The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is once again available at its cheapest ever price. This deal on the budget-friendly tablet brings it down to $179.99 (was $229.99) at Amazon US while you can also get it for £159.87 (was £219.99) in the UK

This return to a record low for the device makes it the best value tablet priced at under $200 / £200. Granted, it's not all the way up there with the best tablets like the latest Galaxy Tab S8 and Apple iPad 10.2 as both more powerful, but they cost at least twice as much for even the most basic models. And while some Fire tablets are cheaper, they're locked into the Amazon ecosystem. So, for light use, web browsing, media streaming, and a little gaming, it really is one of the best cheap tablet deals available right now.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is positioned as an affordable entry-level tablet for general everyday use. Even though it's a cheap option, it still sports a wide 10.5-inch screen that can display media in full HD, plus the Octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM ensure solid performance. The battery life impresses, too, with up to 13 hours on a single charge. Today's discounted model comes with 32GB of in-built storage – which is, admittedly, somewhat restrictive – but it can be easily expanded with a microSD card.
