Tablets can be used for a lot of things: it could be a portable video player, a handy note taker or a cool e-book reader. But with all those motion and orientation sensors embedded on a tab coupled with good graphics, we are likely using them as our game machines. Which of the ones currently out in the market are the best gaming tablets? Check them out after the break.
#5 Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7
This baby’s screen size and resolution make every Android game look good. The Galaxy Tab 7.7’s AMOLED display has a contrast ration that is so good you wouldn’t want to take your eyes of it. The tablet also looks very tough with its aluminum rear but remains light and thin.
#4 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
No, the stylus did not bring this tablet on this list. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is among the most powerful Android tab in the market today thanks to the quad-core Exynos 4412 processor. We couldn’t find any good game that utilize the S-Pen pretty well but who cares? You already get a large, good-looking tablet with great speed.
#3 Google Nexus 7
There is no other quad-core tablet that is cheaper than the Nexus 7. It is the best tablet under $300 and also one of the most powerful Android tablet. With a 7-inch screen, it is also the smallest tablet in this list. And oh, it also runs the latest Android version, Jelly Bean.
#2 ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700
If you love to connect Xbox 360 or PS3 controllers to your gaming tablet then you might like the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. But this is not the only reason why it is the best Android gaming tablet around. Its 1.7 GHz quad-core processor is more than enough to run all the best looking games in the Google Play Store. Its screen is also good enough but if you’re fed up with it, you can always connect the Infinity to any display with HDMI.
Recommended Games: All Android HD Games
I would give the iPad the edge over the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity simply because iTunes have better games than the Google Play Store and the lack of Android ports for some iOS games. Besides this, the iPad undoubtedly has the best display on this list and its quad-core graphics processor trumps every other graphics chip out there. And with iOS app developers taking advantage of these traits, the iPad is the top gaming tablet today.
