NO 1. 9.7-inch iPad Pro (9.7-inch)
Screen size: 9.7-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 pixels
The best tablet you can buy get is the iPad Pro 9.7 – the smaller screen with powerful innards is the best combination on the market.
While there are plenty of brilliant Android tablets around at the moment, the newest 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. Oh, and those four speakers are just brilliant too!
There’s no Apple iPad Pro 2 release date just yet, or even confirmation that such a tablet exists. You’re safe to buy this one right now.
NO 2. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 (8.0-inch/9.7-inch)
Screen size: 8.0-inch/9.7-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048
There are plenty of reasons to invest in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 – especially if you’re looking to buy one of the best Android tablets. This is the best tablet that Samsung has ever produced – it’s both reading and web surfing-friendly, has a sensational Super AMOLED screen.
You can pick it up for a new low price in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants. Almost impossibly thin, pumped full of power and with a slicker interface it gives the best iPads a real run for its literal money.
We’ve heard whispers of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 release date, but we don’t expect to be able to buy that one until after MWC 2017 this month and we suspect it’ll launch at a obviously higher price, whereas this tablet has been discounted over the last several months.
NO 3. Amazon Fire HD 8
Screen size: 8.0 inch | Resolution: 800 x 1280 pixels (~189 ppi pixel density)
The eight-inch 1280 x 800-pixel HD display of the Amazon Fire is more than good enough to watch the millions of movies and TV shows and read countless books (which are all available through Amazon Prime and other apps such as Netflix and Hulu). Finding movies to watch is a snap, thanks to the 1.3GHz quad-core processor that pairs with 1.5GB of RAM. For many, the display is a sweet spot that helps those who find the seven-inch size too small and the 9.7-inch size too large. Aside from the “sized just right” display, the onboard rear 2-megapixel camera and VGA front-facing camera aren’t terribly impressive, but exist for grabbing photos in a pinch. Camera quality aside, the build of the Fire HD 8 feels far more premium than the price would suggest and Amazon claims its two times more durable than the iPad Mini 4 and at a fraction of the cost.
Tip: If you want to play DVD Blu-ray videos (MP4, MKV, AVI, FLV, MOV, MXF, MTS etc) on Amazon Fire HD 8, you can also use Pavtube Softwares to help you.
NO 4. Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
Screen size: 12-inch | Resolution: 2,160 x 1,400
If you’re looking for a device that does double duty as a tablet and laptop, then the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is for you. The slim (.25 inches) and sleek design comes with a full-size detachable keyboard (and trackpad) that snaps easily into place so you can answer e-mails and catch up on your work even after you leave the office. With an estimated battery life of 10.5 hours, the Galaxy TabPro S runs on Windows 10 and has an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. And if you’re looking to play games on this tablet, you can stream Xbox One games to the 12-inch tablet through the Windows 10 Xbox app.
NO 5. iPad mini 4
Screen size: 7.9-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048
The best 7-inch tablet at the moment is definitely the iPad mini 4. If you like the look of Apple’s iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro, but find them too big, too expensive or both, then you’re in luck. With no official confirmation of an iPad mini 5 yet, the diminutive iPad mini 4 gives you the best of Apple’s tablet world in a form factor that’s not only beautiful, but highly portable.
