Pixel densityPixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.

CPU speedThe CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.

Megapixels (main camera)The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.

Smaller, thinner, and much lighter than laptops, yet still providing a significantly larger display size than smartphones, tablet computers offer both computing power and portability. Whereas Apple and Huawei tend to reign supreme in terms of phones, Samsung leads that pack when it comes to superior tablets offering the best bundles of speed and features.

If you’re looking for the best Samsung tablets, you might think that they’re all pretty much the same, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Newer models aren’t always the best, and depending on how you use the tablet (for school, work, gaming, etc.), there are more than a few options available to suit your needs.

Display 

There are two main types of screens in today's tablets: LCDs and OLED/AMOLED displays. Higher-end Samsung tablets generally come with AMOLED displays, but some have LCD displays as well. Whereas LCDs are thin and light and have a low refresh-rate flicker, OLEDs (organic light-emitting diode displays) and AMOLEDs (active-matrix light-emitting diode displays) emit light directly. Therefore, the contrast ratios are very high. The display's response time is also much faster than in the case of LCDs.

Processor

The processor powers your tablet, making it a crucial component when comparing the best Samsung tablets. Most top tablets offer at least 8GB of RAM these days, but there’s more to a processor’s power than just the RAM. You’ll need to take a look at the CPU speed, which indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU.

Storage

Storage for a tablet is different from a Samsung smartwatch or even a phone in that most people use a tablet to take photos, store music, play games, and even work. If you plan on doing all of those, you’ll need to ensue the tablet has enough internal storage to hold all of your files and apps. However, Samsung tablets offer something that not all other brands do; an external memory slot enables you to extend the storage space of the tablet and easily retrieve data from the memory cards.

Camera

From video recording to built-in flash, today’s top Samsung tablets seem to offer it all. Take a look at the tablet’s camera specs if you plan on using it to snap photos or record videos (both of which you can do while enjoying camera-like quality results). When assessing the camera quality, be sure to check the megapixels for the front camera and primary camera, along with the maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera.

Battery life

Tablets are portable by nature; it’s what makes them so great as digital devices. However, there’s nothing worse than a tablet that won’t hold a charge or takes hours to fully juice back up. Battery power is the most helpful indicator of the battery life of a Samsung tablet. It represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life. It’s even better if the tablet comes with wireless charging capabilities.
