Samsung Tablets Are Well Worth Buying: 10 Reasons Why

NEWS ANALYSIS: Samsung doesn’t always get the most attention or accolades for its tablets. But the company’s line of slates is worth picking up.

Samsung tablets aren’t uppermost in buyers’ minds as a top choice in the market. Apple’s iPad, due mainly to its dominant market share, gets nearly all of the attention.

That factor brought stronger sales for Apple products and made it difficult for competing tablet makers, particularly Samsung, Google, Amazon and others to actually get market attention their models might deserve based on features and performance. For now, consumers are dedicating most of their spending on Apple’s iPad.

But perhaps that should change. Samsung in particular has been offering tablets that don’t get the respect they deserve. Yes, they’ve been involved in patent lawsuits with Apple, and yes, debate rages on over how similar they are to the iPad, but that shouldn’t discount their value. Samsung knows how to build mobile products that deliver quality and value that rival anything else on the market. Reviews of those products reflect that.

So, it might be a good time to take a closer look at Samsung’s tablets and see why they are smart buys. They might not have the cachet of Apple iPads, but that doesn’t mean that aren’t just as good.

Here’s why you should buy a Samsung tablet.

1. It’s all about choice

The nice thing about Samsung’s tablet line is that it delivers the kind of choice today’s customers want. Those who want a 7-inch tablet for an attractive price will get it. Those who would like a larger slate with a stylus can have that. In Samsung’s line, it’s all about choice.

2. Larger screen sizes are available

Although the iPad’s 9.7-inch screen is a nice size, it can’t compete with those from Samsung. In fact, customers will find that they can get a 10.1-inch screen from Samsung. That might not sound like a big difference at first blush, but actually holding the device will reveal just how much more screen real estate that .4 inches delivers.

3. Don’t discount the stylus

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a device that shouldn’t be overlooked. In fact, out of all Samsung’s tablets, the Galaxy Note gets the highest reviews. Why? The stylus works exceptionally well and actually increases overall usability. Intuitive design is something we hear about often. The Galaxy Note actually delivers it.

4. The software is top-notch

The nice thing about Samsung mobile products is that they don’t simply run the latest version of Android. While the latest version might be running on its products, Samsung slaps its own software on top of it, creating a truly unique experience that considers how users interact with the device. With its Premium Suite Upgrade, for example, the software anticipates what app a user wants based on their actions.
