- Features Full Jellybean Android OS gives this tablet a crazy feature set. It's practically a full linux install.
- Display It's a bright, beautiful display. Much better than iPad 1/2, and better than any other Android tablet I've seen.
- Battery life Easily lasts 1-2 days, even with pretty heavy use. Might not last as long as iPad, but awesome for Android.
- Ease of use Much easier to use Jellybean than Honeycomb. Good OS for a tablet.
- Storage capacity I paid up for 16GB, but I don't know that I needed to do that. Google Play/cloud services really work here. Still wish I could add an SD card.
- Design and form factor It's slick. It looks really nice, and the 7" screen really works for books, games, and video.
- Portability (size / weight) Really light, really thin. Smaller dimensions than my paper planner, back-pocket-able ... just awesome!
- Durability Seems just fine. Back is sturdy but soft, and you can even open it up to fix things!!
I was tempted by this product for a long time, and finally decided to purchase it to replace my aging (and now unsupported) original iPad. It's amazing. I should have bought this months ago. The screen is beautiful, the form factor is sleek and stylish, and the Jelly Bean OS makes it work wonders. I use this primarily for reading, email, games, and media.
