As people look for increased mobility and greater convenience with their devices, the tablet computers have greatly evolved to bridge the gap between a laptop and a tablet. While these tablets still have a long way to go before they can fully replace a laptop, there still are a handful of great options to consider when you’re looking for smaller smart devices.
From their screen resolutions and battery lives to their build and performance, we have evaluated the newest tablets in the market to compile a list for you to choose from. So, if you’ve been thinking of buying a tablet lately, make sure you read this to help you decide better!
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3
Released in February this year, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is probably the leading Android tablet available in the markets these days. This top of the line device is the strongest and, by far, the best rival iPad Pro has had since its inception.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is light and powered by a massive 6,000 mAh battery. Operating on Android 7, the device brings you a 32 GB internal storage and 4GB RAM to ensure smooth running. This premium design tablet from Samsung comes with an S-Pen stylus and an excellent HDR-ready display. You can even enjoy the fantastic 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras with stunning picture quality.
When you look at the add-ons, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 keyboard is a costly extra, while the device itself isn’t what we would call “inexpensive”. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for top quality and great value for money without a budget barrier – this is what you should buy!
The iPad Pro 10.5
Apple recently released the iPad Pro 10.5. It is the bigger, better version of the iPad Pro that was released in September 2015. With a whopping 10.5 inch screen and 4GB RAM, the iPad Pro 10.5 is a fantastic option to consider for Apple loyalists. The device does not come with an extendable memory option but is available in 32GB, 256GB, and 512GB internal storage variations.
The device was marketed as an iPad made for the professionals, but the impressive ProMotion screen with its remarkable fluidity can win almost anyone over. That said, one can’t ignore the fact that the product is expensive and still cannot quite be considered as a good enough replacement for a laptop.
However, if the specifications suit your purpose and you don’t mind splurging a little on a fancy new device – we’d say you go for it.
The Asus ZenPad 3S 10
Not many would have expected to find the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 on this list – but trust us when we say that this is one of the finest new additions to the Android tablets family. This strong-built tablet has an iPad-like design and plenty of storage. This tablet operates on Android Marshmallow and gives some of the best Apple tablets a good run for their money with its alternative operating system.
The bright, high resolution display is a definite winner. The decent 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras only add more to its positives. The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 however, comes with a mediocre battery life, which could be a spoiler for many, but it’s still a great option if you’re looking for a large screen for less money.
The Google Pixel C
The Pixel C by Google is a complete package! The tablet comes with a sleek design, great display, and sufficient power. This tablet operates on Android Nougat and has a battery that can last up to 10 hours. With its 10.2 inch screen, a 3GB RAM, and 8MP rear camera, the Pixel C is a premium tablet great for anyone who likes to own stylish accessories.
Its big size contributes to the tablet’s weight – it’s heavy – heavier than all other tablets in the list. Plus, one can’t ignore the fact that this premium tablet comes at a premium price. So, if you’re looking for tablet that doesn’t make you splurge too much cash, the Pixel C is not for you.
