If you prefer Google's Android OS to Apple's iOS, opting for an Android tablet over an iPad makes a lot of sense. Throw in the fact that iPads can often cost over £1,000, and it's no wonder many customers are making the switch to Android.

Tablets are a convenient alternative to laptops for a number of everyday tasks, and there are plenty of affordable options out there. For example, there's the wide range of cheap Amazon Fire devices, including the popular Fire HD 8 for Kids. These won't match up with many Android tablets in terms of performance, though.
