The stellar Samsung Galaxy S6 tablet is nearly 40% off, today only

What is it?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a highly rated tablet with twice the memory of an iPad. The powerful little S6 boasts a 10-inch screen, 64GB of storage and up to 13 hours of battery life. Entertainment? Check! Productivity? Check! Affordable? You tell us — it's just $215 today at Amazon, down from its usual price of $350. That's a check-plus!

It's roughly the same size as an iPad with all the same uses for a fraction of the cost. It even includes a stylus!

Why is this a good deal?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 doesn't go on sale often, and when it does, the discounts aren't always spectacular. But this deal offers a solid $135 off the usual price — that's a nearly 40% discount — and it matches the all-time low price for this tablet.

Why do I need this?

The included S-Pen (as in Samsung pen) makes it easy to write notes, mark up documents and more. You can also use the stylus to effortlessly navigate among the tablets functions. And that 13-hour charge means you'll be able to work and play to your heart's content, although Samsung does state that battery life is affected by usage. Binging your favorite Netflix series, for example, might cut that battery time by a few hours.

The fast processor makes it easy to multitask, and the light weight — just over one pound — makes it easy to hold in your hand or stuff into a bag. While it might not have the same level of power as an iPad Pro, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is ideal for use as an on-the-go entertainment machine. It's kid-friendly and easy to learn and set up, too.

What reviewers say

Amazon shoppers have given this device an impressive 4.7 overall rating!

"Samsung nailed it," raved a happy customer. "The volume is very loud and clear. My favorite part is the dynamic screen saver. I get a new picture every time I open it up and, man, are they stunning. It's relatively lighter, even with the case I bought. It is Bluetooth keyboard–compatible, which is a big plus, and it holds a charge forever. I can use this tablet eight to 10 days before I have to charge it again. My use consists of online games, word processing and general Web surfing. The camera is great. It takes clear pictures. I'm glad I finally upgraded. It's a functional and enjoyable device to use. Worth every penny I spent for it."

Another user said this is a "great bang for the buck" with "neat drawing features."

"Bought this as a gift for my mom. Super easy to set up. Great screen with crisp text, vivid colors and plenty of brightness. Battery life has been amazing. The expandable storage is great for traveling. On the downside, there is no headphone jack and there are still key big-name Android apps that are not optimized for tablets. But, all in all, she's super happy with the tablet and glad she made the switch," said one user.
