Our lives, our world, our social contacts-anything and everything is connected with the virtual world. Although we had been using laptops and cellphones for quite a long time, we still have our issues, say for example we can’t use laptop all the time-it’s heavy and carrying it everywhere is not feasible and our oh-so-dear-smartphones can never have full-fledged laptop features,now do they? So what is it that can work as both, your smartphone and laptop and costs the same? Well, it’s The Tablet. If you don’t already own one or if you do,but want to have a new one, you should check out this list of top ten tablets. We are sure, you will find out the one that best suits your requirement.Good Luck.
1. Apple IPAD Air:
As always, Apple never fails to impress us, Apple iPAD Air tops the list of best tablets with its fast processor, weight of just one pound and a long battery that last for a day or two! You can have a pleasurable experience of reading with its clear screen and enjoy best video quality because of the vivid coloured display. The huge collection of games and apps gives you one more reason to make it your choice and if this isn’t all, you have variety of accessories to choose from,say for example keyboard and stylus to type in documents, or a stand if you don’t feel like holding it. You can get it for $499 from Apple Store.
2. Apple IPAD Mini With Retina Display:
Well if you are not for 9.7 inches of display, go for iPAD Retina display, it is a lot cheaper than Apple iPad Air but offers all the same features. And yes it’s lighter. Why is it on second number you may ask. Well, it is because of its accessories and the video watching experience( you can’t have a cinema experience on your home screen ,now can you?). But hey, what does it matter, you can still read for endless hours on iPad Mini too. Readers should go for it, it can be bought for $399 from Apple Store.
3. Nexus 7: This Google tablet is for you if you’re tight on budget but still want to go for something that have strong features. It is not new, being in market for a year. Asus Nexus 7 weighs 290g and have 7 inches of screen. Have the best gaming experience with its sharp and clear screen and Play Game apps. With sound powered by Fraunhofer, you can enjoy the best sound quality for your movies and songs. Each member of the family can set for himself a customised personal space on the tablet. The price of this cool tablet starts from $ 299.
4. Microsoft Surface Pro 3:
Okay this is more laptop than a tablet , cuz honestly it’s too big to be a tablet! 12 inch screen(wow, like really how on earth will it be portable). No doubt ,it’s beautiful, sleak and you can watch the best quality video(yes in HD) but it is heavier than other-it weighs a whooping 0.76kg. But whats cool about it is, it can be used as a laptop( attach the keyboard ith it) and a tablet(detach the keyboard and use as touch screen tablet). You can doodle and write all you want and it comes in handy for drawing or reading purpose. But this beauty cost more than $750!
5.Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4:
Galaxy Tab is the ultra thin tablet and its really is so light( actually less than a pound!). It has both, front camera(2.1 MP) and back camera(8 MP) and it offers a beautiful display the brightness of which adjusts automatically with surroundings. You can use internet for good 10 hours on it and it can be used by multiple people ( don’t worry you can keep your private files safe-the finger scanner won’t let anyone open it). And good thing is you can have a parental control so it’s a safe option for your children too. The bad part is, it’s casing, it is made up of plastic, which is a big no no for something that would have looked so chic otherwise. Currently it’s available for $399.99.
6.Dell Venue 8 Pro:
If you want to choose a Window tablet then go for Dell Venue. It doesn’t offer the highest resolution but still the picture quality is good and its faster compare to other Window 8.1 tablets. Unlike iPad and Android tablets, this tablet does not offer a large variety of apps. You can buy it for $ 249.99.
7.Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1(2014):
The tablet does have light feel and vibrant display(with WQXGA resolution) but the software is pretty clumsy. The S Pen technology allows users to draw/write on the screen or even design your own screen by pinning your apps, websites and files.Also the bigger screen means you can simultaneously do multi-tasking on your tab. The leather-like back cover gives the tablet a very classic look. Samsung Galaxy is available in the market for $499.99.
8.Samsung Galaxy Note Pro:
With 30.98cm,4 Million Pixel display you can experience the very best of picture quality. Like Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Note Pro allows multi-tasking, you don’t have to toggle between apps and files,instead you can watch a video and write your email at the same time( this is a blessing for people who love doing loads of things together). As said before tablets are supposed to be comfortable and manageable, but the bigger screen which should be a plus for watching videos/movies can actually be pain in neck as it makes the tablet not portable enough to b carried everywhere. The price of the tablet is between $ 549.99-649.99.
9.Samsung Galaxy Tab 47.0:
This 7 inch screened tablet is good for daily use. The software is not so efficient. What more to expect in $169! Now we have seen Samsung manufacturing phones bigger than this tablet so it’s not understandable for Samsung to make a tablet this small, but yes for casual use it’s good thing to have.
10.Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″:
This smart gadget is good for watching videos and reading books( but that’s what Amazon is all about no?) but other than that it doesn’t have much to offer. The software interface is not swift and we get to access limited apps. The display is 8.9 inches and it weighs 13.2 ounces. You can get it from Amazon for $349.(Note that all the features of Amazon Kindle do not work in Pakistan).
Make your pick and let us know which one do you want to have!
