The new Cherry Trail X5-Z8350 chipset is now replacing the older Z8300 models. Although there are plenty to choose from, I have narrowed my search to a few. These are my top budget tablets this month of January.
If you are on a budget, here are my budget Tablet choices below.
Cube iWork1x. Cube’s latest budget entry, a change to the new Cherry Trail X5-Z8350 is surprisingly good. Even with a plastic build, it still one of my best choices. It offers slightly improved performance over the Z8300, the keyboard accessory is also well constructed. The 1080p screen is also quite good. Here are more information below

- Supports USB 3.0
- 4 GB RAM running at 1600MHz
- 5 hours of average use (8500mAh)
Chuwi Hi10 Pro (Z8350). A reboot of the Z8300, it’s one of the most popular tablet of 2016. On 2017, it is now slightly faster and much better. It also has a good 1200p Display and has USB Type C connectivity. It is a 2 in 1 Convertible Tablet, so it has an optional keyboard. It is also one of the cheapest Refreshed tablets to offer Dual OS support.
