What Hi-Fi? 15/03/2022 Tom Bailey

With so many seasonal sales, there's never been a better time to grab one of the best tablet deals. But with so many devices on offer, which tablet is best for you? Here's a quick rundown...

Apple's iPads offer high-quality displays, good sound and slick iOS software – but they're not the cheapest. If you're on a tight budget, Amazon's Fire HD tablets could be for you. These nicely-priced slates offer decent screens and tons of apps. 

Samsung's classy Android tablets are a good option for both work and play. Top-of-the-range models, such as the Galaxy Tab S7+, can rival the iPad Pro. Heavy gamer or business user? Consider Microsoft's high-end Windows-powered tablets, which boast ultra-fast processors and sharp displays.

Apple recently announced the new iPad Air 5, complete with faster processor and optional 5G. Something to keep in mind.

Right, now the fun bit. You'll find 2022's best tablet deals neatly arranged below...
