The Bottom Line With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get. It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet. For those looking to save a buck, for its low price, the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 has a bevy of useful features, though there are better performing options out there.
