Given the amount of tablets on the market, I can't believe I'm struggling to find one. I'm hoping the forum collective can help me figure it out!!
My phone of choice is a Nexus 5. The best phone I've ever owned (had the N4 before that, and iPhones previous to that).
Tablet wise I had an iPad 2 and then a 64gb iPad Mini (gen 1). I've lost my Mini to the wife and kids and now need another tablet for work at under the £250 price point.
Despite my love of Android I always felt Apple was the way to go with tablets given the absurd fragmentation and version control issues I witness with Android tablets that results in a lottery as to whether an app will work correctly. This would be a no brainer and I'd go straight in for another gen 1 iPad Mini (the gen 2 Mini and Air pricing is insane) but there's an issue - iOS7. On the Mini it created 2 big problems for me on what at that point was the best tablet I had ever owned; it slowed the device down massively and worst of all the change in font size and type on the non retina display makes reading email or documents on it a disaster. But that said, given the stable ecosystem and pricing, I have to consider a 32gb version as a contender.
I should however be looking at Android as that would be my preference. There is another issue - I want something between 8 and 10 inches. That rules out the Nexus 7 which is an amazing tablet with totally the wrong size screen size. Here's hoping the 8 inch rumours are true. So I've been considering the LG G Pad (which I could root to stock 4.4 if I really felt I needed to) or the 8 inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. At the moment I'm favouring the G Pad as the size looks great and I really feel LG are going in the right direction.
I know I'm asking an Android biased audience, but I'd be keen to hear what the concenscious is for Mini gen 1 versus LG G Pad versus Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.
