what tabletesque type computery thingy to buy just for browsing the net..?
Even for just browsing you will notice quality of screen, speed of processor, etc. Also weight of device in your hand varies hugely meaning there is probably no perfect device.
Having said all that I recommend ipad mini or Samsung note 8 as best all rounders. We have both in the house and argue about which is best…Posted 4 years agosimonlovell999Member
I got a nexus 7 and its good for the net/games. Gets updates first, easy to hold and handle. Was looking at a 10 inch, but too heavy, need two hands holding the device, which doesn’t work that well when trying to use. Currys are doing the nexus 7 for £189.99 with £20 voucher!Posted 4 years ago
I know jack all about i pads and nexus’s and kindle’s etc
but i fancy a tablet device just for browsing the net, what decent options are there?
my dad has just got a kindle fire which seems decent enough but screen size means having to constantly zoom in/out to read anything, the i pads have a better size screen but they seem quite expensive…is there a middle ground?
and any tips on which and where to buy?
cheers!Posted 4 years agostumpyjonSubscriber
Stay away from Apple, very good but very expensive. Samsung Galaxy tab 2 10.1 here, I like the 10″ screen, wouldn’t want to go smaller for browsing. About £240, 16Gb but also takes SD cards so mines 48Gb at the moment. Don’t bother with 3G, most places I use mine now have WiFi. Android is the most popular OS at the moment, so generally more apps.Posted 4 years agojoolsburgerMember
I have an Ipad, my son has a galaxy tab and I’ve just bought a Asus 7 inch tab for my youngest. Based on product development speeds and the fact that today’s top of the range tab is tomorrows shelfware I’d get the Asus because it’s cheap.
However there is no doubting that the ipad has the best screen (mainly as it’s bigger) fastest responses and is easiest to use but it’s almost 4 times the price.Posted 4 years agoDibbsMember
I’m currently typing this on my Galaxy Tab 10.1, I’ve had it for a year or so and I’ve been very pleased with it. The Tab 2 appears to be a lower price and spec. My Tab was the same price as an iPad when I bought it.Posted 4 years ago
My daughter has a Galaxy Note 10.1 and that would be my current choice.NorthwindSubscriber
Is it to be as well as a proper computer? Tablets are great as far as they go but it’s the only application I can think of where people are convinced a smaller screen’s the way forward. I’d not buy one for general use any more than I’d buy a 14 inch monitor for my PC or a 20 inch TV for the living room.Posted 4 years ago
