5 Best Tablet For The Money In 2018

We all want to get the most bang for our buck in anything we purchase. Not only that, but we don’t want to buy things that aren’t going to last or are known to fail. The same goes for tablets — we want to get the best for our money, but we certainly don’t want a tablet that is known to have plenty of issues, even if, on the surface, it appears that it seems like it’s a good deal. When in search of the best tablet for the money, you want to make sure you do your research — there’s not only a lot of hardware not worth buying out there, but there’s also a lot of knock-offs that resemble an actual product (i.e. the iPad), but wasn’t actually made by Apple, or even has close-to the hardware that an Apple iPad would have.

If you follow along below, we’ll show you our top five picks for the best tablets for the money! Let’s get started.

Apple iPad Pro (10.5-inch)

It goes without saying, Apple made waves when they announced the Apple iPad Pro, one of the first iPads to come to market that were truly geared towards professionals. Not only does it sport some phenomenal hardware, but it removed the need to carry around a paper notepad with you. Now, you can take lifelike notes on the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. It’s one of the major features that sets the iPad apart from the rest of Apple’s iPad lines. There are some wicked things you can do with it beyond just write, as many developers are putting neat Apple Pencil gestures and features in their apps now.

Beyond that, you get plenty of real estate with the 10.5-inch screen. The iPad Pro will be able to tackle any task you throw at it, and makes for a perfect laptop replacement for on the go work.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

Samsung’s answer to the Apple iPad is the Galaxy Tab S3. It’s one of Samsung’s premium tablets, and actually, one of the most premium Android tablets on the market right now. It’s a little smaller than the iPad Pro at 9.7-inches, and it does have some rather strange bezels. However, the screen is beautiful and will play all of your favorite movies flawlessly. Battery life is actually rated for 12 hours of constant use.

It has plenty of other neat features, such as multitasking capabilities, adaptive fast charging technology, powerful hardware to play all of the latest high-end Android games, and so much more.

Microsoft Surface Pro

For those that want a more unique tablet experience, but with Windows 10 on it, consider what the Microsoft Surface Pro has to offer. This is a cheap tablet solution that can easily be outfitted with a keyboard in the event that you want it to double as a laptop. Out of the box, you just get the Surface Pro as a tablet, but you can pair accessories with it to to make it more laptop-like.

It does have a large 12.3-inch PixelSense display, with options for SSD space as much as 1 terabyte. It’s got a powerful Intel processor packed in it, as well as up to 16GB of RAM, so you’ll be able to do most tasks on your computer on this tablet in a breeze.

Amazon Fire HD 10

The Amazon Fire HD 10 is another excellent choice. It’s got blazing fast hardware and is more geared towards those who want a great media experience. The Fire HD 10 works wonderfully well with all of Amazon’s products — Prime Video, Amazon Music, and more. The downside, is that you are locked into a controlled environment — Amazon’s own skin atop of Android. But, if you want something that excels in media, the Fire HD 10 is the one to go for.
