Hi!
I am planning to buy a tablet, and my requirements are:
1. Should be comfortable for reading books and annotate PDFs
2. Atleast 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage.
Budget upto 40k

Was thinking about buying an ipad initially but the pencil alone costs 8k, or 5-5.5k if I go with logitech crayon
Samsung S6 Lite is costing < 23k and comes with pen included in the box.

Need suggestions

Thanks

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 (6/128,UFS 3.0, no custom ROMs of note so far). Currently retails at 45k but a particular color variant was available for 40k in FK a few days ago.
Otherwise S5e (4/64,eMMC 5.1 unfortunately but good custom ROM support ) (30k for LTE version) is superior to S6 Lite but it doesn’t support stylus I think.
ipad 9th gen. is rumored to launch with 4/64 option . That too $30 less than the current MSRP. But it’s some months away.
ipads with their 4:3 aspect ratio are better suited for your purposes IMO. S6 and S5e with 16:10 offer the best balance between e-reading and (widescreen) video playback. S6 Lite at 15:9 is better suited for the latter.

S6 Lite will cost me less than 23k.
So which one should I opt for?

S6 Lite at 23k
S5e 34k
S6 40k
iPad Air 4 at 50k (Twice of S6 lite plus 5k extra to be spent for logitech crayon)

Thanks

Not used an Apple device in eons but for e-reading or working with docs even the base ipad 8th gen. should suffice I guess. 3GB of RAM shouldn’t be a hindrance. But it’s limited to the 1st gen. Apple Pencil only. Plus fixed-layout docs like PDFs etc will fill the entire display. So no zooming in/out to read them unlike the widescreen Samsung tablets.
I like the S6 a lot though.
S6 Lite would also work and save a significant amount of dough. But OneUI and just 4GB RAM?

The difference in screen real estate is pretty big. The humongous S21 Ultra is only 112 cm² whereas typical 10-11" tablets range from 321-359 cm², well over 3 times!

YSK Pencil support has been extended to regular iPad, It retails at ₹38K without discount/offer at Apple IN. I’ve always been an Android user but Apple reigns supreme in the tablet range (still rocking my iPad Air 2)
