Despite the fact that modern smartphones with their huge touch screens in recent years have pretty much pressed the tablet computers market (so as not to be confused with graphic tablets for designers, we will call them simply tablets), the latter remain tightly in their niche and are not going to disappear anywhere. And a separate sub-niche in this area is inexpensive tablets.

The best tablets under 5000 rubles with the best screens
There is a whole list of important criteria when choosing a tablet, and one of the most important is screen characteristics. This includes its size, matrix type and resolution. Our experts were guided by the optimal combination of these criteria when choosing noteworthy options.
Prestigio Wize PMT3161C 3G
The rating is opened by a rather powerful tablet with a large diagonal of the Prestigio brand. This is a slightly 'partisan' brand, since it belongs to the ASBIS holding, which is headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus, and the holding itself belongs to our compatriot Sergei Kostevich. This is such a complex combination, which, nevertheless, is quite common for brands of household appliances and electronics well-known on the Russian market. And experience shows that such examples are often very effective. Prestigio is just one such example. The model is quite new, it was announced only last 2018.
Tablet screen size – 10.1 “, overall dimensions of the device – 242x172x10 mm, weight – 540 g. The body is made of plastic, only one color solution is offered – black. Design – classic.
Screen resolution – 1280×800 widescreen. Matrix type – IPS with characteristic maximum viewing angles of 178 degrees. The coating is glossy, the screen, of course, is touch-sensitive, capacitive with multitouch support.
A tablet is built on the basis of a 4-core CPU MediaTek MT8321 with a frequency of 1.3GHz cores. RAM is provided 1GB, built-in – 8GB. Expansion potential due to external flash memory – plus up to 32GB. Standard operating system – Android 7.0.
For wireless communication, the tablet has 802.11n and Bluetooth generation 4.0 Wi-Fi modules. Also, the tablet can be used for GSM communication, like a 'big smartphone'. For this there is a separate radio module with a slot for a 3G-enabled SIM card.
The multimedia capabilities of the tablet of this model are literally basic – you cannot expect top cameras for such a price. There is a 2MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front camera. There are also good standard speakers, a microphone and an FM tuner.
You can also connect to the tablet via the micro-USB interface. The same connector is used for charging. Battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. There is also a standard headset output.
The package bundle is extremely laconic – tablet, network adapter, USB cable, documentation.
- high-quality image;
- a high resolution;
- large diagonal;
- strong body;
- capacious battery.
- quiet sound.
Prestigio Wize PMT3131C 3G
Now, in the second position of the rating, we will consider a model that is almost completely identical to the previous one with microscopic differences, from the same manufacturer, but for inexplicable reasons is much cheaper. Most likely, it was the 'naked' marketing and novelty effect that worked here. This model came out corny earlier than the previous one.
So, the technical characteristics here can not be painted, but submitted in the 'blitz' mode, since most of them completely repeat the above-described tablet. Screen size – 10.1 “, resolution – 1280×800, matrix type – IPS, multitouch. Processor – MediaTek MT8321 with a frequency of 4 cores of 1.3 GHz. Memory – 1GB of operational and 8GB of built-in; expandable due to external flash drives for another 32GB. Communications: Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, GSM (including 3G), micro-USB. Rear camera – 2MP, front – 0.3MP, speakers, FM tuner, 3.5 standard audio output mm. Battery capacity – 5000 mAh.
This tablet has a slight difference in size, and it is even lighter than the previous one – 470g. Importantly, it supports two SIM cards for GSM communication, while the one described above only supports one. And one more thing – the version Android here is older – 6.0.
- high-quality assembly;
- soft-touch coating;
- responsive multitouch;
- capacious battery;
- rich colors and large viewing angles.
- for such a price, objective flaws are difficult to detect.
Digma Plane 8550S 4G
The nomination for the rating of tablets up to 5000 rubles with the best screens is completed by the model of the Digma trademark, owned by Nippon Klick Corporation (Hong Kong). This is a good option for those who need a smaller tablet, but not at the expense of the screen resolution. This model was announced last 2018.
So, the most noticeable thing about this model is the smaller screen size. It is 8 “, while the resolution is the same as the two previous solutions – 1280×800. That is, it is easy to understand that the pixel density will be higher and the image, respectively, will be sharper. In combination with the IPS technology, all this gives an impeccable picture.
