10 best Android tablets in the world

1. Amazon Fire HD 6

Small enough to be smartphone, it packs a punch

Weight: 290g | Dimensions: 169mm x 103mm x 10.7mm | OS: Fire OS | Screen size: 6-inch | Resolution: 1280x800 | CPU: Quad-core | RAM: 1GB | Storage: 8/16GB | Battery: value | Rear camera: 2MP | Front camera: VGA.
 + Compact size
 + Sharp screen
 - A bit too chunky
 - Awful cameras The Fire HD 6 is one of the most enticing android tablets to come from Amazon, mixing efficient integration with the Prime services and a compact footprint that makes it easy to drop in your bag.

It's no tablet king, but it does what it sets out to well, and considering its price tag the Amazon Fire HD 6 is difficult to knock. The cameras are worth avoiding, and the built in speakers aren't great, but as long as you can get over Amazon's slightly restrictive Fire OS and the lack of Google's services then the HD 6 is a perfect pocket slate.

2. EE Harrier Tab

4G internet on the go, on a budget

Weight: value | Dimensions: value | OS: value | Screen size: value | Resolution: value | CPU: value | RAM: value | Storage: value | Battery: value | Rear camera: value | Front camera: value

A decent price, good screen and solid design make the EE Harrier Tab a respectable budget 4G tablet. The cameras are pretty dreadful and the battery life pedestrian, but by essentially nailing the basics, the EE Harrier Tab is great to use 98% of the time.

3. Tesco Hudl 2

It's really cheap, but it's really rather nice Weight: 410g | Dimensions: 224 x 128 x 9.14 | OS: Android 4.4.2 | Screen size: 8.3-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1200 | CPU: Quad-core 1.83GHz | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16GB | Battery: 5710mAh | Rear camera: 5MP | Front camera: 1.2MP 

The inevitable follow-up to the excellent Hudl is just as good. At £99 the Hudl 2 combines similarly great value for money with a larger, higher resolution 8.3-inch 1920 x 1200 display, a 1.8GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

The Tesco Hudl 2 isn't a top tier slate, but it's excellent value for money and well specced enough that you shouldn't find yourself wishing you'd spent more.

4. Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

Samsung throws everything into the fledgling maxi-tablet category
Weight: 753g | Dimensions: 295.6 x 204 x 8mm | OS: Android 4.4 | Screen size: 12.2-inches |Resolution: 2560 x 1600 | CPU: Quad-core 2.3GHz | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32/64GB | Battery:9500mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2MP

Sometimes bigger can be better - and Samsung will certainly be hoping that's the case with the huge Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 which sports a - yup you've guessed it - 12.2-inch display.
As you'll see from the name, this slate falls into Samsung's "Note" series, which means it comes equipped with an S Pen stylus, and with such a large canvas to work with it can be genuinely useful. 

Unsurprisingly the Note Pro 12.2 isn't a small tablet, so it's not something you'll be carry around with you everyday, but with a meaty octa-core (yes, eight!) processor, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat OS it's a serious powerhouse capable of some very heavy lifting.

5. Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+

A Lenovo tablet that can do a little bit of yoga
Weight: 615g | Dimensions: 261 x 180 x 8.1mm | OS: Android 4.3 | Screen size: 10.1-inch |Resolution: 1200 x 1920 | CPU: Quad-core 1.6 GHz | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16/32GB | Battery:9000mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.6MP

Lenovo's Yoga tablets took a little time to get off the ground, but the Chinese company has really upped the quality in these flexible slates. The bulbous cylinder at one end of the tablet holds a massive 9,000mAh battery and also houses a small kickstand.

It means you can position the Yoga at almost any angle, which is great for watching movies. The 1920 x 1200 pixel screen resolution is rather nice, has plenty of brightness and is a major upgrade on the old model. Similarly, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC with four cores all clocked at 1.6GHz is also a serious upgrade from the weak processor used last time.

