Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Review: Does it offer a good deal?

Android tablets struggle to compete at the top end, where iPads almost single-handedly dominate. However, if you are looking for a budget gadget to watch Netflix, Apple is unlikely to be your first stop. You are probably searching for something similar to Samsung’s newest budget tablet, the Galaxy Tab A7. It is affordable, offers a beautiful screen and speakers, and has a long battery life. There are not many things to criticize here. This gadget was first released in India on September 11, 2020. Let’s checkout the features and specs of Samsung Galaxy Tab A7.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Full Review

Design

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 can be expressed as a simple iPad in the best conceivable manner. Unlike Apple, Samsung realizes that even their entry-level tablets should have small bezels and face recognition, which the ordinary iPad lacks. The Tab A7 is available in dark grey, as well as gold and also silver. When used, the Tab A7’s narrow bezels almost disappear, giving users an all-screen experience. While its aluminum shell feels solid, there is still a little give when users grip it.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 weighs 476g or 1.1 pounds and also measures 9.8 x 6.2 x 0.3 inches, making it slimmer than the Amazon Fire HD 10 and comparable to the Apple iPad 2020.

Additionally, the Tab A7 supports USB-C charger, which is also available on the Fire HD10, but unavailable on the iPad with a unique Lightning connector. Additionally, it possesses the previously stated microSD slot for extending local storage with a headphone jack, since not everyone is open for Bluetooth yet.

Display

Tab A7 comes with a slightly lower pixel density of 224 pixels per inch, which makes it less crisp than the iPad 2020’s 264-ppi display. The same density is seen in the 224-ppi Fire HD 10 (10.1-inch, 1920×1200 pixels).

According to the Klein K10-A colorimeter, the Galaxy Tab A7 delivers 101.7 percent of the sRGB spectrum, which is comparable to the 106 percent produced by the Fire HD 10 and the 97 percent produced by the iPad 2020.

The Galaxy Tab A7 has a maximum brightness of 329.3 nits, which is less than the Fire HD 10 (403 nits) and the even brighter iPad 2020. (484 nits). This low brightness rating may have contributed to the Tab A7’s screen darkening significantly when viewed from 30 degrees to the left or right.

While scrolling through Android, the Tab A7’s display provides precise input tracking. Websites flowed well in Chrome as well, however the Samsung Internet browser app did not.

Cameras

Although the Galaxy Tab S7’s 8-megapixel back camera and 5-megapixel front camera seem impressive on paper, users may struggle to obtain excellent results from them. The images shot with the selfie camera could feel too soft.

Users can adjust the smoothness from the default settings. The setting allows users to correct smoothness, Jawline, Tone, and Eyes. Even when I corrected it, users’ skin may seem excessively washed out and bright. Photographs of a wooden coaster on a chair also did not seem to be very crisp.

Performance, Software and UI

Samsung Tab A7 is powered by Android 10 and has the One UI. On a bigger screen, Samsung’s distinctive improvements such as Edge panel app shortcuts and app windowing make even more sense.It’s uncommon that 10.4 inches is big enough to do desktop-style productivity tasks, much less with a meager three gigabytes of RAM. However, floating media controls or a chat window over your social media feed or whatever is convenient.

It’s usually true that Android’s tablet applications aren’t particularly excellent, and that remains mostly true. In comparison to iPadOS, there are just not as many Android applications optimized for big screens.

While some, such as Gmail and YouTube, make advantage of the additional space to display more information, many just bloat the regular mobile experience to cover the screen. That’s unfortunate, but it’s not an indictment on the Tab A7 in particular, and given that you’re likely to spend the most of your time on this tablet viewing video or reading, it’s not a significant problem.

Battery and Charging

The Galaxy Tab A7 has an impressive battery life. It lasts around 13 hours and 13 minutes according to the Tom’s Guide battery test. It almost seems relentless in giving support during web browsing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness. That’s almost 32 minutes less than the Fire HD 10’s record-breaking 13 hours and 45 minutes, but 16 minutes more than the iPad 2020’s duration.

Price of Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 in Bangladesh

The device is currently officially available in Bangladesh. The price of the Galaxy Tab A7 is BDT 28,999. However, the price is subject to change.

Conclusion

The Tab A7 is an uncomplicated gadget. It’s a straightforward Android tablet with no frills. Samsung’s affordable tablet offers almost nothing more than the ease of better access to Google applications. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is a good option for anyone looking for a standard tablet under budget.
