Tablet usage is on the rise in the business world. According to a Forrester survey of 7,000 global workers, more than half use tablets 1-2 times a week, and over 70% of those people are using their own tablets at the office.
So employees love working on tablets—enough to buy their own. They’re incredible for individuals with multiple work spaces, people who travel a lot, or employees who’d rather carry a tablet to-and-from the office than a laptop. No matter the reason, just because you want to buy a tablet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank.
Ranging from Amazon to Lenovo, many consumer electronics brands have low-priced offerings. But with so many tablets to choose from, it can be difficult to pick the right one.
Check out this Sprinklr infographic—powered by data from thousands of social conversations—to see how tablet users feel about some of the top budget tablets in the market and which features are most important to them.[/fusion_text]
Each tablet is a winner in one category or another, so it really boils down to personal preference. If screen size is a priority, you should consider the Lenovo Tab 2 A10—customers love the screen resolution and photo editing capabilities.
On the other hand, if performance is on the top of your list, the Acer Icona Tab 10 might be your best bet. According to customers, it’s great for juggling multiple apps, as it runs smoothly and has a bright display. This could be important if you intend to use it heavily for business purposes.
Bottom line: finding the best budget tablet requires deciding what features are most important to you, then evaluating your options based on those criteria.
Our analysis is based on 9,000+ customer mentions of popular, well-known, budget tablets on social media and review sites. The tablets selected were all under $200 in retail value. The final categories are display, pricing, battery, and memory, as these accounted for over 91% of the total mentions, and are most frequently mentioned by customers.
