Truth be told, a glamorous, newly minted tablet has been replacing some of the best spiral notebooks we’ve used (you know, old school).
Not only do we want one for making to-do lists, watching YouTube videos and scrolling on Pinterest, but a quality tablet — especially one you can easily grab on Amazon — is one of the best investments you can make. (Related: best smart TVs).
That said, we rounded up the 10 best tablets you can buy on Amazon in 2022. Along with the best laptops and computers the retailer has to offer, these trusty handhelds are equally as exciting to unwrap.
Oh, and they make a fabulous holiday gift (if you’re shopping early like us). Whether it’s for your dad or your partner, consider this your electronics guide that you can always have on hand (in short, bookmark it).
While you’re at it, check out our guide to the best kids tablets and e-readers to pair with your purchase.
The all-new Amazon Fire Tablet is one of the hottest new releases the Amazon has yet to come out with. Its 7″ touch screen has a 30% faster quad-core processor and you can customize your storage options (either 16 GB or 32 GB). Plus, you’ll have up to 10 hours of battery life before it needs another charge.
Much like the brand’s best-selling Frame TV, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A8 Android Tablet has a stunning look that’s less than $250. This fairly priced buy boasts a 10.5″ LCD screen, a fast-charging USB port and a Galaxy Ecosystem Experience, the latter allowing all of your Samsung devices (phone, computer, the works) to connect to each other.
If you love Amazon devices but desire a larger screen, the Amazon Fire HD 10″ Tablet is worth the buy. Not only does it make a great holiday gift but it comes in three other colors (including pink — we repeat — including pink) for you to choose from.
We’re all heart eyes for the Microsoft Surface Pro 7. If you’re on the fence between a laptop and a tablet, this is your best bet. Namely, it carries 128 GB of storage (in other words, you’ll never run out), a 10.5-hour battery life and stunning graphics.
We think the Dragon Touch Notepad K10 Tablet is a hidden gem on Amazon. Specifically, its all-white design makes it look sharp and modern, while its Android interface is easy to use. It also has an eye-care mode that automatically adjusts and optimizes the backlight (less work for your blue light glasses to do!)
6. Apple 2021 iPad, $280, original price: $329
When we think of tablets, we think of Apple — it’s just that simple. Pick up its No.1 best-selling 2021 iPad for a stunning, device-compatible option that you can’t go wrong with. Plus, it can hold up to 256 GB of storage.
Transform your tablet into a laptop with the Windows 11 Tablet. Though a splurge, it has a unique, elevated platform for attaching a keyboard. If you don’t want to use it at your desk, you can then remove it from its dock and carry it to bed. We love it, to say the least.
For a budget-friendly option, consider the Lenovo Tab M8 Tablet. It looks like a smartphone and is one of the most compact options on this list. With 32 GB of storage, a stunning 8″ display and a refined look (thanks to the metal cover), it’s a great find.
We are genuinely obsessed with the GrandPad. It’s a tablet designed for senior citizens to make it that much easier to use technology (we should have invented it, TBH). With easy to use icons to call someone, check emails and view photos, life has never been easier.
The Google Android 10″ Tablet is less than $100 and worth the buy for its vivid display. Its crisp images coupled with its Bluetooth-supporting capabilities (oh, and excellent camera) make it a nifty find if you’re looking for a new tablet.
