Tab A sure has a bit low end specification, but the device got a lot of software perks that you’re going to love and you may not find on Galaxy Tab 4 or lower models This time around, Samsung played a bit different. The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 doesn’t come as a lone device with varying connectivity bands, but Samsung released a variant accompanied by an S-Pen having same specifications as that of the ordinary Tab A 8.0. Tab A 8.0 without S Pen comes as SM-T350 & T355, while with S-Pen it comes as SM-P350 and P355.
