Wednesday Poll: Do You Own an Android Tablet?

Android tablets – there are a million different models to choose from, more than half of which are probably Samsung-made. There are Nexus tablets from Google, Transformer Pads from ASUS, and of course, plenty of Galaxy Tabs and Notes from Samsung.

Deals are constantly being held online for tablets, so if you don’t already own one, we would be quite surprised.

The last time we ran this poll, back in October of last year, 25% of folks said they did not own an Android tablet and 75% said yes, they do own an Android tablet. A few people mentioned that they owned a tablet made by Microsoft or Apple, so of course, that adds to the “no” category, given that those are not Android tablet.

Let’s update our numbers to see if anything has changed.

If you have been reluctant to purchase an Android tablet, we would love to know why. Tell us below in the comments section what would get you to take the plunge?

    I use the nexus 7 but when it comes to Web browsing my moto x simply preforms much better

  • I have the Nexus 7 2013 32GB. As always with Nexus devices, it’s awesome!

    I’ve got a Sony Xperia Tablet Z.

    Glad to see I’m not the only one here that’s addicted to a Chromebook now. I have a Nexus 7 2nd gen but hardly touch it since I got a C710. I use my Moto X for all my app needs and Chromebook for the web. It’s so much better having a real keyboard and a display that keeps itself propped up at any angle.

  • Jingling Johnny

    I had 3 Kindle Fires in my family, recently sold 2 of them, still have 1. I’ve been through an ASUS Transformer TF101 back in the day and a couple of Nexus 7’s…have never been able to find a good use for Android tablet (unless you’re a gamer). I have 2 Surface tablets (a Surface RT and a Surface Pro 2) and will never buy another Android tablet. Love Android phones and have been an Android user since the Droid Incredible, but in my opinion, tablets should be running Windows. Again, just my opinion!

    All versions of Kindle Fire run Android, so Yes.

  • Fred

    I will buy an Android tablet when they finally make one with a 4:3 or 3:2 form factor. I do not want a 16:9 screen.

  • I have two and a half Android tablets. I’ve got an LTE 2013 Nexus 7, a Nexus 10, and a Sony Z Ultra GPE, which we all know is really just a small tablet that makes phone calls.

  • floorman63

    I own 3 as well, Nexus 10, Verizon LG G Pad 8.3, and Verizon Motorola Xoom. Love all of them!

  • Big rob

    I have 4 in the house a Motorola zoom…old I know but still works like new, an Asus transformer pad tf700t…that I’m not to happy with right now, and two nexus 7 tablets one for each of my daughters

  • Matthew Toomey

    And I don’t use either of them.

  • Serpico

    2013 Nexus 7 and MS Surface Pro 2 256GB. Those are my daily drivers. Moto X as a side.

  • RichHomieGuan

    I’ve never thought I would ever say this despite my gripe with ultra large phones… but with the short amount of time I’ve spent with a Note 3, yeah I would just use that and my ultrabook and N7 2013 was just ignored into oblivion lol there’s much improvements needed on the N7 and here’s hoping to see a Nexus 8 for I/O to the size dimensions of an iPad Mini!!!

  • JeremyRoenickDanceParty

    I LOVE my gpad 8.3 Google play edition. Perfect form factor. Don’t think I can ever go back to 10″

  • Donald Motley

    My large-screen smartphone –maybe some day a phablet– meets all my needs. Away from home, it’s lightweight and pocketable. At home, I have a TV.

  • Trysta

    Nexus 7 (2013). Still a good tablet but I must admit I use it mostly for eBook reading now (and occasional games that benefit from that in between size).

    I got an iPad Air a couple of months after the Nexus 7 and it has consumed my tablet usage. Not exactly sure why. Still glad I have both though. The Nexus 7 2013 still has one of the best screens on a mobile device for the price. I’m planning on keeping the Nexus 7 for as long as it works since I suspect Google won’t be coming out with a replacement (I don’t want anything bigger. Slightly smaller would actually be best).

  • Nick

    I had an asus transformer for about a month. Then I realized I had 0 use for a tablet. Sold it and upgraded my phone to a gs4. I’m now eyeing the G3, which leaves me with even less of a reason to own a tablet….

  • pilot25

    Can anyone tell me if the Wall Street Journal app on android is the same as the ipad app? Its the only reason I have an ipad. The WSJ android app was so atrocious but that was a year ago. Something tells me nothing has changed but I can’t say. I would love to dump the ipad and get the next greatest android tablet.

