Galaxy Nexux 7 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.0?
Hi, I have 2 days left on my return period at Best Buy for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.0 and although I really like my tablet, should I return it and buy the Google Nexus 7 10 inch?
I want to hear from you and what you think. Keep it? Refund? Go for Jelly Bean? Wait another 6 months until Christmas and buy the Microsoft Surface?
I'm an early adopter by buying the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.0, and I'm not experiencing buyer's remorse because it performs as intended for my school and work plans. I tried the Acer Transformer tablet and it was not as good.
I downloaded a few Android apps so I'm reading my text files and acrobat pdf files perfectly - and with 9 to 10 hours of battery time. Pretty good.
I just won't know if the Microsoft Surface will have 25 hours of battery time and a keyboard included, etc...
My reasons for keeping the Samsung so far...
1. No Google spying. The Nexus 7 wants location tracking, web history, search behavior, etc., as a tradeoff for it's use.
2. MicroSD slot. The Nexus doesn't have it.
3. Standby mode. The Acer doesn't have it.
My feeling is that as long as I can get 4+ years out of this tablet, reading .pdf files for work and school, then it's worth the money I spent on it.
Even if the battery capacity drops to 70% after frequent use.
What are your thoughts?
