When it comes to tablets, you are absolutely spoilt for choice. Even if you are on a tight budget, there are plenty of options for you but it’s important to bear in mind that for under $350 (or £200), the choice is narrowed and you are certainly not going to get anything near the quality of an iPad Air for instance.
However, there are some great options so you should be able to get a tablet that suits you and your budget. What’s key is to get the best specs you can for the money, i.e. storage, screen size, pixel density, processor power and battery life. Here are our pick of the top 8 budget tablets; they are all based on a budget of just over $300 or under (that’s £200 or under).
1. Nexus 7
This is by the far the best tablet in its category. With a great design, good quality screen and rear camera, it really is the best budget tablet on the market. It has a pixel density of 323ppi, resulting in a stunning display that rivals that of the iPad Mini 2. It sports a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core Krait processor and 2GB of memory. The excellent build quality really makes you feel like you have got more tablet for your money.
