Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • This tablet is a very good deal and works well. only thing I could say bad is it only has 16GB of storage but that's probably why such a good deal but u can always add a Mini SD in these to add more. I put a 32GB one in it.
  • I love the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1. I put my other one in a safe place. So safe I can't find it. The new tab A has a more elongated screen. I think it's a good thing for watching videos
  • This tablet ended up being the perfect size, I can bring it to class easily, and the expansion capabilities on it are very impressive.
  • Always liked Samsung and this is no exception. Fast, reliable with a great display and memory options [up to 200gb micro sd card].

What customers say about "Features"
Huawei MediaPad T5 10.1" Android 8.0 Tablet
  • Battery life is amazing. I had this at 100%.
  • Interface is lovely and intuitive. Feels like their EMUI skin tries to copy a lot from Apple's iOS.
  • Quick in menu and installing plus running apps. Easy.
  • The Huawei has worse sound, a bad camera, weak battery life.
  • Sound is terrible, lack any real volume.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • One of the things the make me very happy is the long battery life.
  • My old tablet gave out completely so I purchased this tablet because it was similar. I am happy with it especially because the battery life is much longer and it is faster.
  • Two bottom firing speakers only (easily covered by hands when holding in landscape mode).
  • The charger gets dangerously hot. I only used twice and stopped using after I discovered there was an issue.
  • The Operating System should be upgradeable. You shouldn't have to purchase a new piece of hardware in order to take advantage of the Android operating systems available.
