Amazon Fire HD 8 (2018)
Its specificity is to run on FireOS, a fork of Android without the Play Store, but with the Amazon Appstore. However, the Amazon store is quite complete and we find the majority of the applications needed on a tablet. Its updated look and its affordable price ( from 99 euros on Amazon ), makes it a very interesting product. Especially with a refined look and much thinner screen borders.
Why Choose Amazon Fire Hd 8?
- Decent autonomy
- A quality / price ratio difficult to match
- A compact, practical format for reading
Ipad Pro (2018): The Best Tablet
Next to the iPad (2018), aka the historic Apple tablet, there is now the iPad Pro (2018) which completely transforms the famous tablet. It incorporates elements inspired by the iPhone X, such as a screen with reduced edges and Apple’s homemade facial unlocking solution, Face ID, while retaining those that made the success of previous generations of iPad Pro, such as Apple Pencil or the perfectly calibrated 120 Hz screen.
Apple Ipad Pro 11 (2018)

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018)
The iPad Pro (2018) is without a doubt the best available today. However, it comes at a cost: from 899 euros for the 11-inch version and from 1,119 euros for the 12.9-inch version. It is however a solution to consider instead of a laptop for the creative. The arrival of iPad OS also gives new impetus to the iPad which, more and more, is getting closer to a Mac with a touch screen.
Why Choose The Ipad Pro (2018)?
- For iPad OS
- Excellent performance with its A12X Bionic SoC

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6: The Best Android
After the Galaxy Tab S5e in the spring, Samsung split the Galaxy Tab S6 in late summer. This is the real new high-end tablet from the Korean company. It is therefore the competitor of the iPad in the Android world. iPad OS remains in our opinion the best tablet OS, but OneUI based on Android 9 defends itself well on this slate.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
The Galaxy Tab is a complete tablet with a 10.5 inch screen displaying 2560 x 1600. Unsurprisingly, it is equipped with one of these panels of which Samsung has the secret for brilliant colors and infinite blacks. The performances are also at the rendezvous with an 8-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz and 8 GB of RAM.
