My main problem has been with having to link with itunes for any kind of music. Along with the forced updates. I had a perfectly good 2nd generation ipod touch still worked perfectly. However all the new apps arnt supported on it so its basically a crappy mp3 player now that is required to be synched to itunes which i despise. Not to mention having to pay for more storage space and not being able to easily swap batteries.

Ive never had a problem with droid, still using a droid x2 as my phone. Can upload any music i want without having to go through itunes. All apps are still supported. Can easily buy new batteries for it when one gets bad, can simply buy a new micro sd when one gets full.

For simplicity to use in a lawn care business apple may be the best choice. But i would still be nervous about carrying around a $300-$500 tablet as apposed to a $100-$400 android tablet.

I haven't brought a phone battery in 10 years.

I never had issues putting any music into iTunes, but we use pandora now.

I still have an android. Note II. Debating on replacing it with the nexus 5 or new s5

Yeah, a Big Chief Tablet is a LOT cheaper. ( )

OK, I dated myself, but some (here) will NEVER know.

Best advice: find something you like and are comfortable with.

Dont laugh, but I went back to blackberry, I always missed the keyboard.. the apps suck on it but all I use it is for phone,text,email....
