Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 ( 8-inch, black)
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.
Acer Iconia W4-820-2466
The 8-inch Acer Iconia W4 has a few advantages that help it stand out from a crowd of similar devices, including great battery life and enough ports to support basic productivity. It's also much better -- and less expensive -- than last year's W3 model, so it earns bonus points for that.
Dell Venue 8 Pro
The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8
Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even at its low cost.
Asus MeMo Pad FHD 10 tablet
The Asus Memo Pad FHD 10 is a well-priced large tablet that doesn't compromise on useful extras.
Google Nexus 7 ( 2013, Jelly Bean)
Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 ( 10.1-inch, white)
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is a sleekly designed tablet but, with more powerful and cheaper options available, it feels like more of the same, rather than an upgrade.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 ( Jelly Bean)
It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet.
Acer Iconia W3-810-1632
The smaller 8-inch Windows 8 tablet is a form worth exploring, and the Acer Iconia W3 can be fun to use, but it's also buggy and held back by shortcuts and lackluster features.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ( White)
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a stunning tablet with a truly useful stylus, but it's not worth $400 unless you're an artist or prefer pen input.
