Anonymous, 29 Jul 2021is this tablet good or samsumg a8 for online teaching??I think it's good for online teaching once you disabled all amazon features using the fire toolbox. For me, it's better than Samsung A8. My neighbor has that kind of tab and it doesn't last long.

Good Tablet for tge price.
I used ToolBox to install Google Play Store. b3cause Amazon lack apps.
Everything works fine and are very snappy.

Only thing, is apps loaded from Google Play Store will not have Notification.

Anonymous, 29 Jul 2021is this tablet good or samsumg a8 for online teaching??Assuming you mean the Galaxy Tab A (2019): Go for the amazon fire tablet, it’s cheaper, with front facing video support > none (if GSMArena is to be believed), similar performance (although neither will be brisk), USB-C > microUSB, landscape camera > portrait camera. I would recommend watching a comparison or two before buying, but from the spec sheet alone; the Amazon Fire HD 8 is better for cheaper. Just keep in mind that the play store isn’t on the Amazon Fire series, so that amazon can get the 30% cut from app purchases, and also unless you pay extra at the start, there’s an ad on the lock screen. Hope this was helpful ;)

I bought this tablet for everyday use and it works perfectly fine for me. I just disable all amazon features using the fire toolbox. Now, it's like an android tablet with a cheap price. With its 2GB/32GB RAM, I managed to prevent lagging with a 128GB sd card as internal storage of my tablet. I installed more apps and there's no lag. :)

Unless you're a total Amazon fan you have to get the Amazon Toolbox off of XDA and download it to a Windows PC OR VM, if running Linux or MacOS. Once you use the Toolbox to disable the Amazon software and install the Google Play Store it acts pretty much like a regular Android tablet. Yes, once you disable stuff you can still shop on the Amazon app with it, read/download Kindle media and watch Prime video.
