The best tablets you can buy

Buying a tablet is not a unique experience – it’s pretty much the same as buying a smartphone.

Key considerations are going to include display size, ecosystem (operating system) and battery life, and to a lesser extent processing power (speed). A vibrant display, access to a quality app marketplace, solid battery life and snappy performance can all be found in one device, but with so many tablets on the market finding one which ticks all the right boxes can be difficult.

Which is why we are here. Below, we have listed the best tablets you can buy and we will be keeping this list updated throughout the year to keep it current. So without further ado, let’s jump into the tablet market and take a look at the best tablets you can buy:

Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet

The Dell Venue 8 7000 is a solid 8.4″ Android tablet

Not long ago if I was asked what Android tablet somebody should buy, my answer would’ve been:

  1. The Sony Xperia Tablet Compact, but if you can’t afford that then;
  2. The Google Nexus 9 will fulfill your every need.

I even included these two devices in my best tablets you can buy post. But another tablet is worth considering if you want to venture away from the norm- the Dell Venue 8 7000, which I’ll be honest about and say that I hadn’t played with up until one week ago.

iPad Air 3 features and release date

iPad Air 3 release date and predicted features

Next year the iPad Air 3 will be launched and with it Apple will be hoping to get lots of people new to tablets spending their hard-earned cash and existing iPad customers to trade up. But with regard to the latter, it’s going to be extra-hard for Apple to achieve this because the iPad Air 2 is just so damn good. There’s literally nothing that I’d change about it and I haven’t heard a bad word from any owners that I know – aside from first adopter issues that were solved ages ago.

So the iPad Air 3 needs to be special. No pressure then, Apple.

Let’s take a look at the potential release date for the iPad Air 3 and what features this much-awaited tablet might have based on the rumours that are circulating the web.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact has superb battery life

If you are looking for a new tablet computer, battery life should be the top of your list.

Why? Because when it comes down to it, a tablet computer only has a stunning display and a super-fast processor when it’s on. A tablet that can’t get you through what you’re trying to do is, quite simply, a hunk of useless glass and metal/ plastic and you’re not going to be happy with it in the long-term.

Which brings me on to the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet.

Sony is on a roll with their latest Xperia smartphones – the Z3 and Z3 Compact – which both boast class-leading battery life (two days use is well documented). The new Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet is following in the same suit, bloing away all other Android-powered tablets in battery tests.

Google Nexus 9

This simple trick will charge your tablet way, way faster

Tablet computers generally have good battery life. Unless you’re using your device for hours on end, a tablet such as the Google Nexus 9 or Apple iPad will get you through a full day no problem.

But what about when you want to charge your tablet?

You’ll know the feeling – you’re eager to play on your tablet but you forgot to put it on charge the night before. Or, you only have 10 minutes to spare until you need to leave the house and you don’t want to have to stand by the wall to update your Facebook page, check the latest news or play the latest addictive game you downloaded.
