If you are on the hunt for the best tablet under $200, you may want to consider the Fire HD 8. It is Kindle’s thinnest tablet yet and boasts durability. This device features an eight-inch, IPS, widescreen, HD, LCD display with 1280 x 800 resolution.
The Fire HD 8 has a quad-core processor (up to 1.5 GHz) and 16GB of internal storage. It includes a 5MP rear-facing camera, an HD front-facing camera, and a microSD slot for extra storage, and its battery life is expected to last for as long as eight hours, depending on what it’s being used for. It weighs just 11 ounces and is just over a quarter-inch thick.
Many (if not most) customers who purchased the Kindle Fire HD 8 and reviewed it felt that they had scored a magnificent deal for the low price they paid.
Many loved its wider viewing angles, dual stereo speakers, and microSD slot capabilities. Some said it has a strong Wi-Fi connection.
Most agreed that this is a wonderful basic tablet and that it is fantastic for mainly entertainment purposes, but is not intended for more serious or heavier tasks. A few were disappointed that the screen isn’t more sensitive and reported that the device lags a bit sometimes.
The second best tablet under $200 is Kindle Fire HDX 7″. This tablet is powered by a 2.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 800-processor, making it the first tablet with over 2GHz. It offers up to 3x the power of its previous models. The Kindle Fire HDX combines 2GB of RAM, driving a much faster and a more commanding user experience. It features a 7” HDX touch screen display with 1920 by 1200 resolution at 323ppi, a 100 percent sRGB color-accuracy, a video play-back of up to 1080p, maximum brightness of over 400nits, a dynamic image contrast,
a more reduced glare, and an advanced polarizing filter. It has external volume controls, a front facing 720p HD-camera, a built in dual microphone, built in Bluetooth with the support for A2DP-compatible stereo headsets, headphones and speakers.
The accessibility features include: a screen reader, a screen magnifier, and explore by touch. The screen-reader features IVONA’s award winning natural-language “text to speech” voice. It also features adjustable font color/sizes, and a built in Oxford dictionary. The Kindle Fire 7″ HDX-tablet comes with a USB 2 cable, a 5W power-adapter and a quick start guide.
It features dazzling color accuracy, a more reduced glare with stunning picture quality. It is leaps and bounds faster than the last year’s Kindle HD. This year’s HDX is able to play-seamlessly all HD 1080p. However, some users have reported a blueish glow around edges of the HDX screen.

The third tablet you can get for less than $200 is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7” in white or black. For this price you can get a powerful 7” tablet that has 4 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon. The first thing you are going to notice is the 1.2GHz, quad-core processor and 1.5GB or RAM, which is comparable to the Google Nexus 7. It comes with 8GB of flash memory and can add up to 32GB with micro SD slot, about 20 hours battery and weighs 0.61 pound. The bad thing is that it only has a 1.3MP front side webcam, but the backside is 3MP, which is better than most tablets.
The last best tablet under $200 on our list is the 7” Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung. The white model is selling on Amazon right now for under $200 and the features that it packs are impressive. Those features include a 7” touch screen display, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box with updates coming and a dual-core, 1.2GHz processor. 8GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM will keep things moving more smoothly for you. The camera on the backside is just a 3MP version. The front facing camera is even smaller, but it is there if you want to use it.
All of these tablets have features, hardware and software that make one better than the next, so the best thing you can do is all the research based on what you want to do with your tablet
