Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro

6. Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro

You'll buy it for the integrated projector

Weight: 666.8g | Dimensions: 246.9 x 179.1 x 4.7mm | OS: Android Marshmallow | Screen size: 10.1-inch | Resolution: 1600 x 2560 | CPU: Intel Atom x5-Z8500 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | microSD slot: Yes | Battery: 10,200mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 5MP

Integrated projector
Great audio and screen
Heavy
Glitchy UI

With the Yoga Tab 3 Pro, Lenovo has delivered a fairly unique Android tablet that includes a projector inside and has generally strong multimedia skills. Its large 10.1-inch screen is one of the bigger ones on our tablet list, but that projector and all of the other components make this a weighty option. Nevertheless, you're not going to get a more convenient tablet and projector combo anywhere else.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

7. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.4

A high-res screen and speedy performance is a potent mixture

Weight: 265g | Dimensions: 198 x 134 x 5.6mm | OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow | Screen size: 8.4 inches | Resolution: 2,048 x 1,536 | CPU: Exynos 5433 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32/64GB | microSD slot: Yes | Battery: 10 hours | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2.1MP

Excellent screen
Good battery life
A little behind on design
Small on-board storage

For those who are in love with Samsung's lineup of Galaxy smartphones, this is the tablet for you. The most affordable variant in the Tab S line comes with an 8.4" inch screen, but houses the same powerful specs as its 9.7" counterpart.

When it was introduced it 2015, we called it "serious competition" to Apple's iPad and the claim still stands. The Galaxy Tab S2 features a polished aesthetic and a fairly competent set of specs, but only recently has this been at a price that makes it an excellent tablet for those with less cash on hand.
