Over the years we’ve seen a significant increase in the amount of gaming that is played on tablets and other mobile devices.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z

The super-thin tablet from Sony comes in at under 7mm, the Tablet Z also incorporates Sony’s rugged and tough technology which means it’s dust resistant and very sturdy when it comes to handling the device. The tablet can also be submerged underwater for up to half an hour without damaging it at all. This basically means it’s the ideal tablet for some bath time gaming. It also includes a stunning-looking 1920×1200 pixel 10.1-inch screen, which is not quite as good as some of the other ones on our list, but it’s still extremely sharp with beautiful vibrant colours. The device sports a 1.5GHz processor which is backed by 2GB RAM, which makes it a very fast performer as did the 8MP camera which also comes with a range of Sony-related photographic extras.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

This year’s edition of the Galaxy Note which is the 2014 edition has an impressive 10.1-inch touchscreen with a very sharp resolution of 2560×1600 which is the best resolution of all the tablets on this list. It’s also very sensitive with a massive 1.9GHz quad-core processor which is then backed by 3GB RAM to make sure there’s plenty of power so you’re able to run the latest high-performing HD games, and again, it’s the fastest tablet on the list. The device is also very lightweight, while at the same time a very solid one, with a nice grip able back, there’s also a stylus as well that fits into the side if you want to use it. It’s also running the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and there’s also an 8MP camera on the back as well as a 2MP camera on the front.

iPad Air

The latest iteration in the iPad line is the thinner and lighter iPad Air. The device is 30% lighter than its predecessor and includes a 9.7-inch screen which is the smallest out of the three tablets. It also doesn’t have the best screen quality but it is better than the previous iPad, the pixel count is still 2048×1536 but the colours are a lot more accurate and vibrant. The device also has a 1.4GHz processor which feels very fast and has no problem playing the latest games, with improved frame rates that begin to make it feel more like a laptop than a tablet. The iPad Air continues to be one of the best tablets that have currently have world longest lasting battery life and it also has a decent 5MP camera on the back and a 1.2MP one on the front.
