Five Best Android Tablet and iPad Models for Different Budgets in India


Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s 14.6-inch AMOLED display offers perhaps the best display on an Android tablet. The huge canvas cannot be used for media consumption but for creative illustrations, note taking, etc. The Tab S8 Ultra supports the S Pen, which comes with the device and attaches magnetically to the back of the tablet.

There’s a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC and a beefy 11,200mAh battery. The Samsung tablet also has a dual camera setup on the back. The Tab S8 Ultra supports 45W fast charging but there’s no charger in the box.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has a starting price of Rs 1,08,900. If the screen/form factor is too big for you, there are smaller versions in the form of the Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus, which come with an 11-inch screen and a 12-inch screen, 4 inches.

Xiaomi tablet 5

The Xiaomi Pad 5 is available in some markets as Mi Pad 5. The Android tablet is priced at Rs 26,999 for the base 6GB RAM option. For the price, users get a 10.95-inch IPS LCD display with WQHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate support, and 500 nits peak brightness.

The Android tablet has a Snapdragon 860 SoC, an 8720 mAh battery and a 13MP camera on the back. The Xiaomi Pad 5 also has a quad-speaker setup with Dolby Atmos support. The tablet also supports the Xiaomi stylus and a smart keyboard, which must be purchased separately.

iPad Air M1

If you want the M1 experience on an iPad but don’t want to spend at least Rs 71,900 on the iPad Pro, consider looking at the iPad Air M1. It has a starting price of Rs 54,900 and comes with a 10.9-inch IPS LCD screen. There’s no ProMotion display tech here and the iPad Air has a dual-speaker setup.

The Air M1 comes with a USB Type-C port, a 12 MP rear camera and support for the Apple Pencil. Those who want the iPadOS experience on a budget can check out the base 9th generation iPad, priced at Rs 30,900 and comes with an A13 Bionic chip.

Pad Realme

Realme launched its first tablet, the Realme Pad, in India with a 10.4-inch IPS LCD display. The budget tablet has a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC capable enough to perform everyday tasks. You also get a 7100mAh battery and a USB Type-C port for charging the tablet. It has an 8MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera.

The Realme Pad comes with up to 4GB of RAM. The base 3GB RAM with WiFi connectivity is priced at Rs 13,999. There is also a Realme Pad Mini, which has a starting price of Rs 10,999. The tablet is a watered down version of the Realme Pad and comes with a smaller 6400 mAh battery, an 8.7-inch screen, a Unisoc T616 SoC and up to 4 GB of RAM.
