I am looking into the Nexus 10 for predominantly educational use with a close second being media. I am an engineering student and I also own/ heavily use an Android smartphone and Macbook Pro.
All of my textbooks are digital and all last semester I got used to reading them on my laptop and my phone. I would really like to use a tablet instead because the screen on my phone was too small to read for long periods of time and I don't enjoy reading them on my laptop as it heats up and loses battery life quickly.
The main reason the Nexus 10 tops my list is because I want the high screen resolution for clearest text possible and I also watch a fair amount of movies/ TV and frequently video chat.
I also looked into the Galaxy Note 10.1 and while it has amazing productivity features for note taking and multitasking, I am fearful of tech redundancy. I use my laptop heavily for word processing, email and research so I worry that if I start using the GN, my laptop would be underused.
But I REALLY like the note taking features on the Galaxy Note.
Does anyone have any suggestions for:
- any apps in the Play Store that offer similar note taking capabilities to S Notes
- some great PDF annotation apps as my lecture slides and textbooks are all digital
Additionally I would appreciate any comments on the performance of the Nexus 10 in general/ in college. I plan on using a stylus.
