Best Android Tablet for Gaming


Jul 25, 2014
I have a 10.1" Galaxy Tab Pro but I am wondering if there are any other 10" tablets out there that are better for gaming. I have always been and always will be an Android guy so iPad is definitely out. Do NOT like iOS at all.
Anyway, I have recently discovered this NVidia Shield tablet which definitely looks to be about the best purely gaming tablet, but it's just too small for me and they apparently don't have any plans of releasing a larger version. So... is there a better 10" gaming tablet out there or should I just stick with my Tab Pro?
Is your tab pro using Snapdragon or Exynos? this matters.

Maybe the Xperia Z2 Tablet? with a 1920*1200 display and Snapdragon 801 performance should be reasonable, sadly excluding the shield this is good as it gets right now.

That said if your a gamer you really should go with the Shield Tablet, K1 is much faster than Snapdragon 801 when it comes to gaming, basically twice the performance.

Games feel so much smoother on the shield tablet, it's night and day difference.

Maybe it's just me, but I'd prefer a 7 or 8inch tablet for certain games. Sure a 10.1inch is great for say, a game like Four Kingdoms or Clash of Clans, but for something Dead Trigger, Dead Space or Asphalt, I'd prefer the 8incher.

Agreed, larger tablets make touchscreen controls a little arkward in a lot of games.

Afterall, the tablets get bigger but your hands don't. :)
