It’s been a strange year for Android tablets, with few manufacturers releasing compelling products, aside from Sony and their Xperia Tablet Z4, which still hasn’t hit the market everywhere. However, you could say that there’s little point in releasing incremental upgrades over last year’s products, as 2014 was a good year for Android tablets. Samsung finally bought Super AMOLED to their tablets with the 8.4 and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S pair, and today, the smaller version is on offer from Amazon.
At just $279, this is one of the better deals we’ve seen on an Android tablet. It’s packed with Samsung features that fans will have come to expect, and the 2560 x 1600 8.4-inch Super AMOLED display is one of the best displays on the market. It makes videos and movies really pop thanks to deep blacks and vibrant colors. If you’re looking for a tablet to primarily watch TV and movies with, then this is easily one of the best options out there.
When added to your cart on Amazon, you can have the WiFi version with 16GB of storage for just $279 today from Amazon, and considering the sort of premium Samsung products usually command, this is a pretty sweet deal.
