Here Are The Top 10 Best HDMI Tablet Computers 2020
While the Apple iPad started the tablet bandwagon and continues to be a market leader in sales, there are still a few things it can't do. Indeed, HDMI-equipped tablet computers trumpet their HDMI connectivity as an advantage over the iPad. The ability to connect directly to a computer monitor or television via a HDMI cable makes it easy to share photos, videos, and presentations to a group of people, and on a much larger screen.
While the vast majority of HDMI-equipped smartphones have a micro HDMI port, in tablets, it varies and some models opt for the slightly bigger mini HDMI connector. So, for uniformity, try to get a tablet that uses the same HDMI format as your other portable devices.
If the ability to connect to a monitor or HDTV is a requirement for your next tablet purchase, check out this list:
Based on this HDMI tablet computer's aggregated ranking of 93%, we believe that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is currently Alphachooser's best HDMI tablet computer 2020. Furthermore, we think that our sample of 1913 reviews from multiple sources gives us a high
confidence level (more on confidence levels
) that pushes us to call it a "no-brainer best choice."

In spite of not having a rear camera, the Onda Obook 20 Plus looks intent to persuade consumers with specs like a 1.84GHz clock speed (at the fastest), 4GB of RAM, and a thickness of only 8mm -- while also being able to accommodate a detachable tablet keyboard (which, unfortunately, is sold separately).
The NuVision TM800W610L's 1920 x 1200 display resolution, 2GB RAM, and Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor (which runs at a clock speed of 1.84GHz, at its fastest) are the specs that give it a lead over the average tablet -- but it's worth noting that it comes in both Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home versions, as well.
The Tbook 10S gives users the option to boot either to Windows 10 or to Android 5.0 lollipop.
The Onda V80 Plus isn't the best in terms of its 2-megapixel main cam and 4200mAh power pack, but its display specs (a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and an 8-inch diagonal) and the fact that it supports both Windows 10 and Android 5.1 give this tablet extra appeal.
The Nextbook Flexx 11A's 2-megapixel rear camera and 1366 x 768 screen resolution aren't exactly the most forgiving specs for multimedia lovers, but its 1.84GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and detachable keyboard make it a matching tablet for productivity-focused folks.
The ASUS Transformer Book T101HA is a 2-in-1 HDMI tablet computer whose most distinguishing facet is its detachable keyboard with a reversible hinge, allowing it to double up as a laptop, with a full-sized USB port, a micro-USB port, and a headphone jack joining its micro-HDMI port. According to one of its reviewers, its biggest advantage over cousins like the T100 Chi
is that its keyboard no longer needs to be charged separately.
This (rating temporarily unavailable)-star HDMI tablet also gets ahead some close competitors listed here at AlphaChooser in terms of hardware, packing an Intel CHERRY Trail quad-core X5 engine clocked at 1.44GHz on standard mode or 1.92GHz on turbo mode, a massive (by HDMI tablet standards) 4GB RAM, and a battery that, according to one reviewer, easily lasts for 8-11 hours of up-time on a single charge . On the other hand, its software perks are led by a pre-installed Windows 10 ecosystem infused with Microsoft's Cortana personal assistant, which a good number of buyers also praised in their reviews. Users also loved its compact and light body, making it quite easy to carry around.
Some users cautioned that the Transformer Book T101HA slows down whenever you go beyond 5 tabs on the browser, while some reported cases of random freezing, lags, and keyboards that continually disconnect for no reason. Note that as we were writing this, only 23 percent of its review count were 1-star rants, which is still within the acceptable range for HDMI tablets.
Wrapping up, we turn to our automated review crawler, which analyzed 109142 reviews for tablets that fall into this category, for a conclusion, and it says that the ASUS Transformer Book T101HA is a viable 2-in-1 model, although there are better-reviewed HDMI tablets on this AlphaChooser list.
This 8-incher tablet from NuVision's Windows lineup has a bunch of promising specs like a 1920 x 1200 display, a 1.83GHz processor (through the help of Intel Burst Technology), and a 5-megapixel camera -- all of which are relatively more favorable compared to those of other similar-priced models.
The Insignia Flex 10.1 tablet shows off some high-tier muscle with its 32GB of built-in memory and a 6000mAh battery, but it probably won't bag any trophies once you take notice of its 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 1GB RAM, and a 1280 x 800 display resolution.
Made available only in white and holding on to ordinary 2-megapixel front-and-back cameras, the dual-OS Teclast X80 Pro tablet sings a rather-high-end song, being equipped with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage capacity, and a 1920 x 1200 screen resolution.
Offered only in a white variant, the dual-OS Teclast X80 Plus tablet flaunts 32GB of storage capacity, 2GB of RAM, and a maximum video resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, but it also banks on rather-disappointing 2-megapixel front-and-rear cameras.
