This is a great product! I love my iPad and apple products, but this is great substitute for those who are looking to try something different. Android is great OS with a small learning curve, but it does allow a lot more customization. The best part about this tablet is you can expand the memory up to 128 GB with a microSD card which will run you between 30 - 50 dollars!
There are so many reviews with the scree being low resolution or dim? Well I am a Professional Graphic Designer, this tablet screen is FINE, for those who plan on using it to watch movies, read books, surf the web, and play some basic games! For the majority of buyers, this product will work perfect for you if you plan on reading books, watching movies, streaming media, etc. For those who think you are actually going to do heavy work load on a tablet then yes, this probably wouldn't be the best choice, BUT honestly who is going to try to do any professional hardcore design work on a tablet? Any serious designer would work on their laptop! The only time we use a tablet is for a quick draft up or something simple, which the Tab A is fine for.
The Tab A has an amazing battery, I have my brightness set at just under 50% (I don't like to have a blinding screen) and I've been using it for almost a week now and still have over 40% left. I've used it every day for news, social media, and streaming, and installation of apps. I also watch a movie via KODI media player for about an hour and noticed the battery only drained about 6%. So overall I think this tablet has a great battery!
I just wanted to ad a note about Amazon Customer service for being Amazing! I give them 10 stars our 5 stars! I am a prime member and was suppose to receive this tablet via USPS on veterans day, after contacted the local post office to make sure that they deliver amazon prime on federally holidays, they confirmed that they did. Well USPS failed to deliver the product, the reason being is that I had an invalid shipping address, and please contact Amazon for further instructions. After speaking a with a rep from Amazon Corporate, and when I told him that I haven't been receiving any Sunday packages on time either, he realized something must wrong. I'll spare the the gory details, the Amazon rep called me back later that afternoon, and said they are in the process of dealing with USPS on this matter, but in the mean time the would like to make things right with me, so the comped my entire order. Yes you heard me right Amazon gave me the Tablet, Case, and Protective screen protector for FREE, for the hassle I had to go through! Amazon has amazing customer service, and they will do what it takes to keep their customers happy, you can't find many companies out there that will go to extreme measure for their clients.

The price is right on this one
I bought this tablet knowing its not going to perform as well as the Galaxy Tab S2 or the iPad air and that this tablet only has a screen resolution if 1024 by 768 but that does not mean this tablet is a bad buy. I love this tablet I cant say it enough. This is my second Android tablet within 3 years and I am very very happy with. It does everything I need it to do without it slowing down or giving me any problems. I love how Samsung has really optimized touchwiz ( The user interface ). Touchwiz works very fast, looks clean and looks nice to. I honestly like Touchwiz more then stock Android. Samsung also did not install much bloatware on the tablet if anything the things that came installed I actually use! One of the things that came installed is called SMART MANAGER which is a application that tells you how much memory you have free, how much free space you have, how much battery is left and security software. Really cool how Samsung made this software to give the user good information about the device. The other software that was installed was the basic google apps like gmail, chrome, play books, ect. Microsoft office also came installed on the tablet which is great because its the full microsoft office so I can edit documents and create documents. Even though I dont use office on my tablets its nice to have just in case I do need to check a word document. This tablet I bought does have the pen with it but I cant really say anything about the pen since I did buy a otterbox for my tablet on day one and the otterbox I bought does not have a flap for the pen unfortunately but the main reason I bought the tablet with the pen is that it comes with 2GB of ram instead of 1.5 GB of ram. I think since the tablet I bought does have 2GB ram that it will help it to last longer since it has a good amount of memory. My tablet also has 16 GB internal memory which is ok but I wish it would of had at least 32 GB memory. Its not enough to make me regret buying it because it does have a SD card slot able to take up to 128 GB and the tablet performs very fast and fluid overall. I did buy a 64 GB samsung evo micros SD card for the tablet, it works as its suppose to. The SD card only cost me $20.00!! Wow thats a great price. I know a good amount of information about computers in general I remember when 16 GB micro SD cards were like $15.00 and now you can buy a 64 GB micro SD cards for $20.00. Anyways the Galaxy tab A 9.7 inch tablet I bought has not given me any problems so far I have had it for almost 3 weeks its been working wonders. Like I said earlier the screen resolution isnt the best but if you think about it like I did. Your getting a 9.7 inch tablet with 2GB ram, a fast quad core processor, decent cameras, bright screen, duel speakers that sound good, amazing battery life, (almost as good as the iPads battery) and something that is pretty light. Its not the lightest tablet or the fastest tablet but for the price you are paying I think its a reasonable price. I really like the 4:3 screen ratio much more then the 16:10 screen ratio like the galaxy tab 4 10.1 inch. The 4:3 screen ratio is great for tablets because it dont feel awkward when I hold my tablet vertically or horizontally whereas the galaxy tab 4 10.1 inch feels weird holding it vertically. The batter life on here is great. With a full charge and casual use I easily get 2 days even 3 if I dont watch much videos. I mainly use the tablet to go online, check my bank, watch youtube and play a few games here and there. I have used this tablet to take some pictures. The pictures dont come out great but they are fine with a good amount of light, I am fine with that because it is a tablet so I dont expect the cameras to compete with my iPhones camera. Overall I am so happy I bought this tablet. This is my second Android tablet I have had. I am someone who mainly uses Apple devices. I am impressed with the overall usability of this tablet. I think it is a much better value then the iPad air since you can expand the storage and you dont have to spend $500.00 on something that ONLY has 16 GB of storage that you CANT expand. Dont get me wrong I do like Apple a ton and will still be buying Apple devices but I am now more interested in Android devices now then I was a year ago. Sure this tablet isnt made out of nice aluminum BUT that dont mean this tablet is cheaply made either. The plastic they use feels nice and sturdy and it dont dent or scratch like aluminum. Below I will list the positives and negatives about this tablet and weather I think its a good buy.
Things I like
1. Screen ratio is a 4:3 ratio
2. Great battery life (about 10 hours of real use)
3. SD card slot, 2GB ram (Only 2GB ram with S Pen model!)
4. Nice build quality for the price
5. Touchwiz defiantly has improved
6. Very little bloatware if any
7. Nice loud decent duel speakers
Things I dont like
1. Only 16GB internal storage
2. Sometimes it can be hard to read small text
3. Uses micro usb to charge instead of usb c
4. The only color that uses the S Pen is brown
This tablet is a great tablet for the price. No you may not be getting something as fast as a iPad air 2 or something that uses aluminum but the things you are getting out of this tablet is usability. The user interface looks great it feels very fast and physically looks nice to. The apps that come preinstalled are good apps that normal people use, they are apps that are well known. Its no slouch by any means, your getting something that has a good build quality with mid range specs for a good price. The one thing I am not so sure about is Samsung Knox. If someone could please tell me what it is and if its a good idea to activate it I would appreciate it:)
P.S. The otterbox for this tablet is great. Even though it does not have a flap for the S Pen I like knowing that my investment will be protected for a long time. The otterbox is made out of nice material that feels good to hold in the hand for long periods of time.

This is the best tablet for my needs that I have seen among the many available. Very simple and so easy to use for quick searches online or just for sending emails using the larger keyboard than my phone. The sound quality is high. It's so versatile I seldom use my laptop any more. The only problem is that the camera is difficult to hold steady to get close-up shots clearly, but the pictures are great.
