How to choose a tablet

There are dozens of different tablets to choose from, and plenty of those are still on sale right now as part of Cyber Week deals. Not sure where to begin? First, consider your budget. There’s something in every price range, so it’s essential to plan accordingly and not overspend. You’ll still get a good deal without having to worry about your bank balance.

Once you’ve done that, check out our best tablets guide for an overview of what’s best for most situations. If you’re specifically looking for a tablet for a youngster, then our best tablets for kids guide will help you out, targeting exactly what’s needed from a tablet for most children.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for the best tablets for small businesses, we can offer advice there, as well as a look at the best Android tablets too.

If you simply want to know what the best overall choice is, we think the Apple iPad (2020) is the best call for the majority of people. It has a gorgeous screen, good battery life, and it’s very easy to use, even if you’re not tech-savvy. If you want an even better Apple tablet, then the Apple iPad Pro is the best of the best, although it’s not cheap. It’s able to multitask without an issue and is even good enough to replace your laptop. Consider the Apple iPad Air too if your budget can stretch a little further than the iPad (2020) but you need a good midrange option.

If you want the smallest iPad out there, then the iPad Mini is a great purchase, and it’s no slouch. We pitted the iPad Mini versus iPad to see who came out on top.

If your heart is set on an Android tablet, there are other good options out there in the sales. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus is good for most users, while the Amazon Fire HD range — including the Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8 — has suitable options if you’re on a budget.

Are some tablet deals too good to be true?

Let’s get real — while you can and will find some genuine deals during Cyber Week, you have to be careful to dodge the bargains that are actually dollar bin-style clear-outs. Some devices simply don’t sell well because they’re of inferior quality or lack needed features, and retailers are eager to use large discounts to clear those particular tablets from their stock. So make sure you research before you buy any tablet during the Cyber Week sales. Read as many reviews as you can, and don’t buy into time-limited deals or low stock alerts. Generally, sticking to big retailers and big brands will help, but keep in mind that even a company like Samsung can release a lemon sometimes. A great tablet can be a wonderful addition to your life, but a bad tablet with performance issues, limited battery life, and a lack of updates can be frustrating. A bit of prior research will go a long way.
