Best Tablets Under $200

  • MORE

If you can't afford the iPad Pro or even the $250 iPad (two of the best tablets), but you don't need to spend a ton to get a good slate. The tablets that cost less than $200 are getting better (and cheaper) all the time. For example, Amazon's Fire 7 has been one of our long time picks, and check out our new Fire 7 (2019) review find out why it's one of the best cheap tablets.

Able to spend some more? Amazon's $129 Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet packs a sharper screen, a protective case, free kid-friendly content and a 2-year no questions asked return policy. And with a bit of trickery, you can even get Google Play on a Fire Tablet (though there are some issues involving security).

We just reviewed the $64 8-inch Onn tablet, which offers pure Android, but has its own limitations. Our head-to-head face-off, where we tested the Onn and Fire 7 side-by-side to decide which super-cheap slate is best, is going to launch very soon.
