The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is our most recommended choice for a tablet under 30,000. It combines unique features along with the luxury brand tag.
Design & Build Quality – The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has a premium look and feel. It does look similar to Tab 6 but is comparatively smaller. Some may not like the design because of the thick bezels, but the build is quite sturdy and durable.
It does not weigh much, but you’ll start feeling the weight if you use it for a long time. The Tab S6 Lite has a headphone jack and a USB C port for charging. We’ll talk about the charging later on.
The Tab also comes with the signature S Pen that can be used for navigation but is primarily used for designing or taking notes. You can place the S Pen on either side of the Tablet if you are done using it as well.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 6 Lite also comes with three color options to choose from. The only thing the Tab 6 Lite misses out on is a fingerprint sensor.
Performance – The Tab 6 Lite is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9611 SoC, which is a good mid-range chipset but does not promise any flagship-grade performance. The chipset is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. If you store a lot of gadgets, you can always upgrade upto 1TB with a MicroSD card.
The Android Tablet runs on Samsung’s One UI on top of Android 10. The UI is one of the best in the market, and navigation is smooth and simple; also, you will get an Android 11 update.
The performance is quite good. There is no lag or slowing down even if you multitask using this Tablet. The S Pen, too, does a good job, and writing is very smooth with the Pen. You can play games and use multiple applications without facing any trouble.
Display – The Tab 6 Lite features a 10.4-inch TFT LED screen with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels. Some may wonder why there is no AMOLED panel, but the display is quite good, and the colors are visible and punchy.
Battery Backup – Featuring a 7040mAh battery, the Samsung Tab S6 Lite is no short of power. It comes bundled with a 7.75W charger in the box. The charging is not the fastest, and it takes almost 4 hours to charge the Tablet completely. However, the battery backup is nearly 10 hours, which is an outstanding amount.
Camera – Camera-wise, the Samsung device has a single 8 MP rear camera and a front-facing 5 MP camera. The pictures were taken with the Tablet come out with good colors and overall quality, and you can even use it to video call friends or attend online classes.

2. Apple iPad 7th Gen
Apple products are generally considered costly. But you can get the 7th Gen Apple iPad just under Rs.30,000, which still provides a major competition to some of the latest choices we have at present.
Design & Build Quality – The Apple iPad features an aluminum casing, so it has a very strong build. The 7th Gen iPad comes with a fingerprint sensor to get additional security and feel when using the Tablet. The iPad is also lightweight and easily portable.
Apart from the aluminum build, the Tablet feels premium and is not that heavy as one would imagine. There is also a magnetic connector if you want to connect accessories like a keyboard to the Tablet.
Although the build is solid, replacing any parts of the Apple iPad will be very expensive. That is one of the primary reasons why some do not prefer buying an Apple device.
Performance – The 7th Gen Apple iPad is powered by the A10 Fusion chipset with the M10 core processor. In terms of performance, this is the best Tablet you can get for the price. The A10 chipset can handle high-end tasks, and you will see no lag even if you multitask.
The iPad supports the Apple Pencil, and the performance is smooth. You can use the Pencil to sketch or take down notes but note that there is only support for first-generation Apple Pencil. So you miss out on some of the latest features.
Display – The iPad features a 10.2-inch retina display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1620 pixels, and it is one of the best displays you’ll get at this price. The large display makes room for vivid colors and image quality, so Apple has done an excellent job with the overall display factor.
Battery Backup – Battery backup is quite good, and the iPad lasts nearly 9-10 hours on a single charge. The USB Lightning connector might not be the fastest charging option available, but it does an overall good job.
Camera – The 7th Gen iPad comes with an 8MP rear camera that takes good photos but does not expect iPhone-like quality. The front-facing 1.2MP camera will prove useful when you are attending classes or while taking quick snaps.
- A10 Fusion chipset
- Apple Pencil

4. Lenovo Ideapad Duet

Display – The Ideapad Duet features a 10.1 FHD display and a 4-side narrow bezel, which means that the visuals are also great to look at. The display is bright and large enough for almost all types of works.
Battery Backup – The battery life is yet again a big plus in the Ideapad Duet. It gives you nearly 15 hours of battery on a single charge with its 7000mAh battery. Lenovo has truly done a great job with the Duet’s battery.
