A Strong Contender for Best Tablet
Sony delivered in a big way, and it appears that they've learned from their mistakes in previous, rather anemic tablet offerings. The combination of a great hi rez screen, decent sound, expandable storage, ease of extended use, battery life, raw horsepower... plus features like universal remote control and waterproof... really do make the sum of the whole the best there is, in my opinion.
Really light, Beautiful screen
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is a triumph, a tablet that genuinely deserves consideration when you're in the market for a new top-end gadget. If you're against the iPad for any reason, or even just agnostic over your OS, the Sony has taken the best of Android and fused it with its own innovation to make a device that delights in more ways than we can count.
Four-speaker system with virtual surround modes
Sony's best and brightest tablet, however, has to face the formidable iPad franchise competition when it ventures outside of the Android world, with the hundreds of thousands of tablet-specific apps available for it. Thankfully, the Xperia Tablet Z is positioned quite differently, as it sports a thin and light watertight chassis against the more premium, but thicker and heavier aluminum build of the iPad 4, and offers more features like expandable storage, IR blaster and quad-speaker system,...
Dust and water resistant, High performance
In our verdict about Sony's pre-series device we wrote: "The test device Sony lent us from the pre-series certainly whet our appetite." We would like to have seen improvements in the areas of camera and speakers -- but alas. However, Sony did improve their display -- at least in some respects. It glows more brightly now, but the contrast is now a little weaker. The display's color accuracy is also somewhat improved.
Feels extremely good in your hands
Sony has made a very desirable tablet in the Xperia Tablet Z. We particularly like its striking svelte design and features that you don't get with rivals such as NFC, its waterproof casing and infrared. However, its slightly lacking performance means the Nexus 10 will save you some money or the iPad 4 will give you a smooth experience for the same price.
Super inexpensive, Impressive battery life
Lenovo might still be trying to gain some traction in the Android tablet space, but they're definitely getting our attention with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10. It may not be a high powered thing that would capture the imagination of people, but the combination between its affordable cost, intriguing design, and unprecedented battery life, help to give it a standing chance in hitting the big time.
A versatile tablet at a reasonable price
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 is one of the cheaper 10in tablets around and it has an excellent design. Hardware and task performance are both lacking somewhat but battery life is a strong point. A great Android tablet for those less bothered about top-end specs.
Unique design makes it comfortable to hold, stand is convenient
In summary, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet offers a lot for its price and is unique proposition that will have some appeal. If you're after the best tablet on the market then you can get better specs on a smaller device like the Nexus 7, but you can't deny that the Yoga Tablet is reasonably good value for money and a welcome take on the tablet concept.
Best battery life of any tablet, Built-in kickstand is useful
We want to like this tablet, but we can't. As much as we'd love to recommend a tablet because Ashton Kutcher laid his two and a half hands on it, if you're going to spend a few hundred dollars for a new device, you want the best you can get for your greenbacks. This ain't it.
The battery life is great and the stand is useful, but the processing power of the Yoga Tablet doesn't match cheaper competitors like the Nexus 7, and Lenovo's user interface is ugly and buggy.
Built-In Stand Offers Multiple Modes, Very Long Battery Life
Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 10 definitely tried to be different and in some way it succeeds but ultimately it is undone by some budget class features. The tablet is designed to be affordable and it does achieve this compared to other 10-inch tablets. The kickstand and long battery life are its real stand out features although the odd shape can take a while to get used to or carry around.
High-resolution IPS screen, Decent performance
Asus' Memo Pad FHD 10 only lacks a bit of 3D performance for a price of just under 350 Euros (~$468). Particularly graphic-demanding game apps stutter along in view of the tablet's only middling graphics performance, excluding the benchmarks. The CPU is inconspicuous and even copes with most available apps. The x86 heredity under the hood is rarely noticed.
Sort of expensive but VERY good
This was a gift to my son and his family. They played all day Christmas with the tablet. As soon as one put it down, the next one grabbed it and headed for the computer room. Ages 16- 47 and well versed in computer and tablet/pads.... the learning curve was very easy for them.
The Google Nexus 10 is clearly a brilliant tablet. It's got top-end specs at a mid-range price; that alone makes it deserving of attention. Add to that a generally stunning screen and near faultless performance and it really does start to look like an iPad beater.
