Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is a fair quality phone launched a few years ago, packed with a huge 8 inches multi touch screen, a quite powerful 1.2 gigahertz CPU, and two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 MP front side camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

This phone just has 8.2 inches long and 5.43" wide, but it's able to fit a a 8 inches screen. Being just 0.29" thick,this phone is very slim and comfortable. This device is much lighter than what one would think about a phone this size. This cellphone is for sale in 3 color options, gray, blue and white.

This phone includes an average 1024 x 768 8" display, which makes all pictures and videos look nice. Its display uses TFT capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

Samsung equipped this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 system chip, which holds a fast CPU running at 1200 megahertz and a big 1,5 GB of RAM. A good advantage of this phone is its 16 GB quite big internal memory and an external memory slot, allowing the user to install hundreds of games and apps without any trouble.

This cellphone doesn't have a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM services.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front facing camera. It can also film videos in 1280x720 (HD). This camera also features a few interesting characteristics like face detection shooting, auto-focus and geo tagging.

The Tab A 8.0 comes with a high capacity 4200 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery providing this device an impressive battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, though with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this phone before that becomes a real problem.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.1), GPS Navigation and NFC, and some sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

Samsung is selling this cellphone for $ 139, which is a quite high price for comparing with other similar phones.
