Tablets are impressive when it comes to keeping up with office work or staying entertained at times when your computer is simply out of question. In bid to make the experience better, many designers thought that making it bigger and considerably powerful would be a good idea. Apparently, the first assumption is right, the second isn’t.
While the Google Nexus 10, a whopping 10” slate is by all means powerful and reasonably priced, very few people prefer it simply because it is too huge. The quest for something that will perform the tasks of a tab without forcing you to get a practical phone has forced many smartphone manufucturers to quit upscaling their tab screen sizes in favor or multipurpose cross breed of a smartphone and a table. The offspring? A phablet.
Though the size boundary creating the upper and lower bounds between a smartphone and a tablet is still hazy, choosing the right phablet should get all your needs covered – and your hands less busy.
Here are top four phablets you should lookout for next time you go shopping
1.Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Currently, it is the best phablet from Samsung that we can comfortably crown as the best there is.
If you are interested in looks, its leathery derriere is just but a tip of the iceberg. On the practical side, a 2.3GHz 4 core Snapdragon 800 coupled up with 3GB of RAM will literally blow your mind. To crown it is a 5.7 inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen that has quite a reputation in the true-HD world. With an impressive battery life and a Stylus to make things more classy, this 5.7” is a perfect combination of phone and tab.
Though impressive, its successor, the Galaxy Note 4 would definitely be an overkill. With a Quad HD Super AMOLED screen whose resolution is at the range of 500ppi, it won’t be long before we have to revise this list.
2. Nokia Lumia 1520
If you don’t mind the OS, Nokia Lumia 1520’s 6 inch 1080p IPS LCD screen is perfect for playing videos and rendering some serious graphics.
To power it is an impressive 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip which works hand in hand with 2GB of RAM to deliver the desirable snappy performance that would satisfy the most demanding phablet users of the generation.
Though you might need some time to adjust to the mammoth 6”, this slim (8.7mm) phablet does look and feel premium. You can use Windows 8.1 on it, a perhaps Windows 9 and take amazing photos with its 20MP camera whenever you please.
3.Sony Xperia Z Ultra
The Xperia Z Ultra is quite a piece. At 6.4 inches, its just a few centimeters shy of the 7” mark – which many people believe to be the phablet threshold. With a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 and 2GB RAM, it is almost an equal competitor to the Note 3 (if you ignore its astonishingly inferior rear camera) with a slightly inferior price tag.
With the entire body made of black glass, no one can really tell the difference between the bezel and a screen whenever you are not playing anything. The Xperia Z Ultra sure does look good. It will make you feel classy, and perhaps get you noticed.
The first three are from famous brands in the market. They are as powerful as they are expensive. If what you desire is something sizeable, functional and affordable, then perhaps the Oppo N1would be a perfect fit for you.
1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 and 2GB of RAM behind 5.9 inches of 1080p screen and a lucrative price tag. That’s pretty much what you get off this phablet specswise. However, the fact that it has a 13MP camera that can swivel, a touch pad at the back and support for the CynogenMod means that you can play with it however you want without voiding your warranty. It is functional, affordable and unique.
While these four would be perfect options since the market has already tested and proven them to work, going for the Moto X or the iPhone 6 plus, which are both new gadgets within the acceptable 5 inch and 7 inch boundary will give the latest classy Phablets in the market.
