Costing just above $300 in its most basic version (the most expensive one costs $559), this iPad has a very attractive price tag for its features. It has a 9.7″ Retina display and comes with a 64-bit A9 chip that ensures a fluid performance and enough computing power for demanding games and other applications. See More
32GB and 128GB are the only storage options available, with no possibility of expansion (via SD cards, for example). This means there’s a huge gap between the lowest option, which will feel like not enough for lots of people, and the highest one, which has too much space for those same users. A 64GB version would probably be more balanced and the most suitable for the majority of users. See More
This tablet uses a 64-bit A9 chip and 2GB RAM, which ensure fluidity when gaming, watching media, or even doing some light multimedia creation tasks (in GarageBand, for example). Evidently, it doesn’t perform as well as the iPad Pro, but it’s very noticeable that it’s more powerful than the previous iPad Air 2. See More
The 2048x1536 display, with a 264 ppi pixel density, handles content reproduction quite well. Despite missing some importante features, such as True Tone technology or anti-reflective coating, it’s still a good screen that creates a pleasant experience, creating vivid and rich images. However, it’s noticeable that it’s not as good as the displays of the iPad Pro or of the iPad Air 2 from the previous generation. See More
The iPad 2017's battery lasts up to 10 hours (while doing tasks equivalent to regular internet browsing, watching videos or listening to music). It's a lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 8,800 mAh, which represents a great improvement from the iPad Air 2's battery, which only had 7.340 mAh. See More
This Asus tablet offers amazing value. It’s not the most powerful or more premium option on the market, but it’s definitely one the tablets with a more balanced mix of features, power and price. What if offers to users for under $300 is definitely more than enough for most needs. See More
The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is ideal for working on the go, even while commuting or traveling. Its 7800 mAh battery lasts for 16 hours on a full charge, which is more than enough for a workday. When it comes to its size and weight, it’s quite portable, despite not being the most compact (242 x 164 x 5.8 mm) or light (490g) option of its generation. See More
One may decide to go for a more expensive, more premium option capable of better performance, but for the vast majority of users, this Asus tablet is more than enough. Its processing power comes from a 1.8 GHz Qualcomm MSM8956 S650 Hexa Core and 4GB LPDDR3 RAM. When it comes to graphics, it has an Adreno 510 GPU. See More
This tablet’s 9.7 inches screen is really good and capable of high-quality, clear images with striking, bright colors. It has an IPS panel with a 2K resolution of 2048 x 1536. It uses Asus’ VisualMaster and Tru2Life+ technologies: the first one optimizes the display’s configuration according to the content being displayed, and the second one assures vivid colours and high contrast levels. It counts with 178º viewing angles to ensure a precise images from any position. See More
The Galaxy Tab S3 has one of the best displays on the market. It's a Super AMOLED screen with a high resolution - 2048 x 1536, that provides a very sharp image even in direct sunlight and works great for watching videos, gaming, and reading. The HDR technology makes it great for watching films because you can see every small detail, even if the action happens in the dark. See More
While the Galaxy Tab S3 is not as powerful as a typical laptop with comparable price, it has decent specs, a keyboard (sold separately), and a stylus that make it a quite capable workstation. Of course, it won't be able to replace your normal computer completely, but it will suffice to get some work done in a coffee shop. See More
Old micro USB cables will not work with this device, meaning if you lose or break your cable you will need to buy a new one instead of using an old cable you had lying around. If you need to top up your phone away from home, it will be much harder to find a suitable cable initially. See More
The keyboard can also act as a tablet stand, and doubles as a screen protector when not in use. It connects through bluetooth, and attaches to the tablet via magnets. When you aren't using it, just place it on the screen (keys facing in) and magnets will hold it in place, protecting the tablet's screen. While it's closed like this, the tablet will wirelessly charge the keyboard, meaning you don't ever have to worry about the keyboard's battery (it should last up to 3 months even if you never let it charge). It's a bit pricey at $150 extra on top of the tablet, but it's an option you have. See More
Pixel C runs software made entirely by Google - known as Stock Android. This software performs quick, and doesn't include any bloatware. It is also promised to be one of the first to get Android N this fall, as well as the next release next year (and very likely one more major update before support ends). See More
Most tablets have a version of split-screen: a feature which lets you have two apps open at the same time. The Pixel C doesn't have this yet, but it is included in the Android version N developer preview which is expected to release late 2016. See More
