Savings can be had in the 3GB variant
The Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is by no means a powerful tablet, but for $100, it’s hard to say no. We here at AP love to talk about fancy tablets like the awesome Galaxy Tab S8+, but the reality is that most people just want to browse the web, watch YouTube, and read the occasional e-book. That’s where the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite comes into its own, making it the perfect deal this Black Friday weekend.
The Tab A7 Lite comes in two variants, one with 3GB of RAM and the other with 4GB. The 3GB model is available for $60 off at Samsung, Best Buy, and Amazon, bringing its price down to $100. If you have another device to trade in, you’ll get even more discounts from Samsung.
Why should you buy the Tab A7 Lite?
The A7 Lite offers an 8.7-inch 720p LCD display, which is good enough for a tablet of this size. Combine that with the Mediatek Helio P22T, 32GB of storage (plus MicroSD) and 3GB of RAM, and you’ve got a remarkably capable tablet for the price. But what really makes this tablet stand out is the One UI. It’s currently running One UI 4.1 based on Android 12, which means it benefits from the Material You theme and everything else this particular version of One UI has to offer.
What sweetens the deal is that the A7 Lite should see One UI 5 and Android 13 in January 2023, bringing the benefits of the hard work Samsung and Google have put into improving Android for larger displays. With better tablet UIs in apps, smoother multitasking, and the Taskbar we saw debut on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 earlier this year, there’s no doubt that incoming updates are important. After all, there aren’t many tablets in this price range that can get a single software update, and Android 13 will be the second update for the A7 Lite, which perfectly reflects Samsung’s commitment at any price point.
Compare that to a competitor like the Amazon Fire tablet, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is the clear choice. The Google Play Store and Google Services are must-haves for most people, and you can technically add all of that to a Fire tablet, but the preinstalled software can go without it.
