Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2022

81% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 LTE (2022) tablet review – A powerful allrounder for significantly less than $300 | Notebookcheck
Samsung updates one of its most popular tablets: The Galaxy Tab A8 follows the Galaxy Tab A7, officially starting from 229 Euros (~$259) and scores with an extensive equipment list as already the predecessor before. Our test shows whether a purchase of the 10.5-inch tablet is worthwhile.
80% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is another solid budget effort from the king of Android tablets. Its premium design and loud, clear sound are unusually accomplished for a very affordable price - if 32GB is enough storage for you that is. However, the tablet’s TFT display is disappointingly flat and washed out, compromising its potential as an affordable media player. The lack of reliable biometric authentication is another downer but not essential and the Tab A8 has a surprisingly excellent sound system. Performance, while far from spectacular, is perfectly adequate for a tablet of this price, and battery life is very good. It’ll take you an age to get back up to 100% from empty with the bundled charger, but that’s not such a pressing issue in the tablet world.

Review – Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 (2022): Rather reasonably priced
Source: NLT English
And so I want to ask – who should buy this Samsung Galaxy Tab A8? I think it’s mostly suitable for simple usages like email, social media browsing, YouTube, or Netflix – something along those lines. Getting this tablet for kids to attend online classes is also a very good choice. At the price of RM999, I think it’s actually fairly priced. The screen could definitely be better, but overall I think it’s a decent product. Just gotta manage your expectations when it comes to tablet prices as it is very different compared to phone prices.

74% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 Review – Big Tablet, Awesome Value
Source: Hitech Century English
While more powerful tablets are available in Samsung’s line-up like the new Galaxy Tab S8, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 makes for an affordable tablet for enjoying media on the go. It makes some modest concessions for cost but its core strengths, namely a large display, great speakers and excellent battery life remain intact along with its modest price tag. For those looking for a more compact slate, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is a more viable option and you can check out our Galaxy Tab A7 Lite review here.

74% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 Review – Multimedia Simplicity
Source: Pokde English
At RM999, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is certainly a tablet that focuses on value. It’s not a high end performer but it should be more than adequate for productivity, web surfing, and multimedia entertainment. It has its fair share of drawbacks, such as the reflective screen and low RAM but the pros certainly outshine it enough for it to be an enticing offer. At the end of our Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 review, I award this tablet with our Silver Pokdeward.

80% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 review: An Android tablet for regular people
Source: The Indian Express English
While the Galaxy Tab A8 won’t surprise you, it’s a great multimedia tablet at the end of the day. The tablet is best to be used to watch movies, read books, browse the web or attend online classes. If you are considering buying a tablet for your kid or ageing parents, the Galaxy Tab A8 makes a lot of sense. At Rs 17,999, the Galaxy Tab A8 is way more affordable than the base iPad, but it’s limited to watching movies, browsing and reading books. But I assure you that you are not getting a raw deal.

90% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 review: Budget streaming star
Source: Android Authority English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 isn’t a massive upgrade over its already great predecessor, but it didn’t need to be. This is a well-built tablet that performs admirably, and is shaped just right for media streaming. The expandable storage also means you should have more than enough room for the apps, photos, and games you need most. It would be nice to see a longer commitment to Android version updates, but the two Android version commitment aligns with other affordable Android tablets, and the four years of security is beyond any competition not made by Apple. Granted, the cameras are nothing special, but we can’t imagine anyone relying on the Galaxy Tab A8 as a crucial part of their photography toolbox anyway. Likewise, you may not want to dive into intense gaming with the Unisoc Tiger T618 processor, but acing your daily Wordle will be no problem at all. Equally suitable as a starter tablet for kids or a media slate for the whole family, if you’ve been waiting to try an Android tablet and hoping for a solid, affordable option, this is it.

77% Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 Review: Good Enough in 2022?
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is a good iterative update over the Tab A7. While the latter was the best overall tablet in its price range last year, history hasn’t repeated itself this time around. Although Samsung still has an upper hand when it comes to software, brand recognition, and global availability, other Android tablet makers have started to catch up. So, it needs to bring some meaningful upgrades with the Tab A9 if it wants to stay relevant in the midrange tablet segment. That being said, there are not that many options if you look for midrange tablets in Nepal. If you have the extra cash, you can always go with the Xiaomi Pad 5, which is the undisputed winner in this product category. But if you are on a tight budget and want LTE connectivity, Galaxy Tab A8 is the way to go for now.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) Specifications, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) is a decent mid-range tablet that costs around $260 (Rs 19,499). You are getting a tall aspect 10.5-inches TFT panel display for the primary specs that provide immersive space for your task. In contrast, the tablet also offers decent pixel density with FHD resolution on top. As for the process, you are getting a pretty standard Unisoc Tiger T618 chipset that might not have extraordinary processing powers, but it seamlessly manages the multitasking factors precisely. As for the software, the end will receive Android 11 based One UI 3.0 that works great with your daily task and offers customization features. On the other hand, the camera end only brings an 8MP primary and 5MP selfie camera at your service. With this setup, you can click decent photos and 1080p videos without any problem. In terms of internal storage, this tablet offers storage from 32GB to 128GB, accompanying 3GB to 4GB RAM support. As for the battery end, Galaxy Tab A8 renders a Li-Po 7040 mAh that equips alongside a 15W fast charging speed.

ARM Mali-G52 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node.

T618: Entry level octa core SoC with two fast ARM Cortex A75 cores at up to 2 GHz and six power efficient ARM Cortex A55 cores at up to 2 GHz. The SoC furthermore includes a LTE modem (TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TDSCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM), an ARM Mali G52MP2 GPU and a tri core ISP. The chip is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm FinFET.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.50":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.508 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.


75.14%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
