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.
Very fast processor
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an Android 4.0 tablet made with note taking in mind. Unlike many other tablets, it comes with a special stylus - the S Pen, which offers precision superior to that of generic capacitive styli. In terms of specs, its 10.1-inch PLS TFT display has a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, and its quad-core processor runs at 1.4GHz. A pair of cameras is also on board - 5MP main one with auto-focus and LED flash, and a 2MP front-facing shooter.
Amazing Wacom S Pen is stylus heaven
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is ugly and innovative, powerful and limited, a success and a disappointment. With its superb quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, it's the most powerful Android tablet yet, while its stereo speakers mean it's the best-sounding. Its Wacom-based S Pen and tailored apps/interface make it an amazing creativity tool, and it comes with some great pre-installed software like Photoshop Touch.
Granted, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 lacks the one competitive spec that other top-tier tablets specifically the Acer Iconia Tab A700, Apple iPad, and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 have at the same or lesser price. Samsung's rendering enhancements help lessen the sting of this omission somewhat, but the difference is clear, particularly with text-heavy content.
Stylish, superb media playback
It's a much over-used expression, but the Note is an iPad killer. We aren't pretending that Samsung has quite the same build quality as the Apple, and we know people are beholden to the iTunes ecosystem, but the Note has so much that's unique and features that we'd actually use. Its screen is its biggest letdown, but it's not bad, it just doesn't compare well to the iPad 3. It is, however, a great tablet and is very deserving of its score.
Cutting edge fast CPU
Samsung hasn't disappointed us with their new flagship tablet. The Galaxy Note 10.1 has everything we wish for in a tablet except a full HD display: a bright and sharp display, active pen input, an excellent software bundle with customizations that improve usability, dual band WiFi, an AV remote and more. Though the casing is plastic, fit, finish and quality (including the internal hardware design) are excellent.
Fast performance from a powerful quad-core processor
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is Samsung's best 10-inch tablet yet. It's propelled by a powerful chip and the S Pen stylus marks it out from the competition (so long as you have a use for it). While the underwhelming screen resolution and lack of Android Jelly Bean software are disappointing, if you're willing to shell out, it's still a sound Android tablet.
It's hard not to be immediately sceptical of a device that on the face of it is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with an S-Pen thrown in.
Once you spend some time with it, you begin to see the benefits and understand why having a souped-up stylus on a big screen makes more sense than having it on the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note. It's the closest we've come to a real pen on paper experience on a tablet, but is that enough?
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.
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.
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 don't understand why anyone would buy an Ipad over this tablet. I have done alot of research & have owned & still do have an Ipad but it just sits in the drawer now. Unless you like being confined to itunes for all purchases & no expandibility or flash. This is the way better tablet. & there is no need to pay extra for the 32 gig when you can just add a 16 gig sd card for $12. Also it is a bit higher price on here. bought mine at H H greg for $289.00
Seamless docking experience
The new iPad is still the best all-round tablet you can buy, and is backed up by a fantastic eco-system of apps, magazines, music, games and content. It's the more pleasing and polished option, and if your main aim is to keep cost down and entertainment high, the TF300 still falls short.
Individual needs and budget will determine if the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 is right for you, but we applaud Asus for marrying value and performance, and the TF300 comes highly recommended.
Well-built, still thin and light
With its Transformer Pad 300 - or TF300 to give it its model name - Asus has done it again. For under £400 you get a convertible 10in tablet with an IPS screen, Tegra 3 quad-core power, oodles of connectivity and battery life, and a keyboard dock that transforms (if you'll pardon the pun) it into a genuine productivity tool and basic netbook equivalent.
No problem with opening apps quickly and coping well with multi-tasking
The Transformer Pad 300 offers an attractive package for a reasonable price. £399 will get you 32GB of storage and the keyboard dock thrown in too. The excellent selection of ports, decent screen, competent performance and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich round-off a solid effort from Asus.
