There are a ton of quality budget tablets on the market right now, but which one is going to be the best for you and your specific needs. In this video we’re going to be checking out the five best budget tablets right now. I made this list based on performance, features, price, and more. I’ve included options for every type of consumer, so if you’re looking for a budget tablet for the whole family to use or a more powerful tablet that can be used for productivity at school or work, we’ll have the product for you. The fifth product on our list is the Amazon Fire HD 8. This is our best tablet under one hundred dollars. If you’re already in the Amazon ecosystem and you want an inexpensive tablet to surf, shop, and consume content then the Amazon Fire HD 8 is a great budget option for you. Currently priced at 90 the Fire HD 8 delivers exceptional value for the price making it an ideal tablet for consuming Amazon content including amazon’s kindle and audible for eBooks and audiobooks and not to mention all the content from your top streaming services like Netflix and Disney plus. Just keep in mind though Amazon does push their own content a little more aggressively. The 8-inch display is not too bad, the lower pixel density isn’t really noticeable when watching videos, but smaller fonts do look a little bit blurry. The colors are surprisingly good but lack the deeper blacks found on more expensive tabs. Overall, the performance is quite impressive for a sub 100 tablet although some third-party apps like Facebook can be sluggish, but not to the extent to be deal breakers. It does feature their amazon kids’ mode for child safe content but if you’re looking for a budget tablet for the whole family stay tuned for the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus coming up next. The key features are: Display. The 8-inch 1280×800 resolution is responsive and delivers some nice colors for watching videos and streaming shows. Battery. You’ll get about 12 hours of mix use. Dual 2-megapixel cameras. You’ll find it’s fine for video chats as long as you have decent lighting. Built-in Alexa. You can ask Alexa to find information, play videos or music or even open apps. Dual speakers. Delivers decent sound for watching movies and listening to music. If you’re looking for an inexpensive amazon tablet for personal use or for the whole family the Fire HD 8 tab is one of your best budget options with access to your favorite streaming platforms and over 500 000 available apps and games. The fourth product on our list is the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus. This is our best budget tablet for families. If you’re looking for an inexpensive tablet the whole family can use, then the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus is one of the best options for you. Currently priced at 150 the Tab M10 Plus performs above its sub 200 price bracket delivering exceptional value and performance, with an all-metal body, ultra-modern design and super thin bezels giving you a higher screen to display ratio. Overall, you’ve got a premium looking and feeling tab without all the plastic found on most tabs in its class. The large full HD display with wide viewing angles and the two side speakers tuned with Dolby Atmos is ideal for families to watch videos, movies, TV shows, and play games together making it an ideal entertainment device for home or on the go. You also get a kid’s mode which gives you a little more parental controls than what the fire HD offers so you can be assured they only have access to child safe content. Plus, the built-in eye care protection helps to reduce the risk of eye strain. The key features are: Display. 10.3-inch 1920 by 1200 full HD 10-point touch screen. Cameras. Significantly better than the FIRE HD 8 with 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. Security. Comes with face recognition which is something you don’t normally find at this price range. Battery. You’ll get about seven hours of video playback which may be the only weak point of this tablet. Great build quality. All metal body gives it a great premium look and feel. Expandable storage. Up to 256 gigabytes of storage.

You’ll find the solid build makes it a little heavier than most but it’s still easy to hold with even one hand while watching videos or reading. The display is noticeably brighter with better viewing angles compared to the Lenovo with rich colors and contrast so watching videos are detailed and clear. One big bonus of the Tab A 10.1 is its expandable storage up to 512 gigabytes which doubles the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus so if you like to keep your additional media on microSD, Samsung will be a better option for you.

Currently priced at 300 the entry-level iPad features a gorgeous, 10.2-inch, retina display, with vivid colors and sharp images and watching movies in 4k is amazing, but what’s also great about the iPad is that it’s not only for entertainment. It’s actually quite a capable productivity device. You’ll find with support for Apple’s smart keyboard and iPad OS 14 you can even connect a mouse or trackpad making your work efficient and seamless. You’ll find it’s convenient to work emails, work documents, or school assignments on the go. Plus, with support for apple’s pencil you can take notes, edit photos, draw sketch, or paint making it great for creatives. Except there isn’t anywhere to properly store your pencil when you’re not using it. The other caveat is that despite being a 2020 model it still uses a lightning cable and not USB-C. The key features are: 10.2-inch retina display. You’ll love the incredible detail and vivid colors. All day battery. You can expect up to 10 hours of mixed use. A12 bionic chip.
