    It's quite remarkable my Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, a 5 year old tablet, in many ways is much the same as this. Better in some too.

    How does this compare? Same price but bigger screen and 3GB ram

    2GB RAM ….yikes!

    Just retired my nearly 5yo galaxy tab S
    It has 3gb ram.

      The software has improved, programs require less memory when they are refined more efficiently

    •  

      Thinking about retiring mine soon too… What was your replacement?

      •  

        Just an old iPad at the moment, until I work out what I want.
        I might go for the S5e as it’s ~$530 at the Samsung Edu shop. But I’m still not convinced.

        It was a forced retirement, it keeps powering off. I re-flashed it & I can’t even complete the setup :-(

        •  

          Yeah mine will be a forced retirement too… I only use the thing for reddit and youtube and it's still trying to kill itself :(
          The S5e sounds like a decent option but I heard the S5 might be released in a few months?

        •  

          My mum's tab S is heading towards retirement, the battery won't hold

          Looking and waiting patiently for a replacement for a decent price. The s5e seems like an ideal replacement but I'm worried about the wifi issue.

        •  

          I'm thinking of getting the S5e as its so light and thin. only downsides are theres no headphone jack and apparently your hand shields the wifi antenna on the top left when in landscape mode. havent had chance to try in shop yet to see how bad this really is

    •  

      Galaxy Tab S 10.5 was about $599 when it was launched in Australia. You should compare it with it with Galaxy Tab S5E or the upcoming S5.

      •  

        Or drop Samsung entirely. Apart from the RAM and four year old specs, here's some other Samsung 'gems'… Copying apple by dropping the headphone socket when so many apple users complain about losing it; dropping Android for Windows 10 [gag!]; no 12" model while apple are obviously selling the ipad pro… Samsung's marketing AND R&D departments have lose the plot.

        • +1 vote

          Both Exynos 7904 (Tab A) and SD 670 (S5E) were released in this year. They aren't hardly 'four year old specs' and I am pretty sure LDDR4 wasn't around here 4 years ago either. Plus, Tab A has kept the headphone jack unlike so many Chinese brands, which makes this deal even sweater.

      •  

        I only paid $490, which is about what this was when it was released.

        But my point was the 2gb of ram is pretty underwhelming, even for an entry level device in 2019, especially when you consider the mid-level 5yrs ago was 3gb.

        Of course if there wasn’t the large amount of bloatware Samsung attach, it mightn’t be so bad.

    •  

      I still use my tab s as a daily media consumption device. Its a shame samsung don't support OS updates as the hardware in the original tab s is still very good, even by today's standards

  •  

    Can't decide between this or the s5e.

        If you own a Samsung device, look at all the default apps you can’t remove.
        You can disable, but they all get re-enable with the next update. Rooting & removing, or flashing with vanilla Android makes a big difference.

    this one is a bit slow who even makes 2 gigs ram with 32 gigs memory for one UI in 2019 the value of this technology is $149 had it been Lenovo
    This tablet has nothing to write home about, and absolutely nothing going for it the lowest of the low low tech in America it will be sold in K mart, it will be help yourselves in a pile on the floor.

    I don't understand people complaining about RAM, especially those who have a Tab S tablet. This is Tab 'A'. A cheaper tablet. You should compare your S tablet with its direct successors such as S4 or even S5E.

    People choose a tablet based on their needs and budget.

    Tab A comes with a decent SoC (7904) and 2 year Australian warranty. It is good enough for many of us.
    And Come on guys, Lenovo is selling their Android tablet for $449 with 4gb RAM. However, it is slower than almost $200 cheaper Tab A 2019 because of its SoC (SD450). For those who don't want to gamble with imported Chinese tablets and just want to buy a tablet from Australian retailers for various reasons, there aren't many cheaper and decent alternatives.

    Plus, there is a 3GB RAM variant with 128gb internal memory available through TGG ebay store.

    •  

      Don’t get too excited. I’m just pointing out how underwhelming 2gb of ram is and that a mid-level 5yo tablet came with more. SO one would expect an entry level device 5yrs on would have at least the same.

