I am a technology supervisor for a major corpation and I see many tablets, laptops, desktops, and technological devices come through my door and be a part of my shelves and merchandise. This tablet right here is amazing, the view is a large friendly display. Easy to use and access by even those not technologically savie. The utilization of the Microsoft office products on it is extremely helpful with business users and the student crowd alike. Or even for those at home simply with a craving to write or jot down ones thoughts. The slide sync capability is amazing when paired with brother and sister Samsung devices and I should say should be recognized as a one of a kind program with this device it works flawlessly. The best part is the cost, you aren't giving an arm and a leg and looking to your wallet to break you! Samsung could not have releaseda more amazing product. This is the technology release of the year in my opinion, nay the century. This is definitely a trump card to the world of technology to take the stakes to the next level!!! Good job Samsung!

I am enjoying the Samsung Galaxy Tab A. Many people hate it right off the bat because of the lower quality, however I haven't been bothered by it. I guess I'm not that picky. The Tab A isn't a high-end tablet in the means of performance, but it is of course fast enough for watching videos web browsing, and many games, but HD games may lag on this device. I have had a good video watching experience, although this tablet is in 4:3 display, instead of 16:10, which is a bit better for video watching. Overall, the screen was not as crisp as other premium tablets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, but I think it looks good enough. Now for the design: I enjoyed the design of the tablet. It's nice to look at. The back of the tablet has a nice and smooth material, that doesn't show scratches or fingerprints very easily, and is nice and smooth to the touch. The Tab A 9.7 inch also has 2 built in speakers, rather than one. This makes the audio sound much better, with no audio distortion. And for the features: The Samsung Galaxy Tab A comes preloaded with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and all the stuff like that. These are services that you would normally have to pay for, but you get them free with this tablet. This makes the Tab A pretty useful for typing and doing work. There is another feature you can get with this tablet called the S pen. I did not get the S pen version, so I don't have anything to say about it, but I have heard that it's good. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 inch is a good tablet. It isn't made for HD gaming, but it's decent for watching videos, browsing the internet, writing, and more. If you want the most HD and fastest tablet, I would recommend the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 or Tab Pro. But I think this tablet is good for what it is, at a fairly cheap price. If you don't want to break the bank, but want something that does the job, this is a good one to get.

I don't / won't let anyone touch mine, so you'll have to get your own.... I'm a bit protective with things that I love.... I'm sure you'll feel the same once you own one... you won't regret this purchase.. Now go on... Get !!!!!!

                                        This is the second Samsung tablet I've purchased. My first one fell off the stairmaster onto tile. It still worked, but the screen was too smashed. I purchased this model since it had a faster processor and was the biggest in my price range. My previous tablet was 10.1" and this was is 9.7". You can have multiple things running and it doesn't bog down. The only thing I'm not too happy with is the volume controller. When I'm on the treadmill and have to up the volume , it puts a warning that listening to your device at a high volume could cause damage to your ears. Yeah, I don't care. Sort of annoying. It has no issues connecting to bluetooth devices or wi-fi. It's a great tablet and I got it at the right price a week before black friday. All of my phones and tablets are Samsung due to Samsung's reliability. (I bought this little guy a protective cover with bumpers)... ;-)

                                            I use this tablet for school, email, social media, recipes and more. It is a great fix on the WiFi for when my phone is dying. It keeps up at the speed I need and has a large screen, so I can see everything well. I would purchase again.

                                                I like the Samsung tablet. It exceeded my expectations. It also affordable, lightweight, and has great amount of memory. It will read up to 128gb micro SD card. I would recommend this product to any one.

                                                    I love this product, but for the first month or so everything was fine, then all of a sudden the built in weather forecast app just stopped working. I really do depend on that app would like it fixed, hope you can help

                                                      To begin, I would like to say I am in no way a master of technology nor do I claim to be technologically gifted in any way. I just know what works for me, and that usually happens to be Samsung products. I'm not saying they are ALL superior. I'm just saying that of all of the brand's I've used, Samsung's have always outlasted and outperformed them in ways that were important to me. This is only the second tablet I have owned (the first was of a different brand) but I LOVE this tablet. The screen it beautiful and super hi-def, sound and speakers are great for watching videos, it is fast when searching the web and just super user friendly. Perfect for portable entertainment and searching and the ability to browse the web on the go

                                                      Zillow's app is not compatible with this tablet. Every time I need to access Zillow, I have to go to my computer. Too bad. My phone is compatible with Zillow's app but not this tablet. Also, I have not been able to use the Logitech case with keyboard to write in other languages. I have to use the on-screen keyboard which takes up a lot of screen space. In other words, I am still very dependent on my computer.
