Samsung is one of the few tablet makers that are actually still selling tablets these days. They also have a few different lines of tablets all aimed at different users and different price points. The Galaxy Tab A is the cheaper line of tablets, and the 8-inch version is on sale right now for just $149. Making it one heck of a steal. Coming in with a 8-inch 1024x768 resolution display, powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor along with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, not to mention the microSD card slot. The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is also available in LTE, however this model here is WiFi only. So you won't need to worry about adding it to your plan with your wireless carrier. But if you do need to use it without having any WiFi, you can simply use mobile hotspot from your smartphone.
The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 isn't the most high-specced tablet on the market, but it also isn't the lowest - the $49 Amazon Fire is even lower - for what you get, it's a great price to say the least. At $149, you are also getting a nice pouch to put your tablet in and keep it safe when carrying it around.
