2. Samsung Galaxy Tab A7
If you are looking for a more well-known name, you can opt for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7. It is a well-built device that can cover almost any daily task.
Design & Build Quality – First thing you will notice about the Galaxy Tab A7 is that it is slim and sturdy. Samsung hasn’t compromised on quality with the metallic finish that gives the Tablet a premium look and feels.
It has a MicroSD slot to the side, and the device is quite portable. It does not slip and has an excellent grip and a solid build.
Performance – Unlike most Samsung devices, this one runs on the Snapdragon 662 SoC. Most of the time, Samsung ships products in India with their own Exynos chipsets. So, it is nice to see a Qualcomm chipset in the Galaxy Tab A7.
The chipset is paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The performance of the Galaxy Tab A7 is one of the best at this price point. You can play high-end games like COD Mobile, and it’ll give you a very smooth and calm experience.
Display – The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 features a 10.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels. It is not the same as an AMOLED display but does a good job in color reproduction and vivid colors.
Battery backup – The Tab has a 7040mAh battery, and it lasts around 9 hours on average. Battery life varies depending on the usage, but you don’t get a strong battery, such as the MediaPad M5 Lite.
Camera – Galaxy Tab A7 features an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The camera takes good pictures but is a performer in low-light conditions.
- Snapdragon 662 processor
- microSD slot
- 3GB RAM & 32GB Storage
- 10.4-inch display
- 8MP rear and 5MP front camera
When it comes to tablets, many are looking to buy the Apple iPad, but there are no Apple products under this budget. However, if you want a good premium alternative, this is the Tablet for you under Rs.20,000.
- Low-light camera performance
3. Lenovo Smart Tab M10
The Lenovo Smart Tab M10 is powerful with a modern design making it a very solid choice for the price range.
Design & Build Quality – At first, you’ll notice that the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 Plus has very thin bezels. It is an all-aluminum build, and so the quality is easily understood. The only bezels you’ll notice is towards the top alongside the front camera.
The Tablet is also incredibly light, so you’ll have no issue with portability. It is lighter than some of the premium options out there. The Tablet has a USB C port and a microSD slot as well.
Performance – A MediaTek Helio P22T processor powers the Tablet with 4GB of RAM. However, performance isn’t all that great. It does have trouble when trying to multitask or handle a lot of chrome tabs.
But when you take the case of storage, you’ll never be in trouble. The Tablet has 128 GB of internal storage, which is a lot, and you can store all your photos, videos, and other documents.
Display – The 10.3-inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. It has good viewing angles and sharp colors. And with the thin bezels, everything looks more attractive and clean. You’ll have a great experience watching movies or streaming content.
Battery backup – The 5000mAh battery seems low on paper, but it manages to give a total of 8 hours on a single charge. That is a good amount of screen time but do note that there is no quick charge if you want your device back on duty in a short time.
Camera – The cameras aren’t anything special, and they do their job. The Smart Tab M10 has a primary 8MP camera and a 5MP front camera. The pictures are okay but not comparable to our top two choices.
- MediaTek Helio P22T processor
- 4GB RAM & 128 GB storage
- 10.3-inch display
- 5000mAh battery
- 8MP & 5MP cameras
For a budget user, the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 makes a lot of sense. It has the right features, design, and more. But it is not a heavy performer. If you won’t use the Tablet above average limits, this will be a good investment of your money.
- No quick charge
4. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
This Tablet launched a year back but still takes a spot in our list because of the quality it offers. Those looking for a premium tablet with useful features can look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Design & Build Quality – The Tablet looks and feels premium. It is an aluminum build, so the quality is truly present. It isn’t lightweight compared to the competition, but it does an overall great job when it comes to design and quality.
Performance – Samsung has decided to go with its own Exynos 7904 processor for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. However, performance is not that good. It has 2GB of RAM paired with 32GB of storage. So it cannot handle high-end games or multitasking.
The Mali GPU might seem promising, but it underperforms. The lack of RAM also means you’ll occasionally face lags.
Display – It comes with a 10.1-inch LCD display. The screen is sharp and produces vibrant colors. Bezels are present, but that is one compromise you’ll mostly have to make at this price point.
Battery backup – Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a 6150mAh battery, and on average use, it lasts nearly 13 hours, which is reasonably good. Again, there is no fast charge support, so it will take a while to get the Tablet fully charged.
Camera – Samsung has gone with an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Camera quality is sub-standard, so do not expect photos with great clarity. The case is the same for both front and rear cameras.
- Exynos 7904 processor
- 2GB RAM & 32GB storage
- 10.1-inch LCD display
- 6150mAh battery
- 8MP & 5MP camera
Performance isn’t the biggest factor in the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Samsung has managed to do an excellent job in other areas. If you do not mind having a low power specification, this Tablet can be used for occasional work or students.
- No fast charging
- Display could have been better
5. Lenovo Ideapad D330
If you are willing to spend 1000 extra, you can go for the Lenovo Ideapad D330, a windows tablet that gives you a laptop-like experience.
Design & Build Quality – The Lenovo Ideapad D330 has a plastic built, so it is not on par as the competition when it comes to build quality. It also weighs a bit, so it is not the best portable option in the market.
The main highlight of the Lenovo Ideapad D330 is the keyboard. It is one of the rare tablets that ship with a physical keyboard. The keyboard is also made of plastic, but the quality seems to be good.
The keyboard is detachable, meaning you need only attach it if you want to. Or else, you can remove it and use it as a normal tablet. The keyboard also has 2 additional USB ports, so you get more options for connectivity.
Performance – As it is a Windows tablet, it is powered by the Intel Celeron N400 dual-core processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. Performance is decent for the price, and you can use the Tablet for any office or editing needs.
Display – Ideapad D330 features a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The display is vibrant and has good viewing angles.
Battery backup – The 5080mAh battery lasts nearly 10 hours on a single charge meaning the Tablet has an excellent battery backup, and you will not be disappointed. There is no fast charge support.
Camera – You can use the 2MP camera in the Ideapad D330 for clicking some normal pictures but keep in mind that the camera quality isn’t very good.
- Intel Celeron N4000 processor
- 4GB RAM & 64GB storage
- 10.1-inch display
- 10-hour battery
- 2MP camera
Being a windows tablet, the Ideapad D330 brings some unique features. You get a laptop-like experience but at the cost of some sacrifices.

- Poor camera

Design & Build Quality – This Tablet will be more famous among the younger age groups. It has a great looking design but doesn’t have the best build. The Tablet isn’t that light compared to the competition, but it does an okay job.
Performance – Coming to the performance, the iTab Movies Pro features the Octa-Core ARM Cortex M A55 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. A graphics processor is also present, and it is a good performer. You can play high-end games and multitask.
Display – The 10.1-inch Tablet has wide viewing angles, and you’ll have a good time watching and streaming your favorite content.
Battery backup – Although it features a 7000mAh battery, the average battery life is only around 6 hours. So, the battery life is very poor, even with the bigger battery.
Camera – The Tablet has eye-catchy camera specifications. A 13MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front camera captures some decent pictures, especially with the front camera.
- ARM CortexTM A55 processor
- 4GB RAM & 64GB storage
- 7000mAh battery
- 13MP rear and 8MP front camera