    Anyone help here?

  • capncoad

    I voted a tentative no. I have an iPad Air, and while I think it’s the best 10″ tablet on the market, I am looking for a smaller 7/8″ as a secondary tablet that can be used easily when traveling. In that area of the market, Apple doesn’t compete as strongly when it comes to pricing on the Retina Mini (which I know is a great tablet too).

    Right now my eye is on either the LG Pad or the Samsung Note Pro 8.4, or possibly the rumored Nexus 8 later in the month. Even the Kindle Fire HDX may be an option given the tie in to my Prime Account. There are so many choices it’s ridiculous.

  • bhayes444

    I used to have a Nexus 7 (2012) to go along with my nexus 4, but I didn’t really use it because it was literally a larger version of my phone and didn’t intrigue me enough to pick it up and carry it around vs. just pulling my phone out of my pocket. Right now I have an iPad mini with retina and it is pretty fantastic. I like having the best of both worlds. With the super customizability of Android as my phone (so it does what I want and not the other way around), and arguably one of the best tablets on the market right now, I’m in a happy place!

  • james dawley

    Screw the nexus 10 mine constantly reboots randomly I’ll never buy another Samsung device ever I’ve got screwed twice nexus 10 an Samsung galaxy nexus in Verizon

  • Kevin

    Use my Galaxy Pro 8.4 everyday….the screen is amazing. I lIke that my google apps are synced between phone and tablet.

  • dm33

    Pure iOS family but have a Nexus 7 because of its ability to have multiple userids. Having multiple kids and adults each having their own iPad was not feasible, so it made a lot more sense to get one Nexus 7 and have everyone share. Working fairly well. iOS8 missed the boat. If Apple had added multi-user support we’d be back in iOS world, buts its not happening.

  • subiedude85

    Still rocking the TF-101… Really ready for an upgrade but it’s not in the cards yet.

  • gfacekilla01

    I have 2 tablets. LG GPad on Verizon and Dell Venue 8. I use my phone for talk and text only. Everything else on the LTE GPad. Working out good so far.

  • Dee

    OG nexus 7 and 2013 nexus 7, also Asus transformer OG and Asus transformer infinity.

  • sski66

    N7 & I love it. I hope this year the ONLY things they change is give us a higher rez screen, make it faster, & we can always use more battery, that’s it, don’t change the size, for me it’s perfect.

  • NorCalGuy

    Own 3 lookn for my next one…hopefully something to replace my og XOOM both my n7’s are doing great but a new 10″ would be awsome

    I love my Nexus 7 2013!!!!

  • Daniel Richardson

    Yep 2013 Nexus 7, and LG Gpad 8.3

  • trwb

    Gave my Nexus 7 2013 away. Its a pretty crummy tablet IMO.

    • JoshGroff

      My only problem was it didn’t offer much of a jump on screen size to justify the secondary device. (I had a note 2 at the time)

      • trwb

        Yea 7 is too small for a tablet these days. I also didn’t like the touch response and design of the n7 either.

        • LionStone

          Yep, the touch issues are taking it’s toll… everything seems to need 4-5 taps before it will respond…can’t wait to upgrade!

  • Richard Giordano

    I have Google Nexus 7 2012 and very happy with how its held up for its age. Cant wait for Google I/O to upgrade to the nexus 8. How ever if it ends up being made by htc I might reconsider and pick up a lg g pad 8.3 google play edition instead.

  • Michael Shorey

    i have a motorola xoom wingray and the galaxy tab 2 7.0. the xoom still does a great job and the tab 2 sucks a big one. i don’t feel terribly compelled to upgrade because, aside from resolution, the xoom is still relevant to my daily use.

  • jbworldwide1

    Samsung Galaxy TabPro 8.4. Put Nova on that sucker and go!

  • pball_inuyasha

    Had a 2012 Nexus 7 and then upgraded to the 2013 N7. I mostly use it for reading books and comics around the house. Also use it as a basic laptop replacement when I’m away from home since I can surf the web, remote into my desktop, and other things on the go.Oh I also watch 1080 video on it when I’m away from home.

  • Danny

    2013 Nexus 7 use it when I’m at home and replace my phone (texts get sent to it so I can text from it so my HTC one just sits around )

  • Steve

    Only reason I do not own an Android tablet was because my company gave me a free iPad2 a few years back. I prefer Android, but at the same time, I wasn’t going to pass up a free iPad.

