    Hi, I can't decide what to get, any help will be very much appreciated.

    Looking for a tablet, thinking about getting rid of my printed magazine and switch to digital. Not sure about 9.7 or larger screen, should I look for an 4:3 ratio??

    choices for now:
    Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9,7 po
    Galaxy Tab 4 10,1 po
    ACER ICONIA A3-A20 10.1"
    Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5"

    Price Range: maximum of $150-$400, might change..
    Screen: not sure 9.7" or 10"
    expandable memory through SD or micro SDHC
    primary uses: reading magazine
    secondary uses: multimedia - video/music/internet, some skype

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum

    I have the Galaxy Tab S 10.5, after having done hands on with others, and I'm very pleased with it. But, size and weight may be a personal choice on your part.

    LG G PAD 2.8.0 has 8 inches screen which seems quite shorter in comparison to Samsung Tabs. So for reading purpose LG G PAD does not satisfy me too.

    Bottom line, personal taste is all that really matters.:) Glad to hear you're happy with your choice.

    Glad that is working out you. I wanted a larger screen but had to settle for a 9.7 Samsung Tab S2. I now seam to use it in the portrait mode more than my past tablet. The S2 would be great for magazine reading if you ever change again.
