Best battery, best viewing, best gesture support, best sleep wake feature, best game/app enjoyment, and best weight to size ratio.

But its a premium device, make sure you already have enough money for phone and PC/Mac before you consider this.

The other one that comes close is samsung's 2014 edition 10.1 tablet, heavier, less battery backup, harder to navigate and lack of optimised tablet apps.. but cheaper and is a all in one device.. consider the LTE version.

Android have awesome launchers, but the apps are bloated phone versions. The navigation is horrible also.. the 3 software keys / or the 3 hardware buttons is a pain to press in 10 inch formfactor unless you have 3 arms.

If you have rooted your tablets, you should install GMD GestureControl, you know what you are missing all those great navigation gesture already on the iPad.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-01-22 06:51 from Kg%v - click to readYes i do agree with you, instead of tablet you can go for a fablet like galaxy note 3, xperia z,galaxy s4, windows mobile - lumia 1520 or metal body htc one max which have nice cameras compared to tablets. If you fell like android is waste you can root your android phones and put ios into it or you can make partition of it and use android, ios simultaneously, hmm many people don't know this so they still go for iphone and ipads which have less performance than android phones. I suggest better go with samsumg because we have lot of customization options not only that we can find lot number of features. Present leading(benchmark results) smart phone is samsung galaxy round even better than note 3.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-01-16 04:30 from PGXj - click to readThats what im saying, people have tablets and are feeling pressured to buy one if they dont have already but they end up collecting dust. I regret buying tablet, its utterly useless for someone who have an ok smartphone with reasonable display size (4 inch is not reasonable size, maybe thats why iphone owners use tablets more than Android phone owners).

Now my daughter want iPad Mini w.Retina, i take the chance since its smaller and hopefully isnt as useless and wasted as a regular iPad or 10 inch androids. I suggested she buy a 5 inch phone instead, much better for games and browsing, a true all in one device but kids, and girls in particular, dont want to be practical, trends matters more.

For adults i think a combination of the hype, lack of knowledge and unrealistic expectations is the main driving force for buying tablets. For iphone owners its the need for a bigger display device, obviously a 4 inch phone is not a viable all in one device.

It still have the same godly battery.. I never use it.. so i just have to charge it 12 times per year. Thats 1 charge good for 1 mth standby ;D. It still receive notification & stuff from apps.

So i will not worry about battery so much.

ro do a reboot like all electronic devices. my Air is great and really fast. better double check your Air maybe its fake one.

the Question is how long with it stay that way. battery life issue is very common to all electronics just buy yourself an extra charger to bring with you anywhere.

I got the Air because it was a bigger change from the iPad 4. Its way Faster, And it feels great While holding it with the smaller Bezel. and it very thin.

the only change happen on the mini 2 was the speed and retina screen. but still a worthy change if you decide to get the mini 2.
