'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

More: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8+ Review

The Galaxy Tab S8+ is a useful tool for working and relaxing. With the large 12.4-inch sAMOLED screen, you'll get a stunning 8K HD resolution with up to 120Hz refresh rate. Coupled with the Wi-Fi 6E internet connection capability, you can stream, game, and more on the tablet.

It also comes with quad speakers and Dolby Atmos surround sound that were tuned by AKG to bring the best sound for when you're watching streaming and the like. But when you're on the go, you can use it as a multitasking tool with the 2-in-1 capabilities where it can work as a tablet and a PC with a separate keyboard. The Samsung DeX will give a desktop-like experience, and you can get Microsoft 365 for working on documents when on the go.

As a heads up, the Galaxy Tab S Pen sells separately for only $59, so you'll need to take that into account when you order. You can also get 128GB of storage, and you can opt for more storage – for a fee, of course.

Plus, with the battery life, users have reported up to 6-7 hours of heavy use on a single charge, making sure that you'll have plenty of time to get your work done or stream your film and have plenty of battery left over.

With up to $500 in trade-in savings and $150 without, add it to your cart today to get this great deal. And if you're still considering other options, be sure to check out our picks for best tablets.
