2. Google Nexus 7
Price: from £159
OS: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Review score: 4.5/5
With a quad-core processor, beefy 12-core GPU, 7-inch HD IPS display and being the first device to run Android Jelly Bean, the Google Nexus 7 is quite simply the best budget tablet out there.
The 16GB version is available for just £159, while the 32GB model will only set you back £199. It's quite possibly the bargain of the century.
There are a few shortcomings – such as no microSD card slot, meaning you're stuck with 32GB at most, and no rear camera – although these can be easily overlooked at this startlingly attractive price.
