When it comes the best note taking devices, the new released iPad Pro 2020 must be in the list. iPad Pro is perfect for taking notes and organizing your thoughts. With the Apple pencil, you can sketch ideas in the Notes app as naturally as you do on paper, then catalog them, share them, or add them to a presentation. You can even search for your handwritten notes. Still, there are lots of great note-taking apps in the App Store that let you organize, annotate, and take your notes to a higher level.

3. Samsung Galaxy Tab S6--The Best Android Note Taking Tablet

If you're after the best Android tablet for note taking, then undoubtedly the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is definitely the best choice out there. A lot of features are contributing to this title, but the most important one should be the S Pen stylus which offers a brilliant experience for drawing and taking notes. Better still, the S pen does not cost you extra money since it's shipped with the tablet.

4. Google Pixel Slate--The Best Chrome OS Note Taking Tablet

Between iOS, Windows and Android note-taking devices, there are lots of other options you can consider. But if none of them attract you, you can take a glance at Google Pixel Slate, which runs Chrome OS. Chrome OS is what all the other operating systems aspire to be, since it strikes a good balance between a mobile and a desktop OS. It runs Android apps, and also runs popular desktop applications like Microsoft Office. With the Google Pixelbook Pen which feels natural just like a pen on paper, you can easily learn and do more with what's on your screen.

5. ReMarkable 2--The Best E-Ink Note Taking Tablet

ReMarkable is an e-ink paper tablet for taking notes, reading documents or ebooks with a paper-like feel. Compared with all the above tablets which have an LCD-based screen, reMarkable offers an eye-friendly reading experience without backlight, glare or eye strain. And compared with some other eReaders like Kindle, reMarkable lets you easily make notes on your documents, which can't be done on an ereader.

Compared with the first generation model that's released a few years ago, ReMarkable 2 improved a lot and made a breakthrough in many aspects. ReMarkable 2 is now available as a pre-order and will ship in July 2020. Personally speaking, I prefer this paper tablet in particular among all the note taking devices in the market.
