In smartphones and tablets, Accelerometer and Gyroscope sensors are used to detect the directional orientation of the device. This helps in providing services such as live GPS, 3D VR videos, etc. However, the accelerometer is used to track the directional movement of the device, while gyroscope detects tilts and orientation. Which means, if the device has an only accelerometer, you will be partially able to use navigation, but your device won’t support VR videos, 360 videos, etc. For such functionalities, a gyroscope sensor must be present in the tablets.

This tablet is the latest edition of Samsung’s A series which also supports Pen inputs as well as faster processing when compared to its predecessors. This model comes with thinner bezels, yet grippier for handheld use. You can use the Samsung keyboard with this for business productivity applications.
On top of this, it is a mid-range device and is cost effective when compared with this bigger sibling, the Galaxy S4 tablet. Check out its specifications below:
– MP4/H.264 player – MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player – Photo/video editor – Document viewer
If you are an Apple fan, then this latest iPad is the one that you need to buy. It comes with all the bells and whistles like retina displays, A10 Fusion chip along with the entire Apple ecosystem. And yes! it does support the Apple pencil for Pen inputs. Typically, most of Apple’s products come with all the necessary sensors, including Accelerometers and Gyroscopes. Overall, highly recommended.

– Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic
– Siri natural language commands and dictation – iCloud cloud service – MP3/WAV/AAX+/AIFF/Apple Lossless player – MP4/H.264 player – Audio/video/photo editor – Document editor
The Galaxy Tab S4 is arguably the best Android tablet currently available on the market today. It also comes with Samsung’s own DeX platform where you can transform your tablet to a PC. The Super AMOLED Display is crisp and clear like you would expect. Even though it comes with a 10.5″ OLED display, the 112% DCI-P3 coverage like the Galaxy S9 is simply insane.
The large battery and storage make this tablet a joy to use. The Adaptive display with 80% RGB is excellent, and the color accuracy is just about perfect. What we don’t like is the older SD830, 4 GB of RAM and the lack of a fingerprint scanner. Take your pick!
– Speakers tuned by AKG/HARMAN – Dolby Atmos sound
– Fast battery charging – Samsung Dex – ANT+ support – MP4/H.264 player – MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player – Photo/video editor – Document editor

The Mi Pad 4 is currently not available in all the markets internationally. Currently, it is available in selective South East Asian markets. However, international sellers would gladly ship it to your doorstep in case you want one. It comes with a 2K display and a Snapdragon 660 which is not slow in any way. The screen is LCD, and the cameras are for basic usage like video chatting, but not for any serious photography.
Overall, for the price, we highly recommend this to anyone who wants a mid-tier device with decent specs for daily usage.
– MIUI 9.0
– Xvid/MP4/H.264 player – MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player – Photo/video editor – Document viewer – Charging 5V/2A 10W
This is a great looking tablet from Huawei and comes with all the latest specs that you would expect in 2018. We especially like the thin bezels and the long battery life. We did not find any issues during gaming or regular website browsing. However, this device uses the same antenna for Bluetooth and WiFi, and users might experience disconnections due to this.
However, this is a premium Android tablet and is mostly on the pricier side. If looks could kill, this is it!
– Stylus – EMUI 8.0
– Fast battery charging – MP3/WAV/Flac player – MP4/H.264 player – Document viewer – Photo/video editor
The Tab S3 is the predecessor to the S4 tablet that is currently out. Even though it was released in 2017, it still has a lot of power under the hood. It comes with a Pen and is great for students who use their tablets to take notes.
The display is crisp and comes with an AMOLED display. The battery life is decent and supports Samsung’s adaptive charging. There is a micro-sd slot for memory expansion, and the Pen does not require additional charging or pairing which is excellent.
The full glass back may not be something that everyone likes, and for the price, 32 GB of built-in memory is too less. Overall, this tablet has aged well, and you can check out its specifications below:
– Speakers tuned by AKG/HARMAN
– Fast battery charging – ANT+ support – MP4/H.264 player – MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player – Photo/video editor – Document editor
