Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Wi-Fi Review
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Wi-Fi 16GB is a highly affordable tablet you should be looking forward to if you are interested in working with such a gadget. The price-to-quality ratio is extremely good, and you will be pleased to discover the available features of the tablet, which comes shipped with the 4.2 version of the Android operating system. The Jellybean OS is not highly demanding, but the tablet packs quite a fair amount of power so you can enjoy both the interface and any other added apps and games. If you are looking for more versatility, you can upgrade the OS to the latest version, Lollipop, or 5.0.
The heart of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Wi-Fi 16GB is a dual-core processor that runs at 1.5GHz. The Qualcomm APQ 8016 is a mid-range CPU that does its job pretty well, but it could not do much if it were not for the 1.5GB of RAM memory, which is also available. The OS upgrade also means better RAM management, so you should look forward to this moment.
The TFT screen of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Wi-Fi 16GB will probably feel a little under-par, but you need to remember the price tag of the tablet. With this in mind, it is worth mentioning the touchscreen features an 8-inch resolution. However, the 3:4 screen format, which gives a 768 x 1024 resolution, might feel a bit weird, at least in the beginning. However, the device has a 69% screen-to-body ratio, which is extremely good.
The internal memory of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Wi-Fi 16GB, just as its name implies, features 16GB of storage space; if this does not seem much, the tablet comes with a card slot. Inside, you can fit a micro SD that can add up to 128GB of extra space to your device, so that you can easily install all of your favorite games, and still have plenty of room for multimedia content, be it songs, photos or movies.
The tablet features two cameras, and the main one is able to record 720p videos, which you can later enjoy. The primary camera has a 5MP sensor and its maximum resolution goes up to 2592 x 1944 pixels. The secondary camera only provides 2MP, but the photos are still high quality. The 4200 mAh battery seems a bit underwhelming, but remember the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8" Wi-Fi 16GB does not have a huge screen that needs to be powered, so that battery life is quite good. The tablet comes with a series of pre-installed applications, and probably one of the most useful ones will prove the Kids Mode, if you have some children around. When they want to have fun with the tablet, all you have to do is to turn on the app and you can rest assured nothing of importance will be available for the kids.
