The highlight of each tablet
it’s time to check out the best tablet options for sale in the national market for those who want to have the best experience possible, whether with an Android or an iPad.
The tablet market is currently quite lukewarm without major releases, but it is still possible to find interesting options for each type of consumer.
And as we do in all guides, we always look for the most cost-effective products. Models are listed in order of price and this may change with the constant variation of offers.
Apple iPad 7
Apple recently renewed its main line of tablets and the iPad 10.2 gained the A12 Bionic chip, even on the new iPad Mini, but other settings are the same as on the 2019 iPad. At present, it is worth investing in the 2019 model, which currently delivers better value for money.
The A10 Fusion chip is the same as the iPhone 7 launched back in 2016. It may seem weak for today, but it can run any app or game for iPadOS. Here you have a larger screen than the iPad Mini, a good amount of memory, and the same resolution as the rear camera, but with a lower front. In terms of technology and connectivity, the only difference is the Bluetooth version. On the other hand, the battery is considerably larger.
We started our guide with the iPad Mini, the most compact tablet on our list. It has a 7.9-inch screen but has wider bezels than Samsung’s rivals. In place of an OLED screen, you get an IPS LCD panel with a lower resolution but still delivers great image quality.
It comes equipped with the A12 Bionic chip, which is even present in the iPad 8 that recently hit the market and more powerful than the A10 Fusion on the iPad 7, which is listed below. The Mini costs the same as the older-generation, larger iPad — so if you want to spend less than R$4,000 between two tablets, you’ll have to decide what’s more important to you: a big screen or a faster processor. Overall, the two are quite similar and deliver the same experience with iPadOS.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7
The Galaxy Tab S7 is the most advanced Android tablet on sale in Brazil, being Samsung’s 2020 model. It comes with the Snapdragon 865 Plus, Qualcomm’s most advanced hardware available today. The screen is not Super AMOLED like the Tab S6, but it has a 120 Hz panel for greater system fluidity.
Other settings are similar between the two generations, including the resolution of the cameras, amount of memory, and connectivity technologies (except for Wi-Fi 6 in the latest). The battery has grown to handle the 120 Hz screen that uses more energy, but the two should deliver close autonomy.
Apple iPad Air
The iPad Air was also renewed in 2020, being a more compact version than the iPad Pro but larger than the conventional iPad. Here you have the A14 chip, even on the iPhone — unlike the iPad Pro, which has an exclusive chip for greater computing power.
supports theThe iPad Air brings an improved camera compared to the previous generation and supports Apple Pencil. It is also compatible with the Magic Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio. The model can be found on the national market in five color options and features a 10.9-inch screen with True Tone and a wide P3 color tone.
Apple iPad Pro 11 com M1
Moving on to the most advanced lineup of the Cupertino giant, we have the iPad Pro 11, as the smallest version of Apple’s new advanced tablets. Of course, Apple’s launches cost a fortune, and with this iPad it would be no different. It comes equipped with the M1 chip, which is Apple’s most powerful solution today, especially in graphics.
Its screen has a higher resolution than the Samsung model and it earns points for bringing differentials such as the exceptional performance delivered by the Apple M1 chip, the well-rounded iPadOS, support for the Apple Pencil (not included in the kit) and a generous 11″ screen with a resolution of 2388 x 1668 pixels.
Apple iPad Pro 12,9 com M1
Are you looking for a tablet to abandon your notebook? The iPad Pro 12.9 is the tablet with the biggest screen on sale in Brazil. It is the superior version of the previous model, and it brings an even higher resolution panel and the same 120 Hz, for an experience superior to that of any Android tablet.
The configuration is the same between the two models, including the Apple M1 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and various storage options. The set of cameras delivers the same quality as current iPhones and still offers ToF 3D with a LiDAR scanner, which should equip the most expensive iPhones this year. And just like the Galaxy Tab S6, the iPad Pro has stylus support.
