Tablets have grown immensely in popularity over the past several years. This has caused a variety of manufacturers to begin making them. At the same time, it has made buying one a more difficult task as there is more to choose from. With some simple tips for buying a tablet, however, you can feel more confident about your decision.
1. What will you use it for?
Tablets are very multifunctional devices that can be used for a variety of different purposes. For example, some businesses rely on tablets to make inventory-taking a much easier process. And some people buy tablets just to watch movies in bed. Knowing what you'll use your tablet for will help you to decide what features are important to you. For example, is constant access to the internet a necessity? Will you want to someday increase the storage capabilities of the tablet? When you shop with the answers to these questions in mind, it can make ruling out tablets that won't work for your purposes much easier.
2. What apps does it have?
Although the answer to this question is constantly changing, if you have certain apps or types of apps that you know you'll want to use, make sure they're offered on the operating system your tablet uses. More apps can mean more functionality from your tablet, so go with an operating system that has a wide selection. More isn't always the best, however, so you shouldn't simply choose the manufacturer with the most apps (Apple, right now) and go with them. Just make sure you have the variety you need in the type of apps you plan to use.
3. Price doesn't always predict quality
As is the case with most products, just because you pay more for a tablet doesn't mean it's of the highest quality. Some companies, like Amazon, have been able to offer tablets for a low price because they know they'll make money from additional purchases (e.g. books, apps, etc.). Yet their tablet is still a very high-quality product.
4. Size matters
It will matter to you in one way or another, whether it is that you want a tablet of a certain size or want to pay a certain price for your tablet. The smallest tablets are around 7 to 8 inches across. They are very portable and lower-priced than larger models. Medium tablets range from 9 to 10 inches; most tablets fall into this size category. They have higher resolutions screens than the smaller tablets and are better for watching movies or television. There aren't many tablets over 10 inches available now but they are becoming more popular. Many manufacturers call them hybrids because they offer the processing power of a PC but the touch screen of a tablet.
5. Screen resolution
The highest resolution available right now is 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, but you don't need to go that high to have a clear picture. You should test your tablet out, however, and make sure the resolution is to your liking before you make the purchase.
