This is an ok tablet, however I think Samsung could've done better. It has good specs and is a functioning tablet but for a price like that (USD: $229.99) well, nope.
AnonD-49412, 23 May 2015beside the new 4:3 ratio design. this tablet cant even compete with 2 years old Galaxy note 8.... moreWhat discouraged me from buying Note 8 is it ugly thick bezels and the overlay ugly curves. I bought Tab A and will choose it any day over ugly Note 8.
beside the new 4:3 ratio design. this tablet cant even compete with 2 years old Galaxy note 8.0
come on... now is 2015!
AnonD-265153, 01 May 2015It's entering Malaysian market soon at the price of MYR1299 (US$361). Sorry, but Apple's iPad ... moreYa... I agree the price is not right.
Better get a Samsung Tab S, with much better in everything, just a few hundred more, just except no S Pen.
Low specs high price . Nobody will buy. Wait for 2 to 3 months and price will be little cheeper then apples and oranges ... everyone will be happy . End of story
OMG! Whew! Samsung is still playing on it's devices... I feel that the makers are insanes?.. How can they made a tablet like this worse?.. Real Bad.! . -_- ..Samsung yow, still playing on the ground.. .We can't even get track of your tablets because of simultaneous release and now the result? ..u have no other choice but to innovate/invent/make a NO CLASS tab like this.. .If u had copied the Apple products, I wish also that you will copy Apple in their Purity and Lay-outs ..That their devices were released organizely and so is made perfectly and purely, that's why more people focused on them because of their Organized Plans ..not like your Samsung Company, just so not formal.. Disgusting.!
The price just not right with the spec are given. If it a little higher tab 3 it still consider okay, but it more pricey than tab 4. Survey malaysia price
The actual price of the 8.0 is actually 229.00. It's a midrange tablet slightly lower resolution then tab 4 but same specs otherwise. It's also the only Samsung tablet that comes with actual Microsoft office. Its not there best tablet but it's far from worse. There also will be a spen variant model.
awt, 27 Apr 2015And an archaic 4:3 aspect ratio. No thanks. That aspect ratio went out with tube TVs. I'll con... more4:3 is the new thing now for tablets.. the new tab s series is rumor to habe 4:3 as well..
iPad mini 1st gen is the target this model is going after, not the iPad mini 2. Look up the specs/price on Amazon, nearly identical across the board.
To say this is an Android copycat of the iPad mini first gen is accurate.
The OS is pretty well responsive. It's no S6 but is decent. Basically on par with the 1st gen mini, yes.
What draws people to this tab is a deal run by stores like Best Buy: bring in an old functioning tablet and get $100 off one of these. Not a bad deal at that rate.

It's entering Malaysian market soon at the price of MYR1299 (US$361). Sorry, but Apple's iPad Mini 3 (price in Malaysian market : MYR1307 for Wifi model) has a lot to offer for US$2 difference, including sharper and better display, metal unibody, powerful GPU and more. Samsung really took a step forward in phones, but two step backwards in tablets.
And an archaic 4:3 aspect ratio. No thanks. That aspect ratio went out with tube TVs. I'll continue using my Tab S 10.5 with a modern aspect ratio.
Negativo, 21 Apr 2015No, thank you. Low specs, low internal memory & no pen. Looks like I´m gonna stay o... moreThat is what I am waiting for. When the Tab Note 10.2 & 12 came out why was there no 8.4????
