A multitude of signs such as 16:10, 16:9 or 4:3, diagonals 7 -, 10.1-inch and indirect, different manufacturers, different resolutions … No wonder it can be confusing. Saturated market offers a huge amount of variations tablets, each of which is good, but not everyone will be best for your specific application. Let therefore, they work with the various diagonals in a variety of applications.
Think about what you need
What you will mostly use the tablet?
Counting from the smallest, in the statement, we considered models:
- 7-inch Plug Impact 2;
- 8-inch Omega Meteor;
- 9.7-inch Prestigio MultiPad 9.7 Ultra Duo;
- 10.1-inch Overmax Steelcore 10 + II.
As you can see, we took into account the most popular current formats. We thought also to include Iconii Acer A1-810, but this model – although 7.9-inch diagonal – has an identical resolution and only a slightly higher density of pixels from Omega. Moving on to the point – there is not comparing specific models, while comparing files, diagonals and specific uses to which they may see their best. We focus on designing the startup screen and the ability to place widgets on them readable. Then move on to browse the web – check that the diagonal gives us the best and most readable content without scrolling. Then we hit the movies, touching also on ease of use, mobility and other subjective matters. We realize that every tablet needs to do something different and hard to find two of the same members. Therefore, we will not tell you which format is best, what is the most versatile – it's your decision. However, we hope to dispel any doubts about the aspects that you can follow before buying specific hardware.
Home. Where will you put the most information?
Icons, widgets, gadgets
It happens quite a simple matter – the largest number of elements that get round the tablet, which has the highest resolution. Apart from this aspect, and looking only to the format, we can conclude that the 4:3 offer us greater flexibility in the placement of widgets and icons. More can be seen in the menu, as in the case described 4-3, in the horizontal position, we have access to 42 applications (1024 x 768), while in 16:10 could fit 40 (1280 x 800) and 16:9 on the plow – 28 applications (1024 x 600). The differences are not large, but it's hard not to consider them felt. [Nggallery id = 392 template = techmaniak] Let's go to the home screen – the main where you land after you unlock the tablet. Widgets, icons, watch … The clever layout of you are able to lay here a lot of different elements, providing quick access to your favorite applications. So let's look like they will do a variety of tablets in different configurations. Below you will find signed screenshots:

Internet, meaning "of what what"
Bigger does not mean better
When Apple presented the iPad Mini, spoke of "a better experience" when browsing web pages. But wait, what is They treated? What was that about? Pointing device, Phil Schiller explained that in conjunction with Nexus 7 (16:10), Mini is able to deliver more content without scrolling. This is because the latter has an aspect ratio of 4:3, which is, according to popular belief, the most convenient solution for your network. The devices we compared the ratio can boast MultiPad 9.7 Ultra Duo Omega Meteor – remember, too, that it's not about the resolution. She, too, is important, but it probably will devote a separate text in the near future. So let's look, for example tabletManiaK.pl represent the differences between the four devices. SYSTEM LEVELS
no images were foundVERTICAL SYSTEM
no images were foundConclusion: the network's most versatile is the ratio of 4:3 especially in a horizontal position. However, if you want to surf the vertical, with the tablet 16:9 or 16:10, invest in a 10.1-inch option, at seven inches, without approximation, the text is simply unreadable. I remind you that all the time turn to the world of budget tablets.
Assuming that look similar resolution
16:10 found in 10.1-inch tablet is the most common resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and offers more detail when compared with their counterparts in the standard 4:3 (ie, 8 – and 9.7-inch tablet). Record was Plug Impact 2 at 16:9 and a resolution of 1024 x 600 It is completely natural that the threshold price, if you just do not have to deal with HiDPI display. The criterion for the sharpness of the image can be considered the density of pixels, which is as follows:
- 170 PPI plow Impact 2;
- 160 PPI Omega Meteor;
- 132 PPI Prestigio MultiPad 9.7 Ultra Duo;
- 149 PPI Overmaxie Steelcore 10 + II.
In theory, the least in terms of the focus falls Budget 9.7 ", where the resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels translates to 132 PPI.'ll Find the next item on the" big "Overmax, Omega and plow – that is, plus or minus, from the largest to the smallest. Modest Impact 2 provides the sharpest picture, but readability is also an individual matter.
no images were foundConclusion: All these values are rather low, and therefore the differences between them – even though they appear – there should be crucial when choosing equipment .
Guess – which tablet will fit in the front pocket of jeans? Which in the inner pocket of his jacket?
Looking at the purely physical characteristics, it is easy to determine the winner. The shoulder bag can accommodate all tablets (although this also depends on the bag), their weight also do not mind to overcome kilometers. [Nggallery id = 388 template = techmaniak] As you can see, it seems the biggest overall dimensions Prestigio MultiPad 9.7 Ultra Duo, featuring a 9.7-inch diagonal and a ratio of 4:3. You get the feeling that he is apparently even bigger than Overmax, which is equipped with a screen size of 10.1 inches. We also checked – in part motivated masochistic – if any equipment will fit into the front pocket. Prestigio busted in your tracks. Overmax too. The Omega we tied some hope, but unnecessarily. Just plug passed the test, though łażenie to such equipment (no pun, please) is a difficult task to the limit. The conclusion? Tablet is not the phone, and as long as you do not dress like a skater from the 90's, then you have no chance of moving this type of device in normal pants. [Nggallery id = 390 template = techmaniak] In recent cases, in which we took, they were thick tablet on the example above and the ability to insert them into the lapels of his jacket (as shown in the film placed in the summary of this article). The first does not matter, because noticeably none of them interfere with the comfortable holding, greater attention to the importance przywiązałbym. In the case of tablets, 9.7-inch and 10.1-inch should expect more of a burden that often can prevent long-term holding with one hand equipment. Therefore, the larger tablets are sometimes referred to as "armchair". Conclusion: If you want to use your tablet on the go, it does not come into play nothing but 7 – or 8-inch variant. If most of the time he will serve as a home appliance, go for it – choose 9.7 or 10.1 inches.
Here are better left to the wider aspect ratio
There's a reason tablets 16:9 (or 16:10) is called multimedia. The black bars on the top and bottom of the screen during projection of the film are reduced to a minimum, even if the video was recorded in 21:9 format, it would be smaller than the analogous action is performed on the monitor with a ratio of 4:3. Sure, in terms of historical 4:3 is more important – it's the end of the standard defined by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which for many years the most popular television format. Now, in the age of HDTV, operates almost exclusively in panorama.
In the picture above you can see how much space remains unused at 4-3. Some black bars may also simply have got confused. A separate issue is the choice of an appropriate size, for as long as seven inch 16:9 recommend to anyone who wants to remain as the most mobile, so the version of the 10.1-inch (16:10) is perfect for the couch. Obviously – the larger screen, more convenience, but in a crowded bus will not work.
