"These tablets generally are outside of our main expertise as they are pretty much straightforward Windows computers."
this sentence, as an explanation why the most competent tablets on the market were left out of the "buyers guide" is the stupidest thing I ever read on GSMA...ever
I have a Nexus 7 2013 LTE version and can recommend it! Excellent tablet.
Where is Windows RT and Full Windows tablets....???
Not a complete article without those....
Look at the list of every Samsung tab cons. Hardly any!
That said, you can't really go wrong with a high end Android or Apple tab. I've not looked back since getting the iPad mini 2, but I'd be just as happy with a Galaxy 8 incher, or a Nexus 7.
I can recommend LG G Pad 8.3. The biggest flaw is battery which can be better and screen that can be little better.
I think that Nexus 7 and G Pad 8.3 are best buy tablets.
"Windows RT doesn't have enough apps, so we left it out" is very unprofessional for a mobile tech site like this. A good tablet is a good tablet period. My Lumia 2520 is buttery smooth, data reception is great, its productivity and multitasking user experience flies from the get go and it easily lasts 2 days of heavy use. All these are ideal traits of a thoroughbred ARM based tablet, not a stretched out smartphone like most of these devices.
Any USB OTG enables device can charge another one through the micro USB port.
I still don't see why a professional site GSMArena fails to mention any windows tablet in it's article. Of course the justification of RT is OK, low sales ratio doesn't mean NO ONE considers them. I am disappointed and this article is poorly made. If you people were ignoring RT, you should have highlighted the budget and extremely low priced Windows tablets which are out there in markets. Even though, Surface Pro is also considered a full fledged tablet with better specs than anyone here but the author failed to mention it.
This is much like a biased article to me. I am sorry but I have to say you guys are getting a bit biased against Windows as you don't also often perform researches while writing Windows articles. I am disappointed. I am almost ascertain this comment will be deleted but I hope you guys consider not 'dumping' Microsoft's products next time.