  • Asmodai

    I don’t have a tablet yet. I don’t really “need” one and I’ve been able to keep at bay my tech geek urge to get one by telling myself I’m waiting for 64bit Android. Not sure what I’m going to do once they actually come out though… I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. So far so good though.

  • chris

    had a transformer prime but dropped it and shattered the screen. waiting for the next android device to wow me.

  • Blue Sun

    My Xoom tablet is somewhere in my office…

  • Daniel Russell

    I’ve got a Nexus 7 (2013) and an Asus transformer prime. Man, two VERY different experiences. My prime was probably my worst purchase ever. It was laggy and buggy and it’s practically unusable now.

  • Rupali Jadhav

    Only zapkoo.in

  • Ballerado

    I keep waiting for the next best thing. I hope to own one by the end of the year. Probably a Nexus or a Note, but I have been considering the Surface Pro 3 as well…

  • DennisHeffernan

    Yes, and I won it from you! 🙂

  • cweb69

    I own 3. Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 10, and an old Kindle Fire…

  • Wmh3

    Nexus 10 (still the best)

  • FknTwizted

    I have the n7 2013 and love it only issue is you have to be holding it for the screen to recognize your touch… I do have the Lenovo 13 with w8 on it and i must say it is growing on me and once they start getting to the point where they have the a good library of apps, apple may see their market share drop.

    • M3D1T8R

      What do you mean you have to be holding it for the screen to recognize your touch? I sure don’t have this issue. Can use the screen in hand, rested on couch/bed, or while it’s sitting in my wireless charger, all no problem.

      • FknTwizted

        I don’t know just when i have it laying on say my bed and i touch the screen it doesn’t react to my touch however when i have it in hand works flawless with or without a case.

  • Trevor

    I have a 2013 Nexus 7. Use it more than my laptop.

  • Lumia Nexus

    when a high end android phone on a 5.5″ screen lags how the heck someone can use an android tablet which may be slower and laggier than a pc running windows 98 on a pentium 1

    • M3D1T8R

      Umm.. Not quite an apt comparison there. My N7 2013 has a quirk once in a while sure, but generally performs admirably.

  • Gomzy

    Last year I was in the market for a Tablet, and my first choice was a Nexus 10. The one feature I really liked was the Multi-user account feature. Most families just have 1 tablet, so having this feature really helps. But my Nexus 10 was restarting randomly, the video conferencing didnt work, so just gave it back. Took an iPad even though it didnt have that feature. I guess I sacrificed some features for a stable and eco-system rich device.

  • KChristainsen

    No but hopefully my answer will change after Google I/O. Hoping for an 8 inch nexus tablet.

  • Foramex

    I have an Tab 2, but I must admit I’m using my iPad 2 more oftenly… I really can’t explain why, I just do.

  • hoodieNation

    2012 Nexus 7. I will use it when I can pry it away from my kids. I can’t say that I actually need it at all, but it was cheap enough that I don’t regret buying.

  • Chris Lockard

    I bought a 2012 nexus 7 32gb for $100 on eBay a few months ago and for Christmas I got a tab 3 that the kids use.

  • Garrett

    I have a 2013 nexus 7 and I like it but I wouldn’t miss it if I didn’t have it

    • Garrett

      I actually plan on mounting mine in my car since I hardly have a use for it

  • Keith

    I have never been convinced I need a tablet. My phone (MotoX) can do anything a tablet can, (that I know of) and I use my laptop for anything else, such as this typing right now. Why do I need a tablet?

    • Mahercs

      I don’t know that anyone “needs” a tablet, but to compare to your phone, some folks like the larger size. To compare to the laptop, some people like the smaller size and portability. My Droid Maxx does everything I need, but I hate giving it to the kids, and on occasion, I need a bigger screen to watch/read on, and getting the laptop out is more hassle sometimes.

    • M3D1T8R

      Larger screen much more comfortable and usable for watching video than on a <5" screen.

      Also 6+ hours screen on time vs about half that for most phones. Not having to worry about low battety half way into a movie or whatever is very nice.

    • Chris Hannan

      I used to think the same way until I owned my first tablet. I thought the iPad was a joke when it was first announced. It was actually the day it came out, I just happened to be going to Best Buy that day and I saw the iPad there. Played with it for about half an hour and decided I wanted to get one. Now I can’t imagine not having a tablet.

      Right now, I have an iPad 3 and a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. I haven’t really used my iPad much since getting my Galaxy Tab Pro, since the screen is almost as big but the overall size is much smaller than the iPad. I use my tablet mainly for Internet browsing and messaging, but I do anything I’d do on my phone on my tablet.

