User Reviews 1 User Reviews I find the tablet has disappointing performance that makes the device frustrating to use. The tablet struggles with intense tasks like games and photo editing and exports. It even stutters when playing music. The tablet fails at seamlessly fitting into my workflow compared to my smartphone.
- Gus Gonzalez
User Reviews 2 The display and speakers are good enough for watching videos. However, the facial recognition unlock feature often fails to work properly. The Snapdragon 450 processor delivers smooth performance for everyday tasks, though stutters sometimes occur in games with higher graphics settings.
- My Next Tablet
User Reviews 3 I find the plastic back of the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 lacks a premium feel, especially compared to the metal design of the iPad 9.7 in the same price range. The lack of a home button and fingerprint scanner is disappointing. Performance is slower than I expected, with the Snapdragon 450 chipset struggling at times to keep up when multitasking or playing games. The cameras deliver only average photo quality.

Samsung released Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5, an affordable Android tablet aimed at consumers looking for entertainment on a budget. 

While the device touts a slim profile and vibrant display, its middling performance fails to match expectations.

Sporting a 10.5-inch 1200×1920 IPS screen, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 renders video and images sharply. 

Its four-speaker stereo audio also impresses, delivering deep sound. 

However, the tablet's plastic construction feels cheap next to Apple's metal-clad iPad which costs similarly.

Powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor and 3GB of RAM, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 handles everyday tasks fairly well but stutters when multitasking or playing graphically intensive games. 

Its cameras also produce only average image quality compared to leading phones. Ultimately, the tablet does not deliver the seamless responsiveness users now expect.

While some shoppers may accept these shortcomings given the Galaxy Tab A 10.5's low budget, many other affordable Android and Windows slates now outperform Samsung's offering.

For Samsung devotees, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 merits consideration as a secondary entertainment device thanks to its vivid screen and speakers. 

But shoppers wanting an all-purpose tablet capable of boosting their productivity should pass on this mid-range slate in favor of more powerful options that deliver faster performance for not much more money.
