Buy one of these tabs and we assure you that you won’t regret

iPads are awesome but you may not be a big fan of iOS and may prefer something Android based. In this article we will tell you about all the best Android tablets that you can buy and get your job done.

But before we get into that, let’s have a quick check on the factors that you should consider before buying any of the latest android tablets in India

Essential features to consider while buying the Best Android Tablets available in the market


The first thing that appears in your imagination when you hear the word “tab” is a smart touchscreen device with a HUGE display. Isn’t it? Yes, a bright and clear display is something that you fancy everytime you buy a tablet for yourself or your loved ones. A touchscreen display that enables glitch free swipe and tap, crystal clear viewing of photos and movies, and strain free reading of texts is something that you should look for.


Tabs are cool but, because they are BIG, they are not easy to carry. From 7-inch to 12-inch, Android tabs come in various sizes and they are relatively heavier than smartphones. Therefore, you must choose wisely. Buy the tab that is easy for you to carry yet is powerful enough to meet your requirements. An ideal tab should be lightweight and not too big to hold if you want to use it on the go.

Operating System/OS

iOS rocks; but Android is people’s favorite. Android is more popular than iOS because, unlike the strict download policies of Apple, it is more flexible and allows people to choose from thousands of free and paid apps from thousands of verified and unverified sources. This feature makes Android tablets more appealing to younger generations. Moreover, Android tablets are comparatively cheaper that iOS devices.


Modern smart devices connect to the internet using 3G, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, or Broadband cable connection. While, using WiFi is still the most stable and reliable way of connecting to the internet, using 3G, or 4G network enables you to work on the go. But before buying a new tablet, make sure that it is 4G enabled because, most mobile network providers are upgrading their network to 4G. Therefore, there is no point in buying a 3G enabled tablet these days.


When it comes to tablets, an iPad is obviously the best thing that your money can buy. But, you may not be willing to spend a huge amount of money on an iPad because, you understand that it is too powerful and too expensive for the kind of tasks you want your tablet to perform. Comparatively, Android tablets are cheaper but powerful enough to do ordinary tasks like emailing, video streaming, playing online games, running apps, and many more.


No; you don’t expect your tablet to have a powerful camera because it is not convenient to use a HUGE tablet just to take some random selfies. But a good quality front camera matters if you need to make a lot of video calls on whatsapp, skype or other messaging apps. Therefore, consider buying a tablet with at least 8MP front camera with autofocus if you have already decided to invest some money in a tablet.


A great look, or a cool display makes no sense if your tablet doesn’t not have sufficient computing power required to do basic tasks like playing games, running apps, streaming and video calling. A good processor is something that any tab requires to serve you without any glitches. If you want to use your tab for high-end tasks like video editing, animation and other heavy stuff, you must make sure that the processor that comes with the tab is capable of handling such applications.


Most users fill their storage space with photos, videos and movies. A 16 GB storage space is something that will let you enjoy the digital world without worry. Seeing the ‘Memory Full’ error very often is not a pleasant experience for most of us. Most tabs come with 8GB and 16GB internal storage. But, if you buy an Android tab that supports expandable memory card slot, your life will be a lot easier. So, buy a tab that has a memory card slot to support up to 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB.

Optional features: Keyboards and Stylii: If you fancy to use your tab as your office PC, or graphic designing tool, consider buying a tab that supports external keyboard, or comes with a stylus. Some high-end tabs come with pressure-sensitive stylus that help you to unleash your imagination as a graphic artist.

But remember,

That when it comes to computing, tablets are fun and easy to use devices best suited to web browsing and apps. Before you buy a tablet, ask yourself why you want to buy one. Are you buying it for social networking, or reading books, or edit images and videos, or replacing your desktop PC with something portable? Make sure that the tablet you are buying is capable enough to meet all the expectations you have from it. Always keep in mind that however, powerful a tablet claims to be, in general, it can never replace your desktop or laptop unless you are ready to pay a premium price.
