  • The Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 is one of the most affordable tablets available, and offers solid features and performance for the price.


  • The ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 combines a gorgeous screen, epic battery life, strong performance and a slew of premium features for under $150.


  • The Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 is a top budget tablet. If you don't like the restrictiveness of something like the Kindle Fire HD, and don't want to splash out on a £200 New Nexus 7, this is a top choice.


  • The well-built 8-inch LG G Pad is a good smaller Android tablet, but it doesn't do anything to stand out from the crowded pack. Especially given its high $350 price.


  • LG's G Pad 8.3 is a high-powered 8-inch tablet with a boatload of features, but competing devices offer brighter displays and longer battery life.


  • Its software may not be perfect, but a good price, sound specs and attractive hardware make the LG G Pad 8.3 one of the best-value tablets of the moment.


  • With its great battery life, 1080p IPS screen, and flexible mobile and desktop docking systems, the Dell Venue 11 Pro slate tablet means business.


  • - Despite the dimness, the IPS panel delivered vibrant colors.
    - The touchpad was better in terms of feedback.


  • The Dell Venue Pro 11 is an excellent, cheaper alternative to the Surface Pro 2. If you want a Windows 8 hybrid for serious work then the Pro 11 has you covered.


  • While it won't win any speed awards, the Dell Venue 8's full HD display and low price make it a good value for multimedia tablets.


  • The new Dell Venue 8 delivers a sharper display, improved performance and longer battery life than its predecessor, for just $20 more. The refresh also makes this device the only $200 Android tablet to offer a full HD screen. If you're looking for a more powerful Android slate in this size, we recommend ASUS' MeMO Pad 8, which costs the same as the new Venue 8 and offers speedier performance, more endurance, and better software and apps. But if higher screen resolution is more important to you, Dell's Venue 8 is a great choice.

    - Although we weren’t told the exact weight (Intel and Dell remain tight lipped about the exact specifications) it feels like it could also be one of the lightest 8-inch tablets around.
    - Intel’s recent Atom processors are as happy running Android as they are Windows and we experienced no slowdown opening apps or scrolling through menus.


  • The E-Fun Nextbook 8 is a $150 Windows tablet with some great extras from Microsoft, but slow performance and a limited feature set make it best suited for users looking for a nearly disposable slate.
