Not everyone has the extra cash to buy super high-end tablets. I, for one, am not able to buy those amazing Galaxy Note Pros and Sony Xperia Z tablets. For guys who are budget conscious, here are the best Android tablets around $100.
Also, sometimes you need a cheap tablet for your growing kids (not toddlers) and want some better features with a low price point. This article will include some of the very best Android tablets under 100$ sweet spot.
I know how important can a tablet be in one’s life. I for one would never go to a class without one of my trusty tablets. Sure I don’t take notes on tablets but it is comforting to know that if the need arose; I have a competent device in my backpack. Android tablets for $100 are not going to wow you, this much I’m sure, but they will provide you with valuable features and those too at a cheap price.
Personally, I have bought 5 Android tablets in my life and three of them were under $100. So without further ado, let’s start the best Android tablets under 100$ list.
Note: The tablets featured on the best Android tablets under 200$ price list are not powerhouses. These are serviceable devices that can aid you in day-to-day usage. Do not expect them to run the latest and greatest games. The tablets are in no particular order; I recommend that you check them all before making a decision.
Galaxy Tab 3 Lite
Well, this is something new; the blue-green version of the tablet is suddenly available for a lot less cash. So naturally this tablet goes to the top of the list. It was also featured in the Android tablets under $200 list, well at least the black version.
So what do you get for your money? A 7-inch tablet with a 1.2 GHz processor and 8 GB of storage space is what 99 dollars will get you. The tablet has good WiFi connectivity and is very light too.
Acer Iconia Tab
Acer Iconia Tab is a great looking tablet but is considerably old now. This is the reason for its inexpensiveness. The tablet itself provides you with a 7-inch display that is relatively sharp and has good viewing angles.
The tablet comes with a MediaTek dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The specs are nothing to talk about but at this price range, we are stuck with mediocre ones. The tablet also comes with a rear 2 MP camera that is a nice touch.
Acer Iconia One
If you ask me, I would recommend this tablet over the one above. Why? Well, because it comes with an updated version of Android, which is Android 4.3 Jelly Bean by the way.I know it is not 5.0 or something but hey it’s one of the best versions of Android so I won’t be complaining.
The tablet also comes with an Intel Atom Dual Core processor clocked at a nice 1.6 GHz. This translates to better performance overall. This tablet also comes with a 2 MP camera on its back, which is always good to have.
Asus MeMO Pad 7
This is a little older version of the Asus MeMo Pad tablet, but it is still one of the best tablets available under $100. The 7-inch tablet comes with dual-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and 16 GB of onboard storage space.
The screen is bright and viewing angles are also excellent. The tablet also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion. This is one of the few tablets that support 64 GB microSD cards. The MeMO Pad 7 is also one of the best-looking tablets around. The narrow side bezels add to the charm and sleekness.
Polaroid 7 Inch
If you are short on cash and need a semi-good and very reliable Android tablet, then get this one from Polaroid. It’s a no-name company (in the tablet market) with a peculiarly interesting Android offering.
Unlike the Chinese tablets that are flooding the markets, this one is Google approved. So it comes with Google Play Store and subsequent services. The tablet has large bezels around the corners giving it a framed picture look, but it also makes it a bit sturdier.
I would have listed the Chinese tablets in the article, but they are not true Android devices. The same goes for the Kindle tablets offered by Amazon. While the Kindles are great, they use a modified version of Android. This means there is no Google Play Store on them.
These were some good Android tablets under $100 price tag, and I hope they will serve you well. If you have any suggestions of questions, please tell or ask in the comments below.
