Galaxy Note Pro 12..2 VS. IPad

Postby nismoZtuner » Tue Apr 01, 2014 2:43 pm

Need a bit of help choosing between those two- not sure which one to go with. :confused:

At the moment I have an old Asus Transformer Prime.. (need an upgrade)

I usually use a table to watch online videos like youtube or web videos, reading and web surfing.

In my opinion i think most people just go with an ipad because its from Apple (bandwagon) but ehh what do you think?

does anyone have some feed back on that note pro?

Apple has a much better record than Samsung as far as hardware promptly receiving the latest software updates. Also, the Cyclone CPU cores in the iPad are still the fastest on the market. Plus, tablet app selection on iOS is still much, much better than it is on Android.

There are plenty of people who will buy Apple products just because it's Apple, but it's important to realize that as recently as ten years ago, almost no one bought Apple products, period. There's a reason that's changed over the last decade.

yea, apple's still a more refined product. but for most users with very basic needs, the ipad crashes less often and has more apps. samsung does create a very competitive product though, and if you've bought into the samsung ecosystem, there's some cool things you can do with interaction between TV, bluray, tablet/phone, etc. Plus, the android tablets are much cheaper than their IOS counterparts.

Personally I still use an iPad, despite that I'm a developer who's a big fan of open source and the android philosophy. But don't be fooled, the gap is smaller than most apple fanboys will admit. Innovation is happening across all platforms, and it's good to be a consumer in the middle of all this

We are kind of drifting a bit off topic but that never bothered us. Anyway, as far as the whole Apple vs Android thing goes, I have an IPhone and a Kindle (Android).


I'm thinking most likely my next phone will be Android rather than IPhone. Most software is created for both platforms so that's pretty much equal but the IPhone is just a battery killer. As far as the ethics of corporations I used to try to take that into consideration but let's face it we are talking Apple and Google - so that's a bit like comparing Hitler to Stalin in terms of who is the bigger butcher. (Stalin from what I've read but that's really a whole different story).

I totally agree. As far as tablets go, I've moved away from Android tablets and I got a Dell Venue 8 Pro and installed Windows 8.1 Pro on it. Personally, I hate Windows 8 on the Desktop but it is so perfect for a tablet. I don't get all bent out of shape regarding apps because I don't use it as a pure consumption device. So I use it for quick work items that I don't feel like using a scaled down version of, such as Office, WebEx, and things like that, but I digress.

Are you set on the 12.2 because the Note 10.1 2014 and Tab Pro 10 is at $200 - $250 cheaper than the 12.2.

Goog is not in the hardware market. So it's really Samsung vs Apple more than Google vs Apple in terms of revenue from hardware purchases :-)

why not, What if I want to play flash videos on the web?

I usually miss some TV shows because I choose to spend a little more time on the gym- by the time I get home I have to watch them online..

Crap, you're making me do this, aren't you.

Damn.

Ahem...

"There's an app for that."

Also, Flash for Android is EOL. You might be able to find a copy that works, but it'll be completely unsupported going forward.
