Editor Rating

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is part of the budget tablet lineup from Samsung, which was designed to serve students and enterprise users who don’t need a high-performance computing machine, but would rather have a reliable and affordable machine that can handle most day-to-day productivity tasks. This is why this device skips on the top-of-the-line processors and display, and goes for an energy efficiency and reliable Unisoc processor, paired with an LCD display. Even the cameras are mostly basic, but can still handle HD recording with ease.


Bottom Line

The Galaxy Tab A8 is a great entry-level offering focusing mostly on productivity and general multimedia tasks instead of trying to beat graphics-intensive games requiring a better processor and display.
