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

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. It works well with Windows, so is a great choice if you also use a Windows based PC or laptop.

iOS

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

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.

Advice and inspiration

Things to consider when buying a tablet

  • Processor

    Screen quality

    Tablet screen quality is measured in pixels per inch (ppi), a measurement which takes different screen shapes and sizes into account.

    A tablet with a higher ppi displays images with more detail, which is perfect for watching HD films, streaming TV and playing games.

  • Ram

    Processor

    Most tablets feature dual or quad core processing. The more cores a processor has, the more you can do at once, so if you plan to use your tablet for work, editing photos or anything more than everyday browsing, look for a tablet with decent processing performance.

  • Smart TV icon

    Storage

    The amount of memory a tablet has determines how many files, apps, songs, films and photos you can store.

    If you plan on saving a lot of content, look for a tablet with a larger capacity or one with expandable storage via an SD card slot.

  • Storage

    Connectivity

    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.

  • Icon Needed

    Battery

    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.

  • accessories

    Accessories

    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

  • Icon needed

    Backlight

    A backlit screen means there’s nothing to stop you from reading in low-light conditions. The light level can be adjusted for comfort and to help you get the best out of your battery life.

  • Processor

    Connectivity

    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

    Storage

    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.

  • Battery
