Dell Venue 7
The Dell Venue 7 is one of the best small tablet bargains. The larger Venue 8 is just as capable, however there are other 8-inch slates that offer more features for the same price.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S ( 8.4-inch, white)
With its slim design, fantastic screen, and oodles of power, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a superb smaller tablet, and a worthy competitor to the ever-popular iPad Mini.
LG G Pad 10.1 ( black)
Run-of-the-mill specs paired with sleek, minimalist designs make the LG G Pads attractive budget buys, but there's little to distinguish them from similarly performing slates in the same price range.
Acer Iconia One 7
If you're on tightest of budgets, the Acer Iconia One 7 will meet your needs for very casual use, but don't expect more than that.
Asus Transformer Pad TF103C with keyboard bundle
With Asus' slickest user interface yet, included keyboard, and a competitive starting price, the small but chunky Transformer Pad TF103 is an attractively affordable tablet hybrid.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S ( 10.5-inch, bronze)
An exceptional screen and a long list of software goodies make the Galaxy Tab S Samsung's best tablet to date and our top Android choice for an entertainment slate.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 ( 8-inch, black)
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 delivers everything casual tablet users will need, but it's all tied down to an inflated price tag that makes comparable options more attractive to budget-conscious shoppers.
Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
While the battery is a concern, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is still a good-looking slate that's loaded with more than enough power for anything you're likely to throw at it. It's a good choice if you're looking for a more affordable iPad alternative with 4G LTE -- particularly if you've ever lost a gadget through water damage.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro ( 8.4-inch)
The premium specs and high-end feel of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 make it well worth the high price.
