I just bought this tablet, and it's pretty good! Though I did have to customize the settings a bit, to boost performance. It's really slow out of the box, but if you uninstall some of the bloatware and change minor developer settings, it uses up a little less power. Unfortunately, the Samsung UI takes up the most of the RAM and there isn't much to change that.
This tablet needs to be on always. If not, when on once in a while the whole tablet will lag like crazy due to the receiving notifications. Even updating apps took long. The touchscreen will lag too!
Jay, 10 Sep 2021Does anyone know if it has an IR Blaster? Can't find a definite answer anywhere.No IR blaster....
recently bought this 2nd-hand from a office friend last year 2021. It's slow (hence the SD429 proc and I got the 2gb version), its heavy/bulky (not for holding a long time)...i bought this tab not for heavy using or gaming, just good 'ol browsing, reading, watching videos. The stereo speakers are surprisingly loud tho~
As long as you don't go overboard ...it's a fine piece of machinery.
This is a great budget device for playing retro and lightweight games using emulator

Although I have one concern. My image file sizes are so big. Sometimes they get up to 8mb per photo, even though the camera size is only 8MP. I'm genuinely confused.
The only good thing about this device is the stereo speaker. It's not really good for online classes and meetings since there is only 2gb worth of ram, and half of it is consumed by the device system. The camera's only good outside. Now a new version of tab a 8 has been released a few months sgo, this T295 is not worth it in 2022.

Or maybe due to the big screen, you might accidentally double tapped the screen causing it to turn off.
I love this tab I have it since 2021 and it is very good but something very strange just happened to me. I was using the tab normally and suddenly the screen went black and then it went to the lock screen. Is it normal for this to happen? should i buy another tab?
I used this tablet since 2020, It's specs are very low but it's enough to play games like minecraft, temple run and more, It's Also recommended for online classes, but the mic doesn't work sometimes, However the Camera is not clear, If samsung made the specs from 2 to 4GB RAM, Increase storage, Make the camera little more clear, And make charging speeds faster, It would make a GREAT tab.
