Looking for a new tablet

Hi, 

 

Im currently looking for a new tablet and I’m either going to go with the basic 2018 iPad or the tab s4 as both are around the same price (iPad would be 128gb plus an Apple Pencil brings up the price to match the tab s4).

 

it will be used mainly as a multimedia device and for drawing so support for a pen/stylus is mandatory 

 

I use a iPhone XS every day but I’m open to using an android tablet if it’s a better value. 

 

Which one do you guys think is a better value or do you know of anything better? My budget is €600

considering google isn't focused on tablets anymore, i'd say go with the ipad for better software updates in the future...

for clarification, that article doesn't specifically say that android tablets won't be a thing anymore, but with the iPad you'll at least know that you'll get updates for a while.

In my experience Android has never been a proper fit for a tablet. The iPad should be a good tablet for your use case. The only thing I greatly dislike about the non-pro iPads is the horrendous speakers, but that's just me being a nitpick.

Surface go perhaps? Its a pretty neat package

 

 

This budle should include everything you would need

 

nvm you probably have to get the 4GB 128gb model instead to fit the pen

I’m actually leaning towards the tab s4, it has most of the features I’m looking for and because it’s android it allows for different movie apps that aren’t available on apple devices for various reasons (that’s a huge thing for me because Netflix is usually pretty scarce with things I actually want to watch). 

 

Software updates arent too high on my list of priorities as long as it does everything I need it to do. Realistically I’ll only be keeping it for a year or two before upgrading

Not a fan of windows on a tablet, iOS or android are all I’m really considering. A couple people in work use surface pros as their work computers and I’m just not that impressed by them
