Rated 1 out of 5 by from Paper Weight Don't forget your initial Login email or password. I did and there's nothing Samsung has done to make it usable. I had a problem and was told to hard reset and now I can't open the tablet. Been on the phone with Samsung several times with no luck. I now have a high cost paper weight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Third Tab A no longer able to charge I am on my 3rd tab A. Two 7 inch and the latest 8 inch. Love it EXCEPT no matter how careful I am with the charging port they have all lasted about a year and then somehow inside they all stop working. I was just going to get a charging pad and not worry about it but - Oh they are not equipped to do that either. Don't buy this product until they fix the charging problem. Or plan to buy one every year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great graphics! I love the graphics. Very clear and sharp. My last galaxy tab had port issues where the charging plug went in. But so far no charging issues or black or white screens so far. I love the lightweight portability of this tablet. And I have had no issues with any of my Google play games! So far I'm very happy to be back on a samsung tablet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storage and display resolution I love playing hidden object games, doing jigsaw puzzles and bingo on my devices. So far I've got 14 games on here, and still have plenty of room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I thought this would be an upgrade from my Samsung Tab 4. Boy, was I wrong. Very disappointed. The picture is not as crisp. App icons are very small and so are the words. If I try to magnify it only some stuff does but it makes it ridiculously large. It hesitates a lot. Battery does not last very long. I could go on and on about what I do not like about this tablet. I guess it is an alright tab for an entry level tablet but I read that this was supposed to replace the Tab 4 so you would think it would be better. Plus it is bigger than my other 8inch tab and makes it harder to hold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Galaxy Tab A 8.0" 16GB (my escape from my laptop) Overall I am very pleased with this tablet. The size is exactly what I wanted to drop in a coat pocket. If I'm working on a project, I can set it next to me and review a manual or or stick it to the dash and watch the GPS. The volume is a bit lacking,,but over all very pleased. The best part of a Droid...YOU DON'T NEED OTHER PROGRAMS TO MOVE FILES TO OTHER PHONES OR COMPUTERS.... YOU TELL IT WHAT YOU WANT..IT'S DONE..
