A cheap Android tablet can usually accomplish everything their more expensive counterparts can. If you encounter any shortcomings on inexpensive tablets, they usually will be one of the following:

  1. low quality cameracheap android tablet
  2. minimal memory/storage
  3. inferior screen

Here are some of the best inexpensive Android tablets we’ve found:

10.6” Fusion5 108 Octa Core Android 5.1 Lollipop Tablet

While the screen and camera are built in and rarely upgradeable, here’s what can be done to improve a cheap android tablet. Most tablets include a memory/storage expansion slot that will allow you to insert up to 32GB of storage. This will make plenty of room for additional apps or picture storage.

A cheap Android tablet will most often include wi-fi that is easily as good as, if not better than a brand name tablet. Wi-fi hardware either works or it doesn’t, there are very few occasions where it works poorly. If you find the hardware to work poorly, it cna usually be improved by updating to the manufacturer’s latest software image.

[UPDATE: I’ve found a really good tablet for kids! (AND IT’S CHEAP!)]
