Yeah, it's really nice.

The only gripes I have so far are 1.) The notification bar is really small, so when using a case that blocks my fingers from the surface above the screen, I often have to swipe 3-4 times to pull it down, sometimes accidentally triggering the search bar. and 2.) The built in Play Books app is really unresponsive to page flipping, I have to make a significant effort to get it to actually turn a page. I'd prefer a button over having to swipe that hard.

Both of these may be due to the fact that I have significantly larger hands than the koreans that designed it though.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

That doesn't sound like too big of problems at all.
It's getting harder for me not to buy one. >.>

I have one more complaint - there's a grey search bar at the top of the home screen that you can't get rid of unless you install a custom launcher. Other than that, I am very pleased. Well worth the price.

This thing is also GREAT for reading manga/comics on. I got an app called PerfectViewer and it's wonderful.

Spleen installed a mod that lets us access the forum through an app called Tapatalk.

Yeah, the quality is crystal clear, sound is clear without artifacts as well. The battery doesn't hold up well for a 1080p movie, but on lower res stuff it lasts quite a bit longer.

I imagine most of my stuff would be 720. I'm kinda sad they don't have a SD card slot.

I thought it would be a big issue for me, but Dropbox works well enough.

I might have to practice that with my computer a bit to see how it works for me.

You can also use Google Drive, same thing but better integration. I only use Dropbox cause I already had it.

Hey, I don't suppose you could try this: https://play.google.....fbd.activities and this: https://play.google....odesk.autocadws and let me know how they work. I could PM you some drawings if you need.

Comes across as snappy and responsive. Only annoying thing is that it doesn't keep parts of the drawing that aren't in view in memory, so if you're zoomed in, you have to wait a half second for it to load when you pan over.

Good.

The memory thing sucks, but it shouldn't be a big deal.
