Here Are The Top 10 Best HDMI Tablet Computers 2019
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:
A semi-high-end HDMI tablet, the Sony Xperia Z2 impressed some of its reviewers (We sampled 333 reviews for this model as of this AlphaChooser write-up) with its 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD display, which is infused with the brand's TRILUMINOS display technology, the same one they use for most of their HDTVs. Users also generally loved its performance, with one particular buyer saying that it may be a decent alternative for those who do not fancy any flagship-class tablet or ones from other major brands like Samsung and Apple -- it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8074AB quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, with 3GB's worth of RAM tagging along.
According to many of its reviewers, this 4-star Android tablet also seems to have a decent battery life (It has a 6000mAh battery cell), which sounds particularly promising when coupled with its Verizon LTE network connectivity. Its multimedia features also include an 8.1-megapixel camera, which we would take any way over the 3.2- or 5-megapixel cams offered by some of its contemporaries. Moreover, it sports a 2.2-megapixel secondary camera that's perched right above its display.
A certain unsatisfied buyer gave the Z2 a 1-star rating, mentioning that the unit he got stopped working after a little over a month, while another buyer said that while it works great, it's a little too pricey for its specs -- it went for $450 when we were checking it out. Nonetheless, its 17 percent 1-star review ratio was still within the acceptable range for tablets as of this write-up.
So, with the help of our automated review crawler, which sampled a grand total of 28983 reviews for HDMI tablets, we can confidently concluded that the Sony Xperia Z2 is Alphachooser's best HDMI tablet computer 2019 (Learn how we rank items), and we say that with a 99 confidence level (More on confidence levels).

RCA 10 Viking Pro HDMI Tablet
RCA's 10 Viking Pro is a 2-in-1 HDMI tablet whose biggest selling points, at least according to most of the 1590 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 4-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 28983 reviews for HDMI tablets, for a verdict, the RCA 10 Viking Pro winds up as one of the top 10 HDMI tablets out there today, being an Alphachooser good choice.

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.
|Average rating: (72%) (435 reviews over 2 sources)|
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.

More HDMI tablet computers, sorted by the latest model first:
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: (66%) (494 reviews over 3 sources)|
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.
|Average rating: (48%) (9 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.
|Average rating: (58%) (70 reviews over 2 sources)|
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 28983 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.

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.
|Average rating: (52%) (15 reviews)|
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 RCA Cambio 10.1 is an HDMI tablet computer that probably takes its name after the Spanish word cambio, which literally means change, seeing that it comes with a detachable keyboard for an extra layer of productivity. It is loaded with 32GB of internal memory, which does not sound that competitive, coming from a 2-in-1 tablet, and it runs on a quad-core Intel Atom Z8350 processor that peaks at 1.92GHz on turbo speed (Its standard clock rate is 1.44GHz). As its name suggests, it touts a 10.1-inch inch display sitting on a rather typical 1280 x 800 resolution and it comes preloaded with Windows 10.
Based on its reviews, this (rating temporarily unavailable)-star unit's HDMI output sounds more promising that those of a few others on this AlphaChooser list. It also gained some praise for its 2-in-1 concept, with one happy buyer saying that it is perfect for those who actually want a laptop but do not have much money to spend, although some unsatisfied users argue that it is pretty hard to work on while it sits on your lap, since its keyboard pops off quite easily. As for power, one user observed that its battery drains pretty fast, but that it also powers back up quickly, adding that it just about stays awake for a full day's worth of classes. A couple of isolated complaints about the Cambio 10.1 involve users who say that it is awkwardly slow, but a good number of other users attest that it pretty much holds up for the endless gaming and multimedia of tech-savvy teenagers.
So, according to our review-crawling algorithm, which aggregated a grand total of 28983 reviews for HDMI tablet computers, the RCA Cambio 10.1 is a nice 2-in-1 tablet computer with an HDMI port, but when it comes to overall user reviews, it shies of the ones dominating this AlphaChooser list.
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.
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.
10.1-inch Windows 8.1 tablet designed for educators and students (though we're yet to see if it actually has classroom-friendly features) with an optional keyboard dock and Wacom stylus support.
The EE G1 comes pre-installed with HP's School Pack software and other learning tools for teachers and students.
10-inch Windows 8.1 tablet that packs a respectable, but not impressive, laptop features in a slim aluminum unibody.
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...
Intel-backed 8.4-inch Android tablet with an 8-megapixel depth-manipulating camera, featuring Intel's RealSense imaging technology, and a 2K (2560 x 1600) resolution OLED display in an anodized aluminum body.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Lumia 2520 boasts 4G LTE connectivity claiming up to a 150mbps maximum download speed...
An affordable large screen tablet equipped with a sub-HD 10-inch display powered by a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, an 8GB internal storage, but sadly, a smaller 4000mAh battery that keeps it behind the competition.
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 28983 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.
A 9.7-inch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS tablet powered by a 1.2GHz CPU with 1GB RAM, and a surprising 8,000mAh Lithium-polymer battery that unexpectedly offers six hours of stand-by time only.
