I've owned this tablet for about a year and have not experienced one problem or glitch. It is very reliable the web research that I sometimes do as well as keeping up with the news, current events, weather, email and it takes good videos and photos. In other words I LIKE IT. The micro SD expandable memory is also a big plus to store my files and photos. Excellent value tablet!

The operating system takes up half the device storage of 8 gb and the preinstalled apps take up another third. Most of the pre-installed apps cannot be uninstalled even though most people will not use many of them. Most of those apps cannot be moved to the microSD card. Even worse the apps cannot write to the sd card. This means that if the user installs a few custom apps, the apps are fighting for a gb of internal memory. This is especially frustrating after paying for an Sd card to expand the memory only to discover that unless you manually move data every few hours, your device runs out of memory with over 100 gb unused on the card. This glaring and obvious problem seems to be a design choice in android. As a result, this otherwise fantastic device is completely hamstrung.

    I just purchased and have only been using it for a brief period of time. I have used at least 4 other leading brands. In my opinion I find that the Galaxy is easier to use than most others. I am really enjoying my tablet. The only thing I miss is Adobe Flash.

                  BEST TABLET FOR PRICE FOR SURE I recommended because I have have owned a numerous amount of devices and in comparison I am much happier with Samsung products. Only device I am yet to try from any type of system or brand are the wearables. I wish to own the Frontier gear S3 for a long time nowith but I can commit due to the price being to high.

                        Randy O. Monterey County, CA 93901 On a positive note, as a 57 yr. old male, this is my 7th android tablet and I am extremely pleased with my alternative white-colored 7" Samsung Tab A. This is actually my very first white android tablet and I will mention that white appears to be an in color these days and in my opinion offers a more fresh and positive appearance. The color alone sort of puts me in a better mood and helps bring a smile to my face whenever and wherever I need to reach for it!

                            I had had 2 other cheaper similar tablets prior to purchasing this Galaxy tablet . The Samsung Galaxy totally outperforms my previous tablets . Not being a guy who really needs a lap top or pc/Mac I really wanted a reliable tablet that allows me to do what I want/need to do online . Here's hoping that 2 years from now I am still using this fine tablet.

                                              The only thing I was hoping for that would make this tablet perfect would be to have the screen mirroring feature cause I have yet to be able to screen mirror to my roku and that rally sucks but other than that I really like this tablet.

                                                          This is my 2nd tablet to own, but my 4th overall Samsung product. I love the ease of learning how to navigate through everything that is on the Samsung products. And I really don't have to download too many apps to have everything that I need to do my job. I do use this for my work, and it is just great. I love how light weight it is too.
