Tablets have come a long way in recent years, making them viable choices for people needing something to work on – or play games on. In 2014 there are plenty of great gaming tablets, and this article will narrow it down to the three best, for both the lighter graphics of a casino game like roulette, to the demands of something like Rage of the Immortals.
Google Nexus 10
The price of this tablet depends on whether you want the version with 16 GB (£319) or 32 GB (£389) of internal storage space – which could depend whether you prefer small-scale games like Angry Birds and themed slots, or ones like the aforementioned fighting tournament game Rage of the Immortals.
Either way, they will look fantastic on the 10-inch screen with superb 2560 x 1600 ppi pixel density. You don’t get better gaming screens than this one, although a downside is the fact that the A15 processor is dual, rather than quad-core. The quad-core Mali T604 graphics processor should compensate for that though.
Sony Xperia Z2
Another 10-inch tablet, but one that offers a thinner, lighter body (439 grams) than most of this size – making it ideal for those games where you have to hold the thing for ages (think strategy games like Rymdkapsel or online casino poker at www.gamingclub.com/ca/casino-games).
You also get Android 4.4 Kitkat OS and quad-core Andreno 330 processor with 2.3 GHz, so it is powerful enough to cope smoothly with the sophisticated graphics of strategy and action games these days. The pixel density of 1920 x 1200 is not as good as that of the Nexus 10, but will only be noticeable on games with really high end graphics.
The slimline, lightweight build of this Apple tablet matches the Xperia Z2 for comfort levels when gaming over lengthy periods, although the 9.7-inch screen is slightly smaller. Pixel density is much higher though, at 2048 x 1536, so if you are playing an App Store game with quality graphics (for example Infinity Blade 3) it will look better than ever on this latest Apple tablet. Throw in an excellent battery and you have a classy tablet that is at its best when being used for equally classy games – although the £399 price tag may put off those without deep wallets. Any of these tablets would represent an excellent choice for the discerning gamer, although the iPad Air really is impossible to beat if you can make your budget stretch to it. From the crystal clear image quality to the strong battery, it has everything needed for the best possible gaming.
