We at AP think that the best tablet on the market is *gasp* the iPad, but if you really want to stick with the Android ecosystem, it's hard to go wrong with Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. Already fairly priced at its MSRP of $349.99, this $279.99 deal represents an all-time low price for this tablet.
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.
Good Android tablets are far and few between, but the new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from Samsung is one of the better ones out there. Stickering at $349.99, the 64GB Tab S6 Lite is currently down to $299.99 with a Samsung Book Cover ($69.99 value) included. The only catch is that you need to be a Costco member to take advantage of this deal.
Samsung is one of the few companies that still produce quality Android tablets. The new Tab S6 Lite isn't quite high-end, but it still strikes a good balance between features and price, if buying an iPad is completely out of the question. Its already reasonable price fell $20 to $330 just last week, and now it's down another $10 to a very appealing $320. The 128GB version is $30 off, too.
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.
Samsung is one of the few major Android OEMs still bothering to make tablets, and it makes a lot of them. The company had filled one of the few gaps in its lineup today with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. This tablet isn't as powerful as the Tab S6, but it still has the S Pen stylus.
Samsung's tablet lineup is almost as convoluted as its smartphone strategy. The Galaxy Tab S6 is at the top, with the budget Tab S5e dropping pen support and going with a cheaper processor, but leaks for a new Tab S6 Lite started popping up last month. Now the tablet is official, though pricing and availability details are still unknown.
Samsung is one of the few big names in Android keeping the drumbeat alive for decently powerful tablets. Its Galaxy Tab S series keeps up specs-wise with many recent phones. But what if you don't need all that power, just a big screen that can play movies beautifully and let you draw on the screen? There's now word of such a device that will apparently act as a follow-up to last summer's Galaxy Tab S6.