      It’s like getting a windows device with 4gb ram. Sure it’ll run, but you might regret it in a year when it’s running slow. This is a great kids tablet (I’ve got a nearly 4yr 2gb TabA (t530) for one of my kids and it generally works well for them.

      The big plus for this is its sub $300, so you can write it off on your tax next month.

      People are complaining because 2gb is not enough for a tablet. Not that complicated.

    I got this Tablet with a Telstra bundle a few months back. While it obviously comes with a bit of their bloatware, its a pretty good tablet. I'd recommend for browsing and movies. Great for the kids, although as many others are saying, its not going to be amazing.

      How much RAM do you need to watch YouTube/Netflix and read your emails?

      Entry-level tablets like these weren't designed to be multitasking powerhouses like much more expensive tablets. They're for light use, and they do that job fine.

  •  

    My old Telstra branded 2012 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - 4G model is still going ok, slow, but ok..
    It seems as soon as the system update came out it killed it,
    like all updates it seems best to wait for user reports of what people do or don't like before updating…

    I would love to go back to the original software as it operated much quicker, no experience with flashing etc,
    and for the variant required on sammobile, you have to be a paid member unlike some of the other software.
    Usually 15 euro, but currently on special at 8.50 euro

    •  

      if you go back to the original software, some apps might not work.

      •  

        Yes, so very true, but if it makes it more useable, then might be worth it, quite a few apps already dont work with it due to its age and android version.

    It all depends on your purpose with a tablet.

    I had Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 which has better specifications than this. However, I replaced it to this model 3 weeks ago as 8.0 inch was a bit small.
    I was considering other tablets such as IPad 6 gen or Lenovo.

    The reason why I use a tablet is mainly for reading PDF files and watching Netflix or YouTube. I do not play games on a tablet or a mobile phone as I've got PS4 and Nintendo. It's got a perfect ratio to watch movies. So, this tablet was chosen among other options.

    No complaints with this tablet so far.

    I had the Samsung Tab A 2016, now I have the Tab S4, both tablets are great. A lot of people here complaining about the RAM on these Samsung devices.
    I've never had any RAM issues with either of these devices, nor have my child who plays games and uses drawing/painting apps.
    I'm not sure what people are doing to their tablets that are causing them so much RAM grief, but I/we have never had any issues.
    I'm considering buying this or the Tab A 2018 for my child to use. Samsung seems to have shown reluctant interest in introducing Android updates lately.
    My only complaint is the bloatware they install.

      No 4GB memory = No Fortnite

        That's like saying a cheap desktop cannot play triple-A titles.

        People buying cheap entry-level tablets wouldn't … or shouldn't be expecting to play high-requirement games on them.

          "nor have my child who plays games and uses drawing/painting apps.
          I'm not sure what people are doing to their tablets that are causing them so much RAM grief,"

          I answered his question. Nothing more. Fortnite is probably still the most popular game amongst school age kids at the moment. No idea why you then think it's ridiculous.

          Btw my daughter plays Fortnite on a Celeron from 2014 on low settings. So it's hardly top of the line when it comes to gaming.

            It would have helped if you specifically quoted the part you were responding to, and said more than just 5 words with no reasoning given.

            Fortnite is probably still the most popular game amongst school age kids at the moment. No idea why you then think it's ridiculous.

            Please point out where I said it was ridiculous.

            I said that people shouldn't be buying entry-level tablets to play high-requirement games.

            It's like buying an entry-level desktop to play Apex Legends and wondering why it isn't running properly.

            Btw my daughter plays Fortnite on a Celeron from 2014 on low settings. So it's hardly top of the line when it comes to gaming.

            Do keep in mind you're comparing running the same game on an entry-level tablet running on processor that's designed to use as little power as possible to a full-blown desktop CPU with no power budget that can happily draw 100 watts if it feels like it.

              The entry level tablet likely draws similar wattage to the higher end tablet so this is completely irrelevant and may even use the same battery. My phone draws even less and plays Fortnite fine.

