Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 LTE (2022) tablet review – A powerful allrounder for significantly less than $300

New edition. 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.

Samsung injects new life into its affordable Galaxy Tab A series. This begins with the 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab A8, which is the successor to the 10.4-inch Galaxy Tab A7. The largest updates lie in the processor and storage. The Galaxy Tab A8 uses the Unisoc T618 quad-core SoC, which should make it about 10% faster than the predecessor, according to the manufacturer. Instead of a maximum of 32 GB of storage, there are now also options with 64 and 128 GB of storage.

Samsung hasn't changed much in the rest of the equipment of its tablet. In principle, this should be okay, since the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 already impressed us last year with its very good price-performance ratio.

The Galaxy Tab A8 now brings the same good premises, officially starting from 229 Euros (~$259) and also being available in an LTE version. The LCD TFT continues to offer a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, and as before, there are four speakers, a 5-MP selfie camera, and an 8-MP main camera. But are those rather careful updates sufficient to also remain competitive in the mid-range tablet segment in 2022? We find out in this test.

Case - The metal case is now also available in pink

From online vendors, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 in the smallest equipment version already comes close to the 200-Euro (~$226) mark at the time of this test. However, when looking at the 10.5-inch mid-range tablet, you don't really notice this low price.

Like the Galaxy Tab A7, the Galaxy Tab A8 is housed in an elegant aluminum case that shows good workmanship and provides the tablet with a high stability. The metal surface on the back is only interrupted by a slim plastic band going across the whole width of the tablet above the 8-MP main camera. 

With a width of about 1 cm (~0.4 in), the bezels around the display are slim enough to create a good visual impression, resulting in a screen-to-body-ratio of 80% for the tablet (Galaxy Tab A7: 79%). At the same time, they also allow holding the Galaxy Tab A8 in the hands without accidentally creating inputs on the TFT display.

With a thickness of 6.9 mm (~0.27 in), the Galaxy Tab A8 is minimally slimmer than the Galaxy Tab A7. On the other hand, the size has slightly grown compared to the predecessor, increasing the image diagonal from 10.4 to 10.5 inches. In terms of the length, the Galaxy Tab A8 measures 0.8 mm (~0.03 in) more than the Galaxy Tab A7, and the width has increased by 4.5 mm (~0.18 in). The weight also has increased slightly from 460 grams (~16.2 oz) to 477 grams (~16.8 oz) in the WiFi version. The LTE version that we are testing brings 508 grams (~17.9 oz) to the scale.

Samsung offers the Galaxy Tab A8 in the colors dark gray, silver, and pink.

Equipment - Up to 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage in the Galaxy Tab A8

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is available in a WiFi and an LTE version. In the smallest model with 32 GB of storage, the WiFi version of the 10.5-in tablet officially costs 229 Euros (~$259), and the LTE version, 279 Euros (~$316). Samsung only offers the tablet with 32 GB of storage on its web store, and those who want to purchase it with 64 or 128 GB of storage have to get it from other online vendors. While the two larger storage models are equipped with 4 GB of RAM, the 32-GB model only has 3 GB of RAM.

In our 32-GB test unit, the remaining available storage doesn't turn out very large with barely 18 GB. However, you can expand the storage by using a microSD card up to 1 TB. In addition to media data, you can also transfer app data to the card.

Fortunately, the Galaxy Tab 8 also offers the 3.5-mm audio port of the predecessor and its four speakers with Dolby Atmos support. As before, the USB-C port also operates at USB-2.0 speed and supports USB OTG.

microSD Card Reader

The speed of the microSD card reader is fast and above average for this tablet price class, significantly surpassing the comparison devices in the copy test. Using our Angelbird AV Pro V60 reference storage card, the Galaxy Tab A8 also achieves good values in sequential reading and writing.

Software - Android 11 and One UI 3.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8

The Galaxy Tab A8 uses Android 11 with version 3.1 of Samsung's One UI user interface. At the time of our test (mid-February 2022), the Android security patches are on the level of January 1st, so still quite current. 

