Even though our smartphones have gotten significantly bigger over the last couple of years, there’s still a gap between them and laptops that only large-screen tablets can bridge.

Of course, they’re not the only large-screen tablets that deserve your attention, and this list of the top nine best large-screen tablets in 2019 reflects that.

iPad Pro

The new iPad Pro is all about the display, which now stretches from corner to corner, leaving space only for the front-facing camera with Face ID. The 12.9-inch model has a 2732-by-2048 Liquid Retina Display at 264 pixels per inch. The display supports True-to-life color and ProMotion technologies, which make colors pop out and animations appear incredibly smooth.

The iPad Pro is powered by Apple’s A12X Bionic chipset. The company claims that it’s the smartest and most powerful chip it has ever made, and independent benchmarks agree. The chipset has a state-of-the-art neural engine that allows it to run five trillion operations per second and enables advanced machine learning, making it even faster than most laptops.

Put it all together, and you’re looking at an excellent tablet for serious multitasking and creative work. The tablet is best enjoyed with the new Apple Pencil and the redesigned Smart Keyboard Folio keyboard cover. It has a single USB-C port, giving you a high-performance connection to accessories like an external display or camera.

 

Microsoft Surface Pro 6

With its 12.3-inch PixelSense display, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 positions itself as a portable laptop replacement for people who are always on the go. Even its internal components are fit for a laptop. You can choose between two powerful processors—the Intel Core i5-8350U and the Intel Core i7-8650U—and Microsoft gives you the option to equip the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 with up to 1 TB of storage and up to 16 GB of memory.

Unlike the iPad Pro, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 comes with a whole host of connectivity options, which include a 3.5 mm headphone jack, full-size USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort, Surface Connect port, Surface Type Cover port, and MicroSDXC card reader. The tablet also has a TPM 2.0 chip for enterprise security, and it supports Windows Hello face sign-in.

We recommend you buy the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 with the Microsoft Surface Pro Signature Type Cover, which provides a very comfortable typing experience and includes LED backlighting. You may also purchase the Microsoft Surface Pen to create content without limits.

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a large-screen tablet that can transfer into a PC thanks to DeX, a feature that allows desktop-like functionality by connecting a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. With DeX, you can use apps, review documents, copy and paste between different windows, and watch videos on a PC-like interface, with a click of a mouse or a punch of a key.

DeX is supported by many leading productivity and entertainment apps on Android, including Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Vainglory, Skype, Adobe Acrobat Reader, YouTube, MX Player, VLC, Google Drive, Spotify, and others.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 keyboard cover, which is sold separately. However, it comes with the S Pen, allowing you to jot down ideas and draw images with the ease of a real pen. If you find the iPad Pro and the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 to be too large, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is a great alternative.

Pixel Slate

The Pixel Slate is the latest and greatest tablet from Google. It’s a large screen tablet that is intended to rival the Apple iPad Pro, and brings you an excellent colour gamut and screen clarity as a result.

The Pixel Slate was designed for multitasking purposes — just like the iPad Pro — and as such, they have a bunch of hardware options that you can outfit the Slate with: a Core M3, Core i5, or Core i7 processor.

Google actually hopes that you’ll pick up the keyboard accessory with the Slate, and start to use this as a laptop replacement. It has a massive library of apps and multitasking features that makes that possible, too.

Some of those multitasking tools are Google-built tools like split-screen, multi-window browsing, and collaboration apps like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

And like we mentioned, with an excellent colour gamut, large screen, and top screen clarity, you’ll be able to watch Netflix and your favorite media easily.

Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro

Huawei’s MediaPad M5 Pro is another excellent large screen tablet. With a clear and beautiful display, and a whole 10.8-inches of screen real estate, you’ll be able to easily watch media and videos on this bad boy.

There’s still a bezel here, so it isn’t completely like the iPad Pro; however, with the screen real estate available, you should be able to get some good multitasking done.

It has some great hardware inside as well — a Kirin 960 processor, which keeps things running smoothly. It can actually handle quite a bit of demand, making this tablet even optimal for games.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 might be the new Samsung tablet in town, but the Galaxy Tab S3 shouldn’t be left behind. If you don’t want to spend gobs of money on the S4, the Tab S3 is much cheaper, and still provides a similar experience.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has a large screen with excellent clarity, which makes this tablet ideal for watching movies, media, and even reading.

There’s a handful of multitasking tools built-in as well, which allows you to use this for all sorts of office productivity needs. Samsung even includes an S-Pen for better and more precise control over its functions.

Samsung actually makes it easy to use this on the go as well. There’s an LTE chip that works on GSM networks, giving you Internet connectivity on the go.

HTC Google Nexus 9

The Google Nexus 9 is still an excellent tablet today as far as large screens go. It’s display sits at around 9-inches inside, and there’s some excellent pixel density and resolution that makes everything clear. It’s perfect for watching videos and media.

What we really like about the Google Nexus 9 is the continued software support. Being a device by Google, and in the “Nexus” line of devices, you get all of the latest Android updates with it..

Google actually makes this one easy to use on the go as well. You can pick it up with cellular connectivity, which allows you to use this tablet anywhere there’s a cellular connection!

Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet

When it comes to budget large-screen tablets, the Amazon Fire HD 10 is an easy choice. While you can’t expect miracles from it when it comes to performance, the tablet has enough processing power to satisfy all your cravings for quality entertainment. Amazon Prime members get unlimited access to over a thousand books and magazines, millions of songs, and thousands of movies and TV episodes.

The tablet comes with 32 or 64 GB of storage space, and you can expand it with a microSD card by up to 256 GB. A single charge should give you around 10 hours of use thanks to the efficient quad-core processor, which is now 30 percent faster over the previous generation, allowing you to play games at high frame rates.

The Amazon Fire HD 10 has passed over 50 tests to replicate drops, tumbles, spills, and other everyday wear and tear. Its exceptional durability makes it suitable even for the youngest tablet users out there, and the same can be said about its price.

 

Samsung Galaxy View

You probably won’t be able to find a tablet with a larger screen than the Samsung Galaxy View. This 18.4-inch monster of a tablet is aimed at people who don’t like to make compromises when it comes to entertainment. It comes with a custom user interface with a simple-to-navigate grid menu that puts all your favorite content at your fingertips.

Because the Samsung Galaxy View is so large and heavy, it comes with an integrated handle for easy portability. While the handle makes it possible to carry the tablet around without fatigue, it doesn’t make it any easier to find a suitable pouch or bag for it. That said, you probably wouldn’t want to carry this tablet outside your house anyway.