The electronics parameters of this model are similar to the previous two options, but not quite. If the memory configuration here is exactly the same – 1 and 8GB of RAM and built-in, respectively, then the processor is different – Spreadtrum SC9832. True, the key parameters of the processor are the same – 4 cores at up to 1.3 GHz each. External memory is also supported by a separate slot, the system 'sees' up to 32GB of external flash card.
The wireless configuration is exactly the same as the previous model, but with one powerful advantage. There are 802.11n and Bluetooth Generation 4.0 Wi-Fi wireless communication modules. There are also two slots for SIM cards GSM-communication with 3G support and, attention! – 4G LTG is something that the two previous tablets do not have. The operating system here is the newest of the three devices in this rating nomination – Android 8.1.
With regard to multimedia, the situation here is exactly the same as in the two previous tablets: the rear camera (with flash) is 2 megapixels, the front camera is 0.3 megapixels, speakers, a microphone. There is an accelerometer and automatic screen orientation.
The wired interfaces of this model are the same laconic as those of the two described above – a micro-USB connector and a standard 3.5 mm headset output.
The battery in this model has a smaller capacity than the other two, but not much – 4000 mAh, and against the background of smaller size and lower power consumption, this does not affect autonomy in any way.
Dimensions of the device – 208.4×123.6×10.6 mm, weight – 320 g. Made of durable plastic in a classic design.
- a high resolution;
- high-quality image;
- good autonomy;
- fresh Android 8.1 Oreo;
- clean operating system without imposed software;
- two sim cards;
- 4G support.
- point assembly flaws;
- weak flash.
The best tablets under 5000 rubles with the best cameras
Now, in the rating of the best tablets under 5000 rubles according to the version, we are moving on to those models that buyers appreciate for cameras with good resolution. Tablets are very often used by users in order to capture the bright moments of life, and the large diagonal even allows you to immediately carry out simple photo editing, and instantly send the result to Instragram, Facebook or anywhere.
However, with such a budget – up to 5,000 rubles – one cannot count on a powerful camera, say 12-13 Megapixels, not to mention a double one. It is necessary that, in addition to the camera, everything else in the tablet is not a one-time inoperative misunderstanding. While maintaining this balance, aiming to fit into 5 thousand rubles, you can count on the main camera with a resolution of up to 5 megapixels. These are the two models that our experts have looked after for you.
The first in a pair of tablets of this nomination of the rating, we will consider the model of the Irbis trademark. This is a Russian brand owned by Treolan, which, in turn, is part of the LANIT group of companies – one of the largest players in the domestic IT market. This model was announced in 2017.
In many ways, this tablet is similar to the model from the previous Digma Plane 8550S group. Firstly, the screen diagonal is 8 “. Secondly, the resolution is not bad in this class – 1280×800 (matrix – IPS with good angles, glossy finish, multitouch). Thirdly – the type and power of the processor – 4-core Spreadtrum SC9832 with frequency up to 1.3GHz Fourthly – memory configuration: 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in, expansion slot for flash cards up to 32GB.
With communication, too, everything is the same – support for Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0. The tablet can be used as a mobile phone in the same way – there are two slots for SIM cards, 3G and LTE are supported. Importantly, this model also contains a GPS satellite navigation module with A-GPS 'cold start' support.
As for the nomination topic, the rear camera is 5MP with flash, the front camera is 2MP. The rest of the multimedia elements are built-in speakers and a microphone, a standard FM tuner. Who cares about the type of GPU, then the Mali-400 MP is installed here. As for the operating system, this tablet has the current 7.0 at the time of release Android.
The autonomy of the tablet is slightly lower than that of the previous model due to a slightly less capacious battery – 3800 mAh. Charges also from USB.
Tablet dimensions – 208x123x9.8 mm, weight – 340 g. Made of good plastic, standard design, classic.
- a high resolution;
- high-quality image;
- relatively powerful cameras for this class of devices;
- support for 3G LTE;
- GPS navigation.
- assembly flaws.
