There aren't a ton of great Android tablets options out there, but one of the best is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. The Tab S3 includes the S Pen along with the stylish hardware we've all come to expect from Samsung.

You can get the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 for just $450 on Amazon, and use the $50 in savings to buy a functional cover for your tablet that both protects and props it up to assist with productivity or watching Netflix. Here are your best case options for the Galaxy Tab S3.

Samsung Keyboard Cover

We'll start with Samsung's keyboard accessory for its newest tablet. Offering protection as well as functionality, this case includes Samsung's latest keyboard, featuring chiclet-style keys, along with intuitive POGO pin connectors, which let you set up your tablet in keyboard mode right quick.

Samsung offers a fairly standard look for this keyboard case, featuring a white folding back panel that provides protection for your tablet, while the keyboard is made of gray, physical keys.

While the Galaxy Tab S3 might not be enough to fully replace the functionality of a laptop, this stylish and functional keyboard will let you do more on the go. If adding a keyboard to your tablet is important to you, this is your best option.
