Normally, a 16 gig Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 will run you $230. Right now, an eBay seller is doling them out at the low low price of $160. It is, however an open-box item. The seller is promising that the device will come in the packaging it was purchased in, but that you may find your box “lightly distressed,” but since they are also offering a full-year warranty, that should be plenty of time for you to make sure the tablet is fully functional.
The specs of the 8-inch Galaxy Tab A include 2GB of RAM, a 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, 16 gigabytes of internal storage, a 2 megapixel front-facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera. It has a slick, metal chassis that makes it feel more upscale than the normal Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Although the package is previously opened, the seller claims that the Galaxy Tab A comes with all of its original accessories including the USB cord and power adapter as well as the original startup guide. The device has seen some previous use, but the product description says that it’s nearly impossible to tell and that the tablet has been restored to its original factory settings.
If you’re in the market for an Android tablet and getting a previously used device is worth the $70 discount, you’ve just found what you’ve been waiting for!
