Apple, Android and Windows
Tablets are generally divided into three categories, which look at the operating system: Apple, Android and Windows.
The price of a tablet is generally determined by the capabilities and functions that each tablet offers, as well as the operating system or brand.
As is known, Apple iOS products are often more expensive than tablets or other devices such as Android or Windows. The tablets that we discuss in this article all run on an Android operating system.
Android is the name for Google's operating system and is designed for use with smartphones and tablets. Today this system is also used for televisions, smartwatches and cars.
Android is found useful by many people because it has an 'open source platform'. This means that the code on which this software is based may be used (and modified) by anyone.
And this is a big difference from iOS Apple, which only works with Apple devices. Android is used by many different brands including Samsung, Huawei, and Sony.
Which tablet is right for you?
Before you purchase a tablet, it is wise to consider exactly what you will use the tablet for and in what kind of situations you will need it.
If your answer is: mainly to use the internet and social media, then a tablet might be unnecessary. Your smartphone can then do.
In case your answer is based on extensively viewing your favorite films and series or playing games, then a tablet is certainly useful and you can see which tablet has a screen that meets your needs (size, quality).
If you find the connection to the internet very important and WiFi is not enough, choose a tablet that works on 3G or 4G.
In addition to the functions you are looking for in a tablet, it is also important to record your budget, so that you do not come home with a tablet that is much more expensive than you planned.
Keep in mind that price doesn't always say everything, sometimes you pay purely for the design, the brand or the materials.
A higher price does not necessarily mean that these types of tablets also have the most functions or the functions that are important to you.
You can quickly purchase a 'standard' tablet at a favorable price. Of course we are not talking about tablets with a high-quality design, but more about tablets with various basic functions and which you can enjoy enough.
Below we give you an overview of the best cheap tablets.
Best cheap tablets reviewed
If we look at tablets suitable for adults (and which are therefore not so user-friendly for children), then we have selected three options for you.
Best Cheap Tablet for Adults: Overmax Livevore 7032
The first tablet for adults with a nice price is the Overmax Livecore 7032.
This tablet has an Android operating system 7.1 with a 7 inch screen. The beautiful black tablet has a simple design with a camera on both the front and the back.
The front camera has a resolution of 0,3 MP and the rear camera 2 MP. Both cameras do not have a flash.
So it seems that this tablet doesn't have the best cameras. So if you want to get started with video or beautiful photos, this may not be the best choice.
If this is not important to you, this is of course not an issue. Not everyone has the ambition to be a professional photographer!
The internal storage capacity is 8GB, the internal memory is 1GB, which offers many possibilities.
The tablet also has WiFi and Bluetooth and can be used for work purposes or simply as a leisure gadget. The battery lasts for hours, which is great for any tablet.
Best cheap tablet with Android 8.1: Denver TAQ-80332
Another adult tablet with a very attractive price is the Denver TAQ-70332.
This tablet has an 8.1 Android operating system and, just like our previous one, a 7 inch screen with 8 GB of memory. The tablet is very easy to use and can therefore also be used by older adults.
When you turn the tablet, the screen automatically rotates. This is useful if you want to read texts or watch videos at your leisure. In addition, the tablet has a 2 megapixel camera.
Downsides of this tablet include that it has no GPS function, no 3G support (but WiFi) and that you cannot make calls with it.
So this is a great tablet for basic needs and if you only plan to use it indoors.
Best budget tablet for the family: Alcatel 1T7
A final tablet for a more budget price that we recommend for adults is the Alcatel 1T7.
Again with a 7 inch screen, an 8.1 Android operating system and 8 GB of memory. In addition, it has a Quad Core Processor.
Handy about this tablet is that the memory is expandable (with Micro-SD of 128 GB) and that it has a kids mode.
The latter means that the tablet is equipped with apps, games and other settings especially for children. As a parent you can determine and set what the children have access to to guarantee safety.
A downside of this tablet is the front camera, which doesn't seem to be that sharp. The tablet has a black color and is simplistic in design. The tablet is also lightweight and therefore easy to take anywhere.
The Alcatel 1T7 has an Eye Care mode that reduces blue light and reduces eye fatigue. Especially if you mainly use the tablet in the evening, this is a nice setting.
In general, customers who have purchased this tablet say that the price-quality ratio is good and that the tablet works well. The tablet is also said to be easy for children to use.
A handy tablet when you are looking for one that is good for the whole family.
Best Cheap Tablet for Kids: Veidoo 7 Inch Tab
If you are really looking for a tablet that is purely suitable for children, we think the Veidoo Power Tab is the best and also the cheapest option.
This tablet has the 7.1 Android operating system, a 7 inch screen and 8 GB of memory.
With this tablet you can be sure that your child can play and learn quietly. There are 30 different games installed that are suitable for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years.
If you want to add more games or apps, you can do so with the help of the extensive Google Play Store.
The tablet is also equipped with a camera and web browser that is child-friendly. In addition, as a parent you can have a grip on what your child is doing on the tablet and therefore switch off certain functions.
The tablet does have a number of drawbacks, including a bad battery and the fragile material. In addition, it also seems wise to be careful with the buttons, they seem to break quickly.
