It is. But then so too are my eyes. Why on earth I have a 4k phone I don't know.
That's worse spec and £60 more than the Medion Tablet I posted yesterday and this is 230!
Can anyone help & tell me what the difference is between this one & a Galaxy tab 4? Also a Galaxy tab s2, is this the latest model? I'm an Apple girl so I've not got a clue.

Thanks so much in advance.
Samsung have so many tablets with very similar specs. A, E and 4 are all very similar and S, S2, Pro and Note are similar. Very confusing.

The A, E and 4. Are all similar. Some have slightly more ram, a few more pixels or slightly faster processor. The S2 is most like an Apple device having the same aspect ratio (the screen is more square than wide). The S has very similar specs to the S2, but is wide screen. The Pro and Note tablets are not quite as good as the S's. Bought a 8.0 S2 for £219 after seeing it in Currys. Screen is lovely.

To answer your question more exactly this tablet is a year newer than the 4, but the specs are almost identical, the 4 actually having a higher resolution screen and yes the S2 is the newest one.
Why doesn't anywhere seem to have deals on 4G versions?!
is this better than the nexus 8.9"?

Check the update availability as recently got a update to 5.1.1 on my Note 2014
It has Lollipop
Im getting confused with all these tablets. I started with a playbook (great sound/camera/video, rubbish browsing, good storage), HUDL 2 (mostly good apart from when the battery charging packed up after a month despite being 'repaired') and now looking for a new tablet in the budget of around 150. Would this be a reasonable tablet for daily use?
The Tab A comes with a 1 year subscription to Microsoft Office on the tablet so really handy! It has expandable storage upto 128GB so better than the Nexus 9 in that respect! Samsung slimmed down the software a lot on this model so very smooth and fast! No need to put this tablet down as you won't find a better tablet from a bigger brand for this price!
The top of the description says 2g ram, the bottom says 1.5g ram

The tab 4 and tab E have both been less than £100 recently and they both have a higher resolution screen than this tablet, but then are better and worse on lots of other things, but all about the same. So I just don't see this being worth £50-60 more.

The WiFi-only model ships with 1.5GB RAM, while the S-Pen and LTE-equipped models up this to 2GB
SM-T555 has 2GB SM-T550 has 1.5GB
To be honest I had enough of samsung. Thr last good device they made was S2 phone. That's it!
After that all they make overpriced laggy piece of you know what.
For example this tablet it doesnt worth more than £80 at best I could call it mid-range tablet and I bet it will strat to lag after a year or so just like all other samsung devices...
Why not buy something like linx for example:
amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21
Spec are around the same its cheaper, more space, you get keyboard oh amd wait its full bloody windows 10! Which compared to android is like comparing bycicle and a lamborghini...
Samsung go hide somewhere and die slowly no one needs your crappy devices and your marketing tactics won't hold you so high at the top forever.

Any luck on your hunt?
Why would you have this over a Nexus 9? Something is fishy. It doesn't quite add up.
has anyone looked at the nvidia shield k1. much better specs for 149 and its being updated to marshmallow over christmas.
