It does not have 16 GB of memory!

16GB internal memory size, expandable with a microSD card (sold separately) up to 200GB, gives you plenty of space to store your music, photos, movies, and more MEMORY and STORAGE are DIFFERENT THINGS.

Works well, but... forget about ever getting an Android OS update

I also have owned a number of iPads and this was my first android tablet. This one works well enough. I ran out of memory very quickly and had to install a micro SD memory card. The display is crisp and the colours are great. There are two extra buttons at one end that drive me crazy as I am always pressing them by mistake. My biggest gripe? I bought this tab in Feb 2017 and have yet to see any kind of android software update from Samsung. I am beginning to believe that Samsung doesn't do updates on any models other than their top line phones. A new version of Android was out when I bought it, and I just assumed Samsung would support this tab and push out an update to the latest Android version. I really doubt they will update this now. If I had known they didn't support their tablets, I would have bought the cheapest Android tablet out there, knowing it would never be updated. In Contrast, I have an Apple Ipad Air and the iOS has been updated numerous times. It started at iOS 8 and is now on iOS 10, with many security updates along the way. Do I think this Samsung Tab is secure? I doubt it. Samsung has blown the opportunity for me to ever buy another tablet (OR ANYTHING ELSE) from them as they just don't support their hardware. My next tab will be another Apple iPad, at least Apple supports their hardware.

Got a dud!

Bought this right after Christmas. It broke down after not even 2 months of use. Brought it in and they said it couldn't be exchanged unless it's within 30 days. It was sent in for repair and Samsung is waiting for a replacement part to come in. Been waiting for close to a month and got an update last week that the part won't be available until March 22nd which means about another couple of weeks before it's repaired and sent back to my local Best Buy store. This is an important work tool of mine and it's very frustrating!

Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet

So far so good! The tablet was purchased in order that I wouldn't have to travel with my laptop computer. Still getting used to using it but am pleased with the size and ease of use.

Happy with Purchase

I bought this device about 2 months ago on sale. As this is my first tablet I cannot compare it to other tablets but for the basics (browsing, reading e-mails, and watching a few videos) it meets my needs.

Great Tablet

We purchased this tablet to replace a small Acer laptop. This is a perfect size for travel and the resolution is great. Too bad there is not a USB port besides the charge port as the convenience of USB is lost without an adapter. The internal memory is low and once the system gets what it wants, there is not much left for the user. A separate SD card is required if you want to store any movies or photos on this. Very happy with the purchase. It arrived within days of ordering it - even during the busy Christmas/Boxing day sales.

Very Happy

Bought this for my mother. It's super quick and with the large screen comes a large keyboard which she loves. Easy to use and set up. Good colour and quality. She found it a little hard to hold onto so have ordered her a case.

Very frustrating, do not recommend this product.

Not impressed at all with this product. Continuously powered off on it's on in the middle of tasks. Returned it after one day and inquired about a replacement. I was told another customer had the same problem with two separate Galaxy Tab A 10.1 tablets. I did not purchase a replacement after hearing that and will be going with a different brand. I do not recommend this product. Very frustrating!

I am very satisfied with this tablet. So far it is able to do all of what I want. I have had it for three weeks.

Awesome tablet

This is only my 2nd tablet which is a big upgrade from my aging outdated Playbook. I think it's awesome. It has a very bright and high resolution display. Battery is long lasting. I don't play any cpu intensive games, but simple games and browsing is responsive. It came with Marshmallow but I'm sure it will soon be upgradeable to Noughat. Honestly, I can't put it down. I don't need to start up my pc as much. It's a little heavier than I expected but I use a stand whenever I'm at a table. I got it on boxing day sale so happy with the price too. Overall, very happy with it.

Nice gift, but...

The screen is very clear, the touch is very responsive, no lag when swiping, applications load fast, and good battery life; however, after a month of casual use the charging port stopped working so I could no longer power on the device. Returned and will try getting another when it's back in stock.

as expected

All love. Quibble - wish the Back and Documents buttons on the front bottom were illuminated or in contrasting font - I am always fumbling around for these. Maybe will be better once my case arrives?

P.O.S Looks like a great tablet if I could actually use it. Going back today for third attempt at one that doesn't turn itself off randomly

Great tablet for first time owner

Bought this tablet for my 8yr old, easy for her to use, reliable and fairly robust. Would recommend buying a case if giving this to a child though

A very good tablet

Had to replace my old tablet and chose the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because of its price and reviews. Have used it for about one month and so far have not been disappointed. It does all that I expected it to do. It is a bit slippery so you would do well to purchase a case for it.

Fantastic Tablet

I love this tablet. It has replaced 2 Acer Tablets and an older Samsung Tablet that I have purchased also from Best Buy! I would definitely recommend this Tablet!

Amazing Tablet!

I bought this to accompany 2 other tablets: 1) Acer Ionia One 10, 2) Samsung Galaxy Tab E Now the Samsung Galaxy Tab A surpasses the Galaxy E in everything specs wise. It is so much faster than the E and the specs even as that it will run for 3 hours longer than the E on a charge. I do a lot of travelling so I need my battery power and video capability. I am delighted with this purchase!

Fantastic

Have trusted Samsung for 10 years now. Never disappointed! The crisp image this Tab A produces is beyond words. Battery life is impressive too! Samsung priced this product right. Good job!

Excellent

This is an excellent tablet. I purchased the s2 tablet but returned it as I preferred the 16:9 orientation of this tablet. Games, movies, web pages look far superior in this format. I am actually shocked at how well this tablet performs. Absolutely zero lag and everything runs perfectly. The battery life is insane at 7100! The only downside is 16gb of ram but I added a 128gb microSD card so all is good. I highly recommend this tablet if you are looking for a solid performer at a reasonable price.

Love it

I admit my previous device was very low end and not comparable so this probably adds to how impressed I am with this Samsung product. Battery life is great! I find myself charging it every 3 days. Touch screen is very accurate and responsive. Great WiFi connectivity.

Solid

Great tablet, great size. I bought the 64GB Samsung EVO card to go with it. Everything works like a charm. You do have to be careful with the apps though, not all of them are tablet compatible.. but for the most part, I use Google Apps for Business and it works nicely!

Another great Samsung Tablet

I purchased this tablet to replace our aging I-Pad. Just on the specs alone , we are ahead. It was a breeze to set up and there were no bloatware issues to deal with. It is blazingly fast and can perform tasks on 2 different windows at the same time. I thought that this split screen feature was a dumb idea until I really started to use it. Great idea! I cannot really compare it's performance to a current I-Pad but for what we use it for, it's perfect. It is a bit lighter than the I-Pad and battery life is right up there. Overall we are very happy with our purchase and the Best Buy online experience was great.

Terrible tablet

I am not someone who ever writes reviews, however I feel compelled to warn you. Dont waste your time or money on this tablet. I bought 2 for my kids. There is so much bloatware that there is literally no room for you to install any apps on your own. Yes, you can expand memory, however there is no way to download directly to SD card. Have to download and transfer afterwards which is very difficult given that there is often not enough memory remaining to download it in the 1st place. I cannot understand why samsung has so much bloatware. I will never buy another samsung and regret wasting my money this. Learn from my mistake.

Good value for money

All round a good tablet for the money. Screen is sharp and colours are good. I'm not a gamer but for browsing, email and movies or youtube this is a great tablet. Battery life is superb -- lasts 2-3 days. I also like the portrait mode. Be sure to get a micro SD card as internal storage is minimal.
