What customers say about "Key Specs"
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580NZKEBTU) (10.1, 32GB, Wi-Fi) Black/Grey
  • 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].
  • Handy item, yet for emails, it is seriously lacking.... and in a disorganized format and tiny words to read!!!!! Other than the weak WiFi reception near coffee houses.... it is a very nice unit.

  • I have a good connection, (fibre broadband) a decent screen refresh time, and the opportunity to access a great deal more if I want to, including the Prime benefits.
  • This is a very good tablet, long charge life, good screen and a lot of storage capacity.
  • I love the size of it and the storage capacity, Alexa is a bonusxxxx.
  • I am very pleased and the storage capacity has been excellent for my needs.
  • The Fire HD comes with the ability to increase the storage capacity substantially via a memory card and I think that was the main selling point in relation to the size.

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580NZKEBTU) (10.1, 32GB, Wi-Fi) Black/Grey
  • Gets VERY SLOW after 4 months of my use (note that i don't install much apps, only use it for social media and Netflix)
  • I have experienced a few lags but I think that's us getting to understand each other, outside of that, really fast processing
  • I'm impressed how fast the processor is on this tablet compared to my old tablet. I've had this tablet for almost 2 months, use it everyday, and have not encountered any problems with it. Great tablet and great price.
  • Very fast processor, great price and easily syncs with my Samsung products.
  • This processor Exynoss has a excellent performance, great tablet, fast and beutifull display.

  • The new processor is much quicker than the previous version. It's very good for browsing the web.
  • The processor speed is great and for surfing the web it does everything you’ll need.
  • Great tablet processor very quick and easy to navigate. Would still like it to be BT compatible but not the end of the world
  • Processor kinda weak, close all the background app for avoid problems.
  • Thing is the underlying version of Android is ancient. And processor is slow. Tablets have moved on as have requirements and this tablet cannot cope.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580NZKEBTU) (10.1, 32GB, Wi-Fi) Black/Grey
  • 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.
  • Love this tablet, the storage is outstanding and the operating system is very nice with very little lag if any
  • 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.

  • The battery is OK but nothing special so be prepared to have to charge it frequently depending on use.
  • So far I have had no issues with WiFI connectivity or video quality when streaming.
  • The tablet’s operating system is slick and fast to use and the presentation looks great as you scroll through the various themed pages.
  • The speakers are good enough for me, and the sound is fine.
  • I liked the Alexa function to turn apps off and on and the picture quality is great for watching films in bed.
