We have had the Samsung SM-t350 galaxy tab A for over a year, recently the tablet shuts down when using it. It also does not hold a charge. the tablet takes a whole day to charge if not 2 days. What is wrong with this tablet, I will not buy another Samsung tablet it is garbage. they make items that you throw out after the warranty is over. I will be spreading the word on how bad this tablet IS.

  • from Ottawa, ON


There is a reason these cost half the price of a comparable iPad. Web browsing is painful, it has difficulty even completing this review online. You get what you pay for and a reason Apple products cost what they do.

  • from Calgary, AB

Not Impressed

This tablet has a reliability issue. Have had it for 6 months now and it sometimes shuts down for no reason. Sometimes won't start up. Android apps are very intrusive with the permissions required. I guess you get what you pay for...Going back to an ipad

  • from Mississauga, ON

Doesn't worth the money

I bought this tablet from Bestbuy less than a year ago and now it's shutting down several times a day, I took it to Samsung service center and they factory reset it and nothing changed, no body there seem to be able to tell what's happening with this tablet, I don't recommend anyone to buy this one. save your time and go for an ipad

  • from Cornwall, ON

Great tablet

I brought this tablet from best buy in the boxing day sale, great price, nice colourful screen and a great size to hold, does everything you need, few tweaks and it's really fast, if you're into gaming you might need something faster, it's a cool little tablet and made nice!

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8"

Works very well! Wou6 recommend for the money.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Just Ok

Purchased this tablet as an open box deal. Was able to upgrade it to the 7.01 Overall, it is just ok but it lacks the colours and speed of some of the newer tablets. Will be returning this item.

Great Tablet

My wife and I bought this for one keep our two and a half year old entertained in the car for a long road trip. I was worried the 8" screen size was too small but ended up being perfect. I like the ease of adding media on and off the tablet too compared to an apple product. The other bonus is no bloatware that I've seen included on android phones in the past.

  • from Napanee, ON

Excellent quality and price

Does everything I ask of it with no disappointments. First Android, I'm impressed.

  • from St John's, NL

Camera Flash

"No" Camera Flash. :(

  • from Flowers Cove, NL

Not recommended.

The tablet that I have constantly shuts down for no apparent reason. Sometimes charges very well, other times it takes hours and hours. Some apps work sometimes, then don't work at other times. I certainly wouldn't buy this again.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Galaxy A8

Love the size and the number of application it can take. Reasonable prize for the tablet.

  • from vancouver

Apple losers are never going to like the Samsung!

Without Samsung Apple would not be able to build an iphoney or an ipaddy. Apple has not made hardware for years. I love this unit, and it did not cost me an arm and a leg., just drop in a 64gb SDHC card. BTW. I also still use my older older tab10.1

  • from Enderby

Galaxy tab 8"

I bought this tablet about 3 weeks ago. It meets all my expectations and works well. I would highly recommend it for the price and quality. You could pay twice as much but the difference would be minimal in my opinion.

Samsung Galaxy tab A

Good value

Love the Samsung 8.0 tablet

Love it! Great size-small enough to take along but big enough to do anything on!

  • from Don Mills

Great Tablet

Great tablet for the price and a perfect size.

Great tablet

Great 4:3 ratio, quad core Android tablet. Bought it for my wife for Christmas and we are both impressed. Very light, so perfect as an e-reader and watching videos. Love the micro SD slot to expand memory. Android has come a long way in the last couple years and is finally a viable alternative to iOS.

  • from Regina, SK

Product Returned

Had to exchange the Tab A 8.0 for a Tab E 9.6 at the store last night . Tab A 8.0 is ok when you are just using it for watching videos however the letters are not clear whenever you are reading an article from a website. I don't find the screen that bright and I'm having a hard time using my Iphone headphones to the Tab A.

  • from BC

Love it!

First time owning a tablet.. and I bought my husband and I each one for Christmas. Same model, different colors. Both are getting used to it as we're both seniors, but I'm enjoying it and so is he!

  • from Nova Scotia

Good for the price

Good tablet for price. Like it.

  • from N h

Tab a Samsung 357

Has a get look and feel to it all as are great except KNOX IS A PAIN IN THE A...S especially when you go off grid to download or install apps that will remove bloat wear which consumes battery and ram when using it so out of 10 . 6

Still Learning

I bought this tablet simply because I wanted to see what having one was like. It's taken a bit to learn what I can do with it, and how it operates (more like my phone than my laptop) but I'm getting there. There doesn't seem to be anything truly special about having a tablet other than the size and portability of it. This particular model seems to hold a good charge, has a good viewing screen, and reacts quickly to my prompts. Not knowing what I expected, I am satisfied.

