Should I buy a Samsung tablet?

What we think: Samsung is a household name in electronics. It's a serious contender to Apple's crown as the most successful tablet manufacturer in the world. It's released more than 35 unique models over the last six years and provided annual updates to a great number of them - Samsung shows no signs of slowing down its output any time soon. 

The vast majority of Samsung tablets run Google's Android operating system, although it's also recently moved into the Windows 10 market too. Be sure to double-check what OS the tablet you're looking to buy runs on before you make a purchase to avoid disappointment.

Samsung tablets often come in multiple sizes (such as eight-inch or ten-inch), with storage capacity variants (such as 16GB, 32GB or 64GB). Some even have the choice between wi-fi only and 4G capability, so you have even more options. While very convenient, more storage and 4G functionality will cost you extra.
