Whether for surfing the Internet, watching films and series or as an e-reader: Tablets are extremely practical for everyday digital use. There is a suitable tablet for every budget.

SEver since Apple presented the first iPad on January 27, 2010, tablets have become an integral part of the world of consumer technology. Tablets are now increasingly moving towards replacing laptops – in terms of equipment and power, but also in terms of price. Nowadays you can pay more than a thousand euros for state-of-the-art tablets.

But that doesn’t have to be the case: Even those who don’t want to dig deep into their wallets will find the right model. If you can realistically assess which functions and specifications you really need and which you don’t, you can get real bargains when buying a tablet. If you want it really cheap, you can find tablets for less than 100 euros.

Cheap tablets: a quick overview of popular products

Another well-known manufacturer that can be found in this price range is Lenovo. With the Lenovo Tab M10* (operating system: Android 9.0), the Chinese company has a tablet in its range that offers sufficient performance for little money. The 10.3-inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and storage is 64 GB. It has an octa-core processor with an internal memory of 4 GB Ram. The stereo speaker system offers Dolby Atmos sound, allowing you to experience good quality sound even without headphones or external speakers.

Another option in this price range: the Amazon Fire HD 10* with a 10.1 inch Full HD display and 64 GB:

The Blackview* tablet is also in the price category under 200 euros. The Tab8 is an Android 10 tablet PC with 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM and a 4G LTE Dual SIM

Tablets up to 300 euros

If you want to invest almost 300 euros, you should take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7*. The battery capacity of the 10.4-inch TFT display is 7,040 mAh here. With 32GB there is plenty of storage for apps and documents. The Galaxy Tab in this version shows once again that you can also get Samsung tablets cheaply.

Other options in this price range include the Lenovo Tab P11* or the Asus ZenScreen*.

Tablets with keyboards: Are there also cheap models here?

If you want to convert your tablet into a laptop – at least as far as the respective computing power allows, you can buy a tablet with a keyboard. For example, the Microsoft Surface or similar models can act as a tablet and laptop at the same time. Separate keyboards are often available very cheaply from third-party suppliers. Find out in advance whether your device is compatible with the respective keyboard. It does not have to come from the manufacturer of the tablet itself – these are often significantly more expensive.

Conclusion

You can definitely get good tablets for cheap. Of course, a 200-euro tablet doesn’t offer the same image resolution as an iPad Pro with a retina screen – and a Samsung Galaxy tablet for just under 700 euros also has other options than one for 200 euros. But if you don’t want to work graphically with your tablet, for example, or simply don’t need the additional computing power, but want to use it as a media player, for reading the newspaper or watching films, you will also find good devices in the lower price ranges that you can definitely use will have much joy.
