Samsung Galaxy Tab S4
This is more or less an upgrade from the Tab 3. Its screen size has been expanded to 10.5 inches and it now has a longer battery life as compared to its immediate predecessor. Unfortunately, it also happens to be way pricier than the S3 tab as well. But, that’s no surprise, is it? Anyway, the Samsung Dex designed for desktop interfaces looks like a really like a cool idea. However, its performance issues, questionable optional keyboard and its non-touch-friendly User Interface prevent it from actually being a complete laptop or desktop replacement.

It comes with the S Pen stylus included
Microsoft Surface Pro
Okay, can a tablet device really completely replace your home PC or laptop? Oh well, for us here at Gadget Gang we think it still happens to be a highly debatable topic. However, for now, let’s talk about one that has managed to come really close to being exactly that. The Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet.

Like all the other tablets mentioned on this list that make no bones over their price tag, the Galaxy Book is no exception. It has strong performance capabilities, long battery life and an excellent display screen. Its most noticeable downside is that when multitasking for long periods of time the device gets hot. Also, if the keyboard case isn’t sitting on a surface that isn’t sturdy enough the whole device gets wobbly. Other than that this is a wonderful mobile device.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9
Apple makes another entry on to our list with the Pro 12.9 tablet. No one really does this tablet thing better than Apple does. It runs iOS 12 which, but it could’ve been made a little better if they used MacOS.
