A tablet is a wondeful invention that has been popularized worldwide since the iPad’s first launch. Luckily for us, there much cheaper models, and it won’t take a long time until you can choose what is the best value for the money tablet available on Amazon.
Tablets are wonderful, they are light, they are small and portable, while at the same time fast, reliable and can be used alone or combined with a PC or other devices to upgrade the efficiency of multiple tasks, ranging from restaurant businesses to the aviation industry.
In this post, I will analyse devices that I could recommend as the best value for the money tablet you can possibly from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk (you can also find them in other retail portals such as Aliexpress or eBay, but I prefer to recommend Amazon most of the times because it’s shipping system tends to be mor reliable on average).
The value tables which are listed here have been selected following an specific criteria to ensure that they have a good performance, up to date software and components, but also, an accessible price. To go a bit more in detail what has been treated as a requirement here, I can emphasize these points:
-At least Android 4.2 OS, this is already a somewhat older version, but anything below that, would most certainly affect the performance of your apps, as conflicts with newer apps and updates can increase.
-At least a quad core processor. While most of the really good tabs have octa core processors now, a quad core one will still deliver very good results, and when it comes to value tablets, that would be a minimum requirement when it comes to processors.
-Value equals price. While there are quite a significant number of tablets above $200 and some even above $500, we will focus here on tablets around 100 dollars, which is a quite good price range, just not too cheap or not too expensive for a decent tablet.
