I am up to get a new smartphone soon. I am either going to go back to the iPhone or actually pick up a Windows based phone. That is obviously a whole other topic and not why I am posting here. So no need to discuss which smartphone I should get next. I am no doubt waiting to get a new smartphone until after Apple releases info about the iPhone 6 in June.
So the purpose of picking up an Android tablet is I have been an Android smartphone owner for the past 2 years. As such I have invested quite a bit of money into the ecosystem. I actually do like Android a whole lot as well. I own a Chromecast, and the integration with it is fantastic. I also use Google products for pretty much all my personal organization, so Android obviously really excels there. I have come to rely on quite a few Android based apps for my home network and media.
This is why I am looking to pick up a Android Tablet. To have something that keeps me in the Android ecosystem. The main purpose of this tablet will be Android Games and Reading; Books, Comic Books, and Digital Magazines (I have made a few magazine subscription purchase in Google Play Newsstand).
I have somewhat narrowed it down to one the following tablets:
- Google Nexus 7
- Google Nexus 10
- EVGA Tegra Note 7
- Sony Xperia Z2
- LG GPad 8.3 Google Play Edition
- Asus MeMo Pad HD 7
Now the Xperia Z2 is the most expensive of the bunch but it also seems to have some of the best specs overall, and I do like the fact one can use a Dualshock 3 with it. Being a heavy gamer and also having many Sony devices in my home makes me no doubt consider it. I just feel like it would fit good with the rest of my Sony components.
A nice resolution is important, which is why as much as I love the rest of the specs on the EVGA Tegra 7, and the price is really damn nice, I just wish it had a higher resolution. I also do not think I need a Stylus really, which seems to be a major aspect of it.
So just curious if anyone has owned any of the above tablets, or even better has been able to compare any of the above tablets, and has an opinion either way?
I got my parents a Nexus 7 for Christmas this past year, so I am very familiar with it, and am really considering it, but I do like the idea of having a larger screen with one of the 10" models.
The one criteria I would love is if somehow any of these tablets will no doubt be upgradeable to the next Android OS, but I do not think they do things like that.
So again, any feedback is no doubt appreciated.
