Amazon Fire HD8
We can't have a cheap Android tablet roundup without mentioning Amazon's Fire tablet. It runs Android, but you'll never tell because it's covered in their "Fire OS" that completely hides the more traditional software.
Everything about this tablet is absolutely perfect for those who want a cheap device, except one. There's no Google Play Store support, which means you can't access all the apps and games you've previously downloaded or paid for.
That aside, it features a bright 8-inch 720p IPS display, plenty of power for tablet tasks, 1.5GB of RAM and 32GB of space. You can even add a microSD card for up to 256GB of space full of apps, games, and movies. The Amazon tablet has a tiny 2MP camera and only 12-hours of battery life, but that's more than enough for most.
It comes in four colors, has Amazon Alexa built-in, and only costs $124. You can buy a model for $109 but it has Amazon ads on the lock-screen. Something called "Amazon special offers." Then, there's a cheaper model with only 16GB of storage for $79. Get that, and throw in a micro-SD card. This is one of the cheapest tablets money can buy that you'll still actually enjoy.
Buy it on Amazon for $124 (no ads)
