The Gadgets 360 Best Tablets page shows the top-rated tablets reviewed by us in the recent past. The tablets were launched less than 2 years ago, and have received a rating of 8 or above. When you bear in mind that the Gadgets 360 review is exceptionally exhaustive, so you can be assured that any tablet on this list is indeed an all-round performer.
Models listed on the Gadgets 360 Best Tablets page are sorted by their overall rating as well as recency of launch, which means the further down you go the lower rated the tablet, and those near the top are the highest rated. This also means among those tablets with the same rating, the ones that show higher up are those that were launched more recently. The page lists the key specifications, overall rating, and price of each tablet.

|Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 5G Specifications|
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1|
|Front Camera||12-megapixel + 12-megapixel|
|Rear Camera||13-megapixel + 6-megapixel|
The iPad mini (2021) Wi-Fi + Cellular has an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display that is larger than the 7.9-inch screen available on the earlier iPad mini. The new model is also powered by the latest A15 Bionic chip that is rated to deliver up to 80 percent faster performance than the previous generation. The new iPad mini comes with a 12-megapixel Ultra Wide selfie camera with a 122-degree field of view. It also includes support for Center Stage from the iPad Pro. At the back, there is a 12-megapixel camera sensor that is paired with a True Tone flash and supports Smart HDR as well as 4K video recording. The iPad mini (2021) Wi-Fi + Cellular supports Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 is a quality mid-range tablet with a focus on performance. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 SoC which offers good gaming performance and comes with a 120Hz display which makes the software experience feel quite fluid. The large display also supports Dolby Vision for a better viewing experience, while the quad-speaker system offers loud and clear audio which comes in use when consuming content and gaming.
The tablet does not come with any bundled accessories. However, the optional Pad Keyboard accessory does make the tablet more productive. The Smart Pen is another accessory which seems good enough for the creative crowd.
Battery life is also quite good as the tablet lasts over two days on a single charge. Charging the tablet is also relatively fast when using the bundled charger.
The 2020 iPad Air refresh has an all-new design that brings it more in line with the iPad Pro models than the mainstream ones. It has an all-screen design but there's a Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the top rather than Face ID for biometric identification. The USB Type-C port on the bottom replaces Apple's Lightning connector. You get Apple's new A14 Bionic SoC which has plenty of power for apps and games, plus beefed-up AI processing for on-device machine learning and security. You can choose between five colours, plus 64GB or 256GB of storage, and cellular-enabled or Wi-Fi-only variants. Apple also sells its Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil accessories that add a lot of functionality but are very expensive. The iPad Air (2020) has some quirks but could prove to be very convenient for lots of people, plus it delivers good value for money overall.
The Realme Pad is the brand’s first attempt at an Android-powered tablet. It offers capable hardware in a slim package at budget prices. All of this works fine provided you aren’t looking at it as a productivity device.
The tablet has a quality display which is sharp and is bright enough to handle direct sunlight. Keeping media consumption in mind, it offers Widevine L1 certification, which allows for full-HD video streaming quality. Adding to that experience is the quad-speaker audio setup that delivers sound that’s loud and clear enough enough to fill a room.
Software performance is quite smooth, but with just 3GB or 4GB of RAM, this tablet would be best used for running basic apps and not graphically intense games. Battery life is quite good, and the Realme Pad can last about a day and a half with about an hour of gaming and several hours of video playback.
Lenovo’s Tab P11 Pro is a slim, premium tablet that’s made of metal and glass. While it’s just 5.8mm thin, it still manages to squeeze in four speakers and a fingerprint scanner. It can connect to an optional keyboard case.
There are two 8-megapixel front cameras (including an infrared camera) for selfies, and a 13-megapixel primary plus a 5-megapixel ultrawide camera at the rear. Camera quality however is below average, but there is an LED flash at the back.
Audio quality is quite good, and it adds to the excellent Dolby Vision-certified 11.5-inch OLED WQXGA display. The tablet is a capable gaming device, but it lacks a high-refresh rate display.
Battery life is very good with a day and half of casual use, but it takes over 3 hours to charge the 8,400mAh battery. Lenovo oddly goes with a slightly customised version of Android 10, which looks almost stock. While the software experience is smooth for regular use, switching to Productivity mode can be a bit overwhelming for the hardware, which is why the P11 Pro isn’t a laptop replacement.
The Oppo Pad Air is the brand's first tablet entry in the Indian market. Oppo takes a budget approach with this one and focuses on quality instead of performance, making it into a tablet that is built for media consumption more than anything else.
Build quality with the metal unibody design feels quite solid and the designer plastic strip around the back gives it a nice touch. The 10.63-inch display isn’t the brightest we have seen, but gets the job done indoors.
Oppo has used a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC which is also found in some budget smartphones and it offers good enough performance while driving the large display when it comes to software, but just gets the job done when it comes to heavy 3D games.
Battery life is quite solid and charging speeds are average. Camera performance is below average and the same applies to video recording.
