Specs of Android Tablets Under $200

1. Display

Display screen size is one of the common things to look at when buying a low-priced tablet. Lots of companies provide a high-quality resolution and wider screen size that doesn’t harm our eyes while still provide fair and bright pictures. It is only up to your needs and budget.

2. RAM

We all know that the higher the RAM the smoother the performance. So do not expect high RAM with these android tablets because they only cost under $200. We can say that the higher the RAM the more expensive it will be. With these tablets, RAM only ranges from 2GB-4GB.

One of the factors you should consider when buying a tablet is internal storage. With higher storage, you can experience a high-end performance of the device. The more space you have, the more applications can be installed. It is best to choose a tablet that has a MicroSD card slot so you can extend the storage up to your needs.

Investing in a cheap tablet with high performance can be a miracle. But worry no more because these tablets have a high battery capacity, so even if it may not give you a high and fast performance, the good thing is that you can use the device for a long period of time.
