The 3 Best HDMI Tablet Computers As Of April, 2018 (And 67 Other Models)
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:

On the bright side, the Chuwi Hi10 Plus tablet boots both Android 5.1 Lollipop and Windows 10, offers 4GB of RAM and a 1920 x 1280 display, and runs at a max clock speed of 1.92GHz -- but it also noticeably scrimped on imaging specs and longevity, settling for a 2-megapixel main camera and a 5-hour video playback time in the process.

The Simbans Presto tablet might not draw a lot of applause with its entry-level bag of specs, such as a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, a 1GB RAM, 16GB of built-in memory, and a typical 1280 x 800 display resolution.

Save for its average 8-hour working time and the fact that it doesn't automatically come with the compatible rotary keyboard, the Chuwi Hi13 tablet looks full of promise, if specs like its 3000 x 2000 display resolution, 2.2GHz peak clock speed, and 4GB RAM are to be used as basis.
|Average rating: (74%) (20 reviews over 3 sources)|
The iRULU X40 pledges 2GB's worth of RAM and a 1920 x 1200 display to hopefully satisfy consumers, but it's still a tablet with mostly-unimpressive specs -- evident from the 1.2GHz CPU, 2-megapixel main camera, and bulky 960-gram body.
|Average rating: (62%) (578 reviews)|
Attempting to outweigh the fact that its 6-hour working time and 1280 x 800 screen resolution are both not so impressive, the iRULU Walknbook 2 tablet adds a 1.92GHz (max) processor and 2GB of RAM to its specs list in order to aid the included detachable keyboard in convincing potential users.
|Average rating: (64%) (162 reviews over 3 sources)|
Most, if not all, of the iRULU eXpro 5 S' specs are low-end, as seen on its 2-megapixel main camera and 1GB RAM -- but its 1024 x 768 display resolution takes the cake, as this figure looks almost out of place for a tablet that's being sold in 2018.
|Average rating: (38%) (9 reviews)|
Aside from the included keyboard, the NuVision Duo 11 also has to bank on its 1920 x 1080 display and 64-bit 1.92GHz CPU (with the mentioned speed being the maximum) to make a mark on the tablet market, considering that its camera specs (at 5 megapixels on the rear and 2 megapixels up front) aren't all that impressive.
The Panasonic FZ-G1 tablet clearly wants to make a statement with its 3GHz (at the fastest) processor, 8GB RAM, and various rugged ratings (IP65, MIL-STD-810G, and MIL-STD-461F) -- but it chokes as far as its out-of-the-box battery specs (at 4200mAh) are concerned.
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.
|Average rating: (70%) (317 reviews over 2 sources)|
The Nextbook Ares 10A's specs may mostly be average at best (like the 1GB RAM or the 1280 x 800 display, for instance), but it runs at a clock speed of 1.92GHz (courtesy of a quad-core CPU), which gives it an advantage over other budget tablets.
|Average rating: (58%) (21 reviews)|
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 Panasonic FZ-Y1 passes itself as a tablet designed for multimedia professionals and attempts to prove itself worthy by offering a 20-inch 4K display, 8GB of RAM, and a processor that clock in at 2.9GHz (at its fastest) -- although concerns may be raised over its 2-hour working time.
Details: Yes (version 2.0)
The ASUS Transformer Book T101HA 10-inch tablet keeps a fairly-high-end vibe going with its honeycomb-accentuated keyboard, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of built-in memory, but it also carries an ordinary-specked loadout, which includes a 1280 x 800 display resolution and a lone 2-megapixel selfie camera.
The Transformer Mini T102HA shows off a Quick Launch feature, which allows users to open apps or put the tablet in sleep mode by making on-screen gestures or swiping patterns.
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 Teclast P80H takes a seat among other basic tablets, exchanging stories about basic specs, which include 8GB of storage capacity, 1GB of RAM, a 4-core 1.3GHz CPU, and a 3500mAh battery, but it also brags about its ability to power other devices through OTG.
Outweighing a lot of tablets with its 35.2-ounce weight, the OTG-capable Ecvilla You Mi You shows off a rather-premium 8-core 2GHz CPU, but it might not totally impress the high-end crowd with its 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of storage capacity, and 1GB of RAM.
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.
While it carries a simple 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 1280 x 800 display resolution, the Lenovo IdePad Miix 310 tablet attends a fairly-high-end gathering with its 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and 64GB of storage capacity while being escorted by a detachable keyboard that has two full-sized USB ports.
Its 5-megapixel rear-facing camera is not that impressive, but the Dual-OS Chuwi HiBook tablet steers its way toward high-end seas with its 4GB of RAM, 64GB of integrated memory, and a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution (Chuwi, however, also cited a still-rather-high-end 1920 x 1200 resolution on its specs page).
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)...
Keeping a fairly-slim profile with its 7.6-millimeter thickness, the ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi tablet struts around a top-tier neighborhood, carting along a detachable keyboard, 256GB of built-in memory, 8GB of RAM, a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and a screwless aluminum finish.
Touted as the "2016 Edition" of the original A1X Plus, the Dragon Touch A1X Plus 2016 tablet still seems to come with the same ordinary specs, which include a 10-inch display that has a 1024 x 600 resolution, a 1GB RAM, and 16GB of built-in memory -- and there is even a slightly-slower 1.2GHz quad-core CPU.
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 RCA Cambio 10.1 offers a budget take on the 2-in-1 tablet, with mostly low-end specs -- like a 1280 x 800 display, a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera, and six hours of usage -- riding on the promise of its 1.92GHz (maximum) CPU and 2GB RAM.
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.
While its quad-core CPU can gallop at an above-average 1.8GHz, the Nextbook Ares 8 tablet looks inclined to wage only an entry-level war, being armed with typical specs, such as 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in memory, and a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Its 2-megapixel front-and-back cameras and 1280 x 800 display resolution are not really worth calling home about, but the Kocaso W1010 tablet might get more attention with its 32GB of built-in memory, 2GB of RAM, a detachable keyboard, and a 6000mAh battery.
The Kocaso W700 tablet heads out holding a basket of low-end specs, such as a 2500mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, and a 1024 x 600 display resolution, but it also uses a 1.83GHz quad-core CPU, which seems to be its main takeaway.
Neutab's 7-inch Android 4.4 KitKat tablet that identifies itself among other basic-tier slates, but counts on its HDMI output port and 8-hour battery life as some of its redeeming details.
7-inch Android tablet built with entry-to-mid level specs, including a 1.4GHz 4-core processor, a 1GB RAM, and a 1-megapixel front cam, probably as a means to make it affordable.

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.

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.

Its red, blue, and pink faceplates look fun, but given its short 90-day warranty and mostly basic specs, such as a 2-megapixel camera, a 1GHz CPU, and 8GB of memory, we cannot seem to find anything "Pro" about the Ematic FunTab Pro.
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.
While the Toshiba Excite Pure's 13.5-hour usage time and audio-enhancing features are promising, it is still a tablet that's made up of mostly-basic-level specs, including a 1.2-megapixel front camera sensor, a 1280 x 800 screen resolution, and only 1GB of RAM.
