Ten coolest tablets of 2018
Whether you are a using it for work, play or socialising, there are plenty of factors that influence your decision about picking up a tablet. In the past few years we seen all manner of high-powered tablets being released, and it can sometimes be tricky to find a tablet that’s perfectly suited to your needs. So here’s a quick look at some of the coolest tablets of 2018.
Obviously, Apple’s iPad should be key amongst your considerations. You can pick up an iPad from around £310, and even an entry-level version has the powerful A10 Fusion chip to help you multitask in style.
If you have a little more money to burn, then the 12.9 inch Apple iPad Pro could be a wise investment. At £969, this tablet isn’t cheap, but its impressive screen and surprisingly crisp audio should help you watch movies and stream the latest albums with ease.
For those who are keen to use the Windows operating system, then the Samsung Galaxy Book could be a good move. This will cost you £650 but it has an impressive Core i5 processor to give you top-level performance.
Those with a tight budget might want to check out the Amazon Fire HD 8. This will only set you back £80, and whilst it looks a little unusual, it has enough processing power to cope with games and many more top media applications.
If you are looking for the best Android tablet, then we’d probably recommend splashing out £599 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. This has an impressive 2560 x 1600 display and you even get a free S-Pen too.
We’ve seen plenty of interesting laptop-tablet hybrids, and the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 has to be the pick of the bunch. At £979 it’s not inexpensive and doesn’t include the keyboard, but on the whole, it’s well worth taking a look at.
Huawei have been making some excellent tablets for a while now. Their MediaPad M5 Pro could be their best yet and it’s a great Android device to try. This will cost you £415, but its stylish design and crisp 10.8 display will make watching movies like Creed II all the more immersive.
We should also mention how the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 has also been picking up rave reviews recently. At £239 it’s pretty cheap, but with a hi-res display and a very responsive interface, it should help you overlook the somewhat underwhelming battery life.
Google have made a strong impression on the tablet market with their Pixel C. This great-looking tablet isn’t low-priced, but its 10.2-inch display is one of the best on the scene. Just don’t forget to spend a little extra so that you get the awesome magnetic keyboard.
And finally, if you are looking to get a tablet for little ones with smaller hands, then we’d recommend that you check out the Amazon Fire 8 Kids HD. This has special parental control features, as well as a very durable childproof case to help your children not miss out on the fun of having a tablet.
