Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 review
Smartphones are fuming in the tech market, and thanks to the high-end features they get, the tablet market feels a bit left out. Besides Apple, there is no other brand in the market, which is bringing their A-game in the tablet world. It is all about iPads and its series. Recently, Samsung has launched its new Galaxy tablet, Galaxy Tab A 10.5-inches, which looks like a tight competition to the entry-level iPad.
This one is cheaper and has fewer features than the iPad, but it can be the right choice for casual users who don’t want to go much premium.
it is not a tablet to do heavy tasking but stacks up as an occasional tablet for multimedia fun, gaming, and productivity. But, is everything packed under the hood sufficient to give you a smooth experience?
Let’s check it out in the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 review below:

Design and Display
- Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is a massive tablet weighing around half a kilogram. It is effortless to handle in landscape mode though, but you feel that weight in portrait mode.
- The bezels are kept thin, which is a significant upgrade if compared to the older Samsung tablets.
- There is a front-facing 5MP camera on the thick bezel above the screen, and an 8MP camera sensor is at the back too.
- This tablet is filled with ports including a USB-C port, headphone jack, SIM and microSD port. The power button and volume rockers feel very clicky and tactile too.
- The four stereo speakers make it a powerhouse when it comes to playing songs. Check amazing prices by using Tata Cliq Coupon available on all bestselling models of Samsung Galaxy.
- Coming to the display, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is a decent tablet packing an LCD screen with a pixel resolution of 1200 x 1920.
- The images came out not too of a premium kind but acceptable. The colours didn’t come out sharper, and inadequate colour production was something which user might hate.
- But, the maximum brightness is very high, which will make it able to use in the sun easily. One most significant thing about this tablet is that it has a 19:9 aspect ratio, which is far better than 4:3 of iPads. Overall, the display like this is something you won’t expect from Samsung, but that can be understood seeing the price tag.
- The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is a slow tablet- period! From its laggy UI to switching between apps, this tablet feels quite slow and full of jitters.
- The apps get crashed down more often than not, and the camera app is very slow too. Under the hood, this tablet has a Snapdragon 450 chipset which we see in the budget level smartphones nowadays.
- Yes, one might think it has a low price tag, but it doesn’t mean that hampering with performance will make you buy it.
- On the benchmark tests, this tablet scored 3,507 on multi-core, which is a score you get to see on the lowest priced smartphones. It is a shame if you consider this score for a tablet.
- The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 runs Android 9 out of the box with Samsung’s One UI on top of it.
Cameras and Battery life of Samsung Galaxy Tab
- Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 houses a single rear camera which is kept as 8MP which might seem a low-resolution one.
- Keeping in mind that cameras in the tablet are not impressive; we give this camera a little lineage.
- For selfies or video calling, there is a 5MP front shooter. It can also come in handy for facial unlocking.
- I have mentioned earlier that the cameras in the tablet are not that good of a performer. it is the same case with this tablet’s camera- it feels slow and jittery.
- Not only this but also the face unlocking feature was an average of a kind- not fast and sometimes unable to read the Face.
- The battery life, on the other end, is strong- powerful. Unlike weak cameras and display, the battery life rocks. It is far better than that of iPads, which require charging again and again.
- Using this tablet for multimedia, gaming will not give much of a battery drain to the tablet. Although playing PUBG Mobile for 1-2 hours can give you a noticeable battery drain.
Final Verdict: Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5
- The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is not at all any competition to iPad. It is just a cheap tablet which is having a compact range.
- It won’t be able to satisfy casual users with its processing power. Apple has no doubt higher cost of its iPads, but the value you get out of the box is unique too- more energy, fast, smooth ecosystem, and whatnot.
- Samsung might have tried to come up with mediocre specs, but they feel entry-level when used, and the cheaper cost seems high too.
- It is hard to recommend this tablet to any user when there is a device like iPad 9.7 (2018), which costs a bit more than this one. You can also get the latest Technical Manager Jobs updates by visiting us regularly.
