Faulty build.

This tablet is highly susceptible to internal humidity--causing corrosion. This fault is NOT covered under warranty. Definitely NOT worth the money.

  • from Toronto, ON

Galaxy Tab A

Amazing Value for Money. Do not buy S tablets. They are over priced. But this A Tablet.

  • from Burnaby, BC

not worth any amount of money

Bought a Tab A Sat July28 / 2018 from Best BUY . It is worthless junk to me . Does not function consistancely . Going to return it for a new one , or a refund No doubt Best Buy will put up a fight . If so will consult with my lawyer !

Full malfunction - TWICE

I've owned this exact product twice. It worked fine both times, I mostly used it for media consumption and some web browsing, but it, unfortunately, stopped working entirely twice. First time it broke, I was on vacation and let my mom use it. She was having issues with Wi-Fi, the adapter wouldn't even turn on so I restarted it by holding down the power button. The animation played, but it didn't turn back on afterwards. The second time it broke was for the exact same reason; the Wi-Fi was not great and I restarted it with the same results - animation and gone, which I was sort of considering might happen. Some will say "But you already had this happen once, you shouldn't have done it again!", but I don't think technology should be trial and error. They were very nice to replace it for free the first time, but I'm not giving this tablet a second, second chance. I'm hoping for a refund or at *least* store credit, but this shouldn't happen on a product at any price point. If you want to risk it, go ahead but, if yours does the same, don't say I haven't told you so.

Tablet is good, no further updates after purchase, charging cord is garbage

I had the tablet for 6 months now and have never received any further updates to the OS since. It is still only running 7.0 even though other samsung tablets have received the 7.1. When I contacted samsung, they were very evasive in their response and would not say that updates would be available for this tablet Then from only plugging and unplugging the unit to charge it, the charging cord has separated at the seam. Neither Best Buy or Samsung will acknowledge that this is a manufacturer flaw and no one will replace it. Best Buy wants you to buy very expensive extra warranty (more than the cost of a replacement tablet) and Samsung won't honor warranty if there is any physical damage (even if the damage is from poor workmanship) A cord that does not stand up to normal use and separates after only months? The tablet itself works fine, fast, will hold a charge for many days (depending on use). Just not happy that the day I bought it had the only version of OS that I will ever get on this device and that the cord was garbage and will cost me more money, making the sale price I got for the tablet not really worth it now. Consider a more reputable brand before buying.

  • from Sherbrooke Que.

Had this tablet for a year and a half...

This has been a great tablet for the occasional online user. I use it all the time for email, watching movies and surfing the web. The only drawback is the battery it doesn't last as long as I would like. All and all great screen and clarity.

  • from Vaudreuil, QC

Great buy

I bought this tablet a few weeks ago. I like it. it responds easily to my needs. really easy to use. You can easily install your favorite application.

  • from London, ON

Very Good

This is an excellent budget tablet. It met all of my fundemental requirements (good hd screen, reasonable specs, good battery, etc...) For the price, this is likely the best tablet you can get. Cons: - in hind sight, i would have purchased the s pen version of this tablet online - Very long charge times. (Great battery life makes up for it) - 16GB of storage is definitely inadequate. While you can transfer things to an SD card which alleviates many issues, its still flawed. A bump to 32GB would have made things less cumbersome and have less micro managing. - the aspect ratio is not ideal. I would have much prefered the iPad/Tab S3 ratio. Overall its a very good tablet. Id have no hesitation recommending it.

  • from Sherbrooke, QC

Very good but is not compatible with some microSD cards

Fast, good display, good power usage, but is not compatible with at least one Kingston microSD card:Gold microSD UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3, part #SDCG/32GBCR. I tried 2 brand new of those in the tablet, formatted them, and, at every restart I have the message Corrupted SD card, you have to reformat it, or the card has simply vanished. It does the same with Andoid 6.x or 7.0. Those CD cards are working perfectly in a laptop, a camera, a cell phone, even after getting those reformat messages, and even when I'am not doing the format. From other posts, the Galaxy Tab tablets seem to be very choosy aboout SD cards.

