Wednesday Poll: Do You Own an Android Tablet?

nexus 7 2013

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.

    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

  • d790

    Motorola Xoom and Samsung galaxy tab pro 8.4 (googlefied)

  • Nikos Koufos

    Where’s the will buy option?

  • Dr4g0nf1y

    Still rocking the Moto Xoom here!

  • JMonkeYJ

    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.
