Offers enough power for many routine applications

from Notebookcheck
Samsung uses such a compact, lightweight design for its Galaxy Tab A7 (2016) SM-T280 that it could be mistaken for a big phablet at first glance. Although the casing is completely made of plastic, it is sooner noticed positively thanks to its non-slip back. A bit more stability would have benefited the connection of touchscreen and display; pressure causes wave formations on the screen quite early. The IPS panel is not really awesome in any aspect, but it does not exhibit any real weaknesses, either. The same is true for the installed cameras... Full review
