Lets be completely honest here. With all that buzzes about the new attractive features of the Android L, the Apple’s all new iPad Air 2 and other versions of tablets. It simply confuses all of us when it comes to purchasing one. Another big thing that almost all of us tend to forget, is that Google and Apple aren’t the only two companies in the whole world that offer tablets. And if you think that the simplicity of Apple is too simple for you, and you just want to use something that you can customize everything and have more control over. Then you surely are thinking about an Android tablet. So, let’s see what is the best Android tablet that best suites for you.
The Nexus 9 is the upcoming Google’s flagship device that has already started becoming a trend. And with Google’s latest campaign about “Be together. Not the same” I can only see people to start loving this tablet even before its release. The base-model of the Nexus 9 is on pre-order on the Play Store for US$399.
With those front facing BoomSound speakers, and the QXGA 2048 x 1536 screen, the Nexus 9 is definitely make to sound and look great. Behind the great looks of it, there is a 6700 mAh battery, a 2GB RAM, and the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Dual Denver clocked at 2.3GHz.
Nexus 7 (2013)
You cannot purchase this one directly from Google because it is not available there. But you can do some quick searches on eBay or maybe Amazon for around US$199. Also if you happen to stumble on some refurbished units, then you can expect that price to be much lower than that.
We all know what legacy the Nexus 7 has paved for all the Nexus devices. For some of us, the Nexus 7 is the reason why we love all the Nexus devices. This 7-inch tablet is nothing short of power. The 1200 x 1920 pixel screen, along with the 3950 mAh battery can get you through a whole day of streaming videos on YouTube. And you won’t find yourself crippling because the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4Pro Quad core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and with a 2GB RAM will not let that happen to you. Though they are not blazing fast, they will also not let you get sucked in the blackhole of lagginess.
LG G Pad 8.3
LG has always been known for the quality they put in their build quality, and the G Pad is no exception. The great thing they have done, is the availability of the Google Play edition for stock Android lovers. You can own this great tablet for US$249.
It is an 8.3-inch tablet (that’s why the name G Pad 8.3), has a 1200 x 1920 resolution display with a 4600 mAh battery that would power it. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7GHz processor which is combined with a 2GB RAM that pumps out a great performance whenever you want.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S is also a great option. It is still pending to be used by me, so I don’t have anything to say about that.
Over to you
If you ask me, I would blindly go ahead and purchase the Nexus 7 tablet if I was going to purchase it today. So if you are just hanging on the cliff of choosing the tablet and will be finalizing it by today, then I would recommend you to go with the Nexus 7 because it won’t be around for much longer.
But if you want to have some adventurous experience, or simply want something different. Then the LG G Pad 8.3 is a great tablet that you should purchase. And if you like stock Android, then you can simply flash the Google Play Edition ROM onto it.
Enough of my recommendations and what would I purchase. What about you? Which tablet would you purchase if you were going to purchase one today?
