Best Tablet Deals | PCMag


There are so many good reasons to own a tablet. Their larger screen make for a better viewing experience than a phone for your favorite streaming platform of choice. They’re also great for reading ebooks and Web browsing. Plus, you can do all the same things from checking email to playing high-end mobile games that rival some console offerings. And you don’t have to pay a ton, either. We’ve found some incredible deals on a range of tablets from just over $100.

The main difference between tablet models is the operating system — iPadOS, Android, or Windows are the three main choices. From there, consider the strength of the processor and amount of on-board memory depending on what you plan to use it for. Additional considerations include weight, storage capacity, camera quality, battery life, and connectivity. If you’re going to be using your tablet primarily for text, consider going with an ebook reader instead. They’re often cheaper than tablets, easier on your eyes, and some can serve as notepads as well as portable libraries.

For those looking for a tablet that fully replaces a laptop, many models can connect to a removable keyboard, but you could also opt for a true 2-in-1 device that combines a physical keyboard with the versatility of a touch screen. If you’re using your mobile device for resource-intensive activities such as photo and video editing or gaming, a traditional laptop is usually going to be a better deal. That said, tablets definitely excel in many areas, and here’s our top deals right now.

The first tablet from phone manufacturer OnePlus is surprisingly well-formed, with juicy components that integrate beautifully with your phone. In our review, we praised the “gorgeous design, big, vibrant screen and punchy speakers,” saying that it’s competitive with the iPad in terms of build quality and performance. The OnePlus Pad is built around a Dimensity 9000 CPU that delivers speedy response, the 2800 x 2000 display has a 144Hz refresh rate and it charges by USB-C. This is one of the bigger price drops we’ve seen on it in some time.

We had a lot of great things to say about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ in our review, noting that “in part to its premium materials and design, the Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ provides a high-end experience that belies its comparatively reasonable price.” It earned an Editors’ Choice award for solid performance, epic battery life and the included S Pen stylus, which pairs with Samsung’s productivity apps to make the unit easier to use for work or play. $70 off is a solid price cut for this recent release.
