Hi guys, welcome back!
Ho..ho..ho.. Christmas is about to arrive guys. And that means, in the
next few weeks, every corner of your town is gonna be decorated with
many beautiful lights and Christmas trees all over the place, including
your house as well. But what exactly is the best thing to do in this
holiday season besides decorating your Christmas tree and hanging out
with your family?
If you ask me, i probably would advise you to start getting some new
contents like movies, music or games on your tablet. But the question is,
what if you don‟t have any tablet at your disposal?
Well, if that is your situation right now, then the best solution for you is
of course buy a tablet before the holiday starts.
But you‟re probably confused right now about what kind of tablet that
you might want to pick up this holiday season. As a normal consumer
who are looking for a tablet, you might think that iPad Air 2 or iPad mini
with Retina is a great choice, right?
Well, you‟re probably right about that. However, besides these 2 Apple‟s
tablets, there is still a lot of other great options out there from other
different brands that i believe are also as great as iPads. This is why i‟m
here ready to help you.
Below, i will show you 21 great quality tablets from varied different
manufacturers all across the world, including the iPads. But i probably
won‟t talk a lot about these Apple‟s tablets because – state of the
obvious -, they are simply great quality tablets, in terms of design, build
quality, experience and bla.. bla.. bla...
That's why, in the list below, i‟ll put more focus on other tablets besides
iPads. But don't worry, these iPads will still be included in the list.
Okay then, without further ado, here you go, 21 great quality tablets
that you might want to buy this holiday season. Enjoy!
1. Nvidia Shield
Specs: DirectStylus 2, 8.0 inch Capacitive touchscreen 1920 x 1200 pixels, Dual bass
reflex port audio, microSD Memory Card slot for up to 128GB, Internal 16 GB, 2 GB
RAM, 5 MP rear-facing HDR camera, 5 MP front-facing camera with HDR, Android
OS 4.4.2 KitKat, Quad-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A15 Nvidia Tegra K1, ULP GeForce
Kepler 192-core GPU, 19.75 Wh Li-Ion battery
If you‟re looking for a great quality gaming tablet that currently has the
BEST gaming performance on the market right now, then your
destination is definitely Nvidia Shield Tablet ($299.00).
This tablet actually just launched around few months ago, but this tablet
is just amazing and superior than any other rivals on the market right
now, even the new-gen iPads. And that‟s mostly because this Nvidia
Shield Tablet is just great in the whole aspect and offers a lot of great
benefits that any other tablets don't.
First of all, this tablet is powered by an extremely strong Tegra K1
processor, coupled with a staggering 192-core Kepler GPU, plus 2GB of
RAM. According to many benchmark tests, not only did this processor
manage to deliver 3 times graphical performance as Apple‟s iPad Air (A8
SoC), but it‟s also capable to bring the same graphics power of today‟s
desktops or PCs on a tablet device. Can you believe that?
So with that being said, then Nvidia Shield Tablet is definitely ahead of
most of the competitors out there, in both performance and graphics
power. But the more impressively is, this NVIDIA‟s homemade tablet is
also able to play some PS3 and PC ported games, like Trine 2, Half Life
2, Unreal Engine 4 demos and some other titles from console/PC
So yes - Nvidia Shield Tablet is the best gaming tablet out there right
now, alongside Xiaomi MI Pad and Google Nexus 9 (which both are also
powered by Tegra K1 processor). And the other great thing about this
device is, NVIDIA also releases a separate Xbox-alike controller – which
according to many reviews, it works great on this tablet -, which can be
paired together with Nvidia Shield Tablet using the Bluetooth
connection. So in terms of gaming experience, this tablet is just
unmatched by other rivals and even the iPad Air.
Not only that, besides great for playing games, Nvidia Shield Tablet is
also a great device for taking notes and even drawing pictures. And
that‟s thanks to stylus that comes packed on this tablet. If you haven‟t
known already, the stylus of Nvidia Shield Tablet is also as great as the
S-Pen on Samsung GALAXY Note devices, especially when it comes to
The touch response is really fast and every result occurs in real time onthe-fly to the screen, plus its thickness can be easily controlled manually
according to your pressure on the screen. Not only that, it also has the
palm-recognition feature, which will prevent your palm from being
registered on the screen when using the stylus.
So long story short, the stylus of Nvidia Shield Tablet is just AWESOME.
And the more impressively, you can even draw some professional
paintings with this stylus.
The spec sheet of this tablet is also one other strongest point of Nvidia
Shield Tablet ($299.00). It has an 8-inch display sporting the 1080p full
HD resolution, 5MP cameras front and back (which take great shots by
the way), microSD card slot, LTE, 2GB of RAM and a bunch of other
So you‟ll make no mistake if you decide to buy this tablet, even if you‟re
only looking for a basic media-consumption device. This is why i put
Nvidia Shield Tablet in my top choice of tablet this year. It‟s just top
notch in the whole aspect, even than the iPads.
2. Google Nexus 9
Specs: 8.9 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen 1536 x 2048 pixels, 4G LTE, Dualcore 2.3 GHz Denver Nvidia Tegra K1 64-bit Chipset, Kepler DX1 GPU, 2 GB RAM,
Android OS, v5.0 (Lollipop), No Memory Card slot, 16/32 GB Internal storage, 8
MP rear-facing camera LED flash, 1.6 MP front-facing camera, xxx , Nonremovable Li-Po 6700 mAh battery
Besides NVIDIA Shield
another Tegra K1 tablet
Google Nexus 9, which
branded tablet under the
Tablet aforementioned above, there's also
coming from other manufacturer. This one is
is manufactured by HTC but it‟s a GoogleNexus flag.
However, unlike NVIDIA Shield Tablet above – and Xiaomi Mi Pad -, this
Google Nexus 9 ($399.99) is powered by a more powerful dual-core
Tegra K1 Denver processor
32-bit quad-core Tegra K1
Xiaomi Mi Pad. So when it
Google Nexus 9 will be
with 64-bit architecture, as opposed to the
processor inside NVIDIA Shield Tablet and
comes to performance, it‟s no brainer that
more superior and powerful than its 2
Google Nexus 9 comes with Google‟s latest and greatest Android 5.0
Lollipop – which is the world‟s first tablet that ships with Lollipop out of
the box -, (but has been followed by NVIDIA recently with the release of
Android 5.0 Lollipop for its NVIDIA Shield Tablet a few months ago).
So in terms of performance and experience, this new Lollipop update
could really help a lot in making this tablet run much even faster and
smoother, plus more efficient in battery life.
Unlike NVIDIA Shield Tablet, however, this Google Nexus 9 doesn‟t
come packed with stylus – along with its technology. So if you want a
note tablet that is also a great gaming device, then you might want to
switch to NVIDIA Shield Tablet instead. It may have a lower-resolution
screen or 32-bit processor than Google Nexus 9, but i believe this
NVIDIA‟s tablet will provide more benefits than what Google Nexus 9
has to offer.