              And none of that is relevant to my response which was to the question of what you'd need more for.

                His post had many sentences. Your five-word reply would have different meanings depending on which sentence you're replying to. Only you know which specific sentence you were replying to - that is why people normally quote the specific line they're replying to.

                e.g. it could be read this way:

                He said (and this is the gist of it):

                A lot of people here complaining about the RAM on these Samsung devices.

                You said:

                No 4GB memory = No Fortnite

                So I said:

                That's like saying a cheap desktop cannot play triple-A titles.
                People buying cheap entry-level tablets wouldn't … or shouldn't be expecting to play high-requirement games on them.

                If you went out and bought the cheapest HP desktop you could find, and your game runs terribly or not at all, would you blame HP or yourself for buying something blindly?

                I answered his question. Nothing more.

                Incidentally, he never actually asked a question.

                The entry level tablet likely draws similar wattage to the higher end tablet so this is completely irrelevant

                "Irrelevant" would be comparing a desktop computer with a desktop-class processor and GPU to an entry-level tablet with a mobile processor designed to sip power from a battery.

                And none of that is relevant to my response which was to the question of what you'd need more for.

                And going back to my point - if you quoted what you were responding to, your response would have made sense.

                Interestingly though, if you read through all the complaints about RAM, everyone seems more concerned about how smoothly the tablet runs on 2GB than being able to run Fortnite. Nobody else has mentioned Fortnite.

                  His post had many sentences.

                  I count 7. Which is a lot fewer than you just wrote. 7 is too many for you and 1 is too few. Perhaps you should consider changing your user name to goldilocks.

                  Incidentally, he never actually asked a question.

                  "I'm not sure what people are doing to their tablets that are causing them so much RAM grief, but I/we have never had any issues." may not have been phrased as a question, but anyone that bothered to actually read what I was replying to wouldn't be questioning what I was replying to.

                  Seriously, get over yourself. People aren't here to cater to you specifically. Someone else might complain that you quote too much, and might have complained if I had quoted. People aren't going to write messages the way you want them too. They aren't copies of you behind a keyboard. If you interact with people online it is obnoxious to go around telling them how they should word things just so that it is to your liking.

                  "Irrelevant" would be comparing a desktop computer with a desktop-class processor and GPU to an entry-level tablet with a mobile processor designed to sip power from a battery.

                  You made that relevant the moment you said "That's like saying a cheap desktop cannot play triple-A titles" because an old entry level piece of PC gear is playing the game we are discussing. Fortnite's requirements aren't particularly high. Is the problem that I did not quote that sentence for you? Did I need to remind you of what you'd just said? Do you have a problem with memory that I should be aware of? Or perhaps with comprehension since you seem to be unable to relate a response to a piece of the text that is being responded to. I'm not just being flippant. I'm serious.

                  Otherwise I don't have any idea if you're trolling or if you seriously interact with people this way regularly but you sound really high maintenance.

                  Nobody else has mentioned Fortnite.

                  Which is why my 1 line response was contributing something new. Fortnite, in case you're living under a rock, is (or has recently been) an extremely popular game, especially with kids.

                    Sure. And looking at your initial 5-word reply with no context, people aren't going to read your posts the way you want them to.

                    Right, I see the source of confusion there - you think Fortnite is a triple-A title while I don't consider it to be one. The definition can be fluid so I should have been clearer on that - I meant classic AAA games like PUBG, Apex Legends, GTA, and CoD where you need a beefy computer to have a good gaming experience.

                    Fortnite doesn't have high system requirements for a desktop compared to classic AAA games, so it's not surprising that it runs on a 5-year old computer.

                    Perhaps you should consider changing your user name to goldilocks.

                    OK, that's one way to look at it. The other way is that people aren't really buying entry-level tablets to play high-requirement (for a mobile device) games.

    It's bigger, it has an extra gig of ram. It's got a few compromises, such as a plastic body in places… But hey I think it's a good trade off.

    Oh and to be clear, it's the same price.
