The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1-inch is a 2016 Android tablet that received praise for its sturdy design, bright Full-HD display, and expandable memory. Reviewers marveled at the software experience offered by Google’s up-to-date Android version 6.0 Marshmallow, which comes pre-installed. Thanks to Samsung’s Exynos 7870 Octa-core CPU and 2GB of RAM, everyday performance is remarkable, and even gamers expressed their satisfaction. On the flip side, a good number of customers felt a little shortchanged by the 16GB internal storage, which only leaves about 10GB for free use. Weak cameras and poor sound quality also significantly underwhelmed an otherwise stellar device. The Galaxy Tab A 10/1 is a decent choice for anyone looking for a large Android tablet, at a friendly price.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) is a compelling package. No other other 10-inch tablet with Android 6, LTE and Full-HD on the market offers more for less. If the performance is up to par as well is the subject of our review.

    The Galaxy Tab A 10.1-inch fits nicely into Samsung's lineup -- just under the higher-priced and higher-specced Galaxy Tab S2 and Windows-based Galaxy TabPro S. It brings increased features and value to its Tab A line. The specs are not mindblowing, but they are a significant improvement over last year's models.
