What customers say about "Key Specs"
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • This tablet is a very good deal and works well. only thing I could say bad is it only has 16GB of storage but that's probably why such a good deal but u can always add a Mini SD in these to add more. I put a 32GB one in it.
  • I love the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1. I put my other one in a safe place. So safe I can't find it. The new tab A has a more elongated screen. I think it's a good thing for watching videos

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • Gets VERY SLOW after 4 months of my use (note that i don't install much apps, only use it for social media and Netflix).
  • I have experienced a few lags but I think that's us getting to understand each other, outside of that, really fast processing
  • I'm impressed how fast the processor is on this tablet compared to my old tablet. I've had this tablet for almost 2 months, use it everyday, and have not encountered any problems with it.
  • Very fast processor, great price and easily syncs with my Samsung products.
  • This processor Exynoss has a excellent performance, great tablet, fast and beutifull display.
Samsung Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) 9.6 Inch Tablet
  • Fast processor. Great for streaming movies, awesome camera.
  • It is a great tab with good processor and ram also light weight.
  • It's a well built device very smooth the screen is impressive does have a quad-core processor which is fantastic.
  • Pretty low quality, many features that the processor nor the resolution can handle.
  • The tablet is not the best for the money. My suggestion is - choose a tablet with HD screen and quad qore processor with at least 2 gb RAM.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • One of the things the make me very happy is the long battery life.
  • My old tablet gave out completely so I purchased this tablet because it was similar. I am happy with it especially because the battery life is much longer and it is faster.
  • Two bottom firing speakers only (easily covered by hands when holding in landscape mode).
  • The charger gets dangerously hot. I only used twice and stopped using after I discovered there was an issue.
  • The Operating System should be upgradeable. You shouldn't have to purchase a new piece of hardware in order to take advantage of the Android operating systems available.
Samsung Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) 9.6 Inch Tablet
  • Works flawlessly. Very good battery life. Bright screen.
  • Charging port on the top makes it easy to use while charging.
  • It works great with my Bluetooth speaker for playing my music.
  • We begin to wath a movie with the battery at 77% almost 1.5 hours later when the movie end the baterry was at 66%.
  • Speakers are very quiet. Needs headphones or an external to watch movies.
  • Feels heavy in my hands, have to balance in order to be comfortable. Hard to find a suitable case for it.