Prestigio Wize PMT3618 4G
And again in our rating we return to the Prestigio brand. Consider one interesting, slightly controversial, but worthy model. Its ambiguity lies in the fact that immediately after the release, the tablet received a flurry of criticism for intrusive pre-installed software, which, moreover, behaved in an inappropriate way. In the future, the manufacturer 'corrected', and the reviews of recent years have already been mostly positive. Therefore, when buying, be strictly interested in this issue at the point of sale.
In terms of the screen, this model is no different from the previous one – the same 8 inches, the same 1280×800 resolution, the same IPS technology. The pixel density is 189 PPI. The configuration of the cameras is the same as that of the above-described tablet: 5MP rear and 2MP front. The rest of the multimedia elements are similar – audio output, microphone, speakers, radio.
The electronics are based on the processor MediaTek MT8735 on 4 cores with a frequency of 1.1 GHz. That is, the processor is slightly weaker, but the built-in memory is twice as much – 16GB. The same amount of RAM – 1GB. You can expand the memory due to microSDXC by twice the resource than any of the above tablets – up to 64GB.
The wireless configuration is the same – Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, two SIM cards for GSM communication with 3G and LTE support. There is a GPS satellite positioning module. Wired connection – micro-USB with charging capability.
The battery in this model is noticeably more capacious than the previous one – 4200 mAh. General dimensions of the tablet – 206×122.8×10 mm, net weight – 356 g. The case is plastic, the design is classic.
Some users dislike the 'ancient' Android version 6.0.
- high-quality image;
- relatively powerful cameras;
- two sim cards;
- LTE support;
- intrusive and sometimes harmful pre-installed software in the first releases.
The best tablets under 5,000 rubles with 4G LTE support
An important element in a tablet for those who often move around the city is the availability of full support for high-speed 4G LTE Internet connection. The fourth generation GSM network allows you to surf the Internet at speeds that are more associated with wired fixed office or home connections. Some of the above models have 4G LTE support, and the Internet is quite functional in them. But in this rating category, our experts have selected the models where this particular function works best.
Digma Plane 1715T 4G
The first number in this category of the rating of the best tablets under 5000 rubles according to the version is another model of the Digma trademark (Hong Kong). This is a solid tablet, even with quite wide capabilities, but with a slightly lower screen resolution.
The screen size itself is quite decent, in the diagonal – 10.1 “. The resolution is 1024×600. This is less than any of the above models, but this difference is not so big and not so felt. Moreover, such compromises have to be put up with anyway. if we want to keep within 5 thousand rubles when buying. However, the matrix itself is of high quality, the technology is IPS, the viewing angles are wide, the touchscreen is responsive and smooth. The case is typical – plastic with a classic minimalist design.
Communication capabilities of the tablet include modules of wireless communication Wi-Fi standard 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, as well as two slots for SIM cards for mobile communication with support for 3G and LTE. Wired communication – via micro-USB with rechargeable option. There is a GPS satellite navigation module.
The system is built on the basis of the central processor Spreadtrum SC9832 on 4 cores with a frequency of 1000 MHz. RAM is expected – 1GB, built-in quite a lot – as much as 16GB. Expandable with external microSDXC cards, up to 64 GB. Operating system – Android 7.0.
With cameras, the situation here is not as favorable as in the previous nomination, but there was no calculation for that. Rear – 2MP, front – 0.3MP. The rear is complemented by an LED flash. There are speakers, 3.5 mm audio output.
The tablet is equipped with a rather capacious 5000 mAh battery, which provides very good autonomy.
- large screen;
- responsive touchscreen;
- relatively large amount of built-in memory for this class;
- powerful and stable 4G.
- with all the battery capacity, there are complaints about its lack for comfortable operation.

The screen size in this case is 9.6 “, the screen resolution is 1280×800, the type of matrix is IPS with wide viewing angles typical for this technology. The pixel density is 157 PPI. The screen is touch-sensitive, capacitive, with multitouch support.
The wireless capabilities in this tablet are completely similar to the previous model – the same Wi-Fi 802.11n, the same Bluetooth 4.0, the same two slots for GSM SIM cards with 3G and LTE support. There is also a GPS satellite positioning module with A-GPS cold start support. Wired communication is exactly the same micro-USB connector.

