Released in early May in the US, the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 were initially sold for $229.99 and $299.99, respectively.

Both the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 run Android Lollipop, sharing many of their features. They offer 2 MP front-facing cameras, 5 MP rear cameras, quad-core Snapdragon 410 processors, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. The Tab A 8.0 sports an 8-inch display with 768 x 1024 pixels and 4:3 aspect ratio, while the Tab A 9.7 has a 9.7-inch screen (same resolution and same aspect ratio).

You can buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 online (see the source links below) in three color versions: white, smoky blue, and smoky titanium.

Last month, Samsung also released a Galaxy Tab A 9.7 with S Pen, but this one hasn't been discounted, having the same price since day one: $349.99.

Display is a dealbreaker. If you guys are buying. select the 8" Version the 9.7" version is a pixelated mess.
