With smaller tablets shrinking to 7 inch screens and smartphones rapidly growing in screen size, what really is the difference between a tablet and a smart mobile phone - and which one is right for you?
Reasons to choose a tablet
The ‘lightweight laptop’:
Tablets allow users to have all the functions of a laptop without the size and weight of one. Perfect for looking for something quickly, online.
Big screen viewing:
The average tablet screen size is around 10 inches, making TV catch up on iPlayer or watching films on Netflix easy viewing.
Similar functions to smartphones:
Front facing cameras on tablets now make video calling the perfect feature for keeping in touch with friends and family.
Tablets are great for children on the move. Long car journeys and flights are made stress-free with games and apps on the go. Check out our child-exclusive tablet, the EE Robin.
Tablets are also available on SIM plans too, meaning you can stay connected on your device even without WiFi.
