The tablet market has exploded over the past few years. The technology world and consumers in general are very excited to be able to do all their web browsing, gaming and general computing on-the-go. There are various sizes of tablets on the market, with the 10-inch and 7-inch being the most popular.
10 inch tablets offer more screen space and generally better resolution than their smaller counterparts. We’ve put together a list for you of the best cheap 10 inch tablets, by comparing both features and reviews of the various tablets available on the market.
Top 3 Best Low-Cost 10″ Tablets
Okay, so we know we listed 4, but top 3 sounds so much better! Truth be told there was some confusion with one of our writers as to how many 10-inches tablets to include.
The more the merrier, right? Right. Read on to get started.
Apple iPad (4th Generation)
No list of 10-inches tablets could be complete without the Apple iPad. For years, Apple has dominated the tablet market with their ever-popular line of iPad products. People love the intuitive operating system, known as iOS. Since the vast majority of tablets run the Android operating system, one of Apple’s main selling points is their own, user-friendly operating system.
The iPad also boasts the impressive Retina Display, which means that the resolution and picture is so good that you literally cannot see individual pixels with the naked eye. This technology makes for amazingly crisp, clear and beautiful imagery, making the iPad great for viewing pictures, watching movies, etc.
The most recent generation (4th) offers mostly the same features, but with increased computing power, which makes for quicker load times of apps, videos, and just about everything else.

Asus TF700T Transformer
The Asus TF700T is the latest model from Asus. Following their successful Transformer and Transformer Prime models, Asus focused more on computing power and resolution with this most recent release. The TF700T offers resolution that rivals Apple’s Retina Display, and also has enough computing power to start apps very quickly.
This tab is also compatible with Transformer mobile docks, meaning you can purchase a mobile dock for your tab that increases battery life AND provides a full working keyboard – essentially converting your tablet into a lightweight laptop!

Microsoft Surface Pro
For those seeking a tablet with computing power rivaling that of a desktop, the Microsoft Surface Pro is a great choice. Powered by Windows 8, the Microsoft Surface is as close to a laptop as tablets get. The 1080p resolution makes this tablet excellent for watching movies and viewing pictures, while the 4gb of RAM allows it to load quickly and efficiently.
There is also a Type Cover that allows you to enjoy a full-size keyboard attachment, to make typing more efficient. Unfortunately, the Microsoft Surface Pro is priced similarly to a laptop, but it’s still a good choice for those seeking a top-of-the-line model.

Sony Xperia Tab-Z
The Sony Xperia Tab Z, often referred to as simply the Xperia Z, is Sony’s latest attempt at breaking into the tablet market. Although priced a bit higher than competing models, the Xperia Z certainly brings some impressive features to the table. For one, this tab is thinner and lighter than many competing models.
It also seems to handle games a bit more efficiently, with reduced load times and less “lag”. It also offers expandable storage – something that is almost unheard of in the tablet industry. If this device was priced a little cheaper, it would surely be higher up on this list!
The Xperia Z is very underrated. I would go as far as saying it is one of the best 10 inch android tablets on the market.
