Benchmarks and specifications compared: Android tablets under Rs....

If you are investing Rs. 10,000 on a tablet, you are probably new to the tablet genre and are looking to try your hand at this category before gunning for an iPad or the “A” league devices. But which of these tablets will give you an overall value for your money?

We have with us eight budget Android tablets that are below the 10k price tag. All these tablets boast of Android OS and some decent power under the hood.

A score of 0 for a benchmark in the below graphs signifies that the benchmark didn’t run on the tablet.

In this comparison, we’ll see that it’s not necessary that a tablet that costs more is a better device. We have tablets that cost a mere Rs. 7,000 approximately, and have performed better in terms of benchmarks when compared to tablets that cost roughly Rs. 10,000.
 

The tablets that are a part of this comparison are:
