(SPOT.ph) In the age of remote work, more and more people are switching out their PCs for more travel-friendly options like laptops or, if portability is a top priority, trading their laptops for tablets. When tablets were first introduced into the mainstream market, they functioned almost like larger cell phones, offering handy features, but still only supplementary to desktop models. These days, they’re more like mini computers, providing users access to bandwidth-heavy apps and features you’d normally get on a notebook or a PC, but in a light, compact package that doesn’t sacrifice power for portability. Plus, the touch-screen technology that tablets use make them much more versatile tools for creative tasks like making graphics, editing videos, or taking notes. If you’ve been looking to invest in a tablet of your own to replace your usual work laptop, you’re in the right place. Before you blow 50 grand on a fancy new model, check out these great tablets you can get in the Philippines for less than P30,000.

If you’re dead-set on an Apple model, but don’t have the budget for a Pro, the newest iPad Mini is your best—just keep in mind only the model with 64 GB memory capacity is under the P30,000, so you’ll have to shell out a few more thousands if you need more storage space. Unveiled in late 2021, the device is a great option if you want a tablet small enough to fit into even a small purse—it’s all screen build is only 8.3 inches in size and has flat edges to match newer iPhone and iPad Pro models. Don’t be fooled by its compact build, the itty-bitty model has a 12-megapixel camera that can record in 4K, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens up front. Apple calls it the “most powerful and versatile” Mini yet.

Just because you’re moving away from laptops, doesn’t mean you have to settle for a small screen. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE boasts a 12.4-inch mini-LED display—at par with smaller laptops on the market both in terms of size and resolution. The device is powered by a high-performing Snapdragon 778G chipset, which promises smooth and fast streaming, scrolling, and operation. It’s built with 128 GB of memory capacity, but is also compatible with microSD cards up to 1TB so you should have no problem with storing larger files in the tablet. Best of all, the S7 FE comes with Samsung’s fan-favorite S Pen, which allows for fuss-free photo editing, note-taking, and more.

Available online and at Samsung retailers nationwide.

According to TechRadar, the Huawei MatePad 11’s most notable feature is its hardware. The 2K display with a 120HZ refresh rate, Snapdragon 865 chipset, and 7,250 mAh battery make for a reliable device that can run most basic Android apps. Throw in the slim design and 485-gram build and it’s a great entry-level model for those looking for portability, but nothing too complex. And while the device is in the higher P20,000 range, it comes with a Smart Magnetic Keyboard, an M-Pencil, and a protective case, making the device a great bang for your buck.

Available on Lazada.

Unveiled in 2021, the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus was designed for both work and play, delivering multi-purpose operation for productivity as well as entertainment. The 2000 x 1200 display and quad-speaker stereo with Dolby Atmos makes for great visuals and sounds whether you’re hopping on a video call or streaming a new series. The tablet also has a 13-megapixel rear cam and an 8-megapixel front-facing lens for capturing memories or delivering a great presentation to your team.

If you’re looking for a tablet below the five-digit mark, Amazon’s low-cost Fire lineup is one of the best in the lower range. It’s a great entry-level option for basic tasks like streaming videos, participating in virtual meetings, reading e-books, answering e-mails, making to-do lists, and more—the eight-inch HD display is smaller compared to most mainstream tablets, but gives you just enough real estate to boost the visuals you might get out of a smartphone. It’s not the most versatile option out there, especially as you’ll be mostly limited to Amazon’s app store, but if you’re looking to keep your tech collection simple and you’ll mostly be sticking to basic tasks, the Fire 8 should be right up your alley.

Available online.

Xiaomi Pad 5 (P19,990)

The 11-inch display, 2560×1600 resolution, and quad speakers work well with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor to deliver both smooth visuals and seamless operation. You also get an 8-megapixel front camera, a 13-megapixel rear lens, and an 8,720 mAh battery that’s compatible with fast-charging technology.

Available on Lazada.

With a 10.4-inch screen, a 440-gram build, a 7,100 mAh battery, and 8-megapixel cameras on both sides, the realme Pad—the first-ever tablet from the brand, released in 2021—is a great option if you’re looking for a model that’s neither too big nor too small, but still packs a lot of power. Despite its compact build, it can hold up to 1TB of storage (with memory expansion) and promises sharp, immersive visuals and audio thanks to a 2000 x 1200 resolution with 16.7 million colors and 360 nits of brightness as well as a stereo quad speaker with Dolby Atmos.

Available on Lazada.

Huion Kamvas 20 (P26,890)

The Huion Kamvas 13 is a little different from other tablets on this list as it’s made to be used along with a laptop or PC rather than as a direct replacement for either. The device is suitable for creatives who work best with pens whether on paper or on screen. It’s made to be connected to a computer and creates an extension that lets you edit photos, illustrate portraits, and customize graphics with more precision than a regular mouse would allow. The 13.3-inch screen promises lots of space for you to exercise your creativity and the 1080p resolution lets you view your art in sharp, vibrant quality.
