The best tablets are those tablets that usually offer powerful hardware platforms and a navigation autonomy of at least 7 hours. The main features of high-performance tablets are storage capacity, screen quality and processing power. On the Romanian market there are a multitude of categories, models, brands and prices, some with similar specifications, so the decision to buy a tablet can become quite difficult.
For starters, it's important to decide on the usefulness of your tablet. For those who are looking for a graphics tablet, they should know that there are two models on the market: with display and without display. The non-display tablet is cheaper, and the connection is made through a USB cable to the laptop / computer so that you can see on its screen the drawing you made with the special pen. The model is recommended for those who already have experience with a tablet of this kind. The one with display has a higher purchase cost and is recommended for beginners, because it is easier to use. In this case, it is no longer necessary to connect to a computer, because the drawing appears directly on the tablet screen.
In the case of "classic" tablets, there are several features that you should take into account: the processor, along with the RAM, which will tell you how well the tablet will respond to requests, the diagonal of the display, the operating system and, of course, the price. For this reason, our publishers have selected models from each category of interest, so that you can choose the best tablet.
The display of this model is of the Retina type and has a diagonal of 10.5 inches, one of the most generous of all the tablets that Apple has released. The screen is slightly matte, which allows you to use the Apple Pen without any problems. Also, the color palette is quite generous, which allows a visualization in shades and vivid details of images, games and videos. In addition to the color palette, we also add anti-reflective coating, high brightness and True Tone technology (automatically adjusts the white balance according to the brightness of the room), which contributes to the quality of the viewing experience.
Although the tablet's cameras are 8 MP (primary) and 7 MP (secondary), respectively, you'll be able to take HD (1080p) photos and videos thanks to artificial intelligence. In addition, you can enjoy other functions: scan, sign and send documents or create different experiences with augmented reality.
The operating system (iOS, model A12), together with the A12 Bionic chip, equipped with Neural Engine, offers a pleasant experience to users, given that only a few simple gestures you can be convinced of its power. You can create a 3D project or edit a video without encountering errors or long wait times.
Security has always been a strong point of the Apple brand. iPad Air 3 has the Touch ID function (Home button sensor) that you can use both to unlock your tablet and to shop online safely. Also, all important files on your tablet will be stored in iCloud.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (model 2019), with Android operating system, is the ideal device for those who are used to spending their free time watching series and movies, due to the fairly large diagonal of 10.1 inches.
The tablet has a TFT display with a diagonal of 10.1 inches to which is added the resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. Along with the Wuxga display, which offers a color reproduction close to reality, and the brightness level of the screen, which is optimized depending on how bright the room you are in, the device offers you complete experiences of watching your favorite series. Dual speakers and three-dimensional surround sound also contribute to these experiences.
The Exynos 7904 processor, with 8 cores, 2 GB RAM and 32 GB storage capacity (which you can expand by up to 512 GB with a microSD card), gives power to the tablet and makes it one of the top performing models on the market.
Galaxy Tab A (2019) is also suitable for children thanks to Kids Home technology. This virtual space allows you to monitor both the games and applications that your child uses and the time he spends on the tablet. Just access Kids Home from the tablet menu.
What we liked is the battery life. With the 6150 mAh, the device can be used for more than a day without having to charge it. The tablet comes "equipped" with Android 9.0 (Pie) from the factory.
Galaxy Tab S6 , as I said, has a Super AMOLED display with a diagonal of 10.5 inches, which has a resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels. We find the same type of display on both the Galaxy Tab S4 and the Galaxy Tab S5e . The screen features vibrant, vivid colors with a strong contrast, which gives you pleasant experiences when watching videos or reading.
This model comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage capacity. The good part is that you can expand the storage space up to 1 TB with a microSD.
The device comes equipped with an S Pen, which can prove to be very useful. For example, if you're watching a video clip and want to take notes, you don't have to pause. You can write while watching the video with the S Pen and the pre-installed Samsung Notes application. The important thing is that this pencil is charged wirelessly, only it must be placed on the magnetic side behind the tablet. Basically, this tablet with an integrated pencil can successfully replace a graphics tablet. The S Pen allows you to control various applications even from a distance of 10 meters with the push of a button.
