4. Samsung Google Nexus 10 Tablet – Best For: The Google Purist
The Nexus 10 Tablet may be old news to some, but to many it is still one of the top tablets on the market.

The Dual core 1700 MHz ARM Cortex-A15 still provides plenty of power for running apps, web surfing and gaming alike. The best part of the Nexus 10 is that it is a Nexus device. This means the Android KitKat operating system comes right out of the box, plus all future Android updates will hit the Nexus 10 as soon as they are released..
