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.
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.

Source: Laptop Mag English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 (reviewed at $229) is a mid-range tablet that, at first, did not make the best first impression with its ho-hum chassis design and dim display.

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.

Comment

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.

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.

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.


79.74%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
