Since it's that time of year again, we're looking at presents and Beloved, very kindly, wants to upgrade my tablet.

 

The thing is, I'm not convinced that a newer tablet is especially necessary given my current - so I need people more technically minded than I to counter Beloved's shiny addiction.

 

My tablet  is

 

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

 

One of these: http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/mobile-devices/galaxy-note/tablets/GT-N8010EAABTU

 

Beloved is thinking of the new google Nexus 9


One of these: https://play.google.com/store/devices/details/Nexus_9_32_GB_Wi_Fi_Indigo_Black?id=nexus_9_black_32gb_wifi

 

To my untrained eye, the difference between the two appears to be pretty negligible - and certainly not worth £399.

 

 

Other things to note: 

The smaller screen doesn't bother me

I do not need 3G, 4G or any number of Gs.

My current tablet DOES have a damage screen (all the colours are wonky after being dropped) which means I want to get this one repaired anyway... which may end up cheaper.

 

By all means do run in and say "no, forget Samsung and google, you need this one!" but I do prefer Android over IOs and Windows

 

So techie people, help me out - is Beloved being wise and prudent as well as generous? Or is his shiny addiction overcoming reasonable common sense?
