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.
