With the rise of bigger smartphones, the popularity of tablets may have dropped, but they can still perform certain tasks better than phones, especially for productive work or consumption of media. In fact some apps are best used on a tablet, such as those for reading or editing large documents.
Now Flipkart is hosting a day-long sale called ‘Terrific Tablets Day’ with some great discounts and deals on tablets. Here’s a look at the four best deals that might just convert you into a tablet buyer:
1. Apple iPad 6th Gen 32GB (Wi-Fi Only)
The latest iPad, launched earlier this year in March, is an attractive deal for anyone who writes or sketches on the go, and is already embedded into the iOS ecosystem. It comes with a 9.7-inch Quad HD display which is super crisp and renders text and images with great clarity and quality.
The 6th-Gen iPad supports the Apple Pencil and is powered by a 64-bit A10X Fusion Chip. Additionally, it comes with an 8MP camera on the back and a 1.2MP sensor on the front and runs iOS 11 out-of-the-box. It also features Apple’s proprietary Touch ID fingerprint authentication system.

2. Alcatel Pop 4 with Keyboard
With features like 4G LTE connectivity, a huge battery, and detachable keyboard, the Alcatel Pop 4 is for those who prefer taking their office with them. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 430 chipset along with 2GB of RAM. It has a 10.1-inch Full HD screen, so that you do not have to suffer due to poor readability. Onboard, there’s 16GB of storage which can be expanded using a micro SD card.
Alcatel Pop 4 packs in a massive 5830 mAh battery and even supports voice calling. The tablet also gets an 8MP camera on the back which is complemented by a 5MP sensor on the front. One drawback, however, is that you get an outdated version of Android i.e. Marshmallow but it still manages to offer basic productivity features including the split screen.
