'The top of the range 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX boasts a stunningly thin and light design and has an excellent screen, but the lack of access to Google's Play Store means there's a heavy reliance on Amazon's limited apps. '
'The Dell Venue 8 (2014) comes in under the $200 mark and will serve up all your favorite videos in full HD. It can't match the Tab S on speed or features, but it's a solid value for on-the-go media consumption.'
'The Venue 8's 1920 x 1200 IPS multi-touch display delivered bright and crisp visuals.'
'Dual cameras combined with an IR sensor are able to take pictures with depth, and this is useful for all sorts of reasons.'
Dell’s Venue 7 is an attractive tablet with good battery life, a loud speaker, and a clean, up-to-date version of Android. But performance issues and its 1GB of RAM make it hard to recommend—especially for those who want to play games.
'The G Pad 7.0 offers great value if you can deal with relatively modest performance and a simply average display. '
'As such, it makes a pretty great occasional-use tablet - one that's going to lie on the coffee table or sofa a fair bit. '
'There three users you can add - a regular user with full rights, a restricted user for which you can select what types of apps and functions are accessible and Kids Mode user - designed to give your children access to the tablet without allowing them to pay for services and apps and mess with the system settings. '
The LG G Pad tablets won’t win any awards for best tablet, but they are decent, mid-range devices that will perform most basic tasks well.
