The tablets are not doing very well in this period, but as a category of gadgets they have not yet finished having their say. The most compact products, in particular, are still able to replace uncomfortable computers for the most common operations, and in reading and watching films and TV series remain light years ahead of smartphones.

We have compiled a short list of most interesting mini tabletson the market, ordering them according to a criterion that in the choice of these products is now the most popular: that of the price.

We liked Nvidia's tablet at the time of its release, and thanks to a particularly powerful processor and excellent optimization of the Android operating system it aged very well. The Californian house proposes it in recent months to a mainstream public, stripped of its aggressive design and included stylus nib. In other words, the form changes, but the substance remains. And the price is lowered by 100 euros.

Asus Zenpad S 8.0 Dimensions: 203.2 x 134.5 x 6.6 mm | Weight: 298 grams | Display: 8 inch LCD | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 pixels | Operating System: Android Lollipop | Processor: Intel Atom Z3569 | RAM: 2 GB | Camera: 8 + 5 megapixels | Internal memory: 32 GB + microSD | Battery: 4000 mAh | Price: 269 euros

With an elegant and refined look, the Taiwanese tablet looks good; light and thin, but despite the reduced thickness also well equipped: the Intel processor on board for example moves everything with adequate fluidity, even if the strong point of the offer for the display: a panel of 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution in format 3 : 2 which makes the gadget also suitable for vertical use. All at an affordable price.

Huawei Mediapad M2 8.0 Dimensions: 214.8 x 124 x 7.8 mm | Weight: 330 grams | Display: 8 inch LCD | Resolution: 1920 x 1200 pixels | Operating System: Android Lollipop | Processor: HiSilicon Kirin 930 | RAM: 2 GB | Camera: 8 + 2 megapixels | Internal memory: 16 GB + microSD | Battery: 4800 mAh | Price: 279 euros

Except for the size, as the years go by the Mini version of iPad becomes more refined and indistinguishable from the classic one. In the Mini 4, we crammed everything we can find in the iPad Air in a fraction of the space. Those who work with the tablet may have problems using it continuously, but for content consumption it has few rivals. Too bad for the internal memory, which is paid for handsomely.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8Size: 198.6 x 134.8 x 5.6 mm | Weight: 265 grams | Display: 8 inches AMOLED | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 pixels | Operating System: Android Lollipop | Processor: Samsung Exynos 5433 | RAM: 3 GB | Camera: 8 + 2.1 megapixels | Internal memory: 32 GB + microSD | Battery: 4000 mAh | Price: 489 euros

The 1536 x 2048 pixel Super AMOLED display is surely the ace in the sleeve of the Samsung tablet, which stands out above the others thanks to the images it produces: at the same time super defined and with an overwhelming impact. The tablet is also the thinnest of the group and incorporates a sensor for fingerprints, but its high price: better to look for some offer on the Net.
