Sometimes, a good recommendation can be a great starting point or the final confirmation when making the decision to buy a device like a tablet. Of course, not every tablet works for every user, and not every user wants every tablet that’s available, so it doesn’t hurt to filter through the options. This group of tablets are the ones that stand out based on feedback from you, the readers and consumers.

Review: Hipstreet Phoenix Android tablet

Lately I’ve been spending some time with the Hipstreet Phoenix tablet. I’ve used a lot of different tablets over the years, from the ubiquitous iPad, to the genre defying Surface. I love how much variety there is in tablets these days, and its great that more manufacturers are getting in on the scene too. While Hipstreet is by no means new to the tablet game, I had never tried out any of Hipstreet’s devices before so I was particularly curious how this tablet would stack up the other tablets out there. I have no existing expectations from the brand so this was like a blind taste test. I usually keep quite up to date on the news for all the latest gadgets but I had no idea what to expect this time.

I love seeing tablets grow in popularity. Over the past few years they went from a niche experimental device to an invaluable addition to your digital arsenal. You can get tablets suited to different needs, with widely varying features, power levels, and specifications. This year it seems like the big things with tablets is to be ‘Ultra’ in some way. Whether its ultra-thin, ultra-powerful, ultra large, ultra-portable, or even ultra-durable. A lot of tablets pick out one factor to favor and go all in to live up to it as well as possible, carving out its own niche.

Nexus devices are, by and large, collaborations of Google’s latest version of Android, and the hardware design of a leading manufacturer, which is HTC in the case of the Nexus 9. The debut of Android 5.0 Lollipop on a device that is good enough to compete with the elite of the tablet category makes for one of the most intriguing Android devices to launch this year. Its performance and user experience only serve to justify the attention its received so far.

To an outsider, it might seem like all tablets are the same. They’re more or less all flat rectangles with touchscreens and a couple of buttons along an edge or two. Don’t let the superficial similarities fool you though. There can be a huge difference between tablets and picking the right tablet to match how you intend to use it can make all the difference in the world.

You want to buy a tablet for someone you love and respect, but might be unsure which model fits best with whom you’re buying for. In some cases, it can be easy to decide, whereas it might not be in others, particularly if the person you have in mind has never owned one before. Options abound, and it’s not just about the products themselves, but what experience or solution they can provide.

How to pick a tablet by screen size

It's wonderful seeing tablets grow increasingly popular with each passing year. They’re becoming invaluable devices for anyone who needs more than a smartphone, but less than a desktop workstation PC. These days there are so many tablet options that you can surely find one to suit your needs and one of the big factors in your decision ought to be screen size. The size of your tablet’s screen can make a big impact on how you use the device in the future. It impacts how portable the device is, sure. Obviously a mini-tablet is easier to carry around than a jumbo-tablet, but it is so much more than that. Depending on which screen size you go for, it can affect how you hold your tablet, how useful it is for certain tasks, and of course how much you’ll be spending.

In the space of less than six months, Samsung has launched three different tablet variants in a quest to offer something for everyone, and the Galaxy Tab S falls in the premium consumer column. Where the TabPRO is primarily targeted at business users and the Galaxy Tab 4 line aimed at the budget-conscious, the Galaxy Tab S is the company’s elite consumer tablet, meant to not only be the best Samsung can deliver, but also the best on the market.

Review: Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2

A tablet with a 12.2-inch screen is hard to miss, no matter who makes it, but this being the NotePRO, Samsung has combined more real estate with the improved efficiency of the S Pen to create a compelling combination. Of course, at that screen size, it’s almost where the most portable of laptops currently are, raising questions about what you can get out of it over and above its basic tenets. As is, though, it’s a tablet that is easy on the eyes and takes the good things from Samsung’s TouchWiz, while leaving the extraneous stuff out of the way.