      The main reasons I have a tablet are battery life, screen size, and portability. Using my tablet saves my phone’s battery and the screen is much larger, but still way more portable than my laptop. I can actually fit my Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 in my pocket. Can’t even do that with an iPad mini, which has a smaller, but wider screen.

      • Keith

        Saving the battery on my phone is one thing I have never considered. What sort of battery life does your tablet get?

        • Chris Hannan

          My iPad easily gets over 10 hours of actual use. I’ve never gotten less than 10 hours of battery life on my iPad except with the brightness all the way up.

          My Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 gets 7-8 hours.

  • Jpx

    NEXUS 7 + CHROMECAST = Bliss

  • wh1te_mag1c

    I own the N7 2013 and I like it quite a bit. I wish it was 8″, though. 7″ feels just a tad bit too small, whereas 10″ would feel a bit big, if the iPad 2 is anything to go by.

  • GBRunner24

    I’ve been through so many tablets is hard to keep track. Had an OG nexus 7, which I sold for the 2013 when it came out. Never used it. Sold it for a Nexus 10 because I thought I would use the larger screen. Never used it. I then picked up an original surface, which I never used because of the lack of apps. Finally picked up Surface Pro and I only keep that around since it can be a mobile Photoshop studio. It doesn’t help that I have 2 phone lines (Nexus 5 work and Wood Moto X personal), so anything without a keyboard is a bit unnecessary.

  • burpootus

    I consider myself an Android person, but I own an iPad for my tablet. The main reason is real time audio processing, which for some reason Android refuses to implement. The whole musical production landscape has shifted over the last several years and Apple has been right in the middle of it, leaving Android behind. If you play guitar, you can basically replace your whole rig (not including the guitar of course) with an iRig and an amplifier/effects app. Otherwise I pretty much despise IOS compared to Android, especially having to use iTunes software to do something so simple as move an mp3 into the Amplitube app to play along with on guitar. It’s really sad that Android has shut the door on the whole world of musical production and ceded it to Apple.

    • James

      A great point. I agree capability like this remains a major iPad marketing point, especially for the creative professional crowd. I hope Android can pick up its game here.

    • Manthas

      I’m really curious here, is it that the apps are built into iOS, or is it just that the third party app developers that have created the apps you’re using on iOS haven’t created apps for Android? I think you can see where the difference would be for comparison purposes.

      • burpootus

        You can hook up a guitar to the micro usb port of an Android device and there is a lag between the time you strike the string and hear the note. The audio processing is not handled by the OS in a real time manner. Or maybe it’s at the hardware level, I am not educated in these things enough to know, but it makes it impossible to play an instrument.

      • burpootus

        Due to this fundamental limitation, the 3rd party app ecosystem just doesn’t exist for Android.

        • Manthas

          Got it! Thanks for the clarification here; that is definitely a pretty severe handicap, and hopefully one that can be addressed in the future.

  • Rupali Jadhav

    New Tablets going to launch in 2015, with some amazing specs
    Read @

  • BrianCherry

    Nope, Windows 8 tablets FTW!! The iPads are just pointless and Android tablets are just as nearly useless except that you can root them for a slightly better experience, but until I can stream Netflix in the background, browse the internet, and read my RSS all at the same time. Theres no reason for an iPad or an Android tablet. $150 Dell Venue Pro all the way.

  • DJ SPY

    I have a nexus 7 2013 and a nexus 10 that just sits there unused. I prefer the 7 because of its compact size. Once the Nexus 8 rolls out, I’ll be buying it. I think it’ll be the perfect compromise between the 7 and the 10.

    • wh1te_mag1c

      I’m going to swap out my 7 for an 8, just the same. The 7 feels just a bit small.

  • Jon

    I do but I’m planning on replacing it with Bay Trail Windows 8 tablet.

    • James

      Can I ask a question I think many of us are holding…


      • James

        So far 11 guest upvotes and counting. Not suspicious at all…

      • Jon

        I have nothing against my Android tablet and my use case isn’t likely to fit the majority but I’m looking into getting a tablet that can be docked for desktop use running desktop software. I’m eyeing Ubuntu Touch but that’s a ways away. I also like to run VMs. The new Bay Trail chips with virtualization acceleration and upcoming 4 GB of RAM tablets, they’d be decent for that. Hardware accerlation for SSH encryption is nice too. I also, like running Cygwin for many Linuxy things on non-Linux devices. There are equivalent things on Android (it’s running on Linux after all) especially with root but many aren’t robust enough for me. Too bad I still can’t access to NFS shares on Windows though.