  • from Moncton, NB

Very nice device.

I bought this in September 2017 and I've been using it almost every day since. It's fast (especially the WiFi that runs on 5Ghz 802.11ac). Graphics are smooth, fast, and the brightness goes very high. The resolution makes displaying large electronic schematics very easy to trace out without squinting. Get a Fintie Bluetooth keyboard case, and you've got a very nice "laptop". It's a bit on the weighty side but that has a reassuring quality built feeling. Best feature of all is that it's not an Apple device ;).

  • from Toronto, ON

Not a a 6.0

I went and purchased this unit only because I need an Android 6.0 but it came with a 7.0

  • from Val-d'Or, QC

Very Good

Great product, very simple to use. Highly recommend it.

  • from Dollard Des Ormeaux

Not that good after all!!!

I bought this tablet thinking a sweet deal for the price!!... dont like Ipads because Im limited to a 16, 32 64 or 128 gigs of memory wich is cost a lot of money!.. supposelly you can upgrade your memory with TabA 10.1 upto 200gig.... but what disappointment to find out you CAN not merge this memory with the internal memory!!.. so you are still stuck to 16gigs to download apps or movies from netflix wich fills your memory pretty quick!!.. you can move some apps to you SD card memory (very few apps allow to do this)but that is!!... some cheaper tablets you can install an SD card and incorporate to an internal memory!!... but Samsung tablets NOT!!!.... is fast!!.nice definition!!... nicelly built!!.... but limited memory

  • from Toronto

Bricked after 4 weeks

At first the tablet looked like a good deal - nice screen, good battery. But then I noticed occasional screen flicking. After 4 weeks it bricked -- didn't turn on no matter what I tried. Reset didn't work. Very disappointing. That was my first and, apparently, last Samsung.

  • from Vancouver, BC

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.

  • from Kelowna, BC

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.

  • from Goderich, ON

it's no IPAD!

Pro's - good battery, good display Con's - I can't figure out how to message on this item (other than Facebook messenger (which i don't regularly use)).

  • from New Brunswick Canada

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.

  • from Toronto, ON

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.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A Review

Excellent. Very user friendly.

  • from lac-du-cerf, QC

very satisfied

I've only been using it for a week, but it works great.

  • from Halifax, NS

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.

  • from Toronto, ON

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.

  • from Calgary, AB

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!

  • from St. Catharines, ON

Great tablet

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.

  • from Drayton Valley, AB

Great Tablet

This is a wonderful tablet, especially with the ability to add storage with a micro sd card. Tablet is very light and nice to hold.

  • from Ottawa, ON

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.

  • from Toronto, ON

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.

  • from Rennie

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?

  • from Red deer

Samsung Tab f

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

  • from Dartmouth, NS

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

  • from Canada

A great product

Great product, easy to use, takes great pictures, very clear screen, I'm very happy with this tab

  • from Ottawa, ON

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1

Arrived on time real fast all good condition works great so far.

  • from Northbrook, ON

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.

  • from Richmond, BC

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!

  • from Richmond, BC

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!

  • from Vancouver, BC


lovely tablet! great battery life! could improve placement of speakers but they still work fine.

  • from St. John's, NL


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!

  • from Toronto


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.

  • from Halifax, NS

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.

  • from Barrie, ON

Very happy!

Definitely a great tablet for the price!

  • from Toronto, ON


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!

  • from Winnipeg, MB

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.

  • from Windsor, ON

Very Nice!

It is much faster than the old Tab A or Tab E. Great design, very comfortable. Good price for basic school work.

  • from North Bay, ON

Awesome product 5 stars

Awesome tablet, love it ! Extremely responsive, super great resolution, absolutely no WiFi issues like the Lenovo has, we'll worth the extra money. 5 stars!

  • from Grand Falls, NL

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.

  • from Hamilton, ON

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.