The cameras, located on the back of the tablet, are 13 MP and 5 MP, respectively. They have features like Smart AI and Ultra Wide that help you take professional photos. In addition, if you are passionate about video editing, you can use Adobe Premiere Rush.
CAT T20 Rugged is one of the most durable 8-inch tablets on the market. The device can withstand even falls from a distance of 1.8 meters and can be used underwater, being safe for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter.
Resistance seems to be the strength of this model. Made of polycarbonate and with all four corners protected by a very hard rubber, the tablet manages to cope with brio and the harshest shocks. In this way, it is suitable even at work if you work in construction, for example, where there is always the risk of dropping or scratching the device. IP 67 certification certifies that the tablet is underwater resistant.
CAT T20 Rugged is equipped with an Intel Atom Quad-Core processor, with which the operating system (Windows 10) works perfectly, without interruptions. The processor comes with only 2 GB of RAM, a value that is not suitable for more complex applications. In the case of storage capacity we are talking about 64 GB, a value that can be expanded by up to 128 GB with a microSD card.
The screen has a diagonal of 8 inches, enough for those who are not used to watching movies or series on the tablet. A disadvantage is the resolution of 800 x 1280, which does not offer the most pleasant viewing of images.
The battery capacity is 6000 mAh, which means that a charge lasts even more than a day in conditions of heavy use. Being a tablet suitable for the field of construction, architecture, etc. the wireless charging function that this tablet, unfortunately, does not have would have been welcome.
Huawei MediaPad T3 10 is the perfect tablet model if you have a low purchase budget. With a diagonal of 9.6 inches, a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and a good hardware configuration, the tablet is able to meet all your expectations.
The most important part of the device – the processor – is Quad-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 MSM8917 version, with a frequency of 1.4 GHz. Along with the four Cortex A53 cores and the Adreno 308 video card, the tablet manages to offer a good response rate, without long waiting times or interruptions. The excellent playback of videos, games and applications is also due to the 2 GB RAM memory to which you can also add a microSD card, up to 128 GB.
This version comes with Android 7.0 (Nougat) from the factory to which is added an EMUI 5.1 graphical interface. Of course, both the operating system and the graphical interface benefit from updates, so you will be up to date with both versions.
In terms of connectivity, we list Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi (802.11 a / b / g / n), a 3.5 mm Jack port and a MicroUSB 2.0, which gives you the ability to connect third-party devices. Among the most important functions are GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS, all of which are location technologies that can help you maintain security on your tablet.
The two cameras are not the strengths of the tablet. The main camera has 5 MP, and a plus would be, in this case, the autofocus function. The secondary camera (selfie) has only 2 MP, the pictures not being the most successful or clear.
Canon Powershot SX70 HS can be considered an all-in-one bridge camera because it features top technologies such as 65x optical zoom (stabilized), which is the equivalent of a focal length of 21 – 1365 millimeters
Wacom Intuos S Bluetooth is one of the most sought after graphics tablets because it is very easy to set up and, in addition, gives you the opportunity to download and use two unique creative applications for free ( the M model has all three applications ).
This graphics tablet model is non-display, and the connection is made by cable (L-shape plug). It comes with a high-precision pen with which you can draw on the active surface of the device (which has a size of 152 x 95 millimeters and a resolution of 2540 lpi). What you draw will appear directly on the screen of the computer / laptop to which you have connected the tablet. The pen has a pressure level of 4096 (4k), so you will have excellent control and accuracy.
With the help of electromagnetic resonance (EMR) technology, the pen (which is not equipped with a battery) will be at your disposal for as long as you need to draw. At the same time, the light weight and ergonomic design give you comfort while using it, a feeling you feel even after a few hours of work.
What we found interesting is that this pen allows you to choose the style you want to draw with. The accessory has several Flex and Felt shapes that give you the freedom to draw your projects exactly as you thought. In addition, the pen features four ExpressKeys tablets and two buttons, which help you customize your creative style.