But after spending some time with it we can't quite be as enthusiastic as we'd like. The lack of expandable storage combined with the fairly limited internal storage really hampers its media capabilities.
Incredible high resolution display
It lacks the razor sharp design of Asus top line Android tablets or the extended wealth of functionality available with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, but hot damn, there's no arguing that the Google Nexus 10 triumphs over them with its hard to believe price point of $399! Considering that it's featuring the highest resolution display to grace a tablet thus far, it's absolutely hard to fathom how it's priced the way it is.
Superb display, fast performance, good ergonomics
I'll be honest, I didn't expect to like the Google Nexus 10 that much. It isn't that I don't like Android, in fact Android is my main squeeze, but on paper the Nexus 10 didn't set my heart on fire. Once I got my hands on the tablet that changed. Why? The display is drop-dead gorgeous and it's faster and smoother than any other Android tablet on the market, including the Nexus 7 that seemed to get a little slower with the Android 4.2 update.
Excellent performance from a dual-core chip
The 10-inch Google Nexus 10 squares off against the iPad -- and measures up well. With plenty of power, an eye-popping screen and the latest Android software, it'd be worth a look even if it wasn't so much cheaper than Apple's tablet. Canon EOS 5D Mark III.
There's no doubt about it, the Google Nexus 10 is a fantastic tablet that challenges and in the case of the 300ppi display beats - the iPad in almost every department. Google has produced a genuine contender that's slim, light and tactile; fast, effortlessly easy to use and a joy to play with.
The screen is a sensation and deserves the plaudits, but the Nexus 10 isn't perfect yet.
Gorgeous display is among the best on any tablet
So here you have a tablet that looks like every other tablet - yet another black rectangle. And yet, the pure Android 4.2 software (which is the best all-around Android experience out there) combined with the stellar internals and the awesome screen make it vastly better than any other big Android tablet before it. It's clearly the best 10-inch Android tablet you can buy right now. If only we had some apps to spice it up.
Best tablet for your money
Fast, responsive, light, feels very comfortably holding unit your hands. Excellent battery life. It has everything I wanted his tablet to have. Micro USB, HDMI, micro SD port for up to 64gb expansion, fast quad core processor. Excellent quality colors on the screen. JB operating system. There are no issues with this tablet, no hiccups, no glitches, period. And best part is the price. Folks, it is under $300! Are there better units on the market? Of course, yes.
Battery life, low temperature under load
In the previous weeks, we used the IdeaTab S6000 every day and it left a good impression. The 10-inch tablet features the usual wireless modules (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS) and a 3G module for mobile Internet. The capacity of the internal memory of 32 GB is sufficient and a slot for microSD cards is available. The battery life cannot be criticized in any way and the tablet achieves a very good battery life in demanding scenarios.
Good tablet in 10 in range, could have been better
The time has come to fight it out for tablets! I would say go from budget and size. If budget is not a concern, I would say go for Samsung Tab 8". 8" is a sweet spot. If budget is a concern, Tab 3 7" is awesome, otherwise get the Tab 8. If you are business user, most likely the company will give the 10" tablet.
Thin and light construction
Once regarded as the premium tablet offering from Samsung's camp to compete against Apple's mighty iPad, the Galaxy Tab series has now taken the back seat as an entry-level model - leaving the Galaxy Note series to occupy its former throne. Brandishing a $399 price point for the base 16GB Wi-Fi model, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch might seem like a tempting offering, especially when it's priced below the $500 mark, but seriously, it just doesn't seem enough to overpower some of the other noise...
Very slim and light, bright display, has IR AV remote
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 isn't a bad tablet, it's just a bit lacking for the price, and it provides little reason for Tab 2 owners to upgrade. The display, though not high resolution, is bright and colorful thanks to Samsung's PLS technology that's similar to IPS, and the tablet is attractive even if it is cursed with Samsung's love of shiny plastic.
Screen is impressively bright
My experience with the Tab 3 10.1 was more frustrating than functional. Even while cutting it some slack for being a midrange tablet that's impressively small and light for a 10-inch device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 fails to make a good case for taking it home.
The tablet's specs resemble the Tab 2 10.1's too closely to be considered an actual upgrade. The Tab 3 10.1's tendency to lag coupled with its flawed navigation array functionality don't justify the starting price of US$399.
