    In the last 5/6 months I've purchased three different 9.7/10.1" quad-core 4.2.2 Chinese tablets, (one was defective and returned, the other two were nice tablets, and given as gifts) - one 13.3" quad-core, this will be a gift also, but I might order another one, mainly for carrying around the house while staying connected with a large screen -- three Nexus 7's 2013 (Two were gifts, one I kept for myself) -- and a Nexus 10... my favorite tablet!

    The two quad-core Chinese tabs were 9.7" 4:3 Retina screens, I liked both of them, except for one minor issue with each... the one wouldn't allow Norton Mobile Security to be activated (It was from a Newegg seller, Inception, a TaiPad #9X)

    The other wouldn't allow NoRoot Firewall to function (Amazon seller, Tablet Express, a Dragon Touch #R97), I think because the 'tun' interface was not installed/included in its firmware - 'no biggie' in each case -- I don't expect the firewall issue to ever be resolved -- but Symantec and the Chinese MFG'r are both looking into the Norton Mobile Security issue, and I do think it will be resolved sometime in the near future

    As mentioned, the nexus 10 is my favorite! -- If my hunch is correct, I'd say the Nexus 10 is either being dropped (possibly reached its EOL cycle) -- or hopefully, it's being replaced soon -- the reason I mention this is because the Google Play Store has not had any stock of either model (16GB or 32GB) for some time now - and a lot of sellers are discounting the Nexus 10... I picked up the 32GB model recently for $378 (usually $499 in the Play Store) -- and I'd probably consider a new version of the Nexus 10, if one is actually released, and the hardware, features and price are worth upgrading over the current Nexus 10

    So there's my 2 worth of tablets experiences in the last few months

    I bought the Nexus 10 first and am quite happy with it. I bought my wife the Nexus 7 last year because the 10 would just be too big for her to carry every day while commuting.

    I permitted my son use his $$ to buy himself a Nexus 7 2013. that was primarily a finance decision as he would have had to wait significantly longer to save up for a N10 and the 7 inch size fits his age /hand size a bit better than a 10 inch would.

    Still own my Nexus 10. But seriously considering the new TabPro 12.1 IF I can get it with LTE and at a good price.

    I have a Nexus 10 and recently bought an iPad Air. The differences I have noticed so far: Screen resolution on photos is comparable, but the iPad, because of its dimensions, allows the full screen to be used. This is important to me because I am an amateur photographer. The same difference makes widescreen TV and movies better to watch on the Nexus. Amazon Prime is only available on the iPad (I guess because Amazon wants to promote their Fire line for Android purchasers). I am having a hard time adjusting to the "simple" control structure of the iPad (where the heck is the "back" button?) That said, many apps I have on both are more "elegant" on the iPad, like you would see on some custom skins. For instance, I am looking at the same Sonos control app on both now. The Nexus has flat, simple control boxes, whereas the iPad had a more 3D, metallic look. I am not a fan boy for either device. I also own a Nexus 7, my phone is a Nexus 5 and I recently gave my Xoom to my step-daughter. The only IOS device I have is an old iPod Touch. I am definitely keeping the iPad, but I am also reluctant to part with either Nexus tablet.

    I had my nexus 10 for a year and was ready to replace it. I went through a lot of tablets for a few months and ended up with an iPad mini. I like it but some iOS things are a little wonky. My nexus 10 was my fave tablet and I also miss the screen size. Not interested in Samsung but thinking of maybe a surface 2. Who knows.....so fickle

    I have a Dell Venue 8 pro. It is great for a little windows computer and runs pretty smooth. I am very impressed with it. I still prefer my N10 though. I wish Dell would of made an official dock for it though. I am thinking of trying to design one and then get it 3d printed.

    Yep. Dell doesn't make a dock for the venue pro 8. With a little bit of 3d design skill a dock could be designed. Then submit it to a company with a 3d printer to make it.

    This is one example

    But I have a few additional ideas. Just waiting for some cables to get here. I found some cables that should allow me too turn it into a complete docking station.

    I had a N10 last year. I had problems with it re-booting several times a day and convinced myself to sell it, and buy something smaller and more reliable. I went through a Note 8, 2 N7 (2013), and several LG G Pads, both the original and GPE. I just pulled the trigger on getting another N10. I realized after looking at the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet specs that the N10 really has all I want. Sure the new Samsungs are nice but I am not a fan of the UI, though it is fine for a lot of people, just not me. I'll keep my G Pad GPE for when I need to travel lighter.

    I'd forgotten how nice this tablet is and it really isn't that much larger in total size than an 8 inch tablet. I ordered an Xperia Z2 tablet from the Sony store. It should be here the week after next, and I'm going to compare the 2 tabs. I am pretty sure I am going to like the Z2 tablet, if for no other reason than the micro SD card and faster processor. Still, the screen on the N10 and performance are awesome!

    It's a nice tablet, but you have to be rooted to access the sd card. That makes no sense whatsoever. Zippy performance and ice size. I hope Google stays around the same size with the next Nexus tablet.
