5 Best Tablets Under $200 in 2020

Tablets have been around for quite some time, although the market didn’t really take off until the Apple iPad hit the markets several years ago. Knowing how expensive the iPads have become today, it makes sense to look at alternatives from Android manufacturers. This creates a new kind of problem given that there are several tablets available on the cheap which makes the choice significantly harder than usual. This is why we’ve decided to compile a list of some of the best tablets available in the market that won’t break the bank.

We will be listing out five Android tablets that are sold for under $200. Bear in mind that given the price tag, not all of these tablets belong to the high-end segment. But given that budget tablets are some of the most sought after devices in the market, we’re certain this will appeal to a wide majority of buyers.

5 Best Tablets Under $200

Amazon Fire HD 10

Amazon took the market by storm with its 10-inch Fire HD tablet which has since been updated multiple times. The current iteration is massively popular and comes with the standard set of Amazon features on board. This means that even though it runs Android, it doesn’t come with some of Android’s core apps like Google Play Store, Gmail and others. However, there is a full blown browser on board, so some features can be accessed that way. There are web versions of YouTube available in the form of an app from the Amazon Appstore, which are worth a look as well.

In terms of hardware prowess, the Fire HD 10 comes with a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, as well as a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a forked version of Android. The Fire HD 10 also packs stereo speakers with Dolby Sound, offering optimum audio performance from the onboard speakers. It’s a pretty decent product, but the real highlight here is the price. You can get the Fire HD 10 in Black, Punch Red, and Marine Blue colors.

ASUS ZenPad 8

ASUS is no stranger to the tablet industry and has been involved in the segment for quite some time now. The ZenPad 8 was launched quite a while ago, but it’s still relevant thanks to the hardware and software combination used on board. Unlike the Fire HD 10, this one comes with the full version of Android, complete with Google Play services and all the apps that Google offers on its mobile devices. What struck me about this tablet is the screen to body ratio 76.5%, making it smaller than most 7-inch tablets in the market.

The tablet packs ab 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, MediaTek MT8163 quad-core processor, 32GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB), 2GB of RAM, a 2-megapixel front camera, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The tablet runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Zen UI, including some of ASUS’ customizations. While the company doesn’t mention the battery capacity, the tablet reportedly comes with an 8-hour battery backup, which is pretty decent for any tablet.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3

Lenovo is pretty decent when it comes to computers, but it’s also made a name for itself in the tablet industry with offerings like the Yoga. We’re talking about the Yoga Tab 3 in particular, which is the company’s budget ranged offering in the Yoga lineup. This one comes with almost all the design attributes of the Yoga Tab 3 barring a few exceptions. What makes it special is the fact that it comes with a uniquely positioned camera at the bottom hinge, while the rear panel consists of resting plate to keep it steady on flat surfaces.

This also means you can pair wireless keyboards to use this pretty much as a laptop. Lenovo, however, has somewhat compromised in the hardware department. The Yoga Tab 3 packs an 8-inch 1366 × 768 display and an 8-megapixel 180 degrees rotatable camera. Weighing less than a pound, this is definitely one of the lighter tablets going around. The tablet also supports Lenovo’s AnyPen technology, allowing any conductive object to be used as a stylus or pen. The manufacturer claims the tablet can run for 20 hours on a single charge. This is a big claim to make and might heavily depend on your usage preferences.

Amazon Fire HD 8

Amazon’s second tablet on this list, the Fire HD 8 is a budget offering that has set the benchmark for what a low-cost tablet should be like. the Fire HD 8 packs an 8-inch HD display, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage. Since this is an Amazon product, it comes with Alexa features built-in, allowing you to make calls, check out the score or more using just your voice. Amazon claims that this tablet is up to 2x more durable than the iPad mini 4. While the native storage might not be sufficient, we particularly like the fact that it comes with a microSD card slot for storage expansion (up to 400GB).

While Fire HD tablets don’t run a full-blown version of Android, it comes with a forked version, which means it misses out on Google Play Services. However, it comes with apps for services like Netflix, Prime Video, Facebook, Twitter etc. This is a really cheap tablet and will cost you under $100.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A

This one’s strictly for those who don’t pay too much attention to the hardware but simply want a cost effective tablet. Noticeably, the tablet is not the newest on the block. But for the price you’re paying, it’s definitely worth it. The Galaxy Tab A 7.0 comes with a 7-inch HD display, 8GB of expandable storage (up to 200GB), 1.5GB of RAM, a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor, and Android 5.1 Lollipop. The company claims that the battery can last for up to 11 hours on a single use, which is pretty decent considering its size. It also comes with a rear and front facing camera, which is becoming a prerequisite for tablets. The retailer is currently selling the tablet in a solitary White variant. Customer reviews are fairly positive for the product.
