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.