Tablet Experiences Lots of Lag, Lower Resolution Display
Samsung tried to deviate from the standard design for an Android tablet and the gamble almost worked. Sure, the tablet runs Android on an Intel Atom processor, but there are lag issues that plague it such that it is not a good experience compared to the standard ARM based competitors. Add to this the fact that they decided to use a lower resolution display without dropping the price accordingly and the tablet is going to be a tough sell.
Love the Product
I bought this tablet for my wife as a birthday present. One of the reasons I bought this tablet is Amazons description lists it has a flash for the rear camera. I was quite disappointed to find out it doesn't. Other than that my wife seems to really enjoy the tablet, but I might have went with the Asus TF700 model that does have a flash.
Takes decent photos & videos
In all fairness, the Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10 is a wonderful option if you're on a tight budget for a 10" tablet; It has enough of a well-rounded performance to propel it over other comparable models, and the $300 price point that's attached to it is absolutely dreamy for something that's targeting the full-sized tablet segment of the market, which is undeniably competitive in many aspects.
Solid connectivity options
Like so many of Asusâ??s Android tablets, the Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10 excels at being practical. On the plus side it's fairly cheap and comes with expandable memory and a decent processor. However, on the flip side, the screen isn't all that great and the cameras also disappoint. Its biggest problem, however, is the Google Nexus 10, which for only Â£50 more offers a lot more tablet for the money.
Bright display, OS is highly customized
A tablet that is inexpensive, but good quality - it seems that is what Asus had in mind when they tasked their engineers with the design of the Memo Pad Smart 10. Overall, the manufacturer has succeeded; we like the very bright display with its vivid colors, the good battery life (which outclasses some of its competition), and the GPS sensor, which is rarely seen in this price range.
Great value for the money, nice IPS display
It's hard not to like the Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10: for the price it's an excellent buy. You get a name brand tablet from a company with a proven Android track record, a sharp (albeit not super high resolution) IPS display, a solid Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU with GeForce graphics and the usual compliment of wireless. There's no NFC, but I doubt many will care, and there's currently no 3G/4G option, but the basics including a strong GPS are there.
Thin and light design
The most impressive thing about the ASUS MeMO Pad Smart 10 is that it streets for around $280, yet it offers a 10.1-inch IPS display, Tegra 3 processor, and a thin and light design. It even looks like a premium tablet, plastic back notwithstanding. You don't get to that price point on a 10.1-inch slate without making some sacrifices, and the biggest one is screen resolution, which checks in at just 1280x800. If you want Full HD 1080p visuals, you'll need to utilize the mini-HDMI port.
I stalked this tablet for months before purchasing. I went to stores and tried it out. And finally I found one day on Amazon for $429!...That was the best price I have seen anywhere. I am enjoying my tablet but at times the internet seems slow to me but movies games everything else runs seamlessly.
Gorgeous sturdy design and build
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T costs $500 and at that price faces direct competition from the new iPad, so - despite the fact that one runs on Android and the other on iOS - comparisons are inevitable. They both feature brilliant screens, but they are brilliant in a different way. The Asus Infinity has the brighter, better suited for outdoor use one, while the iPad claims an advantage in the sheer level of detail and image quality.
Fantastic screen, Powerful, Superb build
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity is a fantastic Android tablet. It has tweaked the design of its predecessor the Prime, upped the clock speed and shot the screen's pixel count into the stars. There's very little to dislike about this tablet, even if it does trade in a few hours of battery life for its upgrades. The price is high but, for now at least, it justifies the premium.
Bright display with stable viewing angles
The display deserves special praise. Asus uses the Super IPS panel which has great viewing angles. The screen is bright, has great contrast and is very sharp. The touch screen works well which makes the use of the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T a real pleasure - indoors and outdoors. And that is what every tablet buyer wants, right?
Slim, stylish, multipurpose
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 takes over from its predecessor as the top Android tablet available. You get high performance mixed with high style, and you don't have to make a lot of sacrifices to get both. Other tablets - including the Prime, which is expected to drop in price once this model gets into the market - may provide better value, but no other Android tablet will give you the full package that the Infinity does.
Bright, beautiful, HD screen
The Toshiba Excite Write is close to being a great tablet. Pen nerds looking for a digital solution that feels right will find this device tempting. Toshiba got pen control perfect. The display gets high marks, too. And though the camera isn't the best for taking pictures, it's useful in other important ways, like document scanning.
