Tablets are quintessential if phones are too small and laptops are too big for your needs. If you want to upgrade your current tablet to the best — for less, then choice abounds for Android and Apple-powered tablet options this holiday shopping season.
The Black Friday deals have started early so we have compiled a list of the best value offerings that you can get your hands on today.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is an 11-inch tablet that comes bundled with a stylus — the S Pen. It’s one of Samsung’s latest offerings so you can expect flagship-tier specs, including up to 512GB of storage, a dual-camera setup, 120Hz refresh rate, and super fast charging. Grab this deal and save $150.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite has an 8.7-inch screen and promises up to 13 hours of battery life — depending on your usage. For the price, it’s a no-frills tablet that provides the best of Samsung’s OneUI software and Android 11. On sale for $119.99 ($40 off), Amazon will throw in a bonus of two months of YouTube premium too.
The latest-gen iPad Pro launched earlier this year and has proven to be a reliable and portable work machine. I think the 11-inch model is the perfect tablet size and sits comfortably in the hands thanks to the slim bezels. The iPad Pro is currently on sale at Best Buy for $749.99 ($50 off) and comes with 128GB of internal storage, though you can always opt into an iCloud subscription if you crave more.
Currently being offered with a $125 discount, the Fire HD 10 tablet bundle includes a Bluetooth keyboard, a detachable case, and a 12-month subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal edition. It’s promised to deliver over 400 hours of battery life, but your usage will be the ultimate determiner. This 10.1-inch tablet gives you all the productivity tools you need for school or work.
An e-reader makes for the perfect gift to kindle any bookworm’s heart. Amazon’s infamous Kindle brand produces excellent e-readers that won’t break the bank. The original Kindle is currently on sale at Amazon for $49.99 ($40 off) and comes with 4GB of memory for reading on and offline.
The Fire HD 8 Kids tablet is the vehicle of choice for kids’ learning, gaming, and entertainment. I recommend this tablet for its harmonious blend of hardware and software — both of which take into account the end-user: children! For starters, the tablet has a rugged, soft-touch design which makes it easy to carry, and most importantly, shatter-proof. Power it on and you’re welcomed with an interface that’s packed with kids games, learning modules, and other digital activities to keep them busy. Buy one now for just $69.99 ($70 off).
Coopers produces a variety of entry-level Android tablets including this offering. For the $88 price tag, I recommend it for the long-lasting 6,000mAH battery, large 10-inch screen, and Android operating system — meaning you can download and use apps from Google’s Play Store. It connects to Wi-Fi only (no SIM card in this version), but with a $40 off deal, the tablet makes for a great secondary option or for kids.
