Its 2015, I need a Android tablet. I was thinking Nexus 9 or Galaxy Tab S2 but im not a big fan of Samsung... Any recommendations?
>>
Pixel C will be released soon. It'll no doubt be the best Android tablet on the market.
>>
Asus zenpad S 8.0 for a $200 tablet. The more expensive one overheats

Don't know shit about other tablets
>>
>>51391720
Any idea when Pixel C will release?
>>
>>51391766

I don't think anybody knows yet.

I'm in the market for a tablet though and I know exactly what I'm getting.
>>
>>51391693
Nexus 9 is better than the galaxy tab in every way

The galaxy tab still has 720p while the nexus 9 has 1440p

This one looks quite good, too bad there's no rom yet for it.

nexus 9 is not that great, i have it.
games run great! but multitasking is a disaster with only 2Gb ram.
>>
>>51392553
OP Here, I'm not for the Pixel C, Im not a fan of 10+inch tablets for some reason, I need the tablet to replace my need to carry my 8.9pound laptop to class all the time, so word processing is fine on Nexus 9?

Does it have an attachable keyboard?
>>
>>51392685
Why would you want to attach some shitty keyboard to a tablet when you could just use your laptop?
>>
>>51392692
Because my Laptop weighs 8.9 Pounds and I dont want to carry it everywhere. If I need to game I can use my laptop.
>>
>>51391693
why the fuck do people need a tablet?
how is it superior to a simple laptop?

after all this years i still don't see how tablets are not just some gimmick toy
>>
>>51392703
Then get a laptop that isn't a piece of shit.
>>
>>51392708
I just need a cheap word processing unit. A simple laptop is a bit big for my liking. Just personal pref.

Multitasking on the N9 isn't poor because of 2GB RAM, it's poor because the official Android builds for the N9 are garbage.

I own both a N9 & a N5, both have 2GB RAM, both are running the official stock builds. The N5 flies through everything, the N9 grinds to a crawl about 15 minutes after a reboot, even if you're only running a single app.

If you want the N9 to run properly, you either have to install a third party ROM, or wait for Google to do their fucking job & fix the hideous bugs in the official builds.

Why an android tablet, m8? I was using a Nexus 10 for 2 years before I decided to upgrade to an iPad Air 2. If there is one thing apple does right, than it's tablets.

I'm using an android phone too, btw (Note 4 running CM12.1). Once you jailbreak your iPad, you can get absolutely anything for free. It's hilariously easy.

Dudes asking for advice on an android tablet and you come in here suggesting an ipad. Get fucked you shill.

Fuck off poorfag.

Don't worry, you don't have to torrent anything. You just jailbreak, install cydia, install appcake and you can download absolutely anything directly from the app.

Yeeeahhh, If I had 750 I would buy an ultrabook
>>51393110
I see your point. I would rather just have android, its more familiar.
>>
xperia z4
600+ usd

was kinda tempted on that one, but mainly because I know i'm a pig and the dust and waterproof seemed to be a nice thing to have.

I think the price is wrong -- should be at least in the 450 tier -- and It looks it'll be hard to find them without the infamously shitty keyboard sony decided to pair them with.

what do you guise think? does the price break the deal for good?
>>
>>51393134
>I see your point. I would rather just have android, its more familiar.
You'll get used to it within hours, but I get it that you want an android tablet.
Just know that there currently is no android tablet that matches the current iPad in terms of performance, app ecosystem and battery life. I'm sorry if that sound like a shill to you, but I'm using both system and while I do prefer to use android on my phone, iOS on tablets is just unmatched.
>>
>>51393017
I like my ASUS Chromebook Flip for throwing in my bag and taking to classes with me. It's lightweight, snappy, and the battery lasts for what seems like forever.
>>
>>51392476
Easily rootable so you can remove bloat and such. I love mine

After the whole recall thing, Nvidia just re-released the Shield Tablet today for $199.

8 inch 1080p screen, 6.0 promised by the end of the year (near stock build), Tegra K1 quad core not the shitty overheating Nexus 9 variant.

Looks bretty good m8

>>51393161
Xperia tablets are fucking amazing

Same/better specs than the sTab for a lot less

>>51391693
Pixel c

>>51392708
You can't sit comfortably on a couch with a tablet.
You have to shut it down anytime you put it in your backpack, so it doesn't overheat.

Looking to buy a new tablet to replace my nexus 7, I'm currently looking at the Asus Zenpad S 8.0($300 version with 4gb RAM, 64gb on board memory, 2.3ghz intel 64bit chip) and the just announced refresh of the Nividia Shield tablet($199, nvidia chip for better gaming, 2gb RAM)

the Asus tablet seems to have a better form factor, but the nvidia tablet gets that wifi-direct nvidia controller which would mean it blows the Asus out when it comes to game emulation

the Asus might also be stuck on 5.0 lollipop on a permanent basis as tablets are prone to do, while Nvidia has pledged the refreshed Shield to get 6.0 Marshmallow before Christmas

what do??
>>
>>51398959
The $300 Asus is prone to overheating. I've been shilling the 580c $200 one itt.

Still using an HP touchpad with android, that sweet 4:3 screen ratio for muh manga is amazing, but wow is it slow now. I can barely have two apps open before it starts shitting itself, also battery drain life is doo doo.

I wish I could find a nice affordable 4:3 ratio tablet, that's not a Chinese telecast with no hope of warranty
>>
>>51399399
Read the post directly above yours
>>
>>51399515
It looks great, but my only worry is the screen size.
Resolution is pretty nice also, but would the 8inch screen be sufficient for manga, PDFs, and occasionally some comics?

Pic related, thin and smooth as fuck.

I'm looking to replace my Nexus 7 (2013). I've been considering a Zenpad S 8.0, but the Blu Studio 7 LTE caught my eye and I want to know any owner's opinions.
>7 inch, 720 x 1280 display (same as Nexus 7)
>Band 2, 3, 4, 7, 12, 17, 28 LTE
>MicroSD support up to 64GB
>Snapdragon 410, Cortex-A53, & Adreno 306
>8 & 2MP Cameras
>FM Radio
>3700 mAh battery
>1 GB or RAM
>$199 USD
It sounds like a sweet deal to me, any suggestions?
>>
>>51400832
have you ever used a phone with true blacks at night? It's so great. I used an old Galaxy Vibrant as an alarm clock because the screen worked so well for that.
TL:DR fuck off
>>
>>51400834
I guess the Nexus 7's display is actually 1200 x 1920. whoops
>>
>>51400834
Are you joking? That tablet is genuinely worse than the nexus 7 2013. I wouldn't spend more than $75 on it

Go with the zenpad
>>
>>51401057
ok, I'll do that. Thanks anon
>>
>>51399358

the specs look like shit compared to the Shield
>>
>>51401111
It has a better battery life, better screen in terms of resolution and ratio, and is much lighter and thinner
If you want to play shield games then yeah get the shield. It's a great tablet as well.

Just get a 100 dollar win book from micro center , Windows ten tablet comes with a year of office.
