The confusingly named 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab A8, released after a lengthy wait just last month, is… certainly not the best Samsung tablet money can buy right now. Unless, of course, you only have a couple hundred bucks to spend on a new Android-based slate with a respectable list of features, in which case this reasonably well-equipped mid-ranger can be a great alternative to Amazon’s popular Fire HD 10 and HD 10 Plus.
Even better, the retailer is selling a 128GB storage variant with 4 gigs of RAM also on deck at $80 under its regular price of $329.99 while charging $219.99 instead of $279.99 for a 4GB memory-packing model with 64 gigs of local digital hoarding room.
In addition to an almost surprisingly sleek design for such an affordable device and a large 10.5-inch screen with a more than decent resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, the latest Galaxy Tab A8 generation also has a grand total of four speakers enhanced with Dolby Atmos surround sound technology going for it, as well as fast 15W charging capabilities and a handy side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
By no means what we’d conventionally call a powerhouse, the budget-friendly tab does come with an octa-core processor under the hood too, promising to satisfy your portable entertainment needs with ease.
