Currently, the cheapest Android tablets that we can find in the market are those that were created approximately 5 years ago. They come with an Android version that dates from the date they were created. That is, they have really old versions of Android, which Google and most Play Store applications no longer support.

Consequently, the tablet you purchase must have, at a minimum, a version of Android that is not about to be abandoned and that, in addition, supports most applications. Therefore, we recommend Do not buy tablets with Android version lower than Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).

Some tablets do not connect to the Play Store

Google allowed the tablets to connect to the Play Store just in the Honeycomb version (3.0); hence, tablets with Android 2.3 have never had official access to the store. Currently,the latest version of Google Play Store onlyis available for Android 4.1 or higher.

In addition, it should be mentioned that a lot of tablets made in China do not have the Play Store. Some do not even have the Android operating system. This is because Google services in China are very limited. So, before buying a Chinese tablet, ask first if you have Android and if you have the Play Store or, failing that, if it is possible to install it.

Do you want a tablet that is both a portable computer?

Imitating the style of Microsoft Surface a bit, Google created the Pixel tablet; Some devices that have a removable keyboard to be used also as Android laptops. Undoubtedly, buying a tablet that can be a laptop at the same time is an important option that you should also consider.

Keep in mind that there are two models of these tablets / laptops from Google. The first model that went on the market was the Pixel C in 2015, which today uses the operating system Android 8.0 Oreo. The second model was the Pixel Slate, launched on the market in 2018. The latter model is markedly different from its predecessor because it has Chrome OS; Google's operating system for its laptops. But don't worry, Chrome OS already runs Android applications.

Today we can find tablets that connect to the Internet with only Wi-Fi and others that also have 4G or 3G connectivity. 4G tablets are the most expensive. That is why it is important to ask if it really is worth investing in a 4G tablet.

Answering the question, 4G tablets are not very necessary If you already have a 4G mobile with which you can send Wi-Fi to the tablet. On the other hand, if you don't have a mobile phone to do that, it will be worth buying a 4G tablet to surf the Internet fluently (as long as you hire an extra or specific rate).
