    "there is a solid reason why Samsung Galaxy Tabs are one of the best selling Android tablets of all time. If you remove the bloatware, you'll get the best Android experience you will ever have. believe me. I abuse all the G-Tabs that I bought and use it almost 12-15 hours a day. Surfing the net or playing. Really worth the high price tags. "

    "This tab is pretty much responsive. Interface is cool too. I really like the 64GB internal storage that's why I bought this. Although the only issue is that the battery life is not as enduring as other tabs out there. In my experience, I could use this on data mode for around 5 hours only."

    "I gave this kind of a tablet to my niece, very bidget friendly, and you get slighlty more than what you pay for. I bought five Lenovo gadgets in my life and only one of them lasted earlier than i hoped for. so i guess in terms of reliability this one is a great solution. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that a lot of people didn't believe Android would become the influential company it is today? Android, the most used operating system for mobile devices, was invented by a small team of developers in 2004. A team led by Andy Rubin, whom the Android name was based on, once went to Samsung to get funding for putting the operating system on the market, but the latter didn't think the OS would reach its potential. “‘You and what army are going to go and create this? You have six people. Are you high?’ is basically what they said," recalled Rubin of his meeting with the Korean company. Two weeks later, Google bought Android for $50 million and Rubin. With the influx of money, Rubin and his team were able to improve Android and use it as operating systems of mobile phones. The partnership has been beneficial to both since Android has reportedly become a $66 billion company. Talk about a missed opportunity for Samsung. LOL.

The driving force behind Android's success is it is an open source program that can be used by all phone manufacturers, unlike Apple's iOS that is exclusive to its own devices. Another factor to Android's success is the millions of apps that can be installed on these devices. Many of these apps are even optimized for Android tablets with large screens. Want an irony? one of the top-selling Android tablets of all time is the - wait-for-it - Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    "Exceptional hardware for a tablet, well that's expected from a Sony, but still it should be mentioned. You'll be getting what you paid for. Outstanding display and audio, and reliability, but just above average when it comes to software. "
