If you are considering purchasing a new tablet, you will notice that in the last few years the options have greatly expanded due to the large popularity of the product. This means that you will be able to find anything ranging from a very budget friendly model to a high end piece of technology depending on what you are looking for. Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind when looking at an android tablet, no matter what you plan to use it for.
Although the most popular display sizes for an android tablet are 7 and 10 inches, there are also smaller options available in mini-tablets. When considering which tablet is right for you, pay attention to the screen size and think about what you will use it for. If you plan to mostly use the tablet at home, you should opt for a larger screen as transporting it will not be an issue. A larger screen is also a great idea if you are planning on watching videos. If you want portability, however, a 7 inch or smaller screen may be ideal.
The operating system on the android tablet has evolved over the years so you want to be sure to select a more recent one. These systems are referred to both by number (such as 2.2) and name (such as Honeycomb) so do some research before choosing your tablet. If you only need to use basic functions and don’t plan on installing many applications, an older OS may be fine, but a newer one is always recommended.
Storage And SD Slot
One of the most important things to consider when looking at an android tablet is the storage. Keep in mind that music and applications can take up a great deal of room, so it is a good idea to opt for a tablet that has a micro-SD slot that will allow you to expand the memory to a larger size.
If, like most people, you are planning on using your new android tablet on the go, you want to make sure you opt for one with a good battery life. Although you can always take with a wall or car charger, it is better if this is not necessary. Battery life is especially important if you will be using the tablet at work or school or if you plan to take it on trips to provide entertainment while traveling.
