The best Android tablets in 2018: the best slates running Google’s OS

When it comes to searching for the best Android tablet, there are fewer options compared to a few years ago where Google’s operating system was popping up on slates from almost every major manufacturer.

The tablet market slowed down since, and those still producing Android tablets have reduced the frequency of launches, but that means quality has also improved as new devices are no longer being rushed out.

While the selection of new Android tablets isn’t as large as it once was, and nowhere near as large as the selection of Android phones, there’s still some great ones to choose from.

Android is one of the main rivals to Apple’s tablet range which includes the new iPad Pro 11 (2018), iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) and iPad (2018).

Some Android tablets have 10-inch screens, others seven, some land somewhere in between and a handful even push the boundaries past 10 inches. There are also big differences in battery life, processing power, RAM and even the software each slate is running.

And even once you know what specs you’re after there are plenty of not so great options, so to help you avoid buying a dud we’ve put together this list of the best Android tablets around.

They cover a range of options and we’ve included a rundown of the specs, the pros and the cons, so you can see at a glance what’s right for you.
