The Which? top choice tablet of the month: March 2018

We've reviewed plenty of tablets over the years, from the original Apple iPad in 2010, to the numerous impersonators and innovators that have followed since. 

We know the frustration of spending hundreds of pounds on the latest bit of tech kit, only for it not to do what was promised in the ad.

In recent years, Android tablets have fallen out of favour, with Windows 10 models becoming a more popular choice for those looking for an Apple iPad alternative. There may be fewer to choose from, but we've found a great model (actually, an entire range of models), that we think are well worth your time. We've listed the premium model below, which offers a fantastic, large-screen tablet experience. 

We've also listed a much cheaper option, which is experiencing even further reductions in the Easter sales. It's not quite a Best Buy, but we don't think it should be passed over, as it comes pretty close, and the price is bound to grab your attention.

Android tablets aren’t quite as ubiquitous as they once were, but we still think there’s plenty of mileage in the operating system. This recognised computing brand has proved us right with its latest tablet, offering good performance, a great Full HD screen, and an excellent battery life of around ten hours.

One of the cheapest tablets in our test, this isn't quite a Best Buy but it's a smart choice for anyone on a budget. Battery life is a real selling point of this inexpensive tablet, as it has more than enough stamina to last for a day out of the house.

Pricing, recommendations, and test scores correct as of March 2018.
