Apple iPad to Galaxy Tab S6: Top tablets you can go for
Looking for a new tablet? Here's a list.
In the technology-driven digital era, smart and portable gadgets give momentum to your business and social life. One of such gadgets is a tablet. From handling official projects to attending virtual classes to watching movies, tablets have multidimensional utilities. If you are planning to buy one, then explore the following.
Apple iPad 10.2-inch
When it comes to an iPad, expectations already go high. Let us start with the screen. It carries a bigger 10.2-inch Retina display so that you get ample space for browsing. Navigation is smooth on the touch screen. The combination of 32GB storage, A10 Fusion chip with 64-bit architecture and M10 coprocessor delivers a great performance. Using an Apple Pencil, you can take notes or explore your creative zest by creating art.
The good part is the iPad is compatible with Bluetooth keyboards. The most selling factor of the device is its battery that lasts 3-4 days on normal usage after a full charge. Talking about the camera, it has an 8MP back camera with HDR that shoots 1080p HD video. However, the disappointing thing is the 1.2MP front camera which is not sufficient for taking good selfies or video calling. To connect with the internet, the iPad supports fast Wi-Fi and 4G LTE.
Apple iPad Mini
Reviewing Apple devices means exploring innovations. iPad Mini boasts of a 7.9-inch Retina display with True Tone, which is quite good. Talking about hardware, the device carries 64GB storage, A12 Bionic Chip with 64-bit architecture, Neural Engine and M12 coprocessor. Hence, it provides superb performance. The battery is also pretty good, offering you 7-8 hours backup even after intense usage. In this product as well, the camera is not up to the mark. It has Wi-Fi compatibility and supports Apple Pencil.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Samsung gives a tough fight to Apple with the Galaxy Tab S6. It comes with a 10.5-inch WQXGA Super AMOLED display. WQXGA means a resolution of 2560 X 1600. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor, 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory to deliver an excellent performance. The tablet shows no lag even if you use multiple apps simultaneously. Further, Neural Processing Power lets you enjoy an exceptional gaming feat. The Dolby Atmos Quad speakers add a cherry on the cake. The box includes an S Pen so that you can note down your ideas. On the camera front, Galaxy Tab S6 beats iPad and iPad Mini by high margins. The tablet carries a 13MP + 5MP dual primary camera with HDR that captures 4K video. It also has an 8MP selfie camera. The battery is quite decent. It supports 4G LTE. Now, the things not so impressive about the device are the fingerprint sensor and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Huawei MediaPad T5
If you want to go lighter on budget, then MediaPad T5 from Huawei could be a great deal. It has a 10.1-inch Full HD display. The main specifications include 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage (expandable up to 256GB) and 2.36 GHz Kirin 659 octa-core processor. It would have been great if Huawei offered 4GB RAM. But still, performance is good with no such lagging issues. Also, the battery life is quite good. The tablet is laced with dual speakers that offer 360-degree surround sound. Further, Children's Corner 2.0 is a specialised feature offering fun and learning games for kids. The tablet carries a sleek and stylish metal design. However, the device is heavier due to metallic design.
