The most important thing you need to know before buying any iPad is that it's the best tablet in its price range by an overwhelming margin. When shopping for an iPad, always consider spending a bit extra for a variant with more storage. It won’t take long before you find the additional expense to be well worth it. Not an Apple person? No worries. We've added our favorite Android tablets, too.
1. Apple iPad 8th Generation
The most recent iteration of the iPad comes with a host of new features that iPad users everywhere will be excited to try out. 10.2 inch Retina display still delivers an exceptional picture quality while the upgraded camera and screen accuracy allow for more creativity.
2. Samsung Galaxy Tablet
With a solid set of features at a reasonable price point, the latest iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Tab A is the best Android tablet for most consumers today. It has a sharp 10-inch display and dual speakers, which are great for watching video on the go. With a midrange Qualcomm chipset on board, the slate has enough oomph to keep you productive and entertained. The tablet can deliver over 13 hours of web browsing between charges.
3. Apple iPad Pro
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the ultimate Apple tablet, as well as a legit laptop replacement! If you are looking for the most powerful and feature-packed big-screen tablet money can buy, this is the one to get, so long as it fits in your budget.
