The Digital Disciple’s Screen Resolution Chart – Fall 2016

tablet-screen-master-2016-09-21-alpha-sort

I created The Digital Disciple’s Screen Resolution chart 4 years ago to compare the display sizes, screen sizes, and resolutions of Android and Apple tablets.  I posted it on the blog and it became the lead post and lead page.  Fast forward to today, the chart has gone from about 20 tablets to over 70. I update the chart twice a year.  This edition includes PC Magazines top 10 tablets for 2016 and it is sorted in alphabetical order by manufacturer to make tablets easier to find.

I will keep the most current version of the chart on this page.

Please let me know if you find any mistakes and leave a comment if the chart has helped you.

How have you used the chart and what tablet are you buying?
