Top Range Tablets: the best to buy

In this always updated guide, we collect all the best top-of-the-range tablet of the moment to increase or improve your productivity. In fact, having something to manage files, correspondence or simply as support for viewing content while your main device is engaged in the other can be very useful. In some cases, the tablet itself may be the main protagonist of a work or study session, as in the case of graphic designers, artists or amateurs.

Before choosing which tablet to buy it is important to understand what are the characteristics that play a determining role in this choice. Beyond the power of the processor and cutting memory expandable always via Micro SD, the fundamental prove to be size, weight, screen quality, autonomy and some killer features that can make the difference.

Dimensions and weight

If you are looking for a comfortable device then weight and size will be essential. Usually, these are proportional features. As the size increases, it should, in general, increase the weight. A large tablet, with a good diagonal, however, is essential for viewing the largest amount of content possible. The right middle ground is certainly represented by one of those devices in which the various companies concentrate all their technology.


Working on a low-resolution display or with a too small diagonal strain the view, slow down the reading and in general it is not the best if you expect long sessions of writing or study. Wide diagonal, good brightness and resolution totally change the user experience without constantly compelling the size of the content or bending to get closer to it.

Processor and RAM

A good processor and adequate RAM are the keys to achieving what you need. Needless to think about gaming or unbridled productivity if you intend to buy a device without respectful hardware. It is always better to focus on devices Quad Core or Octa Core with at least 2GB of RAM.


A powerful device, great for productivity, loses its meaning and utility if it is not a sample of autonomy or does not last as long as necessary to carry out normal activities. The capacity of the battery is, therefore, to be evaluated very carefully considering also its wear over time and the decrease in autonomy over the years.

Killer feature

Some of the killer features that can totally change the user experience are the compatibility with a pen, like S-Pen for Samsung and Apple Pencil for iPad, or the possibility to transform the device into a computer simply by connecting it to a monitor as it is possible for Samsung through DeX.

Let’s talk about the older brother of all the Apple tablets presented in 2018. A cutting edge device that shares the same characteristics as the 11 “younger brother. A 12.9 “ display, however, is similar to that of a 13.3″ Macbook and this brings considerable improvements for those who need a large display to read, write and above all draw.

It is the worthy successor of the Galaxy Tab S3 and represents, at least for the moment, the pinnacle of technology and commitment used by Samsung in such devices. This is a very accurate product and not only aesthetically as the Korean house has always accustomed us. The clean and minimal design, which strongly recalls the philosophy followed on smartphones starting with Samsung Galaxy S6, comes with the glass in the back where the camera stands out, horizontally centered. The frames are optimized, made thinner to contribute not only to the design but also to the ergonomics of the product. The technical file is obviously generous. It comes with:
