  • Good value for money
  • Good performance
  • Good battery life
  • Lacks DeX or a keyboard

Summary

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is an all-around tablet that's good for both entertainment and productivity. Unlike its premium twin, there is no DeX mode, making it one of the only purely Android tablets left on the market. At 7mm (0.28in), the Samsung GalaxyTab S6 Lite is not quite as slim as the 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S6, but it still feels good in the hand and almost looks like its bigger sibling.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Samsung's 10.4-inch Android tablet isn't light on features. The Tab S6 Lite starts at $350 with 64GB of storage or $430 for 128GB. Both have microSD card slots to expand storage up to 1TB. It's $70 for Samsung's Book Cover, although you can likely find it cheaper with a bundle.

The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is Samsung's entry-level Android tablet. It costs £349 for the 4G LTE model and has a 10.4in FHD+ screen. It comes with a bundled S Pen stylus at no extra cost.

The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has a sleek aluminum design, a decent 10.4-inch display, and incredible battery life. There is a single button on the side of the S Pen that pulls up Samsung's drawing apps. The Exynos 9611 CPU and 4GB of RAM provide enough power to run a dozen Chrome tabs.

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $349.99 Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is the best way to get an active stylus tablet at a relatively low cost. The S Pen clips to the side of the tablet magnetically; it doesn't fall off when you're carrying it around. The tablet uses a Samsung Exynos 9611 processor with four 2.31GHz cores.

Pros[**]
  • S Pen stylus included for $80 less than the base iPad

phonearena[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 61%
Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is positioned very well, price-wise, to take some attention away from Apple's excellent iPad 10.2. It comes with an S Pen out of the box and only costs $350, while you will have to spend an extra $100 on top of the iPad's $330 if you want to draw on Apple's tablet.

Pros[**]
  • Great value for money
  • S Pen included in the box
  • Excellent stereo speakers
Cons[**]
  • Performance lags on midrange hardware
  • Throttling on the midrange hardware

techadvisor[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 69%
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite runs on Android 10 and Samsung's One UI 2.1 skin. This tablet runs on an Exynos 9611 Octa Core chipset, which is a decent all-rounder processor. You can multitask quite easily on this tablet with the inclusion of split screen and pop-up windows, allowing you to browse three different apps simultaneously. In the UK, you can only get the tablet with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, but in other markets such as the US you can get double the storage, with a 128GB version also available.

Pros[**]
  • S Pen is magnetic and attaches to the back of the tablet
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as the Galaxy Tab S5e

techradar[8]

Sentiment Score[*] 64%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has a 10.4-inch LCD screen with a 2000 x 1200 resolution. It's only 0.1 inches smaller than the non-Lite tablet, but the lack of that slate's higher-resolution AMOLED panel is one of the sacrifices of this budget tablet. It comes with an S Pen stylus in the box, which is a useful addition for drawing, sketching and taking notes.

Pros[**]
  • Good screen for a budget tablet
  • S Pen stylus included in the box
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • S Pen isn't as good as iPadOS

tomsguide[9]

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is an iPad competitor for the Android side. The 10.4-inch 2000 x 1200-pixel touchscreen panel provides accurate responses to touch. While I wish it had the iPad's $329 price, throwing in the S-Pen for free makes the price tag more than acceptable.

Pros[**]
  • Slim bezels
  • Strong performance
  • S-Pen stylus for free
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Not as bright as the iPad

trustedreviews[10]

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is the latest Android tablet to attempt to take on Apple's ruling vanilla iPad. It aims to entice buyers away from its arch-rival by offering a near equivalent set of features, plus a few added bonuses – chief of which are an included Samsung S Pen stylus and wealth of custom notation apps. The device has a single piece unassuming metal chassis, that looks like pretty much every other £300-£400 Android tablet I've tested in recent memory.

Pros[**]
  • Superb performance
  • S Pen stylus included
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • Niggling issues with Android
