does anyone here have an android tablet they actually use? if so, can you explain to me what it's useful for? since android doesn't have tablet specific apps like iOS does (and no, I hate apple so I'm not gonna buy an iPad).

I'm eyeing the S5e but I'm not sure if it will remain useful.

I use an iPad as a web browser in bed and sometimes for reading pdfs or other learning material. I use it on a daily basis for several years for those things and it’s comfy, but anything more iOS is too limiting for. Even downloading files is usually a problem. There are no good android tablets unfortunately.

Large tablets are dead. For $400 any shitty laptop with a keyboard is infinitely more useful and has way better specs.

beds are better for sleeping in. chairs are better for when browsing porn.

yikes. I just have two sheets of paper-towel on my desk to shoot on, and one handed browsing is a lot better if you don't have to hold the screen in your hand and are looking at your big monitor and using a mouse/keyboard with your other hand.

Get a Surface Pro. They run Linux just fine if you want that. I use Windows 10 LTSC on my SP4. ARM tablets are next to useless. I had an iPad Mini 3 that I gave to my gf because it was useless for anything but emails and pdfs, and was mediocre for those tasks. And no, iOS does not have tablet specific applications, even if they say they support iPads. It just means the apps have proper GUI scaling, which should be the default for all devices. Whatever GUI toolkit they use must be pure ass.

Surely you must be talking about the DOS leftovers held together with ideas stolen from VMS that Microsoft calls "Windows" despite it being neither open nor transparent in any way.

It's not 1999. All Debian based distros offer a graphical front-end for package management and desktop environments handle most other stuff.

If you are a manga weeb, an android tablet is the best purchase you will ever make even if this is the only app you will ever use on it.

>> No.70972024

Does the website say the apk is decompiled and the parts are individually scanned? This would be like detecting someone reusing a common payload but is also trivial to detection. If the website says it watches system calls, then I would be impressed but I don't know of any third party Android antivirus that does this.

I have a Galaxy Tab which I think is 8 inch or something.

It's ideal as a half-way browsing device for when I'm not at my full PC, and not away from the house on the phone.

So I use it for browsing before bed, in the morning, in the kitchen and garage. Occasional video chats with family.
