What is it? The Blackview Tab8 is the most affordable Android tablet that offers LTE connectivity.

What makes it special and why should I buy it?  The combination of Android 10,
two 4G SIM slots, a large screen, a tastefully polished metal finish and a very attractive price tag earns it high marks in our books. We have yet to find anything comparable for an outlay that low - but if you found something cheaper, let us know via Twitter

How much does it cost? It's available from Banggood for $134.99 (about £100/AU$177) until January 31, 2021, when you use code BGdec18, which applies to the HK & CN warehouses. That's an extra $5 off the current sale price of $139.99. Overall, you get more than 20% off its suggested retail price.

What else should we know? It comes with an 8-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB onboard storage, Android 10, a 10-inch full HD+ display (and a rare 16:10 aspect ratio), a 5mp front facing camera, a rear 13mp one, a 6580mAh battery, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, a Type-C connector, microSD card slot and a pair of speakers. It is also very thin (8.9mm) and surprisingly light (600g).

Any cons? There's no dedicated HDMI connector and a companion keyboard is available as a rather expensive $49 option.
