The best… tablets

The Week - - Consumer Leisure -

re­mark­able The re­mark­able is ideal for draw­ing: it has a “dig­i­tal pa­per” screen, with a rough tex­ture that cre­ates fric­tion when you ap­ply the sty­lus to it. It dou­bles as an e-reader – but it doesn’t have a back­light (£579; www.re­mark­able.com).

ipad The best op­tion in this ▲ price range, the stan­dard ipad is now cheap for an Ap­ple prod­uct. It’s pow­er­ful and has a bright (if rather too re­flec­tive) dis­play; but if you’re look­ing for some­thing more so­phis­ti­cated, con­sider the ipad Pro (from £339; www.ap­ple.com).

Google Pixel C If you pay an ex­tra £73 for a key­board, the Pixel C turns into a hy­brid lap­top/tablet (or “tabtop”). Ei­ther way, it has im­pres­sive bat­tery life of ten hours and a sharp 2K dis­play (£404; store.google.com).

Ama­zon Fire The Fire isn’t as good as pricier mod­els: its screen is poor and the op­er­at­ing sys­tem lim­ited com­pared with An­droid or IOS. But it’s still in­cred­i­ble value. It’s solidly built and has Ama­zon’s Alexa tech­nol­ogy (£50; www.ama­zon.co.uk).

Sam­sung Galaxy Tab S3 Widely con­sid­ered the best An­droid tablet on the mar­ket, the Galaxy Tab S3 is just 6mm thick. Yes, it’s ex­pen­sive, but it has a stun­ning 9.7in screen and comes with Sam­sung’s ex­cel­lent S Pen sty­lus (£669; www.sam­sung.com).
