Which Samsung Galaxy tablet should I buy?
There’s a wide variety of Samsung tablets on the market right now, all made in different years, sold at different prices and for completely different types of buyers. In other words, if you’re here to get clarity you're definitely not alone.
Our product list below divides up this tablet brand into two categories: Premium, and budget/mid-range so you can see the full list of products currently available, and how much you can expect to pay.
Samsung Galaxy Tabs vs Apple iPads
Samsung and Apple have been nip-and-tuck ever since we first tested a Samsung tablet in 2012, as the graph below shows. While other tablet brands have brought the average down, Samsung and Apple have stuck (mostly) to a strict diet of well-made tablets that are just slightly more expensive than their other rivals.
In 2021, the Galaxy Tab S7 undercuts the 11-inch iPad Pro by around £200 and looks even better value when you account for the fact that Samsung includes a stylus in the box, where Apple does not. Similarly, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is priced around £100 cheaper than a regular 10.5-inch iPad.
The only consideration you should make is whether you’ll prefer a tablet running the Android operating system instead of iOS. If you have an iPhone, for example, you might find an iPad more useful, since iPads and iPhones work together, letting you keep your apps, files and messages synchronised across devices.
