An opionated comment: Galaxy Tab 3 vs. iPad2

Android vs. iPad

+++Android Galaxy Tab 3 10.1+++
Galaxy Gab 3 omes with Polaris Office
Has a more sensible keyboard with numbers, visible cases, no auto cap after backing up like iPad
Power cord stays in better
Same brightness percentage as iPad is brighter on Galaxy Tab 3
Has folders built-in, of course
Natively allows division of sound levels among three areas 
Higher resolution screen, much sharper

+++iPad2 iOS6+++
iPad keyboard slightly larger 
Android keyboard laggy
Built-in Android word app quirky and has no email out function (?!)
Android apps have to keep being killed or affects battery life
Android keeps reopening apps that have been killed using 3rd party killer ("Simple Task Killer")
Google Play store pretty weird, have go use 3rd party app to log out ("Log Out!")
iPad sleeps apps not being used so don't have to have constant viligence (I hear the latest Android version does this now too, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is still on Jelly Bean and can't be updated, presumably due to the processor)
Android updates Google-branded apps even when you set Auto Update off (Settings-->About Device-->Software Update-->Auto Update)
Android has on way to move cursor in between characters when typing
