I might be too excited for this because I wanna play this on a big screen.

Thinking of having 2 accounts. Banking seems faster this way not to mention dual benefits.

As someone that plays on an n7, be aware that if your device is not "supported" there are some oddities that you need to live with. In my case, up until last month, I had to live with some weird duplicated pixels as my screen is longer than what Fanta is expecting.

That said, enjoy your android tablet of choice. I'm not sure the resolution of the sprites get better on a larger screen.

Dang. Now I got few things to consider. Thanks

I have a Toshiba Thrive on ICS and I have noticed Fanta gives FAR more connection errors compared to my iPhone/iPad.

I'd buy the tablet with the features you want. If I were looking for an android tablet today, I might get the ASUS Transformer Inifinity or whatever the heck they called it. As I recall, Galaxy Tab 2 is also very nice. If the Tab 2 is the one that allows 2 apps open at a time, keep in mind that only applies to 6, I think, apps.

Madman is also correct that Fanta feels like it throws connection errors more easily on Android than iOS.

Same here. I am thinking of getting one. I am impressed with Galaxy Note 2. I don't have to squit to see it like I did with my old iPhone 3G....

iPhone 3G seems hazy. Galaxy Note 2, though it is my carrier (AT&T), has the connection problem, but runs smoother and faster than my iphone. And no crashes. Some of the sprites looked better on iPhone due to the smaller screen, where as sometimes the pixels of the edges of the sprites bug me if I pay attention too much to the detail.

I'm using Galaxy S2 and there has been not a single problem. I think Samsung products are pretty good compared to other tablets. I just need the tablet for notes, music and fantasica. I'm sure the tab2 is more than enough for my needs and it's also cheap.

I'm green with envy. Razz I'd love to get myself a Galaxy Tab 2, but can't afford to spend that kind of money at the moment. Well, I'll definitely get the Galaxy Tab 3 - or however they'll call it - once it's released. *determined*

Congrats on the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab 2.
They were always the biggest seller amongst tablets in the store I
worked at. iPads came second which is amazing considering how
most people call tablets iPads due to apples marketing.

To me personally, Samsung >>> Apple. I have been in love with every single Samsung product I've owned, and all the Apple products that have been paraded in front of me so far have left me indifferent. Me and Apple just don't seem to click, for some reason. Never have. :/ Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I have no affinity whatsoever with Macs and Mac OS? *PC girl*

I need a tablet that can work in every computer and manageable. Samsung will always be the better option in terms of use. Apple products are just too hyped. Anything that does not support flash will not be useful to anyone who work with a huge loads of files and entertainment.

Not to bash Android, but even Adobe pulled Flash support for most Android devices. If the custom ROM didn't come pre-installed with Flash, you need to find someone else's executable and side load it.

For what you need to do, I agree that Samsung was probably the best choice for you. And gratz on the new device.

adobe has (i believe) stopped supporting Flash on mobile devices. they realise its crap. no offense to Flash fans... but that is really what is happening.

I don't know why anyone else would still be using flash in this kind of generation. There's a reason we have apps now in the first place.

In fact the only thing you have to do is download the flash apk from adobe site and install it. Not really that hard. And adobe pulled flash from android because they were unable to make it work the way they wanted on mobile devices, so even if there was anyone to bash, it would be adobe not android.

I must have mis-understood your desire to have flash for your tablet. My apologies.

That is one way to look at it. From the perspective of, "I went Android because I need flash and flash is not supported on Apple devices." that particular line of reasoning will not hold true as devices move to newer versions of Android.

As far as sideloading the apk and having it just work, maybe I did not get the proper apk, but flash only works sometimes for me on my N7. Not every app that can use flash is recognizing that I have flash installed. But as you said, it is more reasonable to blame Adobe for Flash being how it is.

All good. We are sometimes doomed by our own assumptions. Wink

I have a Galaxy S2 and it is the best phone I have ever had.
I have always stayed away from apple products myself because
I enjoy the freedoms android provides. So many seem to love
apple products but I cannot see why. I don't mind mac computers
but windows and linux will always be my most frequently used
operating systems.

Lets face it, a robot is better than an apple.

K, when I was getting my phone fixed, the tech support guy suggested getting an Asus as opposed to Samsung Galaxy Tablet ...

Any thoughts on Asus?

How's your Samsung holding up?