6. Samsung Galaxy Tab S

If you're after a tablet with a great screen... this is it
Weight: 467g | Dimensions: 247.3 x 177.3 x 6.6mm | OS: Android 4.4.2 | Screen size: 10.5-inches |Resolution: 2560 x 1600 | CPU: Quad-core 2.3GHz | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 16/32GB | Battery:7900mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2.1MP

The exterior design of the Tab S is nothing to write home about but it's thin and it's light and that counts for a lot when it comes to tablets. It helps the frame get out of the way of the screen, which is the real winner here.

Available in 8.4- and 10.5-inch variants, the Tab S range packs in a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, microSD slot, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front snapper and Android 4.4 KitKat. Both tablets have fingerprint scanners for added security, but the plastic body may put a few off with Apple's slates sporting a more attractive design.

There's a new Tab series on the block, in the form of the Galaxy Tab S2, but the original S duo are still a great buy - especially now they're a little bit cheaper.

7. Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

Solid specs in a compact frame
Weight: 270g | Dimensions: 213.4 x 123.6 x 6.4mm | OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 8-inch | Resolution: 1200 x 1920 | CPU: Quad-core | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 16GB | Battery: 4500mAh | Rear camera: 8.1MP | Front camera: 2.2MP

When it comes to watching video or playing games, the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact excels with a decent slug of power and its eye-pleasing display.
Add in the thin, light, waterproof body and you have a great tablet for long trips and boring work commutes which can be happily slid into a bag without taking up too much space or weighing you down.

The components inside the Z3 Tablet Compact are getting on a bit now, and it doesn't have the slickness of the 8-inch iPad mini 4 or Galaxy Tab S2 - but it's certainly still worth considering.

8. Google Nexus 9

Google's Nexus tablet is big in size and price
Weight: 425g | Dimensions: 228.2 x 153.7 x 8mm | OS: Android 5.0 | Screen size: 8.9-inches |Resolution: 1536 x 2048 | CPU: Dual-core 2.3 GHz | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16/32GB | Battery:6700mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.6MP

It's been a while since we last had a large Nexus slate and even longer since HTC went anywhere near a tablet, yet here we are with the HTC made Nexus 9. It was worth the wait too, thanks to a powerful 64-bit processor, BoomSound speakers, a long lasting battery and Android 5.0 onboard. It's found itself a fairly unique size point too at 8.9 inches. Too big to be considered a small or even medium sized tablet, but some way smaller than the 10.1-inch Android slates that there are so many of. Whether that's a good or bad thing is subjective but it certainly helps it stand out.

9. Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet

A stunning, waterproof tablet with a great screen
Weight: value | Dimensions: value | OS: value | Screen size: value | Resolution: value | CPU: value | RAM: value | Storage: value | Battery: value | Rear camera: value | Front camera: value

Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet is one of the best Android tablets on the market right now, ensuring the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and iPad Air 2 get a real work out. We'd like to see a 64GB option, but 32GB plus the inclusion of a microSD slot will suit most people, and while the cameras don't cover themselves in glory they're more of a vanity feature on a tablet.

The Xperia Z4 is a great tablet, and it's one of the genuine alternatives to the iPad. Android is still not the perfect ecosystem for tablets, but with a 2K display on the front and such a nice-looking design Sony has made something rather lovely.

10. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

The best slate a droid can get Weight: 256g/389g | Dimensions: 198.6 x 134.8 x 5.6mm/237.3 x 169 x 5.6mm | OS: Android 5.1 | Screen size: 8.0-inch/9.7-inch | Resolution: 1536 x 2048 | CPU: Octa-core | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 4000mAh/5870mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2.1MP

There are plenty of reasons to invest in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 - especially if you're after the best Android tablet on the market. It's reading and web surfing-friendly, while the new 4:3 screen and general size and shape is better suited for most things. Videos work better on its predecessor thanks to elongated aspect ratio - but they don't exactly look bad here.

You can pick the Tab S2 up in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants, to challenge Apple's iPad and iPad Mini ranges, with the smaller option being more portable and cheaper. Almost impossibly thin, pumped full of power and with a slicker version of Samsung's TouchWiz interface on board the Galaxy Tab S2 gives the iPad Air 2 a real run for its money.
