Choosing the best tablet for your needs

Posted by ei2Aevai on December 14th, 2020

The tablet phenomenon is far from over. From time to time, new models of various brands emerge: thinner, lighter, faster and more elegant than the old one. Due to the huge diversity of tablets, it is becoming increasingly difficult to determine which one is the most suitable for you and your needs.


One factor in choosing the right tablet is recognizing what you will need it for. If you are going to use it for work or school to view various files, read books, and make reports / presentations, you may want a tablet that is simple and easy to maneuver like the iPad. Of course, an Apple tablet may not always be affordable for everyone, so you can also look for other alternatives, such as Galaxy and other Android tablets. You can also look at the applications that are offered on different operating systems and determine which ones suit your needs.

If you simply want one for entertainment, like games, music, and movies, you may want to get a tablet with a larger storage system to accommodate all the apps and files that you will download or store. Also, you don't want RAM (read-only memory) less than 1GB if you expect to run high-resolution games on your tablet.

Sometimes you just want a web browsing device that isn't as bulky as your laptop. In this case, you can get a tablet with faster web browsing capabilities. There are devices called "Internet tablets" that focus on the use of the Internet, ideally the most efficient for browsing and running applications such as Facebook, Skype, Twitter and the like.


If you're not sure what you'll be using it for, you can try to think of the things that you hope your tablet can do. Apple tablets, for example, do not support flash, and this can present some limitations when browsing the web. Basically, if you want your tablet to have the maximum capacity, you will get the one with the latest processor (since a tablet processor cannot be upgraded). If you hope to be able to customize your tablet to some extent, you will want to get an Android device.

Although it can be said that tablets are close to serving as the best alternatives to desktops and laptops, there are still functions that only a laptop / desktop can provide. One of them is the convenience of a keyboard (there are already tablets that can be transformed into laptops simply by connecting a separate keyboard via USB. Although I think this defeats the entire purpose of portability for tablets). It would be helpful to recognize these limitations so you won't be disappointed when you finally get your device.

There are also tablets that are 3G or 4G capable, which means they have SIM card slots and can double as smartphones. If you like to browse the web through your smartphone, a larger screen could increase the convenience. Also, always keep an eye out for emerging tablet capabilities such as GSP, handwriting recognition, voice command, and more.

Actually, choosing the right tablet for you is not that difficult. You just have to look at the correct references. There are many sites online that provide specifications for various tablets of different brands and operating systems, and where you can compare one tablet to another. Having a tablet, especially one that really suits your needs and meets your expectations, can be quite satisfying once you are using it.
