It’s the year’s end, and many see this period as a time to reflect on the gains and losses of the year, thereby preparing their minds on what to focus on in the coming year. We are bringing to you the best tablets of the year 2015; tablets that have really been part of our lives, tablets that have made us go “WOW”.
iPad Air 2
Speaking of a tablet that really got lots of reviews, the iPad Air 2 did pretty well. The tablet features the right balance between the weight and the size, it comes with a bright, crisp display and it sports some really amazing features. The tablet runs on iOS 9, making it the perfect tool for those who love taking their office everywhere they go. The tablet has a single speaker, and because it isn’t as loud as the iPad Pro many even complained that its $440-$630 price tag was too high. It comes with its good, bad, and ugly, but the one year old iPad Air 2 comes with the perfect mix of style, look, performance and weight.
Google Pixel C
A tablet that comes with a compact aluminum design and a sturdy feel, the Google Pixel C is one nice device that we all witnessed this year. The device is slim and it has a very solid Bluetooth keyboard that can be used as the tablet’s cover. The device also sports a long-running battery that serves one for longer hours when fully charged. The Google Pixel C runs on Android’s latest version, and it sports a pretty fast performance level. The screen is bright, sharp and very colorful, and its graphics are simply top-notch. While all the features are enjoyable, some customers have complained that the tablet is quite heavy whenever it is attached to the keyboard, and since it didn’t come with the iOS operating system, many feel they will not be getting the thrill of seeing new games first as many big-name apps arrive on the iOS before reaching Android. But whatever the case may be, this is the best Android-tablet one can get as of today.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 comes with a bigger screen and a higher screen resolution, but its body is slimmer than that of last year. The device’s pen and keyboard are also improved; coming with the latest Intel processor makes this tablet a smart buy. Although it sports some nicer features, the Surface Pro 4 fails to come with a Type Cover Keyboard, meaning you may have to buy a cover keyboard separately; a downside of the Surface Pro 4 is also the battery which doesn’t last for a day.
The Google Nexus 9
Coming as the first tablet to run Android Lollipop 5.0, the Nexus 9 will be receiving timely updates and it will always perform steadily even when you run many apps on it. Switching between apps is quite easy and it’s always easy to operate. The downside? Its highest memory capacity is 32GB and there is no slot for a microSD.
