There’s much more to a tablet than just its display, but it’s hard to deny an important role that particular spec plays. The Galaxy Tab S7 has one of the most impressive displays on any device we’ve used. It’s able to get highly bright and even bears support for Samsung’s S Pen stylus. Of course, the Tab S7 also packs powerful specs elsewhere, and you can even buy a 5G-capable variant for a bit more money.
If you want to go the extra mile, Samsung’s more extensive and pricier Galaxy Tab S7+ is an even more powerful choice. You’ll trade the Tab S7’s LCD for an AMOLED one and gain quad speakers and a larger battery. Both tablets feature the same Snapdragon 865+ processor and S Pen stylus.
For the absolute best value, though, Amazon’s Fire HD 8 is an unbeatable offering. The specs are nothing to write home about, but performance is surprisingly good, and you get a great media consumption device for a highly competitive price. The only catch? The Fire HD 8 runs Amazon’s Fire OS rather than a more typical Android build, meaning you’ll need to download apps from Amazon’s app store rather than Google’s.
