The Bottom Line It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get. The improved S Pen goes a long way to making this high-end tablet worth the extra cost, but if you're not sold on the stylus, it's easy to find a better deal. The new iPad Mini somehow shrinks down the iPad Air into an even more compact package, sacrificing nearly nothing. It's more expensive than before, but it's also the perfect smaller tablet.
