- Bright, crisp display
- Sturdy design
- Compatible with Windows Software
- Ultra portable
- microSD support
- Keyboard case not included
- Only one USB port (and it’s USB Type-C, not Type-A)
If you’re looking for a well-designed productivity or media consumption device for both work and play, the Surface Go is a great pick -- just be sure to consider the added price of the Type Cover keyboard.
- Beautiful display
- S Pen included
- Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos
- Plenty of storage
- Lightweight, attractive design
- Dex app support so-so
- Mediocre cameras
- Small keys on keyboard case accessory
If you are willing to wait for more apps to support the Dex desktop mode, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 offers one of the most compelling Android tablet experiences today -- although it comes at a premium price.
- Great battery life
- Good performance for most tasks
- New and improved hands-free Alexa integration
- Horrible cameras
- Limited app selection
For a fraction of the cost of other tablets, the Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017) offers a great display, good performance and excellent battery life. If you can overlook the weak camera and limited app selection in Amazon's app store, it’s an excellent purchase.
- Bright, colorful display
- Blazing performance
- Solid build
- Light enough to hold for extended periods
- Apple Pen support
- Lack of storage options
- No microSD support
- Apple Pen and a case will increase the price
- No smart connector for accessories
The Apple iPad 9.7 (2018) might be the perfect iPad option for everyday use. It’s big enough for productivity or movie watching but small enough to easily stash in your bag or hold while you read. Apple Pen support is also great -- but will add to the price.
