The Best Tablet Computers In March – With Benchmark Scores

This is the list of the best tablets in March 2020 if all you want is simply the best tablet computer in each size regardless of the price of it. The list of the best tablets takes into account anything from power, to displays, size, build quality, battery life, and general specs that are important for a tablet.

Only one tablet is listed in each size category, starting with the largest all the way down to the smallest on the market in March. The single-core and multi-core benchmarks scores are from Geekbench 4. Generally speaking, the higher the number the higher the performance.

Tablets / 2-in-1's that are excluded right now are the Surface Book 2 (13.5 & 15) and Surface Go, since these tablets may potentially be replaced in a few weeks time, otherwise they would be on this top tablets list even for March.

Microsoft Surface Pro X
Not everybody's favorite, but only because of potential issues as an Windows on ARM tablet. Other than that it is a good tablet, though the price is still considered a little high.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
13 $899 Windows 10 3,535 11,670


Apple iPad Pro 12.9
The new iPad Pro 12.9 may be even more powerful than the top model of the Surface Pro 7, but with a larger screen and a decent price tag considering its performance. Will be launched on March 25, now with a more powerful GPU and 6GB LPDDR4X RAM as standard for all configurations.

12.9 $999 iPadOS 5,035 18,325


Microsoft Surface Pro 7
The much evolved Windows 10 tablet is now better than ever before, and finally got USB C connectivity as well. It has anything from an award winning display, to speedy performance, a long list of accessories, to good warranties. Also the most powerful tablet on the market right now.

Google Pixel Slate
This Chrome OS 2-in-1 tablet is becoming cheap for the Intel Core m3 model, but also has two other processor options for those in need of something more powerful. The least powerful is listed first, and the most powerful last.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
12.3 $445 Chrome 3,230 5,660

Apple iPad Pro 11
The most powerful iPad together with the larger 12.9 model, which has anything from quad speakers to great digitizer feel. Will be released on March 25, now with a more powerful GPU and 6GB LPDDR4X RAM as standard on all storage models.

The most powerful Android tablet on the market in March, with great specs in every area and a functionality that makes it appeal to a wide range of customers with different usage scenarios.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
10.5 $619 Android 9.0 3,505 10,950

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G
Apple iPad Air 10.5
Light, slim, powerful, relatively cheap, good specs, and support for some keyboards, makes this iPad worth considering for a iPad 2-in-1 setup.

10.5 $459 iPadOS 4,815 11,485

Apple iPad Air 10.5
Chuwi Hi10 X
This 10.1-inch Windows 2-in-1 tablet is a good alternative to the Surface Go, with a slightly larger screen, stiffer keyboard, and different performance.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
10.1 $229 Windows 10 1,805 5,240

Chuwi Hi10 X
Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen 8.0 (2019)
A very user friendly tablet with Samsung's S Pen digitizer/stylus, and enough power for the tasks that an 8-inch tablet will be put through.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
8 $269 Android 9.0 1,325 4,155

Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen 8.0 (2019) Tablet SM-P200 SM-P205
Apple iPad mini 5
The newest iPad mini 5 is a pocket rocket that's powerful enough to shame many laptops, a fact that's still lost on many. And now that it has support for the Apple Pencil digitizer, it is even more attractive. Optional keyboards are also available.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
7.9 $349 iPadOS 4,810 11,480


Amazon Fire 7
While there are other 7-inch Android 9.0 tablets on the market today for under $100, they tend to fail on too short battery life, and as strange as it may seem, the Fire 7 is actually the most powerful 7-inch tablet in March based on the benchmark scores.
