Gaming is more fascinating with large-size tablets having high resolution screens, superior audio capabilities, high processing speed, high-end graphics card and ease of action control. Android and iOS based tablets offer you good collection of games to download from the respective app stores.

The best tablet for games should have a display size of around 10 inch and high screen resolution to provide sharper, colorful and richer visual effects while playing. Moreover, prefer the tablets using In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, a screen technology meant to solve the low quality color reproduction and limited viewing angle problems in LCDs.

The tablets for playing games come with screen resolution as high as 2560 x 1600 pixels. However, more pixels increase the load on the GPU thereby affecting the performance of the tablets. It is good to go for 1280 x 800 pixels screen resolution like the one in Lenovo tablets.

Presence of audio features like stereo speakers and microphones are essential for better and more involving gaming experience.

Gaming tablets should have fast processors for instant response to keep up the interest throughout the game. Opt for the tablets having powerful graphics card as this decides the resolution of screen which needs to be high for games.

While the iPhone is a gadget that's still in evolution, the iPad feels pretty close to perfection.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 isn't a tablet that will instill gadget lust the way an iPad Air might, but a good screen and reasonable size make it a solid option.

It's also worth stressing it's a fine laptop replacement in any other setting.

Sony's slate is clearly capable of trading blows with Samsung's oeuvre, though that Quadrant score seems anomalously low.

With the Aspire Switch 10, Acer has introduced a fine detachable tablet, making it a safe purchase for anyone in the market for a portable Windows tablet without giving up the productive capability of a clamshell design.
