'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

What is the best tablet?

The best tablet is the 10th-generation iPad based on its battery life of up to 10 hours, 256GB of storage, and lightweight design. It's the perfect tablet for working or streaming movies on the go. The fairly affordable price tag also makes it a great choice for students and remote workers who need a mobile work computer. 

However, the best tablet for you really depends on what you need your tablet for. If you're looking for something strictly for entertainment, Amazon Fire tablets and most Samsung tablets are great picks. If you want something to create on, you can bet on Wacom for professional drawing tablets.
