Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 (2020)

81.7% Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 LTE Tablet Review: One of the best tablets for less than 300 Euros (~$356) | Notebookcheck
Anyone can offer an expensive tablet, but only few manufacturers offer affordable tablets with good equipment and performance. The stage belongs to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 LTE, since it is distinguished by exactly those virtues, and at 290 Euros (~$345; ~$290 in the US), it is one of the best tablets in its price class.
90% Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 review: Low cost, high value
Source: Android Authority English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is the most complete entry-level Android tablet I’ve reviewed. While I found a few things to complain about, overall it offers a fine experience across the board. With a sturdy chassis, great screen, excellent battery life, and other amenities onboard, the Tab A7 nearly has it all.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Review – How to look good on a budget
Source: Slashgear English
I’m walking away from this review impressed by what the Galaxy Tab A7 has to offer at a $230 price point. While it certainly isn’t going to redefine what a tablet can be, it offers solid performance for those who primarily just need a bigger screen or – like in my case – a separate battery to play games on so they aren’t sending their phone’s battery to an early grave.

80% A cheap tablet is a great entertainment device
Source: The Verge English
Samsung isn’t pushing any productivity features here: it doesn’t come with a stylus, there’s no keyboard case available for it, and it doesn’t have Samsung’s DeX desktop software mode. It doesn’t even have Samsung’s dumber-than-average Bixby voice assistant. (The Google Assistant is available and works just like on any other device.) Instead of spending time and resources developing features most people won’t use, Samsung focused on what matters here: putting the best speakers and perhaps the best display you can get in a tablet at this price point.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) review – a worthy little brother to the S7
Source: Laptop Media English
While the battery is smaller than the one on the Tab S7, the processor is more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 865+ that is found in the S7, meaning that the battery can last you a whole day, which is great. The performance of the tablet with the Snapdragon 662 is great for general usability, though the mid-range characteristics of the SoC do show themselves quite quickly when multitasking and using multiple apps at the same time.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 review
Source: Tom's Guide English
I've wanted Samsung to field a tablet like the Galaxy Tab A7 for years. Apple's dominance in the tablet world has made the iPad the de-facto choice, and that's been boring, to say the least. The Tab A7 is priced at $100 less than the iPad but has a seriously strong set of features, including facial recognition (which the iPad lacks).

70% Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 review: Budget tablet done right
Source: Gadgets Now English
Available at a starting price of Rs 16,999, the Galaxy Tab A7 is easily a complete value-for-money device. You get a good package of essential specs from a reliable brand to satisfy your everyday needs. Unless you want an iPad. If you are fine with a tablet which isn’t an iPad and don’t want to spend too much, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 will be a good bet.

76% Galaxy Tab A7 review: You get what you pay for
Source: Engadget English
The Galaxy Tab A7 is exactly what you’d expect for the price. Its 10-inch LCD screen is dim with narrow viewing angles, a departure from the gorgeous displays we’ve come to expect from Samsung’s higher-end devices. At $230 the Tab A7 costs $80 more than the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and its main advantage is the availability of the Play Store and Google apps. If you dislike Amazon’s Fire OS, this is a good cheap Android tablet for you. If not, the Fire HD 10 offers a similar experience for a lower price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7: Affordable Android but a lackluster screen
Source: Engadget English
The Galaxy Tab A7 is currently on sale for a mere $155, making it a competitor for Amazon's Kindle Fire 10 HD. The Tab A7 feels remarkably well built for that price, but it's held back by an LCD screen that's a little too dim and doesn't have great viewing angles. Still, if you're looking for an inexpensive tablet with full access to the Play Store (and that you mostly plan to use indoors) the Tab A7 is one of your best options.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 review: Budget tablet with great stereo sound
Source: Sam Mobile English
If you’re looking for a tablet for watching videos, gaming, and browsing and want something on the cheap, then the Tab A7 fits the bill perfectly. It has mediocre display quality, performance while moving through the user interface is lacking (mainly because of the low RAM), and the software experience is basic. But the display is big and you get excellent sound through the four speakers, performance while gaming or browsing is fine, and the battery lasts long, which is everything you would need in a tablet meant for content consumption on a budget.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7: A worthy device you can use as a secondary screen
Source: Business Standard English
The Galaxy Tab A7 fares well if you consider it for basic work. It can be a good companion for media consumption, online classes, Zoom meetings, etc, even though it's not the best in business when it comes to productivity. But its impressive battery life with fast-charging support and decent performance makes it a worthy option if you don't plan to spend too much and want the latest Android tablet to use as a secondary screen.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Review

Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7, one of the more affordable Android tablets in Samsung’s fall 2020 lineup. The Tab A7 shares many specs with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite we reviewed earlier, but it lacks the S Pen support. It has a 10.4” TFT display and runs Android 10 with One UI 2.5 on the Snapdragon 662 processor. The Android tablet starts at $229 and has 2D facial recognition, quad stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos software, a microSD card slot and a headphone jack.

80% Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab A7 is everything you need for your child’s online classes
Source: The Indian Express English
Even though the Galaxy Tab A7 is marketed as a multimedia tablet, it can be a terrific device for everyday work, too. In my case, I paired a Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard to the Tab A7 and used the tablet for writing stories and attended most product launch briefings. I won’t say this tablet can replace a computer, but if your child’s purpose is limited to attending online classes or writing assignments on Google Doc, the Galaxy Tab A7 fits the bill. And yes, the tablet can be used by any member in the family for consuming multimedia content, thanks to a 10.4-inch screen and the quad speakers. After all, the Galaxy Tab A7 is not restricted just for educational purposes. I think that’s the purpose behind the Galaxy Tab A7. It can be your child’s first device, or your mother’s cooking classes companion.

77% Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 (2020) Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 brings with it a good display, great sound output and a premium build. It is ideal for those looking for a content consumption device from streaming services, some gaming and light productivity work. It will also work if you need a device to attend classes online and type some notes. It has good battery life too. The camera is good enough for video calls but won't replace your smartphone for photography needs. The processor can play all the games you want and run apps from the Play Store, but high-end productivity apps can cause the device to stutter.

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 662: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.40":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

0.477 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


78.11%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
