There's no denying that Apple's iPad generally provides a better tablet experience than Android tablets, since most iOS apps are actually designed for large screens, but there are still plenty of reasons why you might still want to go with an Android device — no dealing with two ecosystems, exclusive software, and so on. Now you can pick up the 256GB version of Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 for $599.99, a savings of $100 from the usual price.

Samsung’s recent efforts to proactively release Android 10 to its flagship handsets left us impressed, considering the Korean brand was notorious for its protracted release schedules not too long ago. So far, at least, it's stuck to the Android 10 rollout roadmap that the company disclosed in late November. After updating many of its recent smartphones, Samsung is now also attending to its tablet range, starting with the 2019 flagship. A number of user reports from Germany have surfaced, revealing that the Galaxy Tab S6 is receiving the Android 10 update, in line with its scheduled April release.
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.
It's funny to think that at one point, not too long ago, Samsung was known mainly as one manufacturer among many, trying to break into the smartphone market. Samsung has since become a household name that produces more products than many of us will ever realize. Amazon is now offering savings of 20% or more on select Samsung Chromebooks, tablets, and desktop monitors during its Deal of the Day.
Like most everybody else, Samsung is kicking off the holiday sales a little early with numerous deals on its popular phones, wearables, and other electronic gadgets. The trade-in promotion on the Galaxy S10 and Note10 are especially nice as long as the phone you're trading is relatively new. More Samsung deals are available from Walmart, Costco, and Best Buy.
The Galaxy Tab S6 is among the top options when it comes to Android tablets. Being the best also means it's not cheap, as the 128GB version typically sells for $650, while the 256GB model costs $729. Thankfully, you can save $100 on both versions on Amazon and receive a free $50 gift card with your purchase.
It's been a bit of a wait, but Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6, announced all the way back at the end of July, is now available in stores and online for purchase, no pre-order necessary. The unlocked version of the Galaxy A50 and new Galaxy Watch Active2 can also be pre-ordered starting today — and you get a few promotional perks if you do.
If you're on the market for a good Android tablet, Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6, which is probably one of the best ones around, is currently down to just $430 at Best Buy. This is a significant markdown for a product that was just released, as it's $300 less than the MSRP.
Android tablets have become sort of a joke in the tech sphere — there are no good apps is the refrain. And, well, that's sort of true: Android's tablet applications generally aren't as robust as those available on other platforms. Even so, tablets as a form factor are unparalleled for casual media consumption, and if Android is your operating system of choice (and since you're reading this, I'll guess that it is), there are plenty of interesting hardware choices.
Samsung finally announced its latest flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6, at the end of last month. It's fairly expensive at its starting price of $649, but it has nearly every imaginable feature. It turns out one of those features is HDR10+ certification, making the Tab S6 the first tablet ever to support that standard.
