Notebookcheck's Top 10 Tablets under 250 Euros

Daniel Schmidt (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 07/11/2017

Price contenders. Here you will find the best tablets under 250 Euros (~$285) reviewed by Notebookcheck. Our list of top models is regularly updated, maintained and commented on and should assist in purchasing decisions. Q1 2018 update.

For the original German article, see here.

Several years ago, Apple's iPad 1 initiated a flood of new tablet devices. Due to competition from the Far East, very cheap tablets have also become available. While the best products (see our Top 10 Tablet Charts) still cost above 400 Euros (~$456), there are interesting entry-level devices, which might absolutely be able to satisfy standard users.

Top 10 tablets from the last 12 months – current reviews are listed first
Link: all reviewed devices of this category, ordered by total rating

Editors' Comments

While there are mainly expensive devices from Apple and Samsung in our Tablet Charts, various manufacturers are represented in the entry-level segment. These include exotic species from the Far East as well as cheap devices from known brands. Two sizes dominate: about 8-inches and about 10-inches. Since the tablet market is shrinking more and more, we do not update this top list monthly but will update it quarterly.

There are no changes this quarter, but the Medion tablet is a bit more expensive and it will have to leave the ranking if this trend continues. The devices from Lenovo's Tab4-series and the Acer Iconia Tab 10 A3-A50 also have ambitions for this ranking; the latter already scratches the 250-Euros mark.

1st

Xiaomi MiPad 2
Xiaomi MiPad 2

Xiaomi is one of the Chinese brands which might also achieve an international breakthrough soon. With the MiPad 2 (see review), the company set a high standard for the competition in terms of price-performance ratio: thin and light case made from aluminum, bright and high-resolution IPS display, and a good battery life of about 7 hours in real-world web-surfing. However, the storage capacity of only 16 GB might turn out to be a bottleneck. Moreover, the storage capacity cannot be expanded. In addition, you also have to do without GPS (navigation).

Currently, the MiPad 2 is only available through importers, who for example offer it via Amazon. This is a pity, since the device showed a convincing performance in our review in view of its attractive price and is recommendable for use with streaming services and online offers thanks to its good display.

2nd

Asus ZenPad 8.0 (Z380M)
Asus ZenPad 8.0 (Z380M)

Asus delivers a very impressive device with its ZenPad 8.0 Z380M: The affordable tablet presents good to very good outcomes in all significant sectors and regularly outshines considerably more expensive rivals. The 8.0-inch IPS display features a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. The tablet is powered by a quad-core processor from MediaTek. In addition, it features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage.

In our test, especially the good display (despite low resolution) and the decent battery runtimes could convince. The GPS properties are really good. Only the microSD-card reader is a bit slow and charging the battery takes slightly long at about four-and-a-half hours.

3rd

Huawei MediaPad T2 10.0 Pro
Huawei MediaPad T2 10.0 Pro

The Huawei MediaPad T2 10.0 Pro features a high-resolution 10.1-inch IPS display, a slightly older mid-range SoC with eight cores, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB flash memory. The storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card. Optionally, an LTE variant is also available, which even offers telephony functionality. The speakers also sound quite good, which emphasizes the multimedia properties of the tablet, but not the business qualities suggested by its name.

We did not like the long charging times of 4.5 hours so much. In addition, the microSD-card reader is quite slow.

4th

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016)
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016)

The bright, high-resolution display is definitely a small highlight of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016). Samsung's own octa-core chip delivers sufficient performance for everyday tasks and for media playback. However, the system reaches its limits with demanding games, which often require reducing resolution and details. The memory capacities (2 GB of RAM, 16 GB flash memory) are sufficient and a microSD-card slot is also available. In addition, dual-band Wi-Fi is on board and the LTE variant is already available for under 250 Euros (~$285). The only complaint in our test is the unfavorable position of the speakers.

It is positive that Samsung provides an update to Google Android 7.0 Nougat.

Medion Lifetab P10505
Medion Lifetab P10505

Pros and cons are close in the Medion Lifetab P10505. The tablet features great performance, display resolution and battery capacity. It remains quite cool and also allows productive use thanks to a micro-HDMI port. On the other hand, the display is dark and very bluish. The cameras shoot images of very modest quality and the power consumption is very high. However, the Lifetab can compensate for the latter with quite a big battery. It is powered by an Intel chip with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card.

An update to Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow is available on the manufacturer's website, but the update has to be done manually.

6th

Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017)
Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017)

The Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017, 7th Generation) is the largest tablet from Amazon. It is equipped with a 10.1-inch IPS screen with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. You also get decent stereo speakers, and the performance of the tablet is very good, despite the slightly outdated SoC. Amazon sells SKUs with 32 or 64 GB internal storage, and both can be expanded via microSD cards. The memory size is 2 GB, and Alexa is also included.

The tablet appears a bit outdated, but does not reveal any serious problems. However, it is based on the old Android version 5.1 Lollipop with Amazon's own Fire OS 5.6. A new Fire OS version based on Android 7 is planned, but an update for older models is unlikely. The software is also heavily limited to Amazon's own products, but you can install Google's Play Store manually.

Lenovo Tab 3 10 Business
Lenovo Tab 3 10 Business

The Lenovo Tab 3 10 Business has several advantages. The display is really good and can be extensively adjusted. The device gets hardly warmer in use. Surfing is quite fast via Wi-Fi and mobile Internet. The disadvantages are a weak MediaTek-SoC and high power consumption under load. With 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory, the configuration is good and gives a fine bundle. Moreover, the dual-band Wi-Fi module is capable of the fast ac standard and the tablet supports LTE.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 (2016)
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 (2016)

Samsung uses such a compact, lightweight design for its Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2016) SM-T280 that it could be mistaken for a big phablet at first glance. Although the casing is completely made of plastic, it is appreciated thanks to its non-slip back. The tablet is powered by a weak quad-core SoC, which features an even weaker GPU. In addition, it comes with 1.5 GB of RAM and just 8 GB internal storage. The latter can be expanded with a microSD card, to which you can also move apps. In addition, the battery life is very decent. In return, it takes about four hours to fully recharge the device. The Wi-Fi module can only use the 2.4 GHz network, yet you should not expect too much in view of the low price.

The update to Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow was already rolled out; a further update to Android 7 Nougat is not planned.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017)
Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017)

The Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017, 7. Generation) has an 8-inch IPS screen with 1280 x 800 pixels. You also get a lower mainstream SoC with a slow GPU, 1.5 GB RAM as well as 16 or 32 GB internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD card. The package is completed by decent stereo speakers, long battery runtimes, and fast ac-WiFi.

The tablet appears a bit outdated, but does not reveal any serious issues when you consider the price. The cameras, however, are really bad and it is based on the old Android version 5.1 Lollipop with Amazon's own Fire OS 5.6. A new Fire OS version based on Android 7 is planned, but an update for older models is unlikely. The software is also heavily limited to Amazon's own products, but you can install Google's Play Store manually.

Huawei MediaPad T3 10
Huawei MediaPad T3 10

The Huawei MediaPad T3 10 is an entry-level tablet, which is already shipped with Google Android 7.0 Nougat. Apart from a Snapdragon of the 4xx series, it features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage, dual-band Wi-Fi and LTE Cat. 7. The resolution of 1280x800 pixels appears slightly low in view of a display diagonal of 9.7-inch. However, this largely ensures a smooth gaming experience and decent battery runtimes.

We feel that the tablet's speaker emphasizes high tones too much and GPS is slightly too imprecise.
