Android tablets aren't as well regarded as iPads but there are many great slates out there not made by Apple. One of these is the OnePlus Pad, which currently tops our best Android tablets list. If you're in the market for a non-Apple tablet, you can now get the OnePlus Pad for a reduced price.

The OnePlus Pad is on sale at Amazon for $399. That's $80 off and one of the best tablet sales we've seen. We haven't seen the price drop this low since last year's Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday. This OnePlus Pad deal probably won't last long so you might want to take grab this tablet now before it's too late. (For more deals, check out our guide to the best Presidents Day sales right now).

The OnePlus Pad is one of our favorite Android tablets. We like this tablet's speedy Dimensity 9000 CPU, 13-hour battery life, 128GB storage and sharp 11.6-inch (2800 x 2000) 144Hz display. You also get 13MP rear and 8MP front cameras and USB-C charging. Normally nearly $500, it's currently $399 ($80 off) and at its lowest price ever. Simply put, it's the best Android tablet you can buy.

In my OnePlus Pad review, I said this is an Android tablet worth getting excited about. It has a distinctive design thanks to its huge 13MP camera that's centered along the top rear. Not only does this camera give the tablet a unique appearance, but it can snap quality photos. The 8MP front camera is also great and ensures you look your best during video calls (or if you're inclined to take selfies).

The 11.6-inch 144Hz display makes watching videos a joy. Reading ebooks and digital comics is also enjoyable thanks to the sharp (and unusual) 2,800 x 2,000 resolution. OnePlus says the screen's 7:5 aspect ratio lets you see more lines of an ebook and more rows in a spreadsheet on the display, but it's a pretty minimal difference, so it's not too hard to adjust to. Apps and games run smoothly thanks to the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 9000 CPU and robust Android 13 OS. On top of that, it also has phenomenal battery life, lasting well over 13 hours in our testing.

As awesome as this tablet is, there are some drawbacks. The speakers are decent enough for watching videos or listening to podcasts. That said, music can often sound messy and indistinct at medium volumes.

Also note that OnePlus are offering 50% off accessories when you buy the OnePlus Pad. These sales include the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 for $89, and the excellent OnePlus Stylo and OnePlus Magnetic Keyboard we tested in our OnePlus Pad review. They're on sale for $49 and $74 respectively when purchased with the tablet. And if you have an older tablet to trade-in, you can get up to $540 in trade-in credit at OnePlus.

Even if it's not ideal for listening to music, the OnePlus Pad is arguably the best Android tablet for the money. Take advantage of this deal while it lasts.

    What a useless review, missing the most important aspects when using it like:
    1. How much memory does it have?
    2. Does it support micro SD card?
    3. Screen's aspect ratio?
