I got my Tab A 8.0 LTE with an S Pen a few days ago, and so far I am enjoying it. The 160ppi irks me a bit as it is quite noticeable, I have a phone with 297ppi and there is a big difference. Even if there was an available 9.7" version (there wasn't one) I would still have opted for the 8.0" because of the even more pronounced pixelation. Still I find the screen as something I'll get used to. Otherwise, screen is good with good colors and viewing angles. The S Pen is something good to have. Performance is good, 2GB of RAM is good enough for multitasking, games run fine, and the UI is smooth. As for battery life, I got 8 hours of screen on time until it hit 15%. Both the front and rear camera are good enough for a 2MP and 5MP camera respectively. A good tablet, the ppi is intolerable for some but is good nonetheless. If you have a better budget, I suggest getting the better Tab S2 but for those who doesn't, this will do you guys just fine.
Bmarie, 03 Oct 2015How is it different from Note 8?The Note 6 is not even made yet
I got the 8.0 with s pen this week. i gotta say its a pretty decent tablet despite its screen resolution. if youre coming from a high end screen like 1080p, yes , you may able to differentiate it but you will adapt to you after time and its not that bad. i say just use for casual consumption. i chose 8 inch cause the size is compact . i feel 9.7 is too big.
for the s pen , i dont see myself using it much cause i have a note 3. its basically the same thing but its a good thing to have. the expandable storage is good. i torrent all my movies.
my only small downfall is the speaker placement. when you hold it in horizontally , you right hand can easily cover it and you will notice it immediately. i dont know why Samsung place it there and if you are laying on bed , if you place the tab vertically on your body , the speaker can be covered.

The windows app store is full of cheap copies that don't always work like their android counterparts. Windows has its advantages but they are so few that I don't think I'll try another windows phone soon. Android rules because its better and more refined. Microsoft needs to refine windows a lot more before it can compete seriously. I suppose that's why Nokia ditched them. And is now developing an android phone
Windows is the best OS , its million times better than android . Windows phone doesnt lag or hang as software is optimised and due to which the battery life is also way better than android . And even windows has thousands of apps and games which are very useful . Android has such poor ram management and due to which after few months the phone memory gets full which is never happens with Windows .

I got my Tab A 8.0 with S pen last weekend. I was blown away with great enhancement that they did for this tablet especially with the s pen functionality. I also got a Note 8 and loved it.
Better brightness, battery life, thinner, lighter, bigger screen thanks to slimmer bezzle

in the philippines we have here with sim card i dont know how nice it is. i dont know if the battery stay longger than note 8.0
Just bought the 9.7 model and has been using it for a week now. I bought it because i need a bigger tablet (i was using tab 7.7) and has S pen function. At first i was a bit disappoint with the pixel density as i was used to the tab7.7 AMOLED screen but after using it is actually just nice for its intended role as document viewer. The bundled microsoft apps (word, excel etc) is also nice but seems to take some time to get it started but there are a lot of other similar app in the google store. The S pen is superb; i guess it justify the price. I don't know why the spec here stated no sim but mine has micro sim slot. My advise if you don't need the S pen look for other model
1- Microsoft office is not compatible with this tablet
2- reading for 3 minute and your eye will get hurt and you will feel it
3- No i'be under stood the British proverb I'm not rich to buy cheap things
4- I threw it into trash , I can't hurt someone else's eye just for being boor
5- I hope some one from USA to seriously file a case into the court against Samsung just for this tablet, because it is not safe for eyes to read from it, and because it is over priced targeting poor people, over priced product must target only the rich not the poor, this table is a deception
With low ~132 ppi pixel density, this tablet is over priced by 200 dollars, and it is not a budgetary tablet as poor people, who suffer to earn dollars for their kids, may think
Let's give a name for low end tablets with low ppi
Let's call such tablets: PPI or PPI TABLET ;)
