The 20 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

The 20 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

Google hasn't had much of an interest in Android tablets since the days of the Motorola XOOM and Android Honeycomb. As a result, most of the company's apps aren't designed with tablets in mind, and third-party applications have largely followed suit. Sure, Android tablets can technically run all Android apps, but many of them have stretched-out layouts that were intended for 6-inch screens.

Google Photos finally looks okay on Android tablets

Even though millions of Android tablets are sold each year, and Chromebooks use many of the same applications through the Play Store, most of Google's apps are not optimized for large screens. Google Photos is one app that has always looked horrible on Android tablets, but that's finally changing.

Samsung's next Lite tablet could have 5G and come in two sizes

Samsung usually releases two Tab S slabs in a year and we're inching toward what would historically be the time for a "Lite" release. While we don't have any spec points to discuss at the moment, it's been figured that a mid-range tablet or even two are on their way, including the first in the category to connect to 5G.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 review, one month later: A great budget tablet with one annoying quirk

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 review, one month later: A great budget tablet with one annoying quirk

Android tablets have a tough time competing at the high end; iPads more or less single-handedly dominate that space. But if you're looking to spend a couple hundred bucks on something to watch Netflix in bed, you're probably not shopping Apple. You're probably looking for something like Samsung's latest budget tablet, the Galaxy Tab A7: it's cheap, it's got a nice screen and speakers, and the battery lasts for days. There's not a lot to dislike here.

Lenovo's modest new Tab P11 Android tablet starts at $230 and is ready for extreme accessorizing

For some of you, an Android tablet might be all you need — maybe just with a few mode changes like a dock, a folio, maybe even a pen. Lenovo has catered to this very peculiar subset for a long time and it's doing so again for 2021 with its latest Tab P11.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ review one month later: Flirting with affordability

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ review one month later: Flirting with affordability

Do tablets still fit into our vision of the future? Star Trek may have its ubiquitous PADDs, but here in the 21st century, tablet sales have been declining at a pretty steady clip since 2013. Even as some of that interest fades, we're seeing the release of some of the most impressive tablets ever made. Apple turned heads last month with its new iPad Air design, while Lenovo's got its crazy folding-screen laptop. In the Android camp, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S7 series this summer, and you'd be hard-pressed to argue that these aren't the best Android tablets anyone's produced.
