As the year 2014 comes to an end, it’s often time to do inventory. When it comes to Mobile OS, Android 5.0 Lollipop carries the day as the latest kid in the block. When it comes to smartphones, there’s quite a list to choose from. Speaking of tablets, a lot of us still need these. Tablets have their own share of benefits that makes them desirable even when you already own a capable smartphone. Today, we look at a high-profile listing of the best 3 Android tablets 2014.

Google Nexus 9 – I’m a Samsung buff myself, and I gloom Samsung all the way. But when it comes to the best Android tablets of 2014, we have to agree that Google has really carried the day here. The Google Nexus 9 can be many things, but I prefer to use three simple words to describe it – “a pure, premium power horse”. With a HD display in check, a sizeable 8.9” screen and the latest version of Android, this device will unlock a world of pure bliss. This tablet gives you the latest of specs and software capabilities, and is available directly from Google at a $399 price tag.

Nvidia Shield Tablet – the Nvidia Shield Tablet comes across the board as the second best Android tablet of 2014. Well, this cute device packs the punch of powerful graphics, and sucks its energy from a Tegra K1 processor. You also get expandable micro SD storage, Android 4.4 KitKat, plus add-on wireless game controller for sofa gaming and streaming video entertainment. All this comes to you at a price tag of $299.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S – Sammy finally show up, and their device ranks number 3 on our list of the best Android tablets of 2014. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S is one device a good number of us have been acquainted with, and I’m sure you’d agree with me when I say it’s simply small, powerful and feature-rich. If you have a thing for ‘extremely slim’, this is the device you’re looking for. More so, it comes across the board as gorgeous, and features a high-definition display. And the price range for this? $399 on the higher end, $350 on the lower end!
