PhoneArena Awards 2013: Best tablets

0. phoneArena 05 Dec 2013, 10:23 posted on

Tablets have come a long way, haven't they? Once regarded as little more than a rich man's toy, they are now more popular than ever, with millions of people worldwide relying on one for their mobile computing needs. They have become more affordable, more powerful, and much more useful thanks to the increasing number of apps built specifically for tablet use. But of course, not all tablets are made equal, and it is our duty to keep our users informed as to which slates are truly worthy of attention. That is why today we'll be taking a look at the very best tablets of 2013...

Because people with no brain buy it!

Kidding. That's something a jealous hater would say.
The iPad Air is an amazing tablet, as well as the other two listed!

I HOPE SO! I'm getting bored of seeing the exalted Apple iPad take #1 since its existence.

Unless of course one desires affordable (microSDXC) storage expansion as opposed to some US 100.00 just to go from 16gb to 32gb, or a much more video/movie viewing friendly 16:9/16:10 aspect ratio, or a higher resolution display, superior outside visibility, or built-in USB and HDMI ports, or hardware GPS capabilities that don't cost US 129.00 extra, et. al.

Anyway... Interesting how the section on the Nexus 7 was so full of 'snide little' comments regarding its looks, SoC performance, et. al.

Regardless... It's a fair enough listing, though the actual writing clearly shows signs of unnecessary bias and snark.

This comes to zero surprise to anyone with half a brain that the air deserves first place on this list, but I think the g pad should be replaced by the note 10.1 (2014 edition). idk maybe it's crappy...

I'd replace the GPad with not the Note 10.1 but THE one true productivity tablet: Surface Pro 2 (too pricey though)

G Pad is a beast it deserves to be in that list. I own one and I am very happy with its design and performance.

Lumia 2520 should definitely take the place of iPad Air.

You could always make your own Pro Apple only site so you don't have to read other people's opinions or views on anything but your own.

Dark agreed with the rating. Someone else didn't like the view of it. Take a second and read

47. JerryTime (Posts: 468; Member since: 09 Nov 2013)


Yeah I understand that. Then he suggested that another person (ArtSim98)make his own ratings. Hence my statement.

What's your point?

I get you JT. It's like people who tell those who disagree with American policy to leave the country. Can't people have different opinions without being told to scram? SMH

Sigh...no point in arguing if they don't even know what they are saying themselves-never mind me.

No way, Windows 8 RT is going to get meshed with WP8 because even Microsoft knows that RT was the wrong idea. iPad is a much more mature tablet and definitely deserves to be at the top of the list.

Who cares.. It's a toy compared to the surface2pro.

If you're looking for a true laptop experience the pro 2 is dead last in every category compared to any laptop in its price range.

RT is pathetic. Full 8 is good RT.
