I have a gs3 and bought the tab2. I found it to be a bit on the slow side. I got it cause of the perfect in my opinion size for well....everything. But In about a month I plan on getting the galaxy note ii. And I HAVE to get my son a tablet so i just gave him my tab2. Ok...for the money and size which one is the best? I use them for:web surfing, games, email, movies, and reading (but haven't found the best reading app yet that measures up to the stock reader on the nook tablet). I am guessing someone will say nexus7. I was kinda stuck on samsung i guess since i love my gs3 so much. Only real reason i was thinking of getting the note ii is cause of the size i figured i could do more on it and the processor I am guessing it is a bit quicker than my gs3 is.
