Sam­sung Gal­axy Tab A

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

A COM­PACT LIT­TLE TABLET.

MEA­SUR­ING IT AT 7 inches, the Sam­sung Gal­axy Tab A is the per­fect size for easy on-the-go use.

The tablet has a 1,200 x 800 res­o­lu­tion touch­screen, 1.3GHz CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of stor­age. It runs the older but still de­cent An­droid Lol­lipop (5.1.1) with Sam­sung’s own lay­out over the top.

It mea­sures in at a com­pact 10.9 x 18.7 x 0.87cm and weighs 285 grams. Sam­sung has fit­ted the Tab A with a large 4,000mAh bat­tery, which can han­dle around 9 hours of video or, in our test­ing, 13.5 hours read­ing an ebook with the screen bright­ness down low.

The Tab A screen is ac­tu­ally quite good, though not up to e-ink stan­dards for read­ing in bright lo­ca­tions. It’s also a pretty de­cent lit­tle tablet, and in­cludes Wi-Fi, Blue­tooth, front and rear cam­eras, mi­croSD card slot and GPS. Shop around for the best price, but the Tab A costs around the same as a sec­ond tier e-reader with screen light.
