Tablet Reviews

It may seem like the Apple iPad currently has the tablet market cornered, but Amazon’s Fire tablets provide a cheaper alternative to Apple’s premium tablet. Oh, and Samsung also makes some tablets that are basically big versions of its Galaxy Note phones. If you’re looking for a tablet and need help sorting them all out, our reviews below should help.

The best tablet you can buy right now

As we pick the best tablet, we're focusing on the "tablet things" that most people want to do with a tablet. It should be good for watching video, playing games, and reading. It should also be thin, light, and have a battery that lasts long enough that you don't have to worry about it dying on your commute.
