Product Expert tablets

With the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 WiFi + Tablet Cover, you can protect your new tablet against scratches and dents from day one. The tablet allows you to watch your favorite series in Full HD and use the latest apps. The screen of this tablet is somewhat larger than that of its predecessor, the Tab A 10.1-inch, but thanks to the thinner edges, the tablet itself is hardly any larger. You can watch series in Full HD, supported by the rich sound of the 4 Dolby Atmos stereo speakers. You can watch up to 14 hours of video on a full battery. The included case doesn't only protect your tablet against scratches and bumps, but it also ensures comfort. You can also fold the book cover into a stand. This way, you don't have to hold your tablet while watching your favorite series.

"Overall great"

By Shaakunthala on 8 March 2019

  • Pros:
    Softkeys are part of UI instead of dedicated button/ area, so I can confidently hold the device on its bezels without accidentally tapping on the back button.
  • Pros:
    App power monitor to save power
  • Pros:
    Secure storage with external SD card encryption
  • Pros:
    Easy to organize home screen compared to Xiaomi and Huawei
  • Pros:
    Double tap screen to wake up
  • Con:
    Samsung bloatware - Samsung Keyboard doesn't have an incognito mode (Google's keyboard has but it wasn't installed)
  • Con:
    Samsung bloatware - Bixby home won't work with Google Keep and Google Calendar
  • Con:
    Microsoft bloatware - unable to remove Skype which is not an integral part of the OS

Overall great experience, but in the beginning it was bit of a hassle to set up because some of the essential Google apps were missing (Keep, Contacts, Docs, Sheets, etc). The audio is great. Although I recommend a wireless headset, it is handy that device already has a 3.5 mm jack.
