My Tablet Holiday Wish List – must have tablets
Merry Christmas, this is my compilation of must have tablet’s this holiday. A selection of the very best tablet that offers great value for the price.
Teclast X2 Pro
A powerful full size tablet powered by the same processor that runs the Macbook Air 2015. An Intel Core M processor which is twice as fast as any Atom processors in the market and also very efficient. The tablet also comes with 4 GB LPDDR3 RAM out of the box with an ample 64 GB eMMC Storage, expandable via TF Card support. Also equipped with a 11.6 inch IPS FHD or 1080p Display and support for Active Stylus (not the same as Wacom Stylus). Other notable features include a decent size battery, external NGFF SSD Storage support and standard USB 3.0 slots. Teclast is also known for reliability as well as top notch build quality. Currently, the Teclast X2 Pro retails at $359.
A bit cheaper but roughly identical specs to the Teclast X2 Pro, the tablet offers the horsepower of Intel Core M with 4GB LPDDR3 RAM and 64 GB SSD Storage, expandable via TF Card support. What give’s it an edge over the Teclast X2 Pro is the native support for Wacom Stylus (high sensitivity pressure levels up to 1024). Furthermore, the tablet comes equipped with SSD storage out of the box instead of an eMMC Flash, which is miles faster and more efficient. The screen also offers top notch 1080p FHD quality with great color reproduction. The battery life is also fairly decent and build quality is also excellent. Currently, the Cube i7 Stylus retails at $327.
Xiaomi’s new carbon copy of the iPad Mini gets a make over and now comes Full Metal build and a new Chipset powering the device. At it’s core, the tablet is equipped with Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor with 2 GB RAM. You also have the option to choose which operating system to include on the tablet, although a questionable feature was the lack of Dual OS feature on the tablet. You are stuck with what OS you choose the moment you buy. The tablet also features the new USB type C reversible connector for faster charging and faster transfer speeds. Currently, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 retails at $185.
Also a product of Teclast, the X16 Power Tablets are not necessarily as quick as their X2 counterparts but their design and build quality spell “Business Grade”. The X16 Power Tablet specifically has an overkill 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM, a giant battery, Active stylus support (not the same as Wacom) and excellent build quality. The tablet is design more for office use. Furthermore, the tablet natively comes with Dual OS Support (Android 5.1 and Windows 10) out of the box. At it’s core is an Intel Atom X7-8700 Cherry Trail Quad Core processor, which is basically a higher clocked version of the X5-8300. The tablet also supports magnetic dock for keyboard and standard USB 3.0. Currently, the Teclast X16 Power retails at $349.
On the other hand, the Teclast X16 Pro is a tone down version, and comes with Intel Atom X5-Z8300 Cherry Trail, the same with the Teclast X98 Pro. The tablet also comes with 4 GB LPPDR3 RAM. Aside from the CPU difference, the tablet has similar features with the Power version. Currently, the Teclast X16 Pro retails at $263.
Still from the Teclast family, the tablet is a reboot of it’s BayTrail counterpart. The design and ergonomics resemble iPad Air and almost nothing is change with last year’s version. The tablet now comes equipped with an improved Intel Atom X5-8500 Cherry Trail Processor with 4 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 64 GB eMMC Storage, expandable via TF-Card Support. The tablet also comes with a gorgeous Retina Display (similar to the iPad Air in terms of quality) and great build quality. The tablet now comes with Dual OS Support (Android 5.1 and Windows 10) out of the box. However, i did discover several weakness of the tablet, it still is a solid value if you want a good windows 10 tablet. Currently, the Teclast X98 Pro retails at $239
I know there are still plenty of tablets to choose from. However, more of those tablets are REBOOT’s (the same with Teclast X98 Pro). And thus, the difference only lies on the performance rather than on the overall tablet. If you want to compare other tablet’s to this list i have, you can visit here “Tablet Guide”, here you can find plenty of reboot’s as well as sub$100 tablets that are perfect as gifts this coming holidays.
