Tablets come in all shapes and sizes, and whether you want a budget-friendly device or a top-of-the-line model, you may find what you’re looking for below. There’s always high demand for discounts on tablets because of their larger screens compared to smartphones and better portability compared to laptops, so if you see an offer that you like, don’t hesitate — push through with the purchase as soon as you can, as some of bargains are only available for an extremely limited time.

If you need an Android tablet for simple tasks like browsing the internet and watching streaming shows, the affordable Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite may be enough for you. Its 8.7-inch screen is decent with WXGA+ resolution, while maintaining portability so you can easily hold the tablet in one hand. Its internal storage is limited at 32GB, but you can expand it by up to 1TB using a microSD card. For the clumsy ones, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is perfect for you because it’s protected by a sturdy metal frame.

The Amazon Fire Max 11 is perfect for those who are heavily invested in the Amazon ecosystem, including Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Music, and Alexa, but it’s more than just a portal to these services. It’s Amazon’s most powerful tablet so far with an octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM, and while it features an 11-inch screen with 2000 x 1200 resolution, it’s still thin and light with its sleek aluminum design. The Amazon Fire Max 11 also offers a battery life of up to 14 hours on a single charge, and an internal storage of 64GB that may be increased to up to 1TB through its microSD card slot.

The 10th-generation Apple iPad, the latest model of Apple’s entry-level tablet, is highlighted in our list of the best iPads as the top mid-range iPad because of its modern design, the switch to a USB-C port, and the performance provided by Apple’s A14 chip. Its 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display is simply gorgeous even under sunlight, and it comes with Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint recognition technology to prevent other people from accessing the tablet.
