The best tablets of the moment

I migliori tablet del momento

Less economical than 7-inch tablets, but more intriguing, versatile and powerful. Here are our favorites

The economic tablets have been depopulated for a couple of years now, thanks to an irresistible value for money. And yet their reduced format and low cost formula represents just a glimpse of the whole panorama of tablets: growing diagonally and setting aside a few euros more we find decidedly more attractive products. Here is the best the market has to offer for this expanding niche.

Difficult to predict if the tablet of wonders of Google bisser the success of the excellent Nexus 7. To take home the medium-format tablet built by Htc, in fact, you need to empty your wallet a little more.

But above all the only tablet to mount the latest version of the Google operating system: Android Lollipop a feast for the eyes and finally designed to adapt to the screens above 7.

The Apple champion has very few differences compared to last year's introduction of the Retina display. But the screen itself, even if in the meantime it was achieved (and in some cases exceeded) by number of pixels, remains a small miracle. Added to this is the classic, superb combination of hardware and software design and, as a novelty, the recognition of fingerprints using TouchID. The Apple tablet it does not innovate, but perhaps it has not yet been able to do so. Of course, if you already have the previous version you can safely keep the money under the mattress.

so impalpable and light that it seems almost fragile. Instead the Compact is not only resistant to twisting, but also to water and dust. The Japanese tablet offers smooth performance, a more than decent camera, a full HD screen and a microSD card slot that never hurts. Inside he has nothing to envy of any of his adversaries, but the extreme design that makes you fall in love with him: in the bag he disappears, in his hand he holds it with pleasure and without effort.

Take an avalanche of pixels, compress it in a Super AMOLED screen of only 8.4 diagonal and you will have the display of Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the ace in the sleeve of this unique tablet of its kind. Of course, even the home-made processor performs well and the expandable memory ensures versatility, but it is the extreme brilliance of colors and the unmatched definition that must be seen with one's own eyes. The user interface packaged by Samsung unfortunately as always confusing and full of features that you will prefer to disable, but overall this is a product that must be taken into consideration.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDx 8.9

Jeff Bezos's company keeps up with the times by updating its series of tablets with many new models. The flagship product in terms of size and specifications is the 8.9, which together with an excellent brand-new processor brings with it the very high definition display of the 2013 Fire, which also facilitates the reading of more microscopic characters. Fire OS you hate or love it: on the one hand it keeps the entire universe of Amazon comfortably close at hand, on the other it casts an adult operating system (Android) capable of running great without customization.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

The only exponent of the XL size, the Korean tablettone justifies the extra diagonal inches (and the price decidedly over the top) with a destination of use dedicated to professionals and graphic designers. The very precise nib included it serves precisely for this: combined with the excellent UHD definition screen, it makes Note Pro a work tool, not recommended for those looking for a generic tablet. A tough processor, a large amount of RAM, support for microSD cards and a monstrous battery make it reliable in most situations; alternatively there are only iPads and the world of Windows.

Asus Transformer Pad Tf710t

Price: 499 euros

I will also have a few months behind me, but at the time of the release the last Transformer Pad was so far ahead that it was not out of place even in this comparison at the end of 2014. The design suffers a little from the time that passes, as does the operating system at Android 4.2. Yet the UHD screen still sends most of its diagonal opponents home, and the dockable keyboard transforms the Taiwanese tablet into a flexible writing tool (SD cards and USB sticks you can insert from the dock) and practically eternal battery life. Given the release at the end of 2013, you could also find it at a discounted price.

Apple iPad Air 2

The tablet that has reinvented them all still a unique product. In its fifth version it is the thinnest and most powerful, but the features that made it famous have remained intact: unsurpassed design, excellent quality screen and abundant dimensions and an operating system that is easy to use and beautiful to look at. But the strength of iPad not only iPad: based on a great product over time it created an ecosystem of developers (there really is an app for everything) and manufacturers of accessories and unmatched gadgets. And the tablet turns into a laptop, a sequencer, a tablet …
