Affordable, but solid

Like the 2015 model costs the latest version no assets: 10-incher going for about 250 euros in trade, the here tested LTE version costs €295. The small price you notice on the Tablet but at first touch: instead of the elegant aluminium is the tab A in a plastic dress and is quite thick with good one centimeter. And also on the scales a lot comes together: the needle stops at exactly 520 grams.

Better display for the big Tablet

And how good is the screen? In the test, the 10.1-inch display in comparison to its predecessor as a clearly turned better. No wonder finally it shows photos and videos in full HD with 1920 x 1200 pixels pretty hot. The 2015 version of the Galaxy tab A had still a somewhat smaller with 9.7-inch display, the resolution was only 1024 x 768 pixels. Thus many details during playback of images and films were lost.

No high-flyer

Even the drive is now stronger: Samsung has bought the Galaxy tab A the in-house developed processor of Exynos 7870 and the new operating system Android 6. Rattle the eight CPU cores with up to 1.6 gigahertz, the chip can draw on a two gigabyte large amounts of RAM. So the Tablet ran through the speed tests with a consistently high speed.

Scarce memory, moderate cameras

Class: the Galaxy tab A sprinting with fast Wi-Fi ac in the network. The store is, however, much too limited: only 8.7 GB are free. One or two movies, a little music, a game that was, more fit no longer on it. After all, the capacity microsd card can be extended. Samsung has saved even when the cameras: the lenses (rear: eight megapixels, front: two megapixel) provided some very blurry photos and videos with pale, distorted colors.


And how it looks with the blow of the two tablets? Already, the 2015 version of tab A delivered a sensationally good value with 14 hours and 37 minutes. Sets the successor to here? But yes: test the lights went out at the 2016er-tab until after 18 hours 10 minutes. Amazingly, because the Tablet must bring more pixels to light up than in the past, and also the stronger processor needs more juice.
