Drawbacks of Budget Tablets
Tablets quite easily fill the niche between smartphones and PCs with their bigger screens and more powerful processors. However there is a stark difference between the quality and user experience provided by a mere budget tablet as compared to a full blown iPad or a Nexus 10.
Mostly budget tablets skimp on almost all features expect the most basic ones to deliver a tablet at low market price. You’ll find such budget devices missing key components like HDMI connectivity, GPS and Bluetooth, capacitive touchscreens, rear cameras and good quality speakers. The hardware too is usually underpowered and this translates into laggy interface and slow apps, something that is sure to ruin your tablet experience. Poor microphone and audio quality follow in most cases. Build quality might also take a hit depending on how much the manufacturer wants to cut down the market price. Simply said, a budget tablet will not perform most of the functions that a high end tablet will and of the few things that it can do, it will most likely not do any of them with any degree of perfection.
Another issue with budget tablets is software updates and support. Being a budget product with underpowered hardware the manufacturer finds it difficult to add new features via software updates because in most cases the system can barely handle the current system. Also manufacturers tend to concentrate more on their flagship products and the budget devices are left without software support i.e. no software updates or troubleshooting.
However if you’re on the market to try out a new OS or just get a feel of a tablet, a budget tablet makes for an ideal choice. With their low cost and high availability they are perfect for people who want to try tablets or people who are looking for cheap tablet solution.
