The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is a good addition to the Samsung Galaxy series. And the flagship Galaxy design is all here. It fits nicely in the 10.1-inch Android line up. However, the casing is plastic, with the rough textured back panel. Like regular it has medium sized bezels. It weighs around 1.16 Ib and the physical dimensions are 10.0 x 6.11 x 0.32 inches.

This tablet is heavier than rival devices with similar screen sizes, and it’s also thicker, but part of this can be having a 7300mAh battery. It comes with a home button which is a flagship for Samsung devices. To the top comes the charging slot and an audio jack. To the bottom resides the dual stereo speakers.
The power and volume rockers are available on the right. The Buttons are also plastic. And just below these buttons, you will find an SD card slot. At the back comes the chrome finished camera neighboring a LED flash. On the front top comes the front camera and a sensor. Samsung branding is available in two places. It has a magnetic back panel where you can buy a magnetic case.
Describing the display quality, it is really outstanding and is really near to expensive devices like Apple iPad Pro. The pixel density is 224 ppi which are perfect. The aspect ratio of the display is 16: 10. The tab is ideal for watching videos, browsing the web and even do your word documents. I have played some full HD videos. These videos played incredibly, and the wide viewing angles are marvelous.
The display has a rotate option but basically designed for portrait use. And perfectly suitable for people who prefer to use in portrait mode. Outdoor visibility is not the best part of this device and if you want to use a tab outside you can opt for Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 which is an AMOLED screen. The display quite is reflective even in

Samsung Galaxy Tab A is a chip designed for light to medium demand, and its benchmarks bear this out. On the Geekbench 4 CPU test, the Samsung tab scored 726 on single core and 3606 on the multi core. The Antutu Score is 46078, the quadrant score is 25641 and finally, the Nenamarkv2 Graphic score is 56.1fps. These scores are not on the best terms. For better performance, it would be better to close all the apps before launching any heavy app.
It has smart connect feature where you can connect to your smartphone and check messages and reply to them. The touch wiz UI packs some interesting features like swipe your hand to capture a screen shot. And some other gesture models are also available. Stereo speakers are loud and clear.

The best thing is you can browse the web with ease. The text is clear so you can also read without straining your eyes for long periods.

I played the unkilled game initially, to understand how much heavy gaming it can render. The Gameplay is smooth and clear. No lags are identified. I also played Frontline Commando WW2. This game is also rendered well. The gameplay, the graphic quality, and the sound everything seems noble. No heating issues persisted.
But the problem comes with carrying the device. If you are playing games in portrait mode it would be better. Even though the games are wonderful, handling the device may be quite difficult. If you are having a kid then let them play talking tom. It would give them great pleasure. I’m not a big fan of these games even though it made me laugh.

All details are clear and attractive.
The front 2MP camera gives impressive selfies. Video calling is flawless. The selfies came clear with no noise. But the beauty mode didn’t seem to make much difference other than softening the picture. We have also tested a video with the front camera. The details are good and satisfactory.
