Despite being handicapped with a Mediatek processor, you can play PUBG Mobile in normal graphic settings.
Now, coming to the flaws. As it was released in 2016, it has an ancient OS, Android 6. FYI, Google is about to launch Android 11 soon. Overall this is one of the best Android tablets within $300.

The device offers smooth performance running PUBG Mobile, but you may get the occasional lags at the highest graphic settings. It is a bit low on internal storage, but you can expand till up to 128GB with a microSD card.

7. Razer Phone – 1st Generation
We simply had to include Razer Phone-1st Generation on the list because it is a gaming beast.
Firstly, because it’s Razer. Secondly, because this is the world’s first gaming mobile device with a display that boasts 120Hz refresh rates! And there’s more.
Dolby Atmos support through front-facing dual speakers ensures zero complains in the sound department. But what steals the show is its 8GB RAM and the 8-core Snapdragon 835 processor. Along with 64GB internal storage, you get a true-blue mobile gaming device.
Razer followed Apple by rejecting the 3.5mm headphone jack that is adored by everyone. As a phone, it is relatively heavier than others and has no resistance to dust or water.
It does not support 60fps, but you can still enjoy the 120Hz refresh rate. Note that the phone stopped receiving updates after Android 8.1 Oreo.
If you are a puritan when it comes to PUBG Mobile, this is yours. For around $700.

It provides smooth gameplay of high-end games like PUBG Mobile with stellar battery performance. The primary complaint of the tablet was its design. Apple didn’t focus on the design and ended up recycling the previous design.
Adding to the woes, it doesn’t support the 2nd generation of Apple Pencil.

It was Microsoft’s 2nd attempt at a liter version. Microsoft Surface Go 2 is a watered-down version of the Surface Pro tablet that does most things right at just $400.
Unfortunately, the makers didn’t focus on the processor. You will notice some lags while playing the PUBG game in higher graphic settings. Fortunately, the battery lasts for almost 10 hours and comes with an attractive rear kickstand that is like an icing on top of its robust design.

PUBG Mobile will need around 1.70 GB of storage. So, you need at least 32GB of internal storage to enjoy it. There are 3 other important things to consider while purchasing the best tablet for PUBG. The first one is to have a bigger screen, preferably 11-inch.
Note that bezels are good for hand-held gaming. Next is having a powerful processor and RAM so that don’t need to limit FPS. Lastly, proper battery backup is a must. If you don’t have the budget to go for the likes of iPad or Surface Pro, you can easily consider the other ones. These are the best tablets to play PUBG and that includes the Razer Phone
The size of the PUBG Mobile game is around 1.69 GB. Therefore it requires a minimum of 3 GB to function. Playing on your phone may not be as exciting as playing on a bigger screen. Samsung is launching Galaxy tab S7 and S7+ supposedly on 21, September 2020. Hopefully, that is a major upgrade over its predecessor and doesn’t cost more.
