Why We Like it?

The Surface Go 4 brings welcome upgrades like a faster processor and improved cameras in a slim, portable 2-in-1. The bright touchscreen and responsive pen make it great for note-taking and light work.

While not a huge leap over the previous model, it’s a capable small tablet for productivity and entertainment.

Pros:

  1. Affordable prices starting at $189
  2. Good battery life of over 7 hours
  3. Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos
  4. Headphone jacks

Cons:

  1. Mediocre camera quality
  2. Lower performance than competitors
  3. Only 60Hz display on M10 Plus

Why We Like it?

We like the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus for its solid build, nearly pure Android experience, and support for optional active pen. Performance trails rivals, but remains smooth for basics. At discounted prices, Lenovo’s tabs warrant consideration alongside Xiaomi and Samsung budget options.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab A8

Pros:

  1. Affordable price
  2. Loud quad speakers
  3. Long battery life

Cons:

  1. Low-resolution display
  2. Underpowered processor
  3. Short software support

Why We Like it?

The Galaxy Tab A8 is a budget tablet with loud speakers and decent battery life. However, the mediocre display, laggy performance, and short 2-year software support make it hard to recommend in 2023. More powerful mid-range options with longer support provide better value for just a bit more money.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

  2. No fingerprint sensor
  3. Screen only 60Hz refresh rate

Why We Like it?

The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite punches above its weight with smooth performance, long battery life, and Samsung’s S-Pen for creativity and productivity.

Though the screen and camera have compromises, for the price this remains one of the best Android tablets with stylus capabilities.

Why We Like it?

With Android 14 and ample 128GB storage, the budget-friendly Teclast P30T brings modern software and roomy capacity. Though held back by mediocre RAM, screen, and cameras, the P30T’s super affordable pricing makes it a compelling starter tablet for basic tasks and entertainment.

  1. Lightweight and portable
  2. Good battery life
  3. Bright, full HD display
  4. Includes stylus

Cons:

  1. Keyboard and trackpad just okay
  2. Maximum 1080p external display output
  3. Mediocre webcam

Why We Like it?

The Asus CM3 Detachable strikes an appealing balance between laptop and tablet. Its bright 10.5-inch screen and long battery life make media consumption a joy, while the included USI stylus adds versatility for note-taking and art. Though the keyboard and trackpad could be better, overall the CM3 is a compelling lightweight 2-in-1.

Blackview OSCAL Pad 16

Pros:

  1. Good battery life (12 hrs)
  2. Good storage (256GB + 1TB expansion)

Cons:

  1. Heavy (515g)
  2. Mediocre processor (Unisoc T606)
  3. Only USB-C charging

Why We Like it?

The Blackview OSCAL Pad 16 offers a big 10.5″ FHD screen and excellent 12 hour battery life for watching videos or browsing. With ample 256GB storage expandable to 1TB, it can hold tons of apps and media files. However, it is quite heavy and uses an unfamiliar Unisoc processor. Overall, the Pad 16 is a decent budget tablet for entertainment if you don’t mind the weight.
