Samsung is one of the few manufacturers still making Android tablets, and the company's latest offering looks really nice. The Galaxy Tab A7 has a slim and symmetrical design, Dolby Atmos surround sound, and a plentiful 7,040mAh battery. It only launched earlier this month, but the device is already on sale for just $169.99 from Amazon and Walmart — a full $60 off.
Android tablets might have long become passé, but there are people out there that want them. Some of those people might not even want to turn to the market's most prolific maker of Android tablets, Samsung, and go along with its overbearing experience. For them, Lenovo is presenting two alternatives for the holiday season — a refreshed Tab M10 HD (2nd Gen) and the all-new Tab P11 Pro 2-in-1.
There's a lot that Spotify can improve in its app's experience, but the most glaring issue for anyone using a larger-screened Android device was the lack of any interface optimization. The phone UI simply stretched to fill the screen, with tiny touch targets and no special consideration given to the larger screen estate. That's changed now as Spotify began rolling out a new tablet-optimized design on Android.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is, as our own Corbin put it in his review, the Android tablet to beat. It's well built, with a nice display, an included stylus, and a very capable battery. If that sounds like something you'd be into, you can pick one up for $50 off today from a number of retailers.

We're now just a couple of hours away from Samsung's Note20 Unpacked livestream. It'll likely bring us many mentions of the word "innovation," a tour of the company's electronics headquarters, a bunch of celebrity cameos, and, oh yes, new smartphones, a new tablet, and a new smartwatch. You can watch the event as it happens right here, starting at 7 a.m. PDT (10 a.m. EDT).
At next week's Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event, Samsung is expected to take the wraps off a total of five devices, which includes its new flagship tablet range. The Galaxy Tab S7 for 2020 is rumored to be accompanied by a bigger Plus model, and we’ve already heard a lot about the two. But the latest WinFuture report gives away nearly everything about the two slates. What’s most surprising here is that Samsung looks set to downgrade the standard model’s screen by using LCD technology instead of keeping the AMOLED from last year.
Google hasn't had much of an interest in Android tablets since the days of the Motorola XOOM and Android Honeycomb. As a result, most of the company's apps aren't designed with tablets in mind, and third-party applications have largely followed suit. Sure, Android tablets can technically run all Android apps, but many of them have stretched-out layouts that were intended for 6-inch screens. Some even force a portrait orientation (Google Tasks, I'm looking at you).
Samsung remains the sole Android manufacturer really trying to take on the iPad these days, and it looks like the company is not lowering the effort it's putting into its Tab S series. After we've already seen first renders of the Galaxy Tab S7+ and got some details on a 12.4-inch screen and the dimensions, SamMobile now provides an almost complete overview of the rest of the tablet's hardware specifications.
