Ipad or Samsung? What to get

by Rata » Wed Aug 13, 2014 12:34 pm

Im going to get a new tablet and im wondering what to get.
I would prefer to get me a samsung, but im worried about compability.
My main criteria is that it is able to play bouth the tours and 360 vid.

Any thoughts?

By experience i mean that an iPad provides a better long-term reliability. All kind of tours and videos of the post-flash aera play on them
and you can store tours locally on the pad for presenting them off-line.

For me it´s no question: iPad.

I have a ipad and imac but also pc's. I take what works for me.
A friend recently bought a Samsung Tabpro 8.4, a nice screenformat, as high as my ipad but less width, very practical. But when I look at the screen and see Android......not my cup of tea.

Yeah, im not too happy about this myself. I mean, its fine if your A4 and like glossy things. Wery fiddely to get under its skin. :D
Having a little issues with the beta kolor eyes on it. Allthough it seems to be the app not the tablet.
Works fine til you add your own movies , then it crashes when you try to load a diferent movie.
Panotours seems to be working well. Not tried the offline wersion yet but shortly.

As for mac, dunno. ive used mac and pc, but i allways fall down on pc. allthough, it seems im runing linux too now. lol (on the tablet) Or a linux pretending to be windows 8 that is. O.o someone likes to do things simple? hard? i dont even know. lol

Depends om what you need: do you want to
1) Play around with it . .
or
2) Doing WORK with it.

Doing work you need a reliable gadget. Not just a funny one.

I would prefer to get me a samsung, but im worried about compability. I want to mostly use it for normal stuff, nothing too complicated. I read here that there could be compatibility issues. So I wanted to post and ask for your opinions.

I'd go for samsung. Based on my experience I would have to say it's more reliable than having an ipad.
Compatibility wise, I haven't really run into compatibility issues so far. If you can't decide, why not just get both? =D
