    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. ( :laugh: )

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

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

    same thing here, had the note 2 nothing but problems.. had the galaxy tab was nice but my ipad IMO is wayyyy nicer..

    im surprised no one has mentioned android and googles harvesting of ALL your information on your phone.. I mean every app of theres you use they are getting all your data... F that...

    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....