  • from Grande Prairie, AB

Just the right tab for a not so fancy person like me

I was expecting the delivery for 3 days longer but i received it 3 days earlier. A good job from our best buy buddies! The tablet has disappointments. Just simple as i wanted to be. Has the right size for me like a notebook to handle for my small hands. Not too big, not too small. I am very happy with it as i got it as sale and save some bucks from it. Thank you!

First time Android buyer

Was a hard core Apple customer for over a decade, got sick and tired of their continual limitations increasing with every forced upgrade. Went with a Samsung Tab running Android with the expectation of a more open system. Have been using for over two weeks now, and really like the product. I travel extensively and wanted a system for movies, music, and internet. I also watch a lot of news so wanted apps than can cache videos for later viewing, something that is nearly impossible with Apple these days. The Samsung is perfect for all my needs and am really pleased with the performance. Took a few days to learn how to navigate around effectively but now have no issues. Music and videos are completely open and I really like the sideload capabilities. Battery life is 12 hours and you have an external port to slide a micro sd card into to expand memory as much as you need. I recommend this product for anyone who has similar needs to mine.

  • from Kingston, ON

What more could you need

I bought this tablet for the convenience and the lack of delay when starting my laptop. I had read reviews and my goodness you have to be incredibly critical and demanding in order to find fault with it. I am extremely pleased with the purchase and I'm delighted with the performance.

  • from Markham, ON

Good Product at a Good Price

Tablet performs well. Screen is bright and clear. Price point is good for this kind of quality. Had a few problems with the website during the ordering process, but the tablet arrived quickly.

  • from Cornwall, ON

Like it

Great tablet. Ironically tho, im writing this review on the tablet but the best buy website wont let me select any stars. I would give 5 out of 5 if this page was set up for touch screens properly.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Nice Low end tablet

I purchased this as a basic tablet for travel and around the house use. It is lightweight and can be held across the palm of an average adult. The titanium colour looks very classy. Unlike some reviewers, I think the screen quality gives fairly sharp images and letters. It doesn't have the OLED pop of the more expensive tablets, but I'm still quite happy with the image quality of this tablet. The camera/video is OK. It's not that fast, so you have to hold it steady. It works better in bright light than in dark. Music sounded very good and pairing it with other Bluetooth devices went well, though the range seemed a bit limited. I find the tablet to be very responsive to touch commends. The web looked very nice and you can navigate easily. It comes with some handy Microsoft Office apps (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Skype) though you have to update them first. They seem to work OK. I haven't tested battery life but it seems to be acceptable.

  • from Toronto, ON

We like it

It seems pretty good. Haven't had any issues with lagging or other performance issues. Screen while using apps like Netflix is better than expected.

Traveling Tab

I did not, nor did I get, a top-of-the-line tablet. You get what you pay for. What I did not want nor to pay for was a mini-TV, a mini-sound system, or a replacement for a desktop computer. What I wanted and paid for was a tablet that would provide information when I was travelling, both domestically and abroad; information about those I left behind and about what was around me. It does that well. I wanted a place to back up the pictures I took while travelling. It does that (with an additional purchase of a mini-SD card and an OTG cable) well. I also wanted something that I could use for entering drafts of my trip notes, impressions, &c., and for minor note-taking and keeping track of my expenditures. With the additional purchase of a bluetooth keyboard, it does that well. Too, I wanted something with which I could use offline mapping apps and the like. It does that well. This tablet fits easily in any bag that I carry, be it messenger bag or daypack, and even in the wider pockets of my travelling jackets. The screen, no matter what settings you use, is tough to see in sunlight; I have to seek shade or a tea house. Pity me, having to take a relaxing break at a coffee shop just to use my tablet :-) The battery will easily last for two day's full use and more. As with any Android device, much of how well you like it will depend on what apps you put in it. But! Don't overlook some of the apps that Samsung includes in the Tab A. I find the generic internet browser provided with the Tab to be the easiest to use; the implementation of Chrome in Android 5 sucks. Too, I like the simplicity of of the Samsung email client over Google's app (also included), and the MyFiles works quite well for transferring data from external sources to those within the Tab A's realm. There are likely better tablets at this price range out there, but I didn't find one. I have no buyer's remorse over this purchase.

