Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite Kids Edition review: Not for my kid Reviews

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite Kids Edition is my first kids-oriented tech product as a new father, so I’ve been looking at this tablet through a scrupulous lens, but I didn’t really like what I saw. Full disclosure: my child is now six going on seven months, so it’s below the recommended three-year-plus age range, but I am very cognizant of that in what follows.

There are two things that I love about the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite Kids Edition: its durable case and 360-degree kickstand. Everything else? I’m not a fan. Firstly, it costs $250, which is way too much for a tablet with slow performance. Secondly, this product screams “not really for kids,” from the glossy display with no damage resistance to the lack of thorough parental controls.
