An enjoyable tablet with restrictions. The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) is a compact Android tablet in the entry-level price segment. However, its affordable pricing means that Samsung has had to make some compromises. You can find out which these are in our review of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0.
Samsung advertises its 8 mm (~0.3 in) thin and 345 g (~12.2 oz) Tab A 8.0 (2019) as the ideal companion for using on the go, which should primarily be used for streaming services. In addition, the tablet comes with two months of YouTube Premium and three months of Spotify Premium, free of charge.
The specifications of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) are expected for a tablet at this price. The 8-inch display of the €160 (~$179) has a resolution of just 1,280×800, which Samsung complements with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 underpins the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) too.
In addition to the Wi-Fi model that we tested, Samsung also offers a variant with LTE. The latter retails for €230 (~$257).