Poor Resolution

I bought this tablet to replace a 10 year old laptop that bit the dust. As a basic user, I was looking for something fairly inexpensive for light web browsing, music playing and video streaming. While the tablet is user friendly and comes with lots of great features, the picture quality is really quite poor. It would be difficult to enjoy reading any type of eBook, or even web browsing on this tablet. It will be returned.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

dead battery

after 2 months since Christmas this gift needs to be returned for warranty replacement. battery will not charge at all.

  • from Toronto, ON

Excellent for the price

Very good quality for it price

  • from Vancouver, BC

Great tablet for the Money

This Tablet works fantastic for all you basic needs. The screen is fine for web browsing , movie watching & pictures. The Tablet is very easy to use if you know an Android system. I had an Ipad Mini which I liked at first but the more I used it the more I found out I disliked it !!! the expandable memory alone & the freedom to share & download items with out an Apple FEE or permission... I was so frustrated with Apple I have switched Phones & Tablet and the freedom is great!!! for the price it is well worth it the Ipad mini was more money and less user friendly..

  • from Toronto, ON

Very poor specs for a tablet in this price range

While I do love most Samsung products, and this tablet does have some good features (1.5GB of RAM and a quad-core processor), its extremely low screen resolution of just 1024 x 768 is simply not acceptable for an 8" tablet, especially in this price range. Many 7" tablets today have much higher resolution and are more pleasant to view than this 8" one. Its images are just not as crisp as they should be for a tablet at this price level. If poor resolution is not a problem for you, then save your money and buy a product at half the price of this one.

  • from Markham, ON

Main Problem on this Tablet A

Bought one - had problem with turning on screen froze for hours, ultimately I had to return to bestbuy for another exchange. Now I have second one using occasionally daily but it is also starting to have turning on screen slowing down. I m sure this is also have same problem like the first one.............price is excellent on sale but this problem is disappointing me with the new Samsung tablets. Also while being on, the back gets hot around turn on/off button for hours.

  • from Inuvik, NT

love this tablet.

I'm a new fan. Have always purchased apple iPad's, now that I bought this one I'm never going to buy another iPad. Love it, and love the price, the quality, and also being able to add in a memory card for more storage.

  • from Burlington, ON

Great buy

Bought this tablet to replace one that died. If you're watching netflix and youtube etc. this is a great tablet for the price. I've got much more expense tablets as well but this one is great for above mentioned stuff.

  • from Vancouver, BC

poor resolution makes this a non-starter for me.

Not happy with the archaic resolution and will be returning this.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Great Experience

I've switched from a smartphone to this tablet and haven't looked back. I can do everything my smart phone could do and more. The battery life is great, can go days without a charge.

  • from Lachine, QC

Great packaged, but the screen resolution.

Dont know if the put in a low resolution screen to make more money or to extend the battery life. Its innaceptable today to have a 1024x768 native screen resolution in any product. My present tablet, a basic Asus Memo PAD 7 HD has a resolution of 1280x800. So I brought it back and will be waiting for other models in the same price range to come out. The Asus Zenpad S 8.0 ,as mentioned in another review, is spec wise, in another category. It will probably not be in the [price] range. But if it is, Samsung will have a hard time in selling the TAB A...

  • from NL

Poor screen

Bought this tablet and returned the same day. Like the 4:3 aspect ratio as better for surfing web. However, the screen is terrible. 1080p screen is standard be standard. Wa

  • from Markham, ON

excellent tablet

This is an excellent tablet. the battery is just insane. it lasts forever. i had a nexus 7 which died and i wanted an affordable table. I love the nexus line because no bloatware but the nexus 9 was too big and overpriced. This tablet is just perfect, great price, great features, and great screen. so comfortable in one hand. A lot of the reviews are bashing the screen and no doubt its not near the quality of samsung s line, but this tablet is half that price and the screen is really a non-issue.

8 " Samsung Tab A

I absolutely "love" my new-to-me tablet! In fact I am writing this review with it! This is the perfect fit for what I wanted for travelling.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Excellent tablet-little too pricy for specs

This is a great tablet, the battery lasts for ages, fast delivery, not really happy with the low resolution, good loud speakers, liked the Microsoft Office suite with the tablet, great OS.
