The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is a cheap entry-level tablet that should get long software updates. It offers a good performance for its price, a metal body, and four good speakers. Sadly, the battery life is not the best and it does not support an active pen.

Plus, in AR Emoji Camera mode three people can each have their personalized emoji face mask. Another plus is that when searching through Settings, search suggestions are now available to simplify things; also screenshots you take with this device can be saved into folders of your choosing.
