Great tablets to take abroad

If you’re heading off on your travels and want something to keep you entertained, there’s really no need to lug a full-sized laptop around with you any more. The latest tablets are light and powerful, with battery-life and inbuilt storage capacity getting better all the time too.

Will you want to watch a Netflix show from the comfort of your hotel room? Or make a long flight more bearable with your favourite mobile game (with flight mode enabled, of course)? A good tablet will let you do it all. If you’re on the lookout for one, here are a few that we think are worth considering.

Huawei Media Pad M2

The Huawei Media Pad M2 is the perfect tablet for keeping yourself entertained on holiday. It’s especially good for watching movies on, thanks to the large 10.1-inch Full HD display, and two side-speakers that produce Huawei’s patented “super wide sound”.

The Huawei Media Pad M2 is more than just a movie machine though. Its 13MP rear camera takes clear photos even in low light, and the 5MP front-facing camera has a wide-angled lens to fit even more of the gang into selfies and video calls.

With a battery life of up to eight hours, you’ll be able to watch videos and play games on your Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 10” throughout the day. Dolby Audio technology gives you crystal-clear sound, and there’s also a kickstand to keep it upright on a table or sunbed.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7”

The Galaxy Tab A has a compact and lightweight design, so you can easily carry it onto flights with your hand luggage. The 7-inch display may not be the largest on this list, but it’s still a great size for watching video, web-browsing and playing games on. And because tablets with smaller displays tend to use less power, battery life is an impressive 12 hours.

If you’re travelling with young kids, then you’ll appreciate Kids mode. Not only does it offer lots of fun and educational content, but it also helps to protect youngsters by restricting access to unsuitable apps and tracking their usage.

You can also have some fun with the Galaxy Tab A’s 5MP camera. It’s packed with lots of features to help you edit your pictures, and there’s even an option to create animated GIFs.
