The best Android tablets can be a huge asset for any creative; these slender but powerful devices make it easy to work on the go. With high-resolution touchscreen displays and powerful processors, Android tablets from the likes of Samsung make for brilliant tools for artists of all different persuasions; and unlike with Apple, many Android tablets come bundled with a stylus, so there's no hidden extra cost there.

To create this guide, we've picked Android tablets from a broad range of manufacturers, but also haven't hesitated to recommend multiple models from the same manufacturer if those happen to be the best. Many of these tablets work for drawing, but see our best drawing tablets guide if you want something specifically for your artwork. And if your Android tablet doesn't come with a stylus to your liking (or at all), have a look at what we think is the best stylus for Android devices.
