Disappointed

Huebel Family 8/12/2020

i had my previous tab a sm-t380nzke and absolutely loved it, but unfortunately it was stolen and decided to upgrade. what a disappointment! it has a constant lag and glitch while playing games. what is even more disappointing is that i can't even load apps to my microsd card! it would be very helpful if they would state what exactly can be placed on the external memory card. if i'm not doing something right for this to happen i would like to know and would consider changing my 1star rating!

Useless device

YASMEEN 7/18/2020

i just bought this device for thr second time and have to return this one too. the first one was purchased from sam's club and was missing the adapter but since we have a dozen of those lying around, it wasn't a big deal. the main issue was that it was slow and sluggish. the touchscreen was very slow to respond making it very frustrating to use. assuming i got a lemon, i returned it and purchased a second one today from best buy. this one was missing the sim card rendering it completely useless!! does samsung just not have any quality control or are they selling refurbished devices in new packaging? i don't get it. never again.

Regrets! Wished id spent extra 150 for ipad.

J Haus 7/7/2020

so angry for not spending the extra 150 and getting myself an ipad. 2017 model runs circles around this garbage. samsung you don't belong in the budget realm of things whatsoever. micro usb still a useless micro sd card slot because you can't save freaking apps to it. who the is going to take 512 gb worth of photos on a tablet with an eight megapixel non-flash camera. i think android anything is severely lacking in optimization for app storage as that in my opinion is one of the most important and appreciated features of my ios devices and since android can't do what apple does i don't give your users a choice on what's more important to them movie storage or app storage since obviously android doesn't give both.

Piece of junk.

Morzh 5/18/2020

Bought this last December. It was ok. Then 3 months ago it started dropping WiFi. I tried support, WiFi reset.....everything. Eventually I switched to slower WFi, and it seems to work. I have 7 other devices and this one is the only one that does it. Cheap piece of junk. Should've bought other manufacturer, this is not the only Samsung product that I am having quality problems with.

So slow and sluggish!

MikeFlorida 5/6/2020

I bought this tablet three months ago and I wanted to give it some time before reviewing. This tablet is ridiculously slow and sluggish. There is a lag between you tapping something and subsequent action on the screen. Unacceptable for a name brand like Samsung. It's cheap, for sure, but you get what you pay for. Basically, an expensive paper weight. Positives: battery life is great.

Chenago 5/3/2020

Samsung just can't hit the mark when it comes to tablets. First thing out of the box, that old microUSB port stared me in the face. After that, everything went down hill. Just skip this tablet.

Does not have basic features that other ones have.

Howmeow 3/21/2020

It doesn't support screen mirroring. It doesnt allow you to move apps to the SD card. It still uses micro USB not USB-C. This is the first Samsung product I have been disappointed with. It took 3 tech support people before one finally figured out this model doesnt have screen mirroring...

Not sure what I was expecting

Samsung Tablet Fan 2/27/2020

Purchased this tablet at Best Buy for $129. Needed something for school. I wasn't able to download the apps that I needed to use to study from, from my Windows Surface Go Tablet, so I figure this would help. I could have just used my phone, but wanted something a little bigger. The batter life is good. It is slow. I made the mistake of importing my apps from my Note 9 and that wasn't a good choice. I've since gone through and deleted a lot of apps, to hopefully make it a little faster. I do like that it is light in weight and thin. But I also get a little frustrated that it's a little slow. I've only had it for a week. I still haven't decided if I'm going to keep it. If nothing else, since I do have a Kindle, I could use it as a bigger e-reader.

Awful WiFi Connectivity.

Louie 2/25/2020

Don't waste your time or money on this tablet because you will regret it. The tablet is super slow and the inconsistent WiFi connection due to the cheap internal antenna will have you going crazy.

Almost good, could have been great

Onenicus 2/21/2020

Almost good, if the wifi was unthrottled. Nothing worse then a beautiful tablet with a dinosaur 28.8 modem speed at download. The upload speed is actually faster. Just isn't right.

