Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020)

60% Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4
Source: PC Mag English
The petite Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4 is the right size and price for a go-anywhere, color e-reading tablet. At $265 with T-Mobile service, it comes in at a much lower price than its primary rival, the iPad mini, which costs $399 with Wi-Fi or $529 for a cellular model. But I experienced issues with the Galaxy Tab A's Wi-Fi performance in testing, which leads me to give it a much weaker recommendation than I otherwise would.

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