The i10X bundles a single MicroUSB to USB OTG cable to compensate for the lack of a regular USB port (most 2-in-1 tablet hybrids feature at least one regular USB port)...
The Nextbook 10 was designed to deliver the feel of a laptop in a tablet, with a faster-than-average 1.83GHz processor, Windows 8.1, and a removable keyboard -- although its 2-megapixel rear camera and 1GB RAM fail are specs that fail to impress.
The Insignia Flex 11.6 tablet can be seen flirting with mostly-high-tier tablets, flaunting above-average specs, such as a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, 32GB of memory, and 2GB of RAM, but quite-unfortunately, it only gets a 1.3GHz CPU (which we cannot find out how many cores it uses).
The NVIDIA SHIELD K1 has been dubbed as "the best tablet at its price point" by a great number of its buyers. It comes equipped with a mini HDMI port, which seems to suit its graphics-oriented profile well.
Earning a rating of (rating temporarily unavailable) stars from reviews, this tablet couples it HDMI capability with an NVIDIA Tegra K1 192 Core Kepler GPU, which is a common raving point among reviewers. In addition, the quality of the display has apparently been impressive for most people, which makes the device a delight to use for streaming videos, drawing sketches, and viewing photos. Graphically-demanding games also reportedly run nice and smooth with the responsive display.
However, it's important to note that this HDMI tablet does not come with accessories -- no HDMI cable, no earphones, and no charger, even. Even then, this doesn't seem to be a major problem for many people -- at least according to the reviews we have encountered -- as the positive attributes of this tablet make the not-so-good ones "feel insignificant." Other things worth knowing is that apparently, the physical buttons on this tablet (for volume adjustment and the on/off button) can be a bit hard to use, mainly due to their being almost level with the frame.
Without a doubt, the NVIDIA SHIELD K1 remains to be an excellent-sounding tablet -- but it appears like it does not stack up to the best of its peers.
The Fusion5 FWIN232 tablet welds together some rather-high-end specs, such as 2GB of RAM, 32GB of integrated memory, and a 4-core 1.83GHz CPU, but it also gets coupled with a below-average 300-minute usage time and a hefty 40-ounce weight.
The ElitePad 1000 G2 L4A46UT uses an outer casing that has been treated with an antimicrobial preservative to protect against degradation.
Although its 1.8GHz Intel Atom CPU is undoubtedly a catch for a low-end tablet such as itself, the Nextbook Ares 8L still largely settles for basic specs, including a 2-megapixel rear-facing shooter, a 1280 x 800 display, and 1GB of RAM.
Reading through a portion of the Dragon Touch X10's reviews, it's clear that a significant number of people deem it a good tablet "for the price." According to many consumers, this (rating temporarily unavailable)-star-rated device, which sports a mini HDMI port, looks and feels solid with its 10-inch display. The 16:9 screen ratio is reportedly quick and responsive, making it enjoyable for buyers who are into watching movies, reading eBooks, and writing down notes.
Aside from the HDMI port, the X10 also boasts a dedicated charging port that's separate from the micro-USB connector. This helps alleviate a point of concern raised by buyers, who have said that this tablet suffers from very slow charging. Apparently, a more "normal" charging pace can be achieved by using both the DC and micro-USB ports at the same time. In addition, the full-size USB port has been a major strength for this HDMI tablet (which doesn't come with an HDMI cable, by the way).
As for the user experience, most reviewers were happy to report that this runs Android close to the stock version, which means there's less bloatware for users to deal with. However, a popular point of criticism that we have seen involves its audio, with a bunch of people not being completely-pleased with the quality and loudness of the speakers.
Based on the 109142 surveyed reviews for the entirety of HDMI tablets, the Dragon Touch X10 falls short of becoming included in the top 10 models, but in the end, it's still a decent tablet on its own.
Details: yes (Mini)
The Lenovo MIIX 3 10-30 tablet blends a rather-top-tier drink, which consists of 64GB of storage capacity, a 1920 x 1200 display resolution, and 2GB of RAM, but it also gives off a somewhat-ordinary flavor, due to its 2-megapixel front-and-rear cameras and a 4-core 1.3GHz CPU.
The Lenovo Ideapad Miix 300 tablet's 64GB looks like a good concept, but it also has its share of commonly-seen features, like a resolution that barely makes it to HD (1280 x 800) and an ordinary quad 1.3Ghz processor.
The Cintiq 27QHD seems that it should perform well for people who do cross-platform work, based on its being HDMI and DisplayPort-ready in addition to sporting five USB 3.0 ports...
Kid-friendly Android 4.4 tablet with Parental Controls and Safe Web Browser apps, that pulls off some decent mid-range specs like a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and a 1GB RAM, despite its adorable look.