        • James

          Thanks for the response. I realized after the fact my question might not have appeared as serious (as it was intended). And yes, I would agree your use case “isn’t likely to fit the majority.” 🙂

      • anotherhater

        I have two Android Tablets: Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 (2013).

        I would buy a Windows Tablet in a heart-beat if I could find one with LTE support though T-Mobile.

        Being able to utilize all of my Work and Home applications would be too much to be able to resist.

      • Matt Isaacs

        I carry a LG G2 and a Dell Venue 11 Pro. I used to have Acer a500 then a Samsung Note 10.1, with my experience I found the tab to repeat what I could already do on my phone, Windows tablets come into play for true desktop workloads. To each their own, but for me Android in the phone and windows on the tab is the perfect fit for my life.

        • JoshGroff

          I’ve come to the same conclusion, having a second android device didn’t really offer me many benefits besides a larger screen, so I went iOS for access to exclusive apps (games mostly.) Switched back to the nexus 4 as my daily driver last week, and have been waiting for either the one plus one or x+1 to launch.

          I still have a laptop for whatever I can’t manage to do on either mobile device, which pretty much amounts to rooting, jailbreaking, and online gaming.

          • Matt Isaacs

            I personally am not a huge fan of iOS, but I am glad to hear you found something that works for you. I think having two different os’s is the best method, you aren’t limited to just one set of apps. I went Windows on the tab mostly for work, but I have found it to be a great companion for many other tasks.

          • SerenityNow

            I agree as well. This is just my opinion, but I found Android to be a better OS for phones than for tablets. I had the Nexus 7 first and second gens, and while I liked the form factor of a smaller tablet, I ultimately found the tablet user experience on iOS to be superior. Main reason was because of the specific apps designed for tablets. I ended up giving the 2013 Nexus 7 to my sister and buying an iPad Mini with Retina (I had previously owned a couple older iPad versions before going the Nexus 7 route).

            To me, things like customization, widgets and Google Now are much more useful to me on my phone than on my tablet. From a value perspective, the Nexus 7 is clearly a great deal and destroys the iPad line. But in terms of the better tablet user experience I have to go with the iPad.

        • Jingling Johnny

          I completely agree.

    • pancakes

      If only there weren’t such a lack of OEM interest for Ubuntu on Android. Development has stalled because OEMs didn’t seem to be into the whole dual OS docking thing. I know it failed with Motorola’s Lapdock product but that was with Motorola’s own Linux spin (I think based off Ubuntu though). It’d be nice to have an official Ubuntu OS and just apt-get install all the stuff you want.

      • Ubuntu on Android is dead.

        • alan

          Thanks for just summarizing what he said.

    • Lucky Armpit

      I replaced my aging Android tablet with a Surface 2 RT and I love it. While the app support isn’t there, I can watch movies, play games, surf the Intertubes, and check email. Does everything I need. I got tired of waiting for Google to make up its mind on the Nexus 10.

    • Harold Crumb

      Same here. Looks like now this next generation of Windows tablets with Bay Trail Atom chips are the ones to get. I have a penabled Android tablet (a tablet with active pen) and it is OK but still without many nice pen capable apps it still (like most other tablets) a very nice toy. Yes, i am one of those that think active pens are important (the reason that I think the iPads are useless). Currently looking at the Lenovo Thinkpad 10 to replace my Android tablet and my laptop. But I am holding for Windows 9 since Windows 8 is truly a retarded OS.

  • Jérôme Besnard

    Use to have an OG Galaxy Tab 10.1 that my kids broke. My wife wanted a keyboard so since we wanted something cheap we ended up getting a Chromebook instead. I’d like a tablet some day again. whenever Google decides to replace the N10.

  • LosttsoL

    iPad Mini. I like it, but don’t use it for much more than surfing internet during commercial breaks on TV.

  • Nexus 7 grouper. Getting sluggish. Can’t wait for nexus 8!

  • Stephen De La Rosa

    Recently upgrade from OG Galaxy Tab to GPad and loving it. Q-Pair works great while I’m on the couch and my phone is charging somewhere else. The bigger screen is better for longer reads, videos and kids games.