Due to its DRM Widevine L1 certification, the Galaxy Tab A8 is also able to reproduce streams in HD quality. The Galaxy Tab A8 can also be used as a family tablet. One UI allows you to setup several users, and with Samsung Kids, you also get a child mode with correspondingly adjusted contents.

In addition to the Google and Samsung apps, Microsoft Office, OneDrive, and Outlook are also preinstalled on the tablet. They are accompanied by Netflix and Spotify as additional third-party apps. Except for OneDrive, all the software additions can be uninstalled. OneDrive can only be deactivated, so it will continue to take up around 170 MB of the spare internal storage. 

Communication and GNSS - Fast WLAN but inaccurate GPS

The Galaxy Tab A8 communicates wirelessly using Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 5. In the LTE version, there is an additional communication module that also supports 15 LTE bands in addition to 2G and 3G. At 0.92 W/kg, the SAR value is relatively low.

In the WiFi network, the Galaxy Tab A8 achieves solid transfer rates that are approximately at the level of those of the Blackview Tab 10 and the Teclast T40 Plus. However, the tablet is not faster than its Galaxy Tab A7 predecessor. Since we measured the WLAN speed of the Samsung tablets using our new Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router (instead of the Netgear Nighthawk AX12 that we used before), the results are depicted in a separate bar chart.

The Galaxy Tab A8 determines its current location using the GPS (L1), Glonass (L1), Galileo (E1), and Beidou (B1) satellite navigation systems. However, this worked rather poorly in our test. It took quite a long time indoors and outdoors, until the tablet showed a location, which was also not very accurate either. This means that the Galaxy Tab A8 is only suited for navigation to a very limited extent, which we had to find out on our mandatory bike tour. The tablet did not succeed in creating a satfix on the about 10-km (~6.2 miles) long bike ride – the predecessor was much more successful here.

Cameras - A good selfie camera but mediocre main camera

Picture taken with the main camera
Picture taken with the main camera

The camera equipment of the Galaxy Tab A8 did not change compared to the Galaxy Tab A7. The selfie camera has a 5-MP resolution and strikes a good figure during video chats under good light conditions. The back houses an 8-MP camera with autofocus but without any additional photography aids such as an image stabilizer or flash.

Overall, we like the selfie camera much better than the 8-MP main camera, which also depends on good illumination in order to succeed in taking fairly acceptable recordings. The colors are slightly too saturated, even though this doesn't look too bad overall. With the aggressive sharpening, fine image details are simply smoothed out, making some pictures look as if you had used a blurry filter. The 8-MP camera is also completely overtaxed by weak light conditions. In contrast, the example of the Teclast T40 Plus shows that an affordable tablet and a good camera aren't mutually exclusive.

We also take a detailed look at the main camera of the Galaxy Tab A8 under controlled lab conditions. Under optimal light conditions (top color chart), the camera reproduces the colors relatively accurately, being particularly successful with light and dark gray tones. Under weak light conditions (bottom color chart at 1 Lux), accuracy is completely missing, and the test chart that was reproduced fairly detailed before is now not recognizable at all anymore.

Accessories and Warranty - Only a 7.8-Watt charger included

Samsung includes a 7.8-Watt charger, a USB cable (Type A to C), a SIM tool, a quick-start manual, and a warranty leaflet with its tablet.

As an optional accessory, Samsung also offers 15-Watt charger, which costs around 25 Euros (~$28).

There is a 24-month warranty on the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8.

Input Devices and Operation - Fast enough for everyday tasks

Even though the Unisoc T618 and 3 GB of RAM don't turn the Galaxy Tab A8 into a rocket, they make sure that operation runs to a large extent smoothly and that the tablet responds quickly to inputs. Things only turn a little sluggish right after starting the system, since not all the modules are loaded, but this is completed after about 15 seconds.

However, it is noticeable during operation that the tablet only contains eMMC flash storage and the amount of RAM is limited. Apps can take some time to load and switching between several open apps can be slightly delayed at times.

The tablet does not offer a fingerprint sensor. You can identify yourself biometrically using 2D face scanning. In sufficiently bright light conditions, face recognition succeeds quickly and without any problems.

