Editors' Comments

Two new entries and both of them are in our Top 10: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 takes first place, pushing down both predecessors, the Tab S2 9.7 and Tab S2 8.0, from the list. Apple's new iPad climbs to third place.

1st

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 LTE (SM-T825)
Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 LTE (SM-T825)

Not high-end, but a really strong combo is the best way to summarize Samsung's Galaxy Tab S3 LTE. The Korean manufacturer's premium tablet has a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with HDR support. The S Pen is now also obligatory in the Tab S Series and is delivered with the tablet. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 that is not the latest model but still achieves a superb performance. Furthermore, 4 GB of working memory and 32 GB of internal storage are included. The latter can be expanded via a micro-SD card. The LTE version can be used as a phone and the Wi-Fi module is fast in the home network. The four speakers provide a decent sound and the battery life also convinced us in the test.

Unfortunately, there are some points that need criticism. Samsung does not install a high-end SoC, which excludes cutting-edge Bluetooth 5.0. The cameras are only average and the storage is relatively slow.

Pricecompare

2nd

Apple iPad Pro 9.7
Apple iPad Pro 9.7

Apple's iPad Pro 9.7 is a well-made combination of the iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro 12.9, which even comes with a similarly good camera as the iPhone 6s. Moreover, the True Tone display of the tablet supports the Apple Pencil. Optional LTE, fast performance, and up to 256 GB of internal storage leave almost nothing to be desired. The battery runtimes also convinced in our test. Unfortunately, the device does not support Quick Charge, so charging the battery takes a long time. In addition, the power adapter's capacity is too low and the steep price might keep prospective customers from buying.

3rd

Apple iPad (2017)
Apple iPad (2017)

Apple's iPad (2017) is not a premium tablet but is a beefed-up iPad Air 2 that is offered at a low entry price of 399 Euros (~$448). Although an SoC from 2015 is installed, only a few chipsets manage to outperform it. The customer can choose between a 32 GB (from 399 Euros, ~$448) and 128 GB (from 499 Euros, ~$560) storage. An extra 160 Euros (~$179) is demanded for the optional mobile network model, which can add up to a price of 659 Euros (~$740). Thus, the seemingly cheap iPad is not that affordable after all. It is also a bit too bad that the fully laminated screen known from the iPad Air 2 is not used, but rather the panel from the first generation that is highly reflective. Nevertheless, the product has a superb feel and its fast performance and long-lasting battery convince in everyday use.

4th

Google Pixel C
Google Pixel C

With the Pixel C, Google has produced an in-house design similar to the Pixel Chromebook. The tablet features an unusual display size, but it looks good and, together with its optional keyboard, is a powerful device for writing. The tablet appears to be very high-end and shines especially with its high performance and long battery runtimes. Moreover, it provides a modern USB Type-C Gen. 1 port. You should carefully consider the storage option when buying the device since the storage capacity cannot be expanded. In return, you'll get the latest version of the operating system with Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

5th

Apple iPad Pro 12.9
Apple iPad Pro 12.9

The Apple iPad Pro 12.9 delivers uncompromisingly high performance, which is far better than any other tablet's. Only the newer iPad Pro 9.7 can reach a similar level, but it falls slightly short. Once again, build quality and materials set standards. It is questionable whether such a s large tablet is needed. If yes, you can't get around the Pro 12.9. Unfortunately, a steep surcharge is due for the well-made pen called Pencil.

6th

Apple iPad Mini 4
Apple iPad Mini 4

Previous to its presentation, the Apple iPad Mini 4 was almost considered a dying species. At the Keynote, Phil Schneider only mentioned the small iPad in two sentences. Wrongly, as our review shows. Although the iPad Mini 4 cannot fully reach the promised performance level of the Air 2, it brings more than sufficient performance for all current tasks. Even demanding 3D games are not too much for the Mini 4. Compared to its predecessor, which Apple has already removed from its portfolio, it shines with the right improvements. These include a slimmer and lighter case, faster WLAN modules and especially the anti-glare display that sets new standards in outdoor visibility. In addition, the GPS sensor works excellently.

7th

Huawei MediaPad M3
Huawei MediaPad M3

Huawei's MediaPad M3 is an 8.4-inch multimedia tablet with a brilliant as well as high-resolution IPS display. The powerful processor ensures smooth system performance and browsing the web is also an enjoyable experience. Only the integrated GPU is brought to its limits in demanding games, which is also a result of the high screen resolution (2560x1600 pixels).

The tablet is perfectly equipped for media playback and strikes a good balance between weight and panel size. Huawei integrates good stereo speakers that provide decent sound on the go and the stamina of almost 10 hours is not bad, either.

We also liked the well-built aluminum chassis as well as the good memory equipment and the handy fingerprint scanner. It is a bit unfortunate that we only get a Micro-USB port.

8th

Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0
Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0

The Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 is the bigger version of the MediaPad M2 8.0, which was launched last year. It primarily targets multimedia enthusiasts and performs really well in this regard. The display is bright and contrast-rich and also great for traveling. However, those looking for high color precision will not be happy with the MediaPad M2, since its display is optimized for watching videos and, thus, shows the typical blue tint, and the color saturation is slightly too high. However, it's a great device for its purpose and the good speakers contribute to an excellent video experience. As the Huawei also comes with LTE, fans of streaming services will also get their money's worth.

9th

Xiaomi MiPad 2
Xiaomi MiPad 2

With the Xiaomi MiPad 2 a tablet from the Far East quietly entered our Top 10, which is not officially sold in Germany, but only available via imports. The look heavily resembles the iPad Mini, but the aluminum case does not house that much performance. Otherwise, the Chinese deliver a great tablet, which comes with a USB Type-C port. The colors of the display are not that good, but this is not annoying during everyday tasks. Moreover, the small storage capacity of 16 GB cannot be expanded. However, this is acceptable in view of the cheap price.

10th

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro 10
Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro 10

Those looking for a versatile and powerful multimedia tablet cannot go wrong with the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro 10. It comes with a high-resolution display and even features an integrated projector. While the flexible stand looks unusual, it holds the tablet well in portrait mode. In addition, the SoC from Intel makes for a very good system performance and the battery runtimes are nothing to sneeze at. Those who want to take notes quickly and easily will appreciate Lenovo's AnyPen technology, which allows using any metal object as a pen - regardless whether it is an ink pen or even a fork.

Only the color precision of the contrast-rich display could be better. In addition, the cameras are disappointing.
