Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5-inch Tablet 2018 Review

Share Our Post

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5-inch 2018 a step up from the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1-inch. Not only does it come with a bigger display, it has a faster processor, more memory, better front facing camera, bigger expandable storage support via microSD and better battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5

The mid-range Samsung Galaxy Tab A with 10.5-inch display is a crowd pleaser. The tablet comes with a Full HD resolution, that’s 1920 x 1200 pixel display at 10.5-inch resolution with 16:10 aspect ratio. Powered by an Octa-Core processor clocking in at 1.8GHz, together with 3GB of RAM memory and 32GB of ROM storage, it’s enough to take on any tasks you can throw at it.

But it doesn’t stop there, what impresses us most is the quad firing 3D surround speakers with Dolby Atmos support tuned by AKG. It knows which way up you are holding the device and set the surround accordingly. And, if you are one to use your tablet during your commute to watch your favourite TV shows, you won’t be disappointed either. Not only is the tablet long lasting, up to 15 hours of video playback per charge, it also supports up to 400GB of expandable memory. Fast charging is supported to top it back up in a mere 3.5 hours.

Multitask like a pro


If you must cache every episode of Game of Thrones from every seasons in Full HD, simply get a 400GB MicroSD card from your favourite retailer to do the job. Even if you do not intend to use additional storage, the onboard memory is already sufficient for 6 hours of HD video.

Like the voice service Alexa from Amazon and Amazon’s Fire HD tablets that support hands free mode and show mode, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A uses Bixby Voice for voice commands and smart home controls and Bixby Vision to offer real time information when used in conjunction with the camera. The latter offers location information, assist with shopping and live translation of signs and menus.

Bixby At Your Command

The tablet is available in black or grey. The grey here is more silver than dark grey. To complete the show mode, consider the optional charging station called the POGO charging stand. This turns the tablet into a Daily Board display for the family.
