I have Tab A it was in marshmallow but I am using in Lolipop 5.0.2.It's work fine though.
I read almost all the posts above, and I am writing this review after my first one year use of this tablet. Externally as a whole this tablet is good for reading, Web searching, making notes, lectures, playing light games. The only thing I felt was bad for this tablet was that it was packed with a tft display with a very low pixel density. I used to play heavy games like NFS No limits with a small delay while moving throw menu. Battery in this tablet stands pretty good, I was able to get almost 4 to 5 days of charge in simply keeping it as a alarm device. Some oneven in the above command said that we cannot plug otg in, but I tried and I am now using a 32gb SanDisk cruiser glide 3.0 Pendrive with this tablet. Camera is good at day light buy losses clarity significantly during low lighting. Over all this is the only tablet that we can get for such a low price(excluding the tablet from xiomie and other Chinese company).
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2017Does it use OTG?This is 2015 model review. Yes my 2015 Tab A does use USB On The Go cable for write / read of USB memory drives.
This tab has a good ram and storage. This tab is good for gaming and use microsoft word,excel,powerpoint. Good device to use.
I bought this tablet just a few days ago. All other features are good except the 4200MAH battery which drains really fast. If you are looking for a tablet with good battery at this price range, this is not the best choice.
stop telling people what to do, mr self important. he was simply sharing the fact it is a slow cpu, and not designed for gaming.
stop complaining about games and graphics they are cheap tabs for those who cannot afford high end tabs or for people e.g old people who might check Facebook, daily news,play cards and chess. watch movies if that's all its hundred percent perfect. if u want heavy gaming , great pictures, great graphics go for the Tab S series. you buy a tab depending on what u need it for light usage I recommend this over high end tabs cause u save money.
The auto brightness senser does not working correctly inn dark. No problem in bright place.
Crappy 1024x768 screen looks terrible, and really bad CPU for games, I get really low FPS on anything slightly demanding
I love the Samsung Galaxy Tab A, its screen is very vibrant and bright, although it is not an AMOLED. Had to get screen fixed once, dropped from about 2 feet of bed, shattered screen. Otherwise great device and would recommend to and young or old people.
Mark , 21 Oct 2016Does this tablet has screen mirroring Yes screen mirroring with miracast works fine.
The galaxy tab A 8.0 is so grate device for me because the design and durable because my devices how many times to fall but my device has no damage and I update to android marshmallows more beautiful especially the design of the app i love it