- a high resolution;
- high-quality image;
- powerful GSM 4G LTE connection;

The best tablets under 5000 rubles from the most budget
The final nomination in the rating of the best tablets under 5000 rubles according to the version is the most budgetary tablets that look inexpensive against the background of the already cheap others. Such a tablet can be bought for a child without regret, realizing that the kid will turn it into small fragments rather quickly. But if you take it for yourself, then such a device can be used for simple tasks – simple games, surfing the Internet, using as an e-book, etc. Our experts have selected two acceptable models on the market, both of them are of the domestic Irbis brand. Of course, one should not expect superpowers from them, but they are still capable of something.
Irbis HIT 8Gb (TZ49)
The first in the most budgetary nomination we will consider another model of the domestic Irbis brand. This is the most compact tablet of all of these, the average price of which in well-known Russian online stores does not exceed 1,700 rubles.
The 7 “screen diagonal makes this device a kind of 'average' between a smartphone and a tablet, however, such smartphones still do not exist. So this is a super-compact tablet. The screen resolution in this case also stands out against the background of the above models – 1024×600 pixels Pixel density – 170 PPI All other attributes, without which it is impossible to imagine a full-fledged similar gadget – touchscreen, capacitive screen, glossy coating, standard protective film, multitouch support – all this is fully present.
The electronic basis of the tablet is a processor MediaTek MT8312 on two Cortex-A7 cores with a frequency of up to 1.3 GHz each. The processor is manufactured according to the 28nm process technology. Graphic subsystem – Mali-400 MP.
The RAM is cut in half in comparison with any of the above models – 512MB, with more or less built-in 8GB. Due to the slot for microSDHC cards, you can use external memory cards up to 32GB. The operating system here, of course, is very ancient – Android 4.4.
Communications almost completely repeat the previous model: Wi-Fi 802.11n standard, Bluetooth 4.0 standard, 2 slots for GSM SIM cards from GSM900 to GPRS and 3G. 4G LTE is not supported.
With cameras, things are pretty sad – both, the rear and front ones, have a resolution of 0.3 megapixels each. Mono sound from built-in speaker, microphone and FM tuner. Against the background of limited functionality, the GPS module with A-GPS cold start support stands out. Like all previous tablets, automatic screen orientation is supported here, there is an accelerometer, a wired connection via a micro-USB connector, and a standard 3.5 mm headset output.
The battery in this model is also the most modest in comparison with the others, but the size of the device naturally lowers the energy requirement. Capacity – 2500 mAh. You can charge from USB.
Dimensions of the tablet in its pure form – 188.5×108.5×10.7 mm, weight – 279 g. The case is plastic, the design is ordinary, classic.
- large margin of screen brightness;
- 3G support;
- FM tuner
- GPS module;
- affordable price.
- little RAM – under 'above average' loads, work slows down.
And our rating-review ends with one more unpretentious device of the Irbis trademark. In some places this tablet is a little more powerful or a little weaker than the previous one, but in fact it is more expensive, and now we will figure out why. The tablet was announced in 2017.
The screen size is the same as in the model above – 7 inches, as well as the screen resolution – 1024×600 pixels. The screen is glossy with multitouch support.
The electronic basis of the system is a 4-core Spreadtrum SC7731G central processor with a frequency of cores up to 1.2GB. The graphics processor is Mali-400 MP. RAM is twice as much as in the previous version – 1GB, built-in – the same amount – 8GB. The external memory card slot accepts microSDHC cards up to 32GB.
Wireless Wi-Fi is the same standard as in most of the above tablets – 802.11n, but Bluetooth – the old generation 2.1 EDR. There are two slots for 3G mobile SIM cards. The operating system is much newer than the previous one – Android 7.0. There is also a GPS positioning module with A-GPS support. Wired connection – micro-USB with optional peripheral connection and charging. There is a 3.5 mm audio output.
From multimedia, there is only a 0.3MP front camera, built-in speaker, microphone and FM tuner. Supports automatic screen flip, accelerometer.
The battery here is exactly the same as that of the above-described tablet – with a capacity of 2500 mAh.
Dimensions of the device – 188×107.8×9.9 mm, net weight – 250 g. Plastic case with an ordinary classic design.
- relatively large amount of RAM for this price;
- relatively new Android;
- GPS module;
- two SIM cards with 3G support.
- the viewing angles clearly do not match the IPS technology.