The size of the tablet is also popular with other buyers and you can purchase the tablet in pink or blue.
In the case of children's tablets, be aware of any damage the device may sustain. It seems like a good idea to always have a good one protective cover for the tablet so you can reduce the damage.
Use the tablet as a laptop
Do you find a tablet handy but do you also like it if you can connect it to a keyboard? Then that is possible. Typing long pieces of text on a tablet is of course the fastest and easiest with the help of a (wireless) keyboard for the tablet!
Which cheap tablets just missed the list?
Nabi Jr. Tablet
Nabi identifies their tablet as one of the tablets made really just for kids. It is designed as a tablet, not a toy. Priced at $ 48,99 on Amazon at this price makes it a great tool for your child's learning, discovery, and growth.

Time Control and Character Animation
Time Control interface in Nabi Jr. tablet gives you detailed information about how to use the tablet, along with insights. These insights also include information about an individual activity or app usage. In addition to the character animation, every time you want to turn off the tablet, instead of just turning off the screen, Nabi Jr. tablet tell your child what time it is and when it is time for certain activities such as exercise, study, play, sleep, etc.
According to the developers of nabi, this feature makes it easier for parents to avoid tantrums in their children when it is time to put the tablet down and helps build structure in your child's schedule.
With 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory expandable up to 32 GB through the SD card slot, this tablet has a Cortex A7 1,2 GHz quad-core processor. And with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, it has the fundamental requirements of a tablet. The 3 hours long battery life is a bit mediocre. Together with a 2 MP rotating camera and 600 × 480 pixel screen, these features are very good for the price.
Alldaymall's tablet for children
The Alldaymall 7 ″ tablet is second on our list of cheap tablets for children priced around 50 euros. In fact, looking for a cheap tablet is often a gamble, the most common problem being that tablets freeze due to the mediocre specs. But that's not the case with the Alldaymall.
This tablet runs smoothly and quickly as if it were a PC computer. According to in-depth reviews from other customers, the no-freeze when playing data-intensive games is a big plus. This, along with a bright screen, makes it one of the best tablets in the range at $ 49,99 on Amazon.
The Alldaymall tablet runs on an Allwinner A33 quad-core processor with 1,2 GHz clock speed. The Allwinner processors are now becoming so popular for lower priced tablets due to their speed and efficiency. Many cheaper tablets come with clock speeds of 1,2 GHz, but this one is considerably faster. According to extensive customer reviews, it loads apps and games quickly and has no slowness issues.
The Alldaymall tablet comes with a resolution of 1024 x 600, which is considered quite good for a 7” tablet. While we are still looking for a perfect resolution for children's tablets in this series it is quite an achievement. And considering that this tablet will be used by children, it will certainly suffice.
One factor that contributed to its second position in our list of cheap kids' tablets is its bright screen. It may also be necessary to dim it which makes the device possible and if you use it indoors that way, the battery life will also be significantly increased.
Storage, Camera, Battery & Weight
The Alldaymall comes with an internal memory of 8 GB. 8 GB is enough memory for a child's use, but it can be expanded up to 32 GB with the help of micro SD card slot. It comes with 2 cameras, a 0.3MP front camera and a 2MP rear camera.
Then the battery, it lasts 3 hours in continuous use, but you can increase battery life by dimming the screen. The tablet weighs 0,6 pounds, the lightest you will find in a 7 ″ tablet.
The Alldaymall The tablet runs on Android 4.4, which is one of the later versions of Android at the time of writing this article. It comes with the Google Play Store, so you can choose from thousands of useful apps and popular games. And as an added bonus, you'll find Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds, Netflix and many other useful apps pre-loaded in memory!
iWAwa Apps for Kids
iWawa interface for children is a huge digital playground, with millions of children playing and learning here in a safe environment. Much material from educational experts can be found here in the largest collection of educational apps, videos and books. When Kids Mode is active, your child cannot leave the safe digital playground without your approval.
Tablets for children have changed a lot in the last few years. From a simple toy to a full-fledged tablet, which also makes it very difficult if you want to buy a new tablet. After all, there are so many options available in the market. In our list of 5 best tablets for around 50 euros, the Zeepad TABZ7 is the number 3.
A price tag of $ 53,15 on Amazon when we reviewed it, makes this tablet an affordable alternative with its 7 ”screen and Android 4.4 and certainly makes it one to look forward to.
With 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory expandable up to 32GB via SD card slot, this tablet additionally uses a 1,5GHz quad-core processor. In addition, both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are present in the tablet and it will be suitable for most applications that a child would like to do.
This too has a 3 hour battery life and Gorilla glass in combination with a 0.3 MP front camera and a 2 MP rear camera, 1024 × 600 pixels screen completes the affordable picture.
Zeepad's TABZ7 is a good looking tablet that comes with a rubber bumper. The tablet is available in 3 colors: yellow, red and pink. The color of the bumper here is basically the tab color you choose. The rubber covers provide good protection against drops and bumps.
Cameras, Memory, and Ports
Zeepad TABZ7 has 2 cameras, a 0,3 MP camera on the front and a 2 MP camera on the back. It also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a micro HDMI output.
