Samsung Philippines recently launched the Samsung GALAXY Tab A, which promises both productivity and entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

In a media event, Speed was among the first to try their hand on Samsung’s latest addition to its tablet line. The company also announced its four brand ambassadors from the creative industry: Jowee Alviar and Mon Punzalan of Team Manila, Nix Analon of FTA Design, and Reese Fernandez-Ruiz of Rags2Riches.

Some key features of the new GALAXY Tab A include the S Pen, a more advanced and ergonomic stylus that promises more accuracy and precision in sketching and note-taking; the Smart Select feature, which captures images and transcribes text; and the S Planner whose smart algorithm saves your notes and scribbles to your contacts or calendar.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab A also offers versatile connectivity thanks to its full LTE smartphone functionality, enabling users to experience SMS, Wi-Fi, and mobile data just like any smartphone. Productivity on the GALAXY Tab A is increased, too, because of the tablet’s 8-inch screen with 4:3 ratio that maximizes the text and content shown.
