Thinking of getting a tablet? Buying the best tablet may not always mean that the ‘best’ is also what’s best for you.
In order to suit your needs to the highest possible standard, you need to choose a tablet that contains everything you need it to have, in order to ensure your efficiency. When out shopping around for a new tablet, make sure you take these into consideration.
- Operating System – this is the first feature you need to be aware of, and possibly the most important. An operating system is one of those things you can do nothing about; you can’t change it or alter it and if you’ve already purchased a tablet and quickly realized you don’t like your OS, then it’s already too late. Do your research to avoid regret. There are four operating systems circulating the industry today from the very popular iOS and Android, to the Microsoft Windows which is steadily growing in popularity, to the Blackberry which is steadily losing its zing. Each of these operating systems have their own exclusivity when it comes to features and applications and it is important to be aware of what these are, in case you will need something specific.
- Memory – ask yourself what you are going to use this tablet for. Is it to store document files for the on-the-go business man; or to take with you on travel and take loads of pictures and videos? Are you going to share this tablet? If so, how many apps per person sharing might be downloaded? Different tablets have different memory capacities, ranging from 1GB all the way up to 500GB. Get enough to suit your needs as increasing memory is sometimes not possible in some tablet selections.
- Screen Size – screen size can be an important feature that matters. If your tablet will be used more for reading or document files, you might not want a smaller screen as this will surely give you hassle by having to zoom in and out all the time. Bigger screens are also more suitable for children if the tablet will be used for games purposes.
- Resolution and Camera – more for the kind of person who keeps his tablet personal by making it a storage area for pictures and videos. If you are the type that likes to take pictures and videos, a high quality resolution will definitely be a must.
- Speakers – for people that use tablets to keep tabs on their staff, employees, or colleagues while on the go with applications such as Skype, Google Hangout, or other chatting connectivity. Speakers need to be of a good quality to create ease in conversation and communication. Alternatively, speakers are also useful for people who like keeping music on their tablets or use it to watch movies.
- Battery Life – another important factor to consider. When on the go or traveling, battery life should be taken into the greatest consideration. How long will you be out for before being able to gain access to a charger? Your tablet will need to last for that amount of time at least.
