Whether you’re looking to game on the go, watch your favorite films or are simply in the market for a computer, tablets are quickly becoming the go-to medium. While the Amazon Fire tablet was one of the first devices to essentially shape this market (and offer an alternative to the ubiquitous iPad), a growing number of companies have started releasing their own Android tablets, with each model sporting new functions, features and options. Today, these devices come with a wide range of memory and screen sizes, but all of the best Android tablets offer reliable batteries and an easy-to-use interface.
From portable powerhouses to beautiful displays, models for kids and more, we’ve rounded up eight of our favorite Android tablets on Amazon right now. Keep reading for our selection of the best Android tablets from top brands like Samsung, Amazon, and Lenovo.
1. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4
For when you want your Android tablet to act more like a full-blown PC, the Galaxy Tab S4 is there. It comes with a powerful 10.5-inch display and a stunning corner-to-corner 16:10 ratio to help provide a cinematic experience that’s sure to rival your big screen. With both 64GB and 256GB options, you can add up to 400GB of storage with a microSD. And when you add the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 keyboard cover to the mix, it works and acts just like your favorite laptop. The powerful display is great for streaming your favorite TV shows on Netflix, but the internal hardware is strong enough to let you get some work done, too. For users who prefer a stylus over the touchscreen, the Tab S4 also comes with the S Pen for easy browsing.
The 64GB model costs about $550 on Amazon right now, which makes this the most expensive tablet on this list. That’s not surprising considering the number of advanced features that come along with this Android tablet. However, most companies making Android tablets are trying to offer a low-cost alternative to the iPad, and thus focusing on price over features. So if you’re trying to find a tablet under $200, keep reading. But if you’re looking for a reliable, long-lasting tablet that will let you get work done and stream video efficiently, then this is the tablet for you. Amazon users have given this tablet hundreds of 5-star reviews, and it currently has a 4.5 rating with more than 500 reviews in total.
