So I have owned a Nexus 7 2013 for more than 8 months now, and having upgraded to it from the 2012 model - I am absolutely in love with the tablet: its weight, its formfactor, its screen, and so on, so I don't regret spending 600$ on it
But recently I though about having a bigger screen in a rather easy-to-use device as far as the weight and portability goes, and my Nexus 10 doesn't quite fit the criteria because it is a 10" tablet and it weighs ~600g, which is twice as much as N7 weighs, so it's not a great bed companion
And then I remembered about this thing - the G Pad 8.3, and it certainly looks like the best Android tablet in this formfactor. But having looked through the specs - I found that it has only 16 gigs of internal storage (as comparded to 32gigs on my N7) even though it has a Micro SD support
But with KitKAt I heard that Google broke the access to external storage, meaning that I'm left with these 16gigs only
Anyways - here's my question: is it worth switching over to the G Pad from the Nexus 7?
I like that both tablets have same screen resolution, that they are still fairly light (~330g for G Pad), and I'm not afraid of losing mobile data capabilities, since I use my N7 at home where I always have my WiFi enabled
But I'm kinda afraid about the internal/external storage - is it true that I'll run out of space pretty quickly just by installing big games and lots of apps? How does this tablet (or, well, any KK device with SD support) handle the two storages?
I saw a module for better handling of external storage - but still, does it mean that the games will store their caches (like Asphalt 8) on the extSD instead of internal storage?
That is pretty much my only concern regarding this device, as I saw that the development is fairly active so I will probably not be much behind the Nexus line as far as AOSP builds go (especially since it's officially supported by CM)
Thanks in advance
