    Kindle Fire HD, along with my Note 5. I use Amazon Prime a lot, so a Kindle is a must .

    Tab 4 10.1. Used mostly to play games and a reader app for my books. I got the same app and books on my Note 5 but on the phone turning the pages on the 5 is like flipflipflipflipflipflipflip....

    I guess it depends on your specific needs. But if you want a reasonably priced tablet and you use Amazon I recommend a Fire HD 8. They even let you pay $30 a month for it.

    I have both an iPad Air and a Samsung 9.7" Tab S2. I probably use the Air more though the Tab S2 has a much better screen....probably because it's instant on. Yeah, I can't get on without a tablet for research and reading local newspapers online.....the phablet is still too small for comfortable reading (though the Kindle app works great).

    Go to the product page on their website and it's an option on the right hand side.

    If you need something light for reading a just bought an older kindle (a kindle keyboard). Got it for $35. Perfect for reading. Never should have sold it years ago.

    I have a tablet I use at work solely for teleprompting. We also have a tablet at home that my wife uses. I've always held the opinion (though not strongly) that tablets are not an ideal size. They're too big to carry with you all the time so you inevitably set it down. I'm never in a situation where I slap my forehead and say, "I should have brought my phone!" but I'm sure it would happen with the tablet.
    Likewise, when I want to do heavier work, it almost always needs applications that just aren't there (or not all there) for the tablet. I go to my desktop (or laptop when traveling).
    So, for me, the tablet isn't all that useful and I consequently hardly use it.

    Have 2 Kindles, iPad, and Note 10.1 Pro. Gave up using them all. Best reading devices are my Note 4 and 5.

    No longer turn my Notes in when I upgrade. Use the Note 4 to play media on my TV and as a remote. Or to read while I'm charging my 5.

    Will be sorely disappointed if the Note 6 doesn't come with IR blaster, larger battery and easy way to cast to my TV.

    Yep, but to be fair...it's a work thing. I'm a game development consultant and my life consists of sitting in meetings and taking notes about 70% of my time, to that end...I have a Galaxy Note 5 and a Galaxy Note 2014 edition 10.1 inch tablet....works great for keeping and easily being able to preference my notes.

    Still use a tab S2 9.7 on an almost daily basis, but I don't carry a tablet with me outside the house and can do most everything on the phone. Actually prefer the phone for communication and heavy text input, tablets best for media consumption.

    I have my Surface Pro 3 with me all the time. So if I want a bigger screen, I just tether it to my Note 5. Boom!

    Surface Pro 3 and original iPad Pro

    Like many others on here have already said, each device is situational, some apps are only available on certain operating systems and other devices are just more appropriate for some tasks / functions.

    This is my home office, from the left I have my iPad, right next to.it my 128 gb ipod, center my HP Windows 10 touch computer, below is my Note5 phone, and to the right my Note Pro 12.2

    ๐Ÿ˜Š yes I use them all, they all have a different use, along with my phone. The Giant 27" PC is great for my photoshop work and to work on my music, I need a huge screen for that ๐Ÿ˜š

    I neglected to mention that though I prefer my Note 4 and 5 in lieu of most of my other tablets including my 10.1 Pro (2014) I do use a Surface for my computing (almost exclusively legal pleadings using WordPerfect.)

    If I did it again I would opt for the Surface Pro though for word processing the regular Surface is more than adequate. Don't really think of this device as a tablet because I use it exclusively as a computer replacement.

    Not to be burned at the stake, but I frequently use an IPad mini 2 for reading and gameplay, saving my note edge for work. I do leave the mini at home more than I used to though....

    I know a lot of Android users that also have iOS devices. It's no big deal. I personally don't think that there would be much of a difference between the Note and the iPad mini. I like doing everything on my Note if possible.

    Would love to see the Note 6 upgraded to a 6" screen. And, yes, I know it's not going to happen.

    I have a kindle, but can't justify purchasing a tablet for just watching YouTube and Netflix on when I hardly travel lol. Maybe if I traveled for work or somthing I would buy one.
