In today’s generation, tablets are common whether it’s for education or professional use. Most of the time, we use tablets to watch movies, play games and surf the net. We also use them to read stories, social media posts and even important documents on-the-go. Some tablets go the extra mile by having blue light filters to reduce strain on the eyes of readers, and some have wide screens to keep readers comfortable without having to consistently zoom in.
