I was thinking of switching up to this from my galaxy note 10.1 n8000 but when i compared the specs my current albeit older tab trumps this in many aspects, hmmm...
Been using the 8.0 16gb version for 6+ months
This phablet is good, 4000mah battery could last 1 day on gaming or doing works (only use wifi tho, turn off the mobile data) and s-pen works fine for drawing or taking note.
The 8.0 comes with 160 ppi and the same 720p, not really that good for watch movie, but still good for watching youtube and other streaming.
16gb internal memory is somewhat small since google and samsung installed built in apps that can't be uninstalled. you can expand with external mmc, but some apps and games data still saved in internal memory which is annoying
Snapdragon 410 is "just fine" for gaming, high end game may experience lag. 2gb ram is enough, even tho the system eat for about 800mb to just stay idle. Always close your inactive apps via multitask manager so it won't lag.
5mp primary camera is blurry and not fine at all, no flash either
Speaker position is weird for horizontal mode, only one side, and your hand may cover it. And speaker quality is not that good. I always use headphone for this problem
There's built in microsoft word, excel, and powerpoint, so you can use it for works, and 8.0" feels wide. No built in drawing apps, but there's a lot in playstore
Haven't experienced serious problem, but sometimes having a hard time with some aux cable. When attached, the screen may freeze or even restart the phablet, but works fine when already attached in good position.
Conclusion, if you need handy phablet with pen, samsung galaxy tab a is good enough for standard use. Multimedia is not really good since the camera, screen resolution, and speaker is not that good.
Nb : I use this phablet mainly for playing casual game, drawing, and sometimes write words document. And btw, i'm reviewing the 8.0 version. This may not apply to 9.7 version
AnonD-183089, 13 Dec 2015132 ppi only! I think it has very bad resolutionHow much ppi do you have on your notebook pc ?
i got one 8.0 ,.this is very nice tab from samsung, no hit isu, pefomence very good
pls, where do I slot my sim card in my Samsung galaxy Tab A and S Pen. thanks
mine is 8.0 .. screen quality is better than my tab 4.. i doubt the ppi indicated by gsmarena maybe its for E version..
Have used Samsung Note 8.0. This phone is awesome. That I can use this phone for 2 days without charging makes this phone a great one
Guys, I bought the 32 gb Galaxy A 9.7 (online)
My question: Is there a 32 gb version of this tablet? If there is, does it still have the S-Pen?
The resolution is very bad for someone used to iPad Air 2. I bought it for S-Pen because of my experience with Galaxy Note5 which is still the best android phone around.
Got 2 for the Kids they love them until you loose the S pen anyone know were to get a replacement pen as I still can't find any.
