Topic: Are there any tablet with usb ports
In this post, I am going to talk about tablets and tablet with usb ports, whether should you buy a tablet and many more. The tablets I’m going to include here are going to be more powerful than your average tablet and going to perform much better.
After mobile phones, tablets are mostly our next go-to device. Tablets have plenty of practical uses when we cannot grab a laptop or computer. Carrying around a computer is not possible and laptops are also kinda big and bulky.
The Tablets on the other side are easy and can be carried if the size is around 8-10 inches. But portability and screen size doesn’t matter when we need the work done.
Mobile phones are equally competitive with technology too. Nowadays mobiles can do almost everything, but when it comes to comparing the data in excel sheets or drawing a complex design for social media content then a bigger screen size helps. Some tablets come with a stylus to perform tasks like such.
Who is the target audience of tablet devices?
Tablets’ target audience? Tablets are mainly used by kids and college-going students. In the professional world, tablet uses are minimal and very basic. You can’t perform all the pc like tasks on tablet devices yet. The apps are very low in numbers. The apps which do present lack in quality and no. of function. If we just take the example of excel sheets the app has very few features compared to its laptop or pc counterpart.
Now I’m going to share only those tablets in this list which are coming up with usb ports and not the ones that others have already shared.
These tablets which are we going to discuss below can do much more than a tablet and direct connectivity is a real brize on these.

Fourth on the list, we have tablets from the brand Samsung. The Samsung Galaxy Tab s8. Tab s8 comes with the latest snapdragon s8 gen 1 chipset which offers the best performance at the current time.
The tablet has an 11-inch touch 120hz display. Two storage options to choose from 128GB and 256GB. For more expandability, you can attach a Pendrive or HDD using the type-C port. Yes, the tablet offers a Type-C USB port and MicroSD card slot.
The tablet is quite easy to handle and comfortable to hold for a longer duration. The battery backup Tab S8 is quite good and can last for around 12 hrs average. In my opinion, an 11inch screen size is good for media consumption but if you feel like you want more.
Then you can go with a 12.4 or 14.6-inch size which is available with model S8+ and S8 ultra respectively. Right now S8 does not have any cellular facility. But Samsung announced that Tab S8s will have a sim card slot for cellular connectivity.
Samsung Tab s8 come with an s-pen for other doodling features. S-pen helps if you are a creator or student and creating drawings or taking notes on Tab s8 becomes quite easy.
For zoom meetings, Tab S8 comes with a 12MP ultra-wide front-facing camera and in the rear, it has a dual camera setup of 13 + 6 MP camera. Where 13Mp is an autofocus camera and 6Mp camera is an ultra-wide lens.
Samsung S8 offers many features like Samsung Dex for a computer-like feeling. You can connect many other devices using a dongle via the Type-C port to access multiple devices on your tab.
What is Samsung Dex?
If you are wondering what is samsung dex then samsung dex is a proprietary feature. Where samsung provides a feature to some specific samsung dex enabled devices that can connect to any monitor or tv and provide a desktop-like experience on a monitor or TV.
Overall all the tablets we have discussed above are top-notch and good for day-to-day tasks. If you are an android person go with the Samsung Tab s8 and if you want windows on your tab then I might suggest the galaxy book 2 pro. both are really good in my opinion, the rest is up to your requirements.
