"G-Slate beats iPad for me"3.5 starson by edterry0101
Pros: Size is comfortable, screen is clear and bright, tons of apps, WiFi vs 3/4g; no contract.Front and rear camera is excellent.
Cons: 4g uses battery and few options to slow it down. Some android apps have not been updated to work with this software release.
Summary: I used a iPad over a year and hate the socialist control by Apple, many apps are totally worthless but then so are some of the android. So I can honest do a compare. This "slate" "tablet" is far better than the iPad. My hands dont get tired holding it, there is more flexability in using the screens and it is rock solid on WiFi, iPad has a weak WiFi radio. I do not travel around much, so WiFi keeps it going great. When I do travel I buy the plan $10-30 depending on how long i need cellular access. I love the fact it switches so fast to WiFi and saves the data usage on the cellular plan.If there were one thing I would add would be a better speaker, that is the only item that is better on the iPad. The screen switches position very quickly without the lag in the iPad, if you play a game it is very responsive. I plugged in a USB keyboard and off I went using it vs the screen keyboard. Next software update will add even more USB functions. If you want options and letting yourself decide what is best for you, then you will not go wrong with this choice, if you want to stumble along with someone else telling you what is best for you then get an iPad.
