All of these deals were live at the time of writing, but Amazon changes its offers often. We’ll do our best to keep the list updated with the best tablet deals as we find new ones.
Galaxy Tab S6
The ultra-slim Galaxy Tab S6 is a genuine 2-in-1 — you can use it as a tablet or combine it with the keyboard to replicate a lightweight laptop. This professional-grade slate also supports the S Pen and Samsung’s DeX productivity user interface. In our opinion, it’s the best Android tablet you can find, matching superb hardware with plenty of horsepower and features for people on the go.

Amazon Fire 7
The Amazon Fire line of tablets is a great place to look if you want an affordable and easy-to-use device. However, they run on Fire OS which is an Amazon-focused version of Android with different default apps. The Fire 7 is the basic tablet from Amazon and it offers up to seven hours of battery life and up to 32GB of storage.
Amazon Fire HD 8
If you’re able to spring a bit more on a tablet, the Fire HD 8 is worth the extra cost over the Fire 7. It’s been fully refreshed with a new USB-C port and wireless charging capability. All-day 12 hour battery life, 2GB of RAM, and doubled storage of 32 or 64GB are solid improvements over the previous generation. As with all smart Amazon products, you can take full advantage of Alexa commands with only the sound of your voice.
Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus
The Fire HD 8 Plus is exactly what it sounds like — a marginally improved version of the Fire HD 8. The main difference is that the RAM is increased to 3GB, but there are improved charging aspects too. Not only can it be charged wirelessly, but it also includes a faster 9W charger to decrease changing time from five hours to four.
Amazon Fire HD 10
The Fire HD 10 is the largest and most powerful option in the Fire tablet line and it beefs the specs up even further over the Fire HD 8. It lasts up to 12 hours and doubles the RAM of the Fire 7 up to 2GB. The Fire HD 10 also drops the Micro-USB in favor of a USB-C connection and upgrades the screen to Full HD. You can also choose between 32GB and 64GB of storage.
Apple New iPad
Our best tablet deals list wouldn’t be complete without some Apple products. The new iPad is actually the base model of the previous version, just with new internal options. It comes with the A12 Bionic chip, up to 10 hours of battery life, and a 10.2-inch Retina display. Of course, it runs on iOS so it’s likely your best bet if you’re already in the Apple ecosystem. The iPad also blows Amazon’s Fire tablets out of the water in terms of storage with 32GB or 128GB onboard.
Apple iPad Pro
The 11-inch iPad Pro is for the Apple fans who have a flashier budget, and you get what you pay for. The stunning screen offers high security with Face ID which lets you safely unlock your iPad and access various applications. It also comes with 12MP rear and 7MP front cameras to capture the most stunning photos and videos.
This deal is for the 2018 model of the iPad Pro but it’s a high spec variant. It’s powered by the A12X Bionic Chip 64-Bit with Neural Engine and M12 Coprocessor, plus it comes with a whopping 512GB of storage.
Apple iPad Mini
If you know that you want an iPad but you want to minimize the size, the Apple iPad Mini is your best bet. It shrinks down to a 7.9-inch Retina display, but it boosts the internals to an A12 Bionic chip and 64 or 256GB of storage. The iPad Mini now also supports Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard folio.
Microsoft Surface Go 2
Moving on from iOS, the Microsoft Surface Go 2 is the smallest, most portable option in the Surface line. The Surface Go 2 runs Windows 10 Home in S mode with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. On the inside, you’ll also find an Intel Pentium Gold 4425Y processor. You can set the Surface Go 2 in tablet mode, laptop mode, or studio mode with the flexible rear stand and set your creativity free.
LG G Pad 5
LG isn’t to be outdone by its competitors, offering the G Pad 5 as an alternative for your work and entertainment needs. It features a crisp 10.1-inch screen, 32GB of storage, and a fingerprint sensor for quick access. It also has an 8MP auto-focus rear camera, a 5MP auto shot front camera, and a long-lasting battery for all-day use. This model is unlocked for use on most GSM 4G LTE networks, including Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, though it isn’t compatible with Sprint.
