Guys Question. Does this device support gaming? like Mobile Legends? Any idea? Thank you
Bought the SM-P585 (Tab A 2016 10" with S-Pen) at $270 us last week, here is my initial impressions:
Â• I previously had a Tab S2 8.0, which I have since sold it. Reason being, I found myself using it lesser and lesser, when I have gotten a rather 5.7" phone.
Â• The S Pen is rather niffy, as I'm using it for everything, from navigating the menu, to scribble, sketching.
Â• Screen is gorgeous for its size
Â• I read a lot of PDFs on the go, the 16:10 ratio did not bother me much
Â• As the screen is bigger, I need not zoom in that much anymore. (PDF magazines)
Â• The dictionary function on the S-Pen is very impressive (when you hover the s-pen over a word, google translate pops up)
Â• There is a slot for the S-Pen, which is extremely handy. Previously I was considering the Tab S3 or iPad Pro (but both did not have slots for the pens, and are much more expensive)
Â• With a 128gig SD card in, all my media is housed there. This includes all the non crucial apps which Im able to place into the SD card (some apps dont allow you to do so)
Â• Speed is decent for me (3gig ram), my True PDFs renders the text pretty fast when zoomed in (but my Tab S2 performed better in this regard)
Â• Knowing the P585 has a restrictive 10 gig of space available, I went forward anyway, all because of the S Pen's capabilities.
Â• I have to be extremely choosy of what to install, resulting in me installing only the apps I need, not what I want. This can be tiring as time comes by
Â• I totally forgo on space sucking games, using the Tab A as a pure ebook, social media, video machine
Â• Certain space heavy apps are unable to be uninstalled (Word at 251mb, Maps at 140mb, Excel at 131mb, Drive at 102mb, OneDrive at 101mb), this can be an annoyance to some as not all of us needs certain apps at all, and these are unable to move to SD
Overall, I'm still happy to own this device. :)
Please check Android version information. I have a T580 (wifi only, no s-pen), no sign of Nougat update (I've just checked manually for udpates).
Samsung have deliberately taken up internal storage with system processes to limit storage capacity to 10gb encouraging people to upgrade.
MicroSD cannot be formatted as internal memory and many (particularly google based) apps have to be on internal memory. As a result it takes very little to fill device storage.
I've always been a samsung fan, but this is the last time I get one of their devices.

Pls , I need the s pen version of the Samsung galaxy A 10.1 .
The one with 3gb ram and 32 ROM
Considering this tablet for a while now cause my laptop is bulky and my desk is quite small. I think its a good tablet but my question is can I do wired printing with this tablet. I only have a cheap non-wifi printer. So I need to know is it possible to print documents if i could find a way to connect my printer to the tablet.

However, there is a mod for YouTube which is called OG YouTube which lets you listen to music while you are offline.

It was ok at the beginning but later it went to so slow. Especially, when Samsung updated Android version, the device became a rubish as useless... But when I bought, it was a quite reliable and good device.

Can anyone tell me if this device still runs good like on release day? I heard that samsung devices tend to slow down over months of usage.
