Samsung Galaxy Tab 4
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 ( white, 7-inch)

The $180 Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a fine choice for a budget tablet, but it's ultimately bested by great older devices, and new slates that are cheaper still.

Amazon Fire HD 7
REVIEW

Amazon Fire HD 7 ( white, 16GB)

For an inexpensive tablet, the Fire HD 7 satisfies with a practical, family-friendly operating system, but those interested in a 7-inch tablet can find models with better build quality in the same price range.

REVIEW

Apple iPad Mini 3

One of last year's best, the iPad Mini 3 is still a compelling choice despite the lack of upgrades. However, the nearly identical and significantly cheaper iPad Mini 2 is a smarter buy.

REVIEW

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad 8

If you’re craving full Windows 8 on a tablet the size of an iPad Mini, and want a great display, the ThinkPad 8 is one of the best we’ve seen...but not by much.
