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.

        MY FIRST TABLET

        By

        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:

        My first foray into the table world and this device is proving to be a lot of fun. There is a learning curve that I am still on, but so far I have no complaints. I find it to be faster than my new laptop running windows 10. So when the laptop is bogged down I grab the tablet. The touch keyboard is taking some getting used to and I need to take better advantage of the intuitive aspect. Crystal clear screen is easy to work with. Using it while watching TV when lighting is low is great.

                  This is so convenient for travel and to find information on the internet. I have several tablets and my favorite one is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. This is a TabA. It is a smaller version of the 4 and wonderfully functional. Get one (or two).

                      Bought this tablet to take the place of my S2 when I had to send that one in for service. I am totally impressed with this small tablet! I connected it to my Bluetooth keyboard so I could use it for email. Also use it for web-surfing and watching movies. It connects quickly with my wi-fi signal and is pretty fast. The battery life is fantastic. I can use it all day and still have about 40 to 50% of the charge left in the evening when I turn it off. I have put in a 64gb sd card to store all of the photos I have on it. It only has 8 gb of internal storage and much of that is already in use so I only downloaded a couple of games I like to play while waiting for appointments, etc. There are limitations because of the small amount of storage but you can get around some of that by using an sd card. The small rear speaker is adequate but when I listen to music I use my Bluetooth speaker or my earphones. I bought a nice little MoKo Slim-Fit case for it and even though I have my S2 back I still am using this tablet often.

                        I love the reading and outdoors modes, the power saving option is very useful, and the image quality is excellent. The only problem I have is that my tablet won't connect to YouTube, I don't know if it is the tablet or my wifi, I only experience this problem past midnight, so it's not a big problem. 4.9 Stars!

                                        This Galaxy Tab A6 7" is exactly as I hoped it would be. What a fantastic little tablet. I use it to do everything from A-Z , including my writing projects such as keeping up with my multiple email accounts and creating a catalog of my original short stories and poetry -to- my favorite past-time of video watching which on this device I can do on all of my many platforms. Every app I need is available and is so smooth with this beautiful operating system which has a built in junk cleaner and data manager. I also love there is no bloatware on this tab so I have plenty of available memory. Thank you Samsung for putting such a wonderful product on the market!

                                        I quite liked it at the beginning but two issues changed my opinion . Firstly the lock screen PIN pad is too small for comfortable use. It makes accessibility settings pointless if you cannot even unlock it. And then there is Guest user impossible to remove/disable allowing access to the tablet from locked screen with a swipe. Disappointing.

                                            I like the size of this tablet at 7 inches. The display is very clear and easy to read. Watching videos on this tablet is a great experience. Overall a good tablet. Would recommend an external SD card if you are planning to use this as your primary digital source in a paperless world.

                                                  Back button and split screen button are in a bad location and very sensitive. I have frequently been kicked out of a book just by moving my hands nearby. I have some problems using the non-reader parts of the device because I am not totally familiar with android yet. This is my third nook and except for these problems quite the best.
