The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is the middle child of the revised Galaxy Tab S series.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, S8 Plus, and S8 Ultra
Eric Zeman / Android Authority
The long-awaited Galaxy Tab S8 models have arrived, and all three include Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets. There are no Exynos 2200 models, so wherever you live, you’ll get the Snapdragon. That chip should give this edition a healthy processing power boost over the outgoing duo. You’ll also notice the absence of a headphone jack, even on the base Galaxy Tab S8, but all three feature 45W charging via a USB-C 3.2 port and a bundled S Pen.
As for capture and playback, a 13MP primary camera at the rear with a supporting 6MP ultrawide is standard across the board. Four AKG-tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos support are also present on each.

The previous-generation tablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE, isn’t just great to look at. It offers powerful productivity software, excellent battery life, and even impressive speakers — far from given on a tablet, and very handy for those box-set binges. The overall power and the cameras aren’t everything they could be, but overall it’s an excellent device.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and S6 Lite
If you need one of the most powerful tablets Samsung offers, but don’t need the latest from the tech giant, then you can’t go wrong with the Galaxy Tab S6. It could act as a laptop replacement, with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage running on a Snapdragon 855 processor. The Galaxy Tab S6 also has an upgraded S Pen that magnetically attaches and offers Bluetooth control of numerous functions.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a powerful platform, but not every user needs the complete specifications. That’s just where the Tab S6 Lite steps in — an S Pen is still included, and the screen is still a vibrant 10.4-inch display, but the price is much easier to handle. Up to 13 hours of battery life and Dolby Atmos speakers tuned by AKG help to flesh out the specs, and the stylish color options are sure to match your current gear.

The Galaxy Tab A8 is the new kid on the block for the Galaxy A range. Head to the featured deal section above for more on that. But if you’re interested in the alternative Tab A models then you have some excellent budget options.
If you want a tablet that nears the Tab S line in terms of size but you don’t need the RAM or storage, the 8-inch Tab A is perfect. It comes with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage to help you stay productive. Your favorite Netflix shows and YouTube videos will even sound great with four Dolby Atmos speakers.

The 10.4-inch Galaxy Tab A is the larger sibling to the 8-inch model in pretty much every way. Not only is the screen larger, but it comes with a bigger battery. As a result, it’s a great choice for a first tablet if you don’t want to worry when something happens to it.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is another affordable option that boasts excellent design and performance for the money.
