If you're looking for a cheap Android tablet, you don't want to get stung with a budget model that has an incredibly attractive price tag but can do little more than a fancy brick with a screen. 

That's, unfortunately, the case with many off-brand cheap Android tablets, and if you're not careful you can end up wasting your money. Cheaper Android tablet prices usually range from $100 - $300 (not counting Amazon's Fire devices), so you're spending a little more than the $50 budget brands but getting a whole lot more out of your purchase.

We've handpicked the best cheap Android tablets and we're showing you the lowest prices from around the web on each one. That means you won't get stuck paying for something so slow it can barely load an email, and you won't have to shell out hundreds of dollars for the latest and greatest devices if you just want to catch up on some streaming. 

Plus, we may see even more discounts than usual throughout November as Black Friday 2021 is now underway and we're monitoring all the best Black Friday tablet deals.

A premium mini tablet with power to spare

In a sea of slates and smartphones, crafting a device that has enough personality to stand out and enough quality to be worth caring about is a difficult proposition.

With the Tab 4 8, Lenovo has succeeded in producing something with a flavor of its own, and something that makes the mid-range Android tablet market worth attention. On its own merits however, the Tab 4 8 is an surprisingly solid all-rounder, with great performance, a decent screen, solid battery life, and a comfortable design.

3. Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

One of the best Android tablets

: | Weight: 459g | Dimensions: 243 x 159 x 7.1mm | OS: Android 10 | Screen size: 10.4 inches | Resolution: 2,000 x 1,200 | CPU: Exynos 9610 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | microSD slot: Yes | Battery: 7,040mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 5MP

Solid performance
Sleek, slim design
S Pen stylus included
A little pricier

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a budget-friendly version of the Tab S6 with a thin, sleek design like its competitor, the Apple iPad. The Tab S6 Lite was released just last year and features a 10.4-inch display with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.

You're paying a little more for this cheap Android tablet considering the budget prices of Lenovo and Samsung's models. However, you're certainly picking up the functionality to make up for it - with the S Pen included for easy note taking, USB-C connection, and a premium build quality. The S6 Lite also provides an impressive 13 hours of battery life and is available in your color choice of Chiffon Pink, Angora Blue, or Oxford Gray.

4. Amazon Fire HD 8

The perfect Fire tablet for most users

Display: 8 inches | Resolution: 1280 x 800 | Memory: 2GB RAM | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Cameras: 2-megapixel front-facing and 2-megapixel rear-facing | Battery Life: 12 hours

Hands-free Alexa
Lots of storage
Low price
Upgraded camera
Limited app selection

The Amazon Fire HD 8 isn't the cheapest Fire tablet on the market - that would be the Fire 7 at just $49.99 / £49.99. However, you are getting a serious boost in specs and features for the sake of about $30 / £30 extra. The HD 8 packs a better, bigger, brighter display, with more RAM, Dolby Atmos audio, and a 12 hour battery life. 

It's worth noting, however, that these tablets run on Amazon's own Fire OS. While this is based on an Android operating system, you won't have access to the Google Play store here, rather using Amazon's own app library for access to services like Netflix, YouTube and email clients.

5. Amazon Fire HD 10

Amazon's bargain big-screen tablet

Weight: 504g | Dimensions: 262 x 159 x 9.8mm | Screen size: 10.1 inches | Resolution: 1920 x 1200 | CPU: Octa-core 2.0 GHz | Memory: 2GB RAM | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Cameras: 2 MP front and rear-facing | Battery Life: 12 hours

Large HD display
Long battery life
Includes USB-C charging
Hands-free with Alexa
Best for Amazon customers

Amazon gave the Fire HD 10-inch tablet a much needed overhaul in 2019, thankfully without raising the price. The largest Fire tablet is now 30% faster thanks to the new 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and comes with 32GB of storage, a full HD 1080p screen, and 2GB of RAM. In short, it's one of the best 10-inch tablets you'll find for such a price. And it comes equipped with Alexa as well.

6. Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro

Because who doesn't need an integrated projector

Weight: 666.8g | Dimensions: 246.9 x 179.1 x 4.7mm | OS: Android Marshmallow | Screen size: 10.1-inch | Resolution: 1600 x 2560 | CPU: Intel Atom x5-Z8500 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | microSD slot: Yes | Battery: 10,200mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 5MP

Integrated projector
Great audio and screen
Glitchy UI

With the Yoga Tab 3 Pro, Lenovo has delivered a fairly unique Android tablet that includes a projector inside and has generally strong multimedia skills. Its large 10.1-inch screen is one of the bigger ones on our tablet list, but that projector and all of the other components make this a weighty option. Nevertheless, you're not going to get a more convenient tablet and projector combo in any other cheap Android tablets.
