You will get lots of tablets in the market from different manufacturers, but you must be curious to know which are best. So Here is our Top 5 tablets for 2013.
First in line is the latest model of Apple’s 4th Generation iPad. With its new A6X chip along with iOS 6 despite some draw back with iOS 6, switching from one application to another, playing games, surfing the web and pretty much all the necessary things you do on a tablet, the iPad does it buttery soft and blazingly fast. Not to mention the slim design that is certainly admired by many and a much longer battery life even with the boost in processing power. The not so good side is the lack of USB port that we see in some of the latest tablets that are released on the market. Despite all that, the good side weighed much more than the cons and that is the main reason why we give it our first pick.
Asus Transformer Pad Infinity Tf700
Our second pick for this year’s tablet is the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700. The fact that the processor of this tablet is an NVIDIA Tegra 3, a Quad Core, clocked at 1.5 GHz and up to 1.7 GHz if you need a boost made the tablet launch applications quickly. Another thing I loved with this tablet is its high resolution display of up to 1920 x 1200 that is slightly cranked up than full HD. Furthermore, games run really smooth as well and it has a decent back camera with LED flash which is great. Sad to say, the battery life is compromised compared to its predecessor the Prime and even with its high resolution, it’s not there yet when compared to the latest iPad which made it our second pick.
Microsoft Surface Windows RT
Third pick goes to Microsoft Surface Windows RT. It’s using an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 2GB RAM, and has two 720p HD LifeCams both front and rear facing. With all due respect to the operating system that lets you run several applications at the same time without having any problems whatsoever. Downside is on its usability where it claims to be both a tablet and laptop with its additional dock which is the complete irony, because it’s hard to place it on a lap if you only have the built-in kick stand to have it upright and the keyboard dock doesn’t feel that good as a laptop, and as a tablet, there are a lot of gestures you need to be familiar before you get the hang of it. Despite that, with its performance, we give it ournumber 3 spot.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Top 4th pick for 2013 is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Due to its light weight, slim design that is comparable to the iPad, along with the operating system, the Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and the vibrant display with the rear camera are the good characteristics that we noticed. Downside is on playing flash demanding movies or clips, although it has support for flash but you could still see slight delay on it. Overall it’s one of the best Android tablets available and that gave us the reason to pick it at number four.
Google Nexus 7
Fifth and final pick goes to Google Nexus 7. It is using an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, but despite that, it can stand 10 hours on battery, and has sharp looking screen running Android Jelly Bean which runs pretty smooth. Cost cheaper compared to other tablets on its caliber and is a tough competitor of our top four pick. It’s just that the Nexus 7 doesn’t have a rear camera which made it to the fifth spot.
