i have been a huge fan of samsung tablets for years. i wanted to replace my tab a 8.0 with something newer and decided on the a7 lite. on the surface it is okay but it really seems to be a step backwards. it lags constantly and the screen display is grainy at best with no option to change the washed out contrast. it apparently does not have an auto wake sleep function when a case like a fintie is closed. the keyboard is a nightmare to use. none of this was the case with my other samsung tablets. unless i am missing something, samsung needs to fix this tablet to make it a real competitor on the tablet market. i am thinking of shelving or selling this one and going with a tab a 8.4.
