The Galaxy Tab A8 is our favorite affordable tablet because it smartly balances quality construction and reliable specs with good old-fashioned bang for the buck, even when there's no discount involved. The 10.5-inch display may be small (and it's not AMOLED), but you're getting an aluminum and glass build, tons of battery life, expandable storage up to 1TB, and even Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos support. In other words, if you want an Android tablet that won't break the bank, the Galaxy Tab A8 is the perfect choice, especially when you pair it with a 43% price drop.
