Best Small Tablets for 2018

March 23rd, 2018 | Posted by rreeve in Android | Apple | Tablet - (0 Comments)

A good tablet should offer its users a larger display than a smartphone, and more portability than a laptop. Tablets make for great kiosk displays, and custom software can often be loaded onto a tablet rental before an event that requires a lot of small screens in a whole lot of places.

A lot of recently produced  tablets have been transitioning to the two-in-one tablet design, where tablets often have their own detachable keyboards and maybe even have a stylus to make the tablet a more versatile, multi-purpose, laptop-like device.

 

While being able to use your tablet as a mobile typing-capable workstation is nice, sometimes you may just need portable rental tablets for your convention (maybe you have various workshops scattered throughout the building that your attendees need to take devices to), or if you are thinking more personally, maybe you just want a small device you can take on the plane to read your books on or watch your shows while you travel.   

 

Whether you are looking for portable tablets to rent for a business event or if you are looking to buy a portable tablet that you can take with you on vacation, here is a list of the five best small (9 inch displays or smaller) tablets on the market.

 

  1. iPad Mini 4

 

While I am not an advocate of Apple’s OS on desktops and laptops, I can strongly endorse the stability and ease of use of its mobile iOS system. The iPad Mini 4 encapsulates Apple’s iOS in a 7.9 inch display that offers a brilliant resolution. As with most new Apple technology, the iPad Mini 4 also boasts two excellent cameras.

 

  1. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8

The antithesis of Apple’s  white iPad Mini, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8 is a sleek black device with an 8 inch display. The device’s super AMOLED display makes it quite the looker. For anyone looking to purchase a small tablet for themselves, this tablet also features a custom fingerprint scanner that you can use as a login security measure.

 

  1. Huawei MediaPad M5 8.4

New tablet launches are scarce, but the Huawei MediaPad M5 is just that. The upcoming MediaPad M5 is a followup to the MediaPad M3, which was a widely praised Android tablet.

 

The M5’s screen has a 2560×1600 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio which makes it a great device for watching videos on. However, there is one massive drawback which also makes it not really all that great for video watching if you don’t have the proper adapter: the M5 does not have a traditional headphone jack. If you need a device that is headphone compatible without an adapter, maybe consider looking for a different device first.

 

  1. Asus ZenPad S 8.0

The third Android tablet on our list so far, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 is a good alternative to the MediaPad M5 if you are looking for a similar device that actually has a headphone jack. Yes, that is a big deal to me if you couldn’t already tell. The ZenPad has an 8 inch display, a 1536 x 2048 resolution, and an average battery life of eight hours.

 

  1. NuVision 8” Tablet

 

While maybe not as deserving as some other options to be on this list, the NuVision got a spot because it is unique and it fills a void in the tablet market. The NuVision is a tablet that runs on Windows 10, has an 8 inch display, and a 1920 x 1200 resolution.

 

If you need a tablet with the windows OS, the NuVision series of tablets may be your best hope for a while if you are still looking for a small, portable device.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 rentalThe Samsung Galaxy Tab is one of the best Android tablet contenders against Apple’s iPad, and with good reason. The Galaxy Tab offers a viable alternative to the iPad as it is just as compact and lightweight as Apple’s flagship tablet. In addition to that, it comes in a variety of different configurations and sizes, allowing you to have a greater array of devices to choose from than the iPad.

As far as features go, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab comes with two cameras, a front-facing and rear-facing, allowing you to easily capture pictures and video of yourself or others or even video chat or hold a video conference with others.

Another great feature of the Galaxy Tab is the live panel home screen. The live panel home screen is a customizable home screen that allows you to have access to to real-time data updates on apps and widgets, which means you will always have the latest info whenever you need it. The customizable home screen also allows you to have a truly unique experience from other Galaxy Tab users as you can personalize it to your heart’s content.

The Galaxy Tab also comes with HSPA+ and WiFi access, allowing you to stay connected wherever you are with fast and stable connections. This means you can browse the internet, download apps, run apps and do anything else you could possibly want at lighting fast speeds.
