Check out how to choose a high-performance Android tablet!

From here, let's check the points you want to pay attention to when choosing an Android tablet.

It can be said that the recommended points are roughly the same for any tablet, not just Android.

Keep the following points in mind to choose the perfect tablet for you.

How to choose a high-performance Android tablet

In order to use a tablet comfortably, it is necessary to pay attention to the specifications to be installed.

If you choose a tablet with low specifications, the operation may become slow or stuttering, and you will not be able to use it comfortably.

Also, be careful not to choose a low spec tablet as the app may crash.

By the way, among the tablets introduced this time, Yoga Tab 13 and Galaxy Tab S7 have the highest specs.

Conversely, the BOOX Nova Air is a high-performance tablet for books, but it should be noted that it is not high-performance for games and movies.

Tablet display sizes range from 7 inches to 13 inches.

Since the size of the main unit depends on the size of the display, please check carefully if you value size.

If portability is important, you should choose 7 to 8 inches, and if you want a large screen display, you should choose 10 inches or more.

When choosing an Android tablet, we recommend that you also pay attention to the version of Android that it is equipped with.

Even if the latest version of Android is released, it cannot be used until the manufacturer updates it.

Therefore, it is recommended to choose the one with the latest OS installed at the time of purchase.

As of January 2022, the latest Android OS version is "Android 12".

Unfortunately, there are no tablets with Android 12 pre-installed yet, so if you want to buy now, pick a model with Android 10-11.

There may be many people who want to use the Internet without using tethering while away from home.

In that case, please choose one that says "LTE compatible" or "SIM free".

LTE compatible tablets can use mobile lines by directly inserting a SIM.

However, please note that the price is higher than the Wi-Fi model.

When choosing an Android tablet, we recommend that you keep these points in mind.
