10 Best LTE Tablets In 2019

Tablets are great devices to have around, but one of their limitations is that, really, they need to be connected up to Wi-Fi to use the Internet at all. That means that if you need to use it on the go, you’ll have to be lucky enough to run into a Wi-Fi Hotspot somewhere or stop in at a coffee shop or restaurant that offers free Wi-Fi.

However, if you don’t mind spending a little extra money, you can get rid of that hassle entirely by picking up a tablet with cellular functionality. That way, you can use your tablet on a cell network as well as at home connected up to your Wi-Fi. Follow along below, and we’ll show you the 10 best LTE tablets in 2019.

Apple iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular

Even if you’re an Android guru at heart, it’s difficult to avoid the Apple iPad because of how polished and well-supported they are. Android tablets have never been able to take the spotlight, always coming out subpar in some way — whether that be in slowness, battery, thickness or even a poor display. While they’re start to catch up, you still can’t go wrong with the Apple iPad that supports cellular connectivity. You’ll be able to take your iPad on the go without worrying about trying to find a Wi-Fi connection, all while still enjoying the same great media experience the iPad provides.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

If you’re looking for a premium top of the line Android tablet experience, you cannot go wrong with the Galaxy Tab S3. This particular model has a beautiful Super AMOLED display that you can enjoy on the go thanks to its cellular LTE support. The tablet was designed to work on all GSM networks, so you should be able to enjoy this beautiful tablet even while you’re on the go.

It also has a built-in stylus for those that would rather use that than the finger for touch-based actions — the stylus also makes it easier for putting together presentations or excel documents.

HTC Google Nexus 9

Maybe you’d prefer the “Pure Android” or “Vanilla Android” experience. It’s quite a bit different than Samsung’s skin of Android and definitely iOS. It’s slimmer, faster and a whole lot more efficient on battery power. It’s sleeker looking as well. Not only that, but the Nexus 9 has cellular connectivity, so you’ll be able to use it anywhere you go as well, even in the middle of, say, a park. Get your hands on one of the latest tablets from Google at the link below.

HP 2-in-1 Spectre

Or, maybe you’d like something that has more of a laptop-style to it. The HP Spectre is a 2-in-1 laptop that can turn into a tablet simply be removing the magnetic keyboard. It’s based off of Windows 10, so you’ll be able to use all of your Windows 10 programs with ease — Microsoft Excel, Office, PowerPoint, AutoCAD, etc.

This is a Verizon LTE model, so you’ll have to be on Verizon to use its cellular functionality, which isn’t a huge deal with how cheap it is for a device like this. However, you’ll be able to use the Wi-Fi wherever of course.

Samsung Galaxy Tab E

Next up on our list is the Galaxy Tab E from Samsung. This is an Android-based tablet, so you’ll have access to the Google Play Store and its hundreds of thousands of goodies. This is a cheaper Android tablet with cellular connectivity, so it’s only running KitKat, but you’ll still be able to get LTE functionality all the way down to 3G. It also only has 16GB of storage, but you can expand that by 64GB with a microSD card.

It’s also worth noting that the cellular features will only work on AT&T’s network, so you’ll need an active AT&T account to use it, or you’ll need to create a new one and get a specific SIM card for the Galaxy Tab E. Either way, it’s fairly cheap to get a tablet like this on a plan per month (around $10 a month, possibly a little more depending on your data allowance).

Apple iPad Pro

It’s no surprise that at the top of our list is Apple’s 11 inch iPad Pro. Sleek and sophisticated, you won’t be disappointed with this one. As for the specifics, we’re cheating a little bit, because this tablet is actually 11 inches. It actually has a Liquid Retina panel, with wide color, true tone, and ProMotion. Suffice to say, you get a beautiful experience here. With the embedded A12X Bionic Chip with Neural Engine, you’ll have up to ten full hours of battery life. It’s also compatible with the Apple Pencil and their Smart Keyboard.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Not a fan of the iPad Pro? Then you’ll want to check out Samsung’s offering — the Tab S4 is actualy one the best of the best that Android has to offer. This one is a direct competitor to the iPad Pro, offering you a gorgeous 10.5-inch display. Apps, games, movies, and TV shows look excellent on this screen — text is clear as well, so it’s easy on the eyes. One of the benefits to the Galaxy Tab S4 is that it comes with an S-Pen — that’s a huge advantage over the iPad Pro, where you have to buy the Apple Pencil separately.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of cash on a tablet? Then you might want to consider a slightly downgraded version to the Tab S4, the Galaxy Tab A. This is more of a mid-range tablet, so you’ll get a slightly less clear screen, as well as some downgraded hardware. The tablet will still be able to handle most you throw at it, but most importantly, it’s able to support 4G LTE connections on most carriers, and at half the cost of a Tab S4!

LG G Pad XII

LG has been stepping up their tablet game recently, introducing the G Pad XII as the next best high-end tablet. With a 10.1-inch WUXIA HD display and a premium hardware package, this tablet can take some serious abuse. The hardware package means the G Pad XII can handle most apps and high end games, and the decent display will provide you with a great viewing experience, as well as sharp text. Most importantly, the G Pad XII supports 4G LTE!

Surface Pro LTE

Need something more powerful than what a tablet can offer? Or, maybe you just want to run apps that you would on a PC or laptop on your laptop. In that case, you’ll want to pick up a Surface Pro with LTE. The Surface Pro is essentially a full blown laptop, but in the form of a tablet. You can add a keyboard to it if you want, but for the most part, it is a portable tablet, a tablet that you can run your PC apps on. It has some pretty good battery life, and you can use it anymore with a supported LTE data plan.

Verdict

So, which one should you choose? It can be a difficult decision. If you want an iPad, we recommend going with the iPad with Wi-Fi and Cellular model, or if you’ve got the cash, the latest edge-to-edge iPad Pro. It certainly won’t let you down. But, if you’d rather use more computer-based apps, we recommend the HP Spectre 2-in-1 hands down. For Android, if you have the cash to spend, the Nexus 9 is a fantastic experience. The Surface Pro LTE is another top choice if you’ve got money to drop on something like this.

No matter what tablet you choose, you’ll still get a great experience with capabilities of accessing the Internet on-the-go.
