3 tablets with phone functionality (you can call them giant smartphones)
Although we now have smartphones with screens that are well above 6 inches in size (almost tablet sized), most tablets are still just that – tablets. Even if they feature 5G and LTE connectivity, most tablets don’t actually support phone calls. At least that's the case in 2021. A few years back there were plenty of "tablets with phone calls" options, but nowadays such are hard to find, at least from reputable manufacturers.

However, even today, a good number of people are looking for tablets that support phone calls and if you're one of them – you're in the right place! Below we have listed the best recent tablets that come with a phone dialer app and can make phone calls, just like a smartphone would.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

This wonderful midrange Android tablet not only comes with a free S Pen, but as you can see from our photo above – it has a phone dialer app. In our Galaxy Tab S6 Lite review, we were also particularly impressed with its light, modern design and loud, full-sounding speakers, especially considering its midrange price. And of course, you can easily make phone calls with its cellular version (linked below), just as if it were a 10.4-inch smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4"

If you're looking for a cheap tablet with phone call functionality, then Samsung's budget A series Galaxy Tab A7 10.4" is a solid option. Its performance isn't that much different from the midrange Tab S6 Lite, and the A7 sports two more speakers – four in total, two on each side. As expected from a budget tablet, it doesn't have S Pen support, nor is it a gaming beast, but it's perfect for media consumption and yes – making and taking phone calls.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0" with S Pen

What about a tablet that is actually close to phone-sized, at 8 inches? If you ever wanted a huge "phone" that can also be your notepad and tablet – the Tab A 8.0" is your best bet. It comes with an S Pen, which is conveniently stored inside the tablet itself, similarly to how the Galaxy Note line of smartphones do it.