  • Mitch Joa

    When I’m at school, I hardly ever use my tablet (always have my laptop in my backpack for class). But when I’m home for the summer my Nexus 7 (2013) gets used constantly, my ultrabook is just too bulky to carry around 😛

  • Kenny Li

    rocking an hp touchpad running android 🙂

  • JohnBergman

    Nexus 7 (2013). I use it more than I use my phone (HTC One M7)

  • Maxim∑

    I enjoy the iPad air, I did like the N7 though

  • schlanz

    I have the og nexus 7, looking to get an 8″ tab next either the nexus 8 or g pad 2 (assuming that will happen)

  • evltwn

    I have had 3 Nexus 7’s. 2012 16gb wi-fi, 32gb wi-fi/3g. Now I only have the 2013 32gb wi-fi only model. Nexus tablets are the only one I’ll own. Love the quick updates.

  • Had the OG Xoom, then the OG Nexus 7 and now the 2013 Nexus 7.

    Just waiting for a Nexus 10 update. I couldn’t care less about an 8 inch tab.

  • Captain Spaulding

    2012 Nexus 7, although I hardly use it any more since I got my G2 (hard to go back to that Tegra 3 after using the SD 800).

    • SplashMTN

      I’m in the same boat. I like the larger screen, but my G2 is soooo much faster it makes my Nexus 7 a pain to use.

    Note 10.1 2014 for school and LG G Pad 8.3 for books/browsing. Never use the GPad in all honesty. Might actually get rid of it once I get a LG G3…

  • bboyairwreck

    HP TouchPad!! Man I’m still rocking this $99 dollar tablet from back in the day. And it still runs perfectly

    • Daistaar

      Just updated mine to JC Sullins 4.4 Kit Kat and completely removed WebOS. One of the most amazing (non)Android tablets I’ve ever used!

  • Matt

    Waiting for the Nexus 8! 7 is too small and too close in size with my phone.

  • Bionicman

    yes i have an older Asus TF101 Transformer. I put Jelly bean on it a few months ago and it runs great now. Much better than it did with honeycomb or ics.

    • Mahercs

      I have the 101 as well, and it’s slow and buggy as hell now. Lots of freezes and resets. I assume you rooted it to get JB? I just ordered the 32gb N7 as a replacement tablet.

      • Bionicman

        yea i had to root to put JB. i almost bricked it a couple of times but i was able to recover it. it is amazingly fast for an older tablet. the battery life isn’t as great as when i first got it, but it still lasts 2-3 days depending on usage.

    • Raven

      I have a TF101 as well. It is amazing how much more that tablet is capable of with a decent ROM. Something was really botched in the I/O handling of the stock ROM that most other ROMs fix and make it much more usable.

  • EraserXIV

    Does the HP Touchpad count?

    • JSo

      I counted it

      • EraserXIV

        Heh, considering how old it is, it actually still run pretty smooth. I do find myself not using it too often though due to its size. I’ve been holding out for a tablet in the 8″ range that runs stock android (Nexus 8 pls?). IMO Apple got it right with the iPad Mini, the proportions on that are really nice.

        • JSo

          I like the 10 inch size. I would love a Nexus 10 but I don’t have the money for one.

    • roguereversal

      I count it because I can dual boot CM and webOS, but i really only use CM so it’s essentially an android tablet

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    No. I think navigation is clunky. Nothing really flows on a big screen

  • Mark Sanders

    Nexus 10.

  • I don’t currently own a tablet, I dropped mine down a flight of stairs and it sadly didn’t make it a month or so ago, I’ve been waiting until the next nexus tablet is announced before getting one… if the moto 360 doesnt take my money first.

  • Sentimental Fool

    I still have a TF101 with dock, but am thinking about upgrading to a Nexus 7. I think I’d like the smaller size a little better and probably use it more.

  • NookNook

    NOOK HD+ with AFN card

  • John

    What if you own more than 1… We have 3, one for each of us in the house. A Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, and an Acer A100.

  • JSo

    I voted yes even though, technically, my HP TouchPad isn’t an Android tablet. But it is running Android 4.4.2.

  • webharsh

    I got Gen 1 Kindle fire and Motorola Xoom. They are both sitting in cabinet waiting for the day I find real use for them.

  • Nick V

    I have the Nexus 7 (2013), but I am waiting and hoping for the 8″ variant for the only reason of reading books and magazines on it. The 7 is just not comfortable in that are yet. If Google doesn’t announce a new 8 inch tablet, I will get the LG GPe version instead

  • WalkerNA

    Nexus 7 (2013). Otherwise known as my “Clash of Clans machine”

    • T4rd

      Lol, this is the only reason I’d like to get an N7. Sometimes I feel my phone is a tad too small for clashing.

