Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2022
With its solid price-to-performance ratio, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite hits a sweet spot between cheap and slow entry-level Android tablets and powerful but pricey high-end Galaxy Tab models. The updated 2022 model is a bargain if you’re looking for a solid and reliable Android tablet that won’t break the bank, but isn’t frustratingly slow either. You can now save $100 on the 64 GB and 128 GB models.
Android tablets range from cheap but slow to powerful but pricey. Somewhere in the middle of Samsung’s Galaxy tablet line is the Tab S6 Lite, which was just refreshed last year. The 2022 Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is an enticing proposition for anyone looking for a capable tablet that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, and it’s on sale now for just $250 after a very nice $100 price cut.
Why the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a worthy purchase
Samsung is the leader in the world of Android devices and that applies to tablets as well as smartphones. The Korean techitan now makes many different tablets, from the rather spartan (but very affordable) Tab A series to the more expensive Tab S models. Falling somewhere in between is the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
Samsung first released the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite in 2020 and gave it a nice update last year (although we wish it could have gone by a different name). With its sleek and lightweight design, it’s a great budget tablet and a good alternative to the similarly priced 10.2-inch Apple iPad. The Tab S6 Lite is also similar in size to the iPad, with a 10.4-inch screen with a resolution of 2000×1200. That’s good to see on an Android tablet priced as cheaply as it is today, and while it’s not the AMOLED screen we prefer, it’s good enough for watching way too many videos, on surfing the internet and the like.
The 2022 Tab S6 Lite is a worthy performer for the price. Some of the updates it received during the 2020 release include an octa-core Snapdragon 720G CPU that allows apps to run smoothly and decent multitasking. The Tab S6 Lite also comes with Samsung’s One UI and an OTA is coming soon, which will deliver the long-awaited Android 13-based version 5.1 update. More importantly, a later launch date means it was running stock Android 12 rather than Android 10 and so software support is expected to come further into the future.
Ahead of next week’s Discover Samsung deals event, the 2022 Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is on sale at various retailers for $100 off. That discount is available for both storage options, with the 64GB model priced at $250 and the 128GB tablet retailing for $330.
If you’re not crazy about Amazon Fire tablets but can’t afford or appreciate the luxury and glitz of the iPad, you’ve got a happy middle ground to come and enjoy with the 2022 Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
