What is the best tablet ?
It’s a difficult process choosing the best tablet among this large number of tablets introduced to the market everyday. Below is a list of 10 tablets we believe to be the best this year. We took into account multiple elements including performance, battery life, screen quality and more.
We would like to know your opinion about this list, and if you think of any other tablet that should have been here, please leave us a comment below.
10) Huawei MateBook
Huawei’s first Windows 10 device is a well-designed 2-in-1 that rivals the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and iPad Pro in places. It’s a promising, yet pricey, first 2-in-1 from the Chinese company, managing to feel fresh despite arriving late to the party.
9) Dell Venue 8 7000
A tablet that takes photography seriously
The Dell Venue 8 7000 is remarkably thin and lightweight with a comfortable feel. The Intel RealSense depth-sensing camera is an innovative feature and the preloaded Dell Gallery efficiently works as a central hub for photos. Its storage capacity expands up to 512GB via microSD card slot and it has a long-lasting battery.
8) Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
A small and skinny tablet with a supreme screen
The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S was unvieled at the very start of 2016 and boasts a great screen, solid build and Windows 10 – but you can’t buy it just yet. It’s an odd device, but one that works better than we expected it to. The keyboard dock isn’t great, with a cramped mouse and keys which aren’t the easiest to type on – but over all Samsung’s made a solid Windows slate.
7) Apple iPad Air 2
Apple’s classic tablet
When Apple introduced the 9.7-inch iPad Pro on March 21, 2016, it seized the mantle of best iPad ever.
Until the iPad Pro 9.7, this was the best tablet in the world. Even though it has been replaced by Apple, it’s still a brilliant tablet that has further raised the bar for the rest of the competition in terms of build quality, features and performance. Apple’s range of tablet-optimised apps and a slick user interface makes the iPad Air 2 extremely versatile while also being incredibly easy, and enjoyable, to use.
This smaller sibling of the original iPad Pro brings to the table a marvelous combination of form factor perfection and cutting-edge specs.
6) Google Nexus 9
A perfect Android tablet
Originally a rather expensive Google-branded tablet, the Nexus 9 has now dropped so much in price it’s the best value tablet out there. There’s a whole load of power, stock Android and a high resolution screen making it a great tablet at a very affordable price.
The Nexus 9 is a pure Android slate that receives consistent OS updates, thanks to being a Google-branded tablet. It’s not the slimmest or lightest model around, but it is one of the fastest.
5) Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet
The best tablet you have never heard of
The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is the best tablet for PS4 owners as it allows you to stream games from your console direct to the tablet when you’re in another room of your house. Link up your PS4 controller to the Z4 Tablet and you’ll be gaming in bed, in the kitchen and on the toilet. The included keyboard dock in the box also makes for a great stand.
The Sony Xperia Z4 is a rare, waterproof tablet with high-end specs and a super-skinny build. Sony isn’t known for tablets, but its Xperia Z4 is one of its best kept secrets.
4) Samsung Galaxy Tab S2
A small tablet with a supreme screen
Thanks to its spectacular screen and lightweight build, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a great Android tablet for everyday use at home or on the go.
There are plenty of reasons to invest in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 – especially if you’re after a top Android tablet. This is the best tablet that Samsung has ever produced – it’s both reading and web surfing-friendly and you can pick it up in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants. Almost impossibly thin, pumped full of power and with a slicker interface it gives the iPad Air 2 a real run for its money.
3) Microsoft Surface Pro 4
The king of PC tablets
Can a tablet really replace your laptop or home PC? That’s still up for debate, but the best tablet trying to make that happen is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 – and it does a fine job with the full blown version of Windows 10, an integrated kickstand and optional keyboard attachment. Great for for creative professionals, students and everyday folks alike.
After three generations of pitching “a tablet that can replace your laptop” — with mixed success — the formula has finally clicked. Looking at the finely polished Pro 4, it’s worth remembering the. Debuting in 2012, Microsoft’s line of tablets were, if not outright mocked.
2) Google Pixel C
The best tablet for Android
The Pixel C has it all: a fantastic display, heaps of power and a premium design. Plus, for those willing to splash the cash, the keyboard is a great accessory. It’s not quite a laptop replacement, but for those in the market for a premium Android tablet – look no further.
The Google Pixel C has a slim, compact aluminum build that feels sturdy. Its optional Bluetooth keyboard is equally solid and doubles as the tablet’s cover and it has a powerful, long-running battery. The tablet runs the latest version of Android and its performance is lightning fast. The screen is sharp, bright and colorful, and gaming graphics look stellar.
1) Apple iPad Pro 9.7
The best tablet that brings power to portability
By combining the Air 2’s form factor with the Pro’s productivity and creativity skills (plus a few features that aren’t even on the big version), Apple has actually produced the ultimate iPad.
While there are plenty of brilliant Android tablets around at the moment, the new iPad offers a lot of the power of the larger iPad Pro, along with the Smart Keyboard and Pencil support, but brings it in a much more bag-and-palm friendly size. And those four speakers are just brilliant too!
