    Hi guys,
    for a long time I am thinking about buying a tablet, but I can't figure out a solid reason why to buy it. I wonder why you have bought a tablet? What was your reason and in which situation are you using it?

    I have limited use for a tablet, but there are situations when it's useful.

    Books are a lot easier to read on it than a phone.

    I travel a lot, and can use a tablet and portable keyboard as a much lighter alternative to a laptop for word and Excell.

    When traveling, watching movies on a tablet is a lot more satisfying.

    There is a better Skype experience on a tablet.

    While I can take notes in meetings on my phone, it looks like I'm texting. A tablet looks more legit - even when I do get bored and am just fooling around!

    I have a tablet, laptop and 5.1 phone all serve different purposes. Laptop is for home use in my office with dual monitors for my bigger work, my Tablet is for when I am at work and need to access data for my job and personal use where my work laptop doesn't fit the bill and my phone is the all around quick goto tool. But a Tablet fits certain needs that a laptop doesn't like sitting on the couch, using it in bed to read or play games. I just don't need the laptop in those cases. Its more portable and flexible and I have a BT keyboard I can use as well.

    I have all three. I actually like my lg gpad 8.3 for home use. I rarely ever take it when I go anywhere else cause my galaxy s6 is big enough to use. I mainly use my laptop for propresenter for church, and I use a work laptop for charting all day so I don't really want to use a laptop at home lol. I actually traded into my gpad from a friend so I don't really have much in it at all I'll go weeks without using it, but since I don't really have much into it, it doesn't really hurt my feelings.

    Mostly reading, web surfing and movies. Those 3 activities comprise about 90% of my tablet use, and all 3 are much harder on my eyes on even a 5" or 6" phone for me.

    Hi guys,
    for a long time I am thinking about buying a tablet, but I can't figure out a solid reason why to buy it. I wonder why you have bought a tablet? What was your reason and in which situation are you using it?
    So I 1st got a iPad1 32GB, then a Galaxy Tab10.1 and then a iPad 4 16GB, my reason for having tablets was content consumption, being able to read the newspaper on a huge display, web browsing for hours with little battery consumption and so on. But ever since I got a phablet (Note 4), I have had less and less reason to use my iPad or even buy another tablet, I've had my iPad4 since launch 2012 and I now tend to forget my iPad at home every now and then, I mainly use it for satnav, YouTube and Calendar at work, but thats about it.

    Get yourself a phablet:

    Galaxy Note 4
    Galaxy Note 3
    Huawei Mate 7
    Google Nexus 6
    Xperia Z Ultra

    You will have best of both worlds.

    Phablets come with incredible battery life, great displays and the compactness of a smartphone.

    I have a tablet, I didn't want one at first, but then I got into reading books again so I went ahead and bought one. I also use it for web surfing at night when I don't want to be on my laptop.

Am I saying crap again now ? sorry .hahahaha

    Because I want one, and can afford one.

    It's not so much about needing one, but desiring one.

    Pros for having a tablet
    1) easier email,books etc reading compared to phone(small screen)and laptops(they are way heavier)
    2)Good for playing mobile games (rather than a phone)
    3) portable (compared to laptops)
    4) its basically just for watching videos, web surfing , reading book, quick emails when you need to do , or when you need to show someone a PIC,powerpoint, etc. (You don't need to turn on your computer for basic things and you do it on a larger screen compared to a phone
    5) last point .battery life better than phones and laptops

    Reasons why I have a tablet:

    1) Big screen, bigger than a phone, yet more portable than a laptop.
    2) Web browsing.
    3) Ebooks.
    4) Magazines.
    5) Movies.
    6) Much longer battery life. My iPad gets about 10-12 hours of screen on time.
    7) Doesn't drain your phone's battery life while you use it.
    8) Faster, more powerful than a phone.
