Amazon is the leader on the market of tablets, not expensive. The Amazon Fire 7, for example, has, for less than 80 €, a good enough screen in addition to Alexa, a slot for microSD for space-saving storage and an operating system that is very easy to use.
According to us, the Fire HD 8 deserves the 1st place, because for a few euros extra, it has a larger screen, better quality and has many features.
Let’s add also, that the Fire is not an Android tablet standard and it does not include Google applications..
The purchase of a tablet for less than 300 €, you have to really pay attention to the manufacturers and brands you’ve never heard of.
Their products may have low performance, be equipped with the bad screens and battery little powerful.
We therefore recommend that you read the opinions before you begin, and if you don’t find any then go your way.
Choose a tablet input range.
Before you buy a tablet cheap, pay attention to the characteristics presented below.
Determine if you prefer a screen of 7 or more wide, some models measure 9-10 inches. However, in general, 7 or 8 inches is enough, especially if you intend to take your tablet with you everywhere (there are also smaller models).
For the slab of the screen, the IPS technology guarantees good colors and good viewing angles. For the vast majority, their brightness and contrast are also correct.
The resolution is not a given, if important, should especially look at the density of the pixels, the smaller screens don’t require as many pixels as the great ; opt for a tablet with 220 pixels per inch at a minimum.
When you buy a tablet input range, don’t expect to get a storage space as a result. However, some manufacturers, as an alternative, to include in their product a slot for a micro SD card.
Note that the older tablets Amazon do not have, unlike the past generations.
A space of 16 Gb is a minimum. In fact, 8 Gb without the possibility of adding a microSD card is simply too limited because half (or more) of this capacity is taken up by the operating system and applications pre-installed, that you probably can’t remove..
Most of the sensors photos are relatively of lower quality, compared to those of the best smartphones. So don’t expect to get beautiful pictures and videos.
Don’t pay too much attention to the GHz or even to the RAM. A high number had no impact on the performance.
If the tablet Fire is not what you are looking for then why don’t you turn to an Android (iPad not included, obviously not in the category of tablets at a small price).
The operating system determines not only the pre-installed applications, but also those that you can download and use. Google Play has a catalogue of huge apps, also, it is rare that an iOS app is available on iPad and not on Android.
