In summary, playing on Android gives you much more flexibility in terms of the number of tablets that it will be released on.

For a good tablet the ipad minis are nice to hold and not too heavy for long hours of play. However to test all of these for performance would be quite difficult, and hopefully a kind commenter will help by sharing their experience of the device in question and if there are any issues with the device at all before a purchase is made.

The Nvidia shields are really good overall tablet gaming experience, but how these measure up for a game like Football Manager will be difficult to assess as its very different to action games. It might be a better choice to go for a more affordable option if buying from Amazon

Alternate methods of finding these tablets cheap.

Take a search on Gumtree, or search for classified listing webistes and search for one of these tablets above ^ There are probably plenty of bargains to be had for these specific tablets and you could save £££’s potentially dependant on which you want to purchase.

A good thing about buying on classifieds or even ebay is that these items are ideal to fit through your letter box. (Ensuring that they are well packaged of course!)

You may even find a good deal locally to you. So have a search on Gumtree, but failing that use the links above to help choose the right tablet for you to play FMC 2015 on!

Hopefully the future Football Manager games will all be released in sequence and not much later on in the year as we have seen with this tablet only version.

Which device are you going for? Or have you already luckily in ownership on one on this list to play FMC on? If so let us know so others can get a good ideaon which tablet best suits Football Manager Classic 2015!
