Android tablets like magch are a great alternative to iPads and Microsoft Surfaces. They typically cost a lot less and are more customisable.
One of the biggest draws is that these devices run Google’s Android operating system, which is far more open-source than iOS or Windows OS. This means that you can customise a tablet’s look and feel in much the same way as you can with desktop computers.
TCL Tab 10 5G
The TCL Tab 10 5G is a capable Android tablet that can do a lot of things. It has a widescreen display, runs Android 12, and supports Face Unlock for added security.
The device is powered by a MediaTek Kompanio 800T 5G chipset and 4GB of RAM. It also comes with 32GB of internal storage and can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD cards.
It features a 10.1″ FHD display that is enhanced by TCL’s NXTVISION technology for real-time image and video enhancements. This means you’ll enjoy a sharp and vivid experience whether you’re watching movies or playing games.
The tablet is backed by an 8000mAh battery that should last for hours on end without charging. It also offers a number of features to help you manage your battery consumption throughout the day. You can even turn on a battery saver mode to stretch battery life further.
Amazon Fire HD 10
The Amazon Fire HD 10 is an affordable, versatile tablet that comes with a lot of the same features as more expensive devices. It has a good screen, great battery life, Alexa integration and reasonable performance for the money.
The Fire HD 10 has a few tweaks this year, including an update to Fire OS and new software features like split-screen mode for two apps. It’s also a bit slimmer and lighter than last year, reducing the device’s weight by about 8%.
It has a fast, snappy processor and plenty of RAM to make it feel more like an Android phone than a low-end tablet. This makes it surprisingly responsive for a budget device, with no lag or noticeable delays when scrolling or opening apps.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Powered by the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, the Galaxy Tab S6 is one of the best tablets on the market. It packs a good amount of power into a super thin and light body.
Its display is a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED panel, and it has a high resolution and an excellent contrast ratio. You can choose between two color modes: Natural, which has a slightly warmer, but still DCI-P3-wide, color gamut, or Vivid, which makes games and videos really pop.
Battery life is excellent, too. Samsung says it can get 15 hours of video playback and a full 9 hours of internet use.
Lenovo Yoga Tab 3
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is an Android tablet with a unique design that focuses on practicality. It features crystal-clear speakers and a sharp rotatable camera, both of which set it apart from the rest of the tablet market.
The tablet runs a low-end quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC that offers enough performance to handle casual gaming and up-to-date apps. However, it can’t compete with Apple’s slates when it comes to graphics-heavy games.
For $170, you’re getting a fairly well-equipped tablet that’s great for watching videos and browsing the web. If you’re looking for something more portable and powerful, though, the Amazon Fire HD 8 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 might be better options.
The tablet also has a rotatable cylindrical kickstand that folds out at the press of a button and can be used in four ways: hold, tilt, stand or hang. But it’s hard to get used to the angle at which you’ll need to rotate the device when using it in portrait mode.
