iPad Pro (2021)
I love drawing on the iPad Pro. Lightweight apps like Procreate make it fun to draw on. Pro apps like Clip Studio and Affinity Photo show that we are starting to really get professional caliber apps on the iPad.
iPad Air (5th gen)
I didn't review the air but the insides are the same as the iPad Mini so the performance is identical. The main difference between the iPad air and the mini is the size of the screen. It still works with an iPad app and the fist generation Apple pencil
iPad (9th generation)
The most recent iPad (that only cost $329) are the best bang for the buck you're going to find in the art world. The Apple pencil is arguable the best stylus out there and it now works on the lowest end iPad. Performance for high end games is just ok but art applications are great.
The Mini is adorable and really really light. It now works with the second generation Apple pencil and every drawing app available on the app store. The drawing performance is just as good as the iPad pro but in a much smaller form factor.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 (Standard Ultra and Plus)
The S8 Ultra is Samsung's flagship tablet and does it ever have some cool features. You probably don't need a lot of them but it's cool to see Samsung pushing the boundaries.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+
The S7 plus is Samsung's flagship tablet and does it ever have some cool features. You probably don't need a lot of them but it's cool to see Samsung pushing the boundaries.

Samsung Galaxy Tab FE
This is the 2021 budget priced Android tablet Samsung has released. It's a stripped down version of the S7+. The real appeal fo this tablet is the screen size. It's just hard to find a 12.4 inch display at this price point.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
This was one of my favorite products of 2020. Not because it's the best Android tablet out there, but because it's such a great value at this price point.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3
How is it to draw on? Good and Bad. Good because it has a Wacom power stylus. Bad because there is a bump in the middle of the screen and that's going to drive a a lot of people mad when trying to draw on this thing.
