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!

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.

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
