If you need a simple tablet for everyday convenience, this super cheap Samsung Galaxy Tab 8 is a great option. It’s only $200 right now because of a $30 discount in Best Buy’s tablet deals. This is a great tablet for watching movies and shows in particular. You can read more about it below, then head over to the sale before it ends.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8

One of the reasons why we’ve named the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 as the best midrange Android tablet in our roundup of the best Android tablets is its clear and bright screen. At 10.5 inches and Full HD resolution, the device will provide an enjoyable viewing experience when you’re catching up on shows and binging movies on on your favorite streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Their apps are all available for download on the Google Play Store, with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 running on Android 11 out of the box but available to upgrade to Android 13.

A large screen won’t matter if the tablet’s performance is slow, but that’s not the case with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8. It’s equipped with the Unisoc T618 processor and 3GB of RAM, which are not on the level of the specifications of high-end tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus but enough for watching streaming videos, browsing the internet, and checking social media. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 only has 32GB of onboard storage, but you can expand it by up to 1TB using a microSD card if you need the extra space.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 isn’t among the best tablets in the market, but its definitely a solid purchase if you’ll use it mostly for watching videos. Best Buy is selling the device for $200 instead of its sticker price of $230, but you need to complete the transaction right now if you want to get the tablet with this $30 discount. It’s not much of a price cut, but it will provide even more value to your purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8.

Why you should buy the Apple iPhone 12
The Apple iPhone 12 isn't the latest model the popular smartphone -- it's the Apple iPhone 14, and very soon, it will be the Apple iPhone 15. However, that doesn't mean that the iPhone 12 is no longer a worthy purchase, as Apple's A14 Bionic chip still provides smooth performance by today's standards. It ships with iOS 14 pre-installed, but you can update it to iOS 17 so that you can enjoy all of the features of the newest version of the operating system.

Some tablet deals slash the prices of high-end models, but some make already affordable options even cheaper. Here's an example of the latter -- the Onn 7-inch tablet, originally priced at $59, is down even further to just $49. The $10 in savings isn't much, but you might as well take it if you're only planning to get a tablet for basic functions. There's a chance that stocks run out quick though, so you'll have to proceed with the purchase quickly if you think this is perfect as your next device.

The affordable but dependable Onn 7-inch tablet may already be enough for you, with its 2.0 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. It's also equipped with a 7-inch LCD touchscreen with 1024 x 600 resolution, which isn't the sharpest display but still decent considering the tablet's price.
