Tablet advice

Dumbass me went and dropped my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet on the floor. Now when I can get it to turn on it stays on as long as I don't let is sleep. If I let it go to sleep I have to power it up all over again

Contacted Samsung support and they basically said it would cost me around $200 to get it fixed since it is two years old.

My question is this... Is it worth paying the money to keep it alive? I'm not finding any tablets out there that rival what this beast has specs wise unless I go into the $500 tablets. Considering I spent almost that much on this one, I'm not too thrilled about forking over that much money again after only two years.

What would you guys suggest? Should I look into some of these $300 tablets that are slightly below spec or just pay the repair costs to keep this one going?

I should add. I will not ever purchase an ipad so we can leave that off the list of suggestions.

android all the way baby. I actually like what the Nexus 9 offers save one major problem. No SD card slot.

There were some super cheap Nexus 9 deals on black Friday for $200 that I keep hoping reappear but haven't. I keep looking for a reason to upgrade from my 2013 Android tablet and other than missing that Nexus deal haven't found anything.

Sound like just hunt up a deal or refurbished from Samsung. Spending 200 for an old tablet seems like a loss.

I'm inclined to just get that nexus because it is pure android. Just not really ready to spend $350 on a tablet. Especially one that doesn't have upgradeable storage.

If you dropped it... the chances are that it is simply a loose ribbon cable that is connected well enough to send your haptic touches through the system but the pin to wake on touch is not making good contact.

If you are gonna toss it anyway I would look for a youtube video showing you where the ribbon connections are and would reseat them before going out and spending more money.

and damn if it didn't work. Thanks for pointing that out. I honestly didn't think the tablet would be that easy to pull apart.

Jeez, you can have your Windows PC, Android Smartphone, and what have you, but when it comes to tablets, just buy an iPad/ipad mini and be done with it. There is nothing as good for consumption. And yes, I know you said no to it, but its silly not to consider it.


Edit: See you fixed it.

I accept Paypal and Chiefs tickets (no pre-season).

Glad it was that easy for you. I bought the wife the same tablet along with the Bluetooth Keyboard/Stand/Case. She loves that thing. Better for her than a laptop. She barely needs her desktop computer anymore.

I don't disagree with either of you that it is a great tablet but I hate their ecosystem and the fact i cannot make it look the way I want. I like to cusotmize. Certain apps I must have are not available in the app store either. KODI being number one. Plus they are just too overpriced for an item that has no customization.

Hate Apple. I like having the ability to install apps from various sources on Android tablets so I'd never go that route. I also have looked at the Nexus 9 as my future upgrade. I've been running an HP Touchpad with Cyanogen Mod on it but it's getting very dated at this point.

yeah we have two touchpads with CM on them and they are just getting too damn slow now. But they lasted forever.

Pretty much, we had a snafu and ended up getting 3 at a really good deal. All work fine and never had a crack, etc. happen at all to any of them. Great tablets but yep, too slow now.

I have an iPhone but didn't want an Apple tablet because it is so much easier to drag and drop videos from my hard drive on Android than screwing with iTunes.
