10 cheap tablets from companies you've acutally heard of
posted by Nick T. / Jun 29, 2014, 6:03 AM
So, you're looking for a cheap tablet that doesn't come in a white, unlabeled box, eh? Well, the good news is that there are many awesome and relatively cheap brand-name tablets to pick from. Here's a few examples: the LG G Pad 8.3 can be found online for less than 300 bucks, an 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 costs about $269, while the price of a 2013 Google Nexus 7 tablet hovers around the $200 mark.
But we're sure that to some, even that could seem too much to spend on a tablet – first-time tablet buyers, those buying a tablet for their child, or folks who are simply looking for the ultimate bargain. That's why we decided to do a little digging and find the cheapest tablets from companies that people have actually heard of. Here are 10 of the tablets that we found, sorted by price from high to low.

Asus Fonepad 7, Php 5,995. Better features, half the price. Don't buy Samsung, over-priced and depreciates too fast and give it a month or two and another model comes out. And the Phil economy is doing just fine, thank you. If anything, blame the shameless politicians.

Android on tablets is very unpleasant experience, on these it sure is complete disaster.

Damn, Slate 7 Extreme is quite a beast for that price. Still, only 1 GB of RAM, but that Tegra 4 sure can handle a lot of demanding apps. It even scores good on benchmarks :o Though, what is the problem here, why is it priced so low? Something fishy going on....

2GB of RAM should be standard for most tablets. Unfortunately, the Dell is the only one on this list to have just that.

So the LG G Pad 8.3 is still the best and most affordable tablet by a known manufacturer! Nexus not available everywhere in this world! The Galaxy Note 8 comes close,but without aluminum back and sexy design!

The Tab 4 7" is a Mavel CPU, not a snapdragon. This per XDA, and I have no reason to not believe them because there are different root methods. I was actually considering getting one for my car until I realized that.

I'd rather spend less on a tablet rather than spending 400$ on a iPad tablet. For 400$ u might as well buy a laptop that can do basically everything more than a tablet or in this case Surface. Plus you forget to mention the Nextbook 99$ worlds cheapest tablet n RCA 79$. I Only buy a tablet that would only get updates from GOOGLE ANDROID OS.

Extremely Happy with my nexus 7 2013, but if I would buy a high end model now, then it would be iPad Air, blame google for not making android a good enough tablet's platform, also blame the devs.
