So its been more or less a year since the nexus 7 2013 came out. And rumors have been there online about a 'nexus 8' coming out soon. I honestly do not care about that since it will then become a rat race of sorts.
My dilemma is that I need to buy a tablet, a week from now, for studying purposes. Like mandatory buying. Since there will be a lot of reading and watching videos(~6 hours a day in the library), my first thought was getting this tablet. Since the screen resolution is off the charts for a 7 inch screen. Plus its budget friendly.
But since I already have a nexus 5 (I have tried watching my videos on it but it burns my eyes after a couple of hours, plus the videos are SD), would it really make a difference to buy this tablet? Any advice/input would be appreciated.
Oh and where I live, I cant get my hands on a un-sealed nexus 7 so I cant compare the screen size versus my nexus 5.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Another tablet I thought of was Ipad Mini 1st gen (non retina). But then again, Apple official stop mini 1st gen support end of this year..
