Australians are using their tablets more than ever, with 40% suggesting that tablets have the potential to replace laptops, according to new research conducted by PureProfile on behalf of Samsung Electronics Australia.

Three in five (60%) Australians surveyed use their tablets daily, especially in the evening for leisure and relaxation to browse the web (70%), watch videos (62%) and read content like recipes, ebooks and news (57%).

The number one reason Australians reach for their tablets is due to the larger screen size compared to their smartphones (75%).

From browsing on planes (38%), catching up on shows during commutes (31%), or chilling in the park (26%) – Australians love their tablets on-the-go, even 19% admit to using a tablet on the toilet.

When it comes to buying a new tablet, Australians are focused on the bottom line. Value for money is the top priority (39%) followed by display quality and size (26%) and performance and speed (20%).
