samsung galaxy tab a 8 wi-fi 16gb tablet is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2367.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High end software in budget hardware. This tablet is quite amazing! the size is great for one or two hand use or as a laptop with a Bluetooth keyboard. what it lacks in hardware (camera, display, CPU, Etc.) it makes up in its features like dual screen multi tasking and other cool features that where only available on the very best (and very expensive) Tablets. the batter life is actually quite good with its power saving features and I for one prefer the 720p display even though some text is a little pixelated. apps run smooth, pays the best games, and the micro SD slot is great. Highly recommend as a tablet for work, study or for even reading the news its cheap but runs like the very best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great product at this price point This tablet has many great features for the price. Included is limited function Microsoft office software which meets my needs. It's hard to really complain about this tablet considering what you are getting at half the price of the high end tablets. Build quality is excellent. If high definition is important to you than you will have to go the next step up, but I don't have a problem with the screen as is. I read all the comparisons and reviews of other products on the market and honestly after purchasing this tablet is realized how nitpickey those "expert" reviews can be. This is a solid product and will serve you well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I think this product represents a very needed entity in the technology world. Computing devices that work really well that are affordable to almost anybody. I believe this product hits the sweet spot for someone like me that has both a high end laptop and desktop machine and a S7 smartphone that all are very good but there are times you need a little more screen than a phone, but don't need as much power as the laptop or desktop, this product falls perfectly in place with that need. Very capable for the specs given and price. No its not the last word in screen resolution and processing speed but its more than adequate for almost any need besides high end gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the cost Owned for 8 months and find this tablet has realistic colors, bright display,and really easy to use. My wife has the same model ( galaxy tab A 8.0 ) and has owned hers for 18 months with no problems encountered during that time. However I do find that the navigation buttons ,during low light situations , are invisible making them sort of hard to locate right away. Samsung could have installed some lighting there . Have a great desktop computer that I love, however since owning this tablet, it has been gathering dust and I find myself using this tablet as my primary computer. Overall I score this tablet 4 & 1/2 out of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase This is my second Samsung Tab, my first finally became so outdated I had to replace it. Because it was so good, I bought a Samsung Smart TV, use Samsung phones, and when it came time to replace, I didn't think twice...I bought another Samsung Tab. (I still use my first one now & then) I didn't realize this might not have some of the features I expected, but at the cost I should have known and after initial disappointment, I quickly came to appreciate what a great product and value it is for the cost. Battery life is good, playback on video is smooth and good, it's slim and easy to hold even though I have it in a case. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung Galaxy Tab A I love my tablet it was my first purchase to get into the computer world. I did have a regular computer but this was nothing like a stand alone computer. I got it for my birthday last year. I don't know why is is not registered. I have since this year bought a Samsung smartphone. I attented classes offered by samsung and learned quite alot, and learned more by reading and experimenting with it. I made alot of mistakes and resolved all of them. This is a good starter product for someone like me who is a older Social Security Buyer. It is a little overwhelming at first but the tablet helps with all the questions I needed to ask. Great purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE MY NEW TABLET! After much research, I decided that the best tablet for me would be the Samung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 I did not know if it would be all everyone said it was. When it arrived, I was shocked. Samsung has made a beautiful, great-performing tablet that is pack-loaded with awesome features. Multi-Window, smart manager, reading mode, and ultra power saving mode are just a few of my favorite features on this tablet. I loved it so much, that for the great price, I ordered my brother one as well. I cannot express how impressed I am that Samsung has done it again with a beautiful, user-friendly tablet at such a great price! Thank you so much Samsung!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, I found the tablet I needed During the last few weeks of actually buying a few other tablets and then returning them because of there lack of features and support, I finally decided on the Samsung Tab A 8". Yes, there are other tablets that have more features for lower prices however, they do not perform as well. Samsung is a well known company that you can trust while other tablet making companies lack what Samsung provides for their customers. I have seen 4 & 5 start reviews about the Samsung Tab A 8" and those reviews were from people that have purchased the Tab A 8". You will not regret buying the Tab A 8". Thank you Samsung for a great tablet!
