FM = Futuremark score Started off with a Nexxus 7(FM: 10554), very good value, found the screen a little small, gave to a family member. Then aquired the mighty Nvidia Shield(FM: 29991), great tablet, good value, bigger screen but still not big enough. It was re-called by manuf so took refund instead of replacement. Pity there isn't a Shield 10+ Contenders: Samsung Galaxy TAB S 10.5 WI-FI 16GB SM-T800 16 GB 3072 MB Android 10.5 -inch LCD FM: 13217 £229.94 Spec: http://www.futuremark.com/hardware/mobile/Samsung+Galaxy+Tab+S+10.5+(Exynos+5+Octa)/review Lots of good reviews, great screen, reported drawbacks are Samsung bloatware/front-end(Cyanogenmod?) & some people mention occasional sluggishness(Cyanogenmod?) Sony Xperia Z2 10.1 inch Tablet (Black) - (Qualcomm 2.3GHz, 3GB RAM, 16GB Memory, Google Android 4.4) FM: 18327 £335.83 Spec: http://www.futuremark.com/hardware/mobile/Sony+Xperia+Z2+(MSM8274AB+v3)/review Bit more power. Samsung Galaxy TAB S 10.5 WI-Fi+lte 16GB 16 GB 3072 MB Android 10.5 -inch LCD FM: 19850 £339.37 Spec: http://www.futuremark.com/hardware/mobile/Samsung+Galaxy+Tab+S+Broadband+LTE-A/review More powerful version of TAB S which includes 4G/Lte support. Looks good! Sony Xperia Z4 10.1 inch Tablet with Keyboard (Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, 3Gb RAM, 32Gb storage, WLAN, BT, Camera, Android 5.0) FM: 24145 £439.99 Spec: http://www.futuremark.com/hardware/mobile/Sony+Xperia+Z4+Tablet/review Looks nice, as you would expect at this price. However, trade slightly less power for £100 less and "better" screen on TAB S/Lte? Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (Core i3) FM: 33613 £575 Spec: http://www.futuremark.com/hardware/mobile/Microsoft+Surface+Pro+3+(Core+i3)/review A great annoyance is when you install the Android version of your favourite win desktop app only to find they've added adverts and changed the interface giving you less control, what is up with that? Would be great being able to install win desktop apps on a tablet, but how does this play out in practice? Will all win apps install? Will they be exactly how they are on a Win desktop? Another thing that annoys me about tablets is the lack of proper firewall and equivalent win desktop controls: msconfig, startup, services etc However £575 seems like silly money for a tablet and some say the tablet itself isn't that great. I hear MS are talking about introducing win 10 support for android tablets, but could be slow rolling out. ---------------------------------- Thoughts?
