If you need a tablet, here we leave you a very good selection from Samsung.
Samsung is a manufacturer that, ever since it began to succeed with the first phones in the Galaxy S family and when the first iPad models began to dominate the market, has rethought the idea of launching Android tablets to gain some ground. Apple’s iPad is the king of tablets overall, but Samsung is currently the best Android tablet maker we can recommend.
The Korean manufacturer’s tablets are better every year, more complete, and adapted to a wider range of budgets and audiences. We wanted to bring together some of the most recent tablets, others that have achieved the best numbers throughout history and that continue to sell in the most popular stores.

What is the best Samsung tablet?
It is difficult to choose a single model since it depends on the use that is going to be given to it and the needs of each one. A user who requires a tablet to browse and watch series is not the same as another someone who is dedicated to editing professional images in their workplace as a photographer.
In this sense, we could adjust to two models: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is a simple model, but it has great features for basic use. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ can meet the expectations of any editing professional, as it has great power, a generous and high-performance screen, and a long-lasting battery. It is neither the top like the ‘Ultra’ nor the more ‘basic’ Galaxy Tab S8 with a smaller screen.
What is the best tablet brand?
Currently, the thing is between Apple and Samsung, although there are companies like Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, or Realme that have very interesting models on the market. Many of them, or the vast majority, are intended for somewhat more basic use, such as the Galaxy Tab A8 or the iPad Mini. At the top, in the top of tablets, the best is undoubtedly the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
