    You might consider this deal if you have a telstra id

    •  

      I did consider it but couldn't be bothered to try and get in to a telstra store to see if they would link it to one of my existing contracts. They probably would have.

      •  

        I bought one from Telstra online using an old account with no active service.

      Telstra deal is much better, you also get 4g wow. That’s a cheap tablet

    • +1 vote

      Strange why the Telstra deal has less votes that this one. The Telstra deal is for the 4G version of the same tablet and it is $35 cheaper. Am I missing something?

      •  

        Most can't be bothered with the hassle of getting a Telstra ID

        •  

          I had a few IDs from old accounts/sims and also have one from existing Boost mobile. There were no issues or hoops to jump through buying or checking out. At $264, it was worth the little effort.

    •  

      Thanks for that link. Just bought for $264 and incl the SIM (only 4G) option, not that I need. Nice (I hope)!

      I picked up an iPad from one of the recent deals and I'm pretty happy with it.
      I'd suggest buying a tablet like this one to be okay for video calling, web browsing, and media consumption.

          The unbranded tablet that I bought from a Chinese store on AliExpress, for about $115 four years ago, is running Android with over 50 extra apps installed and still works fine.

          •  

            @RickyJ: any big diff on unbranded apart from no updates?
            once had an unbranded phone, couldn't install gboard on it.

              @furyou: No update, no warranty and won't play HD stream service like Netflix/Prime/Disney+ due to Widevine L3.

              I have Tab A7 64GB with book cover for $305 from Samsung Education Store. It does what I need it to, stream Disney+ and Prime in FHD, stick an SD card to download movies to, surfing web and play some mobile gaming. When I need to play more than light mobile gaming, I use Steam Link and play Cyberpunk 2077 with Ultra Ray-tracing.

      iPad is basically the best if you really need one. No idea why but I’ve had Samsung tabs in the past and they just slow down to a crawl and there’s almost nothing you can do about it

    Hey guys,

    I have been looking for a tablet for reading for a while now. I already have a 7inch sm-t280 but the screen is horrendous.

    How is the tablet in the current deal for reading? Is it good or should I look for an amoled tablet on Gumtree?

  •  

    Alternatively I believe big w has this tablet with a case and Jbl wireless headphones for $319 during the current toy sale. Bit of luck required to find stock though.

  •  

    Arghh! This (or the telstra deal) might actually finally tear me away from my original 10.5 tab s which is still doing what I want from it perfectly.
    The resolution of the A7 seems fine but I reckon I would miss the super amoled screen brightness.

    Anyone else been in this position?

      Trust me, once you go AMOLED (or any kind of OLED), LED screens will always be a downgrade.

    Bought this a couple weeks ago. Thought it was decent, but ended up returning and buying a Samsung tab s7 instead. Slightly bigger screen, way faster and a lot nicer screen. If you can afford it, defs would recommend upgrading to the Samsung tab s7

  •  

    I bought one of these last week. It's pretty good. The lower ram definitely makes it feel slow opening and switching apps or typing on the screen compared to my android phone but it feels perfect for watching netflix, playing music of reading the internet on the go.

  •  

    Stupid question - can I connect this to my aldi android TV? That is, broadcast what’s on the tablet to the TV

  •  
  •  

    Deep discounts on tabs7 and plus please!

    •  

      Where ?

      •  

        Nowhere thats why I am saying please.

    Australia Post has the 2019 Galaxy Tab A 10 for $249. No 4G, if you don't need that.

    2GB RAM, 10.1", Android 9, TFT screen, smaller capacity battery.

    Can also do Dolby Atmos, for what that's worth to you.

    •  

      That has a much slower SoC, less RAM, two speakers (A 10.1) vs four (A7) and doesn't get Android 13 (this one is listed to receive Android 13 and it's already on 11 with last month update).

  •  

    I picked up a 64GB factory 2nd one for $280 on ebay. It's a budget tablet no doubt, but bang for buck it seems fine so far.

  •  

    Bought this for my son two months ago, with a huge thick protective case plus a screen protector. Last week the screen shattered in the corner and there's two cracks running the entire length of the screen. Surely dropping it a couple of times from a very low height with all this protection shouldn't cause this type of damage?? The case is super thick.

    Has anyone had a similar experience or has any advice? Replacing the screen is almost as much as just buying a new tablet. We contacted Samsung and they just told us to book an appointment which is over an hours drive away. Just thought I'd share to see if anyone has had a similar issue before or knows what to do?

    •  

      Why type of case was it?

      Higher quality durable cases such as Gumdrop have better all-round protection, especially shock-protection and structural support. Lower quality cases tend to quite finiky, so you have to pay closer attention to specs and reviews.

      Plastic screen protesters only protect the screen from scratches. Glass screen protectors help minimise impacts, but won't help with weak points (see below). Some heavy-duty cases come with hard-plastic front screen protectors which add structural support to the overall frame of the case.

      But you are always going to be more susceptible to damage if you drop a tablet at weak points i.e corners. Notwithstanding the fact that tablets are inherently more susceptible to damage by the mere fact of having a large screen with a thin body.

      Better off selling for parts, buying a new/used tablet and looking into getting a higher quality case. The cost to repair tablets is ridiculous.

      •  

        Hi mate thanks for your detailed reply. We used a glass screen protector and used this case:
        https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/aw/d/B08K8J33BH?psc=1&ref=ppx_p...

        We've used these types of cases before on an iPad and an old Galaxy tablet and those took many drops without any damage. Very frustrating that this one is shattered within two months, despite them advertising as "Raised bezel edges to protect the screen from being scratched and shattered". What a load of rubbish hey :(

    •  

      I've got the Tab S7 which is similar with the Samsung keyboard cover (provides no protection to the edges), dropped it off the bed a few times (floorboards) and the couch onto tiles once, the sides are roughed up but the screen is still fine. I think it will depend on the angle of impact but I imagine a case would provide better protection.

      •  

        Yeah I'm just amazed that the screen shattered so easily with the case it had on. Complete rubbish. The company who makes the case refunded me for the case itself but obviously I'm not going to see the money for the tablet ever again. Replacement screen literally costs more than what the tablet is selling for on sale at the moment. Absolute joke. Oh well, unfortunately nothing I can do now :(

    Was cheaper on amazon a few months ago. Hope it gies back to that price

    Back to $299?

    •  

      Yeah seems to be. I was looking at this 10mins ago for $249 and was also going to make a note here. I paid the $264 for Telstra deal (incl 4G which I won't use) and thought $249 is decent……..or was while it lasted for 15mins!

  •  

    Bought one at $249 some seconds ago.
    Thanks OP :)

  •  

    I regret buying from telstra for $264, can I cancel the order or return it?

    •  

      Telstra one has 4G included, these don't (not that I need) but might add resale value. Got shipping notification today, due for delivery tomorrow. Its not worth the hassle cancelling just for $15 (for me at least).

      •  

        I got the same notification regarding delivery, can't really be bothered with the $15 but for $19 I can get another Amazon echo (which I don't really need)

        •  

          Well if you do decide to return, let me know how you went (& method), in case I decide to do the same (unlikely).

    I bought one 2 days ago at jb for $298. Rang them today if i can get a refund and get the one from Amazon. Lady on the phone said no need to return the tablet to them. They can just refund the difference. 😁

      Tried that trick and was told I could return it and reorder. No instant refund.
