Be mindful of the price.

In addition to budget concerns, you need to think about when and where you will be using your tablet. If you are only going to be getting online at home, a Wi-Fi only tablet may be okay for you, but if you plan on using your tablet anywhere and everywhere, you probably need a table that can also get online with a 3G or 4G connection.
Think about specs.
Your Android tablet is designed to be mobile, functional and practical; depending on what you will do with your tablet, different tablets with different specs may end up fitting that bill for you. As you look at tablets keep in mind several aspects. Size is important; you want to go small if you will always be mobile, but you may want to go bigger if you have vision difficulties. Additionally, you may want a laptop with a faster processor if you will be editing images or playing more intense games, but if you are only planning on surfing the web, you could take something more pared down.
Be thoughtful about storage
Like your desktop or laptop PCs, different tablets have different storage capacities. Usually, your Android tablet won’t need to store as much information as your laptop would, but your tablet usage will dictate if you need more or less storage. If your primary tablet use is surfing the web, checking social networks, and light gaming, less storage may be for you. If you will use your tablet to store images, documents, music, and more, additional storage may be required. Before you go to the store, do some serious thinking about how much storage you need. It is easy to get enticed by a sales pitch to buy a tablet with higher memory for more money, even though you may not need it.
