Why you need a tablet May 24 2016, 0 Comments

A tablet can be very useful, with various uses and advantages above a regular smartphone, but it can never replace a smartphone. For example, most of them don’t have a SIM card slot, so you have to depend on Wi-Fi for data. I would still advise anyone to get one for the following reasons:

Bigger display

For watching videos, it’s better to do it on a larger display, even the larger phones with 5-inch displays can’t beat a 10-inch display. Some can be smaller, though, at about 7-inches so it is easier to handle but still larger than a regular phone.

External storage

With a USB adapter, you can connect a flash drive to your tablet when needed. Say, you’ve got some documents on a flash drive and would like to send it via email, you no longer need to go through a computer, instead, just connect it and it will show up on your device.

Connecting to an external hard drive, however, might not be possible unless your hard drive has an external source of power because the power from your tablet’s port might not be sufficient; is it however more than in a smartphone.

Easier typing

It’s got a bigger display, thus easier to type on than a phone. However, you can connect it to an external keyboard, support the device itself, and you have yourself a tiny laptop. For other office documents, it’s certainly easier to read documents and prepare PowerPoint presentations on than a phone.


This one’s pretty straightforward, bigger screen, more fun. Connect it to a gaming controller and it is as good as a gaming console on the go. Some tablets even have very good GPUs capable of running intensive games such as Asphalt and Assassin’s Creed, so you can get excellent graphics.

You don’t have to bother with controllers, though, most android games don’t require one, but a large screen offers more functionality on a game as Clash of Clans. However, I found it difficult to play Temple Run and Subway Surfers on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.

what next

There aren’t many models of tablets, and the latest addition, the Tab 4, has great features yet it’s still very affordable. If you are looking for a great addition to your collection of devices, this could be a wonderful item. It shall offer you all the features above and much more.
