1.Low Price Tablets
Amazon Fire HD 8 (2018)
The Fire HD 8 of 2018 is the evolution of the 2017 model, although the changes are very slight. Its price is still attractive because it is displayed at less for the 16 GB version. Its only flaw is the FireOS interface that does not use the services of Google, but those of Amazon. So there is no Play Store, or applications like Play Music or Play Movies. Note that the model of 2018 is almost identical to that of 2017, except that the Android version goes from 5.1 to 7.1.
In our test, the Fire HD 8 scored 3.5 / 5.
2.Huawei MediaPad M5
The Huawei MediaPad M5 is a 10.1 “tablet at affordable price and more than adequate performance. It works with Android 8.0 Oreo. Its IPS screen has as always at Huawei beautiful colors, making it an ideal tablet for multimedia use. The Kirin 659 home processor and its 2 GB of RAM – or 3 GB depending on the model – is enough to ensure all the daily tasks and even run a few games. This tablet is often on sale, then rising below the price mark. An excellent choice for small budgets!
3.Asus Zenpad Z301M
Asus has to his credit a few tablets whose price is not excessive. Zenpad Z301M is one of the best in the 10.1 “format. It has a full HD IPS samsung smart tv screen and runs Android 7.0 Nougat. Be aware that the manufacturer uses an overlay named ZenUI that will not necessarily please everyone. Apart from that, this discount machine should be more than enough for multimedia use.
10 inch tablets
If the first 10-inch tablets were more of a non-mobile use (consultation of content inside, reading of film or books, etc.), the latest models are becoming thinner and lighter which facilitates their transport.
4.Apple iPad (2018)
The new Apple iPad comes directly walk on the flower beds of tablets on Android. It retains the size of 9.7 “so dear to the American brand and of course uses a beautiful screen Retina. Its resolution of 2048 x 1536 px uses IPS technology and offers beautiful colors.
Power level, the new iPad has the A10 Fusion chip used on the iPad Pro. It is one of the most powerful in the market. And best of all, the 2018 iPad is compatible with the Apple Pen Touch Pen. Prices are also relatively low for an Apple product, since the tablet is marketed in its 32 GB version. It is a good compromise if the iPad Pro seems too expensive.
5.Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 10.5 “
The Galaxy Tab S4 is Samsung’s newest tablet. It marks a turning point in the range, giving up the fingerprint reader in favor of facial recognition and iris. The large 10.5 “Super AMOLED display has thin best 4k tv edges, so the tablet is not much more cumbersome than its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S3. Note also the presence of a touch pen and Dex mode that allows you to switch to a PC style display. The Galaxy Tab S4 is a very good tablet, but its price of price does not put it within range of all purses … She scored 8.7 / 10 in our test.
The 2017 version, the Galaxy Tab S3, is also available. It marks a nice upscale with finally little big changes compared to its elder, the Tab S2. If you already own the Galaxy Tab S2, the new Samsung tablet will not bring you much. On the other hand, if you have a big budget, it should meet your requirements. She scored 8.5 / 10 in our test.
Shelves 8 inches or less
In the segment of tablets 8 “and less stars are of course the formats 7 inches and 7.9 inches.

If your budget is limited, opt for version 2. For about price less, you will not have the fingerprint sensor, the laminated screen and the latest generation processor (ie the A7 instead of A8 on the 4th version). Compared to the design they are alike but the iPad Mini 4 is a bit lighter and especially less thick (6.1mm against 7.5mm).
Her downsides ? First of all its price slightly higher than the competition and as always with Apple, a lack of chronic connectivity. In our test, the iPad Mini scored 4/5.
7.Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7
The Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is a very good surprise. Its Super AMOLED screen offers excellent performance, its performance is finally at the rendezvous and autonomy reaches 11:40 min according to our tests. A tablet at the top for a reasonable price about currently.
The big sister of 9.7 “is out, we tested it: a good tablet but which lacks evolution compared to the previous model. She scored 4/5 in our test.
8.Huawei MateBook Signature Edition
Taking over from the MediaPad M3, Huawei’s Chinese MediaPad M5 tablet is an excellent choice for multimedia enthusiasts. It ships a 2k screen (2560 x 1600 px) and Harman Kardon speakers. The Kirin 960 processor will be able to decode your most greedy videos. The only brake that can be seen on the purchase of this tablet is the Huawei EMUI overlay that heavily modifies Android giving it a look close to iOS.
It is about price, a reasonable price given the quality of this tablet. An excellent 8/10 was awarded to him during our test.
Shelves more than 10 inches
We are opening a new category of tablets with screens of about 12 inches. The models are still quite rare but we should see more and more. With these devices place the comfort of use and a congestion a hair more important.
9.Microsoft Surface Pro
This is the fifth generation of the tablet of the American giant Microsoft. It works thanks to Windows 10, all in a good quality magnesium shell and a 12.3-inch screen. It can be connected to a touch cover that acts as a keyboard and protection (two different versions exist). Thanks to its power it is closer to a netbook than a simple tablet. This may explain its (too) high price.
We tested it (note 9.5 / 10) and it is a beautiful hybrid machine, ideal if your budget allows.
To buy if you want more than a tablet (a tablet with a piece of PC in!).
10.Samsung Galaxy Book
Samsung is trying out Windows 10 with its Galaxy Book of 12 “. With high-end specifications, a nice design and a beautiful screen, this tablet will suit both professionals and individuals.

The iPad Pro is an impressive 12.9 “tablet from Apple. Its goal is clear: attract professionals by offering various features such as multi-windows and the use of the stylus. The technical specifications are of course up to the ambitions of the machine: A9X processor, Retina 2732 x 2048 px screen, fingerprint sensor. Of course, the price is also significant.
Tablets with Keyboard Dock
Although potentially all tablets can connect to a keyboard (via bluetooth for example) some models are designed to work with a keyboard that is clipped to the tablet (often sold for a hundred euros extra). If you want to equip a PC that is tablet, look at our selection of hybrid PC and the criteria to watch for your purchase.
12.HP Pavilion x2
In the field of keyboard dock hybrids, HP is a good choice with the Pavilion x2. The tablet part offers a 10 “HD screen that is clipped to a keyboard for use as a conventional laptop. The specifications are sufficient for light office use or web browsing: Atom x5-Z8350, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage. We especially appreciate the well-connected connectors and the very small footprint. Indeed, the whole tablet + keyboard is not more than 1.09 kg.
13.Microsoft Surface Go
For a model under Windows 10, you can look at Microsoft’s Surface Go. This tablet is a “low-cost” Surface that retains many benefits from its big sisters to. Magnesium shell, 10 “PixelSense screen, transportability at the top: it has something to seduce. Nevertheless, it has a few defects, including the keyboard sold separately that rises the bill quickly, while its use is more than recommended for maximum comfort. He will also be reproached for a somewhat feeble autonomy.
This tablet is still ideal for people who want a machine that is easy to transport, versatile and powerful for basic tasks. She scored more than respectable 7.8 / 10 in our test.
