1. Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S has been a hit in the tablet scene with an ultra-thin, lightweight design. This Android tablet is colorful with a brilliant screen that blows the competition out of the water.
The 8.4-inches isn’t the only tablet with a spectacular display but of all of those other costly slates; the Tab S takes the top price in this regards.

2. Google Nexus 9 Tablet
Google’s Nexus 9 is the Gandalf of pure Android tablets. Nexus 9 became the first Android 5.0 device when it launched in late 2014, and it spearheaded Android 5.1.1 when the update launched in March.
It brought back the silent mode that Lollipop axed. We all loved that feature.
When it comes to looking out for the pros and cons of this tablet, its comparison with Nexus 7 comes into being. But when you check out the new specs, you will understand why this Android tablet is so highly rated. We are talking about the latest NVidia 64-bit processor, an above average 2GB RAM, dual front-facing speakers and a decent battery to keep it all up and running for a little over nine hours playing your favorite music and watching blockbuster movies.
This doesn’t mean the Nexus 9 can measure up to some of the biggest Android tablets in the game but when you consider the fact that this is an entry-level tablet, you might begin to understand why it deserves all the kudos it’s getting. Without a microSD slot, you’re stuck with the 32GB Wi-Fi mode which is quite convenient to use, nevertheless. Google Nexus 9 is an 8.9-inch upgrade to last year’s Nexus 7 and a great introduction to latest specifications and worth buying from a budget-friendly point of view at an asking price of under $400, making it the best tablet for the money.
3. HP Envy 8 Note 5002
Brought to the market at a really low entry price, the HP Envy 8 Note is actually worth every expense spent on it. It’s an 8-inch tablet built on a plastic frame and a super IPS LCD screen on a 1920X1200 resolution display. It’s not as premium as some other slates on the market but it still shines as it should. It features an internal Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen for protection and the processor runs a 1.44GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8300 coupled with a 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage space. These specs are a bit like the standard for most Android tablets within the mid-range category but we love the HP Envy 8 Note’s battery life as it can offer as much as 6 hours on a single charge. Which is quite above the average when you consider the processing speed and the number of processes it churns out. We consider the HP Envy Note 8 a great buy and surely one of the best tablets that you can purchase under $400.
