It’s hard to find an Android slate worthy of even being compared to Apple’s incredibly successful and well-reviewed iPad Pro family, but perhaps more annoyingly, the very few devices that can actually hold their own in a head-to-head battle are usually ridiculously overpriced.
Another important detail to take into consideration before deciding whether or not to claim one of these limited-time special offers and exactly what version to choose is that $550 and $700 will buy you 6 gigs of RAM in addition to 128 gigs of internal storage space as far as the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ are concerned respectively.
Meanwhile, digital hoarders opting for 256 or 512GB storage configurations will get two extra gigs of memory as well for a healthy multitasking boost. Interestingly, the top-of-the-line Tab S7 Plus variant is listed as “out of stock” on Microsoft’s official US website at the time of this writing, with the middle model fetching $779.99 instead of $929.99 and the more compact Tab S7 going for $629.99 and $729.99 with 256 and 512 gigs of local digital hoarding room respectively.
Technically, the ultra-high-end tablets are sold alongside Microsoft 365 subscriptions setting you back at least $35 more, but if you click on the little cart icon at the top right corner when asked to choose the type of add-on you want to purchase together with the Tab S7 or S7+, you should be able to bypass the company’s requirement and have no problem ordering just the slate itself.
Keep in mind that productivity-maximizing keyboard covers are sold separately, which is not what we can say about Samsung’s signature S Pen. Apart from the built-in stylus, the Galaxy Tab S7 duo has a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 865+ processor going for it, as well as 120Hz display refresh rate technology, excellent battery life, premium build quality, and surprisingly decent cameras.
In case you’re wondering, the Tab S7+ comes with a bigger and sharper Super AMOLED screen than its LCD-settling little brother, as well as a significantly larger battery and a trendier in-display fingerprint recognition method. While Microsoft only sells the two Android giants in black, other color options are available at Samsung and retailers like Amazon.
