8-inch tablets bridge the gap between Smartphones and traditional laptops. These snugly, handheld devices pack everything you can expect to find in a 10-inch tablet – just more convenient and a little bit comfortable to carry around. They are also the preferred choice to many tablet buyers, and it’s all for several good reasons.

For starters, these tablets are popular for their modern look, and for offering value and excellent screen resolutions.

They’re neither too big nor too small. If anything, they’re the perfect choice of tablets for people with a peripatetic lifestyle. Where you have to use your laptop, these handheld devices will keep you light.

It’s to be, however, noted that not all 8-inch tablets are created the same. Every time you’re out shopping or online browsing for your next tablet, you have to make sure that you’re equipped with the right knowledge to make an informed decision on what to buy.

Even with being equipped with what to look for while buying an 8-inch tablet, choosing the best of these tablets is not a finger exercise when you have a mountain of shiny tablets to sift through and make a pick.

Luckily enough, we did some little bit of groundwork for you by digging through the trenches for the ten best 8-inch tablets on the market today.

8-inch Tablet Buying Guide. What to Look for When Buying an 8″ Tablet?

First, you have the option of buying an Android, iOS, or Windows tablet. Android is the most preferred choice here because you can easily download the apps you have on your handset to your tablet. The same can be said about iOS tablets, only that it’s not as customizable as Android. 
 
Tablets do offer a fantastic resolution. However, to enjoy more pixels, you must be willing to spend more. In which case, any tablet that comes with a resolution of 1080p will be stacking 1920 x 1080 pixels. That should be the tablet you buy. But if your budget is a little bit constricted, and you’re not that hang up on screen resolution, then a 1280 x 800-pixel screen should be able to get the job done. 
 
Another thing worth considering while you’re out shopping for a tablet is storage. You want to make sure the tablet you buy has enough space to store your media files, videos, and movies. With Android tablets, you have the option to expand your storage. Apple tablets, however, do not allow you to use additional storage. But they do come with impressive storage space, mostly ranging from 64 GB to 256 GB. 
 
Lastly, a good tablet supports the use of sim cards. This is essential for data connection, considering some of the places you go don’t have a Wi-Fi connection.
