Cheap tablets on Amazon: which ones are worth the most?
January 24, 2018 at 20:00
If we are looking tablets on offer or with a good quality / price ratio you already know that Amazon is always one of the best options and, specifically in the field of cheap tablets It has one of the broadest catalogs, so much that sometimes it can cost us to decide for one of them. We review the models we have for 100 euros or less to highlight those that may be worth more.
Huawei MediaPad T3 7
We have already commented on several occasions that the MediaPad T3 7 It is one of our favorites among tablets of less than 100 euros and of course it is among those that we can get on Amazon, so it could not be missing in this list and, in fact, we think that it deserves to go in the lead, not so much because stand out in technical specifications, which are very similar always in this price range (1024 x 600 resolution, 1.3 GHz Mediatek processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage), but for being one of the most solvent and have a design more careful than usual, including metal housing. It must be said that it is also one of the best valued by buyers. It oscillates a little in price, yes, but it is easy to find it with a good discounts with respect to its official price. Right now we have it for 80 euros.
We always recommend making a slightly larger investment and betting on the 8-inch model, but if we want to exceed 100 euros, the Fire 7 is the other great option to consider in addition to the MediaPad T3 7: in design it is not As attractive as the Huawei tablet, but in technical specifications they are practically identical and the advantage in this case is that we do not have to be aware of offers (although from time to time there are, and very good): at any time we can buy it by 70 euros. The main reason we don't put it first is Fire OSbut it must be said that it is not difficult install Google Play on a Fire and it is true that this customization is very simple and intuitive, very appropriate for occasional users.
Alcatel Pixi 4 7
It is not as popular as the previous two, but the tablet Alcatel It is also a very solid option if we are looking for a cheap tablet and, in fact, it is difficult to find one that will cost us less while complying with quality minimums, since we have it for only 62 euros. The design is simpler, especially when compared to the Huawei tablet, but in technical specifications it does not have much to envy, although it is true that its processor is similar in features but older and its screen is TFT instead of LCD, which is also a lower option. Speaking of the screen, it should be specified that although the page appears to be 800 x 480, the Pixi 4 7 really has a 1024 x 600 resolution, like the others.
Lenovo Tab 3 7 Essential
Although with the new generation already available (but not at the moment in Amazon) the old model loses some charm, the Lenovo Tab 3 7 Essential It is still another good option, since at least we have guaranteed a satisfactory user experience (within certain limits, as always with tablets of this price range), although it is not exactly updated. It must be said that this is not so noticeable in the technical specifications as in the software: the screen is LCD, the processor is also a 1.3 GHz Mediatek and has 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage, as it is habitual. By 70 euros that costs right now is not the best value for money, but it is still good, and it is interesting that we can find the model with 16 GB still below 100 euros.
Low cost options
Together with the tablets that we have highlighted, we have a wide variety of low-cost tablets available below 100 euros and if we are looking for 10-inch models it is almost mandatory to resort to them. As general comments, the main problems with them is that they are often quite old models (it is not only a matter of the version of Android they are running, but also of components) and that they are not always as reliable as we could wish. For our experience with our own analysis we are inclined to the tablets of Energy System, although we must specify that the ones we have tried are superior models. The impressions that have left us the tablets of SPC They have also been quite good and the new models come even with Android Nougat, but in the most basic models we are not going to take advantage of it either and can stop them from mounting Allwinner processors instead of Mediatek.
