While the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ are without a doubt Samsung
's most impressive tablets right now, as well as quite possibly the best overall Android-based iPad Pro
alternatives on the market regardless of the name of the manufacturer, we can totally understand if you're not feeling comfortable spending $550 or more
on a discounted Snapdragon 865+ powerhouse.
Luckily for bargain hunters in love with Samsung gear
and/or Android slates, the significantly cheaper Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
is even cheaper than usual for Amazon Prime Day. Technically, the e-commerce giant's huge sales event is scheduled to end later today, but this particular deal could last longer, catering to anyone that wants to buy an affordable tablet with a respectable spec sheet ahead of the holidays rather than just Prime members.

Commercially released around five months ago
at a very reasonable starting price of $350, the 10.4-inch device is currently on sale for a new all-time high discount of $100 in an entry-level 64GB storage version and three different paint jobs.
Unsurprisingly, the costlier 128 gig configuration is scoring an even heftier $110 price cut, but only in an Angora Blue color, with Oxford Gray and Chiffon Rose models fetching $100 less than usual. Naturally, you won't be getting any sort of cellular connectivity here, although incredibly enough, these heavily reduced prices do include a creativity-encouraging S Pen.
That's just one of the key advantages the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
holds over Apple's newest 10.2-inch iPad
, which normally starts at $329 with a larger overall footprint, thicker screen bezels, and less storage space, as well as no microSD expansion support.
Then again, we're pretty sure the A12 Bionic processor under the hood of the eight-gen "regular" iPad is fast enough to obliterate the Exynos 9611 chipset inside the Tab S6 Lite in a head-to-head performance battle, while the 2000 x 1200 TFT display on Samsung's budget-friendly 10.4-inch soldier is almost certainly no match for the 2160 x 1620 Retina IPS LCD panel on Apple's latest low-cost slate.
That being said, the Galaxy Tab S6
Lite might just be too affordable to pass up at the time of this writing.
