There are certain times when smartphones just aren’t enough. When you’re looking at recipes, watching videos, reading, or taking notes, it’s often much easier and more enjoyable on a larger screen. That’s why tablets are quickly becoming one of the top companion devices people own. With countless tablets to choose from, finding the right one can be difficult or overwhelming. To help make things easier for you, we’ve put together a list of our Top Tablets for 2023 featuring devices from the brands Apple, Samsung, Lenovo and Microsoft.

Best Android Tablet - Samsung Tab S9 Series

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 range is the best you can get from Samsung, and for many, that makes the top-of-the-range Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra the best high-end Android tablet on the market. This tablet packs an impressive spec list. The Tab S9 Ultra sports a 14.6” Dynamic AMOLED 2X display (60-120Hz refresh rate), runs on Android 13, and the base model comes with 12GB of memory and 256GB of storage. You can also add a microSD card for an extra 1TB of storage. With a tablet of this size and spec, it can easily fill in as a laptop replacement once you add the Book Cover Keyboard. Once connected, you’ll be able to use Samsung DeX on the tablet, effectively turning it into an Android-powered 2-in-1 device. If you’re on the fence about shelling out for a top-of-the-line Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 or Tab S9 Plus are also fantastic choices and a little bit easier on the wallet.

Best Apple Tablet - iPad Pro (With M2 Chip)

If you’re after ultimate power and performance, the iPad Pro is the one for you. The latest generation of this spectacular tablet is powered by an M2 chipset to provide you with desktop power in a tablet as small as 11-inches. Both the iPad Pro 11” & 12.9” have bright, beautiful displays with a 120Hz refresh rate, but the 12.9-inch steps it up a notch with a Mini LED screen that has a remarkable brightness, 2048x2732 resolution, and crisper, more vibrant images. If you’re planning to use your tablet for creative work or you’re heavily into tablet gaming, the 12.9” will be perfect for you. If you don’t need the best of the best, you’ll probably find that the iPad Pro 11” is the better option for you. It has its own perks such as being significantly cheaper, smaller, lighter, and more portable. If you have extra cash to spend and want to go all out on the iPad Pro experience, add an Apple Keyboard or an Apple Pencil and unlock more creative freedom and control. If you don't quite need all that the iPad Pro has to offer, check out the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini.

Best Windows Tablet - Microsoft Surface Pro 9

The latest addition to Microsoft’s lineup of 2-in-1 Surface Pro tablets is the Surface Pro 9. Over the years, it's been refined, tuned and perfected, and the Pro 9 raises the bar yet again. It features a large 13-inch 120Hz edge-to-edge display in a small, lightweight design that makes it perfect to use at home or on the go. It’s more than twice as fast as the Pro 7 with an 12th Gen Intel Core processor, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage, and built on the Intel® Evo™ platform. It also has a removable SSD and two Thunderbolt 4 ports. These performance gains, as well as the addition of Windows 11 and up to 19 hours of battery life, makes the Surface Pro 9 a super-powerful 2-in-1 and the best tablet choice for Windows users. To get the most out of this tablet and have it double up as a laptop, add a Microsoft Pro Type cover. If you’re creatively inclined, you might enjoy the addition of a Microsoft Surface Pen too.

Best Value Tablet - Lenovo Tab M9

To finish off the list, we thought we'd share a great value (and compact) pick! If you're looking for something thin, light, and affordable, check out the Lenovo Tab M9. It sports a 8.9-inch screen and is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 processor with up to 2.0GHz main frequency, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and super-fast WiFi to deliver the speed you need to stay entertained without interruptions. It also boasts enhanced audio, thanks to dual speakers tuned by Dolby Atmos, making it an all-around great tablet for entertainment! In addition, the M9 hosts a bunch of family-friendly features like parental controls, curated kids’ content, and TÜV Rheinland-certified eye protection to reduce eye strain. The Tab M9 isn’t the most high-powered tablet available but it’s affordable, while offering solid performance for the needs of most adults and teenagers, and will definitely do the job for kids.
