Despite the fact that Google is making a much more concerted effort to improve the experience, Android tablets are still in a state of flux. There are some really great options out there, but Samsung remains at the top of the mountain. 

Take the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, for example, which sports a massive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display complete with a 120Hz refresh rate. Powering this behemoth is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 paired with up to an incredible 16GB of RAM and 512GB of expandable storage. 

Despite easily being the best Android tablet for productivity, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra hasn't been an automatic recommendation. The reason being is that Samsung went a bit overboard with pricing, as the base model with 128GB of storage retails for $1,099. But thanks to some early Cyber Monday deals, Samsung and Best Buy are knocking hundreds on each different model, coming in as low as $399 (opens in new tab) for the base model.
