Best tablets of 2018

In this comparison we rank the best tablets of 2018 in their own categories; a specific tablet for drawing, gaming, reading, or a bit of a “throwaway” tablet for kids!


Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch
Best all-in-one tablet

Available at: Amazon

If you don’t care about the cost and you are looking for the best combination of performance, usability, design and screen, then the Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch is for you. It is currently the best for those who are looking for a tablet that can do everything. The screen quality is absolutely stunning, the design looks clean and nice, it’s fast since it’s filled with powerful components, and it has a very long battery life.

It can also be a laptop replacer, depending on what you are going to do with it. The 10.5-inch screen size is large enough for work, entertainment and great for just normal web browsing. You can also buy an attachable keyboard for it. This tablet is running iOS, love or hate it, it still is an incredibly fast and fluid operating system.

As for specs, iPad Pro 10.5 has a 1668×2240 display, 12MP camera with 2160p@30fps video recording, fingerprint reader, SIM card slot, 4GB RAM and a huge 8134mAh battery.


Samsung Galaxy Tab S3
Best Android tablet

Available at: Amazon

If you’re not a fan of iOS and you want a quality Android tablet, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 might be perfect for you. The price tag is still above average, so if can’t afford this tablet, keep going lower on this list.

The Galaxy Tab S3 has a 9.7-inch 2048×1536 display, 6,000mAh battery, Qualcomm 2.15GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and it is running Android 7.

So overall, this tablet is a beast with an amazing screen quality. The 2048×1536 resolution is better than what most laptops have, and since the display is 9.7 inches, the amount of pixels per inch is insane. It is great for gaming, watching movies and videos, normal web surfing and even drawing art. The battery is 6,000mAh, so it should last for around 12 hours, depending on what you’re doing with it.


Dragon Touch X10 10.6-inch
Budget performance

Available at: Amazon

If you’re shopping with a lower budget and you still need a powerful tablet, then the Dragon Touch X10 is a great choice for you. They are a little known brand, which is the reason they are selling their tablet for such a low price; they need to build reputation.

The screen size of this tablet is 10.6 inches, and inside it is an Octa-Core CPU (8X Cortex A7), 1366×768 IPS-display, WiFi, Bluetooth, 5 MP camera and expandable storage. Even though the performance is good, what makes this tablet cheaper is the fact that it’s using a 1366×768 screen, which is a bit low resolution for the 10.6-inch screen. Also, the 5 MP camera is most likely a joke compared to your smartphone camera.

If you’re looking for a gaming tablet and you can’t afford the previous tablets on this comparison, this is a great choice for you.


Fire 7 Tablet
Best tablet for kids

Available at: Amazon

It’s cheap, durable and not too big. The Fire 7 Tablet is a perfect choice for kids! Its 7-inch display isn’t too big in small hands and the price point is so low, that even if your kid breaks it, you won’t lose your night sleeps.

The screen is a 1024×600 IPS-display, which isn’t bad for a 7″ device. With the 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and up to 8 hours of battery life, the Fire 7 tablet is great for watching YouTube videos, movies and gaming. It does run most games smoothly and since it can have up to 256GB of expendable storage, you won’t be running out of space at any time soon.

It doesn’t have to be for kids though – this tablet is great for reading, traveling and just web browsing on the bed.

Kindle Paperwhite
Best tablet for reading

Available at: Amazon

“Why pay for a tablet for reading?” you might think. When I saw a Kindle for the first time with my own eyes, I realized how cool it was. There’s no sun glare, so you can read even in bright sunlight without any reflections. The battery lasts weeks and the built-in light adjusts itself automatically in dark rooms and in complete sunshine. You can also buy Prime to read books for free with unlimited access!

It does have touchscreen, but you don’t have to constantly be wiping it with your fingers to turn pages or scroll down; the tablet can automatically do the scrolling for you. You can adjust the scrolling speed for your own liking, and then the tablet will just keep scrolling and you can keep reading without touching the screen.
