I purchased the Samsung Tab A9 (4/64 version) for about Rs 8700 ($104) in India, after all discounts on May 2. My daughter uses the iPad and wife uses the Redmi Pad, while I had the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) which was quite slow and low in RAM (2GB) and space (32GB).

I basically wanted a smaller tab (about 8-9 inches) for portability and convenience and did not mind the limited specifications as I mainly use the tab for emails, browsing the net, WhatsApp/Telegram chats, listening/streaming music and to start reading books via the Kindle app.

At this price, the A9 tab is really nice and compact. I have had absolutely no touch issues thus far. In order to free up and save on internal storage, all of my installed apps have been moved to the SD card. The screen is perfectly acceptable to me as I have been using the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) since the past 4 years.

I have used the Logitech K380 keyboard and Pebble 2 M350s Slim Mouse with the Tab A9 and it worked beautifully. It was my micro-PC while I was on a holiday.

People who buy the Tab A9 should be aware of its strengths and limitations. it is not a high-end tab for gaming or demanding apps. Have limited expectations and the tab A9 will deliver well. Have high expectations and the A9 will surely disappoint.

Regards

    Anonymous, 14 May 2024I want to know that does it includes the pencil to if not h... moreNo. Stylus is not included & Tab A9 is not compatible with Samsung's S Pen.
    There are some generic stylus in the market (mostly Chinese brands, like Baseus) that are compatible with Tab A9.

      I have lost my patience waiting for Samsung to fix the multitouch issues. I decided to sell the Tab A9 unit & buy Lenovo Legion Y700 (global version, 12GB RAM, 256GB ROM) for USD415.
      Yes, the Legion Y700's price is 3x the Galaxy Tab A9, but what I really need is a small Android tablet (about 8") that is reliable for gaming.
      I would recommend Galaxy Tab A9 for watching videos or browsing the internet, but I wouldn't recommend it for gaming.

              I have been using this
              a9 for mote than a month. There is a known issue witb touch screen. If the tablet had a screen protector on, the touch screen is really bad. Without Screen Protector, it was all right. Keep inmy there is no touch sensitivity option available in Tab A9.

                            Touch screen sensitivity is bad. Really really bad. Last time I feel this bad is way back to early touch screen era when they only have 2 finger multitouch screen. I really like the tab though. Mini tab with LTE and microSD support is my main reason to buy this tab. Yes I'm max it out with 1TB microSD card. My personal suggestion for next gen galaxy tab is :
                            1. Please fix touch sensitivity
                            2. Upgrade screen resolution to FHD+ but it keep close to 8in
                            3. Make 6gb ram an option for everyone
                            4. Keep support for microSD
                            That's it. Hope fully someone in the Samsung read this

                                  shamesung, 27 Mar 2024is the multitouch issue fixed in Android 14 OneUI 6 update?... moreUnfortunately NO. I have updated the tab with One UI 6, but the multitouch issues when gaming are still there.

                                    Ian, 31 Mar 2024Just got my Tab A9 updated to One UI 6. Everything feels fineI have updated this tab with One UI 6 too, but unfortunately the multitouch issues when gaming are still unsolved.

                                      Do you think it is good for reading and sometimes watching movies? I want small and lightweight tablet, but ipad mini costs 2.5 times more. Is it worth the price?
