The best tablets of 2016

The popularity of tablets began to grow relatively recently – exactly at the moment when the first iPad from Apple was introduced. Today it is a whole industry that produces tablets in the amount of hundreds of millions a year. In this collection, we will consider the best tablets of 2016 of all categories.

Apple iPad Pro

One of the most interesting new products this season is a huge tablet from Apple, whose screen size is as much as 12.9 inches! True, when buying this device, you need to clearly understand what you want to use it for. Gaming? The screen is too large, although if you use the joystick, it will be perhaps the best choice on the market. Painting? There are special graphic tablets for this. Watching a video? It is convenient, but constantly holding such a large device in your hands is a dubious pleasure. But if you know exactly what you need the Apple iPad Pro for, you won’t be disappointed, because it is really a great device in every sense: from design to a beautiful screen. Yes, another point – the iOS operating system is used here.

Xiaomi MiPad 2

Devices from the Chinese company Xiaomi are almost the best in the market in terms of price and quality. MiPad 2 is no exception.

For example, the case is now not plastic, but metal, while the SIM card slot is still missing. But the rest is a wonderful tablet for a great price, which, apparently, was created in spite of the iPad mini. By the way, it became possible to install Windows 10 instead of Android!
