5 Best iPad Alternative In 2018

The iPad is probably one of the best tablets on the market, mostly because it has some of the smoothest running software on-board. The device itself is pretty slick-looking, too. There’s not a whole lot of tablets that are able to get both of those aspects right, but Apple seems to hit the nail on the head every time. But, for some reason or another, you may not be a fan of the Apple iPad anymore — maybe improvements over the years haven’t been extreme enough for you, or maybe you’re just ready for something new. Whatever the case might be, if you follow along below, we’ll show you the best alternatives to the Apple iPad. Here are our top picks.

Google Nexus 9

We, of course, have to mention the Google Nexus 9. The Google Nexus 9 is Google’s own tablet with the stock Android experience on-board. As the name implies, it has an almost 9-inch display at 8.9-inches. It’s quite beautiful looking and can really immerse you in a good movie or TV series. It has some powerful hardware as well, so playing demanding games or using intensive applications shouldn’t be an issue for you. The Google Nexus 9 is actually a really smooth experience, so you shouldn’t have trouble with navigating the tablet, let alone using it on the daily for whatever tasks you might have.

Galaxy Tab S3

If you’re looking for an iPad alternative that offers a similar seamless and smooth experience to the iPad, look no further than what is offered in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. With the Galaxy Tab S3, you basically get the immersive and polished experience of the Galaxy S9 in tablet form. That said, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is a sleek looking device with powerful hardware. It’s actually running off of a Snapdragon 820 processor, so this tablet is able to handle just about anything, including any multi-tasking that you might need to get done. It’s great for business, too — the Galaxy Tab S3 works really well with presentations, excel documents, Office documents, and so much more. It has a massive 6,000mAh battery as well, so it should last a fairly long time off of a single charge, too.

Fire HD 10

You might also want to consider what Amazon is offering in the Fire HD 10. The Fire HD 10 isn’t a true “Android” experience, with Amazon instead locking you into its own Amazon Fire OS skin atop of Android. That said, you don’t have access to the Play Store here either, just Amazon’s own appStore, which does have many apps found on iTunes and the Play Store. This is all done to give you the true “Amazon experience,” which Amazon hopes is a flawless media experience that will rival some of the big players in the market. Everything you need is right there on Fire OS — quick access to movies, TV, books, games, apps, music, you name it. The Fire HD 10 even works really well with other Amazon products, such as the Amazon Echo.

MediaTab M5

Huawei has become a big name in the Android market, mostly impressing the world with their cutting edge smartphones. Now, they’re trying to impress with their MediaTab M5 tablet lineup. The MediaTab M5 has a 10.8-inch 2.5D display, which is excellent for watching movies and TV shows on. The 2,560 1,600 high resolution will let you see all of the wonderful details in shows like Westworld and Game of Thrones. The tablet overall has an elegant, industrial design with only the best hardware packed inside. This means that the MediaTab M5 should be able to handle even the most demanding games and applications on the Play Store.

iPad Pro

Last, but certainly not least, we have Apple’s own iPad Pro. The Pro is a lot different than the regular iPad, opening up access to more powerful hardware, its own stylus, and ultimately something that can more easily replace a laptop. The iPad Pro is able to handle most things flawlessly, such as music/studio apps, business solutions, apps for designers, artists, IT personnel, and so much more — the iPad Pro is such a versatile piece of hardware that it’s hard to pass up.
