XDA VIDEO OF THE DAY
    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 is an 11-inch Android tablet featuring Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, 8GB RAM, and S Pen support.

The higher-tier storage configurations are available at a $150 discount on the MSRP, bringing the Galaxy Tab S8 (256GB) down to $630 and the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus (256GB) down to $830.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is a 12.4-inch Android tablet featuring Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, 8GB RAM, and S Pen support.

The top-spec 512GB variant of the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is also available at a $150 discount. But even at its discounted price of $1050, we wouldn’t recommend you to buy it over a similarly priced laptop or Chromebook. That’s because laptops in the $1000-$1100 price range will offer a better bang for your buck, with most models featuring dedicated GPUs, powerful processors from Intel and AMD, and much more. You can check out our roundup for the best cheap laptops for our top picks in that price range.

If you’d much rather buy an Android tablet instead of a laptop, we recommend getting the 128GB variant of the Galaxy Tab S8 or Galaxy Tab S8 Plus. The $150 price difference between the 128GB and 256GB variants is a bit too much, and you can easily expand the storage with a microSD card for less than half that amount.
