Samsung releases budget-friendly Galaxy Tab A7

October 29, 2020

As Samsung’s budget friendly Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab A series doesn’t tend to command a lot of media coverage when it gets an upgrade.

However, 2020 has indeed delivered a new incarnation of this popular tablet in the form of the A7 and it includes a quality build, 10.4-inch screen, and a definite focus on entertainment.

So, let’s take a sneak peek under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7, including how exactly this tablet can be used in business.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A series

While the S series is Samsung’s premium tablet range, the A series is designed to appeal to those looking for something a little more budget friendly.

It still features OK specs and a quality build, but not the cutting-edge technology found in Samsung’s flagship Tab S range.

Ultimately that makes it more suited to passive tasks, so streaming videos and light gaming is fine, but you won’t be taking quality images and editing them via Adobe PhotoShop on this device.

And that’s fine because when we mention the A7 being budget friendly, it kicks in with a price point of US$229.99, which is indeed pretty kind to your cash reserves compared to the S7 which starts at US$649.

So, what do you get for that price?

As a quality Android tablet with a budget-friendly price tag, the Galaxy Tab A7 is suited to a range of business uses.

It could potentially be deployed as a mobile Point of Sale, but its strengths are probably better utilised for purposes like dedicated digital advertising, customer check-in, visitor management, or as an information kiosk.

If you’re looking for a tool that facilitates working on the go however, the Tab A7 may not be the ideal choice.

In that case, the higher-spec Samsung Tab S7 offers a little more flexibility as it comes complete with S-Pen included and readily accommodates the addition of a type cover and track pad for everyday tasks like word processing.

That said, the Tab A7 has a definite place in the tablet market and business world, offering an affordable, high-quality option that accommodates the Android platform.

Why use a tablet-based visitor management system?

September 25, 2019
From schools, to government buildings and business, many entities are required to track the visitors they have on site in the interests of safety and security. And for many of these organizations, that visitor management system is paper based, relying on a receptionist or staff member to welcome people to a building, sign them in and then log them out at their end of their visit. It’s tedious, time consuming and creates a cumbersome paper trail. It also no longer needs to be that way, with many businesses now turning to simple software and tablets that can fulfill this compliance at a fraction of the cost.
