Amazon Fire tablet

Reviewed on 11th August 2016 at

Tested at £50

Best price £50 at Amazon

If you're after an affordable tablet that covers the basics then Amazon Fire Tablet should be top of your list. It puts the company's own ecosystem front and centre, but with a vast array of TV and movies on Amazon Video, it's not necessarily a bad thing.

The Yoga Tab 3 combines a gorgeous design and some clever features that make its low price all the more appealing. Performance is good for this level too and the screen is one of the best we've seen at this price. With full access to the Google Play Store on hand too, the Yoga Tab 3 8in is a budget tab worth considering.
