Hi,
Thinking of purchasing a tablet but am undecided between the Galaxy Tab, Note or the Nexus. Can all 3 do the same thing? Does either of them do something that the others cannot? Does either of them standout above the rest?
The Note and Nexus seem to have better specs than the Tab

My wife already has an iPad but i like the look of the above 3.

Any thoughts, opinions much appreciated.
Thanks
Joe

Sorry yes i should have specified.
Don't mind if its 7in, 8in or 10in and would prefer 16gb or bigger.

If you are not concerned about the size then it is just a matter of playing with them all.

The main difference between the three you have stated is the S-Pen on the Note. The Note 8 and 10.1 both have S-Pens and a proper digitiser so you can take notes. I have a Note 10.1 and didn't use the pen much until I did a course recently and ended up taking a heap of notes on it. It is very cool if you are in a classroom situation, particularly with the Papyrus app which is very clever.

The other option is the Sony Z tablet which is water resistant and has a very nice screen on it.

Cheers, Matt.

Yes. All of those are a given. When you plug your Android tablet into a computer it will appear like a usb hard drive. You then chippy any movies and music to it and use the built in music and video players. Depending on what format your movies are in you may have to download a video player from the play store. This is a simple operation similar to the app store on an ipad.

unless you dont want to spend much, i wouldn't buy any of the galaxy tab or galaxy notes, - lack of CPU power and low res/disappointing screens, but they are cheap


the just announced Galaxy note 10.1 2014 edition is great if you can wait a month or so

if you want the 7 inch the newly released Nexus 7 is the way to go.

The more i read about the Nexus 7 the more i like it but for me 1 downfall in not having expandable memory.
