Deal: Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen now costs $279.99

If you're in need of a decent 10-inch tablet that doesn't cost more than $300, you may want to consider getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen. Released in the US in October for $349.99, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is now offered by Samsung for $ 279.99 - that's $70 off the regular price. The tablet is available in either black, or white.

In addition to an S Pen stylus (which lets you write, draw, take screenshots, and more), the highlight features of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 include a 1920 x 1200 pixels display, an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. In case you don't need an S Pen, you can also get the tablet without it, and pay just $229.99 - check out the source links below.

Initially running Android 6 Marshmallow, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 can be updated to Android 7 Nougat. At the moment, we don't know if Samsung also plans to update the tablet to Android O, but we'll let you know when we find out.

It is quite a good tab actually. Possibly a better deal than the Tab S3 if you do not live and die by benchmark scores.

Lack of storage is the only thing that bothers me about these.

He meant the storage to install apps.

That doesn't solve everything since not everything can't be transferred to the sd card. As you should know since you're so smug. I agree btw. 16GB of internal storage in 2017 is a joke.

"I agree btw. 16GB of internal storage in 2017 is a joke." Yeah, but also take into consideration the price of the device. 16GB for less than $300 is reasonable. Besides, most games on the Play Store do install on SD card.

Fantastic Tablet. I got my Wife and Kid both one last Xmas for that same price and got another $30 off a piece somehow.
