Need suggestions on a tablet

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently have an ASUS Transformer Prime. While the device is great and sturdy, there are a couple of worrying things about it for me.

1) The Customer Service - 3 months for an RMA is not and should not be standard practice.

2) Screen Ghosting/After-image/Burn-in - I have experienced this after having my tablet for two weeks, with the brightness as low as possible, or adjusting this per application so I can at least read books, play games, browse the web and read e-mail.

3) The lag of input, and the iffy webcam are also a kicker.

I understand that this tablet was produced last year so it won't have all the niceties that other tablets that are coming out this year have (higher screen resolution).

However, I am looking for suggestions on a tablet, because I don't think this tablet is going to get better, but worse. I am not experiencing any issues such as those with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Can anyone recommend me a new tablet that is either 7" or 10.1", and that has ICS on it? Or those that will come out in the future (from present day to winter holidays).

I would like to stick with Android.

I recently purchased a Kindle Fire which is exactly what I need to augment my Smart Phone and laptop. If you are looking for a tablet that meets the three rolled into one. I like the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230394

It is reasonable for the price and has the features I look for. The only thing keeping me from purchasing this model is I would rather wait for next generation android models that support 1080P video with 1920 x 1080 resolution. If this is not a concern for you then the model I posted has a quad core for 399.00.

Right now only IPad has resolutions higher than 1920 x 1080.

Models in the Future: http://www.androidauthority.com/toshiba-excite-7-7-quad-core-tablet-release-date-77242/

Since the road maps are varied and as time goes on tablets will get more powerful, I suggest tweaking your current tablet and extend the use until the improved versions come out. I am in the same boat as you. I am looking for a powerful tablet that rolls my Kindle Fire, Smart Phone, and Laptop into a 7 inch or 10 inch version. Until the Android tablet manufactures add 1920 x 1080 to their tablets, I will be waiting to upgrade.

You're recommending him the cheap, cut down version of the tablet he already has rolleyes.gif


If you want a decent 7" then try the Galaxy Tab 2. It's $250 and comes with ICS. Its basically a Kindle Fire with the GPS, Gyroscope, Bluetooth, and microSD slot added back in.

Otherwise if you're unhappy with your TF Prime then you're going to have to wait for the 1200p tablets to arrive, because the Prime is the current flagship 10.1" tablet. They shouldn't be more than a month away, and its worth the wait, especially for the Krait powered LTE version of the Transformer Infinity.

I understand I stated some less-powerful tablets. I attempted to use those as base examples. I posted some links for him to read and research. I understand he has a powerful tablet. I just failed to state simply "wait for newer models." Thanks for the corrective post.

As a former Transformer Prime owner and current Ipad 3 owner and former(and still pretty current) Apple hater, I recommend the Ipad 3, I'll always stick with Android for my phone but I was really sick and tired of the Primes problems and I think iOS works better on a tablet, and I've enjoyed gaming on it more than I thought I would
