Samsung Galaxy Tab S series
The all-new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 has an 11-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, which also boasts a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz to ensure smooth visuals during demanding tasks such as gaming. It also comes with a 13MP main camera and an optional 6MP wide-angle rear camera, as well as a 12MP ultra-wide-angle front camera that is best suited for video calls. 8GB of RAM is included as standard and storage options include a 128GB or 258GB version, with the option to expand up to 1TB with a microSD card.
Of course, there are no offers for this model yet because it is so new. In fact, many are still waiting for their pre-orders because the tablet was so popular. However, you can still order one from many retailers, and many are still running a promotion that gives you a free year of Disney+ membership with purchase.
Compared to the standard tablet in the new series, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has a much larger 14.6-inch screen. Storage options are available up to 512GB, and there’s also the option to increase the RAM to 12GB or 16GB – should you want to boost performance.
All in all, however, it is a very large, heavy and expensive set. For the casual user, this will probably be overkill. The focus is definitely on creators and professionals who need a larger second screen – and its price matches those requirements.
With a 10,090 mAh battery and a larger display, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus is more designed to replace a laptop in many portable capacities. You’re getting a powerful machine here, but at a $200 premium over the standard S7 model below. With the processor, storage, and storage remaining the same in both models, this is truly one for those who value screen real estate and battery life above all else.
This display panel is really something to celebrate though. With a stunning 2800 x 1753 resolution displayed on an OLED screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz and built-in HDR10+, it’s a pleasure to watch, and thanks to Dolby Atmos sound, it’s even better to listen to.
Released in August 2020, Samsung tablet deals have hit this latest version several times over the past year. That means you’ll find it $50-$80 off if you shop at the right time.
If you’re looking for the latest model, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is likely to be your first port of call. While the S7+ offers a bigger screen and better battery, you’re definitely paying for it with a suggested retail price starting at $849.99.
Meanwhile, the standard model costs just $649.99 – it’s still an expensive tablet, but you save $200 here and still get the same Snapdragon 865+ processor, memory and storage options, and camera specs. You drop the screen resolution, but 1600 x 2560 @ 120Hz with HDR10+ is certainly nothing to sniff at, even when running on an LED panel.
The cost reductions apply to the battery and screen, and if you’re not going to be using heavy media work every day, it’s worth considering the cheaper option here.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is actually heavier than a full-fledged model. However, this is not surprising, because the corners cut to achieve such a low price are obvious. While those looking for a powerful device to rival the iPad Pro should probably scroll back to the S6 and S7 models, if you’re looking for a simple tablet for browsing the web, streaming video and catching up on some email, the Tab S6 Lite does it in style.
You still opt for the spacious 10.4-inch display, long battery life, and grab the functionality of the S-Pen (with a free pointer to it no less), which puts this model above budget Tab A versions further down the page. Plus, you’re still getting this at a great price, but don’t expect this device to replace your main work machine.
Plus, Samsung’s tablet deals are hitting this cheaper model particularly well, which means you can save yourself some cash when there are sales.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A Series
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is an affordable tablet that still delivers solid performance with 3GB of RAM and an octa-core processor. The latest device in Samsung’s range of budget tablets is also lightweight and portable. Meanwhile, the wide 10.5-inch display and support for Dolby Atmos surround sound make it the perfect tablet for watching movies and TV shows. The Tab A8 also features an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera, along with an impressive 13-hour battery life.
It has a recommended price of $219 / £219 for the standard Wi-Fi version, but can often be found for under $200 / £200 at many retailers. This makes it around $50 / £50 more expensive compared to similarly sized cheap tablets from Amazon and Lenovo, but the design and performance improvements are well worth the extra investment in our eyes.
