Android tablets have a tough time competing at the high end; iPads more or less single-handedly dominate that space. But if you're looking to spend a couple hundred bucks on something to watch Netflix in bed, you're probably not shopping Apple. You're probably looking for something like Samsung's latest budget tablet, the Galaxy Tab A7: it's cheap, it's got a nice screen and speakers, and the battery lasts for days. There's not a lot to dislike here.
Samsung more or less dominates the high-end Android tablet space with its Tab S series, and while they're not as pricey as, say, an iPad Pro, they're not exactly cheap, either. If you've been hemming and hawing about picking one up, here's a deal you'll be interested to hear about: today, Samsung is offering $130 off both the Tab S7 and Tab S7+, plus a free pair of Galaxy Buds Pro with either.
Unlike some of the past events, this year's Prime Day held some pretty solid deals. If you still haven't gotten your fill of brand new gadgets — or you aren't a Prime member and missed out on the exclusive sales in the first place — your patience has paid off. Samsung's super-sized Galaxy Tab S7+ is back on sale at Amazon, and it's even cheaper than it was earlier this week.
The market for Android tablets isn't all that strong, but Samsung's Tab series bucks the trend. Last year's Tab S7 delivered an excellent premium experience, while the Tab S7+ took Apple's iPad Pro head-on. If you've been eagerly awaiting successors to both of those tablets, a new leak suggests that this year's lineup might include three new models, each with a bigger display than the last.
Prime Day 2021 is almost over, but that doesn't mean the deals have dried up completely — there's still a few hours to save big on all kinds of tech goodies. Here are 15 of our favorite deals you can still score right now.
Samsung is the only manufacturer interested in producing high-end Android tablets, but last year, the company added a slightly cheaper option to its Tab S lineup. The Galaxy Tab S5e retained the high-quality AMOLED screen and thin design of Samsung's highest-end models, but lacked the Tab S4's stylus support (and still cost over $400). This time around, Samsung is trying something different with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
Despite its faults, the new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite might be the strongest iPad competitor Samsung has ever produced. The hardware won't blow you away, and it doesn't have all the features of the more expensive Tab S6, but it's a full-fledged tablet with an included S Pen stylus for $350 — only $20 more than the cheapest iPad, not including the $100 Apple Pencil.
I love kickstands. Everything should have kickstands, and the fact that everything doesn't is a damn tragedy. That's especially true for tablets, little slabs of fragile glass that are designed for media consumption. Despite some sterling work from Microsoft, Lenovo, and (occasionally) Samsung, tablets with kickstands as an integral part of their design are still rare. But with this cheap add-on from Moft, you can give almost any tablet the kickstand it deserves.
