8 Best android tablets for readers in 2022

1. Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Showing a Samsung Android tablet.

In terms of price, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) falls well below Apple’s cheapest tablet.

For Android lovers, it makes a good deal as long as they are ready to comprise over a few obvious features. From the security side, there is no fingerprint, no face lock, as well packed with only one speaker at its bottom. 

Reading, writing, and watching binge on Netflix really pays off the bill.

And to run some demanding games you will have the graphic to a minimum to have a smooth gaming experience. 

The battery’s life is standard and can keep you entertained for 8-10 hours on one charge.

If you’re looking for a cheap tablet but don’t want to purchase a device with less than 4 GB of RAM then keep reading and you will find more of the best Lenovo tablets.

Lightweight and sleek, its design is well suited for its price, and upgradable to Android 10 would allow you to run the newest apps. 

For toddlers (under 3), I would not recommend this display size if you’re considering getting one for them.

However, there is no question that the lithium-ion battery can run for hours on a single charge, making it an excellent device for reading.

3. Lenovo Tab M10 HD 10.1″ Tablet, Android 9.0, 32GB Storage

The following table is from the Lenovo tab series which they marketed as family tablets.

Offer features to allow parents to take more control over their kids’ activities, thanks to its built-in child mode which restricts functions to child mode only. Since it’s very cheap, it’s not feasible to compare it to others. Nonetheless, this is a budget-friendly tablet for reading purposes.

4. Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite Tablet with 10.1″ FHD Display, Octa Core, Quick Charge

Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite Tablet with 10.1" FHD Display, Octa Core, Quick Charge


  • Processor: 2.36 GHz
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Storage 32 GB
  • Battery life: 8-10 hours
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1200
  • Camera: Rear 8mp, Front 5mp.
  • Display size: 10.1-inch
  • OS: ‎Android
  • Price: $240

Its 10.1-inch display is framed by chunky edges, on the top one, there is an 8MP fit at the right place. Providing a good video calling experience, and at the frame bottom edge, you will see a fingerprint sensor.

Sound and Display quality is a big plus, speakers deliver a room-filling sound experience. And watching movies at the resolution the tablet offers (1,920-by-1,200) will give you a really enjoyable watching experience.

However, compared to its rival entry-level iPad which is a little expensive the display quality does not match. But talking about battery, it beats its rival by running up to 9 hours on one charge.

5. Samsung Galaxy Tab A7

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7


  • Processor: ‎1.8 GHz
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Storage: 32GB- 64GB
  • Battery-life: 10 Hours
  • Resolution:1920×1200 pixels
  • Camera: Rear 8MP, Front 5MP
  • Display size: 10.1 inches LCD
  • OS: Android 9 Pie
  • Price- $239 64GB, $199 32GB

The Samsung tab a7 is a great example of how a cheap entertaining tablet should be made. It’s a serious rival of the entry-level iPad even beating it in many ways such as it has a more powerful CPU, plus long-lasting battery life. Many apps will run just fine as long as you don’t force them to go out of shatter. Its performance is just fine. 

6. G PAD 5 10.1IN 32GB 4G LTE BLK Unlock, LM-T600QSCCAS

G PAD 5 10.1IN 32GB 4G LTE BLK Unlock, LM-T600QSCCAS


  • Processor: 1.8 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Storage: 32 GB
  • Battery life: 12 hours.
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1200
  • Camera: 8 Pixels
  • Display size: 10.1 LED
  • OS: Android 9.1 pie
  • Current price: $199.9

The tablet’s design looks good and has rounded corners- not very attractive, at all. With a screen resolution of 1920 by 12,00, the overall display performs quite well.

While it cost a few bucks more than other products on our list, it’s not bad in any way, but we expected its performance to be higher than its competitors to justify the additional cost. Here, the only difference is that it has a good battery life and supports pens, which makes it ideal for people who read a lot.

7. Amazon Fire HD 10 – Best Tablet Under 200$

Amazon Fire HD 10 – Best Tablet Under 200$


  • Processor: Octa-core 2.0 GHz
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 32GB- 64GB
  • Battery life: 12 hours
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1200
  • Camera: 2 MP front-facing and 5MP rear-facing cameras
  • Display size: 10.1”
  • OS: Fire OS, much similar to android 9.
  • Price: $180

Compared to the 8in Fire HD 8, the new 10in Fire HD 10 is slimmer and more rounded, as well as 36g lighter in weight than its previous models- slightly increased comfort in holding it for hours.

Its screen is well made for the money, thick with colors that match Netflix shows in very fine detail. Speakers are mounted on the top-edge layer of the device, which produces a decent audio listening experience.  Additionally, Alexa will assist you on the way. 

Best for:

A biased opinion- I really recommend Fire tablets to people looking for an affordable yet modernist feature who are not really a fan of android.

They’re well-made for purposes like streaming videos, reading, playing games, and various other regular tasks.

Their products do not appeal to professional content creators or enthused gamers. 

8. Lenovo Yoga Tab 3- Best Battery Life

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3- Best Battery Life


  • Processor: 1.3 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Storage: 16 GB
  • Battery-life:15 hours
  • Resolution: 1280×800 Pixels
  • Camera: 8 MP 180° rotatable camera
  • Display size: 8 inches LCD
  • OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • Price- $169-212

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is a tablet with an old Android operating system Lollipop. It has 1GB of RAM and only 16 GB of internal storage space for all your media needs- seems quite low though that’s why it often slows down when opening multiple apps, even browsing on multiple pages bogs it down.
