There will be high demand for tablet deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Offers involving Apple’s iPad Mini will surely generate a lot of buzz, but Samsung Galaxy Tab deals should also be on your radar. If you are interested, you don’t even have to wait until November 27, as Walmart is currently selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 with a $41 discount to take its price down to $109 from $150.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is often compared with the 7.9-inch fifth-generation iPad Mini due to their display sizes, as Samsung’s tablet features an 8-inch screen. It is a lightweight device that is comfortable to use at home, at the office, or while on the go, for reading documents, watching videos, and playing games. The tablet is also powered by a quad-core processor, and is expected to support the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 11.
If you are concerned about its battery life, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 promises up to 13 hours of use on a single charge with its 5,100mAh battery. This means that if you are using the tablet during your commute or while out in the field, you will likely be able to plug it in before you run out of juice.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A’s internal storage is 32GB, which is half the starting storage for the iPad Mini at 64GB. However, unlike Apple’s tablet, you can use a microSD card to expand its memory by up to 512GB, which means that you can have much more data and content within the tablet without having to resort to cloud storage.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is not as popular as Apple’s iPad Mini, but it is a perfectly fine choice for a tablet, especially if you’re on a budget. With the iPad Mini coming in with a starting price of $399, Samsung’s 8-inch counterpart looks good at its original price of $150. However, it is currently on sale for $109, representing a $41 discount, in an offer that’s hard to ignore. If you are looking for a serviceable tablet, you should click on that Buy Now button as soon as you can, especially since there’s no assurance that there will be a better deal on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
For those that are between these two devices can always wait until the Black Friday iPad deals to make a final decision.
