Do Two Things at Once: Make the most out of your tablet time with advanced multitasking tools. Easily open two apps side by side so you can flip through your photos while browsing online. Check social media and your social calendar at the same time. With Multi Window*** on the Galaxy Tab A, you can do more, faster.
Design, Display, and ConnectivitySamsung’s midrange A-series tablets are created with casual users in mind. Sizes in the Tab A family range from 7 to 10.5 inches.
Processor, Battery, and CameraThe tablet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at 1.4GHz. It’s a common processor for budget tablets, though at three years old, it’s nearing its expiration date. There’s also 2GB of RAM, making the Tab A feel slightly snappier than tablets with 1 or 1.5GB of RAM (like the Fire HD 8). Apps opened quickly and basic multitasking worked without a hitch in testing. We were even able to play Asphalt 8 without problems. We did, however, begin to experience slowdown once more than a half dozen apps were open.
Software and Features: The Tab A ships running Android 7.1, however there’s an OTA udate to Android Oreo 8.1 with Samsung Experience 9.5 once you take it out of the box. Samsung’s custom UI has improved vastly over the last few years. Unfortunately, there are still a handful of redundant apps like Samsung Mail, Samsung Internet, and Samsung Notes that cannot be uninstalled.
