With Father's Day fast approaching, you might want to surprise your dad with a new Android tablet. And just a few days before the celebration, Samsung's flagship Galaxy Tab S9 has been on sale on Amazon, which might prove to be a perfect gift idea.

The Galaxy Tab S9 usually costs $799, but at the current sale, the beige Wi-Fi variant has plunged to a new all-time low of $599, netting you a $200 saving (25 percent). That's also a rare offer considering the Galaxy tablet's lowest price in many months was $669.

Why the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is now a worthy purchase

From the Galaxy Tab S9 trio models (comparison) that were launched at the end of 2023, the smaller Galaxy Tab S9 received the biggest upgrades coming from its predecessor.

Essentially, the Galaxy Tab S9 sports an OLED display, which is a major upgrade from the LCD panel before. The display remains at 11-inch wide with a fast 120 Hz refresh rate. This size also makes it portable and easy to manage with one hand compared to the larger slab options.

Another vital enhancement Samsung gave to the Galaxy Tab S9 is a tougher ingress protection at IP68 adding water-proofing on top of dust resistance. In addition, the tablet is paired with a rugged S Pen stylus that can work even after an accidental dip in the water.

Like the pricier Galaxy Tab S9+ and Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra (review), the regular Galaxy Tab S9 is fitted with a powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The memory configuration for this variant comes in 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. You can also find a reliable 13 MP rear camera and 12 MP front-facing snapper for video calls.

In the software side, the Galaxy Tab S9 has been updated to OneUI 6.1 based on Android 14, which introduced new AI features like Circle to Search and AI-assisted editing, among others. There's also a Samsung DeX mode that turns the interface of the tablet into a more useful desktop environment.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
