A tablet's operating system plays a pivotal role in defining what it's capable of. Apple's iPads typically offer the slickest and most streamlined experience of the bunch, but they also lack some of the versatile features and deep customisation available on other platforms. Android tablets are usually the cheapest options on the market, packing more power and flexibility than a similarly-priced iPad albeit without the promise of everything "just working" as it typically does on an Apple product.
Windows tablets are mostly for folks who want all the functionality of a fully-fledged PC in a more-portable form factor. You'll typically pay more for a Windows-based tablet, but you'll have access to all the programs, tools and even games that you would on a regular desktop PC while you're on the go.
Bigger isn't always better when shopping for a tablet. True, large displays are great for streaming movies and playing games, but all that extra bulk comes at the expense of portability. Not only that, bigger screens consume more power, so you'll typically get less battery life out of a 10-inch tablet compared to a slimmer 7-inch one. Since portability is a defining characteristic of a tablet, making sure that its battery will last long enough for your needs is vital when comparing your options.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances.

If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category.

Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.

Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
