A bunch of Galaxy phone users got a bit of a head start on the December 2020 security patch when Samsung released the update two weeks ahead of schedule. While that update was meant for some international beta users testing out One UI 3.0, Samsung kick-started the stable rollout of the latest patch in the US at the beginning of the month. The first device to get bumped to the December 2020 level was Verizon’s Galaxy S20 FE, most recently followed by the Tab S6, Tab S4, and the S8 Active.
Samsung has been pretty quick to update their devices with the latest security patches in the past couple of years, and it looks like not much is going to change for the month of September. The company is continuing to update its lineup of phones from the past few years, starting with the Exynos Galaxy Note9.
Samsung may have turned things around when it comes to updating its phones, but sadly Samsung's tablets were left behind until more recently. Painfully late, Samsung started updating the Tab S6 last month, and now the Tab S4 and S5e are receiving the same treatment.
As it does for phones, Samsung offers a wide selection of tablets to meet the needs of different people: young kids, streaming media aficionados, and on-the-go working professionals. Amazon has posted a pretty decent selection of various Samsung tablets for sale today with discounts starting from 14% and up to 33% off. Check them out below.
Among Android tablet manufacturers, few make premium tablets as nice as the Galaxy Tab S series from Samsung. If you had decided to skip out on the Galaxy Tab S4 earlier due to its high price, then you may want to take a look again. Several stores — Samsung, Dell, Amazon, and Best Buy — are selling the WiFi 64GB Galaxy Tab S4 at its lowest price ever of $450, 31% off its MSRP.
Most Android tablets on the market are either average at best or overpriced. Although the Galaxy Tab S4 might be one of the top contenders around, its initial MSRP was relatively steep, at $650 for the 64GB variant or $750 for the 128GB version. However, thanks to a deal on Amazon, you can save $152 on both versions, making the tablet a much more interesting bargain. Both storage options are on sale, down to $498 and $598, which is among the lowest prices they've been.
I am weirdly zealous about separating my work life from my personal life. My sanity, such as it is, depends upon not having anxieties about my job bleed into my home life, and keeping the chaos and distractions of my personal, family, and creative life from disrupting my work time. After over a decade of almost exclusively working from home, I’ve put a lot of thought and effort into how I can configure the various components of my Google-powered digital life in a way that is efficient and deliberate rather than stressful and schizophrenic.
But as more aspects of our lives become enveloped by the technological, the easier it is for the demands of our jobs to shove their way into our hours off the clock.
The Galaxy Tab S4 is Samsung's flagship tablet, and it's one of the best Android slabs on the market. International models started receiving their Android 9 Pie updates a couple of weeks ago, and it's now the US Wi-Fi (SM-T830) version's turn.
One of the last bastions of the dying Android tablet market, Samsung's excellent-but-overpriced Galaxy Tab S4, is currently on sale over at Best Buy. Though at first glance, the deal is just a respectable $100 savings, it's the student discount that really shines. Assuming you sign up, you can get an additional $100 off the Tab S4, meaning that you'll only need to fork over $449.99.
