What cheap tablet is the best?

Episode 1319 (2:05:41)

Joe from New York
Amazon Fire Tablet

Joe wants to know how much he should spend on a tablet to get a decent one. Leo says not a lot. The Nexus 7 is $200 and it runs great. Samsung is a great place to look as well. The best place for a good tablet, though, is Google itself. That way he'll get updates as they come out.

Leo is starting to think that the tablet category may have run its course. Sure, you can buy a $20 cheapie from the gas station, but it won't ever get updated. Leo advises that Joe stick with Google. PC Mag has the Best Android Tablets for 2016. The $49 Amazon Fire is the best of the cheap brands.