Very Satisfied

Ryan 1/31/2020

I bought this tablet to test my android apps, and needed Android Pie with decent performance. This tablet delivered all that I expected and meets all of my business needs, including Chromecast screen mirroring for presentations, etc. Some people are complaining about performance and speed, however it exceeds my expectations, with the speed in my opinion around the latest iPad Mini. It loads apps fast, and can take whatever you throw at it. I love the aluminium build, and it feels extremely durable which is great for travel (which is a must for me). Overall, I would highly recommend this tablet for gaming or business. It is a great alternative for the iPad Mini, also with a cheaper price. In my opinion, it is currently the best Android tablet at the moment, especially for the price.

Not what I expected from samsung

Pauthos38 1/31/2020

I bought this on sale at costco. Do not waste time or money. This thing was not what I was expecting especially from samsung. You get the same features from a cheap $30 tablet. It's slow, you can add and sd card which does no good because this tablet does not even have the basic feature of allowing you to move any apps to it. I am an avid samsung user and fan, but very disappointed in spending money on this tablet. I expected basic for the price, but this is below even that.

Tab A and/or Termux App Not Working Well Together

Doug 1/23/2020

Great tablet!! But I bought this Galaxy Tab A with 8'' screen a few nights ago, a main reason being so I can use the Termux app on it. But the Tab A and Termux are apparently not working well together. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the Tab A or the Termux app. When Termux is running on my Tab A, characters aren't appearing on the screen immediately after being pressed on the onscreen keyboard. But a sequence of characters appears after I press the spacebar. I looked online, and other people say they're having the same problem. When will this problem be fixed? Again, I don't know if it's a problem with the Tab A - maybe just its onscreen keyboard, or a problem with the Termux app, or both. But Termux seems to work fine on my larger Samsung Galaxy, and on my OnePlus 6t smart phone. I also left this same message, except edited as appropriate, in the comments section of an internet page for the Termux app. I hope Samsung and/or Termux can correct that problem pretty soon.

Great value, nice size. Let down by memory option

Pitguy 12/30/2019

Update of my previous review.. Pro. Great value. Great to find a small tablet for reading books, watching movies. Con. Probably androids fault, but ... you can put a massive 256 or 512 GB sad card in, but only store media on it. You can not A. Format it as internal memory, like other brand android devices with modern android, and B can not move apps to the se card, like you could with previous Samsung and android devices. Apps, esp children's apps, children's book apps and games are huge, and you can run out of space soon. V. Disappointing. Minor cons. No auto sleep wake when you close and open a case. No modern usb socket, used micro usb. Could use a slightly higher res screen. I was going to return mine because I ran out of app space. I had a screen with my 8year olds apps, a screen with apps for a 4yo. And a screen for me. Used up all the memory. solution is that everyone e has to have less apps, get board with them, and change them for the next one. Keeping it now, living with the memory limit for the convenience of the size of the device.

Great Except Can Not Put Apps on SDCard

PittGuy 12/29/2019

Got mine for Christmas, and 3 days later I had used 30 out of 32GB internal storage on apps. Bought a samsung 256GB sdcard ( great value at A ). Put in, format, and .. no way to move apps to sd card. The option ( apps, app, storage, move ) is not there. The newer android option to format sdcard as internal st6is also not there. So I'm returning the tablet. Shame, otherwise nice paperback book sized modern tablet with great battery life. No auto sleep wake function that I could find either. Has micro USB, not the newer usb. Again, shame.

Very slow

trailblazer15 12/29/2019

People are expecting too much from a budget tablet that's only $150 msrp. I'm coming from a 3 year old Lenovo Tab 4 8.0 and this is better than that. They brought back the ambient light sensor for auto brightness, though it doesn't work that well. Comes with Android 9.0 out of the box. It has micro USB yes, but again, this is a budget tablet not a Galaxy Tab S. It plays all my games just fine and it plays Netflix and Plex. It also has 32gb internal storage plus micro sd slot which is more than others. Screen is nice, speakers are good, gets loud and have more bass than I thought they would. Has a headphone jack. Overall this is the budget tablet to get, blows away the Kindle fires because it has Play Store. I just wish they would have put a little faster processor, faster storage, and more memory in it because it is very slow. It takes hours to install or update a handful of apps.
