In the series, the most affordable model is the most popular one. This device was able to win Android Headlines’ award for best tablet of 2022, and our readers are on the same page.

The cheapest model of the Galaxy Tab S8 strikes the best balance between affordability and functionality. It uses the same octa-core Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC that the more expensive models use, and it has a decent 8GB of RAM. This means that you can do some serious work on this tablet without skipping a beat.

Though this is the most affordable model, it’s still made from the premium materials that you find with the more expensive models. The chassis is made from metal, and it has a really nice feeling to it. It’s also sturdily built which means that it can take a fall without breaking.


At 11 inches, this tablet is decently sized, and it uses one of Samsung’s top-tier LCD panels. You won’t get as much color and contrast as an AMOLED display, but this is still a flagship-quality LCD panel. You will still get great colors and contrast regardless.

The front-facing camera is the camera that people will most likely use. There is a 12-megapixel camera up front for your video calls.

This tablet comes with the S Pen

Probably one of the biggest features of this tablet is the inclusion of Samsung’s S Pen. This makes the Galaxy Tab S8 perfect for artists who want to take their art on the road.
