Best media consumption tablet
Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9
With everything that was great about the HDX 7 and more, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 isn't just a great value, it sets the standard for a media consumption tablet.
Best small tablet
Apple iPad Mini (with Retina Display)
It's the iPad Air in a smaller more affordable package. And with an A7 chip in tow, access to Apple's still unbeatable App Store, and a razor-sharp screen, the Mini with Retina is the best small tablet yet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S (10.5-inch)
Samsung's best tablet to date and our top Android entertainment tablet.
Feature-rich, small, and powerful
Samsung Galaxy Tab S (8.4-inch)
With its slim design, fantastic screen, and oodles of power, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a superb smaller tablet, and a worthy competitor to the ever-popular iPad Mini.
