Excellent tablet, performs very well for me!. After 2 years, I am still very happy with this tablet. Detailed review follows
by Valued Customer on May 05, 2015

Updated review June 26, 2017Well, I have owned this tablet for over TWO YEARS and it auto updated to Marshmallow in late April, 2017. It still charges to 100 percent, and still runs perfectly. Since I have had this tablet close to the first day it came out and I really am pleased with it, even more so now (June 26, 2017). When I purchased it, I was looking for a 9.7 size and a tablet that would do what I wanted a nice and useful tablet yet not the most pricey one out there. Hence, I bought this Tab A 9.7 and am so pleased with it. The purpose of this review is to hopefully help you decide if this tablet is the right one for you or not Below are the PROS and the CONS that I found after testing this tablet:Also, after purchasing a new HP wireless printer and installing 3 apps from Playstore, I print directly from this tablet over WiFisee info in comments.PROS/SPECIAL FEATURES:+ Size - I had the Tab 4 10.1 and the 8.0 before this tablet. The 10.1 was just too large and bulky and heavy. This tablet is lighter than my old Tab 4 10.1 and more comfortable to hold and to carry in my purse or backpack.Screen Resolution, Brightness and Other Info � Yes, the resolution on this screen is not the highest one out there, yet I find the display clear and easy to view, read eBooks, etc. So. But do not let the resolution scare you away because the screen is clear and the colors are so vivid, they just pop with color! And I find it easy to read eBooks, watch videos, etc on this tablet. For the price of this tablet, I find that the tablet has been a great purchase because after 6 months of using it every day, I am still very happy with it. There are other tablets out there that are much pricier as Tab S2 a d now the Tab S3, but for me, I shall keep this one! The screen aspect ratio is 4:3 vs the 16:1 type of screen. For me, I like this 4:3 screen because I found that the webpages are easier to read and clearer, I did not have to scroll to the right. Also I found that the pictures on a website were easier to view. I compared this tablet with my older Tab 4 10.1 tablet on my frequent webpages and while I viewed this tablet, I could read the larger text better, read my eBooks much clearer, emails better etc. This is my personal discovery from my testing of this and comparing it to my older tablet.+ Battery life/Speed � Very good battery life! For me, I have found that I am constantly on WiFi (Internet). However, I also find that this tablet gets me 2 to 3 hours MORE daily than my older Tab 4 10.1 did! Even after over two years of ownership, I am experiencing excellent battery life.The tablet I find is quite responsive and peppy with no lagging. The Lollipop runs this tablet wonderfully.+ WiFi Connecting/Speed of WiFi and MORE - This tablet connects SUPER quickly to my home WiFi and has never ever dropped the WIFi signal no matter where I am in my home. WiFi is VERY STRONG using this device, even when I am very far from my router I still have 4.5 bars! To test the speed and strength of this WiFi and compare it to my other Android devices, I went to the Playstore and got the free app called WiFi Analyzer. This is a MUST HAVE app for any Android device as it gives you a visual report on the WiFi strength of your tablet, phone etc.+ SPECIAL INFO about INTERNET CONNECTION - Yes, this is a WiFi only, but when you are away from an WiFi internet hotspot location, there are ways to can get onto the internet such as MiFi and there are ways that you can purchase equipment so that you can have data when you do not have a WiFi hotspot available.+ Internet And Webpage And Video Viewing - The stock browser does a wonderful job and it opens up webpages very fast. Also I tried Maxthon Browser and this worked very well yet I still prefer the Internet App. Also, I tried out the factory installed Chrome Browser and liked it OK, yet again, I went back the the stock Internet App (this is my preference). Note that the Playstore has many very good (FREE) internet browsers as Dolphin, Opera and many more!+ EXTERNAL SLOT FOR MICRO SD CARD. This is a must for me as I keep my personal files, photos, and music on my internal SD card. I installed a SanDisk 32GB SD card and it works great on this tablet and I placed my music and files on it and have plenty of space left.- + Camera / Video Camera - I found it OK for a 5MP with no flash on this camera, however, in good lighting the pictures came out better had I expected. However, I rarely use this camera as I prefer to use my Nikon digital camera for my overall picture takingthe camera on this tablet is OK for backup camera, taking pictures to send in an email, etc). Do not expect the camera on this tablet to replace your digital camera since it does not have a flash and 5MP is rather low by todays standards.+ Home Videos - The stock video player is OK and plays MOST home videos, however, may I suggest QQ Player (Free App from Playstore and the ONLY one I recommend as it plays every home video I tried).+ Music Player/Sound Quality - This model has the regular MUSIC App, which plays by playlists, songs, albums and even folders. Also there is Google Music app is pre-installed in this tablet and does a fine job. However, I installed the FREE app called Rocket Player from the Playstore and love this music player! As for sound quality - The best way to really enjoy music is through a high quality Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth headset as the sound quality is superb this way and you can walk about your home listening to your music!+ OTG USB Compatible - This tablet comes with a free OTG On the Go adapter cable. Just plug in your flash drive and you can copy files to the flash drive so easily or view files that are on the flash drive. Note that portable external hard drives and portable DVD/CD drives will not work using OTG in this tablet because they require a lot of power.CONS:- Just ONE CON - Wish that the resolution were higherhowever I am very happy with the display's colors and readability etc (see pictures).This is the only con I could find personally. However, as I stated above, this is not a deal breaker for me as I find the screen adequate.Bottom line- The price is OK (not cheap) and it is the PERFECT SIZE, LIGHTWEIGHT TO HOLD and I am very happy with the tablet overall as it is peppy, colors vivid and this is a great tablet for reading and internet, etc.However, for me, I really am enjoying this tablet and my true score is 4.4 stars because of the resolution..Bottom line and my true rating is 4.3 stars (rounded off to 4 stars) because of the resolution. However, if you are looking for a tablet with lots of features and Samsung quality, and do not have to have the very highest resolution, then highly consider this excellent tablet!

