My two gripes with this one is the backlight bleed and the lack of intelligence on the touch display when holding the tablet by its thin bezels. The iPad does a better job of ignoring a thumb that is hold the device while using a finger to scroll. This one doesn’t do that and assumes the thumb is a legitimate interaction with the display.
Otherwise performance is decent. The device is fast and response, the display looks great and on par with the iPad (minus the back lighting issues), great battery life and the build quality is top notch.
