screen sizes on tablets?


Novice Member
Hello I am wanting a tablet, I am unsure what size, is it a case of just holding a 7 inch closer to you than a 10 inch tablet? Surely it's down to the pixels per inch?

Does anyone prefer a 7 inch tablet to a 10 inch.

I want a decent tablet and the nexus 7 is £99 and the tab pro 10.1 is about £199. I am trying to justify the extra 100 quid and was just thinking if both tablets have full 1080p resolution I just hold it closer?

What are your thoughts?

I had the Nexus 10 and 7, prefer the 7 due to size and portability. Depends what you want it for just home use?
Go down to PCworld etc and try them out for size

Nexus 7 is a very nice tablet. Especially at that price. My wife stole mine. :(


What are you trying to do? If you are using a spreadsheet or want more than one window on screen then you need a lot of screen real estate. If you are carrying it around then it helps if it is small and light.