I liked the white casing on this one

i ordered the samsung Galaxy tav a 9.7 because i was looking for something to work on while sitting in my chair in the living room at night watching tv. I looked at this brand as well as the Ipad air. They both looked eqivalent to each other, and i really think it is a persons preference. I liked the white casing on this one,it has a full picture, the Ipad air had a 1 inch boarder around the screen. Also the upgrade on the samsung is cheaper then the Ipad. All and all i love the samsung and would purchase another if I had to.

Amazingly awesome tablet!
by Valued Customer on October 05, 2016

Amazing tablet! Performs just as fast as my note 4 and can handle multiple apps at once. I bought it refurbished from ocean reef electronics. It looked brand new and worked perfectly. The bluetooth is awesome, I connected my speaker, headphones and a keyboard at different times. It is fast and I use it every day for school. It came preloaded with microsoft office apps which was great! Not a lot of bloatware. It also came already upgraded to Android 6.0 marshmallow. I got an amazing deal on a practically new tablet and I could not be happier!UPDATE4/25/17The tablet is dead. I left it charging at night and the next morning it was dead! Contacted seller and was instructed to contact manufacturer. Samsung wants me to pay for repairs. Not happening. Gonna see if I can fix it myself. Up till this point the tablet was flawless. Maybe it is a product of the refurbishment? I don't know, but I can't give up on this tablet yet. Will update if I get it working again.UPDATE4/26/17It charges now but only with a low voltage charger, a 1A charger, not a fast charger like all the other samsung chargers I have. Apparently it doesn't like samsung fast charging chargers anymore. I don't care I'm just overjoyed my tablet is working again!

Best tablet in the low market.
by Valued Customer on August 08, 2016

Did my research and for the money this tablet has it. Very fast and compatible with most apps. I use Samsung products so the sync app works well to condense the use of so many items at once. The display is great for watching movies or playing the occasional game. The battery life seems like its days of heavy use so i really can't give an idea of how long it lasts.

this for my mom to use and it's been great! It's much easier for her to write out
by Valued Customer on April 05, 2016

We bought this for my mom to use and it's been great! It's much easier for her to write out Chinese characters on a tablet than to type out pinyin on pcs. She uses it everyday without issue. Works like it should!We did need to buy an external sdcard to expand the memory because 16gb was less than what we needed.

Good value, great user experience
by Valued Customer on August 05, 2016

I love this tablet more than the iPad it replaced. Plus it was so much more affordable than a new iPad. The Galaxy is easy to use, very intuitive. It's very simple and inexpensive to add extra memory. I deducted a star because the app store doesn't have all of the apps that I could get on the iPad. That's not really the fault of the device but it does affect the user experience so I don't feel I'm being unfair in rating it. I do like it well enough that I think I will be replacing my iPhone with a Galaxy a Samsung as well.

I absolutely love this tablet! It has many functions and I'm pleased with the fact that it can perform multiple tasks in different screens. I've had it for a while now and I'm sure I haven't used everything that it can do.

Great tablet. Difference between this one and the more
by Valued Customer on August 21, 2015

Great tablet. Difference between this one and the more expensive Galaxy (and iPad) is screen resolution. I'm sure there are those out there who can pick out the difference. Maybe they're running different apps than I am. But I've had this tablet side-by-side with the latest iPad and I hardly if at all notice a difference in screen resolution.

Nice size and color for my young daughter. The tablet is fast for everything she throws at it. Expandable Micro SD card slot is a plus. The battery last very long.

Nice Tablet for My Basic Needs!
by Valued Customer on November 17, 2015
Verified Purchase

I like this tablet. Yes, it is not the very best display out there and yes, it only has 16 GB storage on board..but at $180.00 (used, in perfect cond.), I like itA LOT! I just could not spend $400+ on a tablet. I could not do it. Luckily, I found this one used.I have had laptops/desktops, android phones, but this is my first tablet. 9.7 is much better size than 10.1 IMHO. I plan to use it in general: web browsing, recipe hunting for the holidays, some Candy Crush maybe, and streaming music to my new Bose Sound Touch 10 (Wifi And BT) speakers. I could not spend $400 on one speaker either like you do for most Bose stuff. (so, i spent $380 on two. I have some standards :) hey 'cuse me. off topic..I know.I gotta watch the number of apps loaded on the device, no downloading of War and Peace, and maybe get a micro sd card for add'l storage but so far so good. (okay, it has only been 8 hours since I received it. :)Set up was a breeze..just logged into existing google and also samsung accounts. I also waited for the system update and updates of the loaded apps. The result was less than 9 GB storage remaining. Response times are still good using Chrome for web browsing and a few apps including Bose' Controller app (which needs some work), and tweeking the settings. For my needs, this tablet is a great solution the display is adequate and I have a workaround for the limited storage.Also, I would definitely buy from this seller again. The advertised product was exactly what I received.Hopefully, I don't cause trouble by including his name here: Issac Walters. I look forward to more of his ""Used - like New"" products.I'll supply an update if things drastically go wrong but I think I'm good!
