The Apple iPad is arguably the most popular tablet with a slick high-end design, but it's true strength lies within its App Store. Not only does it feature the most apps, but by and large the highest-quality versions of multi platform apps as well.
The iPad is not perfect -- it's expensive and there are no physical storage expansion options -- and if Apple's tablets don't do anything for you, there are plenty of viable alternatives. Keep clicking, tapping, or swiping through to take a look.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S is tailor-made for video watching on-the-go. Its pixel-packed screen, impressively large range of colors and unparalleled deep blacks will leave you mesmerized. With a microSD card expansion slot in tow, all movie and TV lovers can easily load all of their favorites onto the Tab S.
If you want ditch your laptop for a tablet, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the best replacement money can buy. Its keyboard cover is one of the best accessories to grace a slate and it's a performance powerhouse for all of your productivity needs.
The Sony Xperia Z2 is a waterproof slate that doesn't compromise looks for performance. The lightweight 10-incher rocks a super sleek design and offers speedy and smooth performance. The fact that it can also take a spill makes it a rare tablet with built-in durability.
Look for this one to get replaced fairly soon. For now, it's definitely one of the cheaper alternatives, but aside from its still impressive 2,560x1,600 resolution, its specs are getting a bit long in the tooth.
