Design and smooth lines with different combinations of plastic
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2016 10.1-inch tablet handles well in the hands without feeling heavy or bulking more than would be necessary, with some dimensions adjusted to screen size. The rounded edges and the contour in metallic appearance (for the white model) give it softness to the touch and sight, maintaining the profusion of the plastic as is usual in Samsung's cheaper devices.
Although the material is what it is, that does not mean that it is of low quality: the construction is good and the finishes are also at a good level. Capacitive buttons off the screen with the central physical button so characteristic of the Galaxy; offering a clean back face with the 8 megapixel camera sticking out of the body and the LED flash right next to it.
Benefits in the price line: more than enough for any use
We have not experienced problems with the tablet during the test time: it moves well and starts applications without problems. RAM is a fair thing, especially if it is to take advantage of multitasking, but it should be sufficient for the usual uses in a device of its characteristics.
One of the key points of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A is that It is very appropriate for children. Not only because of its size or its cost, but also because it integrates version 4.0 of Samsung's "Children Mode". In this way the little ones have their own space to use their applications and games without fear of accessing other parts of the device.
