What is a tablet without quality apps? If you want third-party apps designed specifically for a touchscreen interface, nothing beats the iPad and its huge library of programs and games designed specifically for Apple tablets. The App Store is well curated and reviewed, offers an in-depth selection, and includes every popular app you can think of. If a wide variety of attractive apps that look good and work well on your tablet is your number one priority, then Apple is your best choice.

Android has made great strides in selecting apps, but it’s still not home to as much as Apple offers. It’s hard to say exactly how many tablet-optimized Android apps are available, but they are far fewer than Apple has. There are also apps for Android phones, which look neat on a 7-inch tablet, but less so on a 9- or 10-inch. Check out the 100 best Android apps for our top picks.
Amazon tablets don’t have access to the Google Play Store, so there are significantly fewer apps available. There are plenty of people who have hacked the Play Store on Amazon tablets, but that violates both Amazon’s and Google’s terms of service and cannot be considered a reliable solution. While they have their own app store, a subset of Google Play, you should consider Amazon tablets designed to be used with the apps Amazon recommends. You can also try Virtual Reality glasses (translated to Dutch: VR brillen huren) in combination with a Amazon tablet!
What size tablet do you need?
This consideration is a bit obvious, but size – both screen space and storage capacity – is important to consider. First of all, when you hear a term like “10-inch tablet,” it refers to the size of the screen, measured diagonally, and not the size of the tablet itself.
7-inch tablets are considered a small screen; 8.9-inch tablets and above are considered a large screen. Apple’s iPads, Amazon’s Fire tablets, and Samsung’s slates are all available in iterations on small and large screens. And more than ever, phones are blurring the lines with tablets. Foldable phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 can easily do double duty as tablets if you’re willing to pay a hefty premium. You can also connect an Apple Ipad with a Macbook pro to gather information via various devices. You can rent a Macbook pro at Flexitrent.
Screen resolution of a tablet
Screen resolution is also important, especially for reading ebooks and browsing the web. A crisp, clear display is key. If you are looking for a 10-inch tablet, look for a display with a resolution of at least 1,280 by 800 pixels.
The low weight of a tablet is a distinct advantage over a laptop, but with large screen tablets typically weighing about a pound, they’re nowhere near as light as smartphones. After holding one with one hand while standing up for 20 minutes, your hand will tire. Placing a flat on your lap, instead of leaning on a stand, can also be a bit tricky. And very few tablets fit in your pocket unless you’re wearing a really big jacket. If you want business, consider a phablet.