It also features a headphone jack, mono speaker and a microSD card slot for adding up to 32 GB of external storage along with the internal 4 GB. The available micro USB port is used for charging and syncing, but it does not support OTG.
Resolution and Processor
The tablet's hardware is well-built, but it lacks having good screen resolution. 1024 × 600 resolution of this tablet is the same as the new Amazon Fire. Because this tablet is equipped with an LCD screen, the colors do not always come out well.
The tablet must be held straight in front to view the correct colors. Beyond the performance, Zeepad's tablet features a 1,5 GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor, which is fast enough considering that this tablet will be used by a child. This tablet comes with a 512 MB of RAM which is sufficient for a kids' (or her, but I have sons myself) use.
The software is just as important as the hardware on a kids tablet. I would say it is even more important than hardware because this is about security and learning capabilities for your little one. It comes with some pre-loaded educational apps, so once you set up an account you can start using it for hours of fun before the need to install new apps.
Furthermore, the Zeepad gives parents full access to the Android Kitkat operating system, unlike many such tablets available for children. Also Google Apps are available in the tablet and include Play Store, Gmail, YouTube for kids, Google Maps, and photos.
Considering the speed of the processor, which is noticeably more than the other tablets in this range, Zeepad's tablet is actually a good buy in this range with such features. And because it has become a must for every child to have a tablet, you should go for one with options.
It has less child-friendly apps and options, but the specs allow it to grow better with slightly older children, especially if you don't want to give your child your own device because he (or she) could do something unwanted on your phone or tablet , this is the right choice. With Play Store built in so you can just install an app of your choice it's worth the money.
If you have a child, his or her happiness and development are of course very important to you. So when you can see your child happy and at the same time stimulate their learning ability and development, you naturally seize that opportunity. While at the same time it can help to familiarize a child with the use and understanding of technology, it becomes even more valuable and almost priceless.
Plus, with a dedicated kids tablet, the number of accidents that happen to your own stuff when kids borrow them will significantly reduce when they are busy on their own tablet. So if you're looking for a kids tablet that shouldn't cost too much and comes with full parent support, the FunnPab tablet is the right choice for you.
Priced at $ 41,95 on Amazon makes it the cheapest of the bunch. The Funnpab tablet also comes with a free silicone case. With 8 GB of internal memory, cameras and 512 MB of RAM, Funnpab tablet is a good buy at this price, placing us at number 4.
The Silicone Case & color
The Funnpab tablet is not just any ordinary tablet that has been put in a silicone case to make it kid-friendly. The tablet has edges with built-in rubber protection and sturdy plastic housing and available in 5 colors (red, black, pink, blue and green) to make it as child-friendly as possible.
Cameras, Memory, and Ports
The Funntab comes with 2 cameras, one in the front [0.3 MP] and one in the back [2 MP]. It also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a microUSB port, a microSD card slot, along with a 3,5 mm jack for children's headphones. You can add up to 32 GB of external storage via microSD card slot.
The micro USB port available is used for charging and syncing, it also supports USB-on-the-go (OTG), so you can access files stored on a USB stick through this tablet or even connect a mouse to your tablet.
Resolution and Processor
The hardware of the tablet is well built, but here too it lacks a good screen resolution. The FunnPab's tablet has a screen resolution of 1024 × 600 (171 ppi), which is the same as Amazon Fire's.
Because this tablet is equipped with an HD screen, the colors are good and the device does not always have to be held straight in order to display the colors correctly. The performance of the FunnPab tablet features a 1,3 GHz Cortex A7 quad core processor, which is fast enough considering that this tablet will be used by a child.
The Funnpab tablet comes with a 512MB RAM memory, which is sufficient for a kids tablet, but the tablet can hang while running multiple heavier apps at the same time.
Runs on Android 4.4.2 with Google Play interface which some of the kids' tablets have not made available. With Google Store, he has access to millions of apps available for download from Play Store so you can install new apps and games endlessly.
The AOSON tablet is like 5de ranked around 50 euros in our list of cheap children's tablets. When you might think when buying a new tablet, maybe a tablet with a lower price heats up too quickly and lingers too quickly, that's where the AOSON tablet stands out. General purpose, it will not freeze and will run smoothly.
The AOSON tablet runs on an Allwinner A33 quad-core processor and 1,2 GHz clock speed. The Allwinner processors are now gaining in popularity for lower-priced tablets for its speed and efficiency and we've seen it before with one of the previous ones in our review.
Much lower-priced tablets come with clock speeds of around 1 GHz, but this one is significantly faster with a 512 MB RAM.
The AOSON tablet comes with a resolution of 1024 x 600, which is considered quite good for a 7 ”tablet. Not perfect, but it will be more than enough for children.
Memory and weight
The AOSON tablet comes with an internal memory of 8 GB. 8 GB is more than enough for kids and it comes with 2 cameras, 0.3 MP front camera and 2 MP rear camera. The battery lasts about 3 hours with continuous use.
The AOSON tablet runs on Android 4,4, which is one of the later versions of Android at the time of writing. It comes with the Google Play Store, so you can choose from thousands of useful apps and popular games.
