According to recent research, half of the families own at least one tablet. Research also shows that %70 percent of children between ages 5 and 15 have access to a tablet. Even, many toddlers have their own tablet. As reports show that people of all ages are using tablets, manufacturers come with different devices targeting different user groups, which makes selecting the correct device complicated.
Before buying a tablet you must think how you will use it. Will you use it for work or playing games or just for checking emails, using social networks and surfing the Internet.
Here are our recommendations for buying the right tablet:
For general home use
If you will use your tablet for web surfing, checking emails, listening to music and playing light games, any tablet will do the work, just be careful about battery life and screen size.
For using at work
We recommend getting one with pen support for this kind of use. Samsung Note series are popular in this category but a tablet that runs Windows have also many advantages. If you want to get a tablet for a laptop replacement we recommend Microsoft Surface Pro series.
If you want to play serious games, Apple tablets are the way to go. They offer great performance, good screen resolution, and long battery life.
