iPad had better reviews when it came to screen quality (the newest one) and better apps according to reviews. The Galaxy has a stylus which can be a selling point, but you can buy one for the iPad too. I don't know how much I would use one really.
Anytime I have asked which tablet to get it's been a 50/50 split on which to get. Even got that when I asked different Best Buy employees.
[View Full Quote]I also lean towards the iPad because my Apple products have outlasted any PC we have ever owned. I still use a very old iPod. Runs as good as the day I got it for Christmas back in 2005. It's a little bulky compared to the news ones, but still functional and has a lot of space on it.
Whichever model I choose my dad says he is already getting me the 32GB. And whichever model I choose will determine my next phone choice too. Currently have a Droid Incredible 2 and I could take it or leave it. Have never loved it.
Though at this point I am still torn on which one to get. Obviously, I am not getting it by Christmas since I haven't decided yet.
What made you go with the Galaxy over the iPad?
well, I do in fact have an ipad 2. It's fine but I feel confined. I don't need training wheels and after using my android phone I like the possibilities. Just like both the process of personalizing my user experience abt as much as the result itself.
Important to bear in mind that there is no perfect product. And what's highly valuable to me may not be for you. IPad certainly has edge in display. A 10 vs 9.2 let's say. Not determinative to me.
