Re: The purpose of tablet ?
I found myself in a similar situation when I purchased my iPad. I had it for a few months but still couldn't figure out why it's more useful than my laptop and my smartphone. It's a nice to have, not a need to have for me.

Re: It comes down to how you plan to use it!
One has to be selecive. There are low quality products too, offered at cheap price and listing high specs.

Re: amazing...

@shakeeb      It will be a game changer for Tablets and computing in general - if this battery issue can be improved.  

I have "power-save" active but I guess I might not be getting a good read on the situation because I have failed to account for the amount of power it takes to play games - which I do more than I used too.

Re: cost isnt everything

@shakeeb      I do actually.   As long as you have the android OS then you can take advantage of the basic uses.  I started off with a 7" tab to see if I would like it at all - well I did for the reasons mentioned, but strangely the older model has features I like better than the 10" I bought later.

It seems the 7" is louder and holds a charge longer and charges faster.  All pluses in my book, yet sadly the screen is too small for my tired eyes to look at for too long.

@Nemos...  I think there are many low quality tech devices out there.

Re: Phablets
@ tzubair... I'm not saying it's not one because it wasn't being called a phablet.

I'm pointing out that I think it sounds like a stupid term and I commend samsung for not marketing it as such.

 "be careful especially with the low quality products in the market"

hmmm sorry for this comment but I doubt about it, as it is very difficult to find low quality product in high tech products, have in mind that in most cases is the same factory that produce the low cost product and the famous brand product.

Re: amazing...
"...The only thing I would even consider doing that for would be for longer battery life.   I am still waiting on that."

@ Technocrati – Till date I haven't found a long lasting battery life tablet. I have seen Sony Xperia tablets using a power saving function to extend the battery life.  I see this function is working fine on my Xperia Z2 smartphone.

Re: cost isnt everything
@Technocrati – Do you think having a low quality tab is much better than not having one?

Re: It comes down to how you plan to use it!
@mak63 – yes they are everywhere, customers need to be extra cautious when buying a tablet. Some of these tablets don't even have a brand name or a website of the manufacturer.
