Recently we brought you a selection with the tablets with the best quality / price ratio of 2017, in all ranks, but the truth is that in recent times they have debuted a good number of basic range tablets, perfect for those who want a tablet for simple tasks and are not worth spending too much, and it is necessary to review the best.

MediaPad T3 8

We started with one of the most recent models, so much that in fact it has not yet reached the stores, and in fact we do not know how much it will cost exactly: the MediaPad T3. In any case, and although it may not end up being one of those that leave us a better quality / price ratio, we must recognize that it is one of the best features it offers without entering the mid-range terrain, with HD resolution , Snapdragon 425 processor and up to 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage capacity, in addition to arriving with Android Nougat, something that many higher-level tablets cannot boast yet. What makes it stand out, however, is its design and its metal housing.

Also very recent, although a little less, but in any case still pending to reach the stores, we have the Lenovo Tab 4 8. Its technical specifications are very similar to those of the MediaPad T3, with HD resolution also and the same Snapdragon 425 processor, only in this case we do not have a model that gives us extra memory and storage, and we have to settle for 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM. It must be recognized that its design is somewhat simpler too, without a metal casing to show off. Also here we have already Android Nougat, and in this case we can put a price on it, because Lenovo He already gave it to us on the day of his presentation: 169 euros.

Aquaris M8

The technical specifications of the Aquaris M8 They are very similar to those of the previous two (HD resolution, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage capacity), but it is true that instead of a Qualcomm processor we find a Mediatek. Nor will we enjoy Android Nougat, but it still comes with Android Marshmallow. In return, it must be said that it has a plus when it comes to using it as a multimedia device, which is the front stereo speakers, and you can find a little cheaper than what the others are apparently going to be, for about 150 euros without looking too much, even though its official price on the bq website is a bit higher.

Fire 8 HD

Although it does not have the charm of novelty, because it has been on sale for some time now, one of the best basic range options remains the Fire 8 HD and, we even bet on the version without special promotions, which costs 120 euros (If the ads do not bother us too much we can save 10 euros), it is difficult to find a tablet with similar characteristics for that price, even if we have to make some concessions, such as that we stay with 1.5 GB of RAM or that the Mediatek is a processor instead of Qualcomm, in addition to the fact that Amazon tablets use Fire OS, which changes a lot compared to pure Android, and have some limitations, although solutions can always be found.