  • No, none really interest me besides the Note Pro 12.2 but I’m not paying $800 for it. I want to convert all my mag subscriptions to digital. Sucks trying to read a mag on a phone.

  • derk p

    i still have an old acer iconia 500… running 4.4.2 FTW!!!

  • MH

    xoom 32gb, Nexus 7 wifi, Nexus 7 13 LTE, nexus 10

  • I have a Toshiba Excite 7.7 and I love it, I wish there were more non-TouchWized tablets with OLED screens though because it is getting old and slower with only 1GB of ram.

  • Michael Chediak

    Had the Motorola Xoom, sold it and bought the Nexus 7 2nd gen. Sold the Nexus and bought the LG G Pad 8.3 GPE.

  • tomn1ce

    I have a G-Note 3 does that counts as a tablet -_-

  • Sandstorm

    I got a Tegra Note 7 because Tegra 4 FTW. I had to buy one because as a mobile gamer, my phone sucked.

    • James

      How’s the performance and battery life? What do you like most and least about it? Curious about Tegra but haven’t seen one in person.

  • Guest

    Have a Great Pad and love it

  • hyperbeatser

    OG Nexus 7 8GB!!!

  • Weber

    Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.
    That thing has a gorgeous screen, albeit with some lag because of the Magazine UI.

  • Richard Jackson

    I had a Transformer 101 for the longest time. I gave it to my mom thinking a new nexus 10 was going to drop soon. Now I sit here with no tablet but with egg on my face.

  • akazerotime

    OG XOOM thanks to bigpart and EOS reborn.

  • crussell

    I do not own one. I’m still trying to figure out why I need to own one.

  • chris125

    Nexus 7 (2013) use it for web browsing and games/videos

  • Islam Ȝamer

    Yes. Got one recently : Nexus 7 2013

  • Seith Keough

    Nexus 10, Asus tf201 and tf300.

    • Keith Taylor

      Any issues with the 201?

      • Seith Keough

        None, other than the screen cracked on me mysteriously.

  • Jonathan Williams

    G Pad 8.3, Sprint Tab 3 (stolen) 2013 Nexus 7 end route.

    • Guest

      Ha who would steal anything Sprint

  • James

    I had a Nexus 7, but ended up selling. The performance was great, but I just didn’t see a real need for a device in between my phone and computer. One less device to maintain, plus it allows me to save extra money to put toward new phones, which is really where I see the most usage.

    • James

      I should have clarified Nexus 7 2013

      • tomn1ce

        I have a G-Note 3 does that counts as a tablet o_o

    • Totally with you there dude. I had the OG Nexus 7, then upgraded to the 2013 model (for free because BestBuy had a glitch in their online ordering haha), but since then I really haven’t needed it. I either use my laptop or phone.

      • James

        Yeah man, I really loved my Nexus 7. A slick device in a nice package. But I just didn’t use it enough and decided to make the smart choice (for me at least). I’d rather upgrade my phone early.

      • Pete Arado

        Exactly. I have a Nexus 5, and the question I asked myself was “what can I do on a 7 inch tablet that I can’t already do on my phone?” A 10″ tablet never felt ergonomic to me (especially typing), so a Chromebook was my answer.

    • Raven

      I personally don’t want my phone to be any bigger than it absolutely has to be and still be Android based, therefore I went with a Moto X. The current flagships are all too ridiculously big for me. But then for home, work, and travel I use my Nexus 7 (21013) heavily for web browsing, shopping, movies, games, etc. I also have a top of the line 15.6″ laptop that I use for gaming and Android development. Each device has its own uses and I would hate to be without any of them. I can see where some people would be happy with a 6″ phone and then a 7″ tablet would seem a bit silly. But, each to their own. For me, it is a 4″, 7″, or 15.6″ device depending on my needs.

  • MichaelFranz

    OG Xoom….Still going strong

    • JoshGroff

      My sister still has my old xoom, screen is totally shattered now, but it was working the last time I checked. Definitely one of the best tablets I’ve owned.

  • Alan Paone

    I’ve got a 2013 nexus 7. I’m not sure I’ll replace it unless the 2014 model has an option for more storage, 32gb is just not enough content, especially when i can put a128gb card in my phone

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Loved the 2012 Nexus 7…though the screen cracked over a year ago. Didn’t like the 2013 as much so didn’t buy it. Looking forward to seeing what Google releases at I/O

  • Tony Byatt

    Nexus 10…

    Hoping for a sequel…

    • metoo!


