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.

      This is my second Samsung Tab (first one is Tab2 which still works great) but I needed a bit more power and smaller size for flying my Autel X-Star Premium Drone. Awesome unit and great price.

            This tablet replaced a broken 4lte, I broke it accidentally. The preloaded apps installed on this device will let me remove them, and they take up far to much space...I've had to limit the usual apps that I use with the same amount of on board space as in my other devices...my phone 8 gb no issues less preloaded apps and the same with my old tablet. This is a very serious issue. Why preload apps? most people don't use most of them anyhow..

              Comments about Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T280 8 GB Tablet - 7"" - Plane to Line (PLS) Switching - Wireless LAN Quad-core (4 Core) 1.30 GHz - White:

              Nice HDtype screen/display and runs very fluidly. Right out of the box I was able to connect to my home WI-FI with no problems at all. While I do not run alot of app's, I do scan alot of news to include CNN. No performance issues at all. My one and only complaint (very minor) is that at times my big hands disturb the screen while holding it and ofcourse, the tablet thinks I am touch screening something and I have to hit the back/recall button. It would be helpful if the bezel had a slightly higher lip all the way around the screen. Perhaps that would help. Thus only 4 stars on Design. I am very happy with this purchase and would certainly recommend it to family/friends

                  This replaced an old Galaxy Tab3/7 that just died. I needed a basic Android device so I went with this. Very surprised on how fast this tablet is given the specs.. Ten times faster than the Tab 3 in all respects. Design is almost like the Tab3 less the IR blaster and speaker placement, but that is where the comparison ends. The best thing that Samsung did is not load this tablet with bloatware. Little to none unlike previous purchases. Holds wifi very good and the camera is decent for a tablet. I just wish they could figure out how to add a flash...

                              I had a different tablet and I traded it in for this one. I am so happy I did that and wish I did it sooner! This Samsung Galaxy Tab A doesn't give me a hard time at all. It takes great pictures, it doesn't freeze up like other tablets do. I have no problems with it. Well worth the price and I found mine on sale so that was even better!

                                    Great product. The only thing I dislike is that the memory it is advertised to have is taken up by most of the preloaded ups that you can't uninstall that the tablet came with. I was only able to upload 3 outside additional apps to the tablet before it ran out of space

                                        I wanted a 7" device for reading. My previous tablet, the first nexus 7 finally broke after being dropped on the floor in an airplane. I was afraid of samsungs bloatware but so far I have not really found any. My only complaints is that I would like the 3 buttons at the bottom to be part of the screen so they are lit. Also I would like instead of a hard button for home I would like a soft button like my phone(nexus5x) and previous tablet have. Also I think the previous screen button would be better on the left.

                                          I have a ton of Samsung products, 60 inch smart TV, S7 Edge, older tablets and phones. But this little tablet felt obselete out of the box. Pretty disappointing. It would not stay connected with a video feed from my drone.. got an iPad mini4, no problems since. I can't stand apple products, one physical button and a very restrictive operating system. But I needed it. Build a fast, quality tablet with powerful processing.!

                                            Looks good, but slow. Very slow. Internal memory is ridiculously small, I filled it up in two weeks and now I don't know what to do. No more space for apps. but mainly, SLOW

                                              I bought this tablet to use as a app and live video viewer for Phantom Drone. The video was very laggy from my control inputs. Up to 2 seconds behind on my wifi downlink from the drone. This is not good when you're flying a drone. Other than this problem it's a fine tablet

                                                The 7 inch tablet offers a lot of great features. It's fast and great for videos and games. I like that the tablet comes with Google features so accessing the Google Drive is very easy. I'm not a big fan of the speaker location (on the back of the tablet). Not sure why it's there, but oh well. I'm a big fan otherwise.

                                                    The only manual I could download was for a nook type tablet. This was after I entered the numbers off the white box it came in. This was my only issue. I had to figure some things out based on how my android phone works.

                                                            I bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it. I wanted to stay with Samsung since we both have Samsung phones. There is a lot of similarity between the Phone and the Tablet. There is a lot of choices for "apps" thru the Play Store. I have set up her Facebook account and her Email and they both work just fine. Something we both like about the Tab A is the long battery life. I originally but another tablet and returned it because of short battery life and it was very slow. The speed on the Samsung is quite suffient for our purposes. Would make the same choice of purchasing again. I will recommend this Tablet to some friends who are waiting on us to tell them of our experience with the tablet.
