5 Best Refurbished Tablets for Cheap in 2018

The tablet market has been stagnating for a long time now, with many users switching to large-screen smartphones instead. The current situation created a huge market with refurbished tablets, many of which offer excellent value for a discount price. We’ve rounded up five best refurbished tablets that you can get for cheap in 2018 to help you pick something worth your money.

Apple iPad 2

Years after its official announcement, the Apple iPad 2 still attracts with its elegant design, polished operating system, and large ecosystem of apps. The initial suggested retail price for the 16GB model was $629, but you can now get the same model for less than $100.

Of course, the Apple iPad 2 is no longer the cutting-edge device it once was, but it’s still more than capable of performing all common tasks. The built-in front-facing camera allows you to make video calls with your friends and family, the rear-facing camera can record HD video up to 30 frames per second with audio, and the 9.7-inch display is bright enough for reading in direct sunlight.

You should expect some features to be missing compared with Apple’s latest tablets, but that’s the price you must be willing to pay if you want to get what’s otherwise a fantastic device for less than $100.

Amazon Fire HD 8

Are you an Amazon Prime subscriber? You do own a large library of Kindle ebooks? Do most of your apps come from the Amazon Appstore? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Amazon Fire HD 8 might just be the right refurbished tablet for you.

Besides being incredibly affordable, it’s arguably the best way how to enjoy Amazon’s vast ecosystem of multimedia content. The tablet has a fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1280 x 800 high-definition display with a bright, vivid picture, and up to 12 hours of mixed-use battery life. It also features a front-facing camera for video calls and is far more durable than the Apple iPad 2.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 supports Alexa and provides instant access to the Amazon Digital Music Store, over 600,000 of the most popular free and best-selling apps and games, more than 1 million magazines and books, and all your favorite movies and TV shows on Amazon Video, Netflix, and other on-demand services.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is a well-rounded table with all the bells and whistles you would expect from a Samsung device plus an irresistible price. Just like the Apple iPad 2, the Galaxy Tab A 8 has been available for quite some time, so its hardware specifications don’t amaze nearly as much as they once used to, but that doesn’t mean the tablet can’t handle web browsing, social media, video, games, and other common tasks.

The Galaxy Tab A 8 is slim and lightweight, featuring an 8-inch screen with a fairly small resolution of 1,024 x 768 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio. Text can sometimes appear pixelated, but we wouldn’t say that it’s hard to read. Video and games, on the hard, look sharp all the time. While 4:3 aspect ratio isn’t the best for multimedia, it’s perfect for documents and even the web.

Under the hood of the Galaxy Tab A 8 is a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 1.5 GB of memory, and 16 GB of internal storage space.

Lenovo Tab 10

The Lenovo Tab 10 is a larger tablet with a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The tablet features the still decently powerful Qualcomm APQ8009 quad-core processor, 16 GB of built-in storage space, and a microSD slot for storage expansion. Unfortunately, it only has 1 GB of memory, which means that heavy multitasking isn’t possible.

The Lenovo Tab 10 features a very useful kid’s mode. With it, you can limit how much time your kids can spend in individual apps. You could, for example, allow only one hour of YouTube per day to steer your kids towards educational apps. Thanks to its large display, the Lenovo Tab 10 is also great for the elderly, making it suitable for the whole family.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4

Our last pick is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, which is a competent budget tablet with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. It runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, comes with 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and features a 6800 mAh battery. The tablet’s 10.1-inch screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, and it surprises with its accurate colors, wide viewing angles, and deep blacks.

Like other Samsung mobile devices, the Galaxy Tab 4 feels very solid and well-made, and it has a nice heft to it, weighing 487 grams. We appreciate that the speakers on this tablet are located on the left and right sides because this prevents them from being accidentally covered with hands and leads to a wide soundstage.
