iPad and a Note II, sounds like a good combination?

by GizmoAdept / March 6, 2013 3:28 PM PST

I've got a Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone or phablet, whatever you call it! I've even got an iPad 2 with me. Now my question is that will an iPad, in any way supplement or complement the Note II? Or is the Note II enough for me. I'm a 11th standard student, so please tell me which is better for me or is both helpful to me? If I can evaluate one of them, then which one? Because my Dad's ready to take the iPad if I don't want it! I don't want to lose something good, but I really don't know if its gonna be useful!
Please help me!! Thanks in advance!!

If you tell us all the things you do with the iPad you have with you, we may be able to tell how helpful it is and that you absolutely need it.
If you do nothing with your iPad it's a much more difficult story to not let your Dad use it.

Usage of Note II and iPad
by GizmoAdept / March 6, 2013 10:51 PM PST
In reply to: Re: Note and iPad

My usage is essentiially:
1. Presentations
2. Browsing on the 'net' for studies and surfing purposes
3. Taking notes (writing / typing, my typing being faster) related to studies and planning my work and play
4. Clicking pics and sharing them (while on the go)
5. Minor gaming (virtually not-at-all)
6. Emailing stuff
7. Video chatting and other means of communication (eg. WhatsApp, Gtalk, ChatOn, Facebook Messenger etc.)
And moreover, my iPad is the only-WIFI version, it doesn't have 3G.
Keeing these points in mind, roughly which one, of the two devices will assist me or will both help in anyway? I'm basically facinated by the iPad, nothing much. I'm more into portability and versatality. I ain't sure as to which (or both) should help me do it :-(!
That virtually makes much of my usage. Thanks in advance for your help!
