Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4: The Basics

With the Galaxy Tab A7 10.4, Samsung has made an out-and-out entertainment tablet that comes packed a big 10.4-inch display on the front. It has a 2000 x 1200-pixel resolution with a screen-to-body ratio of 80 percent, thanks to its relatively thinner bezels. That screen is paired with a quad-speaker setup tuned by Dolby Atmos and supports stereo audio output for immersive media consumption and gaming. As with most other Samsung tablets, this one too excels in the build department with a full metal back, except for the antenna part.

Under the hood, a mid-tier Snapdragon 662 chip keeps things running, while the integrated Adreno 610 GPU handles the graphics part. This processor doesn’t bring earth-shattering performance, but it sure is plenty powerful, considering it debuted only recently in January. It is backed by 3GB of RAM and up to 64GB of expandable storage. The Tab A7 comes running One UI over Android 10, which includes Samsung Kids with content tailor-made for your young ones. The custom OS also pairs well with your Galaxy phone, allowing you to receive your phone’s notification on the tablet or setup a hotspot automatically in case there’s no Wi-Fi on the tablet.

As for its connectivity features, you get the standard affair, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, along with optional 4G LTE. Samsung has retained the headphone jack, which is still common among budget and mid-tier options. You’ll find a couple of cameras on the tablet, one each on the front and back. What fuels the device is a 7,040mAh battery that you can charge using a 15W adapter over a USB Type-C port. You can get the tablet in three shades: gold, silver, and gray.

Pricing & Availability

Samsung has clarified that the Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 will come to Europe first, but it shouldn’t take long to hit other regions. If you go for its base Wi-Fi-only model, you’ll have to spend €229 or about $270. For the 4G LTE option, the price goes slightly up to €289 or around $340. It is expected to ship starting this month itself and should cover other markets in the following weeks. You can also pair this tablet with a book cover that Samsung sells separately. Samsung hasn’t shared any pricing detail for that accessory.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 Alternatives

In the same price bracket, you’ve got an excellent option in the form of the Apple iPad 7 10.2 (review), which performs well for its price and in general. While the tablet itself costs under $300, you’ll have to spend a bit more on its accessories. The Lenovo Tab M10 FHD Plus (review) could be another device worth checking out, especially since it costs exactly what the Galaxy Tab A7 does. However, it gets an older Android version. Those looking for an entry-level model but still want a big 10-inch screen should look no further than the Amazon Fire HD 10 (review) from last year, which scored well in our review.

Not too long ago, Samsung came out with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (review), a stripped-down version of its premium offering that supports stylus input. Though it doesn’t support keyboard attachments, leaving Bluetooth keyboards as your only option. If having a keyboard is an absolute must for your use case, then the Lenovo Chromebook Duet (review) could be a great option, considering it gets you a complete package for a tiny asking price. While those who don’t mind spending much more on their tablets should definitely go for the Microsoft Surface Go 2 (review) that stands as a strong contender.
