If you want an all-round solid tablet that is easier on the wallet than an Apple iPad, then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8. This Android device does lack some of the bells and whistles of its biggest rivals, and the UI isn’t quite as slick, but it’s arguably the best tablet for most people balancing features, performance and price into an attractive overall package. 

The Galaxy Tab S8 features an 11-inch Full HD (2560 x 1600) 120Hz display, which should be more than good enough for watching videos and playing games. Plus, the tablet weighs just 1.1 pounds, making it the lightest and smallest of Samsung's new tablets. Its thin bezels should help whatever you're watching pop, and the 12MP front-facing camera and three microphones ensure you’ll look and sound your best during business or personal calls.

A Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU powers the entire line of Galaxy Tab S8 tablets. They also all run on Android 12. This means that, in terms of performance, the Tab S8 is pretty much on par with the Tab S8 Plus and Ultra. The value of the Plus really comes from it’s 12.4-inch AMOLED screen and 5G connectivity features. The bigger gift card is just a sweetener.
