With so many tablet options these days, it’s hard to pick the right one. Luckily, I made this comparison sheet to help you make a better decision.

Tablets

With the growing awareness and competition among different tablets, it is getting amazingly difficult to judge and select the best tablets for consumers. In order to give the readers a better perspective of what the tech giants are offering, here I put…

I went with the Samsung. I have been looking for a
tablet to kick around the house that not only let me read all my favorite books
on my downtime, but also controlled things around the house like light switches
and the TVs. I have been in this home automation kick as of late, so that of
course was a must have feature. I was reading around and almost bought a Nexus
until I read in one mag that the new Samsung destroyed it in performance. After
reading a few more online (ie, https://pocinc.net/blog/product-reviews/review-samsung-galaxy-tab-s-10-5-inch-tablet
for one example or the one at Cnet), I wound up getting sold on it. Let me tell
you…..yeah baby! This thing rocks my world. I even take it to work with me when
possible. It’s like my new best friend }:)

I was just reading that. I think I might get one. Home automation sounds fun, but I need one for mostly video and music on the run as well as a few addicting art programs.

Buy an android tablet if you want a portable netflix player. Buy an iOS tablet if you want a portable gaming/productivity/AV-editing device. There are 1000 times more apps custom designed for the iPad screen then there are for any android devices.

That comes from the fact that there are over 20000 android devices of all different sizes, so google’s android reformats the apps for the big screen size. This system is inherently flawed though since android can’t predict how the developer wants the info displayed on a larger screen, so you get an incredibly inconsistent user interface experience. (a review of the UI is here: https://www.androidpolice.com/2014/11/11/nexus-9-vs-ipad-air-2-a-mostly-subjective-comparison/ )

Android owns smartphones.

iOS owns tablets.

I couldn’t disagree more. I have used various iPads many times and I can’t stand the UI. Locked down and limited by that nazi of a company. Android offers more UI customization and flexibility in my opinion. Yes it resizes, but with the new Android OS, developers can take advantage of this now so they can design their app one time to work on all types devices. I still stick with what I said below 🙂

This article is about the iPad, Nexus and Galaxy tablets. I posted a comment that said which one I like and the reason for my purchase. It was deleted because it was considered “spam”. I think that was uncalled for.

Benchmarks show iPad Air 2 blowing the Samsung out of the water. I went with the iPad and have been satisfied with its blazing speed. Don’t care too much about expandable memory as I went with the 64GB. More than enough for my needs.
