As things stand, Samsung is your best bet if you're looking to buy an Android tablet. The Galaxy Tab A7 makes for one of the most compelling choices in the budget segment. However, if you want to save even more money and don't mind slightly lesser specs, you may want to wait for Samsung to announce a cheaper variant in the coming months — the Tab A7 Lite.
One UI 3.1 has been rolling out to older Galaxy devices quickly in the last few months. Despite only being an incremental upgrade over 3.0, it carries over several useful features from the Galaxy S21 to its older siblings. Over the last few weeks, One UI 3.1 has arrived for several mid-range devices and some T-Mobile variants.
Apple announced a bunch of new stuff today at its spring event, including several new iPad models. As Android fans, we're more than a little jealous — our ecosystem of choice just doesn't have a go-to option the way Apple's does. But that's not to say we're without options altogether. We actually think iPads are great, but if you want a bigger portable screen without having to learn a new OS's quirks, here are some of the best picks on our side of the wall.
It can be tough to find an Android tablet worth buying today. There's plenty of budget offerings from companies like Amazon, Lenovo, and even Walmart, but if you want the best of the bunch, Samsung is the brand for you. Today only, you can save up to 51% on a solid selection of its refurbished tablets at Woot.
Samsung checked a lot of right boxes to make the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite one of our favorite affordable tablets from last year. A new leak suggests that the company is working on its follow-up, allegedly named Galaxy Tab S7 Lite, along with a lite version of its already cheap Galaxy Tab A7. Both these tablets are expected to be out this summer.
Samsung released its newest budget Android tablet last month, the Tab A7. It was already a good deal when it launched at $230 for 32GB storage, but now you can buy the upgraded 64GB model for just $199.99.
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.
Samsung already spent enough time talking about $400 smartwatches, $650 tablets, $1,300 slabs last month. Just yesterday, it brought out another $2,000 folding phablet. But the company knows that top-line items a good holiday season does not make. So, we're now looking at the Galaxy Fit2, Galaxy Tab A7, and Galaxy A42 5G — functional pieces of tech for less cash.
