Tablet

What is a Tablet?

A tablet is similar to a laptop, but with a few important differences. For example, tablets are usually lighter and more portable than laptops, but they offer less storage and fewer connection ports.

Another important distinction is that most tablets do not include a keyboard; instead, they have a touch-sensitive screen, which means you’ll use your fingers to interact with the display and type on a virtual keyboard. It might be easiest to think of tablets as just a larger version of a smartphone; with the exception of phone calls, tablets work basically the same way as most modern smartphones.

Best Tablet | Buying Guide : Things to consider while buying a Tablet

Whether you’re thinking about buying your first tablet or just upgrading from an older model, purchasing a new tablet can feel overwhelming. With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to know if you’re getting the right device for the right price.

That’s why we’ve created this page: to guide you through the process of buying a tablet with as little stress as possible.

Screen size

Tablets are available in different sizes and are divided into three basic categories:

  • Small: 7-9 inches
  • Medium: 9-11 inches
  • Large: 12 inches or larger

Generally speaking, the larger the screen size, the more expensive the device. Tablets with larger screens also tend to be more powerful, but they’re also heavier than smaller tablets. The screen size you choose will likely be a matter of personal preference, but it should also be influenced by how you plan to use the device.

Entertainment or productivity?

Even though smaller tablets aren’t as powerful as regular laptops, their compact size makes them good for simple tasks, like checking your email, browsing online, playing games, and streaming online videos. However, if you want your tablet to replace your laptop for tasks like creating long documents or editing photos, you may need the extra screen space and processing power of a larger tablet.

Apps

Another important difference between tablets and regular computers is that most tablets use a mobile operating system, like iOS or Android. This means tablets can’t run desktop software you might already own for a Windows PC or Mac computer.

Convertible or Stand-Alone Tablet?

When it comes to tablets, you have a choice — do you go with a standard tablet or do you go with a “convertible” tablet?

Stand-alone tablets take the form of oversize smartphones: They consist of one large touch screen, a handful of buttons on the case, a charging connector and little else. They usually weigh between 1 and 2 pounds and are typically less than half an inch thick, so they’re supercompact and portable. You control them using the touch screen, but you can usually pair them with a Bluetooth keyboard.

Convertible devices try to combine the flexibility of the PC with the convenience of a tablet. These 2-in-1 devices either come with a detachable keyboard or they’re really just a full-size laptop that features a touch screen.

RAM (Memory)

RAM isn’t quite as big a selling point on tablets because of how iOS and Android manage memory. Generally speaking, however, the more you spend, the more RAM you’ll get, and on most tablets, you can expect anywhere between 1GB and 4GB of memory.

Storage and Expandability

Stand-alone tablets typically come with 8 or 16GB of storage on the low end, and up to 128GB on the high end. Convertible Windows tablets often have storage capacities more in line with typical notebooks, so it isn’t unusual to find one with 256GB of storage or more. Some tablets include SD card readers that allow you to expand your device’s storage capacity. Unless you don’t use your tablet much, you may find 8 or 16 GB to be a little too constraining for your needs, so you’ll probably want to pay a little more and get at least 32GB of storage space — or look for one with an onboard SD card slot.

NATURE OF USE

You own the latest smartphone and a powerful machine, but you still want a tablet. Before zeroing in on one, you need to first determine what you will use it for? Convenient to use and carry, some people prefer to use it on the move, to stay abreast of the latest happenings, emails and other stuff. For a few, it is mostly an entertainment device where they can play games, download and experience apps and play movies. Some pair it with Bluetooth keyboard and use it as a primary work machine (yes, tablets are that powerful too). Kids too are fascinated with tabs, and parents are also investing in one as an additional education tool for their kids.

OPERATING SYSTEM

It all started with Apple’s iPad, followed by Android. But now Windows tablets too are emerging in this space. The Apple iPad runs on iOS platform, which is closed and you cannot do much of tweaking on your own. Apps can be downloaded from the Apple App Store only. On the other hand, Android tablets are built on open source platform and is open to customisations by the manufacturer as well as the user.

CONNECTIVITY

Usually, all tablets come with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, which are good enough to be used in a Wi-Fi-enabled zone. Tabs also come with cellular support, which means you can insert a SIM card and use Internet service. Some tabs even allow calling. The latter comes handy if you plan to browse the web, download emails, etc., on the move, where you are unlikely to have a Wi-Fi network. But the price of these tabs is usually higher. And not every company has Wi-Fi tablet or Wi-Fi+cellular tab.

WEIGHT

Tablets are used on the move and should not weigh much. Depending upon the display, the weight does vary, but it should not be heavy because if you are holding it for longer duration, your hand is likely to get tired.
