The iPad Air with M1 silicon proves Samsung has a mid-range tablet problem

Anyone who read my Galaxy Tab S8 + review, or any Tab S8 reviews, will probably object to my headline. Samsung’s new tablet series is excellent, coupling fast performance with a beautiful thin-bezel display and 120Hz refresh rate. Samsung upgraded its flagships tablets exactly as it should have, including making One UI less of a downgrade compared to iPadOS; and the Tab S8 only costs $ 100 more than the iPad Air.

So what’s the problem? It’s that any Samsung offerings under $ 700 drop off a cliff in terms of performance. The actual price rival to the 10.9-inch, $ 600 iPad Air with M1 is the 12.4-inch, $ 600 Galaxy Tab S7 FE with the Snapdragon 750G and 6GB of RAM.
