Blackview Tab 16 – Best Choice For a Budget Tablet Under $190
Source: Tech X Reviews English
Blackview Tab 16 is a good tablet that has the potential to beat its competitors in the price range it belongs to and is considered a mid-range tablet, I think is one of the best budget tablets in 2022, with a good processor, abundant memory of 256GB, 8GB RAM, support fast charging 18W and an FHD+ screen and the most important feature is Widevine L1 support that allows you to watch streaming services in high quality. but that does not make it flawless as it lacks a fingerprint reader and has acceptable camera quality. however it gives you powerful performance at a low price, so if you are looking for a tablet at this time, you will not get anything better than Tab 16 in this price range.

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.

This brand from the Blackview International Group was created in Hong Kong in 2013. Smartphones are the focus of marketing.

However, there are only few reviews and the market shares are very low (2016).

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
