10 best tablets: a composite rating for August 2017

Apple’s tablets are so surely nesting in the top ten of our rating that I want to ask the question: how did the Huawei and Samsung brainchilds in the form of MediaPad X2 and Galaxy Tab S3 LTE models get there?

However, the answer is known to us, and a high estimate confirms this, saying also that the above-mentioned “tablets” are really good representatives of their class of devices and can compete with “apple” monsters on a par with.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5: the coolest iPad

With the excellent results demonstrated in the test categories “Display”, “Equipment” and “Management”, the 10.5-inch Apple iPad Pro is located at the top of our tablet rating. This is the fastest iPad of all, and test results can only confirm this. During the tests, the local 6-core processor demonstrated its full strength. For example, in the benchmark 3DMark IceStorm Unlimited, the result was 54 534 points, while Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, which takes the third place, received 26 285 points in this benchmark.

Huawei MediaPad X2

With a diagonal of just 7 inches, the Huawei MediaPad X2 is one of the smallest tablets in our rating. Nevertheless, it is quite comparable with those that are larger: a clear display has a resolution of 1920×1200 with a pixel density of 323 ppi. Due to the high brightness (478 cd/m2), work on the street in bright sunlight does not interfere. The contrast ratio of the chessboard of 134:1 and the maximum contrast of 1295: 1 is also impressive.
