My first tablet was a cheap one from a Chinese company bought in 2014, it was slow and crashed a lot, but at the time I used it for reading scribd books and the occasional email browsing.

4/5 years ago I bought a samsung Tab 8 Pro and although it still works fine I recently got very frustrated with it, it has an old version of android and I found that I cannot install the apps that I wanted, I wanted to had hoopla and overdrive and some TV apps so I could read the library books and see tv shows and was unable, I tried to updated it, there are tons of instructions on the internet but it involved a lot of steps so I gave up.

I was looking to buy a new tablet but I like things to last a long time, I donít really care for the new shiny models, as long as it works well for my needs Iím happy, and It pains me to throw away something that is still in good conditions, and a new android would mean that in a few years I would have the same exact problem, I was considering an ipad, and got lucky and was gifted one.

What I do notice is that the tablet is slow, not sure if it is worse now than when it was newer or if it was always like that but I only notice it now because I have another device to compare it, I notice that it takes a lot longer to connect and to open apps. I still use it though, it sits on the living room for me to play or browse my email when watching tv, and it has all my cooking books, I donít want to have to pass those to the ipad, too much work, as long as it works I will use it.
