After the stunning success of the iPad, everythingmore or less well-known manufacturers hit the tablets and watched the active growth of sales, until a few years later the demand began to fall. Users did not change the old models, which still coped well with their task. A noticeable part of the audience was also grabbed by smartphones with a large screen, and nevertheless, tablets continue to buy. The most popular is the budget segment, and we are often asked to recommend a model for cheap. This rating will help determine the choice.

Waiting for miracles is not necessary - Android tabletsEntry level have similar, very modest characteristics, which is enough to work with mail, social networks, videos and simple games. There are users who do not need more. Another common scenario is the purchase of an inexpensive tablet for a child, “so that it worked and was not very sorry when it smashed.” In 2019, the tablet should have at least 2 gigabytes of RAM and 16 gigabytes of internal memory. This will not suffer because of the constant brakes and lack of space, but do not count on the lightning-fast operation of the device. Having studied the range in our stores, we picked up the best options in the price range from 3000 to 5000 hryvnia. All that is below this bar is frankly slow models or dubious China, whose reliability is a big question.

Opens our rating Lenovo Tab 4 8 with support for mobile networks and a price tag in 5000 hryvnia. It can even be used as a telephone.(how convenient is another question). The device meets an 8-inch screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio, a resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels and a density of about 189 ppi. RAM 2 GB, and the heart was a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor with a frequency of 1.4 GHz and Adreno 308 video accelerator. It is enough for everyday tasks and simple games, but the chip will not cope with heavy 3D graphics. And competitors have a much better performance situation. The internal memory is 16 GB, there is a slot for a microSD card, instead of which you can insert a second SIM card.

Tablet pleased with high-quality frontstereo speakers, in addition, Lenovo added a Dolby application to adjust the sound. The body is plastic, the back matte panel does not slip, but easily collects prints. This is very noticeable in the black version, for use without a case the white version is better suited. The cameras are two: the rear is 5 megapixels and the front one is 2 megapixels. The battery with a capacity of 4850 mAh provides an average of 10 hours of screen activity; in the streaming mode, the device will be discharged in about 7 hours. The percentages need to be monitored, because Lenovo Tab 4 has been charging for ages (from zero to 100% in 6 hours). And when connected to a more powerful power supply, charging will not accelerate. Perhaps with such a restriction, the manufacturer wanted to extend the battery life cycle, but this is not certain. The operating system is Android 7 Nougat, no upgrade to Oreo is planned.
