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?

If I was going to stream all of my content, I probably would have gotten an iPad. But I wanted to copy movies on it for airplane trips. Didn't look like there was an easy way to do that. I"m not gung ho about the iPhone, but Android has trade-offs also. Each to their own.

iphones and ipads are an absolute bitch for transferring video to. One of the biggest reasons I hated their product. Everything has to be converted. With android it is literally drag and drop the file and watch it in seconds.

Anybody have strong opinions on tablets? Ipad vs samsung tabs vs google tablets? Or others like lenovo or huawei?

At first, as I mentioned in another thread, I was just looking for a tablet with good palm recognition so I could walk around my classroom and write on a drawing app so students could see me doing equations without having to stand with my back to them. That's still my main goal but I might be looking for personal use as well.

I think I've moved away from the Ipad based on price and gone towards the galaxy tab A or something like that. Intrigued by google but something like the pixel slate is a mile out of what I want to spend.

Any thoughts or experience would be great to hear.

PS my self repaired Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 Edition is still going strong. Even installed custom firmware running Oreo. Probably the best electronics purchase I have ever made.

I think tablets are great under the right environment and your ability to effectively use it enough.

A lot of people like it for reading in bed or on buses or during work breaks. Videos seem to be the biggest usage followed by reading and surfing the web.

The Galaxy Tablets seem pretty good for both functionality and screen quality. I hear their batteries have been greatly improved as well.

I wouldn't get the usage to make it a worthwhile purchase.

I'm not an Apple fan, but the 32gb Ipads for about $260 is a great deal.

I love my tablet. Of course, it's a 12.9" iPad Pro.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 got given away and I'm STILL repairing it to this day.

I have iffy handwriting so I especially can't do that without palm recognition. Seems like only newish tablets with digital styli have that. At this point though I wouldn't mind the tablet also being a device I can use for internet use and google drive.

Side question. My ipad 2(fun when effort is made for grants and then eventually its obsolete technology) projects via apple tv but doesn't fill the entire screen due to 4:3 ratio ect. Do tablets like the galaxy tab project and fill the entire screen with 16:9? I have a large room that makes it hard for people to see in the back if the ipad is only mirroring part of the board with black bars.

I am digging my Dell 2-1 right now. It can be a tablet or a laptop, comes with a pen which is cool too. Mine is pricey because I went with the i7, SSD and Win 10 Pro. But there are less expensive i5 with Win 10 home version that would work for most people.

Yeah. I canít help much with that. I have no idea what will interact with your projector/Mimeo/whatever you have.

If youíre going to rely on the pen, youíll probably want to do better than the Samsung Note, IMO. I have a surface and while I donít use the pen, the functionality is good. Not sure youíre wanting to drop that kind of coin.
