Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 review: work on the go

Posted by

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is an Android tablet with a 10.1-inch screen and mobile network support for 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE.

The most outstanding feature of a tablet is often the big screen, and that is true for the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 as well. The 10.1-inch display is attractive to those who need to watch videos or do work that requires a large display.  

In addition, there is a big 7300mAh battery that ensures long battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 Review

In use, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 feels good in the hand, though it is all plastic.

While it shipped initially with Android Marshmallow, is is now on Android 7 Nougat. I do not have confirmation as to whether it will get Android Oreo.

With just 2GB of RAM, multitasking is limited and apps regularly close in the background if you open more than a handful. However, most tablet users are not app jugglers. If you stick to a few apps, you will enjoy smooth performance.

This is one of those devices I call a “compromise device”. And I mean that in a good sense. What I mean is that it doesnt fail or suck in any one field, yet it does not excel in any either. Everything is middle-of-the-road.

That means it is a reliable tool. It gets the job done witbout any pizzazz or fanfare.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is still a very valid option if you are shopping for a large screen tablet as 2018 rolls to an end.

You will find it on sale in the market for around NGN98,000. There is a version that comes with S-pen and sells for a little over NGN100,000. If you find the Wi-Fi only version, you will spend less. 

I almost always recommend the one with SIM support though. With it, you are never completely at the mercy of Wi-Fi. You can pop in a SIM card and activate mobile data for use if you ever need to.