Display - An average TFT LCD

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

In the minimally larger Galaxy Tab A8, Samsung uses a different display than in the Galaxy Tab A7. While this continues to be a TFT LCD, it now has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels instead of 2000 x 1200 pixels before.

At an average of 345.6 cd/m², the TFT LCD is slightly brighter than that of the predecessor, which offered 337.1 cd/m² on average. In the APL50 measurement with evenly distributed bright and dark image areas, the Galaxy Tab A8 reaches a maximum of 368 cd/m², which increases up to 372 cd/m² when the brightness sensor is deactivated. We measure a high, above average value of 9.18 cd/m² at the lowest brightness level.

Since the display does not use pulse width modulation to control the brightness, it is also suited without any limitations for sensitive users.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Aside from the minimally increased brightness, the change to a new display did not bring any advantages to the Samsung tablet. Due to the black value of 0.61 cd/m², which significantly too high, the Galaxy Tab A8 only reaches a mediocre contrast ratio of 608:1, causing colors to appear a bit pale. Other image parameters such as the color temperature and accuracy of the color and grayscale reproduction are also worse than those of the predecessor.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Due to its relatively low brightness reserves, the Galaxy Tab A8 is not very well-suited for outdoor usage. So if you have to use it outdoors, you should seek a place that is as shady as possible.

In terms of the viewing angle stability, the TFT LCD basically does well, allowing you to still recognize the image content without any trouble even from very steep viewing angles. However, in everyday operation you should always try to keep the tablet perpendicular to your viewing angle, since otherwise it quickly becomes darker.

Performance - As promised, 10% higher than in the Galaxy Tab A7

The Unisoc T618 of the Galaxy Tab A8 is an older SoC from 2019 and is also used in the Teclast T40 Plus, for example. In combination with the 3 GB of RAM (4 GB starting with the 64 GB storage model), the Samsung tablet is able to display simple and everyday applications such as Chrome or YouTube smoothly. In the quad-core SoC, the ARM Mali G52 MP2 handles the graphics computations.

The test shows that the Galaxy Tab A8 runs about 10% faster than the Galaxy Tab A7 as promised by Samsung. However, the computing performance does not reach that of the Mediatek Helio G90T that runs in the Lenovo Yoga Tab 11. Interestingly, the Galaxy Tab A8 also loses in the SoC competition against the Teclast P40 Plus. Although both tablets use the same processor, it always runs at a slightly reduced speed in the Galaxy Tab A8. The Teclast P40 Plus always runs a tad faster in the synthetic benchmarks as well as the browser benchmarks.

Samsung does not give any information on the storage type, but the data transfer rates lead us to think that it is eMMC flash storage. This does a decent job in the Galaxy Tab A8, and most other tablets of this price class don't run any faster either.

Games - 30 FPS also with current games

The slightly higher performance of the Galaxy Tab A8 compared to the Galaxy Tab A7 becomes particularly noticeable when playing games. Graphically demanding games usually only run smoothly in the predecessor if you lower the graphics details. In contrast, with the Galaxy Tab A8 you can also play PUBG Mobile in the HD preset, for example, which was not possible with the Galaxy Tab A7. The frame rates are also slightly higher. Aside from some small outliers in the test with PUBG Mobile and Armajet, our second game, the frame rates remain almost constant at 30 FPS.

We measure the frame rates using the Gamebench tool.

Emissions - The full performance is always available

Temperature

During operation, the Galaxy Tab A8 warms up to a maximum of 38.5 °C (101 °F), which is hardly any warmer than skin temperature. In addition, the temperature hot spot lies at the left top corner of the display, which is an area that you hardly ever touch when holding the tablet in the hands.

Internally, the Unisoc T618 keeps its temperatures well under control, since even under constant load, we were unable to get the Galaxy Tab A8 to start throttling. This means that the tablet is always able to use its full performance.

Speakers

The four speakers of the Galaxy Tab A8 are placed two each at the short sides. This means that the sound will always come from two sides, regardless of whether you hold the tablet in landscape or portrait format.

The speaker quartet produces a powerful sound that is distinguished by very balanced mids and highs. As expected, only the bass tones are rare. The sound quality is very good for this price class.
