There’s plenty of choice in tablets these days and our best tablet round-up includes all the ones you should seriously consider, like the best iPads and best Android tablets.
2016 was seriously sparse for really great tablets, so lots of the slates featured on this list were actually released way back in 2015. Will 2017 be any different?
Don’t let that bother you though as there are still plenty of good options.
Whether you’re looking for something to sling in your bag and watch the latest episode of Westworld on your commute, or a replacement for your tired laptop, we’ve got something for you.
There are a couple of upcoming tablets that could find their way into this list when we give them the full review treatment. There’s the new iPad 9.7-inch – which replaces the iPad Air 2 – and Samsung’s Tab S3.
The main things to consider are size and price, though there are a few specialist tablets these days that offer something different.

Is a regular iPad too small for you? Then consider the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, also known as the iPad Pro 2. It’s not cheap, but it does have the best screen, best camera and best performance ever seen on a tablet. It’s rather expensive if you want something just for Netflix binges and web browsing, this might be overkill. But if you want something designed for creativity and productivity on the move, this might be spot on.
It’s a slightly more sensible follow-up to the original 12.9-inch Pad Pro, which was somewhere between an iPad, a MacBook and the Surface Pro. If the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 is still too much tablet for you, it’s worth also looking out for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
