Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017)
Just bought this tablet second hand in good condition in 2020, and it does all I want it to. It has Android 9 on it, and it's working well, performance OK.
I'm not a fan of the hardware nav buttons, and I like to have them in the position that every other manufacturer does, but that's solved with a software nav button solution.
I have the LTE version and phone calls are very clear at both ends.
On the wish list side of things:
1) Notification light. It doesn't have one
2) More RAM. 3GB would have been nice, but in looking for a tablet, I notice most tabs at this price point were 1.5 to 2gb anyway.
3) More storage. 16gb is a bit on the small side. 32GB would have been nice. Although it does have microSDXC storage capability.
All in all though, very good tablet for the money I paid, which at the time of this writing was US $100 (AU$160). This tab will serve me a few more years yet.

Not too bad. Still has the same Samsung structure where specifications do not divulge such as capacity for USB attached storage devices etc. Appears to focused on selling than actually providing honest and logical information. Probably directing too mcuh toward Apple comparison than fulfilling user knowledge and ability to get the best from their devices.

Isaac, 19 Mar 2019Hello have lost my Samsung galaxy Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) sim ca... moreYep. It is really hard to find 1. I lost mine 2. That's why I ordered a similar tray from Galaxy A3 A5 A7 (2016) phone models. It does not fit 100% but I scratched it a bit with a rasp and now both my cards, SD and SIM are working! It is not an original tray and looks a bit weird but at least it is working. Just scratch it so it goes more deeply inside.
