    Nexus vs ipad air

    While the nexus is made for andriod, the ipad is made for apple. Its that simple. Apples ipad is great for entertainment while the nexus is made more for work. The nexus uses a quadore llx chip. Great for work because its power saving. The battry is a itel powersource made to last long. How. Easy when you open an app, the battery relased little bits of power at a time. This is just enough power to keep the device on snd the app running. The ipad however uses much more power. Running on a lithioum battry, it uses much more power. Apple believes in making all the apps running at the same time. This makes it better for quicker and faster processing. The ipad also has a two mpg dolby speaker while the nexus runs on asuses llg mpg core two speaker. Nexus recieves more updates than ios, but also the nexus has a much bigger selection of apps. Also the ipad has a bigger selection of pixels per inch on the screen. What the most noticible feature of the nexus is the way the nexus can remember you. Ipad has apple pay while the nexus has all the google products. Also the ipad has a better way with apple accounts. Also apple people have a very great size of choices to do...............THE WINNER IS.................... APPLES IPAD PLEASE POST WHO YOU THINK THAT THE WINNER IS.

    You may want another book too.

    I have other books by this excellent author but this one leaves basic questions unanswered. Can I use a fluid on the rag when I clean the screen? How do I restore an icon to the favorites bar on the bottom of the screen after I inadvertantly deleted it? How long does it take to charge? I have two magazine subscriptions that will display their covers on Zinio but give me an error message when I try to read them because the Adobe reader is not compatible. This book has some interesting suggestions about telephoning, etc., but it is no substitute for trial and error learning.
