    I've had the same experience with a Samsung phone so I have sworn off Samsung phones/tablets/computers for now.

    I tried out both sizes of ipad at BestBuy tonight. The mini wasn't bad but I prefer the larger size, and I don't see that the ipad air is significantly better for me than my ipad 2.

    I let my kids talk me into switching from an iphone to a Galaxy 4. Can't wait for the contract to end so I can switch back. Not at all pleased with Samsungs Android.

    This.

    I didn't know I "needed" an iPad Air to replace my 4th Gen iPad, until I tried one. Ridiculously light! You have been warned!

    No single raindrop considers itself responsible for the flood.

    Samsung has to be the worst thing to happen to Android. Sure they produce a ton of products but their implementation of Android sucks. I had a Galaxy S2 and it was so bad it made me want my iPhone 3GS back.

    My son had a Galaxy S2. What a piece of junk.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    FYI is anyone is interested. I was able to pickup a Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB as a gift today at Office Depot for 179 and I got a $20 office depot gift card which brings it's real price down to $159. That's a steal. I think the sale may end today on the 16GB but the 32GB is on sale for 229 until 12/21
