10 thoughts on “7 Top Rated Tablets Everyone Should Buy in 2020”

  1. Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with us .I personally love Samsung brand products and have long used Samsung brand phones.And I’ve been thinking for a long time that my little brother will buy a tablet because he can learn a lot by using a younger tablet.And it used to be able to play different types of games.And I want to buy a samsung galaxy s6 for him and i think he would be very happy if i gave him this tablet.And this phone has plenty of RAM and ROM, plus Snapdragon will be able to play a lot of good quality games of my brother.I will be collecting it very quickly and sharing with you new things later.

  2. Hi!

    Your review of the best 2020 tablets was really exciting and revealing.

    I think if I were to  choose, I’d go for the Google Pixel Slate. I really fancy using Google products anyway. The 10 hour battery life was what I liked most. I would have gone for either the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 or Surface Go, but I don’t like the separate keyboard of the former or the low battery life of the latter. I would rather  fancy using the Pixel slate even without its option for external storage.

    In all the post was revealing. Thanks for the wonderful review.

  3. Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with us .I like to use a tablet and I think it’s a fun and enjoyable thing .So I purchased the google pixel slate provided in your article .It’s CPU – Completed 8th Gen Intel Core, Screen Size – 12.3-inch LCD, RAM – Up to 16GB, Storage – Up to 256GB, Battery Life – Up to 12 Hours, Weight – 731g So Easily Carryable .All in all it looks great to me and to me it seems like the best rated tablet .

    Also I found some more tablets through your article. Of these, the Apple brand is one of my all time favorites, and you must purchase it and share my new experience with you.

  4. Wow this is amazing! I love these tablets as they have got amazing features. For me I’ll go for that ‘2019 Apple iPad 10.2’ as it has marginally bigger screen, Smart Keyboard Cover compatibility and extra RAM though it’s not very different from last year’s iPad 9.7 which now runs IPOS. Thanks for reviewing these tablets, I love it!

  5. I love this laptop after visiting your website. Before long, I’ve been thinking about buying a laptop. But I can’t say why I can’t get a good quality laptop. After looking at your article I was encouraged to buy a Google Pixel Slate laptop so I want to buy this product. Battery backup is very good. It’s been my favorite I will share my experience with you using this product. Thank you so much for giving such a wonderful review.

    1. I know my review is short and brief, but I wanted to “get to the point” as many would say, and help readers see the focus areas to consider when purchasing these products. They are expensive so we need to think critically before committing to these mobile devices. 

      Thanks for your comment. Share your experience with me upon the use of your Google Pixel Slate. 

  6. Hi Luvoyo! I have been searching for a good tablet that can help me answer emails and create designs on the run but won’t make me break the bank. And after checking the options you have here, I believe the one that suits me best is Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. 

    You said it is a little heavy but compared to the other tables, they are all in the 400g range. And even the Google Pixel Slate is 731g. I’m probably missing something. What did you mean when in the negative remarks you say it’s “a little heavy”?

  7. Thanks a lot for such an amazing article about 7 Top-Rated Tablets Everyone Should Buy in 2020. I love using tablet. It’s an enjoyable and agreeable experience. Most of the work I do with the tablet. I have been thinking for some days that I will buy a new tablet because my old tablet has been seen problems for several days. I liked your reviews because you provide each tablet review nicely. You have awesome work for me. I liked the 2019 Apple iPad 10.2. So I will buy it. Thanks for the information and sharing. I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. Much obliged

  8. Thank you very much for sharing your review of the best laptops for the upcoming months. I think it is very essential to be very well prepared before deciding which laptop to buy(myself I did commit two mistakes by buying technology items before good checking and ended up, buying low and overpriced one) and your website does offer a perfect insight view, with the whole necessity someone should have before purchasing anything so valuable like a laptop. I like your pictures, the structure of your single reviews and the actual content as there is a really deep explanation of what the particular laptop is good for. I might need to buy a new laptop within a couple of months, and when that turns up to be actual I know where to go. Thank you!
