Android version and market relevance

In July 2019 was announced tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019). It is located in a series of Galaxy Tab A among many other tablets Samsung.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the tablet is launched, so to speak, out of the box. And Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) is working on Android 9 Pie, which by the way is not so bad, as for the tablet in 2019 release. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) is updated to the version of 11.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the tablet has support for high-speed mobile networks. This version supports GSM/HSPA/LTE networks and works with only one SIM card. We advise you to look at android-tablets with two sim-cards.

Screen, body and battery

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) screen is made using the TFT technology and has a diagonal of 8 inches. Such a medium size main touchscreen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 8 mm. Also inside the case is a 5 100 mAh battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

The tablet has a good main camera at  megapixels. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera got its  MP.

Processor and Internal Memory

Tablet received 4-core processor Snapdragon 429. If you want to assess the speed of the tablet and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) received 2 GB of RAM.

Only one version of the built-in memory in the tablet is on the market — 32 GB and expand the memory can only be using memory cards. Supported memory cards microSDXC.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019): buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a tablet with best camera, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a tablet with a huge touchscreen, then this is not the model you are looking for.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) will begin in July 2019 at a price of $160. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Affordable tablets from $100 to $200”, you can choose any tablet for the same money.

We recommend buying a new tablet only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touchscreen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
