Who has the fastest tablet?

15 June 2015

Bitterwallet - Android 10" tablet from Next Have you got a tablet? No, not the medicinal kind - the sort which you rest on the toilet and watch TV shows on while you have a bath. The kind that you bought, thinking it would transform your life, but you didn't end up using very frequently.

Well, you might be wondering how fast yours is, compared to everyone else's.

Thank goodness for Which!!! who have done some tests to find out which tablet is the fastest on the market. It seems the champion is Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3.

If you though Apple would win, then you might be surprised to learn that there was a another device that was quicker than the iPad Mini 3 - the Tesco Hudl 2. Seeing as the Hudl is considerably cheaper than the iPad, that's good news indeed, for some.

"Our tablet speed test is a great indication of how fast tablets can run when downloading apps or using multiple functions at once,” said Which!!! editor Richard Headland. "Nowadays we expect everything in a swipe or a click of the button, so understanding how quickly a tablet is able to process information is important to buyers".

Here are the quickest tablets on the market, in order:

1. Microsoft Surface Pro 3 128GB i5
2. Apple iPad Air 2
3. Google Nexus 9
4. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 2014
5. Apple iPad Air 32GB wi-fi

6. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1
7. Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
8. Asus MEMO Pad 7 ME572C
9. Tesco Hudl 2
10. Apple iPad mini 3

    Given that the iPad mini 3 came in 10th there are 9 other devices quicker than it.

    A MacPro has a Geekbench score of 32,000, but it's not three times as fast for everyday stuff than an iMac. These stats are more for how many hours you can save off encoding a DVD.
