So after covering the Android smartphones, we are moving our attention towards the tablets. This year we have seen a lot of amazing tablets from different companies, Sony, Samsung and Google basically ruled the market with their amazing tablets, not to forget the impressive entry by Nvidia, who most of the people only know for providing ground breaking graphic cards. Oh, not to forget, there is a tablet from Nexus there too in the list to sweeten up the deal.
Due to a lot of amazing tablets in the market, we are keeping our choice limited, this mainly because we can’t squeeze all of them in one post and it is better to have a top 5 instead of cluttering everything. All views are personal and are not being inflicted upon anyone. Without further ado, let’s take a look at all the Android tablets that made it to our list.
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet
Sony might be looking at a bleak future with their mobile division but that doesn’t stop the company from launching products back to back. Earlier this year, the company came up with gorgeous looking Xperia Z4 Tablet with top of the line looks as well as specs. Oh, the tablet also had IP certification against water and dust. The tablet is a big, beautiful slab of glass with 2560 x 1600 resolution, a Snapdragon 810, 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of expandable storage. Yes, this beauty comes at a price but for those who are looking to buy something significant, and powerful, the Xperia Z4 Tablet is really an amazing device.
Google Nexus 9
Google Nexus 9 is an other impressive device in our list, it is sleek, elegant and it runs the beautiful stock version of Android. The device has been updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will be getting the latest updates for the next 2 years. On first glance, the tablet might not look all that impressive but Nexus 9 packs powerful specs and the addition of stock Android ensures that you get a hassle free experience regardless of how heavy of a user you are. Do keep in mind that if you plan on expanding the storage on this device, it isn’t possible since this is a Nexus device and they come with non-expandable storage options. However, there will be 32 gigs of on-board storage for your needs.
Nvidia Shield Tablet
Almost all of us know Nvidia for being the big, green monster providing monster level graphic cards, but how many of you knew about Nvidia’s Shield Tablet. Yes, the tablet is amazing enough to score a spot in our list. It’s one of the most performance centred devices that come with an amazing Tegra K1 processor and an impressive set of specs, it has an 8 inch screen with full HD resolution and 2 gigs of RAM. The TegraZone portal is filled with Android games that are specifically optimised for Nvidia’s Tegra processor. The build quality and design are 2 more factors that are really impressive.
Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
Why two tablets from Sony you ask? Well, the Xperia Z4 might be an amazing tablet, it’s nowhere near compact, that is the sole reason this particular variant has been added in our list. Comparatively, it’s somewhat like the Xperia Z3 with more battery and a slightly higher resolution. The Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is the perfect device for everyone who is looking for a gorgeous looking device with decent specs and a compact size. It won’t break any barriers but it’ll get the job done.
Dell Venue 8 7000
Not a lot of people know Dell for being a computer manufacturer, but the company does offer some nice Android tablets too. The one we are talking about is Dell Venue 8 7000, that’s a rather long name to begin with but one thing’s for sure, the device is rather promising. It comes with an 8.4-inch OLED screen that has the resolution of 2560 x 1600, there is a powerful 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 2 gigs RAM and a nice set of cameras. In short, the device is capable and powerful enough for those who want nothing but sheer performance.
2016 fast approaches us, we will be seeing a lot of new Android devices. However, the listed tablets are our personal favourites from this year. All in all, they perform good, they look good and they don’t cause a hole in your pocket. For all things Android, stay tuned.
