Which operating system is right for you?

Which operating system is right for you?

The first thing to think about when choosing a tablet is the operating system, as this determines how your it works, the app store you get access to, and how the tablet works and communicates with other devices.


Android offers a simple yet customisable way to personalise your table the way you want. From emails and social media to games and more, the Google Play Store has over a million apps to choose. From small-screen tablets perfect for browsing social media on the go to larger models ideal for streaming films and catch-up TV, there’s an Android tablet to suit every need.


iOS is exclusive to Apple tablets and smartphones, and is designed to work flawlessly with Macbooks and iMacs. Simple, pretty and featuring direct access to Apple’s App Store and iTunes, it gives you easy access to everything you want at the tap of the screen.


Windows tablets can be installed with all the software you use on your PC at home or at work, so you can work on projects, essays, emails and more between you tablet and computer with ease. You can even mirror your PC desktop on the tablet, so it’s like working on one device.

Fire OS

If you love discovering new books, films, music, and more, Amazon Fire OS is a great choice. It puts the Kindle eBook store, film, music, and apps at your fingertips as soon as you turn on. Fire OS gives your whole family a simple way to find new content. Whether they're into gaming, reading, or exploring the latest apps, there’s something for everyone. You can even manage your children's accounts to help keep them safe online, and to prevent them watching things they shouldn't be.

Advice and inspiration

Things to consider when buying a tablet

Screen quality

The quality of tablet screens is measured in pixels per inch (ppi), which uses the screen size and shape to provide a measurement.

Tablets with higher ppi measurements deliver more detail – perfect for watching movies, streaming shows or playing your favourite games.


A processor with more cores allows you to get more done at once. The majority of tablets feature dual- or quad-core processors, making them ideal for work, editing images and more. Higher processing performance means you’ll be able to do more with your tablet.


The memory size of a tablet will determine how much you’ll be able to store on it.

If you want to store lots of documents, songs, photos and more, you’ll need to look for a tablet with a larger capacity or an SD card slot that allows you to expand the storage.


All tablets feature built-in WiFi for easy access to the internet, with many also featuring Bluetooth for wireless pairing with speakers, headphones and other devices.

If you want to use your tablet on the move look for 3G and 4G connectivity, which works the same way as your smartphone to get you online almost anywhere in the country.


Battery life is important if you regularly use you tablet on the go.

It’s worth bearing in mind you may get a shorter battery life than stated if you regularly stream media, play games or browse with the brightness turned right up.


From colourful cases and bags to mobile broadband, there are plenty of ways to personalise and enhance your tablet or eReader.

Most cases are made to fit specific devices, so you can be sure of a perfect fit. Look out for cases with keyboards to turn your tablet into a fully-functioning workstation on the go.

Things to consider when buying an eReader


Backlit screens make it easy to read in low-light conditions, making them ideal for night reading. You can adjust the lighting level for comfortable reading and to improve battery life.


eReaders connect to the book store via WiFi or 3G. Built-in 3G is a great feature if you don’t have the internet at home or regularly use your eReader while out and about.


Storage capacity dictates the number of books you can store on the eReader. eBooks are small files, so you only need to consider a large memory capacity if you plan on storing hundreds of books at once.


eReaders have very long battery lives and can go for weeks, or even months, between charges. Battery life is usually based on half an hour of use per day, so if you’re a keen reader, you may see less than the listed figures.
