While it’s not the newest Galaxy tablet anymore with the release of its FE, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 Plus are two of the highest-quality Android slates on the market. Right now, you can save $180 on the base 11-inch model and pick up one of the best Android tablets money can buy for only $499.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
If you need one of the most powerful tablets Samsung offers, but don’t need the latest from the tech giant, then you can’t go wrong with the Galaxy Tab S6. It could act as a laptop replacement, with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage running on a Snapdragon 855 processor. The Galaxy Tab S6 also has an upgraded S Pen that magnetically attaches and offers Bluetooth control of numerous functions.
The 128GB version of the Galaxy Tab S6 (renewed) is on sale on Amazon right now at just $389.48 ($256 off). So if you don’t need the newest tablet from Samsung, the Tab S6 is sure to fulfill all the boxes you’ll need for your tablet needs.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a powerful platform, but not every user needs the complete specifications. That’s just where the Tab S6 Lite steps in — an S Pen is still included, and the screen is still a vibrant 10.4-inch display, but the price is much easier to handle. Up to 13 hours of battery life and Dolby Atmos speakers tuned by AKG help to flesh out the specs, and the stylish color options are sure to match your current gear.
Samsung currently has it for $274.99 ($75 off) with a trade-in — a good deal for a late 2020 tablet. If you want more buying options, Amazon also has the 128GB variant of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite for $421 ($8 off) or renewed for $303.98 ($126 off)
Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is a year newer than the Tab S4, and it’s actually the more affordable device between the two. Not only does it ship with Android 9 Pie on board, but it also offers up to 14 hours of battery life. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is also one of the thinnest and lightest tablets in the range, weighing less than one pound.
As the name suggests, the Tab Active 2 is a smart choice if you take your tablet on adventures. The Tab Active 2 is a bit old as far as specs go, with Android 9 Pie pre-installed and just 3GB of RAM. However, the rubber case and durable design make it a good option if you need a rugged tablet for working outdoors. If you’re looking to pick one up, Amazon has you covered. It’s currently just $303.75 ($200 off) — a great deal for those who need a more rugged tablet in their life.

The 10.4-inch Galaxy Tab A is the larger sibling to the 8-inch model in pretty much every way. Not only is the screen larger, but it comes with a bigger battery. As a result, it’s a great choice for a first tablet if you don’t want to worry when something happens to it. It’s on sale right now for $279.79 on Amazon, as is the Lite model for $149.99 ($10 off).
If you want a tablet that nears the Tab S line in terms of size but you don’t need the RAM or storage, the 8-inch Tab A is perfect. It comes with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage to help you stay productive. Your favorite Netflix shows and YouTube videos will even sound great with four Dolby Atmos speakers. It’s a great budget tablet covering all of the essentials and sold on Amazon for $159.99 ($40 off). That’s for the 64GB model, but the 32GB tablet is down to just $99.99 ($50 off) from Best Buy.
The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab A is your best bet if you want to stay connected to LTE wherever you go. It comes GSM unlocked with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
