim card, because it doesn't work with GSM networks.

This tablet also features a handful of interesting features as Bluetooth (4.1) and GPS, and a few sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is not very convinient considering it is offerred for $ 139, while other similar tablet devices are being sold for much less than that. No matter if you want a work tablet, need a tablet for playing games or want this portable tablet mostly for social networks and internet browsing, this tablet is probably a great choice for you.
