Find the best deals on Samsung products from all across the US right now, backed by our trustworthy recommendations.
2020 has seen Samsung release no fewer than nine new smartphones as it attempts to corner the communications market in the US. While Apple may still reign supreme, with 48% of all smartphone sales across the country, Samsung is trying to close the gap with a product range to suit any budget and buyer.
We’ve also seen a number of impressive new tablets this year, from the flagship Galaxy S7 right down to the budget Galaxy Tab A 10.1. Though the company’s tablets might not be as popular as they once were, these are still some excellent offerings.
Samsung has big plans to add to its already extensive range of TVs, and we’re excited to see what it can pull off with its Quantum Dot technology in 2021. With so many top quality products to choose from, we’ve narrowed down some of the best of 2020, and ones to watch out for in the coming year.
Samsung’s flagship phone model continues to impress, and the company has kept to its annual release schedule. With 5G capability back in March 2020, it was way ahead of the competition and comes with some top-notch features, including a 108-megapixel camera, 8K video capture, a 6.2-inch screen and 12GB of ram.
It’s a little pricey at $999, and those undecideds might want to hold off until the Apple iPhone 12 releases a little later in the year before they commit.
Though it’s definitely not Samsung’s most powerful tablet, we’ve included the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 on this list as the best budget to mid-range option. At just $265, it’s much cheaper than its biggest rival, the iPad mini, but still comes with a fast Exynos 7940 processor and 3GB of RAM. The front-facing camera makes for high-quality video chats in today’s era of daily Zoom calls.
There are definitely faster tablets out there, but if you just need one for everyday browsing, reading, and chatting, you’d do well with a Galaxy Tab A 8.4.
In the race for the sharpest picture quality, Samsung is starting to inch ahead of the competition and has pulled off a real coup with this product, giving us an 8K TV for the price of a 4K. With the 65-inch model starting at $3,199, you’ll get excellent audio performance, high-quality 8K resolution, WiFi connectivity and an intuitive smart interface.
We’ve seen improvements to the upscaling AI technology too. What this basically means is that your TV tries to analyze what you’re watching and adjust your picture accordingly. Then, it applies a filter to improve your viewing experience. We’re still in the early days of this technology, though, and we’ll have to wait and see if it brings significant improvements.
The S20 might be Samsung’s flagship phone but the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is its larger, more powerful cousin. In fact, it may be one of the most powerful phones to hit the market in late 2020, and could dominate the premium phone market in 2021. It comes with a stunning 108-megapixel camera, a generous 7.9-inch screen, a lightning-fast Exynos 990 CPU, and a massive 512 GB of storage.
The only downsides are that the battery can drain rather quickly given the hungry processor, and it’s an expensive option at $1,499. If you’re looking for something a little more affordable, you might want to keep an eye on LG in 2021 as it looks set to release a new range of mid-range phones, like the LG Wing.
It seems that we never have a chance to catch our breath these days before the newest innovation in TV technology arrives. Just as we were getting used to 8K and NanoCell TVs, Samsung has announced it expects to start production on its Quantum Dot screens in 2021.
This QD technology uses tiny nanoparticles, no more than two to 10 nanometers across, that have semiconductor properties. When light hits these tiny dots, each one emits a color from a specific bandwidth. The idea being that you get the clearest, most crisp TV picture possible. Thankfully, you won’t need a degree in physics to watch one of these QD TVs, and they’re definitely a product to watch out for in 2021.
We’ve added a second smartphone to our one-to-watch list to highlight the fact that Samsung is directing so much effort into this market next year. Though not as powerful as the Note 20 Ultra, the company hopes the S30 will provide some stiff competition to the iPhone 12.
We’re expecting it to be a more affordable, slightly trimmed down version of the Note 20 Ultra, with prices starting from around $999. We’re hoping to see a much-improved fingerprint scanner too, an area the company has struggled with in the past.
If you’re on the hunt for a new smartphone, you’re going to be spoiled for choice as we make our way into 2021. We may’ve covered some of the premium options here, but at the rate Samsung is pumping out new products, you’ll have a host of budget and mid-range options to choose from too.
This focus on the smartphone market means we’re seeing less choice in terms of tablets and TVs, but we still expect some impressive things from the tech giant in these areas.
