What experts liked

The $199.99 Samsung Galaxy Tab A is an 8-inch slate with decent specs and some software features you won't find on similarly priced competitors. And unlike Amazon's Fire tablets, you get unfettered access to the Google Play app store. That makes the Tab A a solid budget-friendly option for media consumption and Android gaming,

The Kids Home area can also create a safe environment for children and offers parents the opportunity to monitor the time that their kids spend on the tablet.
- Notebook Check
Affordably priced and offers many premium app perks for free. Its microSD slot accommodates cards up to 128GB. A simple tablet worth picking up for its low price, and its valuable extras sweeten the deal even more.
- CNET
Offers up incredible value, especially for those just looking to catch up on some emails, stream Netflix or browse the web. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A range is one we can fully recommend as one of the finest budget tablets around as the performance and quality puts similar tablets to shame.

What experts didn't like

When it comes to the camera, the Tab A's 8-megapixel rear shooter is underwhelming in most circumstances (like most tablet cameras, especially at this price). While daytime photos are passable, our low-light photos were both grainy and blurry.
- PC Magazine
Neither a fingerprint sensor nor a status LED are available; not even always-on functionality.
- Notebook Check
The plastic construction feels cheap, and the single speaker provides weak audio. The text often appears pixelated.
- CNET
You're certainly getting a cheap tablet here, so you won't be zipping through more demanding apps with the same kinds of speeds as more luxurious devices.