      I have the 10 and the 2013 7, but am *really* hoping the HTC Nexus 8 rumors pan out…that would be fantastic.

  • Disqus_n00b

    Galaxy Pro 8.4

  • p8ntballah21

    I have a Xoom, but I haven’t used it since I bought a C720 Chromebook.

  • charesa39

    Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10 here. My son has a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. Also, I still have my HP TouchPad running CM, but rarely use it since I got my N10.

  • TopXKiller

    bc I own a T100 🙂

  • MikeSaver


  • OneForTheGoodDays

    Addendum: I do own one… it’s an OG Nexus 7 and it is borked beyond belief.

  • Michael

    probably going to buy an ipad.

    • Michael

      but i need the air to get cheaper

      • We love the atmosphere

        And less polluted…

  • Thanks for asking Tim. I currently have a GTab 10.1, Nexus 10 and 2 Nexus 7s (2012 and 2013). The only one that is used daily is the N7 2013. The rest sit in a drawer until I need them for development purposes.

    • And thanks for answering, Dave!

      • David Mann

        Thanks for thanking each other!

    • gotta use ’em all!

      N7 2013 comes back and forth to work with me (LTE is a must). The Nexus 10 gets used at home for watching Netflix/Hulu/etc and gaming.

      Didn’t buy the OG Nexus 7 as I was saving up for the Nexus 10. 🙂

      Some people are just made of money, I guess.. :p

      (Says the guy with an HTC One M7 and HTC One M8 in front of him)

  • Colin Huber

    Nexus 10. Unfortunately, I use the Chromebook and iPad more. It’s the only Apple product I’ll support.

  • sagisarius

    I do own one, but I really need something higher end. Hoping for that 8.9inch Nexus!

  • Silver Veloz

    Nexus 7 (2013) – WiFi only. Use it continuously (More than I thought I would).

  • Chad La Fleur

    Love my LG G Pad 8.3

    • John Bush

      Absolutely agree. Put CM on mine and use it every day.

  • AndrewScottRox

    Still use the first gen Nexus 7. It’s slow but I still like it.

  • Rich Wentz

    Do i own one, Yes. Do i use it, Nope.

  • Erik Wood

    I’ve taken the plunge on the Nexus 7 (2013) 32 GB White, but quickly sold it off as I didn’t use it as much. I think the app ecosystem is sorely lacking for tablet optimized apps. I love my HTC One M8, but for now, iPad still is used more in our home.

  • Pete Arado

    Had the 1st gen Nexus 7. Somehow ended up bricked, never replaced it. Bought a C720P touchscreen Chromebook, and it’s one of the best tech purchases I’ve ever made. Does what my tablet did and more.

    • Colin Huber

      I have the exact same Chromebook. It really has replaced the Nexus 10 for me.

      • Pete Arado

        Yep. For what I use it for, it’s perfect. The touchscreen is actually awesome – plus I get a real keyboard, and it’s all in a lightweight package.

        • Colin Huber

          Totally. Being able to haul it around (like a tablet) and not have to worry about damaging some $1,000+ machine is comforting.

          • James

            Good points all. Although I have to tell you, the Chromebook Pixel is one fine machine. Fits my needs and wants perfectly.

          • Colin Huber

            The light on it alone made me almost pull the trigger, haha. Impressive device.

          • James

            Yeah it’s pretty neat. Got a good deal too. My only issue is battery life, which to be honest sucks. But I’m rarely away from a charger for more than a couple hours and decreasing the backlight makes a huge difference. Course the price also means I’ll have to hang onto it for longer before I can justify an upgrade!

    • Do Want!

      So badly want one…

      Ehat are they running now for cost?

      • Pete Arado

        Between $260 and $280 for the C720P, depending where you buy.

    • bogy25

      I have to agree about the C720P – it really is an amazing device and does everything I need. The battery life is great and the touch screen….who would have thought I would be using this? The scroll and zoom – it is awesome! At work out of habit I sometimes touch the monitor lol. I upgraded my SSD to 128GB for $99 on Amazon – plus I have a 64GB micro USB drive – all light weight package – it really is my go to device. The kids have Amazon Kindles first generation – the wife and I share a Nexus 7 – heaven

  • agentorange1985

    Probably no one who reads this site, but I work for AT&T, and 90% of people own the crappy tablets that you can get for $80-$100.
