The best thing about a tablet is that it’s so much more than just a big smartphone. If you pair wireless peripherals with one, like a Bluetooth keyboard, you can turn it into a laptop or more powerful computing device. That’s why it’s always good to check out all of the iPad deals and Samsung Galaxy Tab deals that are available, two of the best types of tablets out there.
If the talk about tablet deals piques your interest, you might be happy to know that Amazon is currently hosting discounts on a few different models. The 2020 Apple iPad 10.2-inch is available for $395, which is $34 off the full price. Alternatively, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is $180, which is $50 off the full price. You can find out more about those deals below.
If you’re wondering how the 2020 iPad stacks up against the previous generation models, you can read our iPad (2020) vs. iPad (2019) feature. The overall winner was the 2020 version, and our Simon Chandler praised the newer and much faster processor in the upgraded model.
In short, you get a gorgeous 10.2-inch Retina touchscreen display, Apple’s A12 Bionic chip with neural engine support, an 8MP back camera, a 1.2MP front camera with FaceTime HD support, and stereo speakers that sound great. Amazon is currently offering the Wi-Fi-only 128GB model for $34 off the usual $430 price, which brings the price to $395 with free shipping. Both space gray and the silver models are on sale, so remember to choose your preferred color!
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is a slim and stylish Android tablet, running Android Q. It features a 10.4-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 (WUXGA+). Inside is a Samsung Exynos 9611 octa-core processor, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. It’s lean, it’s mean, and it’s a lot of fun to use. The Galaxy Tab A7 earned our “Best Midrange Android Tablet” award in the Best Android Tablets for 2021 feature.
Amazon is also offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 for $50 off the full price of $230. That brings the total to $180 with free shipping and free returns for Prime members. Gold, gray, and silver are all on sale!