RCA's 10 Viking Pro is a 2-in-1 HDMI tablet whose biggest selling points, at least according to most of the reviews we sampled at the time of writing, is its price-to-feature ratio. Many of its reviewers say that this RCA tablet's screen is as vivid as it gets for something that was pegged at less than 100 dollars as we were checking it out -- several other tablets within its price group, including its RCA 10 Viking II Pro
successor, are also listed here at AlphaChooser. A few other of its noteworthy features are its microSD card slot, which is always a plus for HDMI tablets and the fact that it comes with a 2-megapixel camera up front and on the back (a lot of its rivals tend to settle for only one camera, not that photography is that big of a deal for budget-tier tablets). Some users also appreciate its smart charger, which stops whenever it reaches maximum battery capacity, obviously to avoid overheating .
This (rating temporarily unavailable)-star tablet was not immune from some negative feedback, however, with one particular buyer saying that the fact that all of its ports and buttons are jammed into one side of the device might seem a little odd for some users. Its relatively cheap plastic shell received some flak as well, although it is an obvious setback for something that's highly unlikely to break the bank. Additionally, it has its fair share of typical complaints, such as ones about its poor performance, random screen freezes, and short battery life, but, at the end of the day, its positive reviews overpower the negative ones -- that is, as of this write-up.
So, turning to our review-crawling algorithm, which analyzed 109142 reviews for HDMI tablets, for a verdict, the RCA 10 Viking Pro winds up as nothing special, given the number of HDMI tablets with higher review scores on this list.
Affordable 10-inch Windows tablet with business and work-friendly features such as the latest Office 365 apps and a 1.8GHz quad-core processor.
A classy-looking tablet flaunting a brushed-metal body with an 8-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution TFT display and packing a 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 CPU with 2GB of RAM, and a micro-HDMI port.
Details: Yes (Micro-HDMI)
12-inch Windows tablet that claims laptop-like performance and usability, but does not include a keyboard, which must be purchased at an extra cost.
10-inch high-end business tablet with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, Windows 8.1 (64-bit) operating system, and a bigger-than-usual (256GB) internal storage.
With its variety of ordinary specs, such as 8GB of storage capacity, 1GB of RAM, a 4-core 1.3GHz CPU, and a sad-looking 0.3-megapixel selfie camera, the Azpen A1040 squeezes itself right into the low-end tablet group.
The Toshiba Encore is a relatively-thick and heavy tablet, but it hopes to make up for this by offering specs like a 1.8GHz clock speed, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel main camera sensor, and 14.1 hours' worth of usage.
Offering face recognition software for security, the Lenovo Miix 2 11 tablet also flaunts a couple of rather-high-end specs, which include a 1.6GHz processor and 4GB RAM, not to mention that its memory can be expanded by up to two terabytes using a SSD.
The Cintiq 13HD comes with a Pro Pen, which boasts 40 degrees of pen-tilt recognition and 2048 pressure levels -- all designed to aid graphic artists at work.
Ematic's Genesis Prime XL is a relatively cheap (It was priced at just below 100 dollars as of this AlphaChooser write-up) HDMI tablet designed for practically-minded shoppers who just want the essentials. For a couple of its reviewers, this (rating temporarily unavailable)-star model's biggest deal-breaker is the fact that it comes with only 1GB of RAM and a 4GB storage memory that's at least accompanied by a micrSD card slot for up to 32GB more space, giving it one of the lowest RAM-memory configurations among tablets within its price group. Some also complained that it needed constant rebooting and that its 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera (It has no rear cam) is ancient-sounding, although photography is not exactly the forte of tablet computers.
As for its optimistic users, many described the Genesis Prime XL as having a great value-to-price ratio, adding that its build quality and HDMI connectivity felt solid enough for a model of its kind . Some users, particularly those who appreciate simplicity, say that it is fit for workers who just want to keep in touch with clients or even as a gift to the kids or to non-techie husbands, especially with its reasonable price. Its color range, which includes playful finishes like Pink and Purple on top of the typical Black and Silver options, is also not something you see everyday in the HDMI tablet category.
With a 10-inch 1024 x 600 display and a 3000mAh battery rounding out its features, our review-crawling system, which, by the way, scrutinized a total of 109142 reviews for tablets with HDMI connectors, came to the conclusion that the Ematic Genesis Prime XL is not a very promising HDMI tablet, at least not in comparison to the best-reviewed ones towering above it on this AlphaChooser list.
The Archos 97 Carbon may be a tablet that might require carbon dating, given the outdated feel of its specs (a 1024 x 768 resolution and 1GHz's worth of processor speed, anyone), but it remains to be a viable low-cost option, with its average memory specs (16GB of ROM and 1GB of RAM) and passable 2-megapixel rear camera.
