Ever since the smartphone’s market too pace, tablets faced a major fall in the market. It’s no surprise why that downfall happened. Since the tiny smartphones have started coming with so many features and high storage, the consumer is left with no reason to go for a tablet. We also have to agree that though we get the smartphones at an almost similar price range, still the tablets are more fun to use. Big touch screen, favorable operating system, and so many other things. So, if you are planning to buy a tablet for yourself, be it for any reason, but not able to settle onto one tablet, then this post will help you a lot. It will teach you how to choose a tablet for yourself.

This is the walk-down to the points you must consider to learn how to choose a tablet

1. Convertible or Straight up Tablet

Both the tablets do come with a touch screen which is equally responsive to use, but what makes them different is the detachable keyboard that comes with the convertible tablet. A normal tablet is in a form of a mobile, a few inches larger than it. You only have a single option to type, which is an on-screen keyboard.

On the other hand, the convertible tablet can either be used along with a keyboard that makes typing hell a lot easier or just as a normal touchscreen tablet.

So, if you are going to prepare or edit your office documents on the tablet, then the convertible would be better, rest just for entertainment and web surfing, the Normal tablet would work fine.

2. What Size?

Sizes are important. Big sizes may fantasize you, but they are not that easy to carry. So, must consider the size of a tablet when you are going through how to choose a table for yourself. A general tablet starts with 8.0 inches of display and the large tablet goes up to 13 inches, iPad from Apple is a great example of various sizes since it is available in various sizes. The size should solely depend on the purpose you are going to buy it for. For home and office use, both the small and large tablets work fine, but if you are going to use them during travels, then a small size would be the best.

Also if you are a designer and looking for a graphics tablet, then always go with the one with a larger screen.

3. Which Operating System?

The operating system of a tablet is also important in the considerations of how to choose a tablet process. Everyone has their favorite operating system. Some die for Android, some die for IOS and a few also die for windows. As compared to android, IOS is pricey and as compared to IOS, Windows is pricey. Ultimate is not just about the operating system you like, but it is also about the type of task you are going to perform on a tablet. For web surfing and social media both IOS and Android are best, but for professional purposes like editing and creating documents, a windows device with Microsoft office is needed.

4. How will you Use?

When you are thinking of how to choose a tablet, it is very important for which purpose you are going to use this tablet.

A. For office

If you are going to use them for office use, then it must come with support for applications to edit and create documents. Though on Android Play Store and IOS App store there are many applications available that can be used to edit documents at ease, we recommend going for a Windows tablet since it comes with the full support of Microsoft office.

B. For Home

For particular home use, you can go for anyone. Make sure you do not spend a large amount of money on that. We recommend not to spend more than $350 on it. Samsung Galaxy Series tablets are some good tablets that can be found in this budget segment.

C. For Kids

For kids, we would advise you to go for 7-8 inches of a tablet. Since their hands are pretty smaller, that size would fit perfectly there. Also, they do not need any high-end specifications to perform any task. Amazon Fire tab is a great tablet that would cost you less than 100 bucks.

5. Which Specs are Must?

The specification is a big factor when you are struggling with How to choose a tablet. Though there are tons of features one should look for in a tablet, but since we cannot talk about all of them here, we are going to talk about the 3 major specifications here.

A. Processor

Processors are the core part of any technical device and must be of great quality. Apple iPad comes with A-series processors and features the latest in the series. Android tablets, on the other hand, have the option to include snapdragon processors or MediaTek processors. All of the Samsung tablets come featured with Snapdragon processors. Windows pc and tablet comes with Intel processors which can vary between versions like i3, i5 or i7.


RAM depends on the price you are willing to invest in, and how much ram you need to depend on the type of usage you are going to carry with you. Ram is very important to run multiple applications smoothly at the same time. If you looking forward to doing intense gaming on your tablet, choose a version with a higher Ram. You should go for a tablet that has at least 2 GB of Ram. If you can go higher, then it is even better.

C. Storage

Some of the tablets come with the option to include an SD card, while some don’t. A typical normal tablet comes with 8 GB or 16 GB of internal storage which is sufficient storage if you are not going to save too much data in there. But in an 8GB storage device, you won’t be able to install all your necessary applications. In this case, you have to choose a larger storage device than 8GB storage.

6. How much to Pay?

The tablets like Amazon fire starts from $49, while the higher-end tablets go as high as $1000+. So you must identify your needs and then finalize a one for yourself. Since the Amazon fire come with their own dedicated ire OS from Amazon, it might not be liked by everyone. IPad from Apple comes in multiple sizes and colors and every one of them comes in multiple storage and Ram options as well, but it would not be fair to buy 12 inches tablet for more than 1000 bucks when an 8-inch tablet can do the task.

If you are not a fan of apple and want to get your hands on some android tablet, then nothing could be better than Galaxy Series from Samsung. They are very well priced and you can get a Samsung Galaxy tablet for as low as $200. In the case of windows, you might not get too many choices. The most popular and probably the best Windows tablet is the Microsoft surface pro which comes in a price range of almost 900 bucks. So price plays a big role in how to choose a tablet game.

Overall, the above-mentioned considerations must be considered when you planned to have a perfect tablet for yourself. I hope, this guide will help you to drive the process of how to choose a tablet for yourself.
